My name is Jenny, and my EDD is March 1! I'm really excited, but cautiously so since my most recent pregnancy ended in a m/c in March (and my first pregnancy ended in a m/c in 2001). I work at home (mostly) as an aerospace engineer and I have a dd who is almost 4. We got our positive test on Father's Day, with the lightest line ever to grace a hpt! I tested again today and it's a nice line, and I'm just really hoping for a growing sticky babe. I went 5 days late with dd, so I expect to go late with this one too, so I'll be telling people I'm due early March (my feeling is March 5th). I'm already starting to show (my SIL noticed last night!) We'll have another homebirth (probably another waterbirth). I am trying to just relax and enjoy every day.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Hi!! I just found out yesterday I am pregnant and I estimate a March 2-3 due date. I have a daughter (3 years old) and am so thrilled to be able to concieve again. We had long fertility struggles and this May was actually a month off before we planned to start an IVF protocal.

I'm 39 years old and this is my second pregnancy. I look forward to sharing experiences with the women here!
(PS CAS are my initials - my name is Cynthia).

Hi! I'm Elena, due with #3 (I have a 4 y.o.. and a 14 month old). My due date is March 1st (Astromom, I also got the faint HPT for Father's Day!) but I am expecting to have the baby in February . . .my girls were both about 2 weeks early.

This is DEFINITELY our last child, so I want to savor every moment!

Glad to meet everyone and may we all have happy and boring 9 months ahead!

 2/02, 4/05, 2/07, 11/09, and EDD 12/25/11 wave.gif

Hi. I am Jennifer. I have been waiting for this forum to open up!

I have an almost 2-year-old ds who is still nursing, and who was born via c/s. I will be spending this pregnancy preparing as best I can for a VBAC. I am also an engineer and I WAH part-time. I am trying to avoid thinking of a "due date" this time around, after all the grief it caused last time, and after reading about the inaccuracy of Naegele's rule. So I will just say that I am due in early March

Hello everyone, I am Melanie, mom to 2.5 year old Owen. Just got my BFP today, and I think my due date is march 5. I'm quite nervous as I have had a tiny bit of spotting on the tp today..... I'm only 11 dpo, so I'm HOPING it is left over implantation spotting......

Good luck to everyone,

Melanie

Congratulations everyone! I'm hoping for a BFP but won't know for sure for about a week. I feel like I am with the tender breasts, extra tired, and moody. I thought I was for sure last month, but obviously not. So, sending sticky vibes to everyone!!!

Hey Jenaka-we must be at about the same place in your cycle. What day are you planning to test?

If I'm pg, my edd will be 3/12.

Ok. Carry on, expecting mamas! I'll try not to make myself too much of a nuisance until I can actually, officially be a member of the March 07 ddc!:

Hi Ladies

My name is Rachel and I am pregnant with child # 3 and I have a 6 year old and a 18 month old and got pregnant after one month of ttc. Wow I thought it would take a few months but it did not. I have 2 girls and would love to have a boy but I would love another girl too. I just want a healthy baby... My due date is March 1st. I had my girls both c-section and am thinking about a HBA2C.

Thanks for starting this forum and for keeping track of all of us.

I am 4 weeks and 1 day pregnant! Yeah! My due date is March 2. I have a 2 year old DD. I had her naturally at a birth center which was amazing. I can't wait to do it again.

I love being pregnant even though last time I was nauseous for 5+ months continuously and then on and off until the end. I recently learned and started doing NT (Nourishing Traditions) so I feel as if I am better prepared this time around. Anyone else doing NT?

I can't wait to share our updates.

Jenny, you're starting to show?? That's crazy!

Due Nov 2010 with baby #3

I am due March 3 with our first - since my family are long 'gestaters' I am predicting at least mid-March. I tested positive on 13dpo, our 4th mth ttc/2nd mth charting. Tested when I hit a third level of high temps. Just a little stretchy feeling in my uterus and breasts are starting to be a little tender.
I work as a doula and IBCLC so I am around birth all the time, but finally it is my turn! Still nervous about staying pregnant ... so trying to go one day at a time. Planning to birth w/ midwives at the Farm in TN.
Thanks for the forum!

Hello to everyone!!! I am new to this board so I will give everyone the lowdown on me!!

