I like that, sticky babies.  My girls always ask if my body is keeping this one or is the baby not ready for us yet.  Fingers crossed for us all!

CGWife and Milano, my heart goes out to you both. Having a miscarriage is devastating. May you find some peace in the coming weeks. We will be thinking of you. And I agree with you, Milano, there have been so many losses on this board. Seeing as though I still have yet to hear my little one's heartbeat, I know miscarriage remains a real possibility for me as well. I hope and pray for all of our sakes that we will not be seeing anymore loss.

Wife to my heartbeat.gifDHheartbeat.gif since 2002, and mama to my AMAZING little girls (2/2009 & 3/2012), a sweet little angel1.gif in heaven (3/2008) and hoping for another healthybabyf.gif 1/20/2015!

Name:  mtn.mama

EDD: Valentines Day

Age: 40
Location: Alaska

How long it took to you to get your BFP: We decided it was time to make a baby and got pregnant the same night.  I knew at conception... I don't pee on sticks.

What number child is this for you: I believe it's #2 and #3!  I'm denying ultrasound and doppler until 20 weeks.

Family : DH, DD just turned 4, 30 dairy goats, 200 chickens, 2 dogs and a cat.

Birth plans/preferences: We live remote and are VBAC, so if there are 2 babies... we'll likely have a lovely, gentle hospital birth with a very cool OB whose wife is a doula/midwife.
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm a farmer, feeding 40-70 families a week.  My hubby is gone 6 months of the year flying and guiding big game hunts, and my Mom is our closest neighbor (a mile away).


chicken3.gif   We're remote ECing, unschooling, free ranging goat dairy farmers.

Name: leapdaymama

* EDD: Feb. 29th

* Age: 27

* Location: Chicago IL (just moved here from the East Coast)
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 1st try!
* What number child is this for you: #1
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): beloved husband and two tubby old cats

* Birth plans/preferences: homebirth at parents' house attended by 2 CNMs, husband, mother (who is also a homebirth CNM) with birth tub so potential waterbirth

*Anything else you'd like to share: I have always known I would choose homebirth if I was lucky enough to have healthy, low-risk pregnancies. I am thrilled that my husband, who is a doctor, has been open, supportive and excited even though homebirth is new to him and he knows a little too much about all the things that could (but probably won't) go wrong because of his experience with high-risk, high-intervention hospital births.

Hi, I'd love to join this group. 

 

Name: Vancouver Sarah
* EDD: Feb. 7th

* Age: 33

* Location: Vancouver, BC

* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 4 cycles

* What number child is this for you: #1

* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): It's just my DH and me!

* Birth plans/preferences: hospital birth with a midwife...VERY interested in trying hypnobirthing

* Anything else you'd like to share: Let me just say that it is such a relief to find this lovely group of like-minded moms/moms-to-be.  I've been lurking on another board (rhymes with maybe renter) and just didn't feel like I could connect with many of the ladies on there.  My sister suggested this forum, and I feel so much more at home.  As indicated above, I'm a first-time-mom.  We recently relocated to Canada from the midwest (for work).  Being so far from family during this time is difficult and, while we have some lovely friends here in Vancouver, we are the first among them to be pregnant.  I'm beyond excited to be able to go through this journey with all of you!
