Hi, I'm the first one here. I'll talk more when someone else chimes in! This is #3 and a surprise.

Hi

Congratulations, Rosemary!

Hi! I'm Jennifer and I just found out last week we're expecting our first child! We've been trying to get pregnant for a while so it feels so surreal that this is really happening.

Hi Rosemary and Jennifer! This is our first pregnancy under the care of a reproductive endocrinologist so we are cautiously optimistic.

I just had a blood clotting disorder diagnosed in late May- it's a genetic issue associated with inability to absorb foliate. Dr recommended NOT TTC in June so that my body could come back into balance after taking special vitamins and aspirin. So this was kind of an oops baby-- we "prevented" if you can call avoiding ovulation preventing, but as you can imagine, after 3 years we were pretty doubtful anything would happen.

Apparently the special vitamins and aspirin really worked. Now I am taking these special vitamins (super doses of folic acid, B12 and B6 with probiotics), low dose aspirin, 1x day Lovenox injections and 2x a day progesterone.

Definitely the most intervention I've ever needed to stay healthy but so far it is working. Going in for an U/S on Monday to see what's there, and if it's in the right place. I've had countless chemical pregnancies and one that went to 8 weeks a few years ago so we are cautiously optimistic.

I'm also happy that this disorder was diagnosed because I started feeling a million times better after taking the vitamins and aspirin. I am actually looking forward to life after pregnancy because I felt so much better. For now, I am dealing with constant low-level nausea and a super-sniffer which makes trips into public and time around our stinky elderly dog quite the trial.

Hi everyone!

Viddy- wow, what a journey! I love hearing stories like yours!


My name is Jessica. This is my 5th baby. I have four sons, ages 8, 7, 2.5, and 14 months. I also have a stepdaughter that is with us on the summers. I had a really hormonal cycle last month and thought I was pregnant, but I had a negative test and started my period about 5 minutes later. It did serve to show me that I DO want another. Then this month, I had no symptoms but realized I was late. Took a test and there it was. It's the first time I've been completely shocked by a positive pregnancy test.

I am a photographer by trade, though I'm actually stepping away from the portraiture side a bit and just focusing on birth. Yes, I love birth so much that I am about to do it for the 5th time and have made a career out of it! here is my website:www.jessicasowardsphotography.com and by Facebook www.facebook.com/jessicasowardsphotography if you are a photo or baby junkie like me
I am also a writer. I run a blog that gets decent traffic (www.thehodgepodgedarling.blogspot.com) and I'm actually trying to grow it. This baby means I will probably cut back to ONLY birth clients (and their maternity and newborn photos) so that I can be home more. I also write for a small magazine here in Arkansas called Do South.

I am an aspiring homesteader. I have wanted a small farm for my entire life and we just moved into a house with 4.5 acres in April. So far, its been a ton of work just getting the place cleaned up and organized, but I have high hopes for a large garden and chicken house next year and goats, a dairy cow, pigs and bees in the following years.

We are Christians. My husband is doing an internship to be a pastor. My ministry is my home and children, but I also speak to women.

Hmmmm. What else…. I love to cook. I'm an essential oil junkie. I like real food. I read when I have time (just about the start Diana Gabaldon's new book).
This is a pretty thorough introduction, no?

How exciting the group is up and running!!!
I am Amy Bailey. This is baby number 3 for us. I have pcos and have a hard time becoming pregnant in the past... we were going to start to watch my cycles and start to try thinking it would take a year or two... then i got sad before a neg test and no period.. i thought something was wrong with my hormones again.. nope i was pregnant!! Im shocked still and this was earlier than we thought.
Some big choices i have had to make.. i am in canada so i have to go back to work for about 600hrs or 4 hours so i can get a full year mat leave pay. I didnt want to but have to at this point. I do have two other kids at home. My daughter zuri 4 1/2 and son asher 18months.

All is going great so far and i can really relate to the last poster. We do whole and raw foods in our house. Raw milk. I can my own foods. We hunt our own meat.. and so on. I had a vbac with my last and plan to do an unassisted with this baby.

I've been waiting for this group to show up! I'm Amber, mama to five and excited to finish our family with this baby. I have a 4 boys, 17, 11, 7, and 14 months and one sweet girl who is 9.
I love all things birth and baby and sometimes think about training under my midwife, but I don't think our lifestyle would ever allow me to be committed enough.
We own a big game hunting camp, so from mid august to mid November I spend almost all if my time in the mountains. We homeschool and try to live as naturally as possible.
I'm really excited for this pregnancy and also pretty cautious as I lost four pregnancies before getting my last baby here. Praying I don't have to experience that again and this will produce a healthy, happy baby.
Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Nice to "meet" you all! As for personal stuff, we are respite foster parents. We are going to continue fostering through pregnancy as long as the stress level stays low. We love biking and I just got really into mountain biking before the Dr said "no mountain biking!". So now I am walking the trails while DH rides his 29er. Taking one for the team. We have a CSA share and a lovely container garden this year (fairly small yard).

