Howdy! I'm really excited to be here and nervous all at the same time. I don't want to jinx myself by proclaiming pregnancy so early...but I need someone to talk to about it, or I will BURST! So I figured this was the place to go, since you are all going through the same thing, at the same time!
My "tentative" due date is June 2nd. I was trying for about 6 months, and this will be baby #4 for me. I know, I am crazy...but my kids will be 8, 6, and 2 when this baby is born and the two oldest are BIG helpers- plus I didn't want my little girl to be all alone, since her big brothers will have graduated from High School before she even starts!!! I come from a family of 5 kids, and LOVE being one big happy family
hmmm...what else...oh, DETAILS!!!
I have had 3 miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy (all while trying to conceive baby #3, so I never expected to get pregnant this fast, and you can see why I am nervous to believe it)
I took a test on Tuesday that was negative...but I took it in the bathroom while volunteering at my kids school (trying to keep it a surprise for DH) and I didn't really have a chance to sit and wait very long before just tossing it- just assumed another month of negative!
When my period didn't start on Wed I took another test Thursday morning and got a FAINT FAINT positive-- someone else just posted a picture that she said her DH didn't believe...SAME STORY HERE! He gets even more nervous about believing it than me, LOL So I called the doc and got bloodwork done on Thursday Afternoon, but still haven't heard back because we were camping.
soooo tonight I went and bought another test- took it at night, after only an hour or so of not peeing-- I figured what the heck, if shows up under these circumstances its GOT to be real. And sure enough it was DARKER than the CONTROL line! So I am super excited!
Anyway glad to be here, I have been through this 3 times, but every single time I feel overwhelmed by everything you are supposed to know and remember~!
Soooo, anyone else due June 2nd? Hopefully I am here to stay!!!
Thanks for the welcome guys! Flutterbug, you are going to be fine with 3 kids I think the transition to 2 kids was much more difficult for me than going to 3 kids. But its FOUR that really kinda freaks me out I am super laid back though, so it helps
Welcome and congratulations!! I'll definitely be praying for a happy and healthy pregnancy for you! I'm due around June 2. I'm guessing June 3 based off my LMP, but my cycles are never consistent and can range from 22 days to 31 days so who knows!
I've always heard that transitioning from 2 to 3 is easier than 1 to 2. We'll see if that's true for us!
