Hello everyone! My name is Melanie and I'm pregnant with our 6th child!! joy.gif

 

We just found out on Monday that we're having another girl -- this will be girl #5. I try to be as natural as possible but also realize that I need to use doctors occasionally, even though I'm not a fan. I cloth diapered child number 3 and 4 and always nurse as long as possible!!

 

Anyway, look forward to meeting everyone!

 

Melanie

Welcome!

Wow - #6 and 5 girls - that's wonderful! I'm trying to remember if we have anyone in the group with more than 4?

I think all of here are as natural as possible - and for everyone that means something different. It's great to have a diverse group of moms to share things with and learn things from - we all do what works for our family's.

Welcome, Melanie! Congratulations on your 6th child and your 5th girl! Hope your pregnancy is going beautifully . . .

 

I'm pregnant with my FIRST! We've opted out of ultrasounds, so we've got a surprise awaiting us. What an amazing experience this is!

Thanks for the welcomes everyone!!

 

Bostonmummy, isn't it wonderful?? I LOVE being pregnant, even though it's not always easy. This pregnancy has been pretty easy, except for my gestational diabetes. I only had it with one other pregnancy, which is weird.

Welcome, Melanie!

We're in Virginia, too. :)

Congratulations on your 6th little baby. You must have some experience being very pregnant in VA in the summer, which I do not. Any helpful hints appreciated!

Happy Baby Growing!

Yeah one of my DDs was born in the MIDDLE OF JULY and one of the others was born the beginning of October so I definitely can sympathize!!! The only thing that helped me was to stay indoors and DRINK tons of water. I hate plain water so it's hard for me but it really does help!!

Welcome! from yet another VA mom (sounds like there are several of us)!  I'm dealing with GD again this time too.
