hi all!  i just wanted to pop in and let you know i've been thinking about you all and checking this section for happy news to be posted!

i remember this time last year, when thinking that a BFP would be so amazing.  i remember wanting to show up to christmas with family with a giant bow around my belly to let them know we were expecting.  and i remember not getting that BFP...

so here's to hoping that you all get that fun and long-awaited news, and that your holiday season is that much happier and that much sweeter.

quick update on me:  baby boy's due date is coming up quickly - january 16.  DH and i both think i'll end up going early (maybe just wishful thinking?).  at my 36wk appt this week, i was dilated to a 1.5 and 50% effaced.  i know i can be like this for weeks, but we're hoping to meet our little man sooner rather than later!  i'm hoping for his grand entrance to the world to happen between christmas and new year.  i think we've finally decided on a name, i'd say we're about 98% sure at this point.  first name is one we both like, middle name is after DH's beloved grandmother who recently passed away.  i can't wait to see this little guy's face; hoping he turns out to be just like his daddy.  i'll let you lovely ladies know when he's here!

I agree with Diane that I'm always thinking of you girls.  I too had wanted that Christmas BFP and it will happen, but not always when you hope it will!  I hope all of you have a happy holidays and that you stay strong during the holidays.  I remember it being a challenge for me with all the questions about when you're going to have a child.  It WILL happen and you WILL get your BFP!  Happy Holidays everyone!


My update, I'm going on 32 weeks and still feeling great.  Really no big complaints but I'm feeling like it's getting harder to move around and tie my shoes etc with my growing belly.  I'm looking forward to making it to that 36 week mark so I will be considered full term.

Oh wow!  I have been trying to log in for months now and this is the first time it has let me!  How exciting!!  

I third everything Diane and Dina have said.  This board was such a support to me during such an exciting, difficult time.  This Christmas was a thousand times better than last!

My update, I am now 20 weeks pregnant and we just found out we are Team Pink!!!  Anatomy scan showed that all the parts are where they should be and the baby is growing well!  It is so exciting to hear how everyone is doing and baby dust all around!

Tess, I'm so glad you stopped by to update!!! I have been wondering how you're doing and if everything was going well for you! Congrats on being 20 weeks, I can't tell you how happy I am for you, I know you've had a lot of struggles along the way!
