As of yesterday (11 dpo), I guess this is where I belong!

Seems pretty dark for 11dpo- hope that's normal! I am a google junkie, and I think I have read too much My mantra during my Internet inspired freak outs is my user name

I'm Lindsey and this is our first- been married for 8 years- I turn 32 tomorrow and he is 30. We decided to go off birth control in October- psyched to be here!

The due date is September 2. We swayed for a boy- but I'm so happy we are finally going to have children that aren't fur babies, the gender isn't too important! A boy would carry on his family name though....

When is everyone planning on telling people? We've planned on being ultra secretive about it, but now that I've seen the second pink line, I don't know how I'll be able to keep my mouth shut!

Can't wait to meet the rest of you!

Yay! Congrats and welcome!!! (So glad to not be the only one here )

I'm Krista. I have a son who is almost 20 months old and my EDD is September 1

As for telling others, i'm not sure yet! I want to tell my family but don't want the whole world to know for a while.. With my son we didn't tell anyone until 12 weeks. I don't want to wait that long this time!

Welcome and Congrats.

I hope you have a H&H 9 months!!!

As for telling people it is up to you. Some people wait until they get out of the first trimester, but that is hard to do.

Congrats!! First babies are sooo exciting!

With my first I told people when I thought I was around 10wks, but was really 6wks.. with my second I told my family around 9wks, his family around 11-12wks. Last pg I lost at 6wks, but wasn't planning to tell until after 12wks. If I am pg this time I'll wait until after 12wks as well.

Hi Lindsey!

DH and I don't plan on telling until... Well, we're not exactly in agreement A few very close friends get to know right away. I want to tell once we get good beta #s. He wants to tell once we see a heartbeat. We'll see what happens...

Your line IS dark for 11dpo. I'm a Google queen too, and I like to shout and point "TWINS!" at people, so of course that's what's happening in my mind I can't wait to get to know you better over the next NINE MONTHS!!

With us on earth for five short days, with us in our hearts forever.
(Thank you Natasha for this beautiful graphic of Andrew, and to the ladies of the Nov 10 PR who help me in carrying on his memory.)

Welcome! We were on the ttc board together. Your test looks great. I can't compare. I took ICs that are lighter and I'm 11 dpo but it's the only test I've taken and its a lot darker than yesterday. H&H 9 months!!

I will end up waiting until we're out of the first tri. Just my preference. Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months! Those are some strong lines for 11 dpo. Grats!

Congrats! Your test DOES look great!!

We are not in agreement of when to share the news either!! I am thinking we will wait at least a few weeks. With my first, I was a teenager and I told my mom the day after I had a positive HPT. So we will see what happens!!

I look forward to our journey together!!

Thanks for the replies everyone! Christmas kept me pretty busy so I haven't been here for a few days.

So much for our intentions of keeping this secret! One person figured it out when I turned down wine on my birthday- then we just ended up telling the whole family

Hope the rest of you trying to wait to share are better at keeping a secret than me and my DH!

Oh, and twins would be awesome- I think!
