Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old?
Nope. This will be our first.


Are you partnered or single?
Married since Oct '05, together since '99


How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?
Got pregnant in our 5th cycle of trying


How far along are you?
About 5 weeks, though my cycle varies from 28-41 days, and I'm not sure when I O'd. DH swears I got pregnant on our vacation at the end of August, but I think it was earlier than that. The night of the lunar eclipse I woke up with a little nausea and weird feeling at 3:30AM, just in time to go out and see it. I think I was pregnant then.

When did you find out?
Found out last Thursday.


How are you feeling?
Feeling pretty normal (and trying not to stress that it means I'm not really pg!)

Oh, I love these!

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old?
Yes, one little girl, just turned 4. She just weaned 10 days ago with some very gentle encouragement from mum!

Are you partnered or single?
One crazy yugoslav partner in the kitchen cooking liver

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?
9 months, age 39 with apparently low progesterone and thyroid antibodies and breastfeeding.

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
Around 6 weeks now but I had a whacky last cycle so due date quite unclear. Found out 4 September. Feeling great!

About 5 1/2 weeks along. We found out a week ago last Thursday when my period did not arrive and I was feeling a little funny.

I'm feeling OK right now. A little nausea, not bad yet. I get out of breath very easily and I am just starting to feel my typical extreme pregnancy fatigue. Blech.

I am tandem nursing my two littlest. I have nursed one or two all the way through every pregnancy but my first one.

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? I have two other kids; a boy who'll be 5 in October, and a girl who turned 2 in July.

Are you partnered or single? Married for 10 years in December.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? This was actually the first baby we got to plan, the other two were the surprises. It was our first month TTC.

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? I'm 5 weeks today. I found out last Tuesday, at 16 dpo. I'm feeling really good. A little tired, and a bit of nausea here and there, but overall I'm feeling wonderful. I LOVE being pregnant.

I have a 3.5 year old dd. I'm still nursing - anyone else? I'm still nursing my 2 year old, but only at night to fall asleep and occasionally when she's upset or something. I tend to expect that she'll wean before the new baby comes, but if she doesn't, I'll give tandem nursing a go.

2 girls, 5 yo & 2 yo

Are you partnered or single?
married for 7 years

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?
basically a surprise...we had an oops 2 months ago, didn't get pg; last month we TTC'd, didn't get pg & while in the 2ww decided to postpone TTC indefinitely due to things going on (trying to sell our house & move, I want[ed] to go back to work); weren't trying this month but had an oops again, this one "took"

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
I'm 4 weeks along...with the previous 2, I could have told you weeks & days, I guess the 3rd time around, I'm just too tired...still getting used to the idea, too. I got faint BFPs on Thursday (FMU) & Friday (midday) & a good BFP Saturday morning. I "knew" I was pg about as soon as I conceived (intuition). Last Monday or Tuesday, I woke up feeling nauseous & I was super tired all last week (still am). I have waves of nausea but most of the time I feel fine (knock on wood).

I have a 3.5 year old dd. I'm still nursing - anyone else?
I'm still nursing my 2yo (27 months). She will nurse all day & all night if I let her (out of boredom). Today she didn't nurse at all during the day because we stayed busy. I was not as engorged as I expected to be (we occasionally have days like this & usually I'm in pain by the end of the day). I wonder if I'm going to lose my milk.

We have a 4.5 yr old DD and a 2 yr. old DS

I'm married for 5 yrs. in October

We were trying to avoid pregnancy actually. But a couple wild nights close together and a little too much mine and voila! We're excited though. .. mostly.


I'm 4 week 5 days now. I found out officially yesterday 9/15. however, we both knew I was pregnant (lol we chuckled that I was infected with the husband seed).

I'm feeling totally pregnant already. I have all the classic symptoms. Except that I'm not actually throwing up (keeping fingers crossed that it doesn't happen) I'm extrememly exhausted. I am feeling this much more so than the last pregs. Yikes!

Do you have other kiddos? Yep, one son who is 10 months old today! Time to start planning the bday party...

Are you partnered or single? Blissfully married for 2.5 years

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? Technically only trying for 1 month. Same as with DS

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?

I am 3w3d, I had a very faint + on 7DPO which got darker by 10DPO And I am feeling great! I also LOVE being pregnant and we're quite excited about doing it all over again! I'm quite gassy and a little tired (I actually had a nap yesterday, that's rare!) but doing fine.

I fully intended to nurse DS for at least 12 months but I really don't know what happened. He just kind of phased out a few weeks ago and hasn't looked back. He was BIG on boobs too so I expected it to be more dramatic. He was sick for a week so I think that may have triggered things.

