UC buddies thread? - Page 6

post #101 of 113

Hi, Mommas!

Just wanted to add myself to the role call... Due in mid October here with dc#1. We are seeing a midwife (the same one who "didn't make it" in the Psalm and Zoya movie) for pre-natals as we are expecting twins and are on the opposite side of the country from my family of wise women. DH and I wanted to have someone to bounce our concerns/questions off of. We will be UCing, though, and are so very excited about having a spiritual, gentle birth! BTW, we are moving, too! I guess that when the universe want us to bring change to our lives, it means business!

Hola...checking in.

We made it to Florida!!! Wheew. We found a house on Wednesday night, we applied/did the credit app. thing Thursday am, got a 'yes' thursday afternoon, left with a packed car and truck thursday at midnight!!
We drove a bit, hit a Hampton, Drove all friday, arrived home /at moms at 130 am. Moved in Saturday etc. mostly unpacked now.... Missed you ladies much, much

Am 41w 3d today... have had grinding in my front center pelvic joint, so- got a chiro appt with a new guy...walked in, sat there...felt like I should get up and run - and I did . Said got a call from my old chiro - he could get me in {true- got a hold of the office and got in later in the day.} Proud of myself for not taking any crap, when my guts say no- I dont do it.


So...we are excited about baby - very! I am betting Friday night... MAYBE Thursday...any takers? bets?

I LOVE my new bedroom. Its great. I just want to hang out in there, I have never had a room that Iw anted to to hang in, just sleeping and dressing and other fun stuff ... {I guess I should have said "our" bedroom ? }

The rest of the house is fab-u-lous too. There is a great back room for the kids and it has french doors to the fab back yard/patio. The kids are in HEAVEN after being stuck in the house in KY for 6 months. They are naked and outside all day. w00t! Beautiful, everything on my list of "wants" in a house.

Ok- - thats us for now- :0 will keep everyone up dated

Christine....hope you are feeling well and taking care of yourself....all of yourself.

We've only ever had one beedroom that we loved. The only reason we didn't want to move out was because of this bedroom.

Hellooooo out there!!!!

I am 5 days in (yes you read right) and am loving it!!! I am UP/UC this pregnancy and it will be my second UC (my daughter was born 6 months ago). My birthing date is in early December and I know it will be here in no time.

As this is most likely my last pg, I am celebrating every sensation, every moment, every last moment..................I just realized, this will be the last time that I am 5 days pregnant, the last time that I will have that giddy anticipation of the upcoming months, the last time..............ugh!

OK, off to talk to dh about the possibility of more dc.......

I'm going to officially join this thread (instead of lurking in the corner). DH is finally on board with a uc -- YAY!! We UP'd the first half of the pregnancy, but found a hb mw we thought we could live with at 20 weeks. She coerced me into taking the GTT at 27 weeks, then insisted I have concurrent ob care, which lead of course to more and more intervention and crappy treatment. So, here we are ... right where I wanted to be from the start!

With this prenancy (I almost typed this DD...hmmmm.....) I KNEW the second we were done dtd that I was pregnant. I wasn't going to test but in the end I did. I like keeping the sticks (minus the peed on part ) since I don't do u/s. I ended up testing at............8 weeks. I just knew, I didn't need to test you know? DH thought I was nuts and then when I told him I'd known for two months without saying anything he wanted to know why I didn't tell him. Cause I don't have ta'! Congrats (I posted on your other thread too ) and welcome! I think the UP is soooo exciting...especially when it comes to answering questions.

Joining in as well! This will be our first at home birth and I am so excited. I am actually using a family dr (for awhile, dh isn't totally ready for UC) and a midwife.

I mainly want a homebirth so I can do what I want, when I want. I contacted the midwife for care but not necessarily for the birth. Dh would prefer she be there for the birth....I don't want to scare him.

I need to get a support system for the girls and don't know what to do, as my family and dh's would not be a good match, as they give too much input.

I am very happy to be here and look forward to hearing about everyone!

Hi everyone.

I am 13 weeks and am so happy to meet all you ladies.

I am currently attending hbs with a mw as a labor assistant and she is super supportive of a UC. She said she will provide me with whatever support I need so I am just playing it like that. I do like the idea of having a mw to call instead of the hosp. being the next option, kwim?

All will be fine though....I know this.

I had a hb with my ds and I used a mw I did not vibe with and I was given SO MANY signs along the way. I am thankful for the learning experience b/c now I know what I want and I have a lot more confidence.

My big thing is not looking at the calender. I was a full 42 weeks last time and we pushed my labor with herbs b/c the mw wanted stress tests etc. This time I am estimating sometime in the first few weeks of October.
