This seems a lot like the last miscarriage.
My heart is so sad.

It is hard to remember my body knows exactly what to do, even when I do not like it.

Hi!
I am Kerri from Massachusetts. This is my 5th pregnancy: I had a stillborn baby boy (35w3d) in July 2005, then in Nov 07 DD Mairaed came along, 11/08 a miscarriage (10 weeks) and 11/09 DS Kieran was born. Got my BFP a couple of days ago.. still stunned. Just when we thought we were done... anyway, I am happy to be here! My EDD is around July 10 but I am not sure when my last period was.

Kerri, mom to Doran  angel2.gif  (born still 7/6/05 at 33 weeks), Mairaed (11/16/07),  angel1.gif 11/15/08 at 10 weeks,  Kieran (11/2/09).   angel1.gif 1/11/11 at 15 weeks

Hi all! I'm Ashley and I'm absolutely BRAND NEW to this website and forums in general. Still trying to get all of the lingo down, but I'm excited to share this journey with you all!
I'm in Fayetteville, NC and am due 8 July.
This is my first pregnancy, and my husband and I have been married for almost 2 years now. He has 2 boys (18 and 13) from his first marriage, and the 18 year old lives with us now, attending college.
I'll be giving birth (mandatorily) in the Army Hospital here at Ft. Bragg because I'm active duty Air Force.
The hubby and I are ECSTATIC, even though this was a gigantic surprise.

Hi Everyone! I recently found out that I'm expecting my second next year.

Due: July 17th
This will be my second baby. DS1 is 21 months now, and will be 2.5 when this LO is born.
DS1 was born at home, and I'm hoping to do the same this time around.


ahhh to be able to think well enough to create a clever signature.sleeping.gif someday i will have enough sleep to accomplish this task...

Hi everyone! Recenly found out I'm pg with #2, due 7/10. It will be interesting chasing around a toddler throughout this pregnancy, and I'm nervous about going from 1 to 2, but I'm very excited to join the group. Haven't told anyone but DH and my midwife yet

Well I am pregnant again. I want to be happy and plan on a July baby but I just can't do it yet. I am way tooo scared!
This is my 8th pg. I have 4 living children ages 8.5, 6.5, almost 4, and almost 2. I had 2 first tri m/c's 5 yrs ago at 12.5 wks and 6wks. My son Emeric was born still at 17 wks in August (8/9/10). I "should" still be a part of the January ddc but here I am and hoping I get to say.
Our Edd is 7/9/11 and based on timing I am guessing a boy.

Hello there.  I am new as well.  My head is still in a swirl that this is really happening.  I got a BFP on Monday and I am keeping this secret for a bit.  We were not trying but not Not trying either.  I stopped B/C in August and this month I thought I was a little late.  I took the test on Monday at 5 days late and got the BFP.  I have a pretty good idea that we C around 10/21.  I should have ovulated then as my cycles were about 25 days long.  So that puts my due date on July 14, 2011.   I have not even told my hubby yet.  I want to tell him in a special way.  So I think I am going to give him a Happy Thanksgiving Daddy card.  I hope he takes it well, I plan on telling him Friday if I can wait that long.  We have been married for almost 4 years and this will be our 1st.  I am so excited because I have always wanted kids.  Anyone else have trouble telling their husband?   I am looking foreword to this journey.  It is uncharted territory.

Hi! Bonnie from Kansas. This will be #3 for us. DD is June 30, but since both boys were 42-weekers, I'm pretty sure we'll have a July baby. smile.gif

Hello everyone and Congrats!  I am unexpectedly expecting #3!!! I am excited but a little freaked out. We were WTT and planned on TTC in a year or two, but this kid had other plans!

 

EDD July 21st or 22nd. Not quite sure as I can't exactly pinpoint ovulation on this odd cycle I was having.


Tired mommy to a 2, 4, and 6 year old!

hm.. i think i see a line!  a tiny, faint line. 

i also think my cycle is off due to nursing.  i tested early, around 6 days before AF, and got a negative, but tried again today.  I think I o'ed late.  very interesting!  hope i was right, i'll test again tomorrow. 

if so, this will be baby 2, i have a dd who just turned one.  so excited but am keeping it a secret from hubby till i am seeing a DARK dark line and maybe till i see the ob/gyn.

i will be trying for a vbac this time, too smile.gif

I guess that would put our edd aorund the 18th of July, not sure though, i was unprepared and don't have my calendar nearby either! 


Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

We also lost our January 2011 DS recently. He was born sleeping at 16 weeks on July 27, 2010. So like you, I "should" still be in the Jan DDC, but I'm now in July and hoping I get to stay here. I'm due 7/14/2011 now. More hugs!!

Hello! 

 

Willow

EDD:  7/11/11

2nd pregnancy

Hospital birth planned, but as long as things are boring (and there's only one) we'll see a midwife for everything.

Finally got my positive tonight on CD41! smile.gif Fertility Friend tells me that I most likely conceived on October 25, so my tentative due date based on that is July 18.

 

I'm Heather in South Carolina. I'm married to my best friend David, who was my high school sweetheart. I have two daughters from my first marriage - Lakin, age 9 and Addah, age 7 (almost 8). This is baby #3 for me and will be #1 for David. We have been TTC for about a year.

 

I had a difficult birth with my younger dd... an emergency c-section at 33.5 weeks after a placental abruption. My uterus was badly scarred (horizontal, vertically and diagonally) and I was told I might not be able to carry to term again. We had an early miscarriage in June, so we're both nervous this time around. I'm definitely high risk and expecting bed rest at some point... at the moment we're just crossing our fingers not to miscarry again.

 

(edit: I'm out... good luck to everyone else.)

I'm out.  Self diagnosing a Chemical Pregnancy.  I just took a HPT and got a BFN after getting a BFP on Monday.  I started spotting last night and today it is similar to a full blown AF.  Sending everyone sticky vibes and I will see you in a different Birth Club month.  Best Wishes!

Hi, I'm Hayley and my EDD is 7/13/11.  We were trying, but not with much hope as our second took 2.5 yrs and fertility treatments to conceive...so huge, wonderful shock for us.  Still doesn't seem real to me, hopefully I'll get there soon.

So excited to be here! We are expecting #3!! I have been married for 8 years, and I have two adorable little girls (4 and 16 months). We just started TTC this month. I got my BFP on Monday, 5 days before my missed period. I could hardly believe it! Not quite sure on the due date yet, but it looks like it is somewhere around July 19th.

Hi!

 

I waited a little for my intro...I have a 3 year old DD and after her we had two ectopic pregnancies. I have had good betas so far and we did an early ultrasound yesterday. Baby is in the uterus and everything is good - we even found fetal heart tones (at 6 weeks). 

 

We are thrilled!

 

This means our EDD is 7/8 July. 

 

Planning a homebirth with the same primary midwife that we had with DD. In Ontario, Canada, you get two midwives from the collective and they are covered by our provincial health insurance. I don't know our secondary midwife yet but that's okay since we adore our primary. 

 

Looking forward to getting to now everyone and sharing the journey!

Hi!  My name is Heather.  EDD 7/22.  This will be #2 for us.  I had a great birth at a freestanding birth center that had to close due to insurence rates skyrocketing, so I'm going for a homebirth this time.  I'm a little scared, but DO NOT want to be in a hospital, so I'm going to go for it.  My DS keeps saying he hopes it's a brother AND and a sister, me... I'm hopeing for just one in there!
