I just joined because I was reading through posts yesterday and this seemed like a really awesome, really supportive place.
My name is Lindsey, and I'm due on November 10th with my first, a little boy. My husband, Collin, and I are both very excited and looking forward to meeting him. I am already MADLY in love with the little guy. He is an extremely active fella, kicking and squirming all the time. I feel him moving almost constantly and my husband has been able to feel his kicks almost as long as I have, even though I have an anterior placenta which should be dampening things a tad. I can't imagine how much stronger the kicks will be as he gets bigger, but I'm enjoying the heck out of them right now. :)
I am planning to (hopefully) have a natural hospital birth. Although the universe threw a wrench into those plans when I just barely failed my glucose test. So I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that everything will go smoothly from this point forward...both for the baby's sake and so that I can have the kind of birth I want. Up to now everything has been sort of perfect with this pregnancy. TOO perfect, I guess.
I am originally from Montana but moved to the San Francisco Bay Area about a year ago when my husband got a good job here. So I've been feeling a little lonely during this pregnancy. Especially missing my family!
Looking forward to getting to know you all better!
