My husband jumped(literally) for joy and got right on the phone! =) It has been close to six years since he has got to spread that sort of news. I was busy trembling and crying from the SHOCK of it all.

Hi All!  Just realized I never really signed up or shared through the official threads.  It's been great getting to know you all through the other threads though!

 

1. What is your first name? Sarah Joy

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

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

4. When are you "due?" Oct 16

5. Do you have any names picked out? We have a girls name... have since before we were ever TTC... Helena del Carmen after both of our maternal grandmothers.

6. List 3 facts about yourself.  Hmm... I live in Costa Rica, I am a doula, I work in tourism with my own travel business - come down and visit! smile.gif

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? We may have one more but we'll definitely wait a couple years to find out if we want a third!

8. Do you have any cravings yet? I want to go to my favorite restaurants more, but no, haven't had any serious cravings.

9. What is your plan for the birth? We will probably plan for the same as with our first - homebirth waterbirth with my midwife and partner. 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? Girl would be lovely.

11. You hope your baby has your blue eyes and his curly dark hair (eyes.. smile etc) I don't really care, but this would be a striking combination!

12. What state do you live in? My parents live in Washington State and we visit them about once a year.  But we live in Costa Rica year round!

13. Do you have any hobbies? knitting and cooking... and I have to admit that I'm a Facebook addict. 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?  I guess I'm coming in too late on this question but... Oh god, my friend gave me a whole packet of cheap ones and I must have taken 8 total... even though I was sure I was pregnant my first two drugstore tests were negative, then the line started faint and got darker as the hormones got stronger... 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.  We announced to my mother-in-law and dp's siblings right away... and my parents.  Then got antsy and told everyone when I hit 11 weeks.  The very next day I had a bleeding episode that made me kick myself for telling so early.  Thank goodness the baby and I are fine, but it was such ironic timing!


Mama to Gabriel (1-10-2009) and newborn Helena (10-9-2011) h20homebirth.gif with DP Julio.  ...cloth diapering, attachment parenting, infant EC-ing, etc.

 So, I am kinda late to be joining, but that's just how it is... :)

 

1. What is your first name? Nadine

 

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? 2 boys: age 2 1/2 and 16 months and the baby 

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? Married for 6 years

4. When are you "due?" September 28th, but I have always been due at the end of a month and thought it would be nice to see what it was like to have people due a little closer to my due date. 

5. Do you have any names picked out? No, sigh... We use the initials TJ and our last name so picking good names is getting harder. We have picked different names instead of typical ones. My sons are Terrick and Tacen. 

6. List 3 facts about yourself. I used to work as a Dental Hygienist, but now I stay home. I love to cook/bake. I love coffee and yes, drink it while pregnant, but only one cup a day. :)

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? I have no idea. 

8. Do you have any cravings yet? Not really, but I never turn down anything with coconut!

9.  What is your plan for the birth? I don't know. I tried to have a homebirth the last two times and both times "ran out of time" because my water had been broken for too long. I have had awesome pregnancies, labors (the first was tough, but they usually are) and births with nearly no pain meds, I just don't know if I feel like I want to pursue a homebirth again or not but I really don't want to do the whole OB/GYN prenatal thing either...

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? Well, I have 2 boys and would love a third. The thought of having a girl intimidates me, but after two boys, a girl is starting to sound better. I would rather not have twins, that would make 4 kids in 3 years and I hope God doesn't do that to me right now. :)

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

12. What state do you live in? Colorado

13. Do you have any hobbies? Did you not just see that I am preggo with #3?? :) I dabble in cake decorating, but only for friends/family. I have done some knitting/crocheting/cross stitching but those days are far behind/ahead right now. I do love to cook, bake and eat!

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? Um, 3 when I first found out since I was only 3 1/2 weeks. And 2 more at 7 weeks because I started spotting. 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details. We have told everyone at this point since I am 16.5 weeks. We told early though. We didn't hear a heartbeat until 14 weeks and I had a stressful couple of weeks wondering about baby since I spotted some too. Everything seems to be going ok now though!

