I should have joined this group long ago, lol. I did join a group on babyfit that was October 2010 babies and have met some of the awesomest people through that, but now that I'm on spark, I started looking around and found this group. I have a son, Myles, that I had October 26th 2010 and he has a big sister, Piper who is turning 4 March 31st. I stay at home with them and now am trying to get in shape and lose all of that pregnancy weight. My name is Lori and I am 33. Nice to meet you! LOL.

Hi Everyone,

I just realized that I hadn't introduced myself. I really enjoyed reading about all of you and I"m so excited that we can share our experiences together.

I joined SP last year on April 28th. I joined about 3 weeks after my daughter Vanessa was stillborn at 21 weeks. I really wanted to lose weight and get healthy so that I would be in good shape to try again when my doctors said it was ok.

We were able to start trying in August after they finished lots of different tests to try and figure out why I had lost her. They really didn't figure anything out so they are just assuming that she had a "bad" placenta from the very beginning which caused her to get IUGR. As a result, when I delivered her at 21 weeks she only weighed 5 oz.

It took us about 8 months to get pregnant again (probably all the stress)and I was thrilled to get my BFP on March 13th (the first day of Spring Break in Ontario). I"m very nervous as I really want a healthy baby this time.

I'm now 15 weeks pregnant and am trying to take it one day at a time and be hopeful for the future.

Hi everyone! I'm Jill. Thought I'd join in. I'm pregnant with my second baby. I'm due Dec. 7. But my daughter came almost 3 weeks early so I feel like I'm having a November baby. So, I'm in the 11th week right now.

I'm Emily... I will be 30 later this month and this is my first. DH and I will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary in October and have been together nearly 7 years. After a long three years of trying (with no success) we finally go the attention of my Dr's PA, who immediately addressed our concerns. In a matter of a few months we were referred to a wonderful reproductive endocrinologist - and a few months later, we were given the green light, and we managed to get pregnant on the first try!

After our ultrasound yesterday, the Doc determined a due date of November 27th. While there isn't a whole lot to see at just over 6 weeks, we did get to hear the heartbeat though... totally amazing! ( :

Good luck to everyone else on this wonderful journey!!!

it is nice- the one with the older child (who is not interested in having another) is kind of sick of it but the youngest just had her baby like 3 weeks ago so we are talking a lot about stuff which is great. My mom and I are really close and she lives in Atlanta with me which is the best.

Your sister cruise sounds awesome! I am going to have to steal that idea in a few years. It sounds soooo fun.

ABIGAILFR, That's so exciting! It is neat that you get to talk with your sisters about everything and that they have been there. I also have two younger sisters and they are excited about being aunts but I worry that they are getting tired of the baby talk because they've never been there. I get to see them in May for a sister cruise that we had planned before I got PG and I hope that I am showing even a little by then because I think it will get them excited!

I am 29 (turning 30 is less than a month), DH is 28. We have been married almost 5 years (ann. is this summer) and have been together a total of 9.5 yr. I am a teacher (chemistry)- but this is my last year for a while. DH is in a medical residency program- with about a year remaining.

I went off BCP last August, expecting for us to start TTC in Dec. but we put it off a few months to allow DH bit more time to get ready mentally. My cycles have been long and erratic but the first cycle we actually tried, I got pregnant- tracking EVERYTHING with FF- so I am thrilled. DH, is a bit in shock but getting more excited each day. He thought it was going to take several months.

I am due Nov. 26- first apt is next tuesday. I am nervous- its my first pregnancy ever- so I just really hope everything stays healthy and I don't have a miscarriage. I hope its a boy just because I know my DH will freak out a bit if its a girl (he only had brothers growing up) and I really hope its not twins (runs in my family a bit).

I am so thankful to be finishing work in just two months so I can focus on house repairs and organizing and cleaning this summer and fall in prep. for baby. Also, both my younger sisters already have babies so I am the oldest and the last :) but thats OK, I have learned a lot of "mistakes" from them.

The good thing about those of us who started a weight loss journey even if we didn't reach our goal weight is that we started to make the lifestyle changes that will hopefully make our pregnancy easier.

DEPIVER, I'm sorry that things are so rough with your husband right now. I hope that you are able to work things out soon but we will be around for support if you need it.

Hi!
My name is Yinka and I my due date is Oct 23, 2010. I joined Spark people in January to loose weight and get pregnant. I lost 5ibs, got pregnant and put all 5 back on!
I am so glad to meet people who would be due around the same time as me.
Its my first pregnancy and I recently had a big fight with my hubby and had to move out. I really don't know what the future would be like, but I know I want this baby so bad.

Thanks for creating this team!

Hi katie, thanks for bringing me here. Hope you're feeling ok?

I forgot to add, only been on SP just over 2 months, wanted to lose 50 lbs but hey ho. I'm happy to keep being careful for the first trimester or so, it won't do the little one any harm and best if I'm healthy.

