Introduce yourself here!
Hi fellow August 2017 mammas!

I figured we should have a thread to introduce ourselves!

Start with your due date!
Then tell us about
- your family (Hubby? Kids? Solo? Etc.)
- where you're from (no addresses please!!)
- how long you've been ttc (if at all!)
- your background
- your interests, hobbies, work, etc!

I figure if we're going to be supporting each other through this ride, then we should have a way to wave and say here I am!

Looking forward to getting to know you ladies over the next several months!

Hi!

I'm due August 10th according to cycle dates, but I believe I may be further along according to my ovulation.


I'm newly wed (August!) to a fantastically Christian and geeky husband.
I have 3 children from 2 previous relationships. My oldest is from a teen fling. 2 boys (13 & 8) and a girl (6.5 <- "because the 1/2 year counts mom!")

I'm from Saskatchewan, Canada.

DH and I have been TTC since January. We've experienced 5 losses together. This is pregnancy #6 for us! Praying for a sticky baby!

I have endometriosis, low progesterone, lower immune system, ADHD, and PTSD / anxiety.
In my reproductive life I've had 12 previous pregnancies, only resulting in 3 children.

I'm on progesterone to try and help maintain this pregnancy.

I'll post my interests and stuff later.

Hello!

Due somewhere around 8/11-8/18. According to LMP I am due the 11th, though  [according to an ovulation test] I had an LH surge on thanksgiving. (Definitely something to be thankful for!) So I'm not really sure which is more accurate. I've been testing positive for 7 days now. Started very faint, and have gotten progressively more bold. Now [20+ positives later] I have my nice bright and shiny BFP! (First one ever, so I'm pretty stoked!)

9 months married. 3/10/15 <3
Have been "trying" (more or less stopped being careful) since our wedding night. Only in October did I start taking a fertility supplement and began really paying attention... November started ovulation testing, got a positive LH surge my 6th test... and here we are!!

Ready to get this show on the road!

Congratulations to all Mommies!

My EDD according to my LMP is the 15th August 2017 making me 4+6!

I'm 23 years old and live in Queensland, Australia. I work part time as a Pharmacy Assistant/Dispensary Technician and have been in the field for 5.5 years. My now husband and I have a beautiful 17 month old son together, which took us 12 months to conceive, and I'm now pregnant with baby #2 who took 6 months to conceive.
Our son, Oakley, was conceived and born out of wedlock and we then got married 2.5 months after he was born (everything was planned years prior (TTC & the wedding)) so my husband and I have been together for 6 years this new year.

I look forward to being on the crazy rollercoaster of motherhood again with all the mama's-to-be and getting to know you all and your stories/experiences while going through this journey together!

Hi everyone
Due Date is Aug 24th
Husband and I have been married since Aug 2015, and live in Chilliwack BC. We have been trying for a baby since Jan 2013. This is my 3rd time being pregnant with 2 miscarriages. This year found out my rubes were fully blocked so we just did IVF. I had the transfer on December 5th and I got a BFP on the 12th!!!! So excited but nervous at the time.

Welcome! Glad you can join us!

I think you're in the same neighborhood as my SIL. ;)
We will be telling family over Christmas/New Year holidays, so she doesn't know about this baby yet.

Hello Ladies! I'm a 30yo SAHM to three little ones. We have a 9yo son and two toddlers, 2.5y and 1.5y, born 10mo apart. This will be our 4th. My husband and I have been married 3 years and his about to start his medical residency in psychiatry. We live in New Orleans, La & my husband physician training  will most likely require us to move out of state mid pregnancy. This has me a bit anxious as I will need to find two providers in two separate states to cover my care.

We were planning to TTC starting next month so I guess I got a little lax in my fertility tracking. Lol After having our Irish twins we weren't in a huge rush since they're quite the handful, but we definitely wanted more children, so off we go on another fun pregnancy adventure! Congrats everyone.

Welcome!

Depression is hard, especially post-partum. I had peri-natal and post-partum.

I agree with no judgements, but I  want to caution that this forum is not private. If anyone needs to speak privately, don't hesitate to ask for help and I'm sure many fellow mamas will respond + let you know how to get in touch with them more privately to help you through the tough stuff.

Hi.

My due date is Aug 19th. We had been trying for about 5 months. Thankfully it didn't take as long as my first. That took a year and a half. My DD will turn 2 a month before my EDD. So far she doesn't really understand that I'm pregnant, but we tell her there is baby and to be careful.

I have been married for 4 years and  I am a SAHM. We haven't announced yet but I'm really excited about the picture announcement we are going to do. It will be of DD holding the ultrasound with a big sister t-shirt on. ❤️
