1. What is your first name? Julie

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? This is number one.biggrinbounce.gif

 

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? Married (though not legally), have been together 11 years.

 

4. When are you "due?" October 30, the day after my dad's birthday!

 

5. Do you have any names picked out?  A list of about 10 for each sex, but it might be hard to come to an agreement.  We have very different criteria for names, in that DH likes made-up names and I like "real" names.  We have more overlap for girl names, though.

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself. I'm virtually incapable of writing brief posts, I live on a homestead/farm with a bunch of critters, and I've wanted a baby for about 9 years (although we only started trying last fall).

 

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? I want one more, husband only wants one biological child, although he would be willing to adopt a second.  We will have to see, once we have one, what agreement we can come to.

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet? Nope, but I'm only 12DPO.  I am noticeably hungry, thirsty, and tired, but nothing serious.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth? We're a three-hour drive (through the middle of nowhere) to the nearest hospital with midwives, and my husband (and me, a little, too) is worried about complications for our first birth, so probably at the hospital with an OB.  I hope I get the good one, because here you just get whoever is on call, and there's one guy who seems really fantastic!  I'm hoping to get a doula, as they are available a little closer to home and they can help us keep it as intervention-free as I want it to be.

 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? Honestly, I'm kind of hoping for twins, although I realize that that might make me crazy.  My husband would accept us having two if they were twins!  Ideally, a boy/girl pair.  But I would be really happy with a single of either sex.

 

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) Let's see . . . his teeth (no fillings) and love for learning new things, and my eyesight (which is MUCH better than my husband's) and love for language.

 

12. What state do you live in? Saskatchewan, Canada

 

13. Do you have any hobbies? I'm kind of a Jill of all trades . . . so cross-country skiing, veggie and flower gardening, knitting and crochet, animal training, travel, reading, recently natural-materials building (a straw bale chicken coop, and hopefully a cob garden shed next summer), walking, cooking, singing . . . it depends on the week.  I recently started learning to play marimba (like a big wooden xylophone) with my husband. 

 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? The only tests I can get here are $10 a pop, so only one so far.  I have two more, I'm going to take them next week and the week after that.  I had a very early loss last fall (18DPO), so I'm going to worry until I'm at least past that day . . . I want my tests to last me until well after that.

 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. I told my sister, because she's one of my very best friends and I'm terrible at keeping secrets.  I'll tell my parents the next time I talk to them.  I'll leave it up to my DH whether he wants to tell MIL when she comes to visit tomorrow or not . . . I would kind of prefer not, but I don't feel too strongly about it.  I'll hold off on telling anyone else for a little while, at least, because I only had to untell one couple last time (other than family), and that was too many.


On a farm with our kiddo (nearly 2), two dogs, two cats, ten goats, two donkeys, nine sheep, a bunch of chickens, and a husband (in the winters). We have another on the way!

1. What is your first name?

 

Tracy

 

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

 

This will be #7 for me. The others are 21, 17, 15, 10, 4 and 1.

 

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

 

Married

 

4. When are you "due?"

 

Around Oct. 11.

 

5. Do you have any names picked out?

 

Sarah Anne for a girl. No boy names -- we've used them up.

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself.

 

I'm 43, a technical writer for a software company and I'm so tired I can't think of a 3rd thing.

 

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

 

I think this has to be it. My husband is turning 50 this year and planning for kids later in life is a lot harder because there are so many considerations (like saving for retirement v. saving for college).

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet?

 

Not really, except every couple of days, a McDonald's hamburger.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth?

 

I think I'm going to plan for another homebirth, like the last 2. I would like to use the tub because I wasn't able to the last time.

 

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

 

I'm hoping for a girl so that I'll have 4 boys and 3 girls (although with the way my girls have been arguing lately, I wonder if I'm better off with yet another boy?)

 

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

 

I seriously don't care. My kids are all a genetic mishmash: some blonds, some brunettes, some blue eyes, 1 brown eyed, some hazelish.

 

12. What state do you live in?

 

VA

 

13. Do you have any hobbies?

 

I read as much as I can, love to cook, play golf if I can fit it in. With so many kids, much of my time is spent supporting their hobbies/activities instead.

