* EDD: 4/11/11 <~~~~pretty cool! lol
* Name: Jen or JD...we have a few Jennifers in here...might have to make up nicknames hehe
* Age: 28, willl be 29 when babe gets here
* Location: North Dallas, TX
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 8 months of trying, on 10dpo
* What number child is this for you: 4th pg, 3rd child
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH-M(36), DD-8(will be 9 a week after EDD), DS-1.5
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): I would love another girl...well I do like having a boy too...hmmm, as long as it has a beating heart I'm good
* Names you like (& are willing to share): if its a girl we like Isabella(Bella...no not form the Twilight Bella...) and not sure about boys, we always have a problem with boys names
* Birth plans/preferences: I would like to not go epidural this time...after 10 hours of non med labor and DS not moving an inch i was transfered to a hospital from birthing center to deliver with epidural. This time I have NO CLUE what to do or where to go.
* Anything else you'd like to share: am hoping for a sticky baby this time. we had a mc march '10 at 4.5 weeks.

So glad to be here. Last DDC I was in, I think my body knew what was up bc I never felt completely comfortable going into the DDC...it had NOTHING to do with the ladies...I just felt like I shouldnt be in there quite yet, kept going back to the TTC board. But this time I'm so happy in here. I just pray to GOD that I get to carry this baby to term and have it outgrow me. Now when I get to whining in a few weeks can you ladies remind me of how happy I am to be pg?!?!?! LOL!

EDD: 4/6/11
* Name: (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know) Anne
* Age: 34
* Location: Hillsborough, NC
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Totally unplanned and a big surprise!
* What number child is this for you: #2!
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH-D (41), DS-S (16 months), One already neglected pup--Joshu (poor, poor dog).
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): This will be it for us so I hope for a girl--one of each would be really nice. But, of course, another boy would be great too!

* Birth plans/preferences: Same as with DS--at our local birthcenter, with DH, my sister, my mom, and my MIL present
* Anything else you'd like to share: Still in shock, but I always envisioned having two (DH was happy with one, but is taking the news very well!), so I'm very excited as well! Still confused about how to navigate the toddler-newborn thing, but I guess we will figure it out!

* EDD: 04/11/11 by LMP, 04/09/11 by ovulation You can list me under the 9th, though
* Name: Steph
* Age: 27, 28 in Feb
* Location: Michigan
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Third cycle trying after 2 m/cs
* What number child is this for you: 4th pregnancy, hopefully 2nd baby
* Family: DH, together over 9 years, married 5 years and DS, born 12/22/07
* Baby's gender: Really hoping for a girl, feeling unsure right now, (and hoping for a certain gender doesn't mean I don't want a healthy baby!)
* Names you like: We have a first/middle name combo chosen for a boy and a girl, but aren't sharing!
* Birth plans/preferences: Planning another home birth with the midwife who was there with DS.
* Anything else you'd like to share: Feeling a little nervous after two recent losses and weird because I'm seeing an OB this time around instead of a HB MW like I did with DS and my two m/cs. Hoping this baby is sticky because they are very much wanted!

Mama to DS1 (12/07), DS2 (4/11), and DD (6/22/14)
Finally diagnosed with APS after 3 s (11/09, 3/10, 7/13)

Jennifer, could you possibly put our screennames up there, please? It's too hard to figure out who is who without them!

* Name: (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know) Heather
* Age: 39

* What number child is this for you: 4
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Ted (DH), DS (10), DD (7.5), DD2 (6 in September), Wagon (Aussie shepherd), Titus (kitty)
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): We'd love another boy, to break our tie, especially dh, and I have a boy feeling already, but really, I'm just thrilled to be pregnant!

