Hi!

I'm due at the end of July with my third-I have two boys 4 1/2 and 2 years.  

My first was born naturally in the hospital, my second was born at home.  I'm looking forward to another peaceful birth at home.

 

I live in PA with my husband, two boys, three cats and one dog. :)

Hi! I'm Gisele, due end of July.  This will be number 3.  I used to visit the forums all the time but stopped after I went back to work after number 2.  I always found them a great source of information and community, so I'm glad to be back.

I've got 2 daughters, A who is 8 and R who will be 5 at Christmas.  This time feels so different from the previous two-  I am relaxed about it - I guess that's what experience gets you.  I am setting my intention now for an uneventful pregnancy and graceful delivery.

Hello!  I'm Tiffany, unexpectedly expecting my third.  I have two little boys, Ciaran who will be Five in January and Finnian who is 19mo.  Three was always a possibility for us but I was hoping for a little more spacing.  My 19mo is still nursing (lots at night), I'm not sure how to deal with that.  DS1 was a planned HB turned CS, DS2 was a natural (though rough) hospital birth and I am hoping to finally get my peaceful HB this time around.  Even though is was a little bit of an Oops I'm glad to be here with you ladies!

 

ETA I forgot to say that we are in Indianapolis, I'm 28 and this little one is due around the 20th of July.

Hello all,
I thought maybe joining a DDC would help make this a little more real for me. I just got my 2nd blood work done this morning and the nurse confirmed my numbers are rising but I don't feel pregnant at all.
This is very much a wanted pregnancy, it just doesn't seem real yet.
I'm 33 and expecting #1 and the due date my nurse gave me based on O date is my birthday! July 19th!
I look forward to getting to know you all.

Congratulations dakipode! I just love it when the due dates are significant. This pregnancy is due on the day my mother died. Means a lot!!

Thanks, Garcia. I would've preferred a different month just because DH and I and both his parents all have birthdays within a four week time span! Oh well, this little bean took long enough and I'll be over the moon no matter what day he/she is born!

Hey wrenmoon I'm a big knitter too though I've been slacking lately. I'm thinking though, if this thing is real, I better start working on finishing all those projects I have laying around so I can clean up the house a bit.

Hello! It's nice to meet you!

 

My name is Christine, I am 32, and am excited to be expecting my second biological baby, due the end of July. My husband, Severin and I have been married a year-and-a-half. I have a 13 year-old son, Zachary that I had when I was 19. I don't recommend having children at such a young age, but I'm quite delighted with the young man he is. We breastfed until he self-weaned at 4.5, went to a cooperative preschool where I enjoyed frequent parent education and support.

 

My husband has two step-daughters, ages (almost) 13 (L) and 21 (S) (initials for privacy). He dated their mother from the time the youngest was 2, until she was 6, and she only knows him as "Dad." That he has been giving his love, energy, and resources to children from honor, instead of obligation, truly inspires me. He is the most generous man on the planet.

For us, families are born of love, and this is quite a diverse, and sometimes challenging, adventure. And it's never boring!

 

I look forward to getting to know all of you over the next several months!

 

Love, Christine

Thanks! His whole family is full of interesting names, so I'm feeling a bit of pressure to also name this baby something interesting.

 

Naturally, I gravitate toward Hannahs and Joshuas.

Ooh Hannah... Might have to keep that in mind. I'm such a geek and it's hard to pass up a palindrome. I won't steal it though... Only consider it if you don't use it smile.gif

Hi everyone! I have been reading about you all since this due date group started as I was so hoping to join it. Thrilled that I got a BFP yesterday and this morning. I am cautiously optimistic.

The due date calendar says July 31 but I know I ovulated later than that and had implantation bleeding that started Monday.

My daughter, Evangeline, turned four yesterday; DS, Wyatt, is 2.5.

I told DH this morning when we were reviewing what we are thankful for. I said that I was so thankful that we were bringing another amazing life into the world. It's the best reveal to date for us.

Hi everyone, thanks to those who i have shared with so far making me feel welcome and i look forward to circling around more of you and sharing. I have had many losses, have struggled with concieving and am feeling like my life has become a miracle . I wonder if there are any other women with endometriosis here, as i am very curious what is going to happen with mine and am feeling better already. I cant believe i have gone thru the time of having missed two periods without pain! I couldnt have penetration without glass shattering pain for years and now here i am feeling juicy and coming back to life. In some ways i am feeling conflicted b/c i wanted to get pregnant because i knew it could be good for my condition but at the same time didnt want it to be my "babys job " to help heal me..Oh boy, so much for a simple introduction! I am trying my best to be patient with myself. My EDD may be July 11th, but i am not sure yet how its all figured out. I feel so blessed and i want to do the best i can to prepare for this new life. I have spent my life saving money being low income and have gone to extremes to save to be able to afford the opportunity to be in a position to buy some of the basics to start my family. I am a little nervous about being able to pull it off b/c lately i want to waste money on frozen enchiladas instead of making my own. I would love to learn survival tips and hope that my baby will not suffer or go without . This has been a long time coming for us and i know it will be a long road, trying to take it one day , one step at a time.

Hi, I'm Chelsea, 28 yrs, pregnant with number 2 due mid to late July. 

I've miscarried before so the first couple months are always worrisome. I'm nursing my 3 yo and sore nursing was what tipped me off. It's slowly getting better (or I am just getting used t it lol ) Little bit of food aversion but no morning sickness yet. Hoping this pregnancy continues nicely and smoothly :)
