BFP makes 3!
Fri, 12-17-2010 - 9:05am

My name is Shannon and I just got my BFP this morning :)

I am happily married and have two girls, Lily (1/3/10) & Claire (4/20/08). I secretly hope #3 is a girl, too! But I would be thrilled to have a boy! EDD is August 29, but I am doomed to have another preemie because of a bicornuate uterus (heart-shaped). My girls were born at 34.3 weeks and 35 weeks. So, adjusted EDD is July 18-25.

I have a tiny baby bump already (I'm 4 foot 11 inches!) and have had many symptoms, including a drop in breastmilk supply (for my 11 month old), mood swings (mostly rage), a little queasiness, and heightened smell that leads to queasiness.

But the hardest thing about being PG is dropping the amount of coffee I drink! I love my coffee! It will be hard to function...

So hello, good luck, and can't wait to get to know you ladies!
