Kind of taking the idea from the June - July 2006 PR. But this will be a stickie that just basically introduces all of us.

Just write a short into about you and post some photos of your LO, you and/or your family and I will have this stickied Update your post as often as you'd like

Heres the one we have in the JJ 2006 PR if you want to see.

I'm Trish, 22, wife to John who is also 22, matter of fact he's just 5 days older than me. We started dating when we were 16, sophomores in high school. We had Zach the summer before our senior year when we were 17. John dropped out of school right after he turned 18 because our advisor sucked and caused a lot of people in my senior class to have to go to summer school or repeat their senior year due to bad advising, John was one of them. We found out a month before graduation that I was pregnant with our second, Ryan. I had him right before my second semester my freshman year in college. It wasn't until after I had him that we decided to go ahead and get married since we had already started a nice size family. We got married on our third anniversay and have been married 3 years now and together for 6. We found out in January of 2008 that we were pregnant again. It was not a happy moment for us since we were in the middle of trying to get a home loan and just knew that we didn't have the money for another child. However, by the time my first appointment came around we were getting excited. We got to the office the doctor did an ultrasound he said there was something potentially wrong with the baby, but he wasn't sure what. We went through two and half weeks of heck not knowing what was going on with our baby or if it was even okay. The day I was to go in for yet another round of testing I started bleeding. The doctor cancelled the tests and had me go for a vaginal ultrasound. It showed a perfectly formed unmoving 10 week baby (I was supposed to be 12 weeks). Apparently it had slowly died over a 2 week period. It was one of the hardest moments in mine and John's life. We both decided just no more children at that point, we never wanted to go through that again.We were really really careful and actually saving up to get an IUD, however in August 2008 we found out we were pregnant again. We were extremely nervous and very upset. But other than suffering from every discomfort you get while pregnant it went perfectly. On April 22, 2009 we had our beautiful baby girl Miss Isabella Ann (Bella).

My name is Corinne (22), I'm sort of engaged (nothing official no ring yet but we talk about getting married constantly) to Rob (26). We live in a suberb, of a suberb, of Cincinnati and are currently looking to buy our first house. We have one human child named Hunter who is the light of my life and a mini-miracle after 2 miscarraiges. We had an easy pregnancy, but he ended up being born via emergency c-section ause he was a surprise breech. We also have a bunch of four legged kids. Blue and Harley are our pit bulls, Cain is our blue heeler, Gato is our persian, and April and Donatello are our ponies. This fall i will be going back to school for Cadiovascular Sonography, and by the end of the year my boyfriend is planning on buying the drive through he manages. This means our next 2 years will be tough but in the end totally worth it.

These are the 3 most important things in my life, Rob, Hunter, and Harley (i know its bad to play favorites with pets but i can't help it)


Hunter


I havent taken a good picture since Hunter was born, but heres the best of the worst lol

I am Katie (27), married to Bob (30). We met over 7 years ago and have been married for over 3 years. We live in a house in a town of 13,000 people. Closest shopping is 90 miles away. The in-laws live 60 miles away and my family lives 250 miles away. We have a Maltese dog, Emma Mae, she is 5 years old. Bob works for the State as a Heavy Equipment Mechanic and I work for a plumbing wholesaler as Accounts Receivable.

Right after we got married we wanted to start TTC. So I had my last Depo Shot the month we were married. I didn't get Aunt Flow back for almost two years. When I finally got Aunt Flow back, my cycles were really long, up to 50 days, sometimes 70. I had to use progesterone a couple times to get my cycle back. We found out we were pregnant in June 2007, and in September 2007 I had a miscarriage. We were devasatated and really wanted a baby. I did three cycles with Clomid (fertility drug). We had made an appointment to see a fertility specialist 250 miles away (the closest one). But before our second appointment to get treatment, we found out we were pregnant. We love our new addition to the family, and are going to try for #2 starting in May.

My name is Anna- married to Greg. We were married Feb 08 on a beach in St. Thomas, USVI. Had a destination wedding with about 45 of our family and friends. DH and I planned to TTC in Sept/Oct 08- I was charting my temps, and had normal cycles. I had some friends who had taken 3-6 months before they got preggo- so we started NtNP and after 1 time with no protection, we said if it happens then it happend! And 1 time DTD I was preggo!!! We were on vacation in Reno and saw the first BFP on DH's birthday!!! It was so great!!! And I'm sooo happy I was able to have the 100% natral no drug birth Ive always dreamed of!!!
A little about me- I love to travel with DH (and soon with our baby girl), love to scrapbook, love to read, and play online