Hi everyone!

So glad to find this group. This will be pregnancy number 5 for me. I have 3 healthy children ages 2, 4 & 6 and one precious baby I am waiting to meet. My last pregnancy was almost exactly 1 year ago and at 8 weeks we found out it was a blighted ovum. I am very nervous of interventions and opted to wait it out as opposed to having a D&C. Thankfully at 16 weeks I misscarried on my own at home. I am very excited about this pregnancy and am praying that I will get to hold this little one sometime in March! Hope to learn more about you all on this journey

Wow, so glad to meet you all. I love the mix of family size and experience. And I'm really hoping that this is sticky for you, Viddy.
As for me, I'm a visual artist, and I am not plugging myself, but if you're interested, www.rosemaryscottfishburn.com is my website. I make photographic objects that thus far explore the psychological side of childhood experience.
My kids are 6 (boy) and 2y8m (girl) and I'm married to my husband of 13 years. We live in MA in our home of 11 years although we spent a couple of years working in Italy for a college art program in there.
I really do look forward to keeping in contact here. I have to keep reminding myself that this is happening and that I am in yet another DDC! Whoa.

Rosemary, your work is beautiful! I always leave links to "what I do" in introductions because I feel like it's a very good way to get to know a person, to see that which they pour their heart into. Thank you for sharing!

Best wishes for a happy and healthy pregnancy! Do you consider this to be the same baby, just ready to come back and try again? We are thinking of it that way. The one pregnancy I had that made it past 4 weeks was a source of joy and we gave the embryo a temporary name (Chip) and talked to it, etc. We are thinking of this baby as the same one, ready to come back now that I am on blood thinners and it has the opportunity to thrive...

Does Gloucester have the same gorgeous light as Cape Cod? The light on the Cape is magic...

Gloucester's light is also wonderful. We're the "other" cape--Cape Ann.

Today I am having some brownish staining. This has happened increasingly, it's not much but noticeable. Some mild cramping. I'm wondering what's up. I've had a missed miscarriage in the past marked by loss of symptoms and brown staining. It's the weekend so unless something major happens I will hold off calling the MW. Sorry to bum out the thread.

I'm a little scared to get settled into a DDC... My first beta was only 49 on Thursday at 3w5d.

This is my 3rd pregnancy, but the first was a missed mc. I had low hcg then too. That pregnancy too 1.5yrs to conceive. I have a 4 year old DS. He took 3yrs to conceive. I thought my DH would never want to try for a second child, but he sudden;y changed his mind. To my surprise, I go my birthday wish of a bfp on the second cycle! But, now I'm faced with all my mc fears looming over me. I'm supposed to do a repeat beta on Monday (my birthday), but I wonder if I should just make it even later for a better chance at bigger numbers/doubling rates?

Rosemary - Keeping you in my thoughts!

Thanks, Stephanie. You've had quite a road. I had a missed miscarriage my first pregnancy, too. It's so threatening, isn't it? The idea of it is so sinister to me. I will keep you in my thoughts as well.

What a journey you have had! (Hugs) Loses are so hard no matter how far along and i know we all have our own ways of dealing with it and trying to make sense of the "why" of it all .

Personally I believe that this new baby is a completely different one from the one we lost. I truly believe that I will get that baby that we lost one day. I am a Chriatian so I believe that that little life is back with God waiting to be given back to me when Jesus comes again. I don't mean to sound preachy at all ... I didn't know how else to answer your question though.

On a different note are you planning on getting an early ultrasound at all? I don't know what to do about that. I would prefer to limit the amount of ultrasounds etc... but at the same time if I don't get one I will always be wondering if all is well . Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Hi Moms! My name is Margie Sanders. Im 30y.o. mother of two (Gabe 4 and Avalon 2) and of course one more on the way. I too am a little nervous with this pregnancy. I was recently diagnosed with hypo thyroidism after losing a baby in May due to high levels of TSH. I had lots of blood work done throughout that 8-10 week pregnancy bc my hcg levels were just so low. The whole time they never got higher that 900. This time I'm about 4 weeks along and my hcg level was at 6200 just 2 days ago so I'm feeling a optimistic but still nervous. We're also in the middle of moving. Our house is sold and we have to be out by 7/31 but so far we haven't found our new home. It's a little stressful not knowing where we're going and being forced to move on top of being pregnant but I'm trusting God that his timing is perfect and that he'll show us the way.

