Introduce yourself!


Re: Introduce yourself!

  • Hi there! I’m a FTM at 35 and my SO is 29. This was a surprise pregnancy (I’m a teacher, I plan everything!) but is already so cherished. My EDD is 8.22. I’m a K to gr 7 music teacher and we live with our husky-shepherd, rotti-cattle dog and cat in the Yukon. 
  • Hello! I'm a FTM, and will be 32 when the baby comes. I tried for 3 years, and am so excited to finally be expecting. This baby was conceived after my first IVF transfer. My EDD is 8/25.
  • @hey_clever_girl thanks for keeping your pic the same. I get so messed up when people change names AND pics at the same time. but I'm good with 1 at a time changes ;)

  • Hi there! Expecting baby #4, EDD 8/15/19. This is my 8th pregnancy (4 previous losses). Our kiddos are son 9, son 8, daughter 14 months! Married to my best friend, looks like a big burly biker but just a big ol teddy bear! I’m currently a SAHM (made the decision to leave my job when I got pregnant with daughter). This pregnancy is a miracle. Happened on birth control (mini pill), but it’s been difficult for me to conceive and have a sticky baby since last we’re still absorbing the shock of the pregnancy after we assumed daughter would be the last! We have an 8 year old pug, 13 year old parsons terrier/chihuahua mix, and our 9 year old hound just passed away last week from kidney failure. We have a full house!
  • FTM and could not be more excited! My EDD is 8/8 and our little one is measuring right on time. My husband and I both have the first baby gitters and questions but I’m thankful for a place like this that helps with that! Wishing everyone healthy and happy babies! 
  • Hi there. I'm expecting number 1 after a mc in 2017. We have been married for almost 2 years. I'm due on the 31st

  • Happy Saturday! My husband and I are expecting our 2nd at the end of August. We are in the “suburbs” of Philly (Chester County) Our son just turned two and my husband can’t wait to change more diapers after our oldest is potty trained! 😂 I have my first appointment this Wednesday! 
  • Hello! FTM here.  We had long said we were not having children but decided to just let things happen if they wanted to.  His parents had accepted they would never be grandparents.  They called our dogs their granddogs ;) .  I'm 30, he is 32 and he is VERY excited!   I'm due 8/23/19.  
  • Well excuse me for feeling like we were open to talk about how we felt. I've been on these pages for my past pregnancies and I have always been able to discuss how I was feeling without being criticized. Maybe I'll just remove myself from this group because this time around it clearly isnt what it has been in the past. I've lost pregnancies as well and struggled at the beginning to get a pregnancy to stick. This wasnt even the first unplanned one and I was always able to talk about how I felt. Ya know, like the emotional ups and downs you go thru with the entire pregnancy. The joke was never meant to offend anyone but I explained how my life was going now and then felt safe adding the joke because its suppose to be a safe place to talk without other jumping on you about it. Well....guess I was wrong. 
  • So happy/nervous over here. 5th pregnancy now. I have a 7yr old girl who is also blind, 5 yr old boy and have also had 2 mcs. I also have 2 step children and this will be the first for me and my so! :)
  • Hello @knottie4333f49fecce851d If you'd like to stick around & participate it would be much easier for us to all get to know you if you'd change your username. The knottie #s are all hard to tell apart. 
    Rainbow baby Dean is due 2/17/17!

  • How I feel all of the time.

    STM here. My husband and I have a 2.5 year old DD and two dogs. Wanted to try out this group as last time I found the support so crucial in the pregnancy stages and especially the newborn stage(and I still keep in touch with some moms from the group).