Our baby at 4 wks 3 days and in my moby at 4 wks:

I'm Justine (22) married to Ken(25), we've been married 2.5yrs (9/1/06), we've been together for just over 4yrs now. Our first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at around 5.5-6weeks, just barley found out and a few days later started bleeding and the doctor said it was a m/c. After the m/c I didn't get AF back, but it wasnt' unusual for me to miss af's if not on hormonal b/c. After 60days of no af my OB gave me a shot of progesterone to jump start ovulation because he said my body wasnt' ovulating, dh(then df) and I had plans to start the depo shot and I needed to have a cycle before the Ob would allow it. Instead of going in for my appt for the depo shot it turned into an appt for pregnancy. We found out around a week before my appt to get the depo shot that I was pregnant with our son Seamus. He wasn't planned but we wouldn't trade him for the world. After a complicated pregnancy he was born on July 18th, 2006 weighing 7lbs 9oz and 21in long.

After Seamus was born I had Mirena IUD put in. Dh and I planned to TTC so that our kids would be no more then 3.5yrs apart. On May 15th 2008 I had the IUD removed and was going to let my body "get back to normal" I had a "AF" from the 17th-20th and spotting on the 21st, and that was basically it for 90+ days. I had some light bleeding in July but it was only noticable on toilet paper and dh couldnt' even see it. I went to the doctor in early August to find out what was going on, and why it had been so long without AF (most I'd gone was 2mo but then AF got forced, more then once), they thought it was my thyroid so they tested it and it came back fine. The doctor chalked it up to PCOS something that has been mentioned to me lots of times but never exactly had any testing for, but thats what they call it.

I had been thinking it was odd that my boobs hurt as bad as they did when we found out about Seamus, finally on August 17th I had a gut feeling to take the Clearblue digi test I had lying around, dh and I had a precription for progesterone we were going to start me on in December and start trying to TTC then and the digi test would expire before i thought we'd get pregnant so I said o well I'm going to "waste" this test. So I took the test and thought I'd see "Not Pregnant"...turns out I was wrong and it said "Pregnant" I freaked. Come to find out when the doctors were doing their testing I was pregnant but only around 3weeks along and didn't show up on their tests.

Miss Kieran Elizabeth was born on April 8th via c-section(first one as my son was vaginal) because she was breech. She weighed 6lbs 13oz and 19½in long she was born at 38weeks 3days.

I am Melissa 27, mom to four children.. Destiny 8, Jaiden 5, Lilyan 3, and Matthew 5weeks. I got married when I was 18yrs old to the person I had been dating since I was 15. After 10yrs of mental and sexual abuse , at the age of 25 I kicked him out. I was a stay at home mom who never worked before and had no employment opportunities. 3months later I let him take my kids for a few weeks (really his mother was taking care of them) and I moved 2hrs away from my home town where I had lived my whole life, with nothing but a suitcase of my clothes. After putting my feet back on the ground (5 weeks later) working 3 jobs. I took my kids back to live with me. Almost a year ago I moved in with my two best friends (rick and thomas) and got pregnant. Matthew was born on March 23, 2009 at 5:21am after 1.5hrs of labor. Things are not going so well here right now, but I will make it through, I am strong.

I'm Jamie. I'm 26 and married to Eric, who's also 26. We met when I was 17 and he was 18. We got engaged on the day of my high school graduation in 2001, but were not married until 2005 due to Eric's enlistment in the USMC and his two deployments to Iraq. This July will mark our fourth wedding anniversary and the ninth year since we started dating.

We live in a super small town with only one stoplight and plan on moving before Connor starts school to an even smaller town - to be closer to my ILs, and to take advantage of free land they've offered us to build a home.

I work as a trucking dispatcher and Eric is a land surveyor/bridge inspector for an engineering firm. I'm off on maternity leave now, but will return to work at the end of May. Eric has completed his contract with the USMC, so thankfully, that frightening chapter of our lives is over.

Connor, who was born on April 12th of this year is our first child. It took us a little longer to conceive than we had hoped, but realistically, it was not long at all. We plan on waiting at least until Connor is one until we try for a second child. We're not sure how many kids we'd like in total. We've said if our next one is a girl, we'll probably be done, but if it's a boy, we'll keep trying until we get a girl....though four kids is our max number.

We also have two fur kids. One female tiger cat named Lilo, and a male beagle named Gunner.

My name is Becky (almost 31) and I'm married to Steve (34). We've been together since 2001 and married since 2003. We have a dorky dachshund named Sebastian and live in a suburb of Kansas City, on the Kansas side of the state line.

