post #81 of 89
Hello Ladies,

I'm finally popping in too. I had a miscarriage back in March so I've been hesitant to come in too soon. I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant and my due date is April, 27th.
My name is Laura (41) and married to my husband, Stig (38), and we have a 3 year old son named Gavin and we live south of Denver, CO.
I chose not to have an ultrasound but will do one for my 20 weeks, with the Perinatologist because of my age, just like I did with Gavin.
I had a wonderful HB with Gavin, with a stupid complication with the placenta that didn't want to cooperate, and I ended with an unnecessary hospital transfer which really stunk.
I will most likely have a HB again but with a midwife that has dealt with more births and will get the pitocin shot immediately after baby is born so that I don't have to deal with the placenta issue again.

Hi, ladies! I'm finally coming out of lurkdom after a couple of years

I'm Ashlie (29) married to my love, Steve (32). We have 2 boys, Sage who is almost 3.5 and Aston who is almost 1.5. I am due on April 20! It should be fun since Sage's birthday is May 7 and Aston's birthday is May 9... so it's going to be a busy couple of weeks for us in a few years!

We live in Littleton, CO. I had a natural birth in a hospital with Sage, natural birth at Mountain Midwifery with Aston and now we're going for a homebirth with #3! I'm so excited and can't wait to join in and meet everyone!

Hi,
I've lurking since I got my BFP in late Aug., my EDD is 4/30. I had a miscarriage in April this year . I became superstition for this PG and didn't want to post to the DDC until the 2nd tri.
This baby will be #3, and if I can swing it finacially I want a homebirth.

Hey everyone! Just joining here. I had joined the May DDC because I think I'm due around May 2nd, but I thought I'd straddle both. I'm Stacey, DH and I have a son who is 21 months old, still nursing. I'm currently 11 weeks 1 day. We are planning using our midwife at a birthing center, just like last time!

Hi, I'm new to this group. I haven't been on these forums for awhile now. I'm pregnant with #2 and due one April 11. I tend to get very hormonal and like to vent too much, so I apologize ahead of time. Can't wait to start getting to know you all!

I'm a little late to the party, but that's Ok.

My name is Kel, and my due date is 18 April. I have a 21 month old little viking who totally rocks, and we're hoping that this little one is a valkyrie

I'm hoping this pregnancy goes a little smoother than the last one - I had a bout of shingles in my 2nd trimester, and severe preeclampsia that lead to an an emergency C-section and a 2-week stay in the NICU for AJ. :P

Nice to meet everyone!

Hi! I'm 31 and due April 14th (my mom's birthday!) with my first. We started trying just as we both got accepted to our third degree programs (me for midwifery in Toronto) and DH for a PhD in Montreal so we spent a year apart, and then were dealing with the buying and selling of houses in two different cities and both in very intense programs which didn't help with the baby making. Anyway I'm finally pregnant which makes me happier than I think I've ever been. I'm finishing up year three of four of my midwifery program (in Canada midwifery training is a four year university program and it's direct entry--no nurse midwives here). We are part of the healthcare system which means we're FREE (I noticed someone else wanting a home birth on this thread who couldn't afford it and that makes me so sad) and we conduct births in home and in hospital based on the mama's choice. I'm planning to have this one at home and I'm so lucky to have one of the pioneer Canadian midwives (and another amazing midwife) taking care of me. I should be starting my final year of training right when I'm due so I'm taking a year off and will go back to finish with a 12 month old. Luckily, DH works from home so I can be on call and not have to worry about a little one in the middle of the night (or middle of the afternoon).

 

I'm not big on the whole forum thing usually but I thought I'd check this out.

 

We don't have any pets but we have a big garden in our little yard. 

 

cheers!

Hey ladies! I'm new to the Mothering forums but love the magazine and articles. I am 31 years old, my DD Emmaline will be 4 on March 19th and I'm due on April 26th! I'm very excited, even though it wasn't exactly planned... We were hoping to have our next at the end of the school year, as DH is the computer teacher/tech coordinator for a K-8 school. We live on the midcoast of Maine - one of the most beautiful places on earth, IMO. I am a SAHM to Emmaline and we plan to homeschool. I was in the midst of getting my MA in English when I got pregnant with Emmaline and was totally surprised! We'd just gotten married and I had another year to go. I am so glad I put it on hold and stayed home, but I do understand the boredom/identity crisis that happens at times with us SAHM's. We've got one kitten, named by my precocious daughter, Mittens Alexatar. redface.gif We're fairly new to our area and trying to make friends, which is hard when you're in the early stages of pregnancy and just want to hibernate (and SLEEP!) I'd love to connect with some like minded virtual friends here! I am an avid advocate for attachment parenting and breastfeeding - my daughter weaned when she was almost three and more than a few people thought I was crazy! We also co-slept until about 6-8 months ago - now she's in her own room and very happy.

 

So glad to be here! It's been great to read your introductory posts.

Erin
