    HI all! My name is Laura! I'm 28 and I come to you from the December 2016 board. I just had my dating scan today and it looks like I may have ovulated later than we originally thought. I'm currently working towards my bachelor's in Secondary Education with a focus on English Language Arts. My end goal is to teach post-secondary.
    I suffered a MC last year, so we're hoping for a happy, sticky, rainbow baby!

    Hi everyone! I am late to the party because I wanted to be sure I saw a little heartbeat before I got my hopes up! I'm looking forward to this journey.

    -EDD is 1/4
    -This baby was a pleasant surprise! We struggled for 2 years TTC before conceiving my son through IVF. Our first child was also a pleasant surprise. 
    -We have a daughter (5) and son (1)
    -I am a working momma. I love to run!, hike, travel and spend time with my family in my spare time. My most recent travels took my to Argentina and Germany. If all goes well with my pregnancy we will be going to Belize in November. Fingers crossed!

    My husband and I have been together 10.5 years, married for over 5 - both 30. We were blessed with our first little guy in early October 2014 (due Sept 24) via csection after 26 hours of labor! Considering a vbac this go 'round. I wasn't very active on the boards the first time, but I'm actually more nervous this time so I will likely be leaning on the community!

    I'm late but here goes!

     What's your due date?
    I believe it's 1/20.
    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    Not trying! A bit freaked out (okay, a lot freaked out)
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    This will be my 3rd baby! My DD is 2.5 years old and my DS is 14 months.
    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I'm 26, married for 5 years and diagnosed w/ PCOS. Needed meds to conceive my first two. I work full time and I'm in school taking courses to be able to apply to an RN program in about 1.5yrs. I am in the horrible midst of terrible twos/potty training and my son being very stubborn and determined. So, being pregnant right now is causing me major anxiety.

    I hope to contribute as much as possible. My BMB for my son has been my saving grace some days! I look forward to getting to know you ladies!

    Hi everyone! There are a lot of us in this club ☺️

    - What's your due date?

    1/31/17: I haven't been to the dr yet but couldn't help but jump to the bump. 

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

    We were not trying, but alas, here we are blessed with a BFP. 

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

    We have two healthy children, 4 y/o and 2 y/o daughters

    - Tell us a little about yourself!

    I wish I could say that I am a pro at this the third time around but I feel just as nervous/excited now as i did the first BFP. I work full time in the mental health field and my husband is an entrepreneur. We are married almost 6 years and live in the greater NYC area. We have a big family so we wanted one as well. I'm considered AMA (40) and worry what this will mean for this Pregnancy but I worry too much. My first two PG were so completely different as are both my daughters so I am curious how this journey will be.

    I found the Bump community boards were very supportive when I had my second so I am hoping to find a community again to help support through this third PG. 

    edited to to add details 
    And then there were three...

  • - What's your due date?
    According to lmp January 22nd.
    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    Wasn't trying!
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    2nd pregnancy, the first resulted in boy/girl twins.  They're 6 1/2 and finishing up kindergarten!  Been 7 years since I've been on The Bump!
    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I'm 31, husband is 32.  We've been together almost 15 years, married for 8.  We have our twins, and always knew we'd try for just ONE more.  Planned to try in July, but it happened by surprise :)  I'm a 2nd grade teacher, we have one pit bull named Jack, and a kitty named Gemma.  Three red-eared slider turtles, Mike, Jessie, and Woody (we only got the last two because the kids were sad that Mike is my classroom pet and doesn't live at our house.)  We live in WV but are Maryland natives (DC area.)  We hunt, fish, hike, and camp.  Except when I'm pregnant, then I like to watch Netflix and sleep.  Hoping for one precious, full-term baby this time, I'd like to see what that's like.

  • What's your due date?
       January 26th according to my LMP

    How long were you trying (if you were)?
    Technically we've been trying for 4-5 months for this pregnancy. I experienced a couple of losses back to back so including those we started trying last June. 

    Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    I have a son who will be 3 in a few months

    Tell us a little about yourself!
    I'm 31 and my husband is 32. I work part time as an infusion nurse which I love and stay home with my son the other 4 days of the week which I love even more. To be honest, I'm a little nervous that I may be pregnant with twins based on some various things and I'm trying to come to terms with that before my ultrasound in a couple of weeks. But very excited as my doctor is really confident that this pregnancy is off to a great start.

    - What's your due date?
    January 30th, 2017
    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    We started trying in October 2015, and concieved our first child that was to be due on Oct. 3rd 2016. Sadly, we miscarried on 3/18, at 11 weeks.  We decided to try and concieve right after I got my period in April, and amazingly it worked! So technically we only tried for a month and our little miacle happened :)
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    Second pregnancy, first baby!

  • Hi, I'm Charlotte, 26 from the UK. 

    - What's your due date?
     23rd January 2017 - as far as we know.
    - How long were you trying (if you were)? We weren't, it was a wonderful surprise for myself and my OH which we believe was as a result from a weekend away in North Devon, UK, surfing... 
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children? 
    No other children, just a grownup cat and a 3 month old kitten...
    - Tell us a little about yourself! I love arts, crafts, music, and my Campervan. My OH loves his Campervan too, so luckily enough room for our little one.
    We have our dating scan tomorrow because due to being on the combined contraceptive pill the doctor doesn't know how far gone we are, so it could be 6 weeks or more. 
    Either way, it's progressing well so far, sore boobs, exhaustion, weeing CONSTANTLY, headaches and some constipation. No morning sickness thankfully, but completely gone off of bananas - which is strange since that was my staple breakfast haha.

    - What's your due date?
    According to the due date calculators my babies due date is January 23rd, 2017. I have yet to go to my first appointment so the actual date is unknown. 
    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    we actually were not trying and weren't looking at having kids just yet, but God must have saw us as ready. 
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    this will be our first child, though we wish to eventually have at the most 3 children. 
    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I am 19 and will be 20 in July. My OH is 23 and will be 24 in august. We will be getting married in July and are super excited about all that's going on. Currently I am in college to become a nurse and my partner is a state trooper for TN. We both are super excited about this new adventure we are embarking on!
