Here's a thread to tell a bit more about yourself and your family than the bare basics in the roll call thread!
My name is Jessica. I'm 34 years old, and my husband C is 43. We have 3 other kids - a 10 year old boy, nearly 7 year old girl, and a nearly 3 year old girl. They've been asking for another baby for a while, so I'm excited to tell them! I'm an RN - got pregnant with my youngest (before this one) during my last semester of nursing school, which was really awkward timing, but it's worked out well enough. So I definitely have sympathy for anyone here unexpectedly or in bad circumstances, even though I'm thrilled this time around!
We live on a small (3 acre) "farm" in Nevada with goats (including the one in my userpic, who is named Marsha), chickens, rabbits, and ducks. We homeschool the older two kids. I'm currently in the process of enrolling in an RN to BSN program which I'll start in October or November. We're currently in escrow on our property, and planning to build a new house once that finishes (I've had to move during all three pregnancies, looks like this one may not be any different, even if it's just moving across the yard!). It's possible I'll be starting a part-time job at some point as well (wonderful opportunity, hard to pass up), which means I'll also have to learn to drive very soon. And I'm really beginning to wonder how in the heck I'm going to manage all this and do any of it halfway well!
I've decided that babies don't come to me until they can bring the maximum amount of chaos with them!
