This topic is a place for those due June through August 2012 to discuss their soon-to-be bundles of joy and all the excitement of pregnancy!
We will keep an updated list of those expecting, their due dates and the gender of the baby (if known) so please include that information (if available) in your first post.
Congratulations to all the new expectant moms out there!

So so sorry to hear of your loss yvar. I can't begin to imagine what you and your wife are going through. Like musical_fruit said, my thought go out to you
Oh yvar, I'm so, so sorry to hear this! Sending you my thoughts and prayers for another chance! I can't imagine what you're both going through, but keep your chins up, sometimes it takes a while!
We're getting very excited for our little jelly bean here! Went and registered over the weekend - that was a task in itself!
I look like I swallowed a basketball, but am getting lots more movement and my husband finally felt his first kick Monday night. We laugh because it so feels like something out of the Exorcism or Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but it so sweet at the same time! I still occassionally think (like Musical_Fruit) 'Holy Cow! I'm pregnant!', but that's becoming less frequent the bigger I get...
Congrats again to all the new parents-to-be and again yvar... I am SO so sorry for your loss this third time! Hang in there and keep trying!
Ahhh! I have been doing a terrible job of keeping up on this board! Things have gotten super busy for me with work lately, I feel like I hardly have time to sit!
I'm proud to announce we are officially team...PINK!!!
We are expecting a little girl and I couldn't be more excited! I would have been happy no matter what but I have always wanted a baby girl :) Now I'm busy with starting a registry for my shower and figuring out how to decorate and paint the nursery with mine and my husband's super busy schedules.
I am finally starting to have a belly, though I am hearing from co workers that its still fairly small considering I am 5 months along (officilly halfway done today!). I'm ready for a big ol baby bump and also for the kicks to start! I can't wait till my husband is able to feel our lttle girl!
Lots of excitement over here. Anybody else find out the gender? Any other exciting news out there?
Kellabe - Congrats on the baby girl!!!! How exciting! How are you decorating the nursery? How's the registry process going? We did ours two weeks ago because we have 3 showers coming, one at the end of this month! Husband had SO much fun with the little scanner gun! LOL And he even snuck a Playstation video game on the registery... like he's actually going to GET it! Dork... LOL
Blackswan - I'm with you, the itchy skin is making me nuts! I have the worst dry skin on my hands and face these days!! And my back always starts itching at night, when I lay down to sleep!! It's awful! My MIL warned me not to scratch at my belly when it starts itching more because it will make the stretch marks worse. When do you find out the gender of your baby?
We confirmed at the beginning of February that we're on team BLUE! My family is beyond excited as this is the first boy on my side in 60 years! I'm 6 months now and starting to show, but I still don't feel like I'm very big at all! It's all in my belly, which I suppose is a good thing, but from behind, you'd never know I was pregnant! I agree, Kellabe, I want the big ol' belly so people KNOW I'm pregnant! LOL Of course, when we have that big ol' belly, we'll just be ready for baby to come OUT! ;) Teehee
My cravings aren't as bad anymore, though I cannot get enough ice cream and strawberries!! (I suppose there are worse ways to go, right?) OH and I finally broke down and bought some baby clothes!! I've been resisting for obviously reasons until we found out the gender, but also because I know you do get a lot at your shower... but I finally gave in...
Anyone else noticing a pattern to the kicking? My little jelly bean is usually active when I first wake, after I eat and right at bedtime. He has the timing of his father apparently... LOL *squeee* I love saying 'he'!
Hope you guys slow down at work a little! I've been busy too, just not as bad it sounds!
Hi Ladies, and congratulations to everyone! We are expecting out 4th (a surprise!) child the end of August. We are THRILLED at such a surprise, as are the children. We have just started telling family, with the majority of the extended family not knowing yet. We are planning on putting together a video to send out to everyone here really soon. We have our 2nd ultrasound scheduled next week, and I am excited to see how the baby is growing and changing. I am not going to find out the gender to this one, at least I hope that I am strong enough to not change my mind in the middle of the US and ask the tech! :) I have a history of doing that. hahaha Happy pregnancy to everyone!
I'm due 7/18/12 with a boy.
Looking to slow down my pregnancy weight gain by keeping track of my foods and exercise (and taking more time to planning out what I eat and making the right choices rather than eating up the pan of brownies!).
I'm currently 25 weeks and have gained about 25 pounds (do we count the 5 mas pounds in there as pregnancy pounds?)...especially the last two visits to the OBGYN I gained 7 and 8 pounds the last two months. Looking to slow it down to one pound a week, or less if possible.
In other news, I'm starting to get pretty itchy despite all the lotion I'm using. I had forgotten about that with my previous pregnancy :p Ah well, the joys of pregnancy!
Hope everyone is well and I wish a happy spring to everyone in the northern hemisphere (and a happy fall to our southern hemisphere neighbors).
We will probably never know if we were team pink or team blue, I posted way back when my wife was about 7 or 8 weeks pregnant, we lost the baby at about 9 weeks, my wife opted to wait for miscarriage to happen naturally, it just completed tonight, 15 weeks later!, so she would have been 24 weeks pregnant this week if the baby had lived. I held the placenta sack in my hand tonight, it was massive, it was quite an ordeal, but overall we are so relieved that it finally finished, my wife did great, only about 3 bouts of intense pain. Again sorry to post this sorrowful side of things, but that is our story so that's all I have to tell. That's our 3rd miscarriage, no other children, we are having an embryo-pathology done this time to see if any causes can be found for our recurrent miscarriages. Best wishes to you all for your pregnancies, I am with you in spirit for your 2012 babies!! My best friend and his wife are pregnant and due in October, so I will be living vicariously through their experience as well.
Hi - I am new on here! I'm LK and I'm due August 26th with a little girl.
Yvar, I just read your post before posting - I am so sad for your loss. I really admire the choice of you and your wife to go through the natural process - sending you both lots of love and hugs.
I am due June 8th! Almost here! Can't wait!
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