Hi! I'm Katie. I also joined SP in December 09 looking to lose 50 lbs! I am only down 18 but now need to put that on hold for a bit.

My husband and I will celebrate our 4 year anniversary in May. We had an early miscarriage in the first few months of being married (we weren't trying to get PG).

I have endometriosis and expected things to take some time to get pregnant. I am also bipolar and needed to get off medication so we decided last March that we were ready and started all the preparations. I got weaned off the medication but struggled with the stress of my job and no medication to help balance my moods. After letting my job know that I was leaving, we started trying only to find out that our insurance company was going out of business so we got put on the government insurance (we live in the Cayman Islands). I quit my job and we started again in January.

And here we are! I have my first appointment with the doctor on March 26. We have heard HORROR stories about the government doctors so we are going to pay out of pocket for the private doctor that we were going to before our insurance company went under.

I just found out yesterday, Mother's Day here in the UK, that I am pregnant with our second child. we have a 27 month old boy and have been trying for over a year. I'm 35, so had almost given up hope when it happened. We're so happy and excited. I'm an only child and didn't want the same for my son, so fingers crossed for the next 249 days, I can't wait to add to our family!!

My name is Kristin. I started on SP in December 2009 and was looking to loose around 50 pounds for my wedding, which is in May. I had lost almost 30 by the end of February. My fiance and I stopped using BC because it gave me major migraines. I started tracking my cycles as a way to try to prevent pregnancy, since we had no other form of birth control as an option (way too long of a story). Anyhow, that obviously didn't work because on 3/2/10 I got my BFP. Was totally stressed about it at first, mainly due to the fact that we aren't married yet, as well as many upcoming changes. I just got offered a new job in Columbus, Ohio and we will be moving right after the wedding. I am a psychologist, so that means sadly enough that I don't have health insurance and make too much to qualify for assistance. So those things kind of put a damper on the initial joy. However, my fiancée was awesome when I told him, which has really helped me let go of my worries and just be happy for the wonderful gift I have been given. I am due 11/6/10 so I am 6 weeks pregnant. I have my first doctor's appt this coming Thursday.

My husband and I have been married three years and I have always known that becoming pregnant may be an obstacle due to some hormone imbalances. After going from doctor to doctor for the past several years, I finally found a doctor that was able to properly diagnose and treat me within the first visit. I was thrilled and after being given medication to balance my hormones, I was pregnant one month later! I think I'm still in shock as I wasn't sure this would ever happen.

I'm due October 17. I had my first ultrasound last week and everything looks good so far. Of course I'm hoping for a healthy baby, but a healthy baby girl would be nice. :) I have three brothers and four nephews. It would be nice to have a girl in the mix.

Congratulations to you all as well!

DH and I have wanted kids since we started dating almost 7 years ago. We've been married for 3 years come May.

In September, we decided we were 'ready' (are you ever really?) and were expecting to get pregnant right off the bat (young, healthy, no BC for years). But I am a stresser and was letting it get to me. In January, after a painful period, we decided to 'stop' trying. We didn't think about it or talk about it.

The Wednesday before the Saturday I was supposed to get AF I had a tiny dot of spotting. I also realized every night when I laid down I felt nauseous. So on Saturday, I took a test without telling hubby just because of my suspicions. Got 2 pinks lines, though faint, so I took a digital. Got a YES!

More about us: We will both be 25 this summer (May and July). He is a golf professional, I am a teacher and actress.

This is our first baby!

I think it is a girl...who knows?

Hello Pamela and Jamie!

Congratulations!! emoticon
I'm Zainab, you can also call me Dee, been on sparkpeople for quite a while now, over 2 years. Maybe more, ha! I found out I'm pregnant with my first about 10 days ago! Sooo excited! I had been trying to tone myself up before pregnancy but I didn't get to where I really wanted to be. It's okay though because from now on the journey goes the opposite way! : )

I regularly exercised (5-7 times a week) on the treadmill and elliptical but somehow gave it up 2 weeks before I conceived and walked around a lot instead. And since becoming pregnant I haven't had the energy to hit the gym although I still walk at least half an hour a day. I hope I keep it up.

Thank you for the invite Jamie, it's great having our little fall group, oops, I forgot to mention when I'm due! October 28th 2010 : ) I'm 5 weeks pregnant (gestational age) so the emrbyo is just 3 weeks! : ) Pamela we're due on the same day! Although I highly doubt I'll give birth on my due date since it's my first.. Oh well! It's all great anyway :)

Hope to keep this up as it takes my stress away knowing there's a group of people going through the same ups and downs! Thanks for setting this up, talk soon!

Wow 14 years. That's crazy you must of been so happy when the first one came around.

My story is I joined SP to loose weight and lost 14lbs then found out that I was pregnant with my first. My husband and I are very excited. But I'm completely nervous about how much weight I'm going to gain. I don't want to gain any more then I should.
