I'm feeling great so far. Very excited! We're planning at waterbirth at a birth center with a midwife, doula, and both our moms to assist me and my DH.
It caught me off guard, really. So much so, that I cried (and not out of happiness, unfortunately). But after getting confirmation from our Midwife, and after telling my boss, I'm much more excited now.
We're planning a home, waterbirth. First one was hospital, waterbirth. I am soooooo looking forward to it!
My midwife if pleased that we don't want all the routine tests associated with pregnancy nowadays. (e.g. the quad-screen, ultrasounds, amnio, etc.) She's even going to listen to the heartbeat witht the fetoscope! And we are going to make sure the sex is a surprise (again!).
The dear little one is due early June, although dh is thinking mid- to late-June. We'll see!
Teaching wife & mama to my not so little ones - DS (10) and DD (8)
I've been feeling pretty yucky all day long, EXCEPT mornings, and the strangest things make me feel better -- last preg, curry gave me heartburn, this preg it's a ms-cure! (Well, it's too early yet for the whole heartburn stuff anyway!)
We've had our first mw appt -- sooo happy to have the same mw as the last pregnancy. I was a bit afraid that she'd never want to see me again (ha!) as I had an eclamptic seizure during delivery with DD#1.
Here's hoping delivery goes well this time, looking forward to chatting with you all.

hi, i'm annika and new here,
i'm 10 weeks pregnant and psyched, my little boy jakob will have a sister (thinkpinkthinkpink....). we tried to "make" the baby a few days before ovulation, so according to the books it should be a girl.....we'll see around may 28th, my edd. we'll have the baby at the hospital, i'm considering waterbirth and will definitely use hypnobirthing again during labor. i'm seeing a team of 4 midwifes whom i really like. i'd love to have a homebirth, had an easy delivery with my son in the hospital last time. but unfortunately my loving husband is freaking out at the thought of it. men....!
I am expecting baby #2 by the end of Dec.
I am planning a homewaterbirth, all by myself. Dh is welcome to be there, but is not sure if he can handle it.... my mom will be there, but for helping with dd and whatever I may need during labor. I will be "delivering" the baby myself, and am confident in my abilities. I have a wonderful Dr. as back up, who would love to observe a water birth, and I may end up inviting him as a friend, but as of right now want to keep it a "private affair". dd is almost 3, and can't wait for the baby to show up! I am planning to EC, as well, since dd just potty trained completely, and I don't look forward to doing the diaper thing again...
My feeling on the sex says it's a boy, we'll see in a few weeks...

This was a surprise! I am infertile without medications, and we were definitely not on ANY...big time shock but pleasant anyway.
I am due June 13, 2004.
Hoping for another girl since I have nothing left over that is boy!

We are currently interviewing midwives, and I'll probably have one of my doula friends assist, too.
In the meantime, I'm trying to eat enough protein and am totally craving melon...
