Newbie Due in Jan

Hello!

My name is Amber and I'm expecting my first around the 27th of January. I'm so happy to have stumbled across this site and find that there are so many women out there that share some of the same beliefs I do. It'll be nice to learn new things from mothers who have already experienced natural parenting and to freely be able to ask questions without worrying about being judged for my "hippie" beliefs. Haha.

Looking forward to getting to know some of you ladies!

Thank you both!

Yes this is my first. I'm scared and excited and nervous and going out of my mind crazy impatient! Thus far I haven't had any issues, it's been wonderful really... unless you count recently I've been having trouble falling asleep but I don't know if its pregnancy related or something else. Haha.

Amber. Expecting #1 in January 2015. Married to a fireman. 2 fur babies - Golden Retriever & a chubby tabby cat.

Welcome! I'm due on the 26th with baby number 4. How are enjoying feeling that little one tumbling around in your womb-tastic gymnasium? Mine likes to bounce off the bladder and down onto my cervix

Hi Amber! I'm in week 25 with baby #2 . Try some hot water + honey + apple cider vinegar for sleep (google search). Doesn't PUT me to sleep, but it helps a lot. I drink a little almost every night.

Loving mama to A (8/5/2010) R (1/3/2015) and DSD (16).

Welcome! I'm due on the 21st with #2.
And I agree, it is nice to find others who are like minded.

My "Guess Date" is Jan 2nd.... A bit nervous I must admit, this entire "natural" childbirth process hasn't been the easiest thing to navigate my way through, let alone all the weird looks I get from family, friends and outsiders who have no problem telling me THEIR opinions... Water Birth? Non- medicated birth? Vegan diet? Cloth Diapers? I could go on and on....Nice to have a place where I don't feel so alienated.
