Hi! I'm very happy to be here! :)

 

 

  • EDD: 4-4-12
  • Your Name: Joyce
  • Age: 36
  • State or Country: Maryland
  • How long it took to you to get your BFP: about three months or so? (We conceived this one 10 months after the birth of our first, and my cycles had returned around 7 months postpartum.)
  • What number child is this for you: 2 living, 1 miscarriage
  • Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): husband, son, German Shepherd, Maine Coon mix
  • Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): Hopefully finding out this Wednesday! Either will be awesome.

 

  • Birth Plans/Preferences: I delivered our son at our local hospital, and plan to do the same with this one. Son's birth was a really great experience. I was induced after 42 weeks, but my Bishop score was good, and labor proceeded well; other than the pitocin, we had a med-free natural birth. Our midwife and the nurses were all very supportive of natural birth, and did not even blink when I told them I wanted my placenta for encapsulation. They delayed cord clamping, gave us immediate skin-to-skin, and didn't take him away for anything else (including bathing) until I allowed it.  It was really the best hospital experience I could have hoped for.

 

  • Anything else you'd like to share: Our first pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 18 weeks. When I got pregnant a few months later with my son, I was pretty anxious the whole time. I'm usually not a nervous person. I'm determined to get back to my normal self, and I'm trying to relax and not worry - I am pregnant right now, and that's what I focus on.

Hi!

 I'm due mid-April

 I'm Jessica, 39 yrs

This is baby #3 for us (we have 2 boys, 5 and 2) no preference it can be boy or girl

I live in the Canadian Rockies

 I have always charted my temps and got pregnant within 2-3 cycles every time, although I've miscarried twice

First baby was unnecessarean, second HBAC and this one at home in the water with same midwife as baby 2

This will be our last baby, so I'm trying to enjoy it. It feels like it's going by fast! Excited to snuggle & wear one more baby!

  • EDD: 4-1-12
  • Your Name: Amy
  • Age: 34
  • State or Country: Oregon, Portland Metro area
  • How long it took to you to get your BFP: Don't know what a BFP is
  • What number child is this for you: #2
  • Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): husband, DS 1 (age 2), dog
  • Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): I was totally feeling girl with this one, but the ultrasound says boy.  Oh well.  So much for intuition.
  • Birth Plans/Preferences: I delivered DS 1at our local hospital, and barring unusual circumstances, will be doing the same thing.  DS 1 was born on his EDD.  We'll see about this one.  Other than the pitocin at the end (when labor stalled out a bit), we had a med-free natural birth. Having a doula was very helpful though.  The hospital experience was fine. 

 

  • Anything else you'd like to share: I'm surrounded by boys!

Hello everyone!

  • EDD - April 22nd
  • Your Name: Kate
  • Age: 23
  • State or Country: New York
  • How long it took to you to get your BFP: Well to be honest we weren't trying but we weren't preventing it either.  Just leaving it up to fate.
  • What number child is this for you: First pregnancy to come this far.  Had a miscarriage in 2008.
  • Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): My husband Nathan and our cat Tucker.
  • Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): Just had my anatomy scan and it looks like its going to be a boy!  I would have been happy either way.
  • Birth Plans/Preferences: Planning on a natural home water birth with two of the best midwives in the area.  It's been a tough decision as I haven't had much support from my family but I'm going to do what I think is best.
  • Anything else you'd like to share: I've been looking at forums a lot over the past few months and reading what other expectant moms have had to say about anything that pops into my head and I finally decided it was time to join one and ask some of the questions I haven't already found.  I thought the interaction with other pregnant mothers in my situation would be fun.