Wedding Pic


Sebastian, the dorky dachshund


Steve is a graphic designer and I'm a web designer/program development manager for a marketing and e-commerce company.

We started TTC #1 in May of 2005 and after 2 months we got our first BFP!! My pregnancy with Bailey was quite interesting...I was diagnosed with an irritible uterus and started having REAL contractions at 22 weeks. At 29 weeks they put me in the hospital and gave me the steroid shots for her lungs. I was on bedrest for the rest of my pregnancy and the little stinker decided to stay in for the long haul after all - I was induced 4 days before her due date. Bailey was born on March 30, 2006 weighing 7lbs 8oz via c-section after 14 hours of labor.

Bailey at 1 month


Bailey - March 2009


We wanted our kids to be at least 2 years apart and started TTC #2 in the Fall of 2007. Being ignorant, we thought since we got pregnant with Bailey so fast, it would be that easy the 2nd time - boy were we wrong. We had a miscarriage in February 2008 and it was determined that I had a progesterone deficiancy. I started taking Femura in May 2008 and we got our sticky BFP in August - 10 months after starting TTC. Those 10 months were some of the longest of my life.

My pregnancy with Camryn was alot easier...so we thought...then at 34 weeks I started having REAL contractions (deja vu!). Luckily this time I didn't need the mag sulfate, and just got the steroid shots for Camryn's lungs. The last month of my pregnancy was quite miserable - I was 4cm dilated for 3 weeks and just moving was very painful. My midwife was worried that Camryn was approaching 9lbs, so she set my induction date for 4-16-09. Camryn had other plans though - my water broke on 4-14-09 and Camryn was born at 3am on 4-15-09 via a successful VBAC - only 50 minutes of pushing too!! She was 7lbs even...so much for her being a big baby!

Camryn just born!


Me and Camryn


My family is my everything! Other than that, I enjoy surfing the internet, keeping up with friends, shopping, singing, dancing, and reading.

I'm Sherri. I'm 34 and am married to Angelo who just recently turned 32. We met 9 years ago and have been together for 7 1/2 years. We live in Toronto, ON Canada and just moved into our first house at the end of January (before that we were apartment folk) but with the baby coming we wanted to be closer to his family and have more space. I have a degree in Criminology and a diploma in Creative Advertising and work in online advertising. I am on maternity leave now and will be looking for a new job when my mat leave is up next year as I just found out 2 days ago that my employer (Yahoo) is downsizing and my position was eliminated DH is an electrician and builds houses.

We weren't planning on trying for our first until November of 2008 but stopped using birth control in the summer of 2008 and got pregnant in the first month. We would like to try for a girl so we will likely try for one more child within the next year or two but will most likely stop after 2 children.

I'm Rachel (34) married to Joey (36) and we live in Southern California. We met 12 years ago and dated for a few years before getting married mainly because I had a DD (1 year old) and wanted to make sure that he would be a good daddy! DD dad is a shmuck and is not in her life at all. He passed my test and we got married 9 years ago. We immediately started trying for a baby but couldn't get pregnant. We went to a fertility specialist and found out that I had PCOS. We battled with treatment for a few years and got nowhere. After some soul searching we decided that we would give up on having a baby. We would be really young parents with an 18 year old. We would travel the world together at 38 and 40 years old while our DD was in school. Anyway, a few years went by and we were enjoying life. On May 21st, 2008 my MIL died suddenly. Her passing was very hard on DH and I didn't think he would get through it. On August 8th I decided that I would go buy a pregnancy test because I was late. (I was always late but I would pee on the stick and literally a day later it would start) We were going on vacation and I didn't want to be on my period. Literally I bought the test because I figured it would make my period come down. Imagine my surprise!!! Our due date was April 6th, however Jacob came into the world exactly to the day, 9 months after my MIL passed away. We totally believe that he was a gift from her!!!!

So, now I'm a SAHM with a 13 1/2 year old and a newborn. My DH is a Safety Consultant for a large insurance company. We have 2 cutie doggies and a few fish! I'm not really sure when I plan on going back to work. Prior to going out on leave I was a manager for a few car dealerships. While I loved the position, I hated the owner of the dealerships and was overly stressed. If I do go back to work, it won't be with the same company.

I enjoy writing and scrapbooking however I have had no time to do either since Jacob's arrival. My DH likes to surf, fish and go riding on our dirt bike and quads. Once Jacob is a bit older we will start going with DH on these trips!!!

That's all folks! I'm pretty boring.

