* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 7 months
* What number child is this for you: First
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): My husband, one cat, one dog

* Anything else you'd like to share: I have been waiting so long and am so glad it finally happened!  It's a little hard to take in right now.  I got my positive on Christmas while staying with my family, and it was really hard not to tell my mom right away.  Also, I had just broken down and ordered some cloth diapers--what good timing!

* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Our first cycle of actively trying! 11DPO
* What number child is this for you: Number 2!!!
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Hubby Anson, Asher (3.5) and Cricket our cat...oh yeah our 3 chickens...Betsy, Buttercup and Brownie. :)
* Birth plans/preferences: going for a VBAC. 
* Anything else you'd like to share: Since I'm going for a VBAC, my HB midwives won't touch me with a 10ft pole (even though they got me into this mess to begin with...BAD traumatic topic :(). :( BUT the practice I'm going to is the only VBAC friendly OB/Midwife practice in town.  I have a good feeling about all of this but I will say I'm FREAKING out ...i hate knowing this early....it worries me.


Lauren, Mama to Asher 3.5 and a new bean due in Sept. 2011.

Wow.  I'm still in shock!

 

* Name: (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know): Angela
* EDD: Conception = 9/3/11 (LMP = 8/28/11, but I go long so I'm sticking with September)

* Age: 37
* Location: Missouri
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: I just had my first PPAD!  We weren't trying *or* avoiding.
* What number child is this for you: 3
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): My Old Man, daughter = 4.75, son = 11 months
* Birth plans/preferences: I do it all natural so this will be the same.  Daughter came out less than 12 hours from first contraction, Son less than 3 hours.  I guess I need to prepare to have this one at home!
* Anything else you'd like to share: I'm still nursing the baby around the clock and don't want to lose my milk for him.  Oh, and I've *always* wanted to tandem nurse!

* Age: 31

* Location: SoCal
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 17 cycles - basically a year and a half!  So as you can imagine, we are thrilled!!

* What number child is this for you: 2
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH (we've been married 7.5 years), DD 3.5 (almost born on the side of the road, made it to the hospital for pushing!)
* Birth plans/preferences: Have contacted midwives, hoping for a homebirth this time with DD as involved as she chooses to be!

* How I told DH: I gave up testing early many cycles ago, but on Christmas morning I was a day late and my CF was different than normal pre-AF.  Plus I wanted to share a bottle of wine with my sister that evening if I wasn't pregnant AGAIN :)  We were staying at her house over the holidays, so she snuck me to the drugstore for a test, and when I took it, the BFP came up within seconds!  As soon as I could, I pulled DH into an empty room to tell him I had another present for him - as soon as he saw the stick and realized what was probably on it, we both started crying.  A special, special memory...
* Anything else you'd like to share: I was so bummed initially that getting pregnant took so much longer than I expected.  Now I'm just grateful, so grateful, and kind of excited that I've forgotten so much of what I learned the first time - it all feels fresh, new and exciting for me and DH :)

* Name: Shelly

* EDD: Sept 6, 2011

* Age: 32
* Location: Canada
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 5 months
* What number child is this for you: 2
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH - married for over 8 1/2 years, DS - 2 1/2
* Birth plans/preferences: Same midwife that I had with my son, hoping for a successful VBAC after my stubborn little breech baby
* Anything else you'd like to share: We're going to be moving in a few months so thinking I wouldn't need them I packed up all my mat clothes and put them in storage, joking that it would be a "reverse jinx".  Christmas Eve day we were leaving for the week to be with family, I wasn't late and had no symptoms but I didn't want to have to test at a house full of family that I had no intentions of telling right away.  Sure enough we got a Christmas present, I quickly cleaned the test and wrapped it up as a present and gave it to my husband telling him Santa came early.  We were both shocked, especially since the only symptoms I had were of typical period cramping at the right time, and now I need those mat clothes back!

* Name: (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know) Laura
* EDD:  Sept 7

* Age: 24
* Location: central Alabama
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: we started trying in Oct '09. My son Jack was stillborn at 36 weeks in August '10. Miscarriage at 5 weeks in November '10. So I really don't know how to answer that one. I get a lot of BFPs. Just no live, healthy babies. Here's hoping!
* What number child is this for you: this will be my 3rd child, hopefully my 2nd living
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH, Ray, 39; DS, Henry, 4 in January
* Birth plans/preferences: I am a UP/UCer, but I may go the medical prenatal route this time around, I really don't know yet. I will NOT be birthing in a hospital unless its life or death, though. I'll just have an "oops" at home. I am such a fast birther, that won't be hard to believe.
* Anything else you'd like to share: I vow to try my hardest not to bring negativity to this DDC. For obvious reasons, I am not the most optimistic person here right now, but I am working on improving my attitude one day at a time. I want this baby desperately, I am longing to have a live and healthy baby in my arms. Its just so hard for me to believe that for me, pregnancy = baby. It just hasn't worked out that way the majority of the time, but I'm hoping to even up my score this time. I really, really want this to stick.

Hey mamas! I am excited to join this group!

 

I am due on the 8th. This is my third child. We tried for 6 cycles.

 

I plan to HBA2C. We'll see though -- me and birth have a complicated history. lol.gif

Hello. I'm new to the forums. I'm C and I'm 5 weeks pregnant with my 3rd. I have a 6yo and a 3 yo. It was an unplanned unexpected pregnancy, but I'm taking it as a blessing despite the hardships. Looking for support being that I'm a single mom even though xdh knows and is supportive of pregnancy. He is still good father to kids despite our seperation. I'm due Sept 3.

I'm definitely in this club.  lol.gif

 

* Name: Cathy
* EDD: Sept. 16th

* Age: 34
* Location: Pleasant Garden, NC
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: It was an Oooops...  We were supposed to wait until February.
* What number child is this for you: 5th pregnancy, 2nd child
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH Dave married since April 10th, 2010, James 4 almost 5, 2 dogs, 1 cockatiel, 11 chickens, and 2 goats (soon to be 4 or 5, our doe just started bagging up and should be kidding in the next week. smile.gif)
* Birth plans/preferences: Homebirth like with my DS.  Really excited to finally be contacting and meeting the midwife here that I've been talking to right before my miscarriage in June.
* Anything else you'd like to share: Well, I had two miscarriages last year.  The last one probably because my blood sugar was so high and I didn't know I had diabetes until my check up after my miscarriage or could have been a blood disease that clotted the blood in the umbilical cord.  So, after my BFP tomorrow I'm going to make an appt. and get this test done, because I will need to take a baby aspirin every day or every other day if that is the case. 1st miscarriage last year was in January and I totaled my truck and was lucky that is the only thing that happened.  I'm just glad me and the dogs walked away from it.
