Hello Moms! Can I join in?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
We are expecting another little bundle early May!
We have 3 boys - a 6 year old and 3 year old twins. I joined way back when I was preggo with my oldest and was extremely active on here. That slowly faded after the twins were born...hmmm...wonder why?

I may not be super active, as we are a busy household. But wanted to join in. I was very involved with my oldest's sons DDC and we carried on threads for several years - made some great online friends.

I had all my boys naturally (and nursed them all too) - my oldest was a hospital, midwife waterbirth. My twins was a hospital midwife birth - they wouldn't allow me in the tub due to 'high risk'. HA! After 48 hrs of labor - I showed them what a woman can do. My birth story is on here somewhere if you'd like me to link to it. So I am looking forward to another natural birth with this one. We had a quick early ultrasound to rule out twins again, as my twins were completely natural and a total surprise as I didn't find out until almost 20 weeks pregnant. So this time, I wanted to know. Just one little precious peanut!

Hope to get to 'know' you all soon. I guess I am one of the veteran moms, so I'd love to offer support or advice to any first timers. I know how anxious it can be.

Hello, Mama Bear! How long have you known you were pregnant this time?

Hi Mama Bear! and congrats!!

I'm not very active around here either - though I'm hoping it's just temporary - the nausea has me feeling a bit like a zombie right now and I don't always have the desire to do much more than drool into my pillow, much less stare at this bright screen!

Found the birth story:

I knew pretty early on this time that I was pregnant. We've been charting/NFP for over a year. My luteal phase is always 13 days long, so when I was on day 14, 15, 16 and no temp drop - I knew. Hubby was out of town - I took a test I had left from the twins. Positive right away. I waited to tell him until he got home 2 days later. He freaked out and was a zombie that whole weekend. He's warming up slowly, hoping and praying its a girl. Though the nausea has been rough on him, I crash at night and he has to take over with the 3 boys. And now right as I am feeling more normal, we all get sick. I have a horrible cough/congestion that just won't go away. It sucks. No family here and hubby is out of patience. Fun times...didn't mean to turn this into a vent. Its been a challenge as this was a completely unexpected pregnancy.
I have a sitter coming over tomorrow so I can rest a little, which I should be doing now.

Welcome! I am a twin mom too. Mine are 2 and I have a 4 year old so I have no idea what you are talking about when you say 'busy'. Mine were all nursed and natural births too!
