Hey all! There aren't many of us here yet but that's sure to change soon :-)

 

I've been lurking on these boards while planning/trying, so it's exciting to join up and find my tribe!

 

So, let's introduce ourselves: I'm due early March/late Feb, I have one daughter (almost thirteen) and one son (just turned two), we're in Tasmania, Australia  -  it's midwinter here now and I'm COOOLD!

 

Looking forward to hearing about my fellow March mamas :-)

Hi. I'll have this baby probably sometime in March, but I'm not sure exactly when since I wasn't charting and haven't had a menstrual period since my last pregnancy (that ended in miscarriage). I know we conceived after June 7th, and I got a BFP on the 21st, and with both of my two kids going past their due dates, I'd put money on this being a March baby, lol. My two other kids are 5 and 2 years old.

Hi everyone and CONGRATULATIONS!!!

 

Oh, this is so exciting! 

 

We've been planning this pregnancy for about a year. I graduated in April with a BS in Graphic Design and had my IUD removed that week, and four days ago I got a BFP!! Yay! The due date according to my calculations should be about March 4th. My birthday is March 10th, and I am secretly hoping the baby will be born close to my birthday.

 

This is baby # 4 for me, and the first for my boyfriend. I was married for eight years and went through {my second} divorce four years ago. I met Jason three years ago, and had no idea I would fall so madly in love with my true soul mate, that I would want to get pregnant againjoy.gif. Amazing how we change... But, I won't get married again, I feel no need to do it. Don't judge me. 

 

This is going to be such a blast!! Jason has never done any of this before, and I am excited for him to hear the heart beat, feel the first kicks, and watch our child come into the world in our home (my first home birth!! yay!!).  

 

Cant wait to get to know everyone... It should be a fun 9 months!

Congrats! My EDD is March 4 too! I think it will be born in February though, I got a reading from Ruby/Christina at TTCBabylovePredictions 7 months ago? and we have been trying to avoid this whole time - I did it for kicks. She said we would have a baby girl and conceive or find out in Jan/Feb 2012 OR be born in Jan/Feb 2013. I laughed and was skeptical, especially as the months passed. Laugh is on me, though! I did go early with DD, and on his EDD with DS (I chart and knew the dates of ovulation with both) so it is possible!

 

Homebirth is AWESOME! Seriously! I loved my homebirth with DS, just not sure if it will be an option this time due to insurance and I am higher risk this time. I am hoping that the birth center will take me.

I wasn't married when I had my first child. I mostly got married before my second child so that I could get on my husband's insurance, lol. I think marriage is a very individual choice. Most mamas my age (in their twenties) are not married, so I don't see it as a big deal.

Both of my kids were born in February, so part of me would kind of like another February baby.

 

My insurance doesn't cover midwives, period, and I really don't want to give birth with an OB, so we will pay out of pocket, hopefully, for a homebirth. However, we have a LOT of big ticket purchases this year: we are searching to buy our first home and buy a minivan before this baby comes. Hopefully, it'll all work out.

Yeah, we paid out of pocket with DS and it was amazing. I don't regret it at all, I ended up having some big health issues due to pregnancy after his birth though, and when all was said and done, we ended up paying over 6 grand for the birth, ouch.

 

We have a 5 seater SUV and can do 3 across for car seats, but we won't be able to transport anyone else - eventually we will need a bigger vehicle.

Hi and congratulations to everyone! I'm going to go ahead an jump on board. Well, I think 5 bfp's confirm the pregnancy winky.gif  Looks like my due date is also March 4, but if things are similar to ds's timing, it will be more like the 10th.  So yes, this is my second pregnancy. We've been trying since about March, so it's really excited to get the news. I broke it to dh last night as part of his anniversary gift (ours was last Thursday). I'll probably end up breaking the news to the rest of my family a little earlier than I'd like to, as we're going on vacation next week & I'm sure they're going to be suspicious when I'm not drinking. 

 

We're also looking into having a homebirth this time. I had ds at a stand-alone birth center, but I'm really feeling that a homebirth would be a wonderful change. Plus, I've just started working as a doula and am contemplating going to midwifery school, so I think that maybe I should actually experience birth in the setting that I'd like to work -- y'know?

