  • Hi Ladies!

    Very excited to be on here!

    - What's your due date?
    January 13th based off LMP

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    ONE MONTH- We're legit shocked it happened so quickly.  I've had to take four pregnancy tests just to confirm it to myself

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

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    Husband and I are both 29 and we currently live in London, England (in a one bed flat- yay!).  I'm originally from Rochester, NY and moved to London for work, where I met my British husband and now I'm stuck! I work for an American ecommerce company and have a pretty stressful job, but it has GREAT maternity benefits so that's good.  Hubby works in Content Marketing. I'm the first of my friends to get pregnant, so I look forward to having this community to go to!

    - What's your due date? 1-15-17
    - How long were you trying (if you were)? We weren't trying, actually my husband was very adamant we weren't having anymore. But it appears i ovulated crazy early this cycle. 
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children? I have 3 living children 16, 7, & 5 and have had 2 losses in the last 9 months. Oct a Mmc at 8w4d and a chemical pregnancy in Jan.

    - Tell us a little about yourself
     I have begged and prayed for another child and my husband kept saying no. This month I didn't think there could be any chance of pregnancy because we were abstinent during the window we normally prevent(condoms). But when my period was 4 days late and I started feeling nauseous I thought I'll test just to be sure but I really thought I was catching the bug my daughter was fighting. Low and behold it was very positive. I went and had my first beta yesterday and they called today and said its 13.300. Progesterone is 18 so I have to take that everyday thru my first trimester. My beta is so high so I asked why and she said I probably ovulated earlier making me more like 5 w3d instead of 4. But I'm so nervous. I go back tomorrow for another beta draw.
    I hope to stick around and get to know everyone. Best wishes for a healthy 9 months for all of us.

  • - What's your due date?
    From LMP - 1/3/17   From FF - 1/2/17

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    TW: Losses mentioned
    We started TTC just about one year ago.  We conceived right away, but unfortunately had a MMC at 11 weeks.  After waiting several cycles, we conceived again in our second cycle of trying.  I had a natural miscarriage at a little over 5 weeks.  After that, I was referred to a reproductive endocrinologist, where it was discovered that I had a uterine septum.  Earlier this year, I had a hysterscopic septoplasty to remove the septum that was apparently covering approximately 50% of my uterus.  After healing and receiving the all clear, we conceived again, and here I am.

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

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I love the Bar Method, hiking, and my dogs.  And of course my husband.  I'm not sure to what extent I will be active on this board, but I wanted to introduce myself.  The anxiety is real.  I never thought this would be my "story," but I've learned that I'm much stronger than I ever imagined.  Best wishes to all for healthy, uneventful pregnancies.

    Hi! I'm excited to meet everyone. 

    EDD:  Jan 14th

    How long were you trying: 1mo 

    Other children: 1 daughter who just turned 2 in April.

    About me:  I'm currently a SAHM living in Seattle.   I have a PhD in Pharmacology  (specializing in the neuroscience of hearing), but my first daughter was born with a rare genetic condition, so after she was born I decided to stay home and focus on her and her therapies.   I was very active in my A14 group and still am, although we moved sites after the exodus.  I'm excited to go through this pregnancy with all of you!

Any other NYC-ers out there?

    Hey everyone!
    I am due January 24 according to LMP...been testing for several days, but today the line is dark enough that I'm confident it's for real.  :)  
    I went off BC almost two months ago, and here we are!
    We have 2 DD's, 22.5 months and 11 months...if anyone has questions about close babies, I'm happy to chime in.  It's not been easy, but it's doable, and I LOVE seeing our girls interact and become friends!
    DH (37) and I (30) have been married for 3.5 years and we live in the Midwest.  I'm a sahm and he/we own a local septic/porta pot business (I grew up in town and knew nothing about septic until I met him!! Every day is definitely interesting.).  We want probably 4 kids total and are happy to be having them close together.

    ETA: I was not on TB with DD1, but was fairly active (still am occasionally) on DD2's board, June '15.
