  • - What's your due date?
    Right now guesstimating Jan. 16th
    - How long were you trying (if you were)? 
    We weren't really trying, so to speak. I stopped breastfeeding my son around 11 months, but stopped birth control around 9 months cause it was making me sick. But I have always known I didn't want them far apart, so I am okay with it :)
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children? We have a little boy that will be 2 in July! I was in the June and July 2015 birth month groups, so I am excited to join another and glad to see so many others have multiple children, I will have lots of questions!
    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I am 22, and my fiance is 23, we have been engaged for 2 years, lived together for 3. I have an Assoc. of Art, hopefully working toward a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Advertising this upcoming spring! My fiance works as a service/tech at a big car dealership in our town. Currently, I work 2nd shift to avoid having a babysitter all day for our little boy, so I have the day free with my little guy and I love it<3

  • Hi! 
    My due date is 1/28.
    I wasn't trying to have a baby.
    This will be my first baby.
    I'm 18 years old, so I'm constantly receiving hate online for it. But I don't let it bring me down, because I could never see my baby as a "mistake". He's a huge blessing and I believe that things happen for a reason. I'm so excited, but I'm super nervous about telling my religious parents who despise my SO. Wish me luck on that! Congrats to all mommies!

  • Hi folks.  I can't remember if I ever introduced myself on this board.  I've posted here once or twice before but not much.  

    I technically belong to the Feb 17 group.  When I first joined, I thought I would be active in both groups but have found it hard to keep up.  I'm going to try to make more of an effort, though.  

    - What's your due date?
    I'm due Feb 5th, but I realize I could be early and deliver in January.  

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    We were trying but I was told that I might take a while to finally conceive.

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    This will be our first.  

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I've been married 2 years to my husband. We spent those two years apart because he was in London.  He was finally able to move to the states this spring. So technically we have been waiting to get pregnant for 2 years.

    1/16/2017

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?

    I stopped taking my BCP in Nov 2012. We didn't actively try (following ovulation calendars). We figured when it happens it happens and after many years we are now pregnant!

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?

    This is our first!

    - Tell us a little about yourself!

    i am 33 my husband is 34. We have been married for 4 years but we have been together for over 15 years. We have two very spoiled pups and are very excited to welcome our baby girl.

  • What's your due date?
          1/16/17
    How long were you trying (if you were)?
         
    We started TTC in January of this year and got pregnant the first month. We lost that one at five weeks and waited until March to try again. We got pregnant in April.
    Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
         
    Nope. Baby number 2! Our oldest is turning five on 11/24 so we have a really good stretch of time between the two. This one will be our last babe.
    Tell us a little about yourself!
          I'm Jamie, married to Joseph (married for 6.5 years and together for 13), and mommy to Charlotte. I'm 29 and just finished my nursing degree earlier this year. I can't wait until I recover enough after this babe to be able to finally start my nursing career!

    - How long were you trying (if you were)? Since 2013, tried naturally for a while, after a lot of docs and tests we were diagnosed IF at end of 2014. In 2015 we tried medicated cycles and then IUIs nothing even remotely worked. At the beginning of 2016 we started the IVF process. We were fortunate to get pregnant on our first transfer which was a frozen trans.

  • Hi, I'm Miranda. Stay at home mom for the moment, have a beautiful little girl who will be 4 on Feb 2nd. Clearly, this is my 2nd baby, another little girl. Daddy wanted a boy lol. I wanted a baby for a while prior to getting pregnant, but the S/O wasnt ready. He told me he was ready to try and literally a month after he said he wanted to try I was pregnant. My due date is January 22nd, so only a couple more weeks.
  • edited January 2017
    My daughter also thinks the new baby is hers. She's always asking when HER new baby will be here. Lol. She's so excited she can't stand it.

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    I wasn't. She was a surprise baby.
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    She's my first child, but her dad has two children from a previous marriage.
    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    My name is Chelsea, I'm 24 years old, I live in Michigan but am from Indiana, and I work in retail. I met my child's father at work because we worked together.
  • Hi everyone. My name is Mary Cecilia (or MC for short, both are my first name-- I know, it's confusing) and I have been lurking a bit or the last two or three weeks but only because I couldn't figure out how to reply to this thread. There's a kink in the app on my phone I think.

    Anyway, I am 27 and my husband and I married April 2016. We are due January 13th and this is our first pregnancy. We are extremely excited and had been trying since November. We just relocated from the Bay Area to Sacramento in February and just got a new pug puppy in April (already had one- 6 1/2 year old Golden). We relocated because I got a new job as a probation officer and so there have been a lot of adjustments the last few months and I know more to come.

    My family is having some tough times this year which began in January with my sister's health declining and peaked in April when she was put on Hospice. This baby has been a bright light for many people (will be 3rd grand baby on my mom's side, first for my dad, first for my husband's family). Though risky, we have told a few people pretty early and plan to tell more close family in the next week. We live in California but most of my family are in KY and FL and we see them so infrequently that we are kind of clinging to the few times we will be able to deliver the news in person even though I have read everywhere how unwise it is to do so this early.  

    We have had a phone appt but our first in person appt is June 6th which will be week 8 for us. I think we will get to hear the heartbeat which is SO exciting. I have been blessed not to have too many symptoms, beside an unsettled feeling in my tummy but I wouldn't exactly call it nausea. I have stocked up on some sea bands just in case, though. It's been so great to read everyone's intros and I can't wait to get to know all of you more as the months go on. My husband's parents live locally for us but I anticipate it will be a challenge for me to experience all of this so far from my mother and sister who I am very close to. Just taking it as it comes and praying for healthy development. Nice to meet all of you and can't wait to ride this journey together.
