Hi thought I would do a little intro. I am a 26 year old SAHM with 2 boys. DS1 is 2.5, DS2 is 19 months old. If you did the maths yes they are 10 months apart.

We decided that 2 was it for us after our second son but a suprise in Sept last year made us second think and we got excited about having a third, sadly we m/c at 8 weeks. Since then I have been up down and all over the place. Yarning for a 3rd but DH was not in a good place yet.

We decided a couple of weeks ago to TTC next year and then, whoops, no AF, BFP, were 4 weeks tommorrow.

My fingers are secretly crossed for a girl, but I have a fairly strong feeling on a boy.

I looking forward to getting to know you all and excited about completeing our family original.gif

Yey! Congrats. What's your due date? According to due date calculator on here I'm 16th August but according to 'what go expect' app I'm due 14th.

Sending you lots of sticky vibes and have fingers crossed for a girl for you original.gif we have a little boy who will be 2 in Jan. I have a feeling this little one is a boy too. We are only having two, so would love one of each but would be more than happy with two gorgeous boys!

Look forward to sharing this time with you xx

Hi everyone
I'm 36 and so is DH and this is baby #1 for us. Second pregnancy but 1st was exactly 2years ago an ended in MMC 3 days before Xmas at 8w3d.

We had to go through 18 months of fertility treatment hell - 6 clomid cycles, operations, tests, 3 FS and 2 fertility clinics with 7 IVF/FET cycles to get this BFP!
I am 4w3d today and I'm due on 7 August.

As for purchases the only thing we have to buy is our pram as we bought all the big things last preg so they have just been sitting in the babys room. We have everything - boy/girl clothes in all sizes, toys, bouncer, bumbo, theme for the room for boy/girl - buying baby stuff each IVF cycle got me through.
I know we are getting a bugaboo. It just depends on how many embryos stuck on what we get. If its only one we are getting a chameleon and if it's two we are getting a donkey. My parents are buying the pram so I can have whatever I want but this is the one I have always wanted.
We will know in a week how many there are as I'm seeing my Ob on 10th Dec.

Hi all. I will reply properly on the computer so please dont think me rude for the short reply.

10 August 2013 is our baby's due date.

I love the bugaboo but we went for the strider plus.

Another purchase, another monitor lol. It has a longer range and not video so I can take it outside.

Okay I am on the computer now so I can reply properly.
Wow you have been though A LOT. I really hope this little one or more than one are sticky. My mum was 43 when she has my sister, 16 years beetween us, so age is no facter original.gif

I love the bugaboo donkey, if we have twins I really want one but can't afford $2000. We bought the Strider plus when we found our we were pregnant with our second, as we would need a pram suitable of a 10 month old and new born. Its suited perfectly. We will be getting the capsule for this baby to make my life a little easier with a 3year old, 2 year old and newborn.

I am lucky really, I was told at 19 I would never be a mother, of if I did concieve it would need to be assited and I would not carry to term. I had my op for Endo in 2008, I fell pregnant in the first month with DS1 in 2009. Carried until 39+2. DS2 well I didn't know you could get pregnant after having a baby straight away without a cycle inbetween. We planned a 12 month gap but he decided I needed a little more of a challenge. Casrried him to 39 weeks. Concidered term, although DS1 was assessed at birth to be more like 37 weeks, so he was early but still term. Our m/c was a suprise also, on the pill an using condoms and still got pregnant. This one was planned for next year but once again we have jumped the gun lol. We are done at 3.

2 boys is awesome, my 2 are the best thing ever. Tonka trucks and Tractors, Trains, Cars etc. Our house could do with evening out a little. I have almost everything for a girl, handmedowns and od course set of a boy.
I had a dream last night it was twins, if that happens then we will need to do a bedroom shuffle too as the nursery for this one is only big enough for a wardrobe, dresser and cot. We have a massive playroom though so it compensated for the small bedroom. Our sons and MILs room are larger and ours is massive.

Big congrats on your BFP! This stories make my heart melt. A little girl would be lovely but i usually think our first instinct is right. I know it was with DS. Good luck with your ob appt.

