i have been getting positives since friday but they are kinda light. my chart, first ever triphasic, is a thing of beauty so i guess i should trust that more!! my due date will be may 02, 2005 which is my dad's birthday. i had a miscarriage in june and so far i feel good about this one. i never felt great about the last one. something just felt off. this time i have sore boobies and am HUNGRY all the time. forgot what that was like. i am obsessing over cloth diapers and spending too much on em!

sooooo, is there anyone else out there?? gotta update my sig!!

After getting such a light line for a week that I thought I was hallucinating, today I finally got a clear positive!! I'm sooooo happy. We had a mc in April at 14 weeks and are so glad to be expecting again!

Our due date is May 5th, and we already have a 3-yo dd who is thrilled about the new baby :-)

I'm here!

I'm due 5/9. Nervous about joining so soon, but I'm not going to hold back in rejoicing in this pregnancy. It goes so quickly!

Congratulations to all the other May mommies!

yipee and congrats!!

to cuckoomama and slightly crunchy!! glad to be not so alone anymore!!

good news is that i talked to my midwife and the whole root canal thing sounds like it is going to be ok. had to argue with the dentist that no i could not consult with my dr/gp as she did not even know i was pg and wouldnt unless i needed to see her for something else! it was kinda funny but terse if ya know what i mean.

bad news is i felt barfy today really kinda for the first time. which is good i mean if you had a miscarriage before like me MS makes you feel better in a way. nothing seem appealing when it comes to food except crap like cookies, tea biscuits and cups of tea. shoot, i just realised i brewed myself some raspeberry leaf tea about an hr and a half ago and left it downstairs! i am addicted to the cd'ing brd and the trading post. buying cute, cute, cute little diapers in NB size. i dont even want to think about how much money i spent. keep tellin myself i can resell em!

how's everyone else feelin?

CuckooMamma, I'm due May 5 too! Cool!

I am still waiting for any symptoms besides sore boobies. Anyone else like that or do you already have symptoms? I am hoping that I don't have anything to worry about (I take a hpt test every morning and it's still positive, so that relieves me a bit!).

nope, i have a bit of nausea if i dont eat enuf. that's it. with my dtr i dont think i got real MS until about 6-7 weeks in. when i miscarried i felt really sick immediately. i mean by 4 weeks! so i dunno if it really tells anything. i get tired too by the afternoon.

From my own experience, nausea didn't mean didley about mc'ing either. I had extreme nausea during the last pregnancy. At 12 weeks they found the heart wasn't beating. I didn't miscarry until 14 weeks and felt nauseated almost up until the day we mc'd. So, I also wouldn't worry too much if you weren't feeling nauseated.

I threw up last week and have had a couple of vicious migraines. Unfortunately, I spotted a tiny bit today and am now wondering if this is a bad sign. I broke out all the preggo books that say bleeding may mean nothing, but you know how it goes...you always think the worst.

Sending you all happy and healthy baby vibes!

ya know, i spotted and bled quite a bit with baby loo but in my gutt i just never felt like i was gonna miscarry. it just felt right and part of it was ignorance. the second time when i miscarried, as soon as i saw the first spot, i knew it was all over. first time i had a shoot forget what it is called but a small tear in the placenta. evntually it healed up and everything was fine. i am crossing my fingers for no spotting this time. i have done accupuncture and i am picking up some chinese herbs tomorrow so i wil have done everything i can to keep my uterus "calm" and happy.

had my first midwife visit today and it was lovely. i have a different midwife but she was my back up last time so i know her fairly well and she is upbeat and knows lots! we have another appointment in 2 weeks to start the peeing on sticks and talking about tests. last time i refused all testing and will go the same route again. i am going to be 39 when this babe is born. how bout everyone else? what age will you be?

So glad to hear that your midwife appt. went well. I'm thinking of scheduling one myself this week. I had been holding off as they usually don't want to see you before 8 weeks at their practice, but I'm hoping they can tell me all is okay. No more spotting now, but I have this feeling of dread. But heck, last pregnancy I thought everything was completely fine with the baby up until I looked at the u/s monitor. I'm just not sure what to think. Hearing your story of spotting and still having a healthy baby is encouraging. I did another home test this afternoon and it was a strong positive. I guess I'm just so worried after last time.

So there are three of us so far, right? And all due on the 5th? This could be a lot of fun!

Hey ladies!! Congrats to everyone

Can I join in here too?

I'm due on May 2nd with baby#2. We will probobally have a homebirth. I met with one midwife yesterday. I really liked her and while I had a good birth with Nick once I got to the birth center the hospital burecarcy was so hard to deal with that we want to avoid it this time.

hoping that i get a +
i had a m/c a month ago...so i dont even know if its a possiblilty, but i had all the signs of ovulation. today i am 13 dpo. i really want to test before i go camping this w/e....but part of me just says relax. i suppose that if i dont test and come back with no af i'll know. we dont plan on telling any irl ppl until at least 2 mo...maybe 3, when it happens.
