Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old?

Are you partnered or single?

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?

I have a 3.5 year old dd. I'm still nursing - anyone else? I'm single. I got lucky on the first month ttc.

I think I am 4w5d, although I could be 5w1d. I found out a week ago Friday. I'm feeling good, although I have some pregnancy symptoms, right now I am finding them very reassuring and only minimally annoying. I'm mostly tired! And my appetite is really low.

How about you?

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? Surprise. DH just had a vas reversal in early June. Everything happened really much quicker than expected.

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? 4week Found out at just over 3 weeks. I have taken about 15 tests since then, just to be sure every day. Feeling pretty good, but as usual, the prenatals make me nauseous.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? On month really trying.

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
I am about 4 weeks and some daysalong. I just found out a couple of days ago. No pregnancy symptions, just a lot of excited energy from finding out the news. I am so excited!!!!!
SunRise's Avatar SunRise 11:53 AM 08-27-2007
Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? Yes, 4 year old (almost 5) boy.

Are you partnered or single? In limbo. Father lives and works in Turkey. I live in NY state. Same father as 4 year old though. He was a good sport assisting in my desire for wanting another (he does too) but keeping pregnancy and relationship as separate entities.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? It was planned and worked on the first cycle of trying (well not if you include last summer and the one time we tried)

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
I had a positive test on Aug 22. (12 or 15 days past conception day, depending which one worked). I have passing nausea, very little, enough to let me know, but nothing to turn me off of foods....etc. I guess I am 4 or 5 weeks along. With my first pregnancy nausea hit exactly three weeks after conception, so I have a few more days if things go the same as before. (like that happens?!)

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? I think I'm about 3w3d. Found out with a very faint BFP at 3w2d. So far the only symptoms are very sore nipples (ouchie as I am still nursing DS) and the occasional uterine crampiness/heaviness. Starting to feel a bit more tired the last couple of days.
rachelsmama's Avatar rachelsmama 11:01 PM 08-27-2007
I already have one daughter, I'm married, it took a couple months to get pregnant, but we weren't trying terribly hard. I'm 4 weeks pregnant, found out for sure a few days ago. I'm hungry, and gassy and clumsy and senile and really giddy, and my finger keeps twitching on its own. Oh, and I'm still breastfeeding my daughter, she's 2.
MamaJ2005's Avatar MamaJ2005 01:09 AM 08-28-2007
I am married with one dd, who is two(also still nursing her). We weren't really trying and got lucky one night after watching the movie, "Knocked Up". We were also on a weekend gettaway. I started feeling "symptoms" almost immediately. I knew from within I was expecting the very next day ~ I just felt different. Actually, I knew from dtd I had just experienced another little soul being created. CRAZY!!! As far as symptoms go, what haven't I had!!! No vomiting or anything extreme. Every other symptom in the book though. We haven't told anyone. DH and I are trying to hold out as long as possible. Good Luck, Mamas! I look forward to getting to know everyone!!! : ) Oh, I'm due May 2nd.

Hi everyone!

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? I have 2 boys, 5yo DS and 5yo DSS.

Are you partnered or single? Partnered

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? This was our first month trying, but still came as a surprise

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
I've already forgotten how to figure out how far along you are... it's been over 5 years since I was last knocked up! I guess I'm in my fourth week now. AF was due tomorrow and we conceived around the 16th. We got our + yesterday, then I tested again this morning. Another +

I'm feeling pretty good so far. Started feeling ready for bed a lot earlier than normal a few nights ago. Boobs are a little sore. I'm a bit crampy off and on, like AF is on her way, but I had that for a while with DS (worse actually) so I'm not *too* worried. Oh, and my body is pretty achy. That's about it so far.

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? Yup, DD is almost 2.5

Are you partnered or single? Married

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? Nope -- just BD'd the day I ovulated!

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? I'm 4W5D...but I started watching for a BFP by 8 DPO...though technically I didn't feel confirmed until a few days ago! I feel fine (like last time) just noticing those little changes -- ever-erect nipples, peeing more, and going from not hungry to so hungry I'm shaking in like 5 seconds flat!

4wk2d. Found out sort of on 12dpo (on Wed.), with faintest of faint positives. I still don't believe it. I'm feeling a little queazy, but haven't thrown up yet. My breasts are very tender. And my uterus is cramping like crazy.

Do you have other kiddos? If yes, how old? DD is almost 11 months old.

Are you partnered or single? Married to my wonderful DH.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise? I guess we were kind of trying. We certainly weren't doing anything to prevent getting pregnant. I just didn't think we would. It took us 10 months of REALLY trying to get DD. And I'm still nursing DD every 2 hours and throughout the night. I did NOT expect to get pregnant so quickly! Regardless, we are thrilled!

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling? About 4 weeks 2 days, I think. Found out a couple of days ago. Pregnancy tests have gotten darker and darker Feeling like crap. Part of what made me think to test is that I got a horrible head/chest cold. I haven't been sick since right after I got pregnant with DD and I had the EXACT same thing. So weird.

Are you partnered or single?

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?
Two months ttc (when I told my dh I was pg his reply was "that was easy")

How far along are you? When did you find out? How are you feeling?
5w3d
I found out 16 dpo (a week ago today). I made myself wait because I went a bit nutso the month before, poas waaaay too early and it got to be pretty silly. This time when my period hadn't started, I sent dh to the store for a cheapy hpt and got a bfp!
So far I'm feeling really good. Last T and W I felt a little queasy ... not quite nauseous, but a little "off". But that went away. I'm tired, but I'm also not sleeping well (is there some kind of pregnancy induced insomnia? . I felt horrible with dd by this time, so I'm really hoping this trend continues .

I have a 3.5 year old dd. I'm still nursing - anyone else? I'm single. I got lucky on the first month ttc.
Still nursing my dd, but not that often (her choice).

Overall I'm feeling really good except for being tired (but I think a lot of that goes to not sleeping well). I'm slightly hungrier, but I tend to have a pretty hearty appetite anyway (I attribute it to nursing and chasing a toddler all day long ). I feel so normal in fact, that I sometimes get a little nervous about it. But I keep thinking positive, and try to feel grateful that I don't feel bulldozed like I did with dd. Oh, and I'm very certain of my due date, since I know exactly when I o'd and when we conceived.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone .

Yes, 61 of them. Oh, you mean kids of my OWN. Nope, this will be my first.

Are you partnered or single?

Partnered... just got hitched last July 21st.

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?

Somewhere in between. We went off BC and just kind of had careless intercourse. Took two months

How far along are you?

Almost 6 weeks

When did you find out?

Guessed it two weeks ago Saturday when AF failed to make her trustworthy appearance, tested one week ago Saturday.

How are you feeling?

Don't ask. I've caught myself some kind of cold to go along with the joys of early pregnancy.

Found out very early this past weekend...approx 8 dpo (which is when I found out with my last two as well). About 3w5d now I'm guessing. Will confirm dates with my midwife. Feeling....um....exhausted. And only slightly nauseated.

I have a 3.5 year old dd. I'm still nursing - anyone else?
My 14 month old still nurses occasionally (he stopped being interested except at nighttime)

How long ttc, or is this babe a surprise?
Kind of a surprise, kind of not. I thought I was pregnant last month, which would have been a surprise. This month made it not so surprising. We are really lazy with b/c around here. :

How far along are you? I am four weeks five days.

When did you find out? Two days ago.

How are you feeling? Like hell. Ill as a snake and tired as hell.

I am still nursing about twelve times a day. I hope to keep it that way.