Hi ladies! Tentatively joining this group as I just got my BFP!!! DP and I have been TTC #1 for 10 months now :-D

Using the due date estimator I will be due August 15th, just 6 days before my birthday!

I am extremely excited, although very nervous as well. My last BFP ended in a MC at 11.5 weeks so fingers crossed that this little bub is my sticky!!

Hi Petal, fingers crossed for a sticky baby this time. We m/c in october last year and have been trying on an off. This time we are waiting for 12 weeks before we tell family and depending on how I am showing, I showed extremely quick with both boys, we will either wait till 15 weeks after our gender scan to announce on fb and friends etc or if I am showing we will announce the baby at 12 weeks. I also suffer severly for moring sickness so that I can not hide.

Oh can't believe I missed this thread! :-)  There are a couple of people in here that I haven't added to the list so I will add you in over in the chat thread.

I think I've said hi to everyone who has posted here in the other thread except for Robynd waves.gif and Congratulations!

Leebec- your story is so inspiring and I am just so happy for you.  I LOVE our bugaboo chameleon and we will be upgrading to the donkey now we have #2 on the way.  My DD will be 2 in May so will need a double pram.  A good friend of mine has the donkey and she loves it!  Would highly recommend bugaboo to anyone!

Chickymumma-  wow your story is amazing as well!  Doctors don't always get it right do they!  As you can see from my sig,  they didn't get it right in my case either (told it was highly unlikely we would conceive naturally and that even IVF would be a struggle.)  

Anywho, hope everyone is feeling OK and looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hi Everyone,

I thought I should introduce myself. I am 28 years old and my DP is 33. I found out 2 days ago so I still can't quite believe it!

This will be our first.

Doctor said estimated due date is 14th of August although i worked it out to the 18th of August.  I am very very excited and so is my DP.

Will update my ticker tonight!!

Looking forward to getting to know you all and sharing this amazing journey.

Hi everyone,

My name is kim im 24, DH is 29. We hav a 4 nearly 5yr old. We were trying on and off for nearly 2 years, in that time i had a very early miscarriage, then gave up due to personal reasons. I went on the pill and 2 months later i somehow fell pregnant again which ended in miscarriage of twins at 6wks and 8wks. I went back on the pill for a month then we decided that we would start trying again. After afew months of 2 weekly cycles a friend suggested vitex to regulate my cycle and 12 days after i started taking them i got a +opk and ovulated the next day. 9 days later i got my BFP original.gif Ive had bloods to confirm and will be getting an early ultrasound next week.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer afew weeks ago so am supposed to hav a colposcopy and a hysteroscopy on the 17th. Ive told the hospital im now pregnant so they're guna see how progressed the cancer is and see if it'll be safe to carry to term and if not ill hav to terminate sad.gif If i get given the all clear we've decided to tell the family at christmas, i did want to leave it till the 12wk mark but im already showing... I did tell my mum and sis just so if something goes wrong ill hav afew people to talk to that have been through the same.

DH and i are very excited and cant believe the vitex worked so quickly but im trying really hard not to get my hopes up untill ive been to my appt on the 17th just incase. The wait is just killing me though. But if all goes well my first antenatal appt will be in early feb.

Hope everyone else is enjoying their early pregnancy original.gif

Ahhh how exciting leebec! Love the boori dresser in particular!

I was at the shops today looking for christmas pressies and found myself in the baby section of david jones eyeing off all the cute little things! I can't bring myself to actually buy anything yet, want to get through the first scan at least, possibly hold off till 12 weeks just to be sure. I bought a few things last time and it just broke my heaert looking at them after my MC.

HI,
I am a Mum of 1. I have a 9.5 month old who is my entire universe. I just did a pregnancy test today and we've found out we are pregnant with baby number 2. YAY!!!!! Due date from what I can work out is 27/08/2013. So they will be 18 months apart.

I am a natural mumma who loves natural parenting, baby wearing and modern cloth nappies. I loved being pregnant the first time around. Hopefully this is just as good.
