We have one daughter, Lakin Leigh, born on July 16, 2001.
We are planning an unassisted HBAC with prenatal care by a midwife.
Mama to two tween girls and a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12)... and now expecting baby #4 in April 2014.

My name is Robin and I am due August 14 with #4. It's a little boy. I am 27 weeks now, and getting kinda anxious. Also I have gestational diabetes I control it by diet. I wasn't too shocked with this diagnosis, both of my parents are diabetic. Also had it with my 2 prior pregnancies.
Just wanted to say HI!
I'm due on July 28th, with our second baby. We do not know the sex and have no intentions of finding out, and we are far from settled on names
I'm having a water birth with midwives that work in a hospital setting. There are 5 of them that rotate. I had them when I gave birth to Logan and just loved them!
Edited to add that we are using a midwife in a birthing center attached to a hospital. As natural as we can possibly be.
my 1st was a c-sec due to the placenta abrupting after too much pitocin (given due to water breakage)
that experience lead me to get MUCH more info the next time around-- found ICAN (the international cesarean awareness network) 2nd time was a wonderful, totally natural vbac homebirth.
two 1st trimester miscarriages, new husband, and 11 years later.
now i'm pregnant with my 3rd child and having what seems to be every complication under the sun. 1st trimester hemmhorage. severe asthma exacerbation ( on 5 meds- flovent, flonase, albuterol, singulair, and prednisone), possible gestational diabetes, failed the triple screen(stupid test anyway), and am on bedrest. will let everyone know what happens next.
Shelley, mom to dd 5/19/01, ds 9/06/02, and ds 4/01/07. Lost babe 4/09
Had ds in a birth home..... think I'm doing that again because I live in a warehouse space and it just seems to strange to have #2 here.... still debating though we'll see!
ds says he wants a little sister.
I have 2 kids, age 4 and 5 and am a SAHM. My son is not thrilled about the baby but says he wants it to be a boy. My daughter is very thrilled and says I'm going to have 1 boy and 1 girl! :LOL
I hope she's not right!
I am also looking into finding if there are any midwives in my area - I'm sure there are. I hope to have a natural birth, but in the hospital as my hubby and I own a store and it is right next to our house. It would just be too annoying to be dealing with work if we were needed! Better to be at the hospital for us!!
Have a dd named Violet, she's nearly two.
I'm due in Feb on Valentine's day
WOHM married to SAHD, living the dream w/our: 3 girls (14,12,10) and 3 boys (7,5,3) and tie-breaker due Jan 2014
Best of luck to all of you pregnant mama's and mama-to-be's!!
I have Type I diabetes and will be praying that this next baby isn't 11 pounds like the first one.