 

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

 

Probably 40. I had a m/c in December, and after that bought 50 ICs. I started testing at like 6 dpo, even though I knew it was foolish, and at 10 dpo, I was shocked to see a light line. I tested twice a day for quite a while to ease my mind. The 50 ICs were $8 or so, so I really don't care about wasting them.

 

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

 

Obviously, I told DH. I told a close friend that I work with and a moms group that I belong to online. The rest of the family, including the kids, and co-workers will have to wait a few more weeks, although I have a feeling some people are starting to suspect since I've started with the almost all day queasiness and serious fatigue. Oh, yeah, and bloat that's unbelievable.

I'm so excited to join! I just POAS this AM and got a clear BFP. this baby (like our previous DD) was conceived via FET so I'm 10 days post a 5 day blast transfer, which means about 15days post "O"

 

1. What is your first name?

Colleen

 

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

This will be #2. DD is 19 months

 

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

Married since Aug 2006. May of 2011 will be 10 years since our first date :)

 

4. When are you "due?"

Oct 24. But l went to 42+2 with DD so I'm guessing I'll likely go a little later.

 

5. Do you have any names picked out?

Not yet.

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself.

I'm an RN. I'm an infertility survivor. I love reading and cooking.

 

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

Definitely want more. I would love to have 3-4 kids total.

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet?

Nope. Didn't really with last pregnancy either (except for lots of fresh fruit)

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth?

Working towards an HBAC

 

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

I think I would love another girl.

 

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

Our kids are all created with donor sperm so this question always feels a little odd to me.

Canada

 

13. Do you have any hobbies?

Reading. Cooking. Trying to get more into sewing and gardening.

 

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

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

DH was with me for the testing this AM. We live with a very dear friend who we will likely tell this weekend. I plan to email my ND soon who's been instrumental in getting me pregnant both times and immensely supportive through the whole infertility process. Likely tell our parents/siblings once we get u/s confirmation of a heartbeat and probably tell friends and everyone else at around the 10-12 week mark.

1. What is your first name? Jessica

 

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

 

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

 

4. When are you "due?"  Oct. 23-ish

 

5. Do you have any names picked out?   Mmm...not really.  There's a girl name DH and I both really like, but it's one of those names that easily lends itself to teasing, so we're kinda unsure about it.  Last time around there was only 1 boy name we agreed on (we had a boy).

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself.  I taught kindergarten for 6 years.  I graduated from a Quaker college.  I love living half a block away from the co-op we belong to...just a quick walk to local produce, breads from some of the best bakeries in town, natural skin/hair products, etc.

 

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?  I think this is gonna be it.

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet?  Not yet...only 20 DPO.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth?  We plan to use the same freestanding birth center that we used when DS was born.  It's about a 25-30 min. drive from our house and the practice includes at least 8 midwives and several nurses.  It's also right across the street from a hospital with a good reputation.

 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins?  Welllll....I'd kinda like a girl, but feel like the universe has set me up to live in a house of boys -- the last two years I was teaching my classes were 70% boys.  Also, my mom and my aunt and my maternal grandmother and my paternal aunt and DH's parents all had two kids each, either 2 boys or 2 girls.

 

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc)  DH and I both have long lashes, which DS inherited and they're beautiful, so I vote that his sibling get them, too.  It would be fun if baby got my hazel eyes (DH and DS are brown).  And DH's mellowness.

 

12. What state do you live in?  Pennsylvania

 

13. Do you have any hobbies?  Love reading...mostly fiction, including "young adult" and "intermediate" fiction.  I'm a foodie and love reading about food and picking out new recipes (although DH does most of the cooking around here).

 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?  Today I took my third test cuz I wanted to see if the line had gotten any darker.  It had.

 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.  DH knows.  My sister knows (especially pertinent cuz this pregnancy will probably prevent me from attending her wedding in September in India...her fiance is from Chennai).  My childhood best friend knows.  And the 3 mommies from the little playgroup DS and I have been a part of since he was a couple months old.  We'll probably wait until about 12 weeks to tell others...except DH's parents will be visiting when I'm at 8 weeks and it would be nice to tell them in person this time around...so maybe my parents and DH's parents will know at 8 weeks.

