Heck yeah! Bring on the moomoos and the flipfops for our swollen feet!

I check, too. I always have spotting early in pregnancy and after two losses it's just a compulsive habit. I will probably always do it. What you did totally made me though. Been there, done that!

I just about passed out on the pot then I saw that!! So, then I drank 1.5 quarts of water and waited and tested with two more tests and all were positive. Holy moly! I'll post my pictures in the next few days. I think my due date will be October 4th, but I won't know for sure until my OB apt on feb 21. I have an ultrasound and then see my OB. I am really excited and surprised and my husband was surprised and is excited as well.
Hello and welcome!! Hurray for surprise babies!

Yep, love the idea of a weekly!

I'm super excited, but scared to death. I'm pleading with God that this one will make it. I don't even want to think about the possibility of another loss, but can't help thinking of it as well. I will be EXTREMELY cautiously expecting for a while, but I plan to enjoy it too. That's what I did with my two losses, and even though the losses were so hard, I was glad that I enjoyed those little ones while they were with me. Anyways, AF is due sat so I'll be happy when I get past that first milestone, and happy when I actually start feeling some good preg symptoms. I've read most of this thread, just to "meet" you all. I hope I don't sound negative....I'm THRILLED to be here! THRILLED to have another chance and praying this time is our time!

OH MY GOODNESS JENNY!! I am SO happy to see you here! Congratulations!!

Lots of rainbows. How wonderful! Hoping and praying for everyone that these are our forever babies.

I am Laura! Due around the 10th Not a rainbow baby here but I will be praying for all of you who are expecting theirs!
Totally should start a daily chat thread and maybe an intro thread?
Love the idea of an intro thread - I just posted in it. Welcome, Laura! Congratulations!!

Ohhh, mama... I don't think the digis are as sensitive as the cheapies though. I am praying for you.

Do we want to just type up a little something about ourselves, or do we want a list of questions?

Also, my last DD group did something kind of cool. They would "spotlight" on a different mama every week and start a thread with her name- then everyone could ask her whatever they wanted all week. It was a really cool way to get to know each other.

So maybe we should do a short introduction in the "intro thread" and then if you all wanted we could do the "spotlight" as well? Might be a fun way to keep things lively as well.
The spotlight idea is really cool!! I think that'd be a lot of fun.

My appointment today was pretty much awful. I might just post it in a separate thread because it's kind of a long story.

Oh, and I'm really getting nauseous. Bleeeggghh.

Oh no! I just looked for a thread, but I may not have given you enough time.

I felt my first bout of nausea today too. Driving my oldest and her friends to the mall, the amount of perfume these girls wear is incredible. I couldn't get to the mall fast enough! And then I thought at least when I picked them up they would have had time to air out... nope! They put MORE on at the mall! Apparently none of their moms have explained the "less is more" theory.
Anyway, long rant- but I'm definitely beginning to develop sensitivities.

I just posted! It's long, sorry. And super whiny but I just had to get it off my chest.

I know what you mean with the sensitvities. Perfume is a trigger for me, too.

Oh, and I got a PM back from the mods about the forum change. She said she's flagged it for the techs but that she can't do it herself. So it's in the works!

I'm blaming this one on the hubby... he made me do it. But I finally gave in and took a digital test and there results....

I don't think it could be more clear than this.

YAY YAY YAY!!!!! I've been waiting for you to test again and secretly hoping you'd cave early. I remember, in the ATTS forum, when you said AF was due the 4th, I thought, "oh, mine is too. Wouldn't it be nice if neither of ours came."

Re: Oct 2012

Jenny... just read your blog post... It's kind of ironic though... you were pregnant when you wrote that! It's definitely meant to be! My early loss edd is 3/11 and I am so glad I'm going to have this little kumquat with me on that day... it will make it much easier somehow. And omg... can I say... your little red heads... how cute! My great grandmother was a red head and it hasn't showed up in the family since. I would love love love for the red to show up again... especially if it's a girl as we plan to use my great grandmothers middle name. It would just be so fitting! But I think our chances of that are super low. I think red hair is recessive and my husband and I are pretty definitively dark haired, as you can see<<<
