@Running Elley:  Great idea for a thread! I can’t believe you are so far along and having a boy!!!

Brief TTC Background Refresher: Two previous pregnancies, witout any difficulties conceiving. And then a tough go around this itme, including one miscarriage.

First child?: Nope, number 3!

How far along/EDD: 9w2d/ Christmas Eve!

Gender: We don’t know yet, but we will find out.

Milestones: We had one good US after a little bleeding scare and baby looked good with a strong HB.

Struggles: Consant nausea, migraines, food adversions. The past couple weeks have been pretty tough with a stomach bug thrown in there, but I just try to keep my eye on the prize:)

What are you most fearful/concerned about: I go in this week for my first OB appointment, I just pray there is still a heartbeat.

How long TTC: 13 months 

Brief TTC Background:  Endometriosis – two blocked tubes for the first 9 months of TTC. My laparoscopic HSG cleared one tube. Otherwise all is normal. 

First child? Yep!

How far along/EDD: 14 DPO/4 weeks today. EDD is January 28. 

Gender: ???  But we will find out. 

Milestones:  I made it here with no spotting (usually starts at 12 DPO) and my tests are getting darker every day. 

Struggles:  *Insanely* sore breasts, I am already eating for two, and I gained ten pounds of bloat over the last couple of days. 

What are you most fearful/concerned about:  An ectopic pregnancy (another lovely endo side benefit). I had a really low beta at 10 DPO, so was very worried that it was not rising appropriately. But – like I said above – my HPTs are getting substantially darker by the day and I am not having an ectopic symptoms. U/S is next week to rule that out.

The 6 Months+ thread started like right after I got pregnant, so I’m not coming as a graduate of that thread, but I would have been had we not gotten pregnant when we did.

How long TTC: 13 months from the time we started trying. 

Brief TTC Background Refresher: Started TTC on our honeymoon in October 2010. Chemical pregnancy in March 2011 (clear positive on two different brands of HPTs, tested one day before and day of expected period, period arrived one day late); miscarriage at approximately 7 weeks in September of 2011. No known medical problems. We had just started talking about getting tested when I got pregnant the last time in November 2011. 

First child?: Yes.

How far along/EDD:  28w3d/August 10 Holy crap that’s not so far away!

Gender: Team Green! I’m terrified of being disappointed, but I want/am convinced this baby is a girl. 

Milestones: Entering the third trimester, lots and lots of movement, being able to see my stomach move and roll. I have my GD test this week. Tomorrow is 200 days pregnant, and I’m well under 100 days left now. 

Struggles: Physically I’m getting uncomfortable. I’m peeing all the time. Sometimes literally every few moments. I’ll pee before bed, and then get up 5 minutes later and pee again. I feel like an air mattress that’s being deflated…just when you think you’ve got all the air out, you can go back and deflate it more. My back hurts all the time, and I get uncomfortable after a few minutes in any position (stitting, standing, laying, doesn’t matter). We’re driving to NC for a family beach trip at the end of June, and I’m dreading being in the car so long, even with our scheduled breaks. 

What are you most fearful/concerned about: Preterm labor. I breath a sigh of relief with every day that passes, because we’re a day closer to reaching full-term. One of our nephews was born at 30 weeks, and he’s a perfectly healthy 8 year old, so I know our odds improve every day, but I still breath a sigh of relief every night. Lately my fears have been turning towards something going wrong at the delivery. Also, this dumb SCH that I still have (at least, as of my 20 week ultrasound). I know at this point it’s likely it’s been reabsorbed, or is really too small to cause any damage, but I still worry that it’s going to cause problems.

Awwww it’s like a reunion!!!  You girls all have such a special place in my heart!

How long TTC: 12 cycles

Brief TTC Background Refresher:  I had regular spotting at 8-9dpo, but all tests came back normal and was diagnosed with “unexplained infertility.”  Started Clomid to make ovulation stronger.  Clomid + IUI = BFN.  The next month – Clomid + trip to Paris instead of the IUI = BFP and a little baguette in the oven!

First child?: Yes.

How far along/EDD: 17w 1d, due October 28

Gender: Team Green!

Milestones: Started to feel movement last week!  Almost a better feeling than the BFP!

Struggles: Physically – none.  Mentally – Ive been nervous since day 1 about my lack of physical symptoms and struggles!  

What are you most fearful/concerned about: Of course it’s anything bad happening to my precious baguette.  I just can’t wait until heshe is safely in my arms this fall!
