Well, I think since I am a 10-month mama I should start here instead of Oct. My edd is actually 10-22, but I will surely go over like I always do, lol.

My name is Vikki, and I'm sleeeeeeepy!!! But very happy after ttc for 1 1/2 yrs!

Hi Liz! Congrats!!!

I'm sleepy, bbs are very sore, and I've gagged/heaved a few times already. The more times you've been pg, the faster those symptoms start showing up, lol. I cannot believe how tired I am. I just got my prenates from my mw, so hopefully they will help. She said they are the best she's found yet!

Are you having any symptoms yet? I'm sure I"ll get more yarky as the days go by, lol.

Congrats to all who post here!!!

I had my DD in November.. actually been thinking a lot about it and wondering when mamas here would be finding out. My DD bday is the 18th (EDD-20th). I did not find out that we were preg with her until March 13th. I had gotten preg the last week of Feb.

Happy Baby Making this month to ALL...

Joining in here. I got a faint bfp yesterday and am hoping for a stronger one tomorrow morning. Tuesday will be 18 dpo. My due date is at the end of October (28th or so) but I will be telling family and friends that the baby is expected in early November. The last few weeks are hard enough without people pestering me about why I haven't had the baby yet. I think November 11 sounds like a very good due date.

Welcome, Tana! Congrats!

I'm confused about my edd. I calculated it according to the day I ovulated, which was Jan. 28 or the 29th. It said 10-22 for the edd. But when I went and numbered the wks on my desk calendar, the 40th Sunday would be Nov. 5! So if I carry over, which I'm sure I will, my mw won't be able to be here! Oh no!!! SHe's getting married in the middle of Nov. I'd already planned to have apprentices do the postpartum, but now I'm thinking maybe I should go w/another mw! I had my mw for the last 2 births. I really want her! Wah!!!

edited to add: why the diff in counting from lmp, adding 7 days, then subtracting 3 mos, then adding a year, instead of just counting forward on the calendar from date of ovulation? And why don't I know the answer already, lol? I'm going crazy already.

It's 40 weeks from your LMP or 38 weeks from when you ovulated. They usually count from your LMP since that is what most women know.

Greetings mamas!
I am Jody, mother to Annabug who is 2 1/2, and after almost a year of ttc, #2 is finally on the way. Our edd is the first week in Nov., but we shall have to see about that.
Is everyone else as tired as I am? I teach in a school for the emotionally disturbed, and I am finding it difficult to keep up with my kids this week. Thank goodness we have a vacation next week. I really need the rest. Oh, and does anyone else have a terminally stuffed nose? This is how I knew I was really pregnant. I had a permanently stuffed nose with my last pregnancy too. Yuck.

Mama to 4 darlings. A ('03), O and K ('06), A ('09), and wife to M since 2002.

Jody, I am VERY tired. ALL the time, lol. Ugh. And yeah, I've got the stuffy nose, too. If I hadn't known I'm pg, I probably would have thought I was getting sick. It's been soooo dry here, too, and that doesn't help at all! Saline nose spray or a netti pot really help alot! CONGRATS!!!!

Anyone else showing yet? I cannot believe the belly I woke up w/a few days ago. Everyone keeps asking me if I'm farther along than I said. No, I'm very certain of my dates, lol. I know when I ovulated, so there's really no mistaking it. I look 4-5 mos pg already, but this isn't my first baby, so I guess that's why I blew up, lol. I'll see if I can post a pic of my belly....

I just found out last night. . According to my LMP my due date is Nov. 3 but I'll more than likely have this little one in late Oct.

Congrats everyone. I look forward to spending this pregnancy with you.

Oh and we aren't telling anyone yet so don't tell.

Yay, congratulations to you all!! I'm not pg now, but had my ds this past Nov. Chatting & laughing & sharing with all the rockin' women from my Nov'05 DDC was sooooo much fun. We had a great 9mos together, as I'm sure you will all, too! I'm so excited for you guys, eat up every moment, time FLIES!

Chicky2, I am not showing yet. However, I aleady have a tummy so I am sure it will be mistaken for "showing" for a while. My pants still fit fine too, though I'm thinking of buying a couple pairs a size larger.

I'm just really bloated. I don't remember being this bloated with my other 2. My pants are snug.

Chicky2, you do look like you are showing already in that pic.

Hey! I got my BFP today (one FRER, one clearblue easy digital,) and FF has my EDD at Nov 1, so I'm just BARELY eeking into this group!!

Hi Mamas and Mamas to be,

I am the mother of an awesome 10 year-old boy, and I'm a special ed teacher who LOVES kids! I am at CD 28, have had pangs for the last 6 days, think I ovulated at CD 15, had sex from CDs 10-13....boobs are big and tender, tired, a little nauseous today...and I'm just so hoping that I'm pregnant! My partner and I would be thrilled. I have been here before though, same symptoms, and ended up not being pregnant, so I am just having to wait! I don't want to test yet. I am almost 37 and my cycle length varies a bit. The last 2 cycles have been 28 and 29 days, and in my previous pregnancies I got a BF at CD 31 and 33. At this point it could totally go either way, and I just wanted to say hello to all of you, who KNOW what this is like!!!!!!!! If I am pregnant, my DD would be around 11/1/06, very close to several of you. Also, I am making a bridesmaid's dress for my brother's wedding at Labor Day and would need to ask my future sister in law for another couple yards of fabric!

I'm trying hard to not to obsess and think of baby names already!

Thanks for the warm welcome, all!

I'll be telling DH when he calls tonight - he left Friday for a three-week business trip. Of COURSE that means this is the month I'm pg, and there's no way I can "hold" the news till I see him again.

I am so dying for him to call - plus I know I'll need at least 2 hours afterward to calm down so I can get some sleep . I haven't been this excited since, well . . . .ever!
