  • Hi All!

    My EDD is June 5th (just four days before mine).  We’ve been trying for several months (and so many negative tests!) so as soon as my period was late, I knew this was it!

    I am a former personal trainer and group fitness instructor.  These days I stay home and volunteer at my oldest’s school as president of the PTO.

    My husband and I have two boys, 8 and 4 and a boxer named Lucy why is 5.  

    I like reading, crossword puzzles, going to concerts and working out.  

    I am so happy to be in this group with other moms.  This is my first time using an app during pregnancy.

  • @kpearse99 thank you! I hope to see you here after those betas!!

  • Hi! So I found out about our little one on the way when I missed my period for 7 days and decided to take a test. I had been on steroids for a rash I had so I was thinking that delayed my period so I wasn't expecting a positive test. This is my first pregnancy. I want to be a momma more than anything in this world! I haven't really gotten excited yet. I guess I am just trying to guard my heart while we wait and see how things are going at our first appointment. My EDD is June 2. I have been married to my husband for 2.5 years. We have 2 outside cats and a chocolate lab. I love being at home and sitting on my front porch. I love playing with my pup and snuggling with her. I previously had struggle with depression but have healed from that and I still struggle with anxiety (but I not as bad as I use to before counseling and medication) . I'd be open talking about that with anyone who needs to. I'm ready for Monday to get here for my first appointment! If everything goes well we will be telling our family the following weekend 😊

  • Hello Mama's
    I'm so excited that after 9 years, I'm blessed to be apart of the bump form again. This community was so amazing during my second pregnancy with my son who will be 9 years old in November. I'm BACKKKK !!!

    - EDD 6/8/2020
    - How you found out - My story is amazing and funny. So it was my bridal shower night (pole dancing lol) that this wonderful buddle of joy was created. Our wedding was next week ohhhhh!!!.  Towards the end of the month, flow was about two days late and I was having very bad dizzy spells and sickness and my breast hurt terrible ( I remembered that feeling). I thought, "I'm not pregnant" but I had this overwhelming feeling to take a test. I went to CVS and pick up the digital Clear blue.  I did my thing, walked away thinking it would say Not Pregnant. I waited... "Your Not Pregnant" Maybe you're coming down with something". then walked back in slightly looked down and saw "PREGNANT"!!!!!!!
    - Hobbies, Job- I'm a Make-up Artist and this is my passion. I work Full time as Progam Analyst.
    - Spouse, Partner, Kids, or Furbabies- Just married 9/21/2019 (Newlyweds) I have 2 son's age 23 & 9. My Husband has one son age 17.
    - Anything you’d like us to know 🙂- I'm so happy to be here and share this journey with my June Mama's. I don't know if the little one will come mid or late May. But I'll have another Gemini baby like myself.

Maybe that means a girl?! Only time will tell!!

  • Hi! Pregnant with my third baby! Due June 13. I like plants and baking bread!

  • Newbie here: how are all of you getting and monitoring your beta numbers? Is this a test we can buy?
  • @themcdonoughs betas come from a blood draw your doctor would order. If you are low-risk, and aren’t having any concerning symptoms, they likely won’t order betas for you. Many offices won’t see you until 6-8 weeks for a dating and viability ultrasound. 
    kiki75stassischroeder
  • @themcdonoughs This is my third pregnancy and I've never had betas taken. I go for my first appointment at 8+1

  • @lyndshurt welcome!! I was diagnosed with gallstones in pregnancy and it didn’t put me into any high risk category. I was able to start in my hospitals midwife led birth centre. I had the surgery when my daughter was around 5 months old and it made SUCH a difference. Gallbladder disease is not fun! Note- I’m in England where they’re a bit more relaxed than the US but I do know a US based mom who was in the same camp as me!

  • Thanks for sharing @hayhay2501! I read that second tri is the safest time for surgery so that makes sense. I’m hoping I can find care like that around here 🙏🏻 Glad to hear it didn’t make you high risk. 
  • @lyndshurt I know someone who had theirs removed during pregnancy. Everything was fine and baby is happy & healthy. Hopefully yours will hold out through pregnancy but it’s possible to develop secondary conditions like pancreatitis from gallbladder issues.

  • @lyndshurt Welcome fellow home birther with a surprise third baby, we were also planning to avoid this one (our third).

    No personal experience, but I've known several Bump moms who had gallbladder problems but weren't high risk.

  • Thanks for the insight @kiki75 & @pourmeanothermocktail ! That gives me some peace  :) I’m seeing a doctor on Monday so I will hopefully have some answers/clarity soon. I would love to give birth at home again but definitely want to do what is safest for baby & myself.

    Hi all! I found out I was pregnant about a week ago and have been lurking a little since then. I had an early MC a few months ago and didn’t want to jump in too soon. I’m still in disbelief a little. We’d been trying for almost a year so I was kind of over it. I started out strong, temping and charting, but by the end I thought it might not happen. 

    I was taking Wandfos but I was so over it I guess I wasn’t even waiting long enough for the line to show up before tossing them in the trash. With my last two I knew I was pregnant immediately. This time there were no obvious symptoms so the night before my period was supposed to arrive when I had a line show up I was in shock. I had had a weird craving that day and my husband said, “you’re pregnant” and I said, “no way, I don’t feel anything.” The next morning we got some FRERs and sure enough positive. 

    I’m 35 and have been married for 10 years. I have 3 kids, kind of. Two are ours, 8 and 4, and an 18 year old who we’re the legal guardians of. She’s been with us since she barely turned 16. We also have an old cat and a new puppy. 

    My current EDD is June 12th. 

    Happy to be here. :) 

    ETA: I haven't been on here since I was pregnant with my 2nd, 5 years ago. I don't remember how to remove that image at the bottom that isn't showing up anyway. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'm sure it will all come back to me. TIA
