Hello all april mommies:
my dh and i concieved our first child, a daughter, last year. I found out on thanksgiving day. we were trying but not for long, we were lucky and it happend on the first try. Unfortulatley we found out in march that she had anencephaly and she died later that week. I gave birth to a still born on 3/16/007. I was only 5 1/2 months pregnant. after that happened my dh and I knew we wanted another right away. my dr gave us the ok to start trying and here we are pregnant again. Based on those nifty online calculators it says that I will be 5 weeks tomorrow. That calculator also says that my due date is 4/4/08. However I already went to my first dr appointment yesterday and the u/s didnt show much. my dr said she didnt expect to see anything since it was so early. We did see the implantation site but thats it. im due to go back in 2 weeks to make sure we see a sac and heartbeat. Also she thinks, and she has to wait and see how big the baby is, that my due date might actully be in late march but we will have to see. I would love that because my stillborn daughter was born this last march and it would be so wonderful to have my next child born around her birthday. Ill keep you gus posted. Here is to a smooth next 9 months! congratulations mamas!!

by the way planning a hospital birth

I'm due with #2 on 4.7.08. My DD was born 4.4.03, so I guess July is our lucky conception month.

I don't want to get too excited as I'm not even 5 weeks pregnant and it took us 16 months to conceive. I'm still in shock.

I am planning an unmedicated hospital birth. DD1 was induced and I had an epidural, so I'm excited about going "au naturel" this time around.

Best wishes to everyone for a H&H 9 months.

Hi everyone!

I ovulated on July 18th, so someone told me that means I'm due on April 9th.

I have one daughter who is coming up on 27 months old. She's still nursing like a champ and we tried 5 cycles for this pregnancy. However, we were really only doing a really good job trying for the last 2 cycles.

DD was born at home in California and then we moved to The Netherlands when she was 3 months old. I'm planning another homebirth.

I am currently visiting my parents in the States, so DH doesn't even know yet!

I guess that's it for now. Looking forward to a fun 9 months and lots of sticky babies!

Sarah

Sarah, mother to Eloïse (5/2005), Lucas (3/2008) and Ilias (7/2011), and due with #4 (March 1, 2014)

I'm due with our first on April 3rd, according to the online due date calculator. We tried to conceive for two years, did several clomid cycles, one IUI, and one IVF. On July 14th, we transferred two day 5 blastocysts from the IVF, and tomorrow I should find out whether I'm carrying twins

Oh - and we're planning a homebirth.

Mama to twins Wren and Robin, 3/3/08.

Hi All!

I'm due April 5, and this will be hopefully my first baby but second pregnancy. I lost my baby girl in April at 17 weeks and this is my second cycle trying since then. I'm very cautiously optimistic but it's hard not to be excited!

I would love to have a home birth, but I'm already crazy paranoid and I don't think my already hypochonriac tendencies could take it. I would like to have a doula there however (you can do that at a hospital can't you?).

Congrats to everyone!

I conceived on a flamboyant BC failure on day 10 of my cycle. I'm due April 13. I spent the 24 hours after The Deed in shock, but quickly warmed up to the idea, and now I'm really delighted to have gotten the +. The timing is not great (more on that below), but we didn't plan it, and I'm not sweating it.

I have 3 other kids, aged 15, 8, and 6. #1 and #3 (the girls) were September babies; #2 was due April 17 (but born in Feb at 33 weeks--not hoping to repeat *that* ). So I seem to make September and April babies.

My real name is Grayson, by the way. I usually use it all over the Internet, but my DH is really uncomfortable with that, so I chose a different handle. I've always loved the name Sadie Jane, so I finally got to use it . I just wanted you all to know who you're "really" dealing with, but feel free to just call me Sadiejane!

[Big downer information coming--skip if you're really emotional and weepy!]
My eldest has a brain tumor (GBM or PNET, for those unfortunate enough to know the lingo). It was discovered last October; it's inoperable, but she's had chemo and radiation. Alas, they didn't get it all; she's now in the terminal phase. My big fear is that she will pass away while I'm giving birth.
[End of big downer]

My first and (obviously) second were hospital births, but good ones. My third was a birthing-center birth--I lived in NC at the time, homebirth was an off-the-grid option, one I wasn't comfortable with. Now I live in that homebirthing mecca, the Netherlands, so I'm pumped about finally getting a home birth!

Welcome to everyone--I'm looking forward to sharing the next 8+ months together!

Welcome, Grayson!

I'm so sorry about your DD, what a thing to deal with, I can't imagine. How old is she? Wishing you and her both peace.

This will be babe #3 for me. #2 for dh.

I'm due April 14th.

I would like to have a home birth but the only place the seem to be legal around here is an hour away. So maybe I'll find a Midwife up there to pinch a tent while we are driving up there and have the baby in the woods (or a hotel room...ewww)

I'm not sure If I'm brave enough for a UC.

I just have this feeling that this baby is going to be a girl. (yeah I know I could be wrong.) At this point I don't want to find out if it is a girl or boy.

rmzbm- are you going to make a list of everyone's names and due dates?

I'm so excited that April is open now!

This is my first pregnancy. My EDD is March 30. But I hope y'all don't mind if I hang out here - I feel a little lost over in the March threads.

I am planning for a home birth.

I'm due April 2nd (or so) with my second child. My first is 3 1/2 years old.

We're planning another homebirth (hopefully water). We're in the process of interviewing midwives.

I have to admit wondering about the specific nature of this flamboyance!

I'm so so sorry about your elder DD. I can't even begin to imagine what you must be going through right now.

Good to see everyone here! I am due April 1st with my third little one. I am very excited most of the time... then I wonder what I will do with 3! Haven't decided where to have this baby yet. The first two were in a hospital, this time I am thinking home but have some more talking to do with dh first.
