Hi... I am so excited to be joining you!!!

Hello,

I am so so so excited to be here... God has truely answered my prayers!!!

I can hardly believe it's true!!! I have wanted another baby for years and it took a LONG time for my DH to come around to trying for #3! Well, we started and to my surprise, we have a baby due on June 15, 2009!!! :::::::

I haven't told my DH yet... trying to think of something great and creative to do to surprise him!!

Anyways, I had one day where my intuition told me I was pregnant and then nothing... nadda... and I thought, how crazy will I feel when my AF comes. LOL!! Well, I had some crazy bad backaches/cramps and thought surely AF was coming and nothing. I tested yesterday afternoon with a $tree test and actually thought I was seeing things when I saw a faint line!! Nope... it was there because I tested later with and EPT test and had an instant "+". And this morning a beautiful "pregnant" on my digital. :

I look forward to meeting you and rejoining with some of you that I have talked with before!!

Hope you have a HH9M!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome and Congrats!!!

blissful_maia~ I never thought I would be here either! God definitely has worked miracles in my house!!! ::: I have had some pretty sad, low moments when I never believed my DH would come around to ttc #3 that is for sure. I was adamant though that I wanted us to "both" want it and I am glad I waited! I still can hardly believe it until the heartburn that I have been getting the last couple of days kicks in. I also am feeling hungrier than normal, but trying to eat healthy.

I actually have now cut out all soda and drinking only water... not sure how long that will last though because I think the water might be making my heartburn worse.

I went to my doctor today... he likes to see patients early to ensure lab values, etc. are right on track. He is super nice and ordered my Beta test STAT!! I hope to be getting the call really soon!! He also did an US, but said we probably wouldn't see much... but it would help for comparison purposes in a couple of weeks. We saw a definite sac in the uterus (so glad it's not in my tube!!!) and a corpus luteal cyst which he says is good as it's producing the good hormones that I need. :::

I am really excited, so anxious to tell people and trying very hard to keep my mouth shut for right now. Today is my DD's 16th birthday - wow, my oldest youngest will be 16 years apart!!

I had horrible MS with my son and am a bit worried it will start again with this pregnancy... it got really bad around 6 weeks with my son. I am a little scared since I am getting some nasty heartburn already.

Anyways... I look forward to getting to know everyone! I wish us all a very safe and healthy 9 months!!!!

Congratulations and hello! I am also newly pregnant with my 2nd. I'd love to join in. My due date will be June 12. I am very happy and feel very blessed. Now my little monkey will have a sibling to play with!
Anyone still breastfeeding? Man, my nipples are KILLING me. I had bad morning sickness last time around until 4 mos. Too early to tell. This week I am actually feeling much better than last. I am having mild nagging cramps, like gas pains. I remember that from my first in the beginning. And I had 2 da ys of spotting, but that has subsided and nurse said not to worry unless it turned red. Just taking it easy as I can w/ 2 yr. old. Glad again to join in!

LOL, it is also driving me mad not telling anyone yet. Only DH and my sister know...she is 3 mos. along now w/ her 2nd baby herself, and little bump just starting to show. We were @ a wedding this past weekend and a relative commented how our mom was lucky to have "3" grandkids...and I'm busting inside thinking "4!" "4"! Fantesia28, that is cool the 16 yr. age diff between kids. I am oldest of 3 girls and one boy in my family, and my baby bro and I are 14 yrs. apart. It is cool!!! Good luck!

Monk~ Welcome and congratulations!!! :: I just love the joy sign!!

It's really tough to keep a secret that is for sure! I am dying to tell my kids and my mom. I have actually told a couple of people at work and you guys, but holding off on telling anyone else for now. I think as soon as I hear a heartbeat, I may do a halloween card or something with a picture of the US... I just don't know if I can keep it a secret much longer. LOL!!

I had my beta's done yesterday and at 15 dpo, they were 198!!! YIPPEE!!! They are great according to my doctor! He will see me weekly until we get a heart beat! I can't wait as it will ease some of my anxiety.
