post #101 of 103

Hi everyone. I'm due 9/29 with my 2nd child.  My first was born underwater at home 5 1/2 years ago.


I am so grateful to be here.  It took me more than 1 year to conceive my first child.  My ex was diagnosed with severe Lyme disease and metals poisoning 4 days after our daughter was born.  After 5 years of suffering, I ended our marriage in June.  In December, I told my boyfriend I wanted to make a baby with him.  In January, I got pregnant.


I never thought I would be able to have another child, but here I am.


8w pregnant.  40 yo.

Hi Everyone! I figured it was finally time to introduce myself after reading along for the last few weeks! I'm Amber, 28, SAHM to 4. We are expecting #5 with an EDD of September 3rd. I have two girls and two boys, so this final baby will be our tie breaker! I'm somewhere between excited and terrified this time around! Really....8 months pregnant in August??? What were we thinking??? I like knitting, photography and reading. We bought a house last summer so I feel like I've spent the last 9 months just renovating and fixing it up to our liking. We won't be finding out the sex, we had a surprise last time and it was really fun for me. I really enjoyed having something to look forward too! My first two children were premature due to pre-eclampsia, my first was born via emergency c-section under general anesthesia (1lb 14oz, 29 weeks). My second was a c-section due to a failed induction at 33 weeks (3lbs 11 ozs). My third, another c-section. This one could have been avoided I believe, if I had stood up for myself, but it was an emotionally difficult time. It still bothers me quite a bit that I didn't try harder for VBAC I'd wanted so badly. My husband left me shortly after the birth of our 3rd (turns out he wasn't the great guy I thought he was!). My 4th child, another c-section, is with my partner, my #4 is his #1 :)   Well, I really enjoyed not knowing the sex ahead of time, I hate the c-sections but knowing I could finally find out if I was carrying a boy or a girl made it a bit more tolerable. I can't think of much else to say except I barely cut back on my coffee consumption - it's my only vice currently and I do enjoy a hot cup to get me going in the morning!

Hi Mommas! I feel like it's time to finally introduce myself! I'm Kim, 29, and pregnant with # 2. It took us almost two years to get pregnant with this one, so I am super excited to be here.

Looking forward to chatting and getting to know all of you!
