Hi, Elizabeth!!!  I have a little one whose birthday is February 13.  She is actually not so little... it's my oldest, so she'll be 17 on her next birthday.  She has always gotten a kick out of her birthday, because every few years, it lands on "Friday the 13th!"  Congratulations, by the way!

Amy- welcome!  I have PCOS also, and this baby was a "well, I got my period for 4 months in a row, we will TTC until they go away again" and I got pregnant the 4th? month.

 

I was born the day after my dad's birthday.  My first kid was born the same month as me, but like three weeks later than my bday :p.  Hubby's birthday is in March, and i don't really want to wait that long :lol

Pcos sucks doesn't it? I got off the pill and convinced that it may take months to conceive started taking chasteberry/vitex supplements, got my period within a couple weeks and bam! got pregnant the next month. We were very surprised. I hadn't even finished losing all the weight I had hoped to lose. Oh well, babies have their own plans!

That is great that it only took you 4 months. What a relief, right?

Thanks for welcome!

With great sadness I'm leaving the Feb 2012 DDC.  We just discovered a missed miscarriage.  Apparently we lost our little girl around 15 weeks. 

 

Good luck to you all!  Wishing you all the best!

Well, they changed my due date to February 14.  I haven't stopped thinking of it as being the 4th, though.  LOL... I believe there is absolutely only one time this could have happened, and that was May 14, meaning 2/4 is the EDD.  Two consecutive ultrasounds both showed me as 10 days behind that, though, so they are simply adamant.  My very first baby was due on the 14th, and I conceived her on Memorial Day weekend.  I think this little one is just kinda small, although you can't tell doctors anything. 

 

And, HOLY MOLY.  I was looking through the list on the first page, and um, am I REALLY the only mama having my 7th??  When I had my 6th, there were at least two mamas in my DDC who were on their 7th, with one more on her 8th.  Here, I didn't even see an "expecting #6" and no one who's having #7.  Wow... then again, I sure never thought I'd be in a DDC again either, after the last time.  Just goes to show, I guess!

Hi everyone- just wanted to post an update as I've been MIA.  We lost the baby at 18 weeks- beginning of Sept.  But on a very positive note, after getting the green light to try again last month, I got a BFP yesterday. joy.gifSo, I will be joining the July 2012 club.  Just wanted to thank everyone here for being so wonderful & supportive even tho I was only here for a bit.  All the best for your Feb babies!
