In Our Thoughts

post #2 of 279

-Name: Tara
-Age: 25
-EDD: May 5th
-Location: Green Bay,WI
-1st child/2nd/3rd...: This will be our second child, but our 4th pregnancy
-Family: (partner, other children, and/or pets): Husband - John, DD - Addison (4/07), Mama cat - Twinkie, and her SIX..yes SIX babies....(Frank, Sylvia, Spitfire, Simba, and two more little stinkers that we haven't picked names for...)
-Baby's gender: (hopes and/or guesses): No idea. I think DH wants a boy though as we want at least one of each (we are planning on 3 all together)
-Names: (c'mon, we won't steal 'em): No clue yet.
-Birth plans/preferences: I want a homebirth...whether that is unassisted or with a midwife has yet to be determined!
-Absolutely anything else under the sun: This is my 3rd pregnancy this year....so I am left a bit anxious and nervous. Hoping to just get to hear a heartbeat and I will feel "in the clear"....
post #3 of 279
-Name: Kathy
-Age: 40
-EDD: May 2nd
-Location: Kansas City. Recently moved here from Erie, PA.
-1st child/2nd/3rd...: 2nd child, 6th pregnancy.
-Family: (partner, other children, and/or pets): Husband, son and one kitty named Baby Janey
-Baby's gender: (hopes and/or guesses): dunno
-Names: (c'mon, we won't steal 'em): For a girl we want to name her Margaret (Maggie) Rose. We can't agree on a boy's name. I like Judah and Jonah but my husband says NO!
-Birth plans/preferences: DS was a planned homebirth that turned into hospital because of preeclampsia. I would like a birth center birth, but likely I will have a hospital birth. I am old, overweight and have a complicated obstetric history.
-Absolutely anything else under the sun: I am a nurse and though I LOVE my job sometimes, if this really happens for me, I will be a stay at home mom. My husband is in pharmacy school and this is his final year. He will graduate and I will give birth in May. He went to pharmacy school so he could be a better provider to his family. I really hope we can have one more, we would both be over the moon with joy.

post #7 of 279

post #8 of 279
Name: Almamiel
EDD: May 1
Location: Ohio
1st child/2nd/3rd...:This is #3!
Family: Dp is a SAHD, two beautiful little girls (8 and 6 yrs old), three lovely dogs
Baby's gender: No clue
Names: Nothing good yet

post #9 of 279
-Name: jr'smom
-Age: 37
-EDD: May 3
-Location: IL
-1st child/2nd/3rd...: 4th!
-Family: DH(40), DS5, DS4, DD1
-Baby's gender: Happy with either of course! Hoping for another girl or we'll probably be trying for #5 soon after!
-Names: In the past Jenna Elaine was our #1 girl pick but never used it! Zachary has been our #1 boys pick and never used it! So we are still considering those and knowing us, still won't use them!
-Birth plans/preferences: No idea! I think VBA3C's is virtually impossible in IL. I'm not sure I trust my body anymore (after 3 failed HBs.) Can't find a provider for anything other than C/S anyway. I'm thinking of finding a midwife after 8-12 weeks to do prenatal care until my insurance kicks in mid January, then find an MD I can deal with.
-Absolutely anything else under the sun: I'm an upper cervical chiropractor and homeschooling mom to my 3 kids--although just one is officially school age! I own my own office and have two associate doctors and a wonderful staff! I work three days a week. My DH is a SAHD and does much of the homeschooling! We travel a lot for business and pleasure. I almost always have the whole family in tow even for short business trips.
post #10 of 279
-Name: Liesl
-Age: 37
-EDD: May 2
-Location: CT, USA
-7th child
-Family: H, 6 kiddos, no pets (allergies)
-Baby's gender: really hoping for a boy
-Names: not sure!
-Birth plans/preferences: undecided
-Absolutely anything else under the sun: we are a happy homeschooling family
post #11 of 279
-Name: Sadie

-Age: 29 - but will be 30 in November

-EDD: last week of april/ first week of may. I'm assuming it will be around the 30th or the 1st.

-Location: Arizona. {bummer, I know.}

-1st child/2nd/3rd...: this will be my 3rd child, but I have had 3 miscarriages since my last birth.

-Family: my beloved husband, almost 9 yr old daughter, almost 7 yr old son, 2 stepkids {g-6, b-7} that live with their mom and visit, 3 dogs, and my cat Frederick.

-Baby's gender: At this point I'm really hoping for a girl, because so far my husband still seems to think circumcision is the way to go. My son is uncirc'ed, and I really just don't want to deal with the fallout of me saying 'hell no'... 'cuz I would never let that happen!! {Hopefully we will work this one out in the next few months!}

-Names: really have no ideas yet

-Birth plans/preferences:unassisted waterbirth.

-Absolutely anything else under the sun: my husband and I are both artists - he writes and paints, I make music. He's a manager at a grocery by day, and I stay at home, and homeschool the kids. Therefore we're pretty darn poor.. this couldn't be worse timing {financially}.. yet I can't help being overjoyed.
post #12 of 279
-Name: Lindsay
-Age: 29, 30 on Oct 20th

-Family: Dh, 35, H, 6, and A, 3. Also a dog and 2 cats, and for a few more weeks 4 kittens.
-Baby's gender: Dh would be thrilled with a boy, I'd be thrilled with another girl. Either way we really don't care, just a healthy baby this time.
-Names: um.....too early
-Birth plans/preferences: Planning a third homebirth. Hopefully this one will come at home in our water pool and not super quickly at my mom's house like number 2 did.

-Baby's gender: I'm kind of feeling girl, but really, no idea.
-Names: girl - Josephine, Celia, I really like Ramona, but DH laughed in my face when I suggested it. Boy - really not sure, we had such a hard time picking DS's name!
-Birth plans/preferences: Hoping for a homebirth with the same wonderful midwives. I'd love for my sister to do the catch - she's a newly trained midwife hersself, though she'll be there strictly in sister capacity
-Absolutely anything else under the sun: hmm I WOH, love my job - but sometimes it a challenge balancing everything! I had awful pregnancy sickness with DS and I'm really, really hoping it's not as bad this time around. Midwifery runs in the family - my moms is a midwife, so is my little sister, and I'm thinking of pursuing that path as well! Good to meet you all!
