I'm Jen. EDD is 6/27 but I have never had a baby show up on time so I'm predicting a July baby. I figure I'll have more in common with this DDC. I'll
be having a homebirth.

I'm expecting a late June babe but my daughter was a bit past her due date so I'll probably hang out a bit in both DDCs. I'm very excited to add another little friend to our family...this will be #2 for us.

I'm...here? lol I just found out today totally and very unexpectedly that I'm pregnant with my fifth baby. It's early days but the way I'm feeling...yeah lol

will try not to clog things up with my drama..ugh..but just want to have somewhere safe to talk about things for a while before I need to "come out" to others lol Right now, I'm the only one who knows. I'm due around July 6th which doesn't sound right? but it's what due date calcs are giving me.

I had my last two at home, and at this point haven't thought about that stuff this go round. It's weird but even with the worst timing in the universe, I'm still excited lol

HOORAY! Very excited to be here.

Megan
edd 7/2
This will be #2, DD is just over 3 and had an early loss back in April and we've really struggled TTC for a year and a half. This one was hard-won and I have a good feeling about it so far.
If all goes well this will be a homebirth, but I'll be seeing an OB for a while given my history of early m/c and SCH.

Can't wait to get to know you all! Congrats!

Married for 9.5 years, military wife, but no forseeable deployments this pregnancy
edd 7/1 tentatively, my chart was very ambiguous and could be off by as much as 1.5 weeks, so I'll probably try to get an early u/s for dating purposes
#5, will probably homebirth

Darla from OK
EDD first week of July

This our second and we've been TTC for over a year. I had a m/c in March and that angel's due date would have been next week. I told myself I HAD to be pregnant again before that due date. When I started cramping and having low back ache two weeks ago I spent the day in tears absolutely sure I was starting my period...but it was early pregnancy symptoms!

No one IRL knows (except DH). Even though I'm scared to get too attached this early, after reading lots of the forums here I've decided to fully accept and enjoy this pregnancy starting today!

I'm Jen- up in Alberta Canada
My edd is July 3rd with number 2!

It's been a long road for us- we started TTC in 2002- and it took us 3 years, an early m/c, and 4 IUIs to get our daughter- now almost 5 years old. We've been trying to concieve number 2 since she was a year old. Another miscarriage in March, too many IUIs, and I'm finally here! woo hoo! It's early, and i'm nervous, but mostly feel confident this one will stick.

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Jen
Together with DH 20 years, mom to a 5 year old daughter,
finally pg with #2 july 2/2011

slippy, I can top you , im from Winnipeg, Canada

Im Serena and based on my ovulation date in due July 2, 2010

This is our second child, our son will be 2.5 when this little poppyseed is born. With both babies we went through fertility treatments and were TTC for months and months (it took 13 months for DS and 10 months for this little babe). We were very close this time to giving up, as we thought if it doesn't work with all these drugs that it just wasn't meant to be... we are so thrilled that we're pregnant!

This pregnancy is high risk, as was my first. I have an autoimmune disease that complicates things greatly, but we are very optimistic that everything will work out.

Im looking forward to getting to know all you mama's over the next few months

Serena - married to Jason, mom to Sebastian (b.12.22.2008) and Poppy (b.07.07.2011) ♥

Yay! I'm glad the club finally showed up.

I'm Elisa, in China for now but headed back to Wisconsin in about a month.
31, married for just over a year, and this is my/our first...assuming the line turns pink! Tentative due date is July 4th.

AF is 4 days late on a usually clockwork cycle, and I have symptoms, but a tests at 11, 13, and 15 dpo have all been negative. I'll test again tomorrow when I'm 17dpo.


I'm out.

Hi everyone!

I'm Metis and I'm expecting #1. Officially, I calculated my due date at July 6th based on ovulation. But I'm keeping July 14th in mind as well since I've heard adding 8 days is a good rule of thumb for first time moms.

No birth plans yet. I'm leaning toward a midwife-attended hospital birth, at least for the first one. But all the midwives on my list attend homebirths as well, so we'll see.

