I'm excited to be here!
this will be our third child, and hopefully our first homebirth (our second was supposed to be a homebirth but had medical problems.)
Hello! I'm expecting a new little one July 24th! This will be #4. I have a 10yo dd, 6yo ds and 5yo dd, it's been awhile! Excited about being pregnant again, nursing and cloth diapering! I'd better get out the Ina May books and remember how to do this :) Also using a doula for the first time. My last was a homebirth, but due to our somewhat remote location and lack of homebirth midwives in our county, this one will be in the hospital, as intervention free as possible.
Add me in too! My numbers say I am due July 22 but I tend to go a bit over so I am claiming July 25. This baby will be born just before DD turns 17!!!!! My youngest is 7 so it has been a while since I have done this. DH and I have decided that since we are going with a SURPRISE theme, we are going to wait until the birth to find out the gender, so that will be a bit different from the last two. Kind of nervous but very excited!
I got my BFP last night - now expecting #2 on July 25th 2011! I thought my EDD might be an August one, but DD#1 was born exactly on her EDD, so I'll stick with the calculator's results now until I know better!
We couldn't be more thrilled! DD#1 was a surprise, and DH was really miserable about it all the way through my pregnancy - no support at all. But this time was intentional (this was only our 2nd month of trying!) he's completely excited. Looking forward to a more positive pregnancy this time!
I am cautious about joining too.....this wasn't planned. My name is Sunnie and I have a 5 year old, and a 2 year old nursling. I think I am due July 15th. The people in this club and I already must have alot in common. Scared of a loss, wanting to exercise, a bit overweight (10 lbs), still nursing. I'm 36 but I don't know if that makes me high risk? I was in the June 2008 DDC and even though I just read alot of posts (i posted a few times) it was a real commune for me. Hope I'll post a little more for this one- and get to stay in. I live with my DH and 3 cats and 2 dogs. I work full time; stressing already over finances/childcare/etc. with the new one. But not as stressed as I have been. This one feels like "OK, it will work out. It always does." I am incredibly happy and hopeful with this new little soul.
hey, i don't know how close you are to Tacoma, but if you are anywhere near there & opt for the birth center, i highly recommend just looking at The Birthing Inn, it's in Tacoma. That's where DD#1 was born & it was AMAZING. if you're nowhere close, sorry to bother you & best wishes. http://www.thebirthinginn.com/index.html

This will be my second pregnancy. DS will be almost 2 when the peanut gets here. I'm 30 and DH is 32. DS was born 8/27/09 after about 3 hrs of laboring at home and 3 hours of laboring at the hospital. He's still nursing and I'm planning to let him wean himself.
We started trying NTNP in November so here I am!!
I would a homebirth but with only one midwife in my area, who I dont love, and no birthing centers within an hour, I foresee an unmedicated, super easy hospital birth. I am an L&D nurse there so...
We cloth diaper and LOVE IT- just PM me if you have any questions about cloth diapering your new little one!!!
Where in WA? I would love to find some like- minded mamas near me!!!
anyone have a good place to find other mamas??
I'm Catie, mom to one almost five year old and still in shock that I'm pregnant with my second. It was a surprise that wasn't even in the back of my mind, but I'm very excited and can't wait to do all the pregnancy stuff again. I'm aiming for a homebirth with midwife (my only was in a hospital) and can't wait for another little one. The timing wasn't the best, but is it ever?
Hi I'm Stacee. Going in tomorrow to have a real test at the doctors office, so I am not for sure yet. My home test was very faint. I am a WAHM to 6 kids and married to my soulmate for 11 years. If I am indeed expecting I will be due July 13th. I will most likely be stuck with a hospital birth as I am high risk, but I will do it as natural as possible. ;0)
All, right, I'm jumping in! I'm glad to know Im not the only "cautious" joiner!
My name is Tracy, DH and I are both 30, and this will be #2 for us!
Got my BFP on Wednesday on an IC, and yesterday morning on an FRER...so I suppose its official! Im VERY excited, but petrified everytime I go to the bathroom that you know who will be starting back at me. I had a chemical a few years back, but have since had a successful, healthy pregnancy that gave us our wonderful, almost 2 year-old DS! We'd been trying since August, and as of now, plan on a hospital birth (hopefully with at least a tub labor). But, our hospital is going through some issues (which I'm sure I will get into at some point) and so a homebirth isn't totally off the table.
EDD as of right now is July 29, 2011. Can't wait to get to know everyone over the next year!