Thinking of you and hoping you are doing well...

I've gone to Cape Cod most of the summers of my life. We live in a kind of gross dirty rustbelt city with bad air and I am craving the clean air, wind and sea grass so badly. We'll be going for a week this summer. I wish I could wait out the next six weeks there .

Hi! I am writing from Germany. I am 31. I took the test on Friday morning. I am 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant according to FF. It is my first pregnancy and I am happy but cautious. I will try to see my General Practisioner tomorrow. I have an appointment with a Gyn in a week. I tested a week ago and after 3 negatives on a row I decided it wasn´t going to be it on this cycle and was very surprised when I saw BFP last friday. My DH was even more surprised.

Hello!

Congratulations to all of you; I've enjoyed reading your introductions.

My name is Christie, and obviously, it's very early on. I'm feeling pretty cautious, despite all of the signs being there (especially insane cramping and bloating...yay). Also, I took an at home test, and it did indeed let me know it's a "yes."

This will be my second, and my husband and I are really excited to grow our family. We have a little boy, almost three, who's just the sweetest thing in the world. I can't wait to see him as a big brother!

Looking forward to making connections. Take care!

Be well,
Christie

Hello Everyone!

It's so exciting to be joining this group. I'm 32, and this is my first pregnancy so I'm not sure what to expect and could certainly use any guidance! I've moved to a new area and right now I feel a bit desperate to find a doctor. In general my husband and I are really looking forward to this experience. I hope everyone has a great week.

Hi All!! Happy to be joining this group, though it is a bit of a surprise! We were still kind of on the fence about having another. So, we weren't really trying, but not really preventing either (unless you call the old fashion pull out method preventing This will be #3 for us. We have 2 awesome little boys (Maximus-3.5 yrs and Bayde-17 months) who are full energy and ensure that there is never a dull moment in our home!

Just a little bit about myself. My name is Jennifer and I am 36 yrs old. DH and I have been together since our sophomore year is HS and will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary this August. I am a 2nd grade teacher here in Southern CA. I look forward to getting to know every one and sharing this experience with all of you! Here is to a happy and healthy 9 months!!!

Hey, just in case some people are confused, I've changed my user name with Cynthia Moser to be a little bit less "my name" (I've been a member since 2008 and this community was my first online community and I didn't know that I should maybe keep myself more private!) So anyway, it's still me, but with a shiny new name.

Hi! Just introducing myself - I am just barely 4 weeks with #3 . I have two kids - DS will be 12 and DD will be 9 when this one is born. I had a loss a little over a year ago and we had decided not to try again, then changed our minds and got pregnant right away and I'm a little shocked. I had 2 losses in between the 2 kids so I'm trying to be hopeful. I am feeling more symptoms this time already and I'm trying to get an early u/s. All three m/c happened before I saw or heard a heartbeat so I really want to see that! I live in New England and I'm a high school teacher. I'm also a big knitter and cloth diaper maker and I'm starting a pair of longies just to have something to occupy me even though it's really early

I love learning so much about all of you ladies! I'm so excitied for this journey.

Here's some more information on me:

My husband and I are high school sweethearts and will be married for three years on November 11th. I'm 28 years old and this is my first pregnancy. I teach 5th grade and my husband teaches high school PE/Health and Driver's Ed. He also coaches football and wrestling.

We've been hoping for this little bundle of joy for quite some time! We stopping using Birth Control in March 2013. I had been on the BC pill for 9 years and this past year has been quite a roller coaster as I've been waiting for a "normal" cycle so we could actually try around my fertile window. I've tried eating healthier, exercising, having acupuncture treatments, tracking basal body temperature, going to a fertility specialist for testing (everything was normal for DH and I), taking herbal supplements, drinking herbal teas, limiting caffeine and alcohol, praying, and I even asked to switch my job to try and de-stress (I was a classroom teacher for 5 years, and last year I moved to the District Level in the Curriculum Department. The job was quite overwhelming and stressful so I asked to transfer back to a classroom. I truly LOVE teaching and working with the kids and am thrilled to be back at it in the fall!)

I look forward to learning more about all of you as we support each other during our pregnancies. Best of luck and wishes to all of us for healthy and strong March babies!

Another teacher! I knew curriculum dev would be harder than actually being in the classroom - thanks for confirming it! Congrats on your pregnancy. I was 28 when my first was born. It was just right for us too. Old enough to know better, young enough to still have lots of time to have more kids if we wanted.

Hi Everyone!

Excited to join a DDC! I tested positive this morning and took another test this afternoon just to be sure. I haven't even told my husband yet! Planning to tell him tonight. Should be due around March 20th-ish.

I'm quietly excited. This will be our first child.

Best wishes,
C.
