1. What is your first name?
Katherine


2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)?
This will be #3


3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...?
Married since '02


4. When are you "due?"
I'm going with October 20th


5. Do you have any names picked out?

Names are not so much DH and my strong suit.


6. List 3 facts about yourself.
I'm a SAHM, I'm a handbell director and I feel very lucky to have the life I do.


7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?
The last one was our last, so I'm guessing I'll go with last again.  :)


8. Do you have any cravings yet?
Mostly for cheese, which is unfortunate since I'm allergic to milk.


9. What is your plan for the birth?
Unless a miracle occurs, a c/s


10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins?
Secretly hoping for twins.  My two older boys are so close, I'm really worried about changing that dynamic.


11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc)

12. What state do you live in?
NC


13. Do you have any hobbies?
I used to have hobbies, now I have kids.  :)

I do read, cook, garden, knit, sew and spend way too much time playing games on Facebook.


14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?
About 7.  I could tell I was pregnant about two days after our birth control oops.  Yesterday I finally convinced myself it was all in my head and today, well, here I am.  :)


15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.

I told DH and a couple friends that I was hoping would help me find a decent OB.  Otherwise we're waiting, at least until we hear a heartbeat.  DH wants to wait longer, but I'm not sure I can.  I think everyone that knows us will be shocked and think we're crazy.  We just finished painting the nursery and turned it into DH's office during Christmas break.  We also have had a terrible time with food intolerances with both kids so far, so I'm sure that will just add fuel to the fire.

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?

I want SO many more!

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet?

I crave things on a daily basis that I cannot have... because of my IC I cannot eat most fruits, chocolate, preservatives, food coloring, anything acidic in the least... Many people go into remission during pregnancy... I am hopeful.

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? Married

4. When are you "due?" October 9

5. Do you have any names picked out? None yet. We usually have a pool of names we like and then throw them out the window after the birth because none suit the little person.

6. List 3 facts about yourself. I work full time. I'm PTO president. And I had what some would say was a very glamorously adventurous life before kids.

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? I'm 42 and had those perimenopausal wacky periods. It's all in God's hands on that one.

8. Do you have any cravings yet? None yet. It's more a lack of craving for junk food, highly sugared stuff or spicy stuff.

9.  What is your plan for the birth? Currently exploring homebirth and birth center. 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? Doesn't matter I've given away EVERYTHING! No hand-me-downs left!

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) My adventurous independent streak and dh's outgoing personality.

12. What state do you live in? MA

13. Do you have any hobbies? Knitting, maybe sewing now.

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? One at home and one at my PCP to prove to dh that we really ARE preggo!

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. Just one person who is borrowing some of my baby wraps (I need them back in October, sweetie). We're waiting because...you never know what happens. ETA: I told dh via text message because he refused to look up from his computer, lol.

1. What is your first name? Amy

 

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? As far as I know, no little kids running around claiming me as momma (but there was that one spring break).  Kidding!  This is our first!

 

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? Married

 

4. When are you "due?" Somewhere around the middle of October.

 

5. Do you have any names picked out? Ha!  No way!  Our last name is May, so we've ruled out a few categories though:  No additional anagrams (Amy May --> Mya May = NOT HAPPENING.  No months (August May, June May).  No rhymes (Ray May, Kay May etc). 

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself. I'm training to become a midwife (and a doula).  I've run 8 marathons and 22 half-marathons, and the hubs is a runner too.   I can write with both hands at the same time, with my left hand writing in mirror image.

 

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? First of many, God willing, this is definitely not the last!

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet? I can't tell.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth? Planning on a homebirth, hopefully after hours of walking in the parks next to our house.

 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? I feel totally guilty for saying this.  Girl.  Eventually, a few of each, but I keep thinking about her hair....

 

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) My husband and I are a mixed race family, so we're obviously a little biased about the beautiful children we can't wait to have... As long as they're a little of him and a little of me, who cares who gets what?

 

12. What state do you live in? MA

 

13. Do you have any hobbies? Blogging, cooking dates with DH, running, reading, knitting, arts & crafts, traveling, writing, playing piano.

 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? Just one.  I peeked early too (before the 3 minutes), but while I was washing my hands, I definitely saw that pink line!  I keep checking it to make sure I didn't imagine the lines!

 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. I told DH immediately, and now, you all know.  I told another old friend who is TTC (we're stalking each other's charts), and I told a pregnant colleague/neighbor/friend.  One of my classmates picked me up yesterday for our class and she peed the minute she got to my house, and I bragged about how many days I'd gone without coffee.  Very quickly, we got it out in the open that BOTH of us are preggo!  I'm not sure when/how to tell family, but that'll happen pretty quickly.  It's only been a few days, and it is still surreal.

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? Baby will be #5. Our other kids are 9, 8, 5, and 4.

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? Married for almost 11 years.

4. When are you "due?" 10/4 but I bet I'll go early.

5. Do you have any names picked out? None. For real. We are in the middle of adopting our three youngest now, and their names needed to be changed for safety reasons. I've used up my baby name stash on them!

6. List 3 facts about yourself.  I'm from the midwest. I live on a farm. I'm a writer.

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? My car will be full after this baby! I'm open to the idea of more, but this baby was a 5 or 6 year wait, so we'll see what happens.

8. Do you have any cravings yet? YES. Anything spicy. The hotter the better.

9.  What is your plan for the birth? I don't have one yet at only 6 weeks. I'll start making a plan after my first appt at the birth center in March.

