Hi Ladies, just thought I'd pop in...wondered if Marlz, Sharlers and Shell are still here?

I'm cautiously hopeful that I'm making it out of the first trimester with a healthy bean. I've been over on the PAL board, not confident enough to visit my DDC yet.

My first ultrasound was on May 16th and we saw a little heart beating away. My due date determined to be Christmas Day!!

Now that I'm approaching the 12 week mark, I'm starting to really wonder if we're having a 3rd boy or embarking on a new journey with a little pink. My gut for the first few weeks screamed Girl, but now I'm not so sure. I kinda just have that "boy" kind of feeling again. My oldest son is very hopeful he's having a sister, and you all know "hubshope" comes from the fact my husband desperately wants a girl. I didn't, then I did...then it took over a year to conceive this bean (and one loss and one chemical), so now I just want a baby to hold come December.

I can see positives (clothes shopping and a whole new experience) to a girl, but I also see how easy and "normal" it will feel/be to have another boy.

I will try and pop over every so often and update, and certainly will if we find out in July what we're having (I'm still on the fence if I want to know or be surprised, since this is my last chance at a "green" baby).

For those who don't know me, I had swayed pink when I first started TTC...but gave it up. By the time this baby was conceived we'd stopped swaying about 7 months prior to conception. I do know we DTD about 3-4 days before ovulation, but the same was true with my second son.

Best of luck to all of you swaying!!!

Thanks, Shalers! I'm in my 13th week and everything seems to be going along as it should. Every day that passes I grow more and more anxious to get to feel fetal movement, and ultimately hold this precious Bean. I'm already totally in love. I'm officially 100% in the "blue or pink, I don't care I just want a full-term, healthy baby to hold" club! hahaha

How have your been Sharlers?

Oh Sharlers, I thought you were expecting! I'm so sorry!!! I hope the end of this 2ww has a sticky BFP for you!!!!! I'll be thinking of you!!!

I have an appointment on July 6th and they'll schedule my next scan for about two weeks out from there. I had a scan at 8 weeks and again at 11 weeks (due to spotting and cramping) and seeing my Bean was just amazing! I'm anxious to get another peak!

Shell! Hi!!! I wondered if you were still around! How are you? I'm still undecided if I'm finding out what we're having at our scan. One day I want to, the next day I want a surprise baby.

Sharlers, I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I have been there, as most of you know. It is so hard to deal with. ((BIG HUGS)) Please keep me posted on your 2WW...I am going to be praying very hard for you for a very sticky Bean!

Oh Shar, I'm so sorry! I was praying for you that you'd get a sticky Bean. Don't lose hope. It took 20 months from my loss month to end up with a sticky little bean (we didn't try the first 3 months after our loss though)...and there were a few months in the first year that we "skipped" a month. Total "hard" tries were about 12 or 13 months...end we got this Bean on a month we weren't really trying (not charting or using OPK's, just kind of winging it).

I'm praying so hard for you that you get a sticky BFP soon!!!!!!

You know, it used to infuriate me when people would say, "You're just trying too hard. The minute you don't you'll get pregnant." But I never tried with my two boys...and then this Bean came along in the one month we weren't really trying...as a matter of fact, I was avoiding getting pregnant in April because of fear of a Christmas baby. hahaha God taught me a lesson about who is in charge...my due date is 12/25. Also, the ONLY time we BD'd in april was the morning of our anniversary...almost 4 days before ovulation was supposed to happen so we never thought we'd get pregnant. Of course we were over the moon to get our BFP.

Your STICKY BFP is coming...I know it. I'll keep you in my prayers daily.

I'm doing well. 16 weeks tomorrow and finally feeling more confident in the pregnancy. Our anatomy scan is set for the morning of August 1st. I haven't decided yet if I want to know the gender, but my husband is finding out either way. lol If I decide to find out, I'll be sure to update you guys!

Awww, that's sweet of you to say. You know, I was trying for a girl...then gave up the sway just to be able to have another...but still hoped for pink. Since my BFP and the closer I get to finding out, I kinda am hoping for a boy. How odd is that? I mean, I'll be THRILLED and shocked to have a girl...don't get me wrong. But I'm a little afraid of the unknown. SO, not that I don't want a girl, just that my comfort zone is boy and I'm a little nervous. Does that make any sense?

They called yesterday and my ob is out on the 1st...so they moved my ultrasound to July 25th, two weeks from yesterday. Yikes! Nervous and excited. I'm worried a little too, about babies health...just with the mis, then the chemical, then how long it took...makes me nervous. But it's in God's hands.

You should be CD11 today! I hope this is the month!!!! Fingers are crossed and sending you sticky baby dust!! I got SO SICK of temping and peeing on sticks too. And I found the OPK's very confusing and hard to read that just was even that much more frustrating. Let's hope this is the last month you have to deal with it! Sending up lots of sticky baby prayers!!!!

What kind of test? FRER? I had what I thought was just an evap line with a FRER...took three days but it turned dark. I so hope this is a positive for you!!!!!!!!!

We had our scan today. The baby looks great...everything in the right place and measuring perfect. AND, we're on TEAM PINK!

I'm in shock...but excited. My husband, as you can imagine, is beyond thrilled to have his dream come true! I just can't believe I'm going to have a baby girl! Can't wait to spoil her!

Oh Shalers, that makes me so sad for you. I was hoping with my shocking good news it meant you'd also get fantastic good news!

I am over the moon...I've done some pink shopping but not a whole ton yet because we're getting ready to leave on vacation. But when we get home...it's GAME ON!!!!!
