Yay, mammamo and RuthieGirl! Due date buddies! ;) Congrats and best wishes to all!
Due on 12/12
I'm 39. Will be the big four-UH-oh unless baby decides to be unfashionably early.
This is baby #3 for us, two boys so far, we'll find out about this one in December.
This is the third time we've conceived on our first try. My husband is getting the big V as a Christmas present because we are definitely done after 3 and I am not taking any chances.
#1 was an "emergency" section, #2 was a hospital VBAC and #3 will likely be a hospital birth with an awesome midwife, though I am still considering a home birth.
Just wanna update mine...it's a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ariadne (ah-ree-ahd-nay) Grace. Still due Dec 31.
in love with and married to my best friend ♥ snuggling my baby girl Ari Grace, 12-4-11
Blastomom, don't blame you for not letting hubby near you until he's had the big V! DH and I talked about that very same thing at dinner last night...when we are done having children, he is going to have to have the big V done as well if he wants to even breathe in my general direction. lol
Congrats, Avery! Love the name! Beautiful!
Update on our baby...we're having another BOY! Yes, a name is picked out, but we won't be sharing until he arrives!
