Hello beautiful momma's! Happy to join you all
EDD: Nov 16
Age conception/delivery: 27/28
Location: Southside Chicago
How long to get BFP: We had just talked about it, then the week before I was supposed to get AF my hubby says he wants to wait another year. Too late buddy. Haha!
What number child: #2 but this is 3rd pregnancy. First pregnancy ended in miscarriage @13 weeks due to blighted ovum. Second pregnancy, our daughter Maia who is now 3.5: hospital waterbirth, beautiful experience!
Family: husband and daughter
Baby's gender: I don't want to find out, life has so few genuine surprises, but my husband said he's been surprised enough this year thanks to this pregnancy, so we're going to find out. Hoping first & foremost for healthy pregnancy/baby and secondly for a boy
Names: List is long. Boy - I like Biblical names for boys so I'm leaning towards Samson or Jude. Girl - Aria is the frontrunner.
Birth preferences: I first had a beautiful hospital waterbirth attended by a midwife. Alas, they no longer accept Medicaid. I also hated the 45 min drive to the hospital while in labor. So I found a midwife closer to me (10 min away) who accepts Medicaid but I don't think I'll get a waterbirth this time around which I'm pretty bummed about
We'll see. Definitely planning to have a natural childbirth again. Dream would be homebirth but financially we can't swing that and I don't think I can get any homebirth midwives to come to the southside anyway.
