Hey everyone!

Name: Heather
Screen Name: OkiMom
Age: 24
Other Children: 1-DD almost 15 months old.
Due Date: Early November.
Where do you live: Okinawa, Japan
A brief intro: Hey! Im Heather, I am a SAHM. Ive been married for almost three years to John. We have a wonder daughter named Elyse. I miscarried in Janurary and took a test the other day and wow Im pregnant again. I have no idea when I will be due since I didn't have a period after the miscarriage (Ive miscarried once previously in Feb 06) and I am still nursing my DD. We are super excited to be expecting and are praying that this baby sticks. Im already feeling more optimistic since I actually feel pregnant this time unlike last time. Depending on the baby's due date he might just be born on mine (Nov 9) or my husbands (Nov 11) birthday.
We live in Okinawa, Japan. My husband is a US Marine and we have been stationed over here for almost a year. We have another two years before we go back to the states. We would really like to do a home birth but it is illegal over here to so I have to go to the hospital and give birth.

Name: Sarah
Screen Name: lady_ell
Age: 32
Other Children: none
Due Date: early November
Where do you live: Appalachia
A brief intro: I'm a professor and pregnant with my first child. In the span of 10 days, I accepted a tenure track position, put a contract on an 1889 farmhouse in the middle of nowhere, and got a positive pregnancy test. My husband of less than a year is a documentary filmmaker. We're very happy about this pregnancy, but a little overwhelmed right now (it was not planned!). I'd like to have a home birth, but they're illegal here, and the word on the street is that our local hospital (the only one in a 2 hour radius) is big on interventions. So we're trying to stay informed about how to keep this pregnancy and birth as natural as possible.

A brief intro: I WAHM part time. My dd is still nursing strong and praying that if it needs to end, that it is directed by her and not me. I have lurking here for almost 2 weeks and worried that someone who knows me and doesn't know I am pg. is reading my post. If you read this, pm me. We have been trying on and off for almost 3 years to ttc #2. I had 3 acupuncture treatments and I swear, that is why I am pregnant. I had a beautiful, fast, unmedicated water birth with Anna. I am hoping the same for #2. I am praying that I do not get placenta accreta again.

Age: 27
Other Children: DD 2yo
Due Date: 11-25
Where do you live: Minnesota
A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. I'm married to a wonderful DH who shares the same AP, NFL mindset as I (though I do push his limits!). I nursed DD on demand until she weaned...though she still likes to "nursie" though there's nothing left! We birthed in hospital with a midwife with DD #1 and haven't decided what route we're planning on this time. (I'm pushing for a homebirth!) I work as a prenatal yoga teacher and childbirth educator, so this will be interesting to see how I handle teaching & attending classes as a "student"..

Other Children: Madeleine Isabella will turn 3 in August
Due Date: not sure yet because no LMP to go off of. But I have a feeling of last week of Nov/first week of Dec
Where do you live: Florida
A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc.
Madeleine's birth was awful. C section under general, long seperationg from her, week long NICU stay. I am trying to avoid that at all costs. We are looking at birth centers and home births. Both of us are leaning toward homebirth. I am still somewhat nursing my daughter and hope that she weans completely on her own by the time the new little one comes. I am just not up for tandem, although i will if I have to.

i figured that was you!

Man, is morning sickness hitting you yet?

it's awful over here. no ralphing yet, but MAN!

I see you are going UC, I am pretty sure we are doing a homebirth. I would love to do an UC, but I think once I get a natural birth under my belt I would be more confident.

Other Children:
Kyla, 2 yrs
Due Date:
Nov 15
Where do you live:
Charlotte NC
A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc.
I am Married to Jon, and have been a SAHM since a month before K was born. I have my degree in elementary ed, but became a Nanny for 2 1/2 years after graduating college instead of teaching. My pregnancy and delivery with K were pretty rough, and led into major breastfeeding issues. She did not latch until 10 weeks and in the meantime I had mastitis 3 times, thrush for 6 weeks, and reynauds. I still have some permanent damage to my nipples. B/c of what I went through with her, I have spent the last 2 years researching what occured during her birth and am planning a homebirth this time.

Introducing myself

Screen Name:CheriK
Other Children: Fiona and Kieran, 6-year old twins
Due Date: End of November (on or about Fiona and Kieran's 7th bday)
Where do you live: Northern California
A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc.

Married to dh James for almost 13 years. We're planning a homebirth this time(VBAC). Breastfeeding - of course Fiona and Kieran self-weaned (Kieran just a few months ago). We homeschool/unschool. I work part-time outside the home and volunteer for LLL and our local homeschooling community. We have way too many animals, including a momma guinea pig and her babies who we're fostering for the animal shelter (so if you know anyone near Sacto who wants guinea pigs. . .)

We aren't sharing the news of our new baby until I'm a bit more pregnant, but boy do I need to connect to other moms. Already feeling tired, queasy, and wondering how I'm going to manage this time with two others who need Mom.

Screen Name: Chiroalltheway
Age: 25
Other Children: J, 2 yrs old and T, 12 months (both boys)
Due Date: end of Nov. I think
Where do you live: Texas
A brief intro: Well, I'm jumping in here. I had a m/c b/w my 2 boys so i'm a little nervous. I had horrible m/s in the night last night, plus bad headaches, lower back pain, etc. so I thought I could at least tell you all. (not telling many IRL yet) DH is in school to become a Chiropractor. I'm a SAHM and LOVE it. I'm still BFing my 1 yr old and am clueless how it's going to go while prego, b/c he will NOT eat any solids. Everyone is encouraging me that he won't starve himself, though, if I lose my milk I'm planning a birth center birth with a midwife and of course planning to BF (and possibly tandem BF if it's what DS2 prefers) We CD, don't vax, and GD. That's pretty much life for us!!
