Hey, mamas! Well, I am kind of addicted to pregnancy tests and I took one last night even though AF isn't due until the 20th. And I got a BFP! I took 2 more tonight and got more faint positives. I am supposedly due August 1st, so here I am. :

Well, since there are no other August mamas yet - and I stalk the DDC boards relentlessly (living vicariously through others since, sadly, I am done having babies) - let me be the first to stay: Congratulations and welcome to the August DDC!!!! I hope you have a wonderful and healthy pregnancy. And rest assured, I'll be reading about in lurk mode! Good luck!

Aww, thanks, mamas! : Well it looks like I am still the only one here today. I probably will be for awhile since I am due August 1st and AF isn't even late yet. I got a BFP 5 days early! I can't wait to meet my first pregnant buddy. I guess I will share a little bit about myself. I have a 4 yr. old ds and 22 month old boy/girl twins that were born at home in the water on New Year's Eve. They are still nursing around the clock, so we are just taking that one day at a time. I nursed my ds through my pregnancy with the twins and nursed them all together for 18 months, but I don't know how I feel about nursing 3 again. I guess we will just wait and see. I am feeling pretty good and starting my protein counting already. I am slowly weaning off caffeine, too. :

Congratulations, HulaJenn!! My first buddy!

PookieMom, I tested on CD 21 and I have 26 day cycles, so 5 days early. It was faint but it was there! Go ahead and test. I hope you will be joining us...

My Af isn't even late yet and I am on a cracker and gingerale diet!!! LOL I didn't think it was possible to start this early. My other 2 pgs I was hardly sick at all! This one must be a boy! :-)

I'm wondering if I should join the August board? I'm technically due in late July but given my history I'm sure the baby will be born in August. If you don't mind I might join in here!

Technically, I'm due in very late July, too
I've just been posting on both boards.

Hey galls, Just BFP today, due 7-31 but August feels right. Anyone recovering from a MC? I had one just last cycle and it has gotten me a bit nerved up. It was only 5wks in and I am sure it was due to a REALLY bad cold I got but still I want to be preggers SOOO bad, I hope this one sticks!

Hi Everyone,
Posting here too. EDD is July 26th but I was 11 days past with ds and I think I am a late implanter since I just got a faint pos yesterday (what I thought was 16 dpo) August is probably more like it for me. But I might jump between both!
Congratulations to all!

April thankful mommy to my boys Big Red 3/06 Little Z 9/08 and happily awaiting the arrival of 10/10 :

hello ladies!

I'm going to tentatively join you all!

I got a faint line at 9DPO on an early response test, and immediately ran to the store to get another test! ...which also gave me a faint positive.

My due date (if I ovulated when FF says I ovulated), is August 3rd!

I'm elated, but also a little nervous that something could happen...

I think that Christmas is the earliest we'll tell anyone.

...could someone please tell me how to do the pregnancy countdown in my signature? thank you,

looking forward to the journey!

Hi! I'm going to jump in here, too. I got a positive test on the 19th--I'm still getting used to the lingo, but I think it was 14 DPO? So my EDD is 7/29/08, but I'm rarely on time for anything, and this will be my first ( ), so I'm guessing I'll run long. I'm going to poke back and forth b/t here and the 7/08 DDC. I'm really excited, but I'm trying not to be, since I know this is a fragile stage yet. Eeek. Think good thoughts!

Nice to meet you all--I'm hoping to get to know you over the next 9 months or so!

Mom to sweet DD 8/08, and adorable DS 10/20/10

I know it is hard to get too excited when it is so early. I too am going to tell my family at x-mas.
But congrats charlene!

The pg countdown I didn't realize is actually something you make yourself in your signature. You just have to update it yourself weekly -use any emoticon you like to designate your pg week and use whatever timeline you want (ie/ if you want to go up by 5's instead of 4's like I did....)
Welcome!

I just adjusted my EDD to calc from my ovulation date instead of first day of last period and got July 30th instead of Aug 2nd. Which is the more accurate calc?

The O date is more accurate since it is specifically tuned to your body, and the time your body released your egg. Not statistically when a woman should O. I would say July 30 would be they way to go.

Not for sure yet but count me in. I'm kind of freaking out b/c we are not actively TTC. We had planned to sometime in the new year but last Sunday we DTD after a long drought. We use charting to avoid and I have incredibily short cycles (22 day average) so we don't get much opportunity. I threw caution to the wind and took advantage of the time with DH b/c I thought I was still at least 4-5 days away from O. Well, come to find out after plugging in my temps today it looks as though I Oed on CD11 instead of CD13 and put me 2 days away from O. According to TCOYF my due date would be Aug. 12th.

I know I will be happy with a BFP and DH will too but this time of year is very stressful for him. He worries about finances way too much and with the Holidays coming up and property taxes due in January I think he will freak out. I'm thinking that if I do get a BFP that I will wait to tell him (or anyone else) for Valentine's Day. That will get me to 10+ weeks to make sure everything is fine. I'm good at keeping secrets! My first pg I told DH right away (10DPO) and he ended up telling everyone before I was ready. That was also a bit of a surprise and the 2WW was the Christmas/New Year's holiday and I didn't think there was any way I could be pg so it went by without a thought. This time is so different. It's all I can think about!!!

Good Luck and Baby Dust!
I'm hoping that 2008 will bring some joy to all of us!!!

Peace!