1. What is your first name?  Kama

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)?  Two daughters, ages 10, 8, one son 3 years old, one unfortunate un-intentional abortion, and another one due in Oct.

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...?  Married to my first official boyfriend

4. When are you "due?"  Mid October

5. Do you have any names picked out?  Girls' name yes, boy's names are the hardest!!

6. List 3 facts about yourself.  Moved 40 times by the age of 18 (and don't regret it), lived in several countries since I've been married, own my own internet business

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?  We consider our precious kids to be blessing from God--as such, who are we to say we have enough blessings? (We wouldn't do that with the blessing of money!)

8. Do you have any cravings yet?  Tomato pasta sauce (things made with it)

9.  What is your plan for the birth?  Find a good midwife/ob here in Ecuador (we moved her about 2 months ago) and be as natural as we safely can

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins?  Personally, I love girl babies 'cause the outfits are so plentiful and cute. There is a chance of twins in this pregnancy, so we'll see. Twin girls would be awesome!

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc)  My laid-back personality, his skin and sweetness

12. What state do you live in?  Used to live in Central Oregon, but now live in Ecuador (and no, I don't know Spanish yet).

13. Do you have any hobbies?   Yep--but I hardly know what they are right now. Busy enough keeping up with pregnancy nausea, a highly active 3 year old boy, looking for a house to live in that actually has a yard big enough to throw a ball, and finding food to eat that doesn't have artificial ingredients (my kids are highly sensitive to them and Ecuador doesn't label foods properly). 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?  One worked great! I was too busy packing to move to Ecuador to consider taking more than one!

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.  Everyone knows--just looking at my belly, it's pretty obvious

1.  What is your first name?  Brandi

 

2.  How many kids do you have (including the new baby)?  This is my first, I'm totally excited.

 

3.  Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...?  Single.  It's pretty rough.

 

4.  When are you "due"?  October 9th by both my calculations, and my last ultrasound.

 

5.  Do you have any names picked out?  If I have a girl, I'll name her Adeline, after my nani.  For a boy I like Jack, or my brother's name- Johnny.  It was looking like a boy at my last appointment, though.

 

6.  List 3 facts about yourself:

--I'm 25

--I live in the Los Angeles area

--I love southern food!

 

7.  Is this your last baby or do you want more?  My first and last, I think.  I didn't plan on this one in the first place, but I'm happy I'm getting the chance to be a mom.

 

8.  Do you have any cravings yet?  Spicy everything.  Hot sauce on everything.  Things I usually love to eat taste completely flavorless unless they're covered in tapatio sauce or frank's red hot.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth?  Hospital, since I have a high risk pregnancy. 

 

10.  We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins?  I say either, but when I was told I was having a boy I kind of felt a little bummed I wasn't going to have a little lady.  A boy is still awesome, though!

 

11.  You hope your baby has your ____ and his ____.(eyes. smile, etc.)  My positive attitude and his amazing, almost freakish good health

 

12.  What state do you live in?  I live in California again, but I lived out in the woods around Houston, TX for 3 years.  I may go back after the birth to take it easy and let my mother help out.  She's been begging for grandkids since I started menstruating.  (...that's an exaggeration, but you get my point)

 

13.  Do you have any hobbies?  Knitting.  I'm only good at easy stuff though, like hats, because I tend to start and stop pieces and lose my place a lot.  I've knitted about 9 hats for this baby already, he'll definitely never have to worry about cold ears.  I also like other crafts, too. 

 

14.  How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far?  First I took one that had been sitting under the sink for god knows how long and it came out possitive.  When it came out positive I decided it was too old to trust and bought a box with three more.  I peed on all those and when THEY all came out possitive, I went to the local clinic and had the test done.  I was in complete shock, I honestly thought I couldn't even get pregnant.  I was totally confused/shocked/elated/mortified.

 

15.  Have you told anyone you're pregnant, or waiting? if waiting, details.  I told my boyfriend at the time (of 7 years, who is the father) first.  He was smitten at first, and then the reality of our situation took hold and he's been very unsupportive for the last couple months.  I broke things off when I realized how the stress from our arguments were wearing at my nerves and possibly affecting my baby.  Then I told my brother.  Last was my closest friends, and my parents.  Everyone was as shocked as I suspected.  And even more so that I have completely embraced my new role!

