  • Hello everyone,
    Nothing official yet so it may change but currently a due date of January 30th, this will be my third pregnancy.  I have an 8 year DS and DD is 2. 

    We hadn't been trying but after the shock wore off we couldn't be happier. 

    I just finished my MBA so was getting excited for big future job prospects, that's  put on hold now, which is fine I have all the time in the world to work. Other then that I'm afraid I'm not very exciting,  the last 5 years have been a blur of kids,  work,  and  school.  

    Looking forward to sharing our journey!

    I'm 31 and have been married to my DH for 5 years.  We live in NJ and I work full time. This is my 3rd pregnancy- I lost the first at 7 weeks and DS is my rainbow baby.  I've had 2+ weeks of unexplained bleeding with this pregnancy so I've been hesitant to intro, but saw a heartbeat yesterday and am feeling a bit more confident that this baby will stick.  I occasionally lurked on my last BMB  but want to participate more this time around.  Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

    January 16 based on LMP.

    I'm 26, DH is 30, and we've been married for 6 years. We live in the Salt Lake City area and love it, although we are Disney freaks, and spend a good chunk of time at Disneyland (we have annual passes). DH works in IT (enterprise storage if you're familiar) and I'm an ex 4th grade teacher for now, staying at home with my daughter. In my spare time, I eat, fantasize about, shop for (Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Costco are my happy places) and cook food, and try to love to exercise. 

    Super excited to be a part of a BMB again! I mainly lurked in my last one (July 14), so I'm excited to be a little more active this time around!

I love to cook, especially Thai/ Indian food right now. I'm just starting to get into gardening, which is going ok, about 1/2 of the plants I planted this spring are still alive!

    Hi ladies! I am so excited to be here. 

    What's your due date?
    Online calculators say Jan 21, but I have not had that confirmed yet. First appointment is June 13.

    How long were you trying (if you were)?
    We started trying (kinda, but not too seriously) in January. This last cycle I actually had started temping and using OPKs. Now here we are! 

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

    Tell us a little about yourself!
    I just turned 30 and I've been married for almost 4 years to my DH (he is 32). Right now I am student teaching in a kindergarten class; needless to say it is exhausting. We are both graduating in June with our bachelor degrees (good timing right?) Mine is for teaching and his is for finance. Hoping he will score a good job as I am just planning to sub until baby comes.

  • Hi ladies!! 

    My name is Brenda and I live in Maine.  I am 6 weeks and 4 days pregnant (Due Jan 11th)! We tried for about 7 months before being diagnosed with PCOS which made me not ovulate regularly.  I was prescribed Clomid and took Ovidrel trigger shot and BAM! First try and we are pregnant! 

    I have been a nervous wreck the entire time thinking something is going to happen.  I had some spotting at 4wks 5 days.  Just very light brown, only when I wiped and only lasted 3 hours but scare the crap out of me! We checked my hCG levels that day which came back 1608 and again 2 days later and they were 3124 so all seems good.  My first OB apt and U/S will be this coming Friday (5/27) and I could not be more excited but nervous.  I keep telling my fiance that I will feel a lot more comfortable and relaxed once I see that little flutter on the screen.

    Sorry this is so long lol I look forward to following you all on our journey! :)

    What's your due date?

    I don't officially have one yet,  but the online birth calculator says 1/28/17. Since I will need to have a c-section,  it will likely  be earlier. 

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    20 months.  We were not actively trying the traditional way the whole time.  A lot of it involved waiting and taking the steps I needed to do ivf. 

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

    This will be our first

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I'm a "young" 42 year old. I just found out about the pregnancy 2 days ago and am thrilled but nervous at the same time.  I would love to connect with others that are having children at an older age.(late 30s and 40s) I was lucky to find out early on that ivf was the only way for me to get pregnant,  but we had to go through hurdles to get started (insurance denials, surgeries,  etc) but I've been found strong. This will be an exciting and very new chapter in my life.

