After ten long cycles of trying, DH and I are happy to be expecting a baby in October!

I'm almost 15 weeks now, and we heard the heartbeat for the first time last week. I recorded it on my phone, which my midwife thought was really funny and smart.

Yay!

Thanks, everyone!

Sylvia, I don't have any real leanings on gender and we don't plan to find out at our 20 week ultrasound.
I have a *very* slight preference for a girl, so I work on the assumption that Baby is a boy.
DH has a *very* slight preference for a boy, so he works on the assumption that Baby is a girl.
But as long as it's one gender or the other, then I will be happy!

WooHoo! Congratulations Ceph!

How's big brother feeling about it?
I know for my son, making a big deal about him being the big brother really helped him not feel jealous. We even put older son's picture in the hospital crib with little brother "so he could see it all the time".

Thank you, everyone! You're all awesome :)

SS isn't terribly excited about it, but he is not unhappy either. He's kind of in a neutral camp.

Remember how BM has an almost-one-year-old? SS knows what babies are actually about, and knows that it doesn't interest him, LOL.
So he's happy, but doesn't have the same misconceptions about how AWESOME having a baby around is as he had when his mom was pregnant. Which I'm oddly glad about - it won't be our baby that disillusioned him :)
