Hi All, resident lurker checking in!
My name is Dawn and I'm 28. Married to Daniel who is 27 (he enjoys teasing me about him being married to an older woman, even though its only by 6mo, heh) We met online, and I moved from Virginia to live here with him in beautiful Colorado. We have two furbabies also, Jackie a retired greyhound and Morrocco a long haired noisy cat, heh.
I have two wonderful children from my previous marriage, Olivia is 9 and Jamie is 7, they are both looking forward to the baby and every day ask me "do you think the baby will come tonight?"
I'm due May 6th, but have a feeling it will be sooner than that.
The u/s said this one is a lil girl, I'll believe it when the baby is born, since I didn't actually see any sex parts, we just had the tech write it down for us to look at later since the u/s was on Christmas eve. I have alot of gender neutral clothing just in case though!
The name we have picked out is Elliana. I'm still stuck on a middle name, I like Rose and DH likes Avleen so we haven't decided yet.
I'll be having a hospital birth, at first I was upset at that, but after my tour and talking at length to the nurse she assured me I can have/do just about what ever I want, and what I want isn't really out the ordinary she says (squat for birth, delay meds and eye gunk, delay cord cutting till it stops pulsing and using the tub/whirlpool for pain relief instead of medicine... etc) so now I'm actually looking a lil forward to it
I'll be breastfeeding, slinging and cloth diapering. The service just called me today and said they will start my deliveries on Monday! eek! so close!
I guess thats about it, I'll try to keep more active in the threads, I tend to just read them and not really have anything exciting to add.