That's too funny...I used to love tapatio, and my husband eats it on literally almost everything, and after I got pregnant just smelling it would make me throw up!

P.S. I have a little niece named Adelina...such a pretty name!

I used to LOVE oatmeal and now the texture completely grosses me out. I have to force myself to eat it in the mornings.

Hi everyone :) I'm coming to this a bit late (20 weeks today!), but I'm craving pregnancy chat with October moms, and loved my Mothering DDC last time :)

 

1. What is your first name?
Amy

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)?
Two including this one. My son is three years old.

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...?
Married 5.5 years (wow that went fast!)

4. When are you "due?"
October 18 (my mom's birthday. MIL is the 19th!)

5. Do you have any names picked out?
If it's a girl, we're thinking Evelyne Rosemary. No idea for a boy.

6. List 3 facts about yourself.

i. I'm 33.
ii. I'm of Irish, Polish, Scottish and French descent, living in a very francophone area!
iii. It was getting pregnant with my firstborn that spurred me into making healthier, more natural and environmentally friendly lifestyle choices.

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more?
This will be our last. Being pregnant is hard on me, and I don't feel like I can be a good enough mother with more than two kids.

8. Do you have any cravings yet?
Never really had particular cravings.

9.  What is your plan for the birth?
Same baby-friendly hospital as last time, hopefully unmedicated.

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins?
My gut is saying girl, and that would be an extra treat for me, but I'll be perfectly happy with a boy as well. We'll (hopefully) find out next Friday.

11. You hope your baby has your ____ and his______. (eyes.. smile etc)
I think any combination would be great, but I'm particularly intrigued with a blond hair (me)/brown eyes(DH) combination in girls.

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

13. Do you have any hobbies?
My #1 love is knitting, I'm learning to sew when I can, and I crochet but not as often anymore.

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol?
Just two the first time, I was in total disbelief.

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? If waiting, details.
Everybody knows now ;)


Amy, mom to E superhero.gifsince April 2008 and C babyboy.gif since October 2011, wife to P since September 2006.

1. What is your first name? Katrina

 

2. How many kids do you have (including the new baby)? This is our first!

 

3. Are you married, single, divorced, in a relationship...? I've been married for just under 11 months.

 

4. When are you "due?" Our "guess date" is October 12.

 

5. Do you have any names picked out? My dear husband likes Leonidas. I don't know if I'll be able to talk him out of it. We both like Levi and I like Elijah (it's a boy!).

 

6. List 3 facts about yourself. 1. I have terrible self-esteem issues... but they've gotten a lot better during my pregnancy. 2. I'm a super happy person--so much so that I'm usually just way too nice. No backbone at ALL! 3. I adore kids. My parents did foster care most of my life, and I practically raised some of the little ones, so I tend to have the misguided illusion that I'll be more prepared for parenthood than some people.

 

7. Is this your last baby or do you want more? I absolutely want more. Maybe not yet though.

 

8. Do you have any cravings yet? I can't get enough salty foods. And around 17 weeks I ate nothing but lemons and V8.

 

9.  What is your plan for the birth? I'm planning a homebirth with a midwife and my mom as my doula.

 

10. We know healthy, but hoping for a girl/boy/twins? I didn't care either way. My husband was almost desperate for a boy--and he got his wish!

 

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

 

12. What state do you live in? Maryland (just moved from NY).

 

13. Do you have any hobbies? I love to sing and play guitar.

 

14. How many pregnancy tests have you taken so far, lol? I only took one at home! It was very faint, so I went straight to the doctor instead of going crazy waiting.

 

15. Have you told anyone your pregnant or waiting? We told people as soon as we got confirmation from the doctor, about 5 weeks. Neither of us is very good at keeping secrets.

Proud to be "that" girl--the crazy bedsharing, sling-wearing, breastfeeding mama everyone

thinks is crazy!