 

OK, last bit about me. I live in Colorado. I'm 38 & will be 39 when this baby comes. This will probably be it for us given my age. My ds just turned 2 in May, and I can't wait to make him a big brother. My dh & I have been married for 4 years, together for 9. I used to work as a teacher, but resigned at the end of this past school year to stay home and focus on some other interests. That's basically it. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all over the next 9 months.

post #8 of 14

According to my cycle calendar, I'm due in early March as well. This is my second pregnancy, and like the first, is a total surprise! My husband, Nate and I are super excited and happy to be having another baby. I was really hoping for a homebirth this time, but the closest midwife is 40 minutes away, and I don't drive. Nate will have to take time out of his work days to take me to prenatal appointments and doesn't think that he'll be able to take me that far. I can't birth center birth either, because the one here closed down. I'm bummed out about it, but I'm going to get a doula so that I have the best chances of having the kind of natural hospital birth that I want. Congratulations to everyone! I'm excited to hear about all of your journeys through pregnancy. smile.gif

Hello! I am new to this :) so sorry. I am also due March 4th but both my kids came right at 39weeks. DH (Dan) & I have been married for just shy of 3 year (been together 5) we have two babies DS O 2.5 and DD Sof 16 mo. All three of our babies have been wonderful unplanned surprises :) We too are shopping for a minivan now (much to my husband disliking) but to fit three car seats it seems the most economical way to go being that when this baby is born we will have three kids three and under! :) 

 

Congrats everyone!!

Howdy. Im actually due Febraury 27 but on the off chance that I go late (like DS4) Ill hang out here too if that is ok?  This will be our 6th child and I'm really nervous/excited/scared/hopeful you know the normal 

congrats to everyone. for me the morning sickness has already begun but other than that I don't feel pregnant.

post #11 of 14
Yeah! I guess I'm here now! After 2 losses, I pretty nervous, but I'm tired of living in fear, so I'm embracing this pregnancy, come what may!

And, it helped that I had a beta HCG done today and it was 517, which is a nice high number for 15 dpo!

So, I guess I'll be due about March 6th, but it depends who you ask (ovulation date vs. LMP date)

Hello All,

 

Boy there are a lot of us due March 4th, must have been the moon! LOL. My DH and are extremely excited. I have one step son 8, and DD 4 almost 5. We are hoping for a boy but really don't care either way. We pray for healthy baby that would be all we could ask for. I live in Washington, I love to run, play with my daughter, do crafts and DYI projects for our new house. I look forward to getting to know you all and our little nuggets. Yay for March babies!!!!

Hey ladies... 

 

I am "due" 3/20/13.  This is my 5th pregnancy.... my first two were great and I have a 4 year old son and a 2 year old daughter.  In 2011, I had two miscarriages (one at 12 weeks, one at 6 weeks). We waited 5 months before trying again and then it took a few months before we got our BFP.  

 

Praying for a "sticky" baby this time.  So far so good!  :)

I'm about to start another school year and our school is making some BIG changes for next year which has everyone stressed and excited. My baby boys are turning into little boys and even one big boy right before my eyes! I am almost one semesters away from my Master's degree, which I started a year before the twins were born! 

 

It seems I'll be due March 11th, which was my Grandpa's birthday :) I haven't been to an OB or midwife yet, mainly due to time and money and complete denial. Also ...I had the copper IUD in and we think it found it's way out to make room for this baby. That would make me 3 for 3 pregnancies on birth control!! I would love to see a midwife again but I'm not sure if she will see me if I plan for a VBAC which in FL will have to be a HBAC which might make my mom pass out. Not sure if I'm telling anyone my birthing plans!! I LOVED my OB for the twins but really want a natural birth again.

 

I'm kind of freaking out about having 4 children! What my husband will do .. he does not want to be a SAHD after they turn 1. He is actually about to embark upon a career changing endeavor and I don't want this to sway him away from his dreams. I'm nervous this baby won't stick around, that my CS from the twins makes my womb inhospitable. What will our family say? How can we afford it? What if it's another boy?!? So many things bouncing around in my head.... But, I loved being pregnant, even with the twins. I love babies. I love nesting. I'm really thinking this could be a little girl. I really hope this is a little girl! I'm not sure I'll make it until September! DH doesn't want to tell our families until then!
