I've finally decided to come out of lurk mode and actually join you. I know a few of you guys - 1 in real life and others from around mothering. I keep finding myself wanting to reply to threads and then would realize I wasn't a "member" yet. My DDC from my daughter still keeps in touch, more than 3 yrs after our births - it's pretty wonderful!
I'm 17 weeks and 4 days. Due on October 5th with #2. My DD is 3. We are planning a homebirth this time (DD was born in a birth center). I'm feeling baby move almost daily now and kicks are getting stronger. :-)
Our big anatomy scan is the Friday before Mother's Day. I'm going to have them write the gender down and seal it in an envelope. I plan to open the envelope in a beautiful public rose garden overlooking the ocean on Mother's Day, while my mom is in town. :-) I can't wait to start being able to refer to baby and he or she instead of it. And to start pondering names a little more.
Looking forward to getting to know you guys!
