Hi, my name is Ashley. I am due the 3rd of October. I have two daughters, 11 & 7, two step children 7 & 8, and I had a surrogate son 4 years ago. My husband and I have raised all four of our kids together for the last 4 years, and we consider this our 5th child. We live in southwest Missouri. My husband is hoping for a boy because we already have three girls; I don't care either way and am just looking forward to having a baby. We have lost three babies during our years together, the last one was last April. This was an accidental pregnancy. I had decided that he and I together could not successfully have a baby, and I was not willing to put myself through another loss. Our birth control method was obviously not effective in January I will be 15 weeks tomorrow and finally feel at ease with this pregnancy. We are having a home birth/water birth and nothing will sway that decision. We are extremely excited and ready for this baby! Our youngest will be 8 when this baby is born, and so I am very ready to have a BABY in the house again. This will most likely be our last one!! Thank you for reading this!
