April 2007 Roll Call!!! please add yourself :o) - Page 8

post #141 of 266
Hello all!

Congrats to everyone. My EDD is 4/30 and we're planning a homebirth. We live in NE PA and have a daughter soon to be 3. We're so excited about the homebirth. Marlie was born in the hospital with a midwife and doula and it was a very natural birth, but we're imagining this one to be even more intimate.
No morning sickness yet (knocking on wood) but it started around 7 weeks with Marlie, and I hit that point next week so we'll see!

Cheers!
Jessi

Hello Spring BABY mamas!! :)

I am finally not feeling nauseous today for a little bit, and had PIZZA last night, so exciting.

I haven't been able to eat any milk products for the past week.
Anyhow, I am due on April 10th, which is my sister in law's bday.
It's so lovely to meet you all and see so many women band together on this website. I am so impressed at the support and willingness to share and listen.
MDC does rock.
Best wishes to everyone on the site, I look forward to being in touch often over the next 7 months and beyond!

Wowsers! I had no idea!!!

I had NO idea there would be soo many of you! =)
edd. April 7, 2007 =)

HI everyone,

I'm new to mdc... and thought this would be a good place to find other mommas... hubby and i have been married for 14 years this month. I'm 34, he'll be 36 this month. We are a vegan homeschooling family (ds age 10, dd is 8) THis is my first vegan pregnancy, although I was vegetarian for the others.
We haven't told the kids (or anyone ) that we are prego. I'm due around April 7. I know my daughter is going to be thrilled... she's been asking for a little sister (or brother, if it has to be!) ... My son will grow to love the idea, and the little one, I'm sure.

It's funny because someone in my apartment building is due the week before me, so we've been looking up things online about fetal development.... It has been fun to share that with the kiddies... can't wait till they know who we are actually talking about!

wowsers...

we are looking into a home birth, or possibly midwife at a birth center. Hubby is not comfortable with unassisted, so we need to find a good midwife. I think that is my biggest stress right now. We hadn't really planned this.. we've wanted a baby for awhile, but I didn't actually think Icould get preg.

I dreamt about my first two many years before I ever got pregnant. Hubby did too.
then Last May, I dreamed I was pregnant... And again in June adn July, I had baby dreams...

and here we are!

=)

Hi! I'm Lindsey.
I'm married to Gregg, I have two daughters, Grace (3) and Isabelle (1) and we're due around April 18th if I figured it right w/ the counting from conception. We weren't trying right now so I think we're still on the side of semi-shock in that we're not thinking about it a ton. I have been soooo nauseated the past two weeks though it's impossible to forget. DH seems to have forgotten how crappy it makes me feel though despite me telling him and thinks I should just forge on ahead full pace. :-p

Anyhow, I'm looking for a midwife since my previous midwife who delivered Isabelle has moved on to somewhere else. I am hoping to deliver at Family Beginnings which is a birthing center attached to a local hospital. I had a good delivery there with Issy and hoping a repeat experience. Planning to do a water delivery again since it helped so much!

I'm excited there are so many other mamas. We are expecting baby number 3 due April 29. However, my oldest two were premature born at 32 and 33-34 weeks. We're hoping to go see the OB sometime this week. I'm hoping to have a drug free birth and be able to labor more freely like with pregnancy #2. Being able to move around made such a huge difference. So far I'm dealing with nausea and food adversion but nothing to exciting yet.

While I was open to drugs and just wanted to see how everyhting went, this was not the labor that I wanted. I had horrible back pain from the epidural. I couldn't hold my baby with out support. I was so swollen I could barely walk from them pumping fluids into me for so long even though I was already retaining water! And then I can't forget that the hospital switched my baby and he was giving to another mother for breastfeeding. Luckily she noticed before anything happened. They failed to tell me this. She recognized me a few months later in a restaurant and came over.

So for my next baby we are going natural. Unfortunately there are no midwives in this area and midwifery is illegal in Indiana so I'm having an OB. Its a different one that last time. I've only met him twice so he will be grilled with questions. If necessary I will switch.

