Re: Introduction

  • anyone know why my posts keep getting chopped up? I’ve tried to introduce myself a couple times and every time it cuts off most of what I say
    I’m guessing you tried to use an emoji? You can’t use mobile emojis, only TB emojis because the bump is lame.

  • Hi Ladies!
    I am 33 and DH and I have an EDD of 8/3! This is our second pregnancy so we are cautiously optimistic. I wasn't aware of TB during the first so I am looking forward to having support along this journey and getting to know you all! I ride horses for a living and hope to do that for as long as i safely can. Excited to be here and I wish you all a Happy and Healthy Pregnancy!

  • I won't pay retail for anything either! In fact, other than possibly a car seat, my goal is to not buy anything new for the baby. Craigslist and thrift stores all the way.

  • My name is Jen and I have a 2 year old DD and was active with the Aug 2015 group that is now on FB.  I have been trying for #2 since January with 2 miscarriages so I am hopeful that this one sticks.  Based on ovulation tests I should be due 8/16 which is exactly 3 years to the day after my DD was due so that is fun!  We are moving into a new house at the end of the month so that plus symptoms should be a lot of fun!

  • Hi everyone! My name is Jordan and my due date is 8-8-18. I’m 26 and my husband is 28. We live in San Diego and are looking forward to raising kids here! I’m a preschool teacher, and have worked with children in the early childhood range for years. I had a miscarriage back in July, but feel really good about things this time around. Looking forward to having a support system with all of the August moms. :)

    Hi all, first timer here. EDD Aug 1, which puts me at 6 weeks today. DH and I are both 31. We are super excited. 

    We are currently dealing with when and how to announce to our families.  I’d normally want to wait until 12 weeks, but with the holidays coming up I think we may do it sooner! Do you all think 8/9 weeks is too early?

    Looking forward to having an online community as we go through this new adventure!

  • Hello! I am cautiously here. I have a little girl that turned 4 in October. Last year at this time we found out that I was pregnant with baby#2, but I lost it shortly after. I had a few miscarriages before our little girl also. But we are thinking positively and hoping that this is our rainbow baby! My EDD is August 6.

  • @lalala2004 I thought for sure I was out since LP has consistently been 11 days. I was so excited when AF didn’t show up on day 12 because I was thinking my LP was just getting longer! Then today, I’m like “ok AF HAS to show up today.”

  • Hi everyone! I just got my first clear BFP's today both on 2 OSOM tests and a digi. This will be my 4th baby, as I already have 3 boys (12, 6, and 4). Based on my LMP, my due date would be August 19th!

  • Hi, I’m Megan. This will be my fourth baby. Fifth pregnancy. A few months ago, I had an ectopic pregnancy and lost my baby and my right Fallopian tube. I’m cautiously optimistic about this pregnancy as my hcg levels have been excellent and more like what they’d be in a regular pregnancy. According to my lmp I’m due one August 5th.  My older kids are (almost)6, 4, and 2. I have one boy and two girls so it’d be cool to have another boy to even out our family but I just have a feeling that this baby is a girl. I’ll be happy with whatever we get.

    Congratulations to everyone on your new pregnancies!!

  • Hi, I'm Jennie.  I am 37 and my boyfriend is 38.  We are both engineers.  We just did our first round of IVF, we had 12 eggs, 6 that fertilized normally, but none that made it to blast on day 5.  We took the best looking egg and transferred it, however, we had none that was good enough to freeze.  Against odds, we have a confirmed pregnancy but my estrogen and progesterone numbers are low.  I am now on medication for both and there is a high risk for a loss.  I have another HCG test on Monday.  My due date is currently August 16th.

    I was married previously and had infertility issues.  I had two miscarriages, and two healthy pregnancy that resulted in a daughter (8) and twin boys (6).  I was active on infertility boards and birth month boards for my kids.  I had my tubes tied after the birth of my twins.

    Move forward several years, I am divorced and with a long term boyfriend who has never had children of his own.  Due to my age and fertility issues, we knew we had limited time to have a child.  We spoke to the RE who recommended we avoid tube reversal and go straight to IVF quickly.  So, we took our savings and applied it to IVF instead of our wedding.  

    So here I am, hoping to get to know you ladies over the next 9 months!

  • Hi everyone! Super nervous and excited to be posting here!

    DH and I have been married for just over 2 years and found out this morning that we are expecting our second itty bitty August 22nd (eeeek!)

    We'll both be 38 when this little arrives and I was diagnosed with diabetes about a year and a half ago so they're keeping a pretty close eye on me early on in the pregnancy.

    We have one sweet DS together (15 months), my awesome DSS (12 years) and the most cuddly puggle.

    I'm so excited to get to know everyone better!

  • Hi, there! My name is Bridget and I'm new to TB. DH and I have been trying for baby #1 for about a year and unfortunately have had a BO and two other early losses. My doc put me on progesterone and baby aspirin, and it seems to have done the trick, as we have now made it further than ever before! EDD is Aug 9. Just two more weeks til our ultrasound and I cannot wait. DH - 30. Me - 29. Glad to be here for now and hoping to stick with you all through August!