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? I have no real opinion on this one. I have two girls and two boys now. From a clothing standpoint, I could more easily outfit a baby girl with hand-me-downs, so I'll go with girl. :)

11. You hope your baby has your eyes/vocabulary and his nose/math skills(eyes.. smile etc)

12. What state do you live in? Kansas

13. Do you have any hobbies? Quilting, reading, scuba diving, shopping.

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?  omg, embarrassing. I had a few miscarriages and I've been nervous so far. So.... 8. Yes, I took 8 tests. I stopped when I could definitely tell the line was getting darker. Don't judge me! ;)

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. Close family and friends, plus a couple of random internet forums.

12. What state do you live in? PA

13. Do you have any hobbies? Volunteering, wine-making (ha!), animals, crafting, running

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?  First, I peed on one for the heck of it a few days before my period and nothing showed up, (control or otherwise) so I tossed it thinking it was defective, went to work.  When I came back, low and behold there were two lines.  About twelve hours had passed, so I went down the street and bought a digitael.  It said 'pregnant'.  And maybe I have peed on a stick every day since for the heck of it...

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.  I'm waiting a bit.  I told my boss, but no one else.  I'm waiting for it to sink in.

Oh my goodness, that would just kill the MIL!! Well most of the things I do are "weird" anyway so that would just be another thing on her list.

If this is a boy, I do have a middle name picked out most likely(my FIL's name) so maybe it would go easier. Still, I could change my mind once it was born!

Thank you!  I'm totally stalking your chart...

 

Oooph, that didn't go like I planned... was trying to respond to a particular post (and a friend).  Don't worry, I'm not stalking all your charts, ladies!

 

P.S.  Did I include in my 3 facts that I'm "forum illiterate?"

   1. What is your first name?   

Dana

 

   2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)?   

I have one little boy (18 months) and this one on the way makes #2

 

   3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...?   

Happily married for almost 4 years. :)

 

   4. When are you "due?"   

Around October 17, 2011

 

   5. Do you have any names picked out?   

Not yet.  I told my husband that he gets to pick out the name, since I kinda made the final decision on our first son's name.

 

   6. List 3 facts about yourself.   

I love to cook and am really into whole foods.  My husband calls me a food snob, but I refuse to eat artificial junk.

I'm a stay at home mom and find it to be the most frustrating, tiring, and absolutely wonderful job I have ever had!

I love cats and would probably adopt every single one I came across if I didn't think it would totally traumatize the two I already have.

 

   7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?   

Not sure.  Some days I want a huge family and others I about pull my hair out with the one child I have at the moment. lol

 

   8. Do you have any cravings yet?   

fruit and salt.  I did have a craving the other day for steak, which is crazy, because I hardly ever eat beef.  Waiting for the m/s to kick in.  I had Hyperemisis with my first.  Praying it won't be that bad this time around.

 

   9.  What is your plan for the birth?   

VBAC!  maybe even an HBAC if my options are limited.

 

1   0. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? 

Would love my son to have a brother, but I will be happy with which ever we are blessed with!

 

 11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) 

my smile and his dimples. :)

 

 12. What state do you live in? 

Virginia

 

 13. Do you have any hobbies?  

Cooking and singing

 

 14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? 

5?  Sad, huh?  I really thought I was seeing things b/c we just started TTC in January.  It took 6 months with our son.  Am still in shock that it happened right away.

 

 15 . Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. 

Have told the immediate family

1. What is your first name?   

Corrie/corra/corrabelle. I get all three, equally. Mostly Corrie.

 

   2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)?   

2 boys, Reuben, age 8, and Zeke, age 7, and one little mystery flavour on the way.

 

   3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...?   

Married:) 

   4. When are you "due?"   

Around October 13, 2011

 

   5. Do you have any names picked out?   

No...I can come up with a lot more boy names that I like than girl names. I have a feeling we're going to have  a hard time with that. I like rare/unusual names, but not cheesy. My husband seems to like boring, ordinary girl names. Oye. 

   6. List 3 facts about yourself.   

1.  I love cooking, gardening, and farming. (yeah, i'm in the city now-, but i'm from "the middle of nowhere" Kansas-and a farm girl at heart.) We eat whole foods and try to buy from local, organic farmers. I'm getting chickens this spring. I kid you not.

2. I work from home-I'm illustrator/designer. I create children's media (nursery wall art, cards, growth charts etc) and design rubber stamps.

3. I'm a Christian.

 

   7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?   

I don't know yet...I always said 4..we'll see! We'll need a bigger house though..

 

 

   8. Do you have any cravings yet?   

Oddly, yes. With my first two, I didn't. I've been eating dilly beans though like there's no tomorrow. A week ago, we were snowed in. I pickled every fresh fruit and vegetable we had in the house. The next morning I took a preg test. Sure enough...

 

   9.  What is your plan for the birth?   

Home birth. My first two were in the hospital with a midwife. They both came so fast though that the midwife told me that I have to be prepared this time for a home birth. Since I had no complications

with the first two, i'm going to go for it. I hate hospitals anyway.

 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? 

Since I have two boys, I do think it would be fun to have a girl. That being said, I love baby boys, they're so much fun-so I'll be happy with either!

 

 11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) 

My husband's dimples and cute little forhead cowlick/curl, my nose /teeth.

 

 12. What state do you live in? 

Ontario, Canada

 13. Do you have any hobbies?  

Painting, illustrating, crafting, cooking, gardening, writing, letterboxing, rollerskating! 

 14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? 

Including this one, 4. I lost one last june, of 2010. It was very strange though-I was *barely* pregnant, and I didn't even know that i was. I hadn't even missed my period...i'll forever be confused about the entire thing.

 

 15 . Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. 

Only my husband, and my sister:) Still waiting to tell my children until I know that this is "solid". (a little worried after the last miscarriage.) Trying to think of a good time and a clever/fun way to tell our parents!
