Hi and Congrats Everyone!

I thought it might be a good idea for everyone to introduce themselves briefly and give their due dates - we will hopefully be spending 9 months together so lets get to know each other a bit.

I am 42 and have a 2 year old son (a graduate of the Sept 2010 forum).  I met my husband later in life (at 39) so having children came pretty late for me.  I always wanted children and was beyond thrilled that I was able to conceive my son quickly.  This one took much longer but again I am over the moon that I finally got that BFP - I was really beginning to doubt that it would happen.  Now if I can only stop worrying- I find that I am worrying more this time around, largely because of my age. I am due Oct 12th.

I am 26 and have a 14 month old daughter (Dec 2011 group). After finally getting my periods back after breast feeding my daughter, my husband and I got lucky on our first try! I'm very nervous as haven't got any symptoms (but didn't really have any with my daughter either).  I should be due 14 Oct!

I'm 5 weeks 4 days pregnant and so excited!  We had been trying since january 2012.  This will be our first time expecting.  I haven't told my husband yet, I'm waiting until Valentines day to break the news!  It's so hard keeping it secret!

Welcome everyone.  I have to say I am impressed with those of you who are managing to keep things hush hush to surprise your husbands - you have way more will power than me!!

Tomorrow I will compile a list of everyone's names and due dates - and then we can add gender as we find out!

I am on the fence about finding out - but I most likely will.  I plan to do the blood genetic testing at 10 weeks and that also tells you gender if you want to know.

Hi everyone.
I am almost 28, am in my 6th week and I also have a son who turns 4 in April. We are expecting his sibling to arrive on Oct 11, but am waiting for an ultrasound soon as my doctor believes my date could be off by 6 weeks. Possible breakthrough bleeding in Jan, that I assumed was a period, may alter my EDD... so I may actually end up joining the Aug group instead with a due date of Aug 24.
I feel I am most likely correct with the Oct date as I recognized my first pregnancy at 5 1/2 weeks, and recognized this one at 4 1/2 weeks... I find it hard to believe that I hadn't noticed until 10 1/2 weeks, but I don't have morning sickness like I did with my son (vomiting/nausea were constant with my first. Threw up religiously from before I knew I was pregnant right up until the end of my Emerg C-section)

Hi I'm 32 and have a 2 daughters 12 and 6 so this is number 3. We were kind of ttc for 4 years with nothing happening so this BFP is a bit of a shock.  We are originally from UK but moved to Germany last July. I don't speak any German so I'm pretty nervous how everything with doctors works here. I haven't been to a doctor yet but from my LMP I should be due October 16th.

Hello all!  I'm 33 and have a little boy who will be 2 in April.  I am pregnant with our 2nd and due Oct. 24th from my calculations.  I am not sure how accurate that is since I haven't yet been to the Dr.  My son was conceived via IVF and this time I conceived naturally!!!  Completely shocked but very nervous as to what is to come.  Just praying that I have a sticky BFP!!

Hello all you preggo mama's! My name is Dayna. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 6 years.We just found out that we were exspecting our 2nd baby and we are super excited. We have lost 3 babies due to miscarriage(low progesterone levels & blood clotting disorder) and we were blessed with our perfect baby boy on april 4th 2012. So this little one was definetly not planned, but we are still very excited. We just didn't exspect to get pregnant this soon. According to my last period I am 6 weeks along, but our ER visit today confirmed that I am only 5 weeks. I had some very light spotting when I wiped, but thank goodness it is gone now. We were only able to see a gestation sack and yolk sack, still to soon to see fetal pole. I look foward to geting to know you ladies over the next 9 months. Congrats to you all and god bless :)

Hi everyone! I am 28 years old, happily married to a wonderful supportive man. We found out that I am pregnant about a week ago. This will be my third pregnancy, and I am a little scared because with my previous ones I misscarried at around 10 weeks.
Already had a scare with this pregnancy, and my dr has been doing bloodwork every 3-4 days to moniter my hormones. She told me yesterday via email that my hormones are looking great! And I am starting to have some symptoms (breast tenderness and mild nausea).
Not sure exactly what my baby's due date will be yet, but guessing between the 16th and the 22nd.
Keeping positive and looking forward to October.

I'm 25 years old.  My husband and I got married September 30th, 2012.  I have an almost 4 year old daughter (from a previous relationship) and am now 6 weeks pregnant.  I'm a little nervous about trying to keep up with two of them, particularly when out and about.  My 3 year old is a handful already very sassy and doesn't listen much to anything I tell her to do.  Shes a brilliant little girl, just resting her boundaries I guess.  I'm told this if common for children her age, but I'm hoping she leaves this phase and is more compliant before the baby comes, but I'm not holding my breath lol.  I'm excited to be having another child, hoping for a boy this time.  I'm due October 18th.  Monday is my first doctor appointment.  
I'm a little concerned about this pregnancy because in October 2010 I had a cone LEEP biopsy procedure done on my cervix.  I'm worried if my cervix will be able to support the baby until full term.  I have been looking up a lot of information online and have found that a lot of women who have had this procedure have complications with pregnancy from miscarriages, to bedrest  to needing to have their cervix stitched closed until close to their due-date, and some women even had preterm labor.  So I'm a bit anxious.  My appointment is in 2 days and I'll be discussing the possible issues with her, God-willing.  
It's great to have these forums, and o hope all of our babies are born happy and healthy :)

Hey everyone, I'm 31 and am expecting my 5th.  I'm due Oct 3 rd.  I'm a bit nervous this time because my last pregnancy I delivered conjoined twins that didn't survive.  I know there was nothingi did to cause it, but I feel like everything I do this time has some profound effect.  Not to mention my 6 yr old daghter had puinworms last month right before I found out and we all took the worm medicine.  And this week I've had to deal with lice ony kids and me and me and I can't use any medicine for it on me.  I was stressing out this morning while I was rinsing it out of my daughters hair and it got in her eye and I was afraid of getting it in me but I had to get it out of her eye.  I can't help but worry.

Hi, my name is Mallory I'm 20 years old and I'm in the united states air force pregnant 4 weeks and 3days today. My husband is in the united states marines and we are currently seperated at two different bases. This is my first pregnancy and we both are extremely excited and happy.  Our bundle of joy is due october 31st which I think is perfect because that is a year after my husband proposed. :) anyways I'm a bit scared, being all alone and going through this by myself with no family here. The husband and I will figure something out. Nice meeting everyone :). Congrats and happy pregnancies!!

Hey!

I am expecting baby number two. I already have a little boy who is 21 months. I must be crazy doing this again so soon. But baby was planned. I have Crohns disease, so wanted to take the opportunity while I was healthy-ish. Crohns can be very unpredictable! I am currently 11 weeks and due, 05.10.13 Very impatient for scan now :-)
