Just wanted to say welcome to all of you April 2011 ladies. We've had a blast in April 2010, and can't believe it's been a year since we got our BFPs.

Having a baby in April rocks. It's not too hot and not too cold. Spring is springing and new life abounds.

Good luck, and have a great time!

Lovely! Thanks!

I'm new, new, NEW to pregnancy, and really hoping this sticks. I don't have an EDD from a doctor or MW yet because my cycles have been odd (only 3 months since I stopped taking the pill). We're just thinking "around March 30" so far. But I think I'll be way more likely to have my baby in early April than late March, since this is my first.

And I must say, I'm looking forward to giving birth in cooler weather. I'm in the midst of this heat wave (in NYC) and I do NOT want to be pregnant or laboring in weather like this!!

Who's joining me?!

I posted in the late March DDC, but I really do think that the baby will arrive in April. I was almost two weeks late with my 1st, so it's likely. My EDD based on LMP is March 28th.

Congrats Neuromancer!

My EDD is currently March 28th too, but since it's the first kiddo I'm expecting a delayed arrival so I thought I'd come and make friends in the April DDC too! I'm sure it will get busy here in the next few weeks.

I'm dropping in from the March board as well. My EDD is 3/30, but DD was 10 days late so I'm guessing I will mostly likely be having an April baby. I'm just hoping this little one doesn't come on DSS's birthday!

Cautiously dropping in - only 12dpo - but edd is 4/1. My first was a week early, but you never know....

It's so unreal to know you're pregnant before your period is missed. I feel like I just can't believe it!

Yes, that's the situation I was in, too. I tested on Sunday, but AF wasn't due until today. I still don't believe this is really, truly happening (though I hope it is!).

Congratulations to all!!

How's everyone doing?

I made the mistake of temping this morning and it was down .01 degrees and I started freaking out! I swear my breasts aren't as tender/painful either. I swear, I will never test early/before missed period again - way too stressful!

Can I join too? I am due April 3rd 2011 after testing positive at 8dpo! Early!!

I am in my doctor's office as I speak, waiting on my "official" confirmation, though I have tested positive on three IC's, a FRER, a Clearblue digi, and a partridge in a pear tree!

This will be my second, much wanted baby after trying for six cycles!

I'm here too! Don't know EDD yet, but I'm guessing early April. My cycles were a little long and weird PP and I'm still nursing DS1! So #2 is a little unexpected, but certainly not unwelcome!

I also tested positive really early with some cheapo tests off Amazon!

Ok...I can no longer resist sticking my toe in the water

And Rhi...if you are coming back to check this thread - no facebook comments as no one knows!

I'm still nursing and haven't had AF yet. I night weaned about a month ago and would have bet money that I ovulated 4th of July weekend (should have been temping!). So I was greatly annoyed when I had neither AF nor a BFP within the next two weeks.

Apparently I did ovulate a week later though as I got an uber faint positive yesterday and a bit darker (but clearly there!) positive today (on ICs). I'm guessing my DD to be April 1ish. And I'm still somewhat in shock that I seem to have caught my first pp egg!

I agree that getting a positive this early is such a mixed blessing! Congrats and good luck to all! Looking forward to getting to know you on the journey

Thanks, RhiOrion

mamas and congrats to you all!
I'm very excited to be here, but also a little nervous due to my loss a couple months ago. for a sticky baby this time! I'm 14 dpo today, but found out I was PG 4 days ago at 10dpo. Based on O day, I'm due March 31st, but both my girls were 7 days overdue, and my boys were 8 days overdue, so I'm expecting an early April baby.

Suzywan, I am still temping, too, and my temps seem to be going up and down, but still way above cover line. I understand how nerve wracking it can be though. I'm also still testing every other day just to see the line get darker (which it has been) With my loss, my test at 18dpo was back to almost negative.

Am I the only one who thinks it would be neat to have an April fools baby?

I got my beta test in today (WHOO-HOO for prompt bloodwork ).

I'm definitely pregnant, hooray! My betas were only 61, indicating that I'm only 1-2 weeks actually pregnant, which is pretty obvious considering I ovulated on July 11th.

Since I got my BFP on July 19th and the test was on the 22nd, I am doubling quite nicely.

So, I am completely in the April 2011 club now!!

I'm here, too! Cautiously optimistic after an 8 week loss a couple of months ago. Praying for a sticky baby. Looks like my EDD is April 3, though both of my girls were late.

I'm due 3/29, but I went to 42 weeks last time so I will most likely have an April baby.

Can I hang out here too? I am pretty sure my EDD is March 30th, but since I won't have an appointment till mid August for a dating ultrasound I don't know what my official due date will be. For my DD my due date ended up being 8 days later then I thought it should have, so I could see it happening again. Plus if I go at all late it will be an April baby.

Since I am going for a second VBAC I am hoping the ultrasound puts me a bit later, since my midwife practice requires a scheduled c-section for VBAC patients sometime in week 41, so later due date gives baby more time to get ready and arrive on their own.

Hi ladies, my EDD is 3/28 as well so I figured I'd hang out in this DDC too. Maybe an April fools day baby?

Just got a BFP tonight! DS will be 4 next May so that should be interesting! Can't believe this! I tested only 9 DPO. I think EDD would be April 8th. I will update after my first visit...

Congrats to all the BFP's!

IF I am pg, my EDD will be around the 12th. We already have an April 02 baby...and she will be STOKED if she gets to share a bday month with a sibling! Hope to join you all and end this 8 month streak!

I got a faint bfp last night. We've been trying for like 8 months and I think I owe my success this month to evening primrose and b complex since I am still nursing dd who will be 2 in two weeks. I am soooo excited! I literally jumped up and down in the bathroom when I saw the positive test my due date is April 6th. Congrats to all the other bfps!
