Well, there aren't any posts in this forum yet, and I don't know if I'm allowed to be the first one, but...

I tested today (8 dpo ) and I got a fast, dark, BFP!

TCOYF gave me a due date of March 4th, so here I am! Hope this board gets going soon!

Ditto. I just have a feeling. We were not ttc but we have found that we are VERY fertile and like I said, I have a feeling....

How soon is it realistic to test? I don't want to waste money trying to test too early, but I am anxious to know...

Mamamillie, with my first baby I tested 5 days before I expected my period, and this time I tested a whole week early. I used the First Response Early tests, and I got definite positives both times. This time the line was so dark so fast that it kind of startled me! :LOL If I were testing casually, I would probably wait until no more than a couple of days before you are expecting your period. But, as you can see from my experience, it is definitely possible to get an answer sooner if you're dying to know!

Hi everybody!

We just found out today and I can't stop smiling about it.....

Our due date is March 3rd. Sounds like we might have a busy first week of March!

Hi! I found out yesterday that I'm expecting my second baby with an EDD of March 1. I'm so excited! I'm seeing the midwife on July 15, when I'll be eight weeks along.

So how's everyone feeling? I'm starving constantly, but also have had several visits from the Morning Sickness Fairy already. Also, I've been having to take preggo naps most afternoons. It's a good thing my two-year-old hasn't given up his nap yet!

I haven't decided yet whether to give tandem nursing a shot. I'm having latch-on pain when my little boy nurses in the morning, but it's not unbearable. I'm not sure whether more sibling rivalry would result if he did keep nursing, or if he didn't. For now, I'll just see what happens.

I'm there too. We weren't preventing, but not trying either. We use NFP so I chart everything and I thought our chances of being pregnant were REALLY small, but I've felt off for most of the past few days and I think I'll test tomorrow. I'd be due March 7th.

I tested positive 11dpo with my son. I believe some tests say you can test positive 4 or 5 days before your period is due. If you're within a couple days of expecting it, you'd probably get a true result.

I'm starting to get excited!

I'll join up! One calendar tells me 2/28 - the other 3/1 - and since it's our first baby, I'm sure the babe will arrive after the standard 40 week date... :LOL

As far as symptoms are concerned, I'm exhausted all the time! No morning sickness yet - YEA!!!

Check back in soon,
Shelley
