Hi mamas!! I am surprised to be here as DH and I were feeling pretty done. Life is a bit hectic with 3 girls 6, 5 and 2.5. We were charting and using protection when I was obviously fertile, but the universe has one more in mind for us, I guess. I have a very regular cycle and when I started seeing white, watery CM in the days before my period was due, I just knew it!! I knew something was off. I tested on the day I should have started and got a faint positive. I tested again yesterday and got a pretty dark +. I miscarried in April of this year at 6 weeks, so I am feeling strangely detached from this pregnancy. I am afraid to get too excited.
I had all three of my girls at a wonderful pro childbirth and pro breastfeeding hospital, without meds and with minimal intervention. Their births were all mostly awesome. I actually mourned never giving birth again when DH and I started saving for a vasectomy last year. I still yearned for the less medical, more spiritual experience of a home birth, but my insurance doesn't cover midwife care. I would SO love to see a midwife and have this baby at home. If we can't swing it this time, I may just have to leave for the hospital a little too late. ;)
Look forward to knowing you all! Congratulations!
Oh, and I'm due 7/10