    Im 23 and my husband is 30. I got married just before Valentine's Day this year. We've been together 4.5 years now. About a month after we got married, we moved out to the southwest Kansas area for his new job as a crop duster pilot. I was almost done with college before realizing how miserable I would be in that particular career field, so I'm exploring other fields now. I was born and raised in a Florida beach town where the majority of my family lives so I'm still trying to acclimate to being in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and wish everyone a healthy, happy pregnancy.

    Hi, Everyone!

    - What's your due date?
          Hopefully I won't get kicked out for this- LMP says December 28th. BUT DD's ultrasound dated her 10 days behind my LMP EDD, and this time, I didn't get a BFP until I was supposedly 5 weeks. Doctor still got a negative urine test that day, but blood results came back positive. So choosing a birth month club came down to if I want to most likely give birth LAST, or possibly two days before the right month (DD was full term). I'm not very patient, so here I am January ladies! :smiley: 

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
         Not planned, but never unwanted!

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    DD Lucy just turned 1 year old!

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    26 year old SAHM with a handsome hubby, age 29, who works in IT. Small town Iowa girl who somehow ended up moving all over the country! In Seattle now, but relocating again soon. I tend to overshare, but that makes these message boards more fun, anyway, right? *Just read through some other's responses- wanted to say I also met my hubby online, and he's originally from far far away as well* also thinking accidentally posted this as a reply to someone else? Sorry!

  • Hi Everyone! My EDD is 1/25/17 according to all the sites. My first doctors appt is not until 6/13, very nervous for the wait. This would be a new doctor and I'm still unsure if I should just stay with my previous OB, which I loved. We just don't live as close. 

    We we were trying for over a year, gave up and boom, here we are! 

    I have a DS, 2 y/o. I was part of May 2014 on the bump. 

    I been married for 3 1/2 years. Have an awesome son and husband. I have PCOS and was told I would probably never have kids. I look at my son everyday as the best miracle ever! And I pray everything works out this time around! I had previous losses and probably won't stop worrying until I officially see the heartbeat.

    looking forward to getting to know some of you and sharing in this crazy, fun, terrible (ha) experience! 
    emerald24-2
  • - What's your due date?
    not sure yet, will update after doc visit. Didn't get a BFP until 6 weeks, after LMP so I think I may have ovulated late, like I did with my first. 

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    Since my first DS was 9 mo old so 2.5 years

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children? I have one 3 year old son and I mc'd after using clomid in Dec. 

    - Tell us a little about yourself! I'm a plus size momma on Prozac. I don't like petty drama, but I like having support on here. My son is autistic non/verbal. I'm freaked out about possibly losing this pregnancy too after what happened with the last one, but trying to be hopeful. I'm excited to get to know you ladies

  • What's your due date
    January 1st based of Fertility Friend app. Haven't been to doctor yet. And I didn't test until May 11th because I thought there was no way I was pregnant. I feel like I got 7 freebie weeks!! 

    How long were you trying? 
    We weren't. We were actively avoiding getting pregnant around April due to not wanting a holiday baby. We were going to start trying in July because I had wanted an April baby. God had other plans!! 

    Do you have any other children? 
    Yes. We have a 16mo old son who is just the best. This baby and my son will be exactly two years apart. Their birthdays may be at most 3 weeks apart. 


    Tell us about yourself 
    I'm 25, my husband is 30. We've been married 3 years tomorrow. We were not expecting a baby for maybe another 4-5 months but Gods timing is always better than our own. I work 10 hours a week as an interior designer and am otherwise home with my boy. My husband is a personal trainer and owns his own company and specializes in training athletes.

    I got pregnant on the second cycle (btw I STILL cannot believe that you can only get pregnant a few days a month..... Why did I never know this before???) 

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    First child (apart from my dog who is 17 and the best thing ever!! This baby has a lot to live up to!!) 

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I am 28, married my husband in December 2015 after 12 years of dating. He just turned 30. I never really thought about having a baby, it never crossed my mind until 2 months ago when a light bulb went off in my head and I decided 'I WANT A BABY'... Now I have one in my belly and I don't think I've ever been as excited!!
