I'm due May 27 with #1, a boy - Lazarus James. I had to find out the gender because I had two dreams right after conception in which a beautiful little boy greeted me as "mama"... Also have a 10yo stepdaughter, Johnnie, who lives with us half-time and is really looking forward to meeting her baby brother.
I'm hoping for a natural birth, and am taking Bradley classes to improve my odds. My OB seems supportive of my choices and hasn't given me the "but you're 35 and high-risk" rigamarole. I'd love to home birth with a midwife, but I am going the hospital route (possibly with a doula) because my insurance only covers hospital/OB and both DH and I are now unemployed.
I'm also hoping lil' Lazarus will decide to come early, now that we're past the danger point. Anyone else due soon and ready to lose their marbles? I've loved pregnancy, but suddenly I don't know how much more barfing and joint pain and weird Braxton-Hicks and near-immobility and sleeplessness I can take... but that's another thread, isn't it??
Anyway (to end on a happy note!), congrats to all the mamas-to-be!!!!