Metis, partner to a peaceful soul, mothering DD born July '11

Ok I am officially coming over and joining. My name is Alyssa and I am pregnant with #4 (which was a BIG surprise) due July 1st or so. I live in NH with my 3 boys and dh. I am still nursing my 2 year old too.

I have taken about 6 tests now including a digital and all positive. So I guess it is official. We have just started telling people.

Congrats, mamas!

I'm Betsy, 35, married 10 years to my honey, and very unexpectedly awaiting #3, getting pregnant on our own after no bc for over 5 years and needing fertility meds to get our boys...I am ecstatic, and really, really, really hoping this one sticks, as this will be my last chance at pregnancy

I'm not 100% sure of my dates, but my best guess is an edd of 7/1/11...I do have a history of delivery 7-10 early, though, so this is most likely going to be a late June babe...but I figure I'll go between the groups, as I could be off a few days either way...I'll know more 11/29!

Wife to my lobster, mama to Dude (6/07), Monkey (3/09), 3 puppers and unexpectedly expecting #3 (edd late June/early July '11)!

Joining you all here too! I am a week passed my missed period, and just finally got up the nerve to take a test this morning.
It is our first, and looks like the EDD is 7/1/11. I am very happy, but also a bit shocked (we were trying, but still). Have lots and lots to learn, and I am hoping you all can help with that! Looking forward to getting to know you all, and congrats!

My DH and I have been married for almost a year and a half. I am 29.

DH and I expecting our first EDD 6/30/11!

EDD for me is 7-1-2011

Tested last night, I thought SO was going to fall over when I told him!

My name is Amber (22), I have one little boy (3) named Kain, this is my third pregnancy, the first ended in miscarriage.
SO is Dale(39) we have been together for two years now, made the jump to move in together back in May, and now we are having a baby!

I am going to have a home birth and am leaning towards doing it outside since its going to be early July and for some reason I always picture myself birthing at night. Don't know if doing it outdoors will happen or not, but I just made my first interview appointment with a midwife about thirty minutes away in a few weeks! I am excited. This will be my first home birth, and SO's first birth to attend! He has one bio daughter from his first marriage but didn't get to see her born, and two step daughters from the second marriage but they were raised by him and he sees them (and my son) as his own. So in total this will be child #5 for us, only second one birthed by me

Amber~ Loving Partner to Dale, and Mommy to Kain (9-2007), and one angel baby.

I'm Vanessa, its been ages since I've visited MDC. But I so enjoyed the experience of my May '07 DDC. So here I am.

I'm due with my 3rd. Surprise pregnancy all the way, we're still getting over the shock.

My first two were hospital births. My younger without medication/intervention. We are planning a homebirth for this one.

I'm due July 3rd.

Vanessa... Happily married to a paramedic - celebrating 10 years of marriage!  Mama to one crazy 6 year old transformer and one chatterbox 4 year old princess.  Daycare provider to many jumping beans  I'm expecting my third in late November.

I'm Brittany, and I hail from Georgia.

I had some implantation bleeding Oct 9th, so that puts my edd around July 16th I think? No BFP on the POAS yet, but I would only be 2w6d post implantation, and I am a big woman. 6'2", and overweight although I do look proportional. I am also experiencing some very early pregnancy symptoms.

This would be our first. Baby was not planned, and probably resulted from going off birth control and opting for a prophylactic barrier in order to save money while DH looked for a new job. I am very, very excited though, and just want to see that BFP!

Married to my loving DH superhero.gif, becoming more and more "crunchy" with age.

Hi,

My name is Katie and I have a 2.5 year old son that I am still breastfeeding. We have been trying for a second child for the past 5 months or so (I got my period back when he was 25 months old or so). I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was positive! I know it is still really early but my EDD according to my last period date is 7/7/2011. My son was 8 days late though so it will probably be later in the month.

I am glad to be a part of this group. I am really hopeful that my pregnancy will stay as my husband and I are really ready to add another person to our family.

--Katie
