Hi there!EDD: June 6, 2010
Location: Eugene, OR
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Married to Matt, my daughter Kalia is 7, and I have 2 stepdaughters, ages 5 & 2.
Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): Boy, based on the best guesses of two US techs. Also my instincts.
Names you like: Dad is campaigning hard for a Junior. Not sure how down I am with that idea, but I'm considering.
Birth Plans/Preferences: Hospital birth; had my daughter in a FSBC with a midwife but ended up with some complication that now classify me as "high-risk". I am hoping to do it again unmedicated, however.
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm very glad to be finding someone to talk to; just moved here in September and I don't know anyone. Also, I miscarried in August so I'm a great deal more anxious this time than I was with my first pregnancy. Last but not least, my daughter had a major illness diagnosed in infancy (she's okay now), which is not helping my anxiety level.
I'm hanging in there, though, just trying to relax and gestate as peacefully as possible....
