Ha ha!  I was trying to get everyone from the other thread as quickly as possible.

 

So, me...I am 32.  This is my first.  We've been trying for about a year and a half, and we finally suceeded with IVF.  I am still getting used to be actually being pregnant!  It definitely hasn't sinked in yet. 

 

I look forward to meeting all of you!

 

Edited to add:  I live in the Boston area, and I hope to have a natural/intervention free birth in a hospital or birth center.

Put me down for Aug 12.  Give or take a few days.  I will revise in a few weeks when I go for an ultrasound to get a better range.  Yay!

Thanks Maurine! I see we have the same due date - and congrats on getting pregnant!

 

I already introduced myself in the other thread but for consistency's sake will fill out the little form...

 

* Name: Ursa or ursusarctos
* EDD: 8/2

* Age: 24
* Location: Helsinki, Finland
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Ages! Well, over a year since my last m/c.
* What number child is this for you: 1
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH (together for 5 years, married since October!)
* Birth plans/preferences: Hoping for a homebirth if a) this baby is sticky and pregnancy normal and b) I can manage to scrounge up a midwife in this land of a dozen homebirths a year.
* Anything else you'd like to share: Trying to embrace this pregnancy and not become overly attached to it at the same time. "Hold on tightly, let go lightly," as they say.

Hi all!!

 

Erica

34 years old
Central California

EDD: August 6th
Two months of active trying after a miscarriage at 14wks over the summer
I have one living son and one angel baby. This will hopefully be my second living child
I plan to have this baby at home
I'm still quite scared that this pregnancy won't last.  I'm nervous to be joining a DDC and may not post much out of fear.  But I'll be lurking and will keep up with everyone's stories eagerly.


~Erica~ Married to the love of my life ~ Mama to Nickolas jog.gif6/14/09 and Alexander 8/4/11 and Aiden brokenheart.gifgone too soon at 14 weeks~

Put me down for August 6th, please.  And although I'm not a Boston area mama anymore, I did grow up in Providence.


Sarah, mother to Eloïse (5/2005), Lucas (3/2008) and Ilias (7/2011), and due with #4 (March 1, 2014)

Whoops, I was too eager to post and missed the form:

 

 

* Name: Sarah
* EDD: August 6th, 2011

* Age: I'll be 37 on Tuesday
* Location: Amsterdam, but I'm American
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 3 months
* What number child is this for you: Child #3, pregnancy #4
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH, DD Eloïse (5.5) and DS Lucas (2.5)
* Birth plans/preferences: Home birth, most likely in water
* Anything else you'd like to share: My kids were 6 and 10 days early, respectively, so I suspect that this one will actually come in July.  My last pregnancy was a miscarriage.  The baby died at 8 weeks but I didn't miscarry until 15.  Then that turned out to be incomplete and finally finished itself off 2 months later.  So although we've actually only been trying for 3 cycles, it feels like this baby has been a long time coming.  My miscarried baby was due on December 9th and probably would have been born just a few days after this BFP.

Hey, one more thing.  Can we add which child this baby will be to the first post?  It's nice to be able to find that info easily.

Name: Hila, but call me "myorianna"
EDD: August 8,2011
Age: 35
Location: California
How long to get BFP: 1 year "open", 5 months charting (temp & OPK's)
Child #2
Family- Married to DH for 7 years, 3 year old DD(who is still nursing 2x/day), and a Parrot (featherbaby I guess )
Birth Plans - I had planned a "natural" birth at the hospital with DD but that didn't work out too well.  Ended up with everything but a C-section, and that was close.  This time I really want to make it happen and am looking at a birth center, midwife at a hospital, or homebirth.
What else? We had just had our first appointment at a fertility center, had an ultrasound done and was told I wouldn't be able to get pregnant until I removed a 4cm cyst that was found.  1.5 weeks later I got my BFP!.  Still really nervous about this pregnancy because of that, so we aren't telling anyone until past the first Trimester
