* Anything else you'd like to share: I was so bummed initially that getting pregnant took so much longer than I expected.  Now I'm just grateful, so grateful, and kind of excited that I've forgotten so much of what I learned the first time - it all feels fresh, new and exciting for me and DH :)


This is beautiful!  Congratulations and welcome!! joy.gif

Maurine, do you mind taking my first name off the list in the first post? I'm totally happy to share it with you ladies, but for privacy reasons (evil google searcher fiends), I'd rather not have it displayed with my username. Paranoid, I know. Thank you, love! blowkiss.gif Did I mention that, compared to other DDCs, our roster thread totally ROCKS!!! Love you, girl!

Done!  And thanks!  You'll always be Tear to me, anyways.  :)  (And my screen name is actually not my real name, either, but a family name...I agree that internet stalkers are not cool!)

OK, welcome!!  :)  We're due date buddies!

post #170 of 323

I am here too! This will be #3, due late August. I HATE due dates. So except for my husband, no one knows our 'date'. The MW that we have dreamed to help us with our homebirth might be on vacation in August, so I have been putting off finding a HCP. I really don't want a hospital birth but I have huge problems with milk supply so I need to find someone asap so I can figure out the progesterone issue.

 

UGH!

Hi!  I'm Amy, due on August 7th.  This will be our 4th babe, we have a 7 yo, a 5 yo and a 2yo already.

Nice to see you here. I admit I was trying to stalk you to find out what DDC you were in. smile.gif

Name: Lyn

EDD: Aug 30th (but may actually be 4 wks earlier as LMP was VERY light)

Age: 38

Location: South Florida

How Long: 3rd cycle after having to prematurely end nursing with DS due to failure to thrive. (And he refused to nurse once he tasted formula)

No Child: this will be our 2nd baby, 3rd pregnancy (m/c 6wks b4 conceiving DS)

Family: DH - Rob (44) & DS - Aiden (7mths)

Birth Plans: Hoping for a VBAC after a failed homebirth with DS that ended up as an emergency CS

Other Info: Last time I tried for a home water birth with a fantastic midwife. Water broke before labor started, so LM could only attend the birth for 24hrs before transferring me to hospital. Another 12 hrs with pitocin and last 3 hrs with epidural and DS was stuck at 8cm and +1. Turns out he turned his head after engaging and got himself wedged. Pitocin did nothing for the contractions, but hospital did everything to try and let me have a vaginal birth. Unfortunately that hospital has a VBAC ban, and is the only local materinty. Plan to go to local doc for prenatal care then travel to our nearest VBAC friendly hospital for the birth (will stay over at in-laws for a few days if needed to be nearer to the hospital.) Excited, but also a little anxious as DS has only just turned 7mths.

Is this where I formally introduce myself?

 

Hi there! I am a first timer mama. I am 24, married to Z, 27. We threw caution to the wind and tried to make a baby and it worked right away. We are so stoked to become parents. I am a yoga teacher and he is a financial adviser (sort of Dharma and Greg like, cheesy but true). We're into living below our means, practicing yoga together, watching geeky movies, and the requisite Colorado outdoorsy things (camping, hiking, kayaking).

 

I am due on August 2, 2011, so 10 weeks along right now.

 

I am so excited to find this community, so far I have been loving all the info on this website. I look forward to getting to know everyone here!

post #177 of 323

* Name: Becky
* EDD: August 6, 2011

* Age: 29
* Location: Olympia, WA
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: I miscarried October 21 and apparently was pregnant again a few weeks later, never even had a period between. With the first one, two weeks after trying.
* What number child is this for you: 1
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Fiance Dusty and my 15 year old cat, Pippin.
* Birth plans/preferences: I'd like a homebirth, but with timing, looks like a Birth Center birth with my fabulous midwives.
* Anything else you'd like to share: Went in for an early ultra sound (because my last "period" was a miscarriage), and hearing that heartbeat and seeing that tiny life has made everything feel okay again. The fear we'd been holding went away and it's wonderful.

8/25 for me which is extra special since that is my Birthday! This will be our second, my DD is 3 years old and we are not going to find out the sex of the baby until the birth...just want a healthy baby and to keep it exciting for DD who refers to the baby as her little sister or baby brother...too cute
