Katherine


2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)?
This will be #3


3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...?
Married since '02


4. When are you "due?"
I'm going with October 20th


5. Do you have any names picked out?

Names are not so much DH and my strong suit.


6. List 3 facts about yourself.
I'm a SAHM, I'm a handbell director and I feel very lucky to have the life I do.


7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?
The last one was our last, so I'm guessing I'll go with last again.  :)


8. Do you have any cravings yet?
Mostly for cheese, which is unfortunate since I'm allergic to milk.


9. What is your plan for the birth?
Unless a miracle occurs, a c/s


10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins?
Secretly hoping for twins.  My two older boys are so close, I'm really worried about changing that dynamic.


11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc)

12. What state do you live in?
NC


13. Do you have any hobbies?
I used to have hobbies, now I have kids.  :)

I do read, cook, garden, knit, sew and spend way too much time playing games on Facebook.


14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?
About 7.  I could tell I was pregnant about two days after our birth control oops.  Yesterday I finally convinced myself it was all in my head and today, well, here I am.  :)


15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.

I told DH and a couple friends that I was hoping would help me find a decent OB.  Otherwise we're waiting, at least until we hear a heartbeat.  DH wants to wait longer, but I'm not sure I can.  I think everyone that knows us will be shocked and think we're crazy.  We just finished painting the nursery and turned it into DH's office during Christmas break.  We also have had a terrible time with food intolerances with both kids so far, so I'm sure that will just add fuel to the fire.

6. List 3 facts about yourself. I work full time. I'm PTO president. And I had what some would say was a very glamorously adventurous life before kids.

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? I'm 42 and had those perimenopausal wacky periods. It's all in God's hands on that one.

8. Do you have any cravings yet? None yet. It's more a lack of craving for junk food, highly sugared stuff or spicy stuff.

9.  What is your plan for the birth? Currently exploring homebirth and birth center. 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? Doesn't matter I've given away EVERYTHING! No hand-me-downs left!

We're waiting because...you never know what happens. ETA: I told dh via text message because he refused to look up from his computer, lol.

post #73 of 205

1. What is your first name? Amy

 

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? As far as I know, no little kids running around claiming me as momma (but there was that one spring break).  Kidding!  This is our first!

 

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? Married

 

4. When are you "due?" Somewhere around the middle of October.

 

5. Do you have any names picked out? Ha!  No way!  Our last name is May, so we've ruled out a few categories though:  No additional anagrams (Amy May --> Mya May = NOT HAPPENING.  No months (August May, June May).  No rhymes (Ray May, Kay May etc). 

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself. I'm training to become a midwife (and a doula).  I've run 8 marathons and 22 half-marathons, and the hubs is a runner too.   I can write with both hands at the same time, with my left hand writing in mirror image.

 

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? First of many, God willing, this is definitely not the last!

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet? I can't tell.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth? Planning on a homebirth, hopefully after hours of walking in the parks next to our house.

 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? I feel totally guilty for saying this.  Girl.  Eventually, a few of each, but I keep thinking about her hair....

 

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) My husband and I are a mixed race family, so we're obviously a little biased about the beautiful children we can't wait to have... As long as they're a little of him and a little of me, who cares who gets what?

 

12. What state do you live in? MA

 

13. Do you have any hobbies? Blogging, cooking dates with DH, running, reading, knitting, arts & crafts, traveling, writing, playing piano.

 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? Just one.  I peeked early too (before the 3 minutes), but while I was washing my hands, I definitely saw that pink line!  I keep checking it to make sure I didn't imagine the lines!

 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. I told DH immediately, and now, you all know.  I told another old friend who is TTC (we're stalking each other's charts), and I told a pregnant colleague/neighbor/friend.  One of my classmates picked me up yesterday for our class and she peed the minute she got to my house, and I bragged about how many days I'd gone without coffee.  Very quickly, we got it out in the open that BOTH of us are preggo!  I'm not sure when/how to tell family, but that'll happen pretty quickly.  It's only been a few days, and it is still surreal.

How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?  First, I peed on one for the heck of it a few days before my period and nothing showed up, (control or otherwise) so I tossed it thinking it was defective, went to work.  When I came back, low and behold there were two lines.  About twelve hours had passed, so I went down the street and bought a digitael.  It said 'pregnant'.  And maybe I have peed on a stick every day since for the heck of it...

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.  I'm waiting a bit.  I told my boss, but no one else.  I'm waiting for it to sink in.
