Have you taken a pregnancy test? I was getting super positive OPKS when I found out I was pregnant with my son.

So far I haven't taken any pregnancy tests this cycle, but I might go for it tomorrow morning. I'm super nauseated tonight just thinking about it lol. I was going to wait until Saturday morning but if I need to I can pick up a digital test in town tomorrow.

Oh my goodness! BFP this morning on the digital! According to my bbt chart I'm due on Feb 20/17. I showed DH the test about a second after I looked at it... and we told Emma that she is going to be a big sister lol. Obviously were very excited Smile
It would seem that a trip home to my folks for a weekend followed by a marathon of bd when I return is the "recipe" for a bfp... for us anyway lol, it worked with Emma and now again Laughing out loud

Went to the Dr today and it's confirmed! I'm pregnant! My due date is currently my birthday, but I go for a dating ultrasound on the 14th of July and we'll find out the actual due date. We're going to try and keep it just between us until then Smile

Wow! Time is flying by! I'm already in my second trimester Smile w we have begun preparing our DD for her new little brother or sister, she is getting a new room and a new bed.

I'm excited for my next Dr apt, we'll get to finally hear the heartbeat! We have seen the heartbeat with our ultrasounds but haven't got to hear it yet. At the end of September well get to find out what we're having.

So far this pregnancy had been very different from the last, i haven't had much sickness and my weight has basically stayed the same, lay time i was sick every morning and in sure i had gained 20 lbs already by this time lol.

Only 72 days to go until my due date! Baby kicks great big kicks now, so I know she ok in there Smile We go for monthly ultrasounds now to check how she is growing, really hoping to have a "normal" sized baby this time. Emma was 9 lbs 15.2 oz when she was born and her shoulders got stuck, but was still delivered vaginally... which means I get to go for vaginal delivery again but the delivery team will be prepared for a rough delivery. The dr assured me that usually if they are prepared for it, there's no problem during delivery and that is my baby weighs less than 9 lbs it should slip right out lol. I've been seeing a dietician and making sure to keep exercising to do my part and hopefully have a bit smaller baby. I can't wait to meet baby, it feels like I've been pregnant forever already lol.

Well I can't believe it! Here I am 38 weeks along on my second pregnancy!!! I am so thankful to have found this site, and the support that I received from the girls in my ttc buddies group!

I have tried very hard this pregnancy to keep my weight gain within the guidleines for my bmi (only 11-20 lbs) and up to this point have been successful. At my last ultrasound baby was measuring in the 50th percentile, so it could be shaping up for a much smoother delivery this time around. I have been taking evening primrose oil capsules (orally) and raspberry leaf tea in both tea and capsule form... hopefully that will help when baby comes also! I have been starting to feel some contractions today, hopefully that means baby will be here soon!

We are quite possibly done ttc now. I will be back to share how the delivery goes with this one Smile
