I'm Jamie. I'm 31, and this will be baby #5 for me; I have three daughters ages 10, 8 & 4, and a son who is 2. This is baby #2 for DP, who has a 23 year old daughter.
This pregnancy is quite a surprise for us. We had planned on trying for a baby later this year after we get married, but you know what they say about best laid plans...lol. My younger three kids were all conceived with help from fertility drugs after my oldest being a surprise, so we really never imagined it happening on it's own. My DP has now become convinced that he has super sperm...lol.
I am really hoping for a homebirth this time, but IDK if DP would be completely comfortable. Fortunately there is an awesome birth center which literally just opened in the area, so doing my prenatal care through there will leave options open to us. I don't want to find out the sex of the baby, but there's no way DP could stand not knowing, and he's so good and supportive and excited about having a baby again after so many years, that I can't deny him that. It would be great for my son to have a little brother to help even out the odds against all his sisters, but I am completely happy either way-I just want a healthy baby.
I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone as we share this exciting journey together!
