I am pretty new to posting here, but I have been lurking on MDC for a long time!

My doctor called tonight and confirmed my pregnancy after taking two blood tests to check my numbers. I took a HPT on September 3rd and got a BFP. Earlier that day I had some bleeding and thought AF had arrived. It must have just been implantation bleeding. We were very shocked because this is the second time I became pregnant on the first try. My husband is once again convinced that he has supersperm!

This is our second baby and I have been obsessed with making sure I have the healthiest pregnancy possible. I have been that way with my daughter's health for the past six months. I am driving my husband nuts! I have learned so much through MDC. I am still sad that BF didn't go too well with dd and I pumped exclusively from the time she was about two months old until she was 10 months old. I then fed her frozen bm and some formula until she was a little over a year old. It broke my heart. She was very tiny when she was born and everyone convinced me she wasn't getting enough from the breast. That is when I gave up and EP. I am so determined to make BF work this time and I know I have found the right place to help me with that!

I believe my due date is May 10th which is 6 days before my 30th birthday!

I love being a SAHM!  EPed with dd.  Breastfed for 2 years with ds.

Congrats and welcome! Maybe you'll actually share a birthday with this little one! I was my mom's bday present. I was hoping my ds would be another bday present, but he decided he liked it too much in there to leave!
