My due date should be December 8th. 8 weeks along. I live in Miami.
Thank you for the uplifting words...pregnant today! I found out Sunday I was pregnant and then started spotting on Monday. However, had my second HCG today and it doubled...I hope that keeps up. My husband wonders why I am not excited...I am scared! However, I appreciate the words..I am pregnant today and I am going to be happy about it!
I am also due in December 2009; December 18th is my EDD. I had my first brief ultrasound Thursday (May 7th) and my doctor figured the due date from the measurements he took then. Hubby and I are both very excited, this is our first baby; we were both elated when we got to hear the heartbeat and see the baby when my doctor did a brief ultrasound to make sure everything looked healthy and we had a heartbeat since they could not find the heartbeat on the handheld thing. I am very fortunate in the ultrasound department, I found a clinic that is training nurses to do sonograms on women that are 6-28 pregnant so they are doing them for free, so I get a complete ultrasound this coming Friday and then I am scheduled for one at my doctor's office on May 28th by the actual US tech instead of my doctor.
I'm also due around Dec 8th. First pregnancy and all. Everything has been going kind of smoothly till now, and I'm beginning to experience the little discomforts here and there. Nothing serious though.
I'm not from the US but hope to be in touch with all of you pregnancy mates. Good luck to all with your pregnancies
Hello! Congrats to everyone! I am 27 and 8 weeks pregnant with my first. I am due on Dec. 24!! I am very excited but also nervous. I don't know what to expect and what is normal. I was lucky enough to have an early ultra sound last week and heard my babies heartbeat! Everything is looking good. I go back in another 4 weeks for a better picture. I have been feeling very queasy the last week and a half, but I'm just trying to take it day by day. I look forward to sharing this amazing journey for the next 7 1/2 months!
Hey everyone - I don't have official due date from doc yet, but I think it will be Dec. 31 or Jan. 1. I'm freaking out!! This was a big surprise! I'm 37 and have a 5 year old girl. We thought our family was complete, and I just learned a day after running a half marathon that I'm pregnant! I've had a positive blood test at the doc's office, but have to wait until May 22 for an ultrasound. Due to my age, and some past health issues, I'm a little nervous, so I don't think I'm going to believe it until I hear the heartbeat. Sorry I'm going on and on, we haven't told anyone yet, so I am now spilling it all out Congrats to everyone else!
How exciting, hm.owen! I know all about pregnancy surprises.... I had my first at 18 - very unexpected... We planned a second 4.5 years later and I thought the family was full and complete since we hadn't been using any birth control for the past 5 years and no 'surprises'. The week after I made an appointment for b/c with my ob I got pregnant... yikes! Kids are 16 and 12, but we are slowly warming to the idea of the pitter-patter of little feet! I have not told many people yet either - there will be some very surprised folks out there for sure! I am due the first week of december and feeling so different than I did with either son before... I am now questioning whether to find out the gender or not... It is hard waiting!! Good luck to you and everyone with their pregnancies! Think happy thoughts!
Hello all, I too am due Dec 23. This will be my 7th child. We thought we were complete with 5 but then no. 6 showed up 4 years later, and now 5 years after her comes no. 7. I'm still warming up to the idea. I just decided to go to school after being a stay at home mom for 12 years. We haven't told anyone that lives near us, of the 6 kids only the youngest 3 will be happy to hear our news. The older 3 realize the financial burden of another body to feed and clothe. I know they will love the baby all the same, just terrified to break the news. Especially to my parents who have helped us out whenever we've needed it. I'm sure they think we have enough children as we thought too. Hope to get to know you ladies better and congratulations!
This is our 3rd child. I found out about a month ago that I am pregnant. I will be going to my 1st OBGYN appt tomorrow. My estimated due date is 12/22/09, but I will find out for sure tomorrow... the OBGYN is usually pretty much right on with my due dates. The due date finders online are usually off by a week, I always end up being a little bit further along then they state.
We are so excited about this pregnancy, pretty much as much as we were with our first. Our 2nd was a surprise, she didn't make it, though. Hadassah, our 2nd child was born premature and died from pulmonary hypoplasia. So, this pregnancy is really a blessing!!!
I too am confused why they don't have a Dec. 09 board?! Ugh! Anywho...I am Due either the 1st or 2nd...couldn't quite recall what exact date it started...just knew it was a few days before my daughter's 6th birthday. Thinking it would be "heavy" by then! Anywho...I am expecting #3...my son just turned 8. We just decided to start trying and it happened right away.
I live in WI as well...
Had my first appt at 10 weeks and heard the heartbeat...but was also told that I was measuring more...which I know is not the case. So, I am excited to see what happens at the next appointment.
Congrats to each of you!!!
