Age: I'll be 30 when the baby is supposed to be born
Location: Kenai Peninsula, Alaska
How long: it's been one year since our loss (Oct. 2010)
What number child? second
Family: DH, DS, and that's it. Not even a goldfish to speak of. We are wanderers of sorts...
Birth plans/ preferences: VBAC. Not easy where I live, so I'm crossing my fingers.
Thoughts/ Sharing: I'm a little nervous about joining but I figure lurking is creepier. I haven't actually had a positive test yet, but that's par for the course with me (see my getting pregnant with my son story here; he had to be confirmed by ultrasound in my third month). So I've flunked two tests to date, but have all the symptoms and am totally sure I'm PG. Just entered the 7th week. So I'm joining. However, I had a pretty devastating m/c (aren't all m/cs, though?) in October of last year; it died at 7 weeks and I had to have an d&c at 11 weeks because I didn't pass it. It was a long time to be pregnant and not at the same time, so I'm a little nervous about that, especially the next few weeks.
On another note, you guys are the only people I can tell, but I'm sure of the sex and I've been told (in my mind, somehow) the name (which is not necessarily how I would have set the name up, but there it is). I'm not really that kind of person, that gets "spoken to" (cheesey) but it is what it is. If I make it to 20 weeks and the gender matches what I've been told, I'll tell you all her name.
