    HI, Im new here.

    Hi, everyone, and congrats to all.

    I am expecting with mine and my husbands first together (married since May 2011). But it is far from our first, though I am handeling it as if it was. This baby would be #8 (#5 for me, #4 for him) for our family. Oh, by the way, they are ALL GIRLS.

    I have my first ultrasound 8-22-11 and my first ob appt. 9-1-11. I was wondering if that is normal since as of July 18 my EDD is March 26, 2012, putting me at 8 weeks today.

    I am looking for a support team, to help me to the end. We are both in the military and just got news, my husband is moving to Japan for 3 three years, in Jan.

    What is team Green and team yellow?
    Thank you, all

    Green team is you want to know what you are having and I think yellow is you don't want to know what you are having.
    These boards here are a great support team for you and your pregnancy.

    The timing of your appointments is very normal. Most OBs in town won't see anyone until 12 weeks. It's a long wait when you're in the uncertain 1st trimester =P All girls!!! Wow!

    I'm guessing I'm due about a week after you with my second. We have an 11 month old girl and are hoping for another girl since they will be so close in age.