Hi everyone! I'm not really new to MDC, but it's been a long while since I've been a regular poster.   I'm excited to be joining the DDC and getting to know everyone!

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

  This will be our 2nd.

 

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

  Married since 7/05

 

4. When are you "due?"

  From LMP, 10/13.  But if you go from when I'm pretty sure conception happened, it would be about a week before that. 

 

5. Do you have any names picked out?

  We've been throwing a few things out there, but we'll probably wait awhile to settle on anything.

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself.

  1-This baby is kind of a surprise, but a fantastically wonderful surprise.  We've both been wanting another for awhile but had convinced ourselves to wait till summer to TTC, for various practical reasons.  2- After my husband lost 2 jobs in a year, I'm now supporting our family (I'm a nurse) while he SAHD's and takes some online classes.  The hope is that once he's finished he can get a more reliable job and I can go back to working very part time.  3- We recently downsized from a 4 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment (see above job woes)  and I really couldn't be happier about the forced simplification of our lives.

 

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

  Not sure.  We only ever wanted one child, till we had one.  Who knows what'll happen after we have 2?

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet?

   No.  Not even a little.  I'm just kinda queasy most of the time.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth?

   Looking like a homebirth, but we'll see.  We have insurance/money issues.

 

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

   We have a boy already, so a girl would be fun.  But I also think it would be great to have 2 little boys running around the house.

 

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

  My idealism and his down-to-earthedness.  We keep each other in check that way :)

 

12. What state do you live in?

  Ohio

 

13. Do you have any hobbies? 

  Hiking, camping, and music festivals in the summertime.  Crafty things in the winter- nothing specific, I dabble in a lot of crafts.

 

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

  Just the one at home.  I'm really so sure I'm pregnant, I think if I'd have waited a few more days, I wouldn't have even needed the test to be sure!

 

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

  Well, my husband obviously.  And my parents and 2 brothers.  And DH told his dad, who has premission to tell family.  And I told a couple of best friends.



 


Amanda- mama to Lincoln 1/09 and expecting #2 10/11!

Hello all! I am officially coming out of lurking to announce: Yay! We're expecting!!!

 

1. What is your first name? Carolyn

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? This is my fifth pregnancy; we have a ds age 8, followed by a full-term loss (dd), then went on to have dd age 4 and dd age 2

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? Married - and our 10 year anniversary is on the 10th of March!

4. When are you "due?" October 24th, 2011

5. Do you have any names picked out? Not yet

6. List 3 facts about yourself. My dh and I both come from huge extended families...just on my side alone I have over 100 first cousins between my mom's and dad's sides of the family. We recently started gardening and canning, and it's turned into a way of life that is so unexpectedly rich and rewarding. We live in a big old two story house that was moved across my hometown to it's current location by a house mover, and set on a new foundation. Dh and the kids and I were able to walk along side the house as it was slowly towed through the streets.

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? We are always open for more, God willing

8. Do you have any cravings yet? Peanut butter

9.  What is your plan for the birth? Long story short, I've had two hospital births and two homebirths, and not in that order. For this birth, we are thinking hospital, but I tend to have fast labors, so I will for sure be having some supplies/resources ready if we would end up staying home. Our family doctor is awesome and actually attended our last homebirth. I struggled a bit with depression immediately following my last birth, so I'm feeling like a hospital birth could offer extra help and extra pampering those first few days to ease the transition. Our local hospital is awesome...very accepting of natural birth and pretty much lets us call all the shots. Combined with our great doctor, it sort of feels like a "homebirth in a hospital!" Honestly the birth I had there several years ago felt more like a vacation than a hospital stay!

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? A boy would be awesome after three girls in a row, but really, a girl would be amazing too.

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) My brown eyes and his calm disposition!

12. What state do you live in? Wisconsin

13. Do you have any hobbies? Love to read, especially spiritual books, be outside, camp, swim, go for drives, pretty much anything our family can do together.

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? Four - I never get tired of seeing that second line appear!

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.     We've not told ANYONE yet, which is really hard! We both felt like it was a neat thing to keep just between the two of us for a while. We'd like to wait until around twelve weeks to tell, but I'm not sure if my fifth-time-around belly will be able to be kept hidden that long!

