Congrats!!! What a cute name. Can't wait to see pictures.
This is a funny thread. I grew up in a family of 7 kids and we actually had one of those massive Ford vans. We called it the Flying Tomato and I learned to drive using it. It wasn't very stylish but I survived my teen years. Not sure how many kiddos we'll end up with but I know we'll have more than 2. I'm trying not to think about it right now though, in my last days of pregnancy. My MIL asked me recently how many we wanted and I told her to ask me again when I'm...
Love it! Thanks for sharing.
39 w. 2 d. appointment today. Everything looked good: weight, urine, and BP. Midwife said babe is still kinda floating around but that's pretty common for 2nd timers.

Wow! Sorry about the craziness with your pets but it is probably for the best if you're moving soon overseas. I was curious about homeschooling and those sound like great reasons! I was homeschooled my whole life and will probably do the same for my kiddos at least while they're young. I hear ya on the brainwashing thing. I also tutored in a public school while in college and I can attest to the fact that a lot of time is wasted and a lot of it is just babysitting. Do...
Wow!!! That is amazing!!! I'm going to think of women like you during my labor. If you can do it anyone can!!!!
Congrats on the healthy baby!!! Hope your recovery is speedy!
