I was thinking of this earlier today? How should it be done? Ive seen them before organized by edd and by the number of kids you have "baking # 2". I guess if you do it the first way, you can do them as they come in. The second way would require reformatting each time someone new joined.

ok... i want to do one and i did suggest it.  the only reason i didn't actually start it is that i have such a history of m/c and i didn't want to be responsible for updating if i ended up going out of the ddc...

BUT i will focus on the positive and if i do end up out of the ddc, then somebody can just copy/paste the info into a new thread and take over.  so i will close my eyes and jump:

 

on the other boards, the person who started it transfers info into the original 1st post.  (i think)

i'll update and post when i get the info into the first spot and i'll pm the mod to see if we can sticky it...

_________________________________________________________________

tell us this...   i stole it from the sept 2011 ddc who stole it from somebody else...

* Name: K

* EDD: February 1

* Age: 25 (26 when babe comes)
* Location: Minnesota
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: we weren't really trying, nor preventing:)
* What number child is this for you: 2
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Fiance, DD who is 3.5 years and one chocolate lab, Jaz.
* Birth plans/preferences: Hospital natural birth
* Anything else you'd like to share: I am getting married August 20!  This pregnancy wasn't being prevented by any means, but we weren't necessarily trying, either.  Soon-to-be DH's sister is getting married next summer (once in April in her home town and once in May in NYC, where she has been living for 8 years).  We didn't want to wait until after the weddings out there, but knew that we needed to be able to go to the weddings (flying) and such.  So...I guess now is the time!  I couldn't be more excited though.  Although I'm going to have a ton of questions when it comes to flying and buying a plane ticket for a 3 month old:) Yay!

Name: Dora
 

* EDD: Feb 10th

 

* Age: 29 (Will be 30 when baby arrives)
 

* Location: Chicago, IL
 

* How long it took to you to get your BFP: First cycle trying!! I'm kind of stupefied. Wasn't expecting it to work that quickly.
 

* What number child is this for you: My first! I'm terrified! But excited!
 

* Family: My DH, we've been together for 5.5 years. And our doggie, Otis. Pictured :)
 

* Birth plans/preferences:To be honest, all this stuff is so new to me and I'm still figuring out what I want. I'm the first of my closest girlfriends to have a baby. Right now I'm thinking a certified nurse-midwife program at a hospital I respect (I work in the health field and know who's good and who's bad around here).
 

* Anything else you'd like to share: I'm finishing a graduate degree right now (public health), I will be done in December, I don't know how I'm going to focus on everything I need to get done by then!

Also,I mentioned on an earlier intro post that I'm Jewish and my husband is Jamaican. I'm really interested in other moms-to-be of biracial or inter-cultural children.


Happily married for 5 years. Tried for our first baby 6/2011, got preg right away, and miscarried. Took a 4 month break, and then had nothing but infertility & a few early miscarriages until 12/2012 when we learned I had a lumpy edge in my uterus. Doc removed it and now we are trying again....

* EDD: mid-feb

* Age: almost 30 (in a few weeks)
* Location: Chicagoland

* How long it took you to get your BFP: 6 months

* What number child is this for you: Second

* Birth plans/preferences: home/water birth
* Anything else you'd like to share: My son is almost 18 months old and we still nurse a lot.  I want to eat high-raw for this pregnancy but after the potluck I hosted tonight someone left the rest of their gouda and I finished it.  Maybe I'll aim for a 80% raw / 20% cheese diet?

Hi, all!

Name: Laura

EDD: February 18-19

Age: 30 (5.18)

Number of Cycles TTC: Technically 2nd, Had a Chemical 3 Cycles ago, which was a whoops!, and decided to start TTC early

What number child for me: #2

Family: DH Chris (25) & Odin (4.22.09) + Dog Bailey

Birth plans: Been planning for an HBAC since last summer and will keep planning for one

Any other tidbits: Still nursing very frequently my 25+ month old DS and suspect will likely be tandem nursing. Also, actually hoping to gain little weight this pregnancy since I will be eating much healthier and have plenty of fat to give to my growing baby so I'm willing to take all advice regarding best foods for nourishing us (casein-free though for my nursling).


Wife to Chris 12/27/07. DS1 Earth Day 2009 (4/22). DS2 March 6th, 2012. nocirc.gif saynovax.gif winner.jpg femalesling.GIFfamilybed2.gif  vbac.gif
