Hooray! Thanks for starting us off, Jodie!
Name: Tee (a nickname for my unusual, highly Googlable name
Due Date(Actual date, "beginning," "middle," or "end" of February if you prefer): February 1? February 3? The online calculators I've used all say Feb 1, but my midwife says Feb 3, and my pregnancies usually go pretty long, so... "beginning of February" is probably pretty good.
Location: just outside Washington, DC
How long it took you to get your BFP: ...Zero cycles? We'd been planning to start trying in July! HEY, what do you know?!
What number child this is for you: This is our third.
Family (spouse, other children, pets, etc.): Husband, son age 5, daughter age 3, two little dogs.
Baby's gender (hopes/guesses): No idea. I was DEAD wrong with our son, and was too afraid to hope for a girl to make any guesses when our daughter came along.
Birth plans/preferences: Homebirth with MW. Trying to figure out whether the kids would like to be there, too, which would mean a doula/sitter, plus my mom...? It might start to get pretty crowded in our little house!
Blog/website/etc: I have never been organized enough to really maintain a blog.
Anything else you would like to share: Both older kids were born at home. This was especially fortunate when our daughter was born with a surprise bilateral cleft lip and cleft palate--it was SUCH a blessing that we got to absorb this news all together, quietly and lovingly, instead of having her whisked off right away by some doctor. The official diagnoses did come later that day, but first we got to know each other a little bit, and we're forever grateful for those moments.
And... I'm SO excited to be here with you all! Looking forward to getting to know you.
