Oh Kelly, I'm so sorry to hear! *hugs*

I know it's your choice, but it may be better for healing and later conception (because D&C will leave scar tissue) if you let things go on their own? I can understand wanting it done and over with, though. I hope I don't sound pushy. Did they do an internal ultrasound instead of just your abdomen?

Yes, after thinking about it, I will probably opt to just wait to miscarry.  I just want it to be over and done with now that I know, but I think letting things proceed naturally is probably better for me.

 

She started with the abdomen, but then when she couldn't see anything, tried the transvaginal.  She pointed out the yolk sac and asked me a few times if I was SURE about the date of my last period.  We've been trying to have a baby for almost 3 years, so I track everything.  I know the exact date of conception, so there's no mistake.

So sorry, Kelly. Will be thinking of you and all the other mamas with losses. I hope you get another BFP very soon.  :Hug

Name you want to be called: PrimalMom,  Primal Mama, or J


Area of location you live: mostly in NYC, but I own a place in Boston that we visit often, and I'll probably give birth there

 

How many children you have already, if any: no living kids - had a full-term still birth a few years ago, so second pregnancy, but no toddler demanding our attention


Estimated expectancy date: June 7, 2014


Hobbies: music, hiking, being active, food
 

Anything else you like to share: honestly not sure how much I'll participate - I've been burned by the internet before - badly, so I'm hesitant to really get back on the horse, but I did find the camaraderie of a due date club to be wonderful, so I'm giving it a try :)

I'm so sorry Kelly.  :(

I went through and updated the list.  I sorted them by due dates.  There are a few at the bottom that I didn't have much info on so if those people want to post updates, I can update.

When/if you each plan to find out gender, or want to go team green, post that too so I can update with that as well.

Thank you!

First, Kelly and all the other losses I'm so sorry. Hope you will find peace in whatever form it can be presented to you at this to time.

I'm due on June 14- from my Lmp. We are unsure about getting any u/s but maybe one at 20 weeks. My first appointment with my midwife isnt until 14 weeks, so that's my best guess for due date,although secretly I hope it happens on the winter solstice.

We won't be finding out the sex either.

Hello, everyone!

 It's hard to believe I am even joining a DDC again, but here I am! I have a son who is 8 months old (tomorrow!) and I am 11 weeks 1 day pregnant! We are guessing a due date around June 8th. This is my 4th pregnancy, with my first two ending in m/c. I'm just stunned that I'm even here, lol. We were thinking that we would like our kiddos to be close together, but now that it's really happening I think I'm a little overwhelmed. If this baby goes full term they will be about 14 months apart. We won't find out gender, but will probably have an anatomy scan at 20 weeks just to take a peek at everything else! :) And...I forgot what else I was supposed to say. Congrats to all of you, and I look forward to learning more about this awesome pregnancy journey with you! :)

Name you want to be called:  Michelle (unless there are a lot here in which case I'll pick another)
Area of location you live: San Diego, CA
How many children you have already, if any: This will be the first.
Estimated expectancy date: June 12, 2014 (but I prefer to say second week in June)
Hobbies: Right now?  Just feeling better.  I used to enjoy yoga and dancing and DIY projects until a couple months ago . . . .
Anything else you like to share: I don't have any girlfriends (except on Facebook) who are pregnant or have kids and my local single girlfriends moved away.  What a time for it! Hoping to ask the questions here that no one else seems to "get".

I've been participating in threads for awhile now, but I realized I never officially introduced myself. We live in NM for most of the year and in Peru during the winters. My EDD is June 21st and this will be our second child (DS is 3), although it's my 5th pregnancy. I'm planning on another home birth- possibly a water birth this time. My hobbies are painting, jewelry making, yoga, traveling, hiking, and playing with my little one. Sorry if this is a little jumbled- writing from my phone and couldn't figure out how to copy the intro format.

~may all beings be free from suffering~

Hi everyone I am Colleen and I live in NH.
I have a 4 year old daughter and this little bean is Due on June 3rd. 
I love to run, spend time with my daughter, do crafts and things with her, explore new places, and spend time with the family. 
I am hoping to do a lot more natural things with this baby like cloth diapering, breastfeeding etc, that I did not get to do with my daughter.

Anything else: my sons were born at home, and this baby will be born in the hospital. I'm trying really hard to make peace with the idea of another hospital birth. It's a challenge.
