First off, let me just say that I am so excited to be able to write a journal for StorkNet! I have been reading these since I was pregnant six years ago and have followed many of the ladies stories.
With that being said, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Laura and I am 36; my hubby, Dan, is 30. We have 5 1/2 year old boy/girl twins that were conceived naturally after only four months of trying. When we found out we were pregnant, we hadn't even been married for a year. Needless to say, we spent our first wedding anniversary with me 20 weeks pregnant.
We began trying for a third (or third and fourth!) baby when the twins were about 3 years old. We fell pregnant about six months after we went off the birth control. Unfortunately, that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage that was diagnosed at about 7 weeks. The baby just never fully developed. I had a D & C done in May of 2006 and we began trying again in June.
Fast forward to January 2008 . . . I am finally pregnant again!!! It has taken all of this time, but we have finally succeeded once again. I am due September 18, 2008. Now we are just praying this little bean sticks.
So, thanks for taking the time to stop by and read along with my new adventure. I hope you enjoy the ride!