* Location: Florida
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Not prventing a year, Actively Trying for a year and finally went to see an RE since November of 09. Multiple IUI's, one M/C, and FINALLY a BFP on our first IVF cycle!! (So 2 years 8 months?)
* What number child is this for you: 2 or 3
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH-31, DS-6 y/o born 4/14/04, 2 adopted shelter pitbulls, 2 adopted kitty cats, 2 adopted horses and a ton of fish

EDD: April 15 (according to tcoyf)
Name: Britt
Age: 26
Location: RI
How long it took: 2 cycles. 1st cycle was a miss because I got mad at DH. BFP on 9 dpo
What number child: 2
Family: DH 28, DD 14 months, two cats
Baby's gender: I don't want to know. DH would like to know, but respects that I don't.
Names you like: We have them picked, but we don't want to share.
Birth plans/preferences: I'll be going for a VBAC. I would like a waterbirth, but I don't think the hospitals where I live support them.
Anything else: I loved arguing with DH over what a line is. He didn't believe the 2 Answers or 2 EPTs until I showed him (more like threw it) the digi. I'm not looking forward to the battle with my insurance to get into the hospital I want. They are smaller than and more VBAC and mother friendly than the huge hospital everyone goes to.

My dh was the same way with both my pregnancies. The denial is strong....

*EDD: April 7th

* Name: Leah

* Age: 28

* Location: Central FL

* How long it took to you to get your BFP: wasn't trying, but noticed symptoms and tested early.

* What number child is this for you: 5th pregnancy, 2nd child

* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): my DH "Chief", my baby girl Ella, she's every ounce of two.

* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): no hopes, no guesses. It's a 50/50 chance, right?

* Names you like (& are willing to share): Boy = Django Robert. Girl = TBD. We like the name "Mae" it's family and fits our theme. But we haven't discussed it that much.

* Birth plans/preferences: This is also to be determined. I'd prefer a local birth center, but there isn't one. So I might do one an hour and a half away. Not keen on a home birth right now, but I can't rule that out either. And I can't rule out a hospital either...I just don't know. I don't know.

* Anything else you'd like to share: Very happy to be here and sharing this pregnancy with all of you. I hope to see us all through to the end, and find babes in arms come next spring!

* EDD: (feel free to use 1st or 2nd half if you prefer) March 30th

* Name: (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know) Sarah or tabrizia I answer to either

* Age: 32

* Location: DC Metro Maryland side

* How long it took to you to get your BFP: I guess 1 cycle, we weren't trying, I wasn't preventing, was leaving the option up to DH

* What number child is this for you: #3

* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH Dan (33), DS Desmond (3), DD Eloise (16 months), DDog K-line (8)

* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): No clue, I am sort of thinking girl, but I am happy either way, I am enjoying having both a girl and a boy so far.

* Names you like (& are willing to share): Honestly I am clueless right now, I have a list, but am not feeling any of them. Some girl's names include: Georgia, Acacia, Hazel, Maeve, Rowena, Morwenna, and Iris. Some boy's names include: Callum, Alastair, Beckett, Griffin, and Hamish


* Birth plans/preferences: Will be going with the local midwife/OB group and having another VBAC with them. It worked well last time so we'll try it again this time. It will be at the local hospital because DH feels more comfortable with a hospital birth.

* Anything else you'd like to share: Not really.

* EDD: (feel free to use 1st or 2nd half if you prefer): April 2

* Name: (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know) Alexis

* Age: 33

* Location: South-central Pennsylvania

* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 14th cycle. Ironically, got it on an off cycle--I was supposed to be discussing injectibles with my RE today. Instead I had a beta!

* What number child is this for you: 2

* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH Neil (36), DD Aliza (3.5)

* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): Don't know! Husband would like a boy this time. I wouldn't mind reusing all the cute girl clothes, though.

* Names you like (& are willing to share): We'll be arguing till April. Last time, we didn't agree on a name till she was a day old.

* Birth plans/preferences: Hopefully hospital VBAC, but am prepared for RCS (have hypertension & history of severe PE, so it could all go pear shaped again).

* Anything else you'd like to share:

DD 01/2007, DS 09/2011
