    I still can't quite believe I'm here! I'm Kristin and my husband and I have been married 5 years. We have an amazing 2.5 year old daughter and just found out last week that we are expecting baby #2 I am due June 12 (according to the online due date predictor). My birthday is June 19, so that would be awesome! I have my first doctor appointment on Oct. 21 and I can't wait! I kind of want that assurance that yes, you are pregnant, and yes, everything is ok. The only symptom I've had is the sore/sensitive breasts and some light cramps last week, but they have since gone away. And I'm SO tired!

    Hello Kristin! I just wanted to say "welcome" again.

    Just ten more days until your first appointment. Do you think you're having another girl, or are you guessing boy this time?

    We've only got a few June Mommies so far, but this thread will be picking up soon.

    Try to sneak in naps if you can to help with the fatigue.

    I'm with Kristin...I still can't believe it! My husband and I have been together for 4 years, married for almost 2 (new year's eve!). We have an almost 3 year old son and we are now expecting number 2. We are so excited, as is DS.

    We're in the middle of moving 3 hours away, so I don't have my first appointment set up becuase I don't even have a doctor yet! I'm kind of bummed about having to find a new OB, because I absolutely LOVE mine. I'm almost willing to make the 3hr drive to my appointments. We also have to wait for DH's insurance to kick in, which isn't until Nov 1. So I am anxiously awaiting that first appointment. With DS I had my first appointment at 6 weeks, so this is like torture for me!

    With my first I kind of had the feeling it was a girl--not sure why. And with this one, I keep thinking boy...but maybe it's just because we already have a girl. Either way, I'm happy

    I have to change doctors, too! My doctor moved out of state, but at least now I get to have a woman doctor...I kind of prefer a woman I'm excited to meet her next Friday.

    I can't even remember--what do they do at the first appointment (I'll be six weeks)? It's mostly paper work right? Will we listen for a heartbeat, or is that too early? I asked my husband if he wants to come, but if I remember right, the first one doesn't have much going on.
    britt200408 replied to Cowgirls19's response:
    I think a lot of it depends on your particular doctor. I know when I was pregnant with DS, I had an ultrasound and heard the heartbeat at 6 weeks. But my SIL is pregnant now and had her first appointment at 6ish weeks and didn't get an ultrasound or to hear the heartbeat until 10 weeks. And her doctor normally only does a 20 week ultrasound, but she got an extra one at 10 weeks because they had to check her cervix or something. My old doctor did like 3 or 4 for me. So I'm not completely sure what to tell you! haha paperwork for sure, maybe hear the heartbeat, and if you're really lucky you can have an ultrasound.

    Yay, a June 2012 club! My EDD is June 10... but I'll probably go early because I have 2 uteruses. But I'm hoping still in June, just because that sounds right to me! Hurray for us!

    This is my first and DH and I tried so long and so hard for this pregnancy My first appointment is with the fertility specialist at 8 weeks (but no, we did it naturally incase you're wondering)... then I have an ultrasound booked for 9.5 week check-up. I really hope we can hear the heart beat then, that would be incredible!

    Hi My name is Carrie and my husband and I have been married for 6 years and this will be our first child.
    My EDD is June 11th and my first appt is Nov. 14th.
    Since this is my first child, I am still worried about a miscarriage and when to tell people, but all around very excited!

    Not sure what to expect at my first appointment?
    PetersPan replied to atrilisk's response:
    Hi Carrie, Congratulations! We're due so close together

    I booked my first appointment for November 10th and was told I'd be having an ultrasound and IPS testing. I don't know much about the IPS testing but the nurse on the phone said it was important for determining the chances of neural tube defects. So I know to expect that much! Otherwise I'm in the same boat... taking this as it comes.

    As for timing, DH and I are waiting the full 12 weeks before we break the news to friends and family. I told my boss only because I didn't want her thinking badly of me falling asleep at my desk or taking lots of bathroom breaks!

    Hi I'm new to this. I am so excited to be pregnant again. Had a miscarriage last December, so I'm a little nervous since it happened at 6 weeks. I'm due on 6/5 according to my doctor. Already had my first prenatal appointment and am getting an ultrasound perfomed on Monday. Me and my husband can't wait to tell people, but want to make sure we hear the heartbeat first.

    So many different symptons than before. For the last three weeks, I can't sleep more than 3 hours at a time and I wake up really early.

    My name is Alex. My fiance and I are expecting our 1st baby June 19th. We are very excited! We "tried" for 6 months and on the 7th month (When we stopped trying) we got Pg! So it was kind of a shock and took me a while to believe it! :> The only symptoms I have had is REALLY SORE breasts and some cramping last week. But the cramping is gone.. painful boobies.. still there. I have a doctors appointment Oct 24th to meet with the intake nurse then hopefully I will see a doctor soon. Hope all you ladies have a happy and healthy 9 months!

    Hi Ladies!

    My name is Lauren and I just found out I am expecting this morning! It has been such a long journey... I have a beautiful 4-year-old daughter and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant again since she was about 2. I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks in June 2010 and have been trying to get pregnant again ever since. I tried 6 months of Clomid, but it did not have any effect on me, so I took 2 months off - and here I am pregnant! Guess I didn't need the medicine after all!

    The craziest thing is that my daughter was born on my birthday, and the due date for this one is the SAME!! June 21, 2012. That would be such a miracle if I shared a birthday with both of my children!!

    Congrats to all of you and I cannot wait to go through this experience with you all!

    Hello June mommys,
    My EDD is June 12th!! I was a bit shocked to find out we were expecting since we were told we would have trouble having children. I have two boys an 8 year old and a 6 year old from a preivious relationship. Im a bit nervous about how my boys will take to their new lil brother or sister since it has been just them for so many years. Im very excited and nervous at the same time. It has been so long I almost feel as if this is my first pregnancy!! I hope everyone has a healthy next 8 months

    Hello everyone! I'm Emily and my husband and I have a three year old and are expecting baby #2 around June 6th. My first doctor appointment is Nov 17th and we are very excited!

    Hi fellow June mommies! Congratulations to you - to us all!

    I just turned 36 on Sept 30, and had my annual physical the same day. I asked my Dr. about maybe trying something to help us get pregnant, not knowing that I already was!!! I got a test on Sunday the 9th of October, so I'm about 5 weeks now.

    DH will be 41 in December, and on New Years' Eve, we will have been married 13 years. Our oldest daughter is 8 1/2 and loving 3rd grade, and our youngest daughter is 4 1/2 and loves preschool.

    I just am so excited for #3, and truth be told - would be totally ecstatic about a boy. But just as long as the baby is healthy, we will be happy.

    So congrats again - let's all have a healthy & happy 9 months!
