I thought it would be nice for everyone to check in and let us know where you're at in your pregnancy and how you're doing and to get to know everyone a little better.

Name/ Location?  Dina/ Iowa

Age? 29

Due date? Feb 18th

Team Pink, Team Blue or Team Green? Secretly hoping for team pink, but kinda feeling like I'm going to be team blue which would also be great.

Who is the first person you told after your SO that you were expecting?  We told my in laws first, she's been begging us for grandchildren since we'd only been together for 6 months.  This will be the first grandchild for both my parents and DH's parents and both are very excited!

Who is the first person you told after your SO that you were expecting? we were on vacation, away from our friends and family (whom we wanted to tell in person). so i guess the first person we told is someone at the wineries we visited Napa Valley that day, explaining why only one of us was tasting. :smileywink:

Age? 28

Due date? 1/3/13

Team Pink, Team Blue or Team Green? Team Green, until we find out in about two weeks

Who is the first person you told after your SO that you were expecting? DH was taking a walk when I tested (as soon as I got in from work) and so I called him and told him, then I called my dad because I found out on his birthday. We told the in-laws that day, too.

Name/ Location? Katie/ Colorado

Age? 28

Due date? 11/16. but will need to deliver around 38 weeks so I am hoping to be able to hold out until 11/2. We find out what we are doing on 8/29 when we find out placenta positioning since it was completely over my cervix at 21 weeks.

Team Pink, Team Blue or Team Green? Team Pink!

Who is the first person you told after your SO that you were expecting? My RE, lol. She did the blood test the day I found out. Then, you guys on the ttcyfc that night. When I got the results I called my mom and MIL, DH wanted it confirmed before we told them. Then my MIL told my FIL before we could tell him. We still have not told DH's grandparents, might be November before we tell them if DH has his way.

Name/ Location?  Rebecca, NM

Age?  26

Due date? March 15, 2013

Team Pink, Team Blue or Team Green?  Don't know yet - how about team purple? ;-)

Who is the first person you told after your SO that you were expecting?  The TTC group found out before DH since he was grumpy that morning!  Lol! :-)  After DH, I told one of my best friends who is due at the end of September since she told me before her DH as he was at work and she could not contact him and didn't want to leave a VM, but *had* to tell someone!


So glad I found you all - I had joined the March expecting club, but felt a bit lost among alllllll the ladies there.

Team green is when you don't know the sex of the bab(y/ ies).

In the beginning I felt a little lost on my EC board as well, but the BTDT mom's have really good advise. I like to read both boards now (and now that I am almost in the third trimester, I read all the birth stories on other boards as well). It is really nice when everyone in the group is going through exactly what you are going through and can sympathize with you.

Welcome Rebecca and Michelle.

Becca, I'm glad you found us, I'm sorry I didn't suggest it to you on the other board! I like looking at both this board and the Feb EC because the BTDT moms have lots to tell and I get great advice and try to bring some things back here. I also love this group because we're all new to this and have some of the same fears and excitements but we're all at different stages.

Michelle- Are you excited about expecting twins?  A lot of us are still team green since we are earlier on in our pregnancies. Do you think you'll find out what you're having or be surprised?

Dina, no worries!  I've been looking at the March EC board, but there's just sooooo many people there it's hard to keep up with all that is going on. ;-)

Tiffany it's unusual for a first timer to have a planned c/s. Are you excited to know the exact date that your baby will arrive? As much as I'd not really want a c/s it would be nice to know the exact date to expect my LO to arrive.
