Age: 23
Other Children: Delilah, age 18 months
Due Date: Nov 1
Where do you live: Utah, just north of SLC
A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. I am currently a student studying Elementary Education. I am married to John. Currently nursing Delilah and would love to tandem nurse. I am planning a home birth this time, I had a birthing center last time. I had a really rough pregnancy last time and this one looks like it is going to be the same. That is all I can think of right now.

Other Children: Roman, 20.5 months old
Due Date: November 1
Where do you live: West coast of BC
A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc.: I am a SAHM. My DH and I just got married last Saturday- February 16- and I got my positive pregnancy test that morning (at 7DPO, no less)! Roman is still nursing frequently and I'm really hoping that he doesn't wean during my pregnancy. I planned a homebirth last time but transferred due to lack of support () and ended up with an epi at the hospital. This time I am adamant about a homebirth and am better preparing myself with lots of support and lots of research.

A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc.
I've been married to my college sweetheart for 3.5 years and I am a SAHM. We are a breastfeeding, CDing, anti-circ family. I absolutely support NCB and wish I could have it for myself. My DS was born at 32w4d by cesarean. He was tranverse, and I ended up with a J-incision on my uterus, so VBAC is not an option for me : Of course, I still hope that labor sneaks up on me and I have the baby in our bathroom or something , but with all my research, I feel that a planned cesarean is the safest option for us : I do feel a little less excited/magical about this PG since I know how it will end, but I will do everything in my power to make my c/s the most gentle that it can be!

Name: Brooke
Screen Name: Bella Catalina
Age: 27
Other Children: DS Adrian, 22mths
Due Date: November 4
Where do you live: Los Angeles
A brief intro: I'm an Aussie living in Los Angeles with my DH, a film editor, and from London, UK. I'm a SAHM to our little boy, who will be 23mths next week. We're an extended BFing, CDing, BWing, co-sleeping, traditional foods eating (most of the time), no vax family. Our future sons will be left intact (Adrian wasn't and it one of my biggest regrets). Adrian was born at 36+3 so I am hoping this one makes it to 36 weeks as well and that we can have our first homebirth.

I don't have an inkling for gender yet, but DS already knows there is a baby in mummy's belly and he is consistently telling me it's 2 girls, so who knows.

We just m/c on January 16 at 9w4d so I am nervous that this one (or ones lol) won't stay with us, either. We conceived again straight away which is a blessing because it took us 12 months to conceive Bailee.

Looking forward to getting to know you all

Other Children: DD Hannah, 2.5
Due Date: Nov 3
Where do you live: Georgia
A brief intro: DH and I have been married for almost 4 years, we are an extended bfing, cosleeping, cding, nocirc, novax family. I am a SAHM. I've miscarried 3 times, so I'm not feeling the excitement yet with this pregnancy that I wish I could. We are optimistic though, since I'm on a cocktail of drugs to keep this pregnancy going. I hope to home birth (VBAC), but I'm afraid I'll be too "high risk" for the midwife in my area (with all the meds I'm on, including a blood thinner) My OB is very optimistic about vbac'ing, and supportive of NCB at least, so that's encouraging.

Where do you live: Soutcentral Alaska!
A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. DH and I have been married for 5 years, together for 8. We are both from a small town in Alaska and have moved back here after living in Seattle for 7 years. I tandem nursed my first two children, and my younger DC is still nursing. I am not sure if I am up for tandeming again, though. I actually worry that my older DC would be left out!

My first two children were born by unwanted cesareans, and I am really wrestling with this birth. I want a vba2c, and I know I can birth this baby normally, but where I live it is SOOO difficult to get a vbac. I am considering UC.

Mama, I lived on Bowen Island for 3 mths from Aug-Nov last year. I love BC but too cold and wet for me
post #14 of 149
I live in the lower mainland. I love it here because its so beautiful. I hate it here because we have one season.
RAIN.
There are four subseasons of rain.
We have the warm rainy season that the rest of the world calls Spring.
We have the hot rainy season that the rest of the world calls Summer.
We have the cool rainy season that the rest of the world calls Fall.
And we have a cold rainy season that the rest of the world calls Winter.

The island is pretty too!
post #15 of 149
Sage, that's funny about your seasons.

I love BC. I used to live in Seattle and we went to Vancouver all the time.
post #16 of 149
LOL Sage! I know the feeling. We've actually had gorgeous weather for the past week- is it the same on the mainland?
post #17 of 149

A brief intro: This is still so early in the pregnancy..... Ok, I expect we will be tandem feeding again, home birthing, co sleeping....... However, if I start working, DH will be doing most of the care and I will be pumping so he can feed new baby (we are in a very difficult situation, baby is a total surprise!).
