Getting to Know You - Page 2

post #21 of 205

1. What is your first name? Marie

 

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? 3 other children, girls ages 15, 14 and 8

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? married for almost 13 years(wedding had our two toddlers in it!)

4. When are you "due?" Sept 28 but I always go over 3+ days

5. Do you have any names picked out? no! I can't name a child without seeing it first to see what it looks like lol We also don't find out the sex of the baby, never did with the other 3 either.

6. List 3 facts about yourself. agnostic, homeschool, LOVE dogs(but not little ones as they are yippy and bitey)

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? I am assuming this is my last one! but my last one WAS my last one until recently.

8. Do you have any cravings yet? no

9.  What is your plan for the birth? either homebirth or birth center. i plan it to be very short and painless :oP THe kids want to be there, and of course hub will. And I can't imagine having a baby without my mommy with me. The one hospital in our county is HORRIBLE if you want any kind of birth besides epidural or c-section so if a hospital is needed I'll be going to the hospital north of us. I have never had any problems during pregnancy or birth and I've been eating healthier this time around and actually more active.

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? ugh i don't even care...i'm used to girls, have girl clothes from NB up to about 2 yrs, but a boy would be cool also. I can't pick between another set of girl hormones or a little version of my MIL's sons...

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) my green eyes and hub's red hair. always wanted a red-headed child and green-eyed child. never got either!

12. What state do you live in? South Carolina

13. Do you have any hobbies? reading, music, reptile rescue, veggie gardening, and birth

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? 4 i think, right at the beginning. it was 9 days past ovulation and i got a faint positive, then i bought a pack of digital tests and trusted the positive.

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. Oh yeah, I always tell everyone right away lol What we do is make iron-on t-shirts saying "I'm going to be a big sister!" and take them 'round to the family and wait til people read the shirts. This time was a little different, the little one had the normal "big sister" shirt, the middle one had a "big sister (again)" shirt and my 15 year old's shirt says "What was Mama thinking?" Love it!!  Oh yeah,

post #23 of 205

Nice to "meet" everybody!! I truly couldn't have made it through my first pregnancy with out the help and support of my past DDC Sept. 09... So I am looking forward to a new group of Momma's and Momma's to be to share this time with.

 

Congrats on your Wedding MamaMcbride!

Ida

Married

5. Do you have any names picked out?

None yet, I suppose we could revisit some from our DS, but i have a feeling we'll have a whole new list

6. List 3 facts about yourself.

Becoming a Mom was far harder and FAR more rewarding than I ever could have dream of, I am in the process of starting my own photography business, I am quite addicted to baskets and their nice storage capabilitieswink1.gif

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?

This will probably be our last, but we are holding a "wait and see what the universe brings us attitude"

nope, just hungry all the time

9.  What is your plan for the birth?

I was supposed to give birth at a wonderful free standing birth center, but b/c my water broke at what we thought was 35 weeks 4 days, they couldn't allow me to by law, we had to give birth in a hospital. Lucky for us, we were still able to have a natural birth. So I would love to be able to carry at least to 37 weeks and give birth at The Birth Cottage, with a midwife, as planned. If so, we will most likely have a water birth. Of course we'll see how I "feel" at the pushing moment, ha!

I0. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins?

Secretly, I would adore a girl. DH wants another boy, I will be happy either way.

eyes, brain

Massachusetts

I immediately told my DD-buddy dosergirl, lol.. we were in Sept 09 DDC together, with our kids due only a day apart. Of course my DH.. and I have told my immediate family, and Dr. We'll keep it under wraps for my MIL and the rest of the family until probably 8 weeks.

post #24 of 205

It's lovely to meet everyone. Congrats to all the mamas with new BFPs! smile.gif

post #25 of 205

hi!  I think I will end up straddling 2 DDC-- by LMP I am due 9/28, by OPK 10/1!

 

This will be my 7th child, I am recently out of a second trimester loss (was due May 2010).

 

We homeschool, I have had both hospital births with and without epidural, and a homebirth.  I nursed all my kids 1-2 years.

 

I would love to continue having children until I hit menopause, but I don't know how realistic that is.

 

I have had stress-related food issues since my loss which I think would now be classified as cravings/ aversions since I'm pregnant.  I'm a very picky eater but after losing the baby I "reverted" to a VERY limited menu!  There are only about 5 foods I will eat right now, but they are fairly healthy.

 

I am not sure about birth plans.  Probably hospital with epidural.

 

I will take either gender of a living, reasonably healthy term baby!  Same for features, I don't care as long as the baby is ok!

 

My big hobby is gardening, I am also very interested in  composting and would like to start vermiculture (indoor worm composting) soon.

 

I bought $30 of internet cheapies (about 35 tests) thinking it would take me a while to conceive.  I conceived on the second cycle and had taken about 11 tests between both cycles before I got a faint bfp.  I am continuing to test on the cheapies to see if the line gets darker (it is!)  I'm going to keep testing every 3-4 days to check the line.

 

Due to our previous loss, we're not telling a soul until I'm very well along

I'm happy to be here with you all. I'll try to be around regularly, but I know I'll probably read more than I post. This will be a busy pregnancy for me as I'm working, going to school, mothering, and doing all sorts of silly commuting.