My name is Anna, I'm 21, and I've been married for 2.5 years to my wonderful hubby Nick, who is 25. We have a beautiful daughter who is turning 1 on July 1. We have been TTC #2 since January and this month we got our BFP! I am due at the end of February but I'm telling everyone early March. With my DD, I was due June 25 and she was born July 1, and I got so tired of hearing everyone telling me I needed to be induced, when is that baby coming, have you had that baby yet blah blah blah. My DD was born in a hospital, delivered my a wonderful midwife who will deliver this baby as well. This baby however will be born, God willing, at our wonderful birth center. I wanted to birth my daugther there as well but was encouraged to deliver at the hospital because they thought she was going to be small (less than 5.5 pounds). She ended up being over 7 lbs and I had a bad experience so I am going with the birth center this time for sure! Mali was a surprise (gender wise) baby and this one will be too! I am excited to meet everyone on here! Congrats to everyone!!

CPST & mom

I'm so excited to be joining in on this roll call. Congratulations to all you beautiful pregnant mammas out there!

I'm 39 and pregnant with our third baby (second pregnancy). We're planning on a homebirth and I called a midwife Friday to set up a meeting with her. Coincidentally, the next day I met her at a park. It was fortuitous and very cool.

Anyway, it looks like we're due around March 1 (perhaps Feb. 28, but I thought I'd jump on this board).

Jenny, I am also starting to show. I can't believe it because it took me months last time. Now, I wonder what I'm going to wear all summer. I'm a little big for my regular clothes but really too small to wear maternity.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone .

In regards to The Farm, by moving to KY (from NYC), I feel like I have such limited options. Homebirth is 'alegal', no birth centers in sight, no midwives at the hospitals, ack! I am only 20min from the border with TN so going south is the best option. Midwives have good legal status in TN and why not then just drive a little further to have The Farm experience! I have been there with few clients from my area and got to check it out. My biggest problem is that I want me for my doula and I think I will be busy!

Congratulations Everyone!

I am Nancy (age 36) and am due March 1 according to the online pregnancy calender or later if this will be like my first pregnancy.
I have a beautiful b/f dd (feb 04) and am really excited about her having a little sister or brother.

I think it is just sinking in as I am writing in this forum... I'm PREGNANT!!!

Hoping for another natural birth, this time at a birth center and not the hospital, I had a little spotting on the 25th, but nothing today, so I am moving forward.

Pleased to meet you all!!!!

Hi all. I guess I belong here now; I got my BFP just today and I'm having a hard time taking it in. We've been TTC for almost a year now, and I think the idea had gotten so abstract to me that now it's a reality I just can't process it. I'm hoping to VBAC, and having a hard time finding support, so that's tough too.

Anyway, this will be my third. My DD is 22 months right now, and my DS was born and died in May 2003.

My technical due date is March 8 (for what it's worth.)

I'm really glad to be joining you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi! I'm Robyn (33) my husband is Rjae (37) I have a wild and wonderful 4 y/o boy and a sweet baby girl - she's not even 11 months yet! I just found out I was pregnant yesterday. We didn't plan for this so it has been a bit of a shock! I had a HBAC with dd and I am planning on another one. My due date is 3/7.

Hi, Well just found out I am pregnant today ( at least I think I am) I was having all negative HPT but I went to the dr today and again a negative test. He sent me for a blood test BUT just as I am leaving the office the nurse calls me back and there was a faint line. The dr said I am pregnant but still send me for the blood test to confirm. I know I am pregnant I just feel it. I am due March 1. I am very excited.

Hi! I go by St. Margaret, I have a DH of nearly 4 years, and I just found out I'm pregnant! I haven't been to the doc yet, but I chart and so I'm pretty sure I O'd on Jne 11th, temp rise on the 12th, so my due date should be June 3rd or 4th, depending on the online calculator I use, lol. The three-months-seven-days technique comes out a bit differently. So I'll just say "early March." But I wonder if I'll deliver in late Feb-- my DH's due date was early March but he was born in late Feb, right by his mother's birthday-- so maybe we'll have three birthdays that week in the family!

Congrats to everyone!

Tika here. Due with #2 in March. I don't put much emphasis on due dates, so I'm not going to even say the EDD because it means nothing to me.

We're really excited. We conceived on our second cycle of TTC.
