Hi! I'm Brandy, my DD is 10-07-10. I'm 28, i live in tx and i'm married to my wonderful husband of 8 years. This will be our 3rd baby after a miscarriage in october of last year. We've been leaving it in the Lords hands for 5 months now. No charting or anything formal just peein on lots of sticks! We have two awesome boys Grayson (7) and Emerson (20 months). This will be our 2nd home waterbirth and we will be thrilled with either a boy or girl but no hunches right now! Still kind of in shock from the BFP! So excited to be here!

* EDD: 10-7
* Name: Katie
* Age: 27
* Location: rural Indiana
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: First try, really. I had a second trimester miscarriage at the end of October and last month was my first real cycle (previous one was anovulatory) We weren't even really trying, ha.
* What number child is this for you: God willing this will be our 4th living child. We also have two in Heaven.
* Family :
* Baby's Sex (hopes or guesses): Don't care at all, I just want a baby in my arms. Too early for me to guess what it could be. My pregnancy with my son was very different from my girls, so we'll see.
* Names you like : Haven't really thought about it.
* Birth Plans/Preferences: My last daughter was a VBA2C, planning on another hospital vbac as long as everything looks good. She was an easy birth and I did it without an epidural, but I'm not philosophically opposed to pain relief. So, we'll see how the labor goes, really.
* Blog, website or the like: I blog at www.justanothercatholicmom.blogspot.com (but fair warning, I'm pretty conservative, very pro-life, and blog a lot about my religion)
* Anything else you'd like to share: Happy to be here, but also really nervous! Hope this baby sticks, I don't know if my heart can take another loss.
