Hi everyone! I was on this board back during my first pregnancy and I am back for my second. My name is Yvonne and i live just outside of Portland, Oregon. My daughter is 17 months old and her SISTER is due April 28th.

This pregnancy seems to be flying bye. Are any of you in the Portland area by chance?

Oh and I just turned 38!

    Welcome! I met a girl on the miscarriage board in April that lives in Portland. We've been emailing ever since and have gotten very close. I would LOVE for her to get pregnant and join us on this board, but her DH is having medical issues.

    I'm Carrie, 37, and pregnant with my first, due July 30th. I found out on Tuesday that she's a girl.  :)  <3

    9/5/18 Diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (4-5 follicles, one ovary had none and was very atrophied)

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

  • I wish I lived in Portland! My mom grew up there and now all of my family lives in Portland, Eugene, or CA. I'm the lone wolf out here in the Midwest for work. Alas.

    I'm 41 and pregnant with my second, due 9/12 based on LMP. Anxiously awaiting my first appointment and dating scan on 2/1. My son is 21 mo.
  • Hi and welcome! I love Portland but I live on the other side of the continent (Boston). I'm 38 too, expecting my first (a boy) in June.
