I'm Jessica and EDD would be 7/28. This will be baby #4 (well, actually baby #8 - we've lost four pregnancies). Planning my first home birth and probably another water birth as well. BTW, Alyssa, I also have three boys :)
Yay!!! July 2011 is here!! Roll Call!!! - Page 8
Hello! I'm Sara Jane, 35, married to Jeremy, 32. Our 3 y.o. brother cats are expecting another human on July 5, 2011. We are grad students in Manhattan, orginally from Ohio/Oregon & Idaho. I'd hoped for a home birth but I might end up doing midwife or even OB hospital birth with a doula. We shall see... all very exciting... and totally overwhelming!
This is my first post in this DDC & I haven't read all the other responses yet, but thought I'd go ahead and jump in.
I'm Anisha (26) from NC and my EDD is July 28th. (Actually, the midwives say the 24th...but they're wrong ) This will be # 2 & DS is 18 mos old. We're planning to go to a freestanding birth center, but so far, they're annoying me with lots of red tape, so there's a pretty good chance we might go with the same midwife/OB practice as last time (hospital delivery.)
So excited to be here!
it's time to reintroduce myself here at mdc. my name is jessica. i became a member years ago when i was expecting my second child, who is now 8 years old.
i am now 7 weeks and 5 days pregnant with my third child!
i am so excited to be going on this journey once again and watching my body change so quickly this time around!
my edd is july 13, 2011
i cant wait to get to know you all! and hopefully i will "bump" into some old friends while i am here again!
Hey all. I'm Gwen. I'll be 7 weeks tomorrow. I've debated about posting or not because we had a loss back in September (at 6 weeks). Estimated due date is July 20th. We've only told two people IRL. We were TTC and are very excited to have gotten pregnant again so quickly after our loss.
It's weird because I had tons of symptoms with the pregnancy that ended in a loss, and I have way less symptoms with this one. I've occasionally felt nauseous and had low back pain since a few days after conception, but that's it.
Hopefully this one sticks
I'm MrsB. First-time mama!
Due July 17, 2011! (I can't believe I just wrote that!!)
Have been TTC for about 7 years. I think extenuating circumstances have led me to be blessed with this baby!
I'm with Hillary, I also live in teh south...and since I don't have central air...am going to be spending those hot summer months standing in front of
the fridge with the door open OR see EVERY movie out there! :-)
Want to birth at home with a midwife.
Okay, I am cautiously going to 'officially' join in here. I've been lurking in PAL for a while. I had two losses this year that have made me wary, and this pregnancy began just a few weeks after my loss in October, so I was worried, but today I saw a little beating heart in there! I really feel like I need to embrace this pregnancy now, even though it still doesn't feel quite real yet; like my luck can't be this good.
Some basic info: I'm 38, and I'm due 7/31/2011. I am hoping this one will be my first living child. I lost my beloved dog this summer, and the house feels terribly empty now. I am sincerely wishing that come July, it will feel a little more crowded in here.
I want as unmedicated a birth as my health issues will allow me. I'll fight for that as much as I can, but I know there will be a lot of battles I cannot win, and I am determined to just enjoy whatever experience it is I get, in the end.