Naomi is 1

Are you partnered or single? Married for 2.5 years

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? TTC for 3 months, 3-4 months of "just seeing what happens" prior to that

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
I am either 4w2d or 4w even. I found out at 12 DPO, which was Saturday. I am feeling a little too good! Bring on the morning sickness!

Do you have other kiddos? Allie 6 / Truth 2 / Zoe 6 months

Are you partnered or single? married

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? a welcome suprise

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?

I am 6 weeks and found out one week ago! I feel great but I can smell everything!
post #50 of 75
Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? Yes, one DS. He is 17 mo.

Are you partnered or single? married.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? We conceived this bean on our first cycle TTC. Very lucky.

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? I am about 6 weeks. I found out a week and a half ago. I'm feeling OK - not as exhausted as with DS, but I have nausea and some food aversions. Unfortunately, with most of my aversions I do not know that they're aversions until I start eating them ... which then causes me to dry heave and or run to throw up. Nice!

I've lost some weight with this pregnancy.


I have a 3.5 year old dd. I'm still nursing - anyone else? I'm single. I got lucky on the first month ttc. Still nursing, but am not sure how long we'll go. I'm committed to making it to 18 months, but am just not sure after that.

How about you?

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old?
I have two boys, 8 and 5.

Are you partnered or single?
i am a partnered, recently "officially" divorced mother

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?
we have been actively trying for almost a year now. had a loss in december of 06

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
found out last Friday after my extreme sleepiness, late period, headaches and sore boobs gave me a clue. I am probably only about 5 weeks along...i haven't seen the doc yet. I am feeling OK now, symptoms are LOW and the only thing that's intense for me is that my house smells different. Everything smells stronger these days. Other than that, no morning sickness, only the feeling of a queasy stomach from time to time.

Hi May Mamas! So glad to join you. I just got my second bfp today (had to confirm, you know.)

Do you have other kiddos? Yes, dd 2 1/4 (nursing)

Are you partnered or single? married

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? two months -- started trying after cycle in July, just like with dd, got pregnant in September. DD's bday is May 31 (due date with her was June 8). My EDD is May 28.

How far along are you? 3 weeks + a few days

When did you find out? I took an AimStick test with FMU this a.m. Had a faint line. Bough a CVS brand digital (double pack) thinking I'd wait and test again tomorrow to give my hormones a little longer to build. I couldn't wait. Just used the digital and got the beautiful PREGNANT read-out.

How are you feeling? Hungry! A little tired. Excited. When I was nursing dd down for her nap, I did have to ask her to relatch a couple of times. I don't know that it would be sore nipples this early on, though. Just as likely a lazy toddler latch.

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? Yes, two girls, 6 and 2, and a four year old boy.

Are you partnered or single? Married

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? HUGE surprise!

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? Not sure how far along. I have PCOS and my cycles are wacky, some really long, some shorter. I wasn't charting, so I don't know, somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks. I found out Saturday. I feel fabulous, just really tired!
post #54 of 75
Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? Yes, a 4.5yo ds and 2yo DD

Are you partnered or single? Married to dh

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? BIG surprise

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? I am 5 wks, 3 days. Found out last Tuesday at 4 wks, 2d. AF was late and I am quite regular. So to put my (and DH) mind at ease, I tested. I'm feeling pretty good. The fatigue is starting to settle in but that might also be due to the fact both my kids have colds and are up a few times/night. My gums are also sensitive as all get out, brushing my teeth is a bit painful now.

I'm tired and have a few food aversions, but I'm just waiting for the "real" morning sickness to arrive next week (while we're trying to move!).

Hi y'all
:

Other kiddos: 5 yo dd and 1 yo ds

Partnered-yes, married for 8 years

This pregnancy was a surprise. I'm nursing ds and have not had a fppaf.

How far along? That's a good question! I think 7 weeks, based on my guess

How do I feel-one word sums it up amazed! But also followed by yuk, burp, yawn.
post #59 of 75
Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old?
yes. one daughter, 2 and a half.

Are you partnered or single?
married 8 years.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?
Less than 24 hours! I had some issues for the past several months; I got a green light from an OB, dtd that night, ovulated the next day.

How far along are you?
Just over 2 weeks; almost 5 if you count from the start of my last period, which is apparently how everyone else counts--I just remembered that!

When did you find out?
This afternoon, though I knew it almost as soon as it happened. I could just tell something was different.

How are you feeling?
Okay so far, some heartburn starting and have been having dizzy spells (had these with dd, too). Dreading morning sickness, which I had from hell with dd.

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? My daughter Naomi is 18 months.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? Weren't really trying but weren't doing anything to prevent it.

How far along are you? I'm almost 8 weeks.

When did you find out? I knew 2 days before I missed my period. I was sleeping for 10 hours at night.

How are you feeling? Tired and dizzy...
