Karoolia - I'm sorry about your scare, I can't imagine how afraid and nervous you were! I'm so glad that baby turned out to be okay though. Happy 8 weeks! Looking forward to hearing about your scan in August.
I changed your due date from unknown to 03/03/18, I hope that's okay.

Laroawan - Congrats on your ! H&H 9 months and lots of rainbow dust to you!
I added you to our list of preggos.

Swedengirl - Congrats on your bump! We didn't care which gender we got for our 1st but I remember how over the moon we were when we found out that our bump was the second time, girls are so wonderful.
I changed your bump from to on the preggo list.

Sophie1205 - Welcome to the group! I added you to the WTT, please let me know if anything needs to be added or changed.

Terah - Lots of dust for your 4th cycle TTC! I hope it doesn't take much longer for you.
I can't believe that Everett is going to be 1 already next month! Where does the time go?
Fall is our busy birthday time which is why I'm hoping to avoid having any more Fall babies.
DS's birthday is September 23rd (He's turning 4 this year! ), mine is October 26th, and DH's is November 25th. No more Fall birthdays for us, lol.

That's kind of what worries me about waiting longer. I'm afraid the transition won't be as smooth. As it is if we get pregnant right away again after TTC in September or October 2018 Liam will be going off to Kindergarten just a couple of months after. 2018 is my last chance to have another baby before my kids start hitting school age.

At the same time we just aren't sure we can afford a 3rd right now on one income. We just reached a point where we're comfortable financially instead of just surviving and we really don't want to go back to just surviving again. It doesn't help that DH is all about getting rid of our baby stuff right now. As it is we spent at least $400 on new baby stuff for DD and that's not counting everything our parents spent and everything we've spent since she was born. I really don't want to spend that kind of money on baby stuff again. It helps that we cloth diaper and breastfeed so that would save us a lot of money out the gates but it doesn't do us much good if we have to buy everything else again. It's also the main reason I'm going to be swaying again if we do end up trying for another baby. We already have everything we need for a girl except for a baby swing because DS broke the one we had. If we had another boy we'd still have to buy clothes for him because we didn't keep any of DS's after we found out we were having a the second time.
The problem with keeping everything is that we have a small house with no storage space and all of the baby stuff we aren't using anymore is really starting to take up space. We won't be able to afford to buy a house for several more years. I'm trying to be optimistic about 10 years from now but I'm really not sure how long it's going to take. 5 years from now would be ideal but I don't see it happening.

Hello!! I would like to join your group While it's not a 100%, we are thinking about TTC baby #2 in April.

Right now, I'm a full-time college student, and I would graduate right before baby #2 was due if we got pregnant right away. We got pregnant on the first try with DS, who is currently 14 months, but this time around I have an IUD, so I'm worried the hormones will mess with conceiving right away.

I'm going to try to read through the forum to see what all I've missed!

03/03/2018 is fine for now! I'll get an actual due date at my appointment, assuming all is well. Two weeks today until I see the OB!

How is everyone doing? I'd love to see an update from our preggos and those that have been on the TTC/NTNP list for a while. I hope that you are all doing well.
I'm doing okay. My DH just went back to work for the school year and it's my DS's last year at home before he goes to preschool. It's actually kind of nice being at home alone with the kids again. I love my husband but after an entire Summer at home I just want a chance to miss him and he's been driving me kind of crazy.

haha, poor husband! I'm sure I would feel the same.

I don't really have an update to share. Still waiting to see the OB. My appointment is Aug. 15th, so next Tuesday. I'm getting pretty nervous. I'm dreading going back just to be told baby has been gone for weeks. It was dreadful last time.

So just crossing my fingers and waiting for now. I'll update when I know one way or another.

Karoolia that has to be hard. I was a nervous wreck in my 3rd Trimester with my DD because that's my war zone vs the 1st Trimester for most other women. My babies barely made it to term and with my DS I had placental problems that went completely unchecked during my pregnancy and preeclampsia during labor. I was terrified of something similar happening with my DD since my labor with DS was so scary that my DH thought he was going to lose both of us. I did have low fluid levels at the end but overall I had a much better experience with my pregnancy and labor the second time around and it's made me much more hopeful for a future pregnancy. I hope that you can experience that same sense of relief after you find out that this is truly your rainbow at your appointment.

Wow, how frightening! I can't imagine how you must have felt. Your husband must have been so frightened during your labor. I'm glad things went better the second time around.

I really hope that everything goes well at my appointment and that I do feel relieved after. It has made me a little sad that I'm not enjoying my pregnancy the way my friends seem to be enjoying theirs. I have no desire to take weekly pictures or share my news because I don't want to have to delete them all later or have to update people with sad news.

There's nothing wrong with waiting to announce until you're comfortable but a friend once told me that she has a friend that fosters kids and her friend told her while she was pregnant with her rainbow and feeling like she couldn't enjoy it "I never know when these kids are going to leave my home. I love all of them and it's always sad for me but I choose to celebrate and be the best foster mom I can be to each and every child for as long as they're with me. You could lose this baby too but this baby could also be your rainbow. If this baby isn't your rainbow you'll feel sad whether you celebrated the baby or not, so love your babies for as long as they're with you".

I've been fortunate enough to never have a loss but I regret not taking more pictures while I was pregnant and I think you probably will too if this ends up being your rainbow. I understand how you must be feeling, I can't imagine how hard it would be to get excited about a pregnancy after a loss. You don't have to delete the pictures if you do have another loss though.
