When was your last period before finding out you were pregnant? No idea. It was all jacked up after months and months of fertility meds.

What day did you find out you were expecting? May 21

Did you have any symptoms or reasons that made you test? If so, what were they? That was the date my RE scheduled blood test following IVF.

Did you think it was going to be a positive test? Yup.

How did you feel when you found out? Disbelief ... after so long, I didn't think it was possible.

How did you tell your DH/SO? I put a bun in our oven for him to discover when he got home from work.

What was your due date? January 28

What did you crave through out your pregnancies? Chocolate

Were you right on what you thought the gender was? Yep!

What other names did you have chosen for baby? Sebastian and one other which I can't remember

How did you feel through out pregnancy? Awesome. I had a great pregnancy. Could have done without the heartburn though!

Any other special details you want to add about the time you found out? It was a miracle. After trying for 3.5 years, struggling with my infertility, and my RE convinced we couldn't conceive unless we used donor eggs...rough fertility treatments which at one point meant up to 8 injections a day...a failed IVF-turned-IUI ... We are so blessed.

When was your last period before finding out you were pregnant? DS1 it was March 11th, 2010 and DS2 was April 7th, 2012

What day did you find out you were expecting? DS1 was around April 23rd and DS2 was around May 2nd or 3rd.

Did you have any symptoms or reasons that made you test? If so, what were they? DS1 I was late but my periods were so irregular that I kept waiting and waiting. I was nauseous on and off, not real sick just more so annoying and I remember going to the store and getting a ton of random things to eat because I couldn't figure out what I wanted and my boobs had gotten a tad bigger. I started putting all those things together and figured I'd better test to make sure. DS2 I didn't have any symptoms except my boobs were a bit tender. We were trying so I tested at 8dpo.

Did you think it was going to be a positive test? DS1 I thought it might've been but kept telling myself no. DS2 I thought it would be.

How did you feel when you found out? DS1 I was scared to death, nervous and upset. DS2 I was happy, excited and nervous!

How did you tell your DH/SO? With DS1 I had told DH(then BF) that I thought I might test just to be sure. When it came up positive I called him crying and told him the test I was going to take said I was pregnant. DS2 I showed him the pee stick when he came in from work

What was your due date? DS1 was Dec 16th, 2010 and DS2 was Jan 12th 2013

What did you crave through out your pregnancies? DS1 it was chocolate milk and biscuits and gravy. In the beginning I craved whoppers. DS2 in the beginning I wanted sour straws and through out the rest of the pregnancy I would crave one thing for a day then crave another so not one specific thing.

Were you right on what you thought the gender was? DS1 I was but I thought for sure DS2 was going to be a girl.

What other names did you have chosen for baby? DS1 there was no other name. We knew it would be Sawyer if he was a boy. DS2 we didn't have any idea what we was naming him until the day we came home from the hospital. Some that had been at the top of the list was Lucas, Seamus and another I can't remember. Marshall wasn't even on our list we chose it last minute lol

How did you feel through out pregnancy? DS1 I was sick a bit from wks 7-10 then after that I felt great. DS2 I was extremely tired the whole pregnancy, achy and just miserable from about half way through and sick from wks 6-15 and then on and off throughout the rest of the pregnancy. I had very few days that I felt great.

Any other special details you want to add about the time you found out? Ds1 was a unplanned teen pregnancy (I was 17) and DS2 was a rainbow baby

When was your last period before finding out you were pregnant? No idea, lol. I wasn't keeping up with it which is why I didn't know I was pregnant right away.

What day did you find out you were expecting? I think I tested on May 29th.

Did you have any symptoms or reasons that made you test? If so, what were they? Yes. I was nauseous and my boobs hurt. Also AF had been MIA for quite some time.

Did you think it was going to be a positive test? I knew without a doubt it would be.

How did you feel when you found out? I cried. Not happy tears, lol.

How did you tell your DH/SO? This was something that I still find extremely cool. I was SO upset and worried about telling him. I was afraid he would be really unhappy about it. So the day I tested (I think it was a Tuesday) I prayed all day that somehow God would make it a little easier for me to tell him. Well, Wed. morning hubby woke up and said, I had the craziest dream last night. And I just knew what he was going to say. He said he had dreamed that our daughter wasn't the baby anymore and that we were going to have another little one. I couldn't believe it! I still didn't tell him I had tested already, but I did tell him that I thought his dream might be right on and that we should probably get a test to see.

What was your due date? Jan 15

What did you crave through out your pregnancies? Anything sour

Were you right on what you thought the gender was? Nah. I never knew.

What other names did you have chosen for baby? For Lincoln we liked - Sebastian, Felix, Liam

How did you feel through out pregnancy? Sick in the beginning, and excruciatingly exhausted, but it improved and I felt pretty good throughout.

Any other special details you want to add about the time you found out? Can't imagine life without this precious little surprise in it

When was your last period before finding out you were pregnant? Mid-April

What day did you find out you were expecting? Late May

Did you have any symptoms or reasons that made you test? If so, what were they? I felt a little sick and my breasts hurt.

Did you think it was going to be a positive test? Yes.

