Kristen appeared to us in her correspondence to be very bright and intuitive about her situation. She believes the changes in attitudes toward single, young unwed mothers is helping. She says, "expecting a baby Jan 1, 1900 under my circumstances would certainly have been TOTALLY frightening, lonely and much more shameful.
When I returned home, without a care in the world, the dr. called me, which was unusual, it was always the nurses who called with test results. The dr. then asked me if I had had my period yet, and I said no! I'm pregnant! I just had a test this morning! He said, I know, none of the nurses wanted to call and tell you, but it was negative. I was totally devastated. I called my husband and he came home from work, then I had to call my friends and tell them I wasn't pregnant, it was horrific.
I can't even tell you. I waited few days, and took another home pregnancy test, it also came up positive, but this time much clearer and stronger, I called the Dr. and he said that I probably had a tumor on my ovary and that's why the tests were reading positive. But, I had a feeling, so without telling anyone, I took the form the dr. had given me the week before, for the second blood test, and I went to the lab and had it drawn. Afew hours later the nurse from the hospital called me and asked if I had taken another test, when I told her yes I had, I was sorry but I had to know, she said, well the lab made an error with your first test, and you are indeed pregnant! "We've called the supervisor of the lab, and it's being investigated! But in the mean time we pulled your first blood specimen and retested it, it came out to be 115 not 2 and your are definitely pregnant!"
I called my husband at work, and he refused to believe me, I had to have the nurse call him! But he believed her! He rushed home, and I started calling the 2 friends I had previously told I was pregnant, then called and told them I wasn't and had to tell them I was again! Everyone must have thought I was nuts! Anyway, that's our story, we also have a pregnancy journal " Thanks for the great story!!
She says, "By my calculations, the due date is January 7th. Of course we all know that rarely does a baby actually come on their due date (statistically speaking only about 5% do). I'm feeling okay. My symptoms came earlier this time around since my last pregnancy which ended in miscarriage, and considering my higher chances of twins since I'm a twin and my husband has a twin brother and sister. This all should be rather interesting!!"
Christy saw a news story about the millennium baby craze and decided to jump in with two feet ( or four feet depending on your viewpoint). Christy recently had a miscarriage. She says she tried for a millennium baby "because we now have the okay from our doctor not because of the the "year 2000." If we do happen to have a baby at that particular time, then great! If not, then that's fine too. Our main focus is to have a healthy, happy baby after what we just went through."
She says, "I think this concept is really neat because not everyone gets to experience a new millennium, as well as the possibility of a new millennium baby. I think it would make our experience even more special."
Kymberli says, "we have been trying since July of last year and were really surprised to find out that we were expecting. And being due on 01/01/00 is just more than we could hope for. What better way to ring in the new year than experiencing the miracle of life!!"

She tells us, "I am due to ovulate around the 5th or 6th of April and we are hoping that this is the month it will happen for us!!!" "This will be our first baby together and we are thrilled with the thought of having our own family, and a Millennium Baby would only make her/him more special!!!! We were married May 1, 1998 so the baby will also be a Honeymoon Baby! We have been trying to get pregnant for almost a year now."
Then on April 18th when I was late, I knew something was wrong, because my body normally worked like clockwork. I went and got a pregnancy test at 7:00 am and when it was positive I went shopping for 8 hours trying to figure out how to tell my husband.
I finally came home from the mall, laid on the bed with my head in a pillow and held the pregnancy "stick" up in the air and told my husband to take it.......After he realized what it was, he laughed and said, "You finally got your wish", because although we were waiting to start trying, I love children and have wanted a baby since we got married 3 1/2 years ago. My first ultrasound showed a due date of January 7, 1999.
After the second ultrasound, the doctor said we were either having a big baby, or it would be due 1 week earlier which is December 31, 1999. We are very excited and nervous. We really don't care what day she comes, we just pray that she is healthy and everything goes okay.
