Hello, all! I've been spending time at another board, which, unfortunately, does not carry the same level of insight and intelligence as the women tend to have here. I'm excited to join this club!
Name: SouthernBette is fine!
How long it took to you to get your BFP: 1 month
What number child is this for you: 1
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH (29), Pug Sebastian (9), German Shepherd Dax (11-12? We adopted him after the cops got done using him to do their bidding. He is the joy of our lives!)
Baby's Sex (hopes or guesses): I FEEL that I am having a girl, and that is my hope!
Names you like (& are willing to share): I love gender neutral names, and my DH's middle name is Graham, which we like for a girl or a boy.
Birth Plans/Preferences: I wanted a home birth, but my stupid town does not offer anyone to accommodate these wishes. I'm still trying to figure it all out.
Blog, website or the like: http://betteandbunny.blogspot.com
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm about to complete my Ph.D. in Textual Studies in May--the dissertation is done!!!--and I've been trying like crazy to find a job. Nothing ever panned out, and I was having some major depression...and...then...BFP! It was an incredible surprise and while I am not religious, I am spiritual, and I feel like the universe has aligned for us. We are vegetarian and plan to raise our baby the same. We love music, and my musician DH has already been making up a baby mix for the child's room. His favorite baby mood music: Mogwai. Mine: Bon Iver. Check them out.
