Pregnancy #: First
Family (partner and/or other children): Married, no kids 'cept this little bean.
Birth Plans/Preferences: I have no idea, but waterbirth sounds pretty cool.

post #27 of 197

Age: 28
Due Date: December 14
Pregnancy #: 2
Family (partner and/or other children): DH and little girl, 20 months old
Birth Plans/Preferences: My first birth was an unmedicated hospital birth with a nurse midwife, but recently we moved to a very rural area. I can't find any midwives around here, so I may have to go with a regular doctor, but I'm excited to go through the birth experience again, and hope it happens as smoothly and quickly as it did for me the first time!
Anything else you'd like to share: We just started TTC this once, in March, and I was definitely NOT expecting to get pregnant on the first try! What a sweet, sweet, surprise! I cannot wait for this baby to come!

post #29 of 197

Name: Steph
Age: 28..will be 29 in Nov.
Due Date: My estimate is the first half of Dec.. got the 10th from an online due date calculator
Pregnancy #: 3
Family (partner and/or other children): DH (30), DS (5), DD (18mo)
Birth Plans/Preferences: Planning my third waterbirth... My first delivery was at a hospital with a midwife, second at a birth center and so I'm thinking that the natural progression is to have this one at home. Not certain tho.. the birth center here is really nice.
Anything else you'd like to share: Just got the yesterday so I'm still feeling This wasn't really planned but we didn't work super hard to avoid it either so I can't say it's too much of a shocker. I'm just feeling freaked at the idea of having a two year old (still nursing) and a newborn at the same time.. Going from two to three seems scary but exciting at the same time.

post #34 of 197
Name: Maureen
Age: 25
Due Date: December 25
Pregnancy #: 2
Family: Dh - 24; Dd - 18 mos
Birth Plans: I want to get through the first trimester before I explore birth plans and get too invested in anything, but probably a birthcenter birth in another town. Our city does not have a NICU and I'm not sure I'd feel okay having a homebirth knowing a transfer would take 15-20 minutes.
Anything Else you'd like to share: I'm still nursing my daughter and I am totally thrilled with this pregnancy, although like I said I am trying not to get too attached at this early stage in the game. I want the next 10 weeks to fly by!
