She'll be 5 around my due date though and has asked to watch cartoons rather than watch the birth. I also won't wake her if it's late....
I keep thinking of other names her kids could have. Prescott... Parker... Mesa... Chandler... Douglas... Duncan... Payson... Jerome

I'm a birth photographer :-) I don't know how it happened, but I just ended up falling into that career. I'm having a...
I'm 21 weeks and am still sleeping on my stomach - though, I don't know how. The baby does not approve and is constantly nudging me. I'm going to have to keep an eye on this thread for tips!
I didn't lose it at all with my first. With my son, it was really obvious when I lost it (it happened in the shower - there was no mistaking it). I had him a week later.
DDDC - your title was too good to give up CONGRATULATIONS to everyone involved!

Where are you giving birth, who is attending, are you planning a VBAC or natural birth or unassisted birth, etc, etc, etc! I'm excited to hear what everyone has to say.

My sister has lived her entire life with the initials "BJ." And, she named her son a name that also gives him the initials BJ. Actually, he's BMJ. So, both BM and BJ. It depends on how important the name is to you. Personally, I don't think initials are a huge deal.
DDDC - I don't want to know the gender, but DH does. He's also deployed, so I am having the ultrasound tech get the picture and then I'm mailing it to him sealed. Kind of boring, but I don't know how else to do it without finding out the gender myself!

Well, you could have fun with that On a side note, I've asked the commander at Moody about homebirths on base and he said that midwives wouldn't be considered illegal if they attended a birth on base housing. I wonder if midwives attending births at Ft. Benning or at the...
