EDD: June 24th, though DH is hoping I'll go a little early so the baby will be a Gemini, lol. He didn't want DD to be an Aquarius like a cousin of his with whom he has a tumultuous relationship, and I had DD exactly on his cousin's birthday, so I don't have a good track record of giving DH what he wants in that regard, lol.

Your Age: I'll be turning 31 later this month, and DH will be 35 soon

Your General Location: SoCal, Santa Monica to be exact. Originally from MN but I moved out here right out of high school.

This babe will be child #?: 2

How long have you been TTC:I had my IUD removed in July and then we planned to skip trying in August. At the last minute we changed our minds, but I wasn't charting and didn't realize that I had already ovulated.

Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets): DH and I met while I was studying abroad in Chile. Three days after we met we were engaged, and 3 months after that we had a ceremony in Chile for his family and friends. Then 6 months later we had our wedding in my parents' backyard in West Virginia (I like to call it the US leg of our International Wedding Tour) I was 7 weeks pregnant with DD during that wedding! She was a bit of a surprise, conceived the first day that DH arrived in the US (after a 4 month separation for visa processing) We celebrate 4 years together this December.

.Anything else you'd like to share: Last time I went with a CNM program and had DD in a hospital, free from pain meds but I did need a few hours of pitocin to push me over the edge when I stalled at 8 cm for 8 hours. I think that labor stalled because I had some unacknowledged fear of the pain. I'm hoping to go 100% natural this time around, though I might have to go with a local OB instead of the nurse-midwives, due to insurance issues. We'll see though.

 

I can't wait to get to know you all!

Anything else you'd like to share:  We didn't think this could happen for us, so it's quite a surprise. I tried to conceive for several years via IUI, dr told me I should try IVF. Lo and behold, we're now prego the old-fashioned way! We're excited and have a MILLION questions, but don't want to tell anyone in our circle yet.  

 

I'm looking forward to hearing all of your stories and experiences!

How long have you been TTC:  this one was a happy surprise
Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets): one hubby and five kids ages 12, 10, 8, 6, 4
Anything else you'd like to share:  we thought we were done but I guess life/fate/call it what you want didn't think so. LOL  This will be our first baby with a spacing of more than 2 years so I kind of feel like we're starting over.  We gave away all our baby items and everything.  This time around I want to do things very simply though.  No massive amounts of clothes, toys, gear, etc.  The one thing we do still have is the crib/toddler bed since we only just moved our 4 year old into a big girl bed.  That won't be going up for a good long while though since we co-sleep for the first little bit.

This babe will be child #?: 1!!
How long have you been TTC: since February
Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets):  My partner and I just made it official last weekend!  We found out a week before that I am pregnant.  I have two stepchildren who are with us on the weekends (boys, 7 and 8).  I am a radical/full spectrum doula and am taking a Birthworks teacher training workshop next month so I can start teaching birth classes.  I have been living collectively with 8 adults and a baby for the last year and a half and am continuing to live collectively but now with just 4 adults (plus two kids part time and another baby before two long). 
Anything else you'd like to share:  We have decided to wait a few weeks before spreading the word and I thought getting on here might help satisfy my blabber mouth for a bit :o)
