Hi everybody, I am SO happy to be here! By my calculations, I am due with our fourth baby on July 29th. I'm sure I'll go about a week late though, so baby will probably be here in early August.

Today is 11dpo and I was convinced that I wasn't pregnant AND very very frustrated about that. But I took a FRER first thing this morning just because and promptly forgot about it. I remembered an hour or so later and went to look at it. Is that a line?! I wasn't sure. I could see it better in the light, but it was quite faint. It looked pink, I think. BUT it was definitely after the time limit. So I tried not to get too excited while I waited until I had to pee again (thank goodness I had another test left!) Took that one and right away the test line started to show, though it was faint at first. Now it's nice and dark and I am so thrilled!

I am a little bit nervous b/c I am still nursing and I miscarried both times I got pregnant while nursing my second child. As soon as she weaned, I got pregnant again and it stuck. BUT I didn't take progesterone with my miscarriages and I did with that pregnancy, and I am with this one. So, I am hopeful.

Now to enjoy the next 2 weeks before my inevitable morning sickness sets in and renders me useless.

Chrissy, lucky mama to Noah (9), Lilah (6), Rowan (3) and Laney (1).

Many congratulations and pleased to meet you The 29th is my due date, too. My first was two weeks early, the second two weeks late, I'm wondering if this one will show up dead on time.

Fun! How do you know when you have Low Progesterone? It is not something I've had tested before, but I am wondering if I should. Also, are miscarraiges b/c of nursing common? I am still nursing. :?

hey! i think the prevailing wisdom is that nursing does NOT cause miscarriage. i am just worried because for me, i have had 2 miscarriages and both were when i was nursing, and i have not (yet) had a sucessful, full term pregnancy while nursing.

you have to have a test to see if you have low progesterone. gotta run. family calls!!
