Add me for beginning of October

EDD: 10/02/10
Name: Aneta
Age: 34
Location: Waynesboro, Pa
What number child: #3
Family: Hubby, DD1-3, DD2-18mo.
Baby's sex: waiting to be surprised!
Names: if boy- Mathias Andrew, if girl- Alina Victoria
Birth Plans/Preferences: natural in a hospital with a midwife, right now not sure if I'll have anybody attending because hubby's job changed insurance companies and the new one didn't enroll anybody due to "unforseen problems" (translation: they didn't do their job on time) so I'm uninsured with a irrate midwife because I had to cancel prenatal appts since I can't pay for them. sorry for the rant.
Thank you for a chance to intro myself.
Update: We finally got the insurance thing straightened out. It turned out my old mw at the hosp. doesn't take this new insurance but a homebirth mw I found in WV does. We really like her. So we are planning our first homebirth. I think all this fuss with the new insurance was a blessing afterall.

Update

So much for my predictions! I was all set to have another late term baby, probably in early October, but no, I have a preemie instead.

Christopher W., despite my predictions, was born in the wee hours of Monday morning, via c-section due to placenta previa and PROM. It was a crazy ride, and very disorienting, but he's here now, and we're both doing fine.