How did you feel when you found out? Detached. We had a loss in March, so it took me a while to absorb being pregnant again so quickly.

How did you tell your DH/SO? I think I just told him. He didn't know I was testing that day.

What was your due date? Jan 29

What did you crave through out your pregnancies? Chips. Especially the ketchup flavored and blt flavored Lays. I don't eat chips, so that was weird.

Were you right on what you thought the gender was? We didn't have a definite guess.

What other names did you have chosen for baby? Girl names, mostly.

How did you feel through out pregnancy? Pretty rotten. I was fairly sick and kept having problems, even though I was determined to have one of those yoga-walking-unaffected pregnancies. I was wrong, you don't exactly get to pick the kind of pregnancy you're going to have.

Any other special details you want to add about the time you found out? I'd do it all 100 more times to get this one baby. The difficulty conceiving, our loss, the problems with the pregnancy, the early delivery, all of it. If it meant that this one little person would be part of our family.

Did you think it was going to be a positive test? both times, no

How did you feel when you found out? First time was going to be my first child, so I was excited, nervous. The second time I was in total disbelief! It wasnt as exciting since I had BTDT, but was still pretty thrilling.

How did you tell your DH/SO? The first time, I told him as soon as he walked in the door from work. The second time, I took him out to lunch with Kylie and told him we were having another baby.

What was your due date? Kylie- 3/22/10 (born on her due date) Lucy- 1/7/13 or 1/18/13 depending who you asked. She was born 12/7/12

What did you crave through out your pregnancies? Kylie- sweets. Poptarts. Lemon. Lucy- rhubarb

What other names did you have chosen for baby? Kylie could have been Rylee, Hailey, or Paige. Lucy could have been Isabelle, Madison, or Annabelle.

How did you feel through out pregnancy? Pretty good both times. Just tired often. And of course my water broke at 33 weeks with Lucy, so that was scary.

When was your last period before finding out you were pregnant? March 20th (I believe.. have it written down somewhere. I was very regular in keeping track)

What day did you find out you were expecting? April 23rd, it was a Monday and my period wasn't due till that Friday

Did you have any symptoms or reasons that made you test? If so, what were they? A dream actually. The symptoms kicked in shortly after seeing that BFP

Did you think it was going to be a positive test? No! I never got results from ovulation strips so I never knew when I was "ready"

How did you feel when you found out? Shocked! Totally surprised and caught off guard. But SO excited/

How did you tell your DH/SO? I told him about my dream them showed him the test. He thought I should retest because the line was light but I took a digi... couldn't question that!

What was your due date? Jan 4th

What did you crave through out your pregnancies? Nothing really. I ate a lot of Subway though.

Were you right on what you thought the gender was? Yes! I asked my father in my prayers to show me what I was having and a day or 2 later I had a dream I was having a boy.

What other names did you have chosen for baby? Evan was VERY close to being called Tristian James. I tried it out for a few days and I just never could like it. We wanted an A or T name but going through the book I landed on E's and really liked Evan. If he would've been a girl he would've been Ariel Anna.

How did you feel through out pregnancy? Pretty good. Never got sick but I was nauseous. I got achy near 3rd trimester. I never had any swelling problems but boy did my feet get tired quickly.

Any other special details you want to add about the time you found out? I told my best friends before my husband! I told my girlfriends by texting them and asking what they thought of a Halloween babyshower, totally forgetting to attach the picture of the positive test! DH and I were just starting to work things out and I was in such shock that I kept that surprise away from him all day!!

This was a fantastic idea Kelsey

When was your last period before finding out you were pregnant?
It was around Easter, I think April 7th or 8th 2012

What day did you find out you were expecting?
Friday May 4th 2012

Did you have any symptoms or reasons that made you test? If so, what were they?
We were trying to conceive, but honestly I thought I missed my mark that month. It was the only month I didn't really symptom spot

Did you think it was going to be a positive test?
I was hoping so!

How did you feel when you found out?
I couldn't believe I was seeing two lines and that it was really happening. But, at the same time, I felt fear and anxiety because the last time I saw two lines it ended up being chemical and that was crushing. I wanted to jump and scream with joy, but I also felt more cautious this time around.

How did you tell your DH/SO?
I wrote on this little board in our bathroom that I loved him today because he was going to be an awesome dad

What was your due date?
1/13/13

What did you crave through out your pregnancies?
Everything bagels and chocolate frosties during the first trimester and soft pretzels with salt during the entire birth.

Were you right on what you thought the gender was?
I sort of thought it was a girl, but I didn't want to get my hopes up.

What other names did you have chosen for baby?
I SO wanted to name her Elizabeth like "Elizabeth Bennet" and call her "Betsy". I was so upset when my husband hated the name. We were thinking Addison for awhile, but we determined it was a bit too popular for us.

How did you feel through out pregnancy?
First pregnancy like crap, start of the 2nd trimester I had the WORST sinus headaches ever and I remember thinking "aren't I supposed to feel good now?" Then I went through a few weeks of feeling wonderful, but most of the time I had heartburn and acid reflux. Not that fun lol

Any other special details you want to add about the time you found out?
I found out on a very important date to women in my family, which I took as a cosmic sign that maybe it would just end up being a "she"
