Buzzer Beater, this is YOUR thread! We'll ask questions for you to answer and you can add in anything else you'd like to share about yourself, your pregnancy, and your family. Anything at all!

Other June mamas, ask any question you like, it's all fair game. Of course, our spotlight mama can decline to answer anything that makes her uncomfortable

These first few are from our intro thread, so we can all remember who you are!

Name: Sara
Age: Old, really really old.
Location: Beautiful Montana
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH, DD18
Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): none... DH wants a boy
Names you like: not really any yet, boys names are especially hard.
Birth Plans/Preferences: Homebirth!
Anything else you'd like to share: I had an egg donor transfer on 9/14, due to ovarian failure... they're tired at my age!

And a few more so we can get to know you better!
What number pregnancy is this for you?
Have you spilled the beans yet? If so, any stories to share? If not, when and how do you plan to?
Occupation:
Hobbies/Interests:
Share one weird/interesting fact about yourself:

Have you spilled the beans yet? If so, any stories to share? If not, when and how do you plan to? We've told very few people so far... just told my mom yesterday and thankfully that went well. She's 82! DD doesn't know yet.

Occupation: Not employed at the moment, thanks to the economy, and I'm not complaining. Some days all I have the energy to do is be pregnant.

Hobbies/Interests: gardening, skiing, hiking. my favorite thing to do is scuba, but not much chance of that around here.

Share one weird/interesting fact about yourself: hmmm I'm not too weird, but I do naked snow dance every year on the back deck and it works.

How do you think your daughter will react? When you are working, what do you do? And based on your screen name, are you a basketball fan?

I have a friend who did a summer internship in Montana. It is beautiful! Although it seems to snow a lot!

I _think_ my daughter will be excited... I want to tell her in person, so have to wait til she comes home from school at Christmas, and that seems soooo long to keep it from her.
When I am working I have done assorted things, most of my adult life I owned a retail business, and recently did therapeutic horticulture with disabled adults which I loved... I have no clients now. I'd like to go back to school and get my master's in hort.
Oh, and no basketball, I was hoping to beat my biological buzzer with my own eggs, but didn't work out that way. A bit of a cocky screen name for what it meant and me being in my 40's. But I was hopeful!

I think that's a neat screenname. Sorry you weren't able to "beat the buzzer", but it's still wonderful that you were able to get pregnant. Do you know the donor?

We don't know the donor... just read about her and saw her pictures up until about 8 years old. She's 24, and I am very thankful for her. Luckily, we got pg on our very first try.

Oh, I am just so jealous of where you live. I don't really have a question per se, but I'd love for you to describe where you live. Even if it's the city, it's still cool.

Well we live in a small town, nice college town where dh works as a professor. You can see mountains 360 degrees around us, and we can be on the (downhill) slopes in 20 minutes, or my favorite cross country with a view. We're also spoiled by being about an hour and a half from Yellowstone, and we ski down there a dozen or so times a winter. I think our town is a bit conservative as is most of Montana, but the people are lovely and look out for each other. I vistited here in Jan '93 and had moved here by May from Seattle area. It's a great place to raise kids. My dh is from upstate ny.

One of my sorority sisters in college's mom had a baby while my friend was in college. We all thought it was fantastic!

I am glad it worked for donor eggs.

Physically I am quite tired compared to the first time, but I feel so much better on the morning sickness. I had hyperemesis with dd the entire time.

I feel a lot more secure about labor and birth... I didn't know a thing, didn't read a thing with dd and ended up induced, 3 days of labor, 4 hours of pushing, c/s. Pretty much ruined my marriage as my husband badgered me to sign the papers for surgery and finally walked out on me. This time I have read everything I can about vbac and have a very supportive dh.

I'd like to think so, as we have a positive image of Alaskans here, sort of a frontier mentality and strength even for the city people. We're also proud of the beauty and bounty of our state, but I can imagine there is no more gorgeous place in the US than Alaska! If you love mountains that is...
