join me, early birdies!

looks like I am the first to post here ... for good reason, anyone belonging to this group is probably super new to pregnancy in general, so I will start us off!


My name is Megan, I was married this December 16, 2011 to my long time lovebug & bff Bryan. We have lived together for 2 years and been together for about 7. We have the cutest huskie (see my user pic?!) and now a bun in the oven! We have talked about having a baby for as long as I can remember, I have been way more excited to become a mommy than I ever was to plan a wedding (sorry PW!)


As of tomorrow I am 5 measly weeks pregnant. I have been to the gyno 2xs for hcg bloodwork and my numbers are rapidly doubling (#1st - 277, #2nd 672 whoo hoo!) so I am hoping for a healthy baby in 8 months! :) EDD is Sept. 28, 2012. DH tells me "Summer ends on 9/20 so you have to join the fall group me-GAN!"


I know I (we!) have a loooong way to go, and I would love to make some preggie friends along the way! so please introduce yourselves and lets stick together!

Hi Megan,


I am not due in the fall or winter...I am due this April but I thought I would join anyways in case anyone has questions along the way. My due date is April 26th and next week I will be in my third trimester. Can't believe I am almost done and get to see my little boy soon. Congratulations to all the new mommies that will be joining this group!

I'm Christy and am due sometime in November. Just had two beta hcg levels drawn (1st at 15 dpo= 336 and 2nd at 21 dpo= 3,396). Now I'm anxiously waiting to hear the heartbeat at my ultrasound on April 9th. I am still being seen by our fertility specialist until May when I will switch to an OB. 


I am looking forward to talking with other girls going through the same stuff- esp since this is my first pregnancy and am not sure what to expect every step of the way!

Hello ladies!  I'm due December 2nd =)  My first beta draw was 461 at 15dpo.  The nurse said it was a good level, not really sure though?  This is also my first.


July - I'm with you!  I have my first U/S April 12th at 6w4d.  I'm so anxious!


Not sure I'm going to be able to hear the HB that early, they just want to make sure everything's going smoothly =)  I'm high risk due to some inflammatory markers I've had since I was 21.  Hoping for a H & H 9 months here.

Blonde, congrats!!   Did you get to hear the HB that early?  


My first US is Thursday and I'm so eager to hear/see it!  I just want to be reassured.

I feel like such an outcast! I am much farther along than you girls (though reading your posts get me so excited!!) and not as far as spring/summer ladies!

I will be 16 weeks on Tuesday. My gender u/s is on may 10th (my bday!) and dh and I have been actually talking about finding out! So weird bc we always said it would be a surprise! I still have a month so we'll see.

I am def showing now and thinking I *may* be feeling some sort of movement, though I am not sure. I heard a lot of ftms don't feel til 20 weeks so who knows. I like to tell myself this baby was always "advanced" so I am hoping I am right. I did hear hb at 5w6d! Haha fingers crossed.

I hope you are all doing well and not feeling too nauseous!

Congrats everyone! So I actually ended up having an US last wed due to some dark red/brown spotting I was having. I was so worried but baby is fine and we saw the heartbeat. Turns out the bleeding is from the cervix not the uterus and likely related to the progesterone suppositories I have to take. I will have another US this coming wed with our RE :) I am really thankful to be able to have an US so often especially because I am still spotting although it is just brown and very little. I will be 7 weeks tomorrow. :) I had to tell my supervisor at work and a few co-workers since I am a nurse in ICU and there are some patients I shouldnt take care of and everyone has been so supportive and helpful.

Blonde- You're due on my bday! :)

Just got back from our ultrasound and baby is measuring right on schedule at 7w1d. We got to hear the heartbeat this time and it was amazing! I can't believe I have to wait 2 more weeks to hear it again!

I am due June 12th, but like Candice, thought I'd post here in case anyone has any questions and just to support you ladies. We also have moms that were in different stages in our Spring/Summer babies group so feel free to join us there too if you would like! I have a friend who should be joining the fall/winter group shortly!

That's awesome blustar! The US just keep getting better and better haha..my mil is a midwife so she had her US tech sneak me in :-) Had a quickie today to just get a lil pic of the baby to put in a frame for DHs grandma. We are telling her on Sunday. The baby was measuring exactly 9w6d! It was so cute waving is little arms and legs and wiggling around! We could see the arms, legs, spine, heart, nose...looked do much more like a baby :-). I can't wait till my next appt on may 2 with the specialist! Can't wait to see the baby again!

Anyone else out there due with a November baby?

Blonde, how sweet of your MIL!  WOW I can't believe you can see all that already!  Now, did your doctor give you the all clear for telling everyone?  


I'm having my next US this Friday, I'll be 8w5d with maternal-fetal medicine and then again at 10w4d with my regular OB - can't wait to see our bean again (and maybe some little arms and legs)!!!  After my 10 week appt he says I can shout it from the rooftops, I'll be in the clear =)

Hi everyone. Thought I had posted here before but I realized I forgot to! I'm technically due on the last day of summer so I am on the late end of the Spring/Summer group and on the very early side of this Fall/Winter group. We'll see which season baby lands in!


I am 18w4d. I will be going in for an appointment in two days and my 20 week gender ultrasound will take place in a couple of weeks. So far I've had a fairly easy pregnancy. I am feeling really good in the second tri. I can't believe I'm almost half way there! ~Jackie

I had my last US with my RE this past Friday. I was 9 weeks 4 days and I can't believe how big baby is compared to 2 weeks ago! He/she was moving all around and I could see arms and legs and a huge head :) The heartbeat was 176 bpm. I will have to add my pics to the US thread.


I am so happy to be moving on to a regular OB's office and will have my first appointment and US with her on May 10th. Also, my Dr told me I could quit taking the progesterone now, but I am nervous to quit! lol. I still have about 2 1/2 weeks of medication left so I have continued taking it the last few nights. I think I am going to take it for another few days and then stop, esp because I know it can't hurt anything. I am getting antsy to put the first trimester behind me and finally announce to everyone, although we have already told our families and close friends and everyone at my work (since I am a nurse). I had a few good days a week ago with no ms and then bam! the past 4 days have been awful. Can't wait to feel better and get a cute little bump!