So I'm due at the end of April. I'm still breastfeeding DS. Not sure what is going to happen with that. Just winging it right now! Dr is fine with me breastfeeding though!

Hope you all can help me have the natural labor that I want!
Sasha, I am in Indiana too! I will be having a homebirth with one of the many wonderful midwives I know. I am in Indianapolis, but I know midwives all over the state if you're interested. Even if you're not feel free to pm me to chat. It's fun to have someone so close irl that you met on mdc!

Lindsey, you don't happen to be in Seattle do you? That's the name of the birthing center attached to a hospital here in Seattle and where we hope to deliver.!

Welcome newbie mamas!

Hi-
I'm Rachel (29) Dh Brian (27), have 3 boys 10, 9 & 7 and after 3 m/c (1/05, 2/06, 5/06) we are 8 weeks along- and I am really sick, so taking that as a great sign. On a bunch of herbs to help stay preggo.
I'm a montrice and Doula, planning a homebirth with the midwife I have apprenticed with for over 5 years.
This will be my 4th homebirth-- all have been wonderful.
Due April 18th-- though am usually a week or so early.

Hi-
I've never done this before...
Anyway, I am 31, pregnant for the first time ever. My husband I are thrilled, we got preganant a month before the planned starting time, 'practicing'.
I have seen some wonderful women in a midwife practice here in Arcata, CA. They only give birth in a birth center at a hospital, so that's what will probably do.
The little sprout is due in mid-April.
I am bursting at the seams (when I am not so exhausted I can't do anything but sleep) and have no idea how I'm supposed to hold in my special secret for too much longer. At least family and close friends know...
I don't know what all the little abbreviation mean, so I have trouble interpreting all the things people write, but I have found stuff that has been supportive and interesting. I do think mothering is a fantastic publication....
Hope to hear from other mother-to-be in April!

Congrats on the "early" pregnancy!

The really nice thing about the DDC (due date club) is that you can talk about your pregnancy here while it's still a secret in the real world, off line!

Joining you all!
My name is Donna, I am due with baby #9 the end of April. Homebirthing, maybe in water, maybe not.
post #155 of 266
Hooray, I can finally "out" myself and join! I've been posting around here for a few days but didn't want to change my sig or post in the DDC until we got the confirmation. We had our first u/s today... twins!!

A brief history: As my signature says, my son Jackson has Krabbe disease which is a (rare and horrific) genetic disease that DH and I are both carriers for. In order to avoid passing the disease on to another child, we chose to do IVF/PGD and test the embryos prior to transfer. We transferred 2 completely unaffected/non-carrier GIRL embryos and they both took! I'm 7w1d today, due date is April 30 - which I hope to get very close to.

I feel like I'm about to have 3 miracle babies now - first my son in surviving the horrible disease he was born with, now his two sisters. I'm in shock and more than a little concerned about how I'm going to handle a very special needs son and twin daughters, but somehow we'll do it. Thank goodness DH works from home!

I'm planning a hospital birth (feel very at home in the hospital after what we've been through with DS). Here's to healthy and happy pregnancies for us all!

Congratulations, D'Anne! That does sound like a miracle crew you've got there!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to add myself. My dh and I have a 4yr old dd and are pregnant with our second. my EDD is 4/25 and we are having a home birth. We had one with our dd which was awesome. I can't wait to get to know you all! Congratulations to everyone!

Hi I am Kathleen. I live in San Diego California, but I long to relocate back home to the midwest. Due about 4/23/07 by my calculations. I have one beautiful son who just started kindergarden. I have been TTC since December 2005. I believe I conceived on August 1st. So 38 weeks from that would put me at a due date of late April. Glad to be here.
post #159 of 266
Who's planning to find out the sex at an u/s and who is planning to wait? We're trying to make up our minds.
post #160 of 266
We are going to wait (we waited with DS too). I would kinda like to know, but DH feels strongly about not knowing, so I'll go along with him.
