Hi, I'm Rachel. My last period began Jan 31, which puts my due date in early November, I believe. I am 25, will be 26 when the baby's born. I am in the Kansas City, MO metro. I got a + almost a week ago, but so far only my boyfriend, roommate, and massage therapy classmates and instructors know. I'm telling my son and family on Sunday (Mom's bday party). My bf and I were not officially "trying" but I knew I wanted to get pregnant and was doing what I could (namely avoiding any contraception, etc.). I have wanted to get pregnant for almost 6 years now, but my bf and I have been together and "not trying" for only a couple months. I have 1 6yo and live with him and my roommate. I would like to postpone picking out names for as long as possible, and make an official decision after the birth. With ds, I birthed in a hopital tethered to machines with the uncomfortable straps around my belly, and pretty much labored on my back in bed. I got pitocin to get contractions going since my water broke, and ended up pushing for 3 hrs, got a 3rd deg. laceration, and required a blood transfusion. This time I hope for a home/water/natural birth. I have no idea how to do this, so wish me luck!

I would really like to cd as well. I don't have a washer and dryer right now, but we will move to a bigger place this summer anyway, so hopefully that will all work out.

* EDD: November 18th

* Name: Crystal

* Age at conception / Age at delivery:  27/28 
* Location: IL
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: We were less careful about avoiding last month, but this is the first month we really tried
* What number child is this for you: 2
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): I have a great husband who is working on a Master's Degree to change careers (he'll be done the summer after the new baby arrives) and a wonderful 2 1/2 year old boy - Thomas

* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): husband wants a girl, I think a boy would be easier with clothes and all
* Names you like (& are willing to share): No clue!  We didn't name our last until several days after he was born!

* Blog, website or the like: nope
* Anything else you'd like to share: Just really excited to be here!  It's kind of unreal that we'll soon be parents to two kids!
