Out for this cycle...beta hcg was -ve, which is what I expected. I had thyroid labs due and my PCP (love him) put on a stat hcg for me friday afternoon.

But DH is on board fully with TTC! I'm soooo excited that my 2 year old will have a little sibling! :) Looking forward to it ALL really! Praying and hoping that it goes as well as it did last time. :)

Hi everyone, I used to post on this board several years ago when I was pregnant with my now 2.5 year old. It was an amazing source of support during my pregnancy. I have FVL and did lovenox and baby aspirin with my last pregnancy and it went perfectly! My son has brought my husband and I closer together (he is our first together) and is such a joy to have in our lives. I treasure every day I have with him, it has been an amazing experience parenting this time around (in my 30s).

We recently had an "oopsy" and i'm now in the two week wait, with just a few days to go until testing. I don't think I am pregnant, but we will see. After we had our last one, we pretty much decided we were done, but after the last few weeks I have been daydreaming and thinking about what it would mean to bring a 4th child into our family. I am the youngest of 8 children, and my sibling next in age to me is 10 years older. There is the same age difference between my youngest, and his sibling closest in age. I always felt like an only child. Now that my big kids are teenagers and off with their friends a lot, I really love for him to have a sibling to grow up with. I had baby fever really bad the first year he was born, with this exact intention of having two close together but my husband said no way. I can understand, as I was just starting my career, we had a newborn, and some difficult times with my oldest teenager.

Now that we are in the two week wait, I have told my husband my fears and desires. He said he has to think about it. I know like any pregnancy its a BIG decision to decide to TTC, but especially with a high-risk pregnancy.

Anyway, nice to meet everyone, I will be browsing through posts to try to get to know you! :)
