Hi all, I just found out that I'm due with our new wee babe on April 11th! I only just tested a couple days ago because I realized, hey...I haven't seen AF in awhile... :
I used to be a very active diapering board member, but haven't posted at MDC in while since my DD potty learned about a year ago.

Hi everyone!
Well, I am adding myself on without any test to confirm, but some good 'symptoms'!

I am Michelle (28) & my DP is Jacob (30), who is currently transitionning female-to-male. After 5 inseminations, we are hopefully here to stay! Our EDD is April 24.

It'll be nice to get to know you all, and it is also great to have some familiar faces from TOT (megan & sacha, arismomkoofie, mclisa, etc). And yes, I have been lurking for a while!

Hi Megan!
Well, first there are a few reasons for no test, the strongest being that I had a shot of ovidrel just before the insemination to help with the timing. The shot has HCG in it, which could affect testing. Second my symptoms...
-bigger boobs, aka: balloon boobs
-queasiness & more burping (esp after eating)
-occassional pain/discomfort in lower right side near hip
-peeing more often
-fatigue
This at 11DPO, and have been for 3+ days.
What do you think?
-Michelle

Hi there. I am 26 and just found out that DH and I are pregnant w/ #1! I've had 3 BFP's....the 1st two were relatively faint, but definitely there....and the last one was unmistakably POSITIVE. Woohoo! Baby's due in late April.

I'm going to take another test this Friday and then call the midwife I have chosen for my prenatal care and delivery to set up our first appointment. Just the thought of sitting there w/ my midwife discussing the birth of my baby makes me so excited! :

congrats kewpie! I know what you mean about being excited about finally getting to make all these decisions about the birth of our babes!

Michelle, why don't you test and then test again in a day or two if there's a line to see if the trigger shot is leaving or this is the real deal? I personally wouldn't put too much stock in symtoms since based on that we thought Sacha was pg many times and her real symptoms didn't start until at least 11dpo. BUT, your symptoms do sound promising.

Hello all! My name is Mara and I'm 31 and 7 weeks pregnant with our first. (husband Kevin is 33) We somewhat tried and are totally shocked that it happened so quickly. I've been reading up and am terrified at all the information that's out there...miscarriages, blighted ovums, etc. Haven't thought much about the birth process yet: we've been too scared about everything that might happen between now and then!! :

Due April 25! Miscarried last month, but feeling good about this one! (I think babe won't be born until May in all reality, as my munchkins are always late).

hello! joining you all in the april club. we're expecting our 2nd in late april, and i'm still nursing our first (dd 27 mo.). we'll most likely birth again in the freestanding birth center where we had DD with a medwife. i've always thought about the home option...but DH isn't so keen on it.

HI
I have taken two tests and although faint they were +. And I am feeling MS and exhastion! I think I am in denial bc I teach 3rd gr and school starts in one week!: I am very scared to go through MS at school and to be sooo tired and about my water breaking at school!!! It gushed with DS, at least I was at home. Does that mean it is likely to happen again? Oh yeah, I am 31 in 2 weeks and DS is a full time student studying to be a Dr. I think we are due around 4/20.

BTW, what is DPO and BFP?

Hi, I'm Amy. Due April 23rd with our second.

DD just turned two at the end of July.

Planning a waterbirth at a local hospital with the same CNM that delivered DD. Definitely having a doula this time and stepping up more for my rights.

Hi all. My name is Maryanne, I'm from Sydney, Australia and I've just discovered today that I'm pregnant with #3. By my calculations, I'm due on April 15. A little slow on the uptake, I admit, but I did test (with a negative result) about a week and a half ago, and have been too busy since to notice that I was really overdue until today

I joined MDC aaages ago but hadn't ever posted (or even lurked) until I remembered today when I was looking around for Due Date Clubs .

Looking forward to getting to know you!

Hi, everyone. I've been lurking around the room for a couple of days, reading what everyone has written and just being paranoid to add myself to the list. Even after three BFP home pregnancy tests and a + blood test, I'm still questioning if it's true. This will be #1 for me at 36. My EDD is April 23rd and I'm thrilled (and scared) to be here. :

Adding myself as well....
No one IRL knows yet, and I know a lot of people here on MDC IRL, so I am using a new name. When I announce to the world, I will let you all know more detailed info about me. In the meantime:

I am due late April
This is not my first pregnancy
I am having a homebirth
I am over 35

Thanks for putting up with me!
