Hi all, I didn't see a thread yet for February 2018 Babies, so I thought I would start one!

My due date is currently January 31st but I was 11 days late with my son, so I know I will be closer to February than January!

This is my 3rd pregnancy, I have one DS he was born Feb 2016, 1 Miscarriage and now pregnant and praying this little bean sticks!



End of January

Congrats Feronia to you and your wife!

How have you been feeling so far? Any symptoms?

I have just had crazy vivid dreams the last two-ish weeks, and one bad migraine!

I see in your signature that your a student midwife! That is amazing! I would love to have a home birth but we live about an hour away from any hospital so if something were to go wrong we wouldn't have much time. With my son I had him in a birthing center that is attached to one of our smaller hospitals, we did a water birth! I am hoping to try and do the same with this baby!

Hey! Maybe we should mention this group in the TTC or testing threads so people know where to find it? Last time around the February thread I was in when I was pregnant with my son was really active!

Yes! I'm going into 3rd year so it's going to be sooo busy. Midwives here do home and hospital births, and I wish there were more birth centres around! 2 in Ontario, 1 in Winnipeg, a bunch in Quebec, but aside from that I don't think there are many (or any).

I've had symptoms since 3 dpo, which makes no sense, but I've had bad nausea, migraines, lower back pain, and exhaustion. My hCG was only 13 though when I had it tested at 10 dpo, but it more than tripled up to 55, so I'm becoming less worried about that.

That is great that your numbers tripled!! I haven't had any testing done yet other than POS, our doctors here think it is a waste of time to run the tests before 6-8 weeks. That's what my last doctor told me, he was annoyed that I went in for tests before 8 weeks.

I have been having some tightness and sometimes sharp pain on my right side occasionally, which has me a bit worried.

I live in Saskatchewan! The birth center that I went to is the only one that I know of in Saskatchewan and it is federally funded not provincially, like most of the hospitals, etc. We have such a midwife shortage here!

I will post in the 1st Trimester Page!

Ahh, I've heard about the midwife shortage in Saskatchewan. I'm in Ontario where it's been around the longest so thankfully it's well integrated. I will probably practice here or in BC.

I do sort of wish I didn't do the hCG tests this time, but I have had two losses before and both times the hCG levels let me know what was going to happen. They went up nicely with my two kiddos, but honestly, the stress of waiting for those numbers probably was not worth it!

Hi there,

I just had my very faint this morning.....Ive taken 4 tests! Lol

I really thought I was out again this month as my lp has been so short every month. I started spotting on 10dpo, had -ve tests then and next day. Spotting had almost stopped this morning 12dpo, so I tested again and there it was! Faint but there! Cant believe it. Baby #3!!

Soooooo Im being cautious. Terrified its a chemical. Im waiting to see if line is darker tomorrow then I will telll my OH. He knows about the bfn on tuesday but hasnt asked anything since.

I had a mc in June 4 years ago....on my birthday....so its on my mind and Im a bit scared.

Anyway, looking forward to chatting with you lovely ladies!

Our Midwife situation is definitely getting better, but it far from where it could be!
The hcg tests can cause a lot of worry, but the reassurance when you see those numbers rise does help!

Welcome Stormynights & BabyBrain!

Babybrain - Fingers crossed that this little bean sticks! Congrats on #3!!

I had a miscarriage earlier this year, so I am very cautiously pregnant too, although this time around seems similar to when I was pregnant with my son, so far!

I was able to get out and golf nine last night! It was a great sunny evening here followed by a great Thunderstorm!

Have any of you told anyone??
I told DH last Friday after I got the test done. I laid out a Newborn Outfit, a "Big Bro" t-shirt for DS and a pack of cigars for my husband on our hotel room bed. My DH and DS were in a wedding party this past weekend. We didn't want to tell anyone but DH had a few drinks and told the groom & best man, the best man then proceeded to pretty much announce it at the rehearsal party. So safe to say it is already knowledge in our group of friends. We told his parents last night and are telling my parents tomorrow! With it being wedding season it is so hard to keep it a secret!

Sorry for the long post!

We went to the doctor today, just for a pee test to confirm the pregnancy.

I tested last thursday, I told my mom and dad that night. Invited them over, mom knew we had been trying, and I couldn't keep it in... my dad I just told because he came with my mom... I told DH that friday on our wedding anniversary.

DH's parents live out of state, so we will tell them when we see them next. Going to tell DD shortly before that.