4. When are you "due?" October 30th. It is very weird because this is THIRD time I have had that exact same due date, to the day. I had the due date with a m/c I have before my youngest DS and then we had a m/c again when DS was just a few weeks old. Seriously, what are the chances of that? I almost fell out of chair when I saw the EDD come up on the calculator! This baby was meant to be.

 

5. Do you have any names picked out? Not yet. We have a few contenders but nothing concrete. I LOVE names so it is a big deal! 

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself. I love being pregnant. I'm a photographer and former model. I usually keep riding my horse well into my pregnancies.

 

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? Nope, I think we're done. Our third was a surprise after a tough m/c and was going to be our last but I just wasn't done yet! One more!

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet? Strangely, I want chicken and broccoli pizza... and I usually DESPISE ANY toppings on pizza! LOL!

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth? Homebirth again, finally in a house we own. The last was in a rental house but I couldn't go back to a hospital after that experience.

 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? I would love twins, but that is highly unlikely! I'm happy either way but a girl would be fun since we have B-G-B right now and my DD wants to be a pattern!

 

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc) My red hair and his cute button nose.

 

12. What state do you live in? CT

 

13. Do you have any hobbies? Tons of them... way too many! Photography and modeling take up most of my free time but I love to sew, knit, scrapbook, bead, read, write, horseback ride, take care of my zoo and lots more. I'm also a certified makeup artist... but that is more work than hobby! LOL!

 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? 2. I'll probably take one more in a week or so just to make sure everything is okay since I won't see the mw for a while.

 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. My closest friends and some family know. My mom always knows before I do... all 3 times now! I'm keeping it from the general population for a while. Basically, I haven't told anyone that I wouldn't want to tell if something went wrong.

1. What is your first name? Kari

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? I have a toddler.  This baby will be my second.

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

4. When are you "due?" Technically September 29th, but if my son is any indication, I should give birth in early or mid October.

5. Do you have any names picked out? Yes, we're pretty set on our boy name and our girl name.

6. List 3 facts about yourself.  I grew up on a farm, I love playing board games, and I'm a stay-at-home-mom

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?  I want 4.  My husband wants 2.  So after this we're waiting a little while and hashing this out some more.

8. Do you have any cravings yet? Well, the only things that are sitting well with my morning sickness are grains (like pasta or mashed potatoes), tomatoes, and cheese.  Oh and this time around fruit.  Not so much when I was pregnant with my son.  The first couple of weeks, I couldn't get enough Indian food. 

9.  What is your plan for the birth? VBAC - not sure if it will be hospital or homebirth.

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? I know it's just one.  I think a brother for my son would be fantastic, but I think a girl in my family would also be fantastic.  So we're hoping for one or the other?  :p

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc)  verbal skills; math skills :p

12. What state do you live in? Ohio

13. Do you have any hobbies? Board games

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? 3.  But the first one was REALLY faint and the second wasn't much darker.  It was the third one that was obviously positive.

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.  I've told both of our immediate families and some close friends (I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks where I got to see the heartbeat so I decided there wasn't much point in keeping it secret past that).  I actually don't care too much about telling anybody we haven't told yet.  I figure I'll post a facebook update on April Fool's Day (when I'll be about 14 weeks) saying "I wonder if anyone would believe me if I said I was pregnant today."  I figure that's announcement enough without having to make too much of it.

Hi, I'm Amanda!
If this one sticks, it will be our first! fingersx.gif
I've been married to my wife for 3 years. We've been together for 10 years.
The babe is due October 27, although I'm betting he/she won't arrive until early November.
We have some ideas for names, but nothing settled.
I love the ocean. I'm a vegetarian. I'm very excited to be pregnant again!
We want at least one more baby after this one.
No real cravings. But I've been really enjoying bananas lately. orngtongue.gif
We're hoping for a homebirth.
No preference on girl or boy
I hope the baby has my mathematical ability and her kindness.
I took five home pregnancy tests and I had three blood tests.
We've told two friends and my sister, but nobody else yet.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

whistling.gifMe, love.gif my wife, blowkiss.gifour son (2.5), and luxlove.gif our daughter (5 months)