Here is a pic of Jacob and I:


Here is big sister Mariah and Jacob:


and Daddy with Jacob:

I am Holly (23), married to Jeremy (25). I have been a Registered Nurse for almost 3 years, I currently work in a surgical intensive care unit. My husband is a police officer. We met and started dating in August of 2007. We found out I was pregnant shortly before our one year anniversary. We had planned on getting married in the spring, but we decided to go ahead and go for it, and we married on September 3, 2008. Jackson was definitely a surprise, but we wouldn't trade him for anything. However, we don't plan on having another child for 3-4 years. We are both still young and we want to give Jackson the attention he deserves.

I'm Katie (24) married to Steve (26). We started dating in back in 2000 while in high school and got married Sept 9, 2005. We purchased our 1st home in the spring of 2006 and lived there until I saw a home for sale in spring 2008 that I had to have (Im a Realtor, so both homes were foreclosures that I just couldnt pass up!). So we bought our current home (a "family" home) and rented out our old house. We then decided to start TTC summer of 2008 and got pregnant after only 2 cycles.

I work as a Realtor, but also as an admin assistant to the owner of the real estate company I work for. DH works in the shipping/receiving dept of a distribution company. We have 2 cats that we adore, Wrigley and Buster. DH is a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan (hence the cats name, Wrigley...), also a huge fan of the Chicago Bulls.

I am a very family oriented person - and am super close with my mom and sister. We all live within 5 minutes of each other, which we all love. My sister has 4 kids, all of which I adore and spoil!! Both my mom and sister were there for my labor/delivery and I could not have made it through that without them (DH was also there and a HUGE support). All 3 of them really carried me through the 30 hrs of labor before I had the CS.

I'm Sam (24) married to Daniel (25). When we met we fell head over heels for each other and have been blissful ever since. We were married in August 2006 after meeting in April of that year We decided that we were ready to start growing our family in April of 2008 and I got my BFP in August. My pregnancy confirmation appointment was on our second wedding anniversary

I have degrees in Anthropology and Foreign Languages. I studied French, Japanese, Greek, and Latin. But after all that I'm a SAHM. I love to learn and I have interests and hobbies in all sorts of areas, but I don't love anything enough to do it as a career. DH, on the other hand, has loved computers since he was a kid and is now a computer scientist. He works as a software engineer and does all sorts of projects on the side.

We hope to have a big family and one day soon (hopefully) we'll be moving out to the country with my parents and sister's family. It's a huge chunk of land on a creek where the family has a garden, chickens, etc. We love the simple life, as long as we have access to the internet We're both just big kids, really. We like to eat dessert first and play video games. Life is all about having a good time and never being too serious!

I am Sam (30) and DH Antonio (40). We met in the north of spain in 2000 when I was studying French and economics and he was studying medicine. I returned to the UK the following year for my final year of university, and he came to work in a nearby hospital.

We finally settled in Granada, in the south of Spain, it has about 300,000 inhabitants and with the metropolitan area its about 750,000. The mountains are 30 minutes away and the beach is 40 minutes away, its a lovely city, but hot in the summer!.
My niece María in the snow (she lives 2 hours away and had never seen snow!!)


I moved to spain in 2002 and we got married in 2008. In my hometown in England.


We had been ttc for 8 months when we finally got our bfp in July 2008. Then in April 2009 after a perfect pregnancy, baby Ana arrived.


We are so happy with our little milk monster, she is a good baby and so far everything has gone perfectly.

DH and I love travelling and I love reading, internet, swimming, films, and shopping!
I have worked as an inports/exports manager, an english teacher to children and an adult education coordinator. I hope to go back to work when Ana is about 6 months.

I am Jeriah(25) married to Bradley(27). We got engaged 3 weeks after we started dating, married a year and a half later and have been married for 6 years on May 31. I am a self-contained special education teacher and he works for the local cable company. We live outside of a really small town. We love the country. We currently have a large garden and we are building a pig pin and chicken coupe. We have two four legged dogs and one cat who showed up on our door step and refuses to leave. We had abeen married for 2 years when we decided to have children. We first got pregnant when I was a senior in college, however we lost that baby at 8 weeks.

We waited a little while longer and got preggo my first year as a teacher. Cameron will be 2 May 28. He is a very active boy who loves being out doors and riding the golf cart, 4-wheeler, and tractor. He is a handful but we knew that our family was not complete with just one child. So we decied to have another one. We became preggo again this past year and had Mason on April 21. He is now one month old. He is a wonderful baby boy who seems to share a lot of traits with his older brother. We always thought we would be done with two children however since we have two boys we are going to try one more time, in a few years, for a girl. I would love to post a picture of my family but for some reason I have be unable to post pictures on this site. If you would like to see a picture just check out my myspace or facebook page.
