Congratulations Lisa!!

I just got a positive test on Monday too! I have a 2 yo son who *just* nightweaned a couple weeks ago. I've had wacky cycles for the past few months, so I called an ob/gyn office yesterday and requested a blood test. Hopefully I'll find out today if I have normal progesterone levels ... crossing my fingers ...

I am feeling pertty good, a little tired, nauseous and crampy but overall pretty good.

Congratulations to both of you!!

Truvie, do you know when you O'ed or when your EDD is?

My dd is 3.5 still nursing twice a day, but because of my meds I don't have much if any milk left, she is truly just comfort nursing. I think I want her to wean before the new baby comes, but if she still needs to nurse twice a day I will let her continue as long as she wants

Here is a link to my pregnancy chart! http://www2.fertilityfriend.com/home/9999

I'm pretty sure I ovulated on May 19th. -- edited to note that I mean May 12th!

My son still nurses a lot during the day -- should I be concerned about him nursing too much? My luteal phase has been only 7 days for the past 8 or 9 months. I nightwean and, bam, I'm pregnant next cycle ... makes me kind of worried. I had a miscarriage a couple years ago too, which just increases my worrying.

The ob's office got the results of my blood work, but didn't have a doctor available to "interpret" the numbers. The receptionist wouldn't just read them to me, argh!

If your son is nursing so much that he isn't eating solids I would encourage you to work on his solid intake. Most women lose thier milk supply during pregnancy, some as early as 9 weeks. If he eats solids well I probably wouldn't worry about his nursing a lot.

Just saying hello We got our BFP on Tuesday...thinking the due date will be 2/2/05 but if this little one is anything like Big Sis we're looking more toward 2/10 or 2/15.

I'm feeling pretty good so far, had a bit of nausea this morning. I can't say that I've ever been this happy to be sick lol!

Hi! I'll post here too! I am officially due the end of Jan, but I'm expecting to go early february! Can't wait to get to know everyone.

Hello! I wanted to throw my hat in the ring too! I'm pregnant with #1 and so excited! The due date calculators say I should be due Jan 30, but I know I ovulated on CD 18, so I'm guessing early Feb is more accurate.

I had an early miscarriage in April (6 weeks), and this is actually my first cycle after the M/C, so I'm a little nervous about that. We weren't planning to try until next month, but it happened this month and I'm thrilled. My DH thought he would be really upset and nervous but is actually really excited despite himself.

Since it's my first, I am looking forward to hanging out with all you experienced mamas so I can get your advice on stuff! Plus, we aren't telling anyone until we hear a heartbeat, and I want to talk about it! We are staying at my in laws this weekend, and I am just dying to tell, but I know I should wait.

Chiku, congrats!!!! I don't know how you're going to manage to keep your secret...that will be so hard! I can totally understand where you're coming from in regard to the miscarriage. We had one at 6 weeks in March and I'm scared right now too...just holding my breath waiting to hear that little thump thump!!!

I had a miscarriage right before I got pregnant with my ds, so I'm nervous too. The morning I got the positive test, I told my husband, "okay, we're waiting until we see a heartbeat to tell anyone!" By the end of the day we had told all immediate family and my two best friends.

I have some mild nausea in the mornings, but otherwise no symptoms. Even though I logically know that I'm only 4-1/2 weeks along, I'm constantly thinking, "why aren't I exhausted? How come I'm not more hungry?" etc etc. My hcg levels are going to be tested twice next week and I hope that settles me down.

I don't know how I missed this thread the other day!

I got my BFP on Friday, and my beta came back at 92 for 12 DPO. I conceived on 150mg clomid so I am anxious to find out if there is more than one baby in there!

So far my only symptoms are really sore bbs, cramping and mild fatigue.

I go back Tuesday for another beta, type/cross and hopefully a progesterone level - I'm going to ask about that.

We've told everyone - there's no way I could keep it a secret since everyone already knows what we've been through to get pg. YAY for Feb Babies!!

I'll toss my hat in too!! Got my bfp this morning. We've had 3 m/c's, one at 7 weeks, one at 10 weeks and a chemical pregnancy at 4 and a bit weeks.
This one was conceived through IUI and I am on baby aspirin and progesterone suppositories and will start heparin injections today--I know not terribly natural, but after what we've been through, we both feel that this will be our last chance, if we fail again, we will look into adoption, it is just too heartbreaking to loose one after another.
So here I am, thrilled but shaking in my boots!
Oh and I am Shannon, dh is Steve (actually he's not dh yet, we get married on June 19th--you may now puke on your groom :
