I think I am the first one...no? I am only 7 DPO, and I am only 99% sure at this point, my tests tonight had very light lines on them, I bet the one in the morning will be darker. If not I guess I will start the June thread, but not be here!! Oops!
Anyone else at this point? My DD would be June 4th!

I belong here too, with an edd of June 2nd. I am... in shock right now and somewhat terrified since I lost my last pregnancy at 20w. I'm thinking positive though!

I got a faint positive this morning, so I'm pretty certain I belong too. This is #4, so I'm pretty good at spotting those positives, no matter how faint (I'm addicted to HPTs), lol. I think our due date is June 2nd.

I've been waiting for this thread all week, but too nervous to join! But, now I'm ready. This baby will stick! I will carry this baby to term. I just know it.

So, I got my BFP on Monday at 11 DPO. Two blood tests show the hcg levels going up and up. Still awaiting the results from my 3rd. When do you think my due date is? I O'd on CD 20, so I am not sure how to figure it out.

Chesapeake, http://www.intmed.mcw.edu/clincalc/pregnancy.html

That link is to a due date calculator. Then what you do is take the date it gives and add 6 days to it, since you o'd 6 days after day 14.

Anybody else have an EDD?

I'm going to tentatively join the June DDC. I have taken no tests or anything. I'm just simply going on pure intuition. Last month I got pregnant and miscarried at about 5 weeks. This month, things are totally different, but the same. I feel very tired all the time already and I'm only about 8 dpo and have a real fullness in my lower abdomen. I can't explain how I know, but I feel this time is different. According to FF, my expected DD will be 6/5/08 which is the day before my birthday. I really feel like there is someone there now which is totally different from how I've felt for the past year and some of ttc. I've had this exhaustion for about a week along with nasal congestion and a minor sore throat (still have it). I thought I had a cold.:

Feelings? Besides dog tired , I'm excited and very happy. I have an aversion to sweets (which I've been addicted to for a very long time...). Today for example I had some sweet cake thing from Whole Foods, but didn't like it, though this morning I ate an orange like it was the last one on earth or something. I think I'll hang out with you all until I find out for sure. I usually don't test until after 15 dpo so I'll definitely let you know.

Can I join even though I'm not completely sure by way of a pregancy test? :

I hope I didn't jinx myself by joining this DDC before waiting to see what would happen.

I just got my blood work back and my HCG levels haven't changed. They have not gone up or down. I am shocked. I felt so so good and positive about this pregnancy. I have felt so many more symptoms then when I was pregnant in July.

Please help me stay positive. I know worrying will do no good. Do you think it is still possible that the embryo is still alive? Have you ever heard of HCG levels doing this before?

Chesapeake, I have no experience with HCG levels, but my fingers are crossed for you that things are ok.

Chesapeake, that can happen when you start out with multiples but lose one. Also, it can be lab error (happens more often than you'd think). Please tell me the dr is doing another one (or two)?!

UberMama- Well, my levels did triple at first so maybe there was more than one embryo.... The doctor will do another one on Monday. Unfortunately, I do not think it is a lab error because they redid the lab (using the same blood as before).

Here is some info I found on line to try and calm me down in the meanwhile: " ...however, an HCG that does not double every two to three days does not necessarily indicate a problem with the pregnancy. Some normal pregnancies will have quite low levels of HCG, and result in perfect babies... I can't tell you how many patients I've had who convinced themselves that their pregnancy was doomed based on inappropriate interpretation of HCG levels, only to discover that everything is fine when an appropriately timed ultrasound is performed." From Dr. Robert Warnock, WebMD.

I wish my doctor had given me a little more hope - it is better than sitting here stressing out until Monday. I guess she just does not have the experience to offer it. She said she had never monitored a pregnancy this early, nor had she ever seen an HCG level plateau. Maybe I'll be the first patient to show her not to put so much value on these tests. I contacted a dr in NYC who is a specialist and she said not to worry at all and that this can happen early on.

There is no way I am losing this baby.

Hello all!

Chesapeake- All the best on your HCG. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about and you'll have a very sticky baby. I don't think you're jinxing yourself. Heck I'm here and I haven't even tested yet. I just have a feeling that's all.

Speaking of that, I'm still kind of congested if you can call it that. I can breathe fine, it's just that my nasal passages are funny and feel more open. I'm also blowing my nose more often as I have more mucous, but my nose isn't running. I'm a bit tired earlier in the day and then closer to the evening I'm feeling more awake. I'm still going to wait until Friday or so to test though.

Well I hope that I can join you ladies really. I'm very excited about this. I even bought a BumGenius at the fair yesterday! : I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

I get to join too!!!

My name is Shannon and I also tested yesterday and am due June 2nd. I charted this cycle, so I'm sure of my due date.

I've had past issues with m/c, so I'm really hoping I get to stay until the end this time. My line was nice and dark at 15dpo, so that's making me optimistic.

Shannon & Paul...married since 2000. Parents to Alexander Paul Martin - 30 October, 2003 Grace Elizabeth Maile - 12 June, 2009

Hi, I'm new... I've posted on the cloth diapering discussions, but not on the pg forum before.

I just tested positive this morning with a very faint line with a dollar tree test. I'm either 10 or 11 dpo. I bought a two-pack of FRER tests this morning and am debating if I should test in a few hours or if I should wait till tomorrow morning. This will be our 4th child, but 7th pregnancy because of miscarriages and an ectopic.

I'm due June 6, but my previous two children came a couple of weeks early. I'm very, very nervous about another miscarriage given our history. I will probably try to get in on Thursday for a hcg beta and progesterone test.

Congratulations to all of you!

All the best to you Tulips! June 6th is my birthday!!! It's a wonderful day to have a baby and you'll get a really nice kid too (maybe I'm just being personally biased )

I think I'm going to try and hold my pee and test today. I'm really tired all of the time. My nasal passages have cleared, but I still sound like I have congestion (wierd), and my chiropractor told me that my pelvis feels like that of a pregnant woman. I feel pregnant right now really. So I'm going to test and see if I can get a line this afternoon. Let's hope that I don't feel like I need to pee desperately or anything then I'm pretty much shot. I'm 12 dpo right now so I feel safe to test. I hope to be joining you for real...
