I'm Nancy (28) and I'm due with #2 in late September.
I know when I conceived, so based on that, my date is 09/22. However, we are using 09/26 (based on LMP) to buy me some time if I am "late."
I am married to Robert (32). This is his first baby and birth. Our daughter Emma was born to my first husband, Michael, and I on April 12, 2001. Michael was killed in a car accident when Emma was 5 months old. Rob and I have been married almost 7 months and are 4 months pregnant!
I did not plan to have Emma in a hospital. I had a wonderful waterbirth planned with my midwives on Miami Beach. However, she was breech and didn't want to turn. So, after her due date passed and labor began, we chose a c-section. My midwife's husband did the c-section and it was a wonderful experience, as far as c-sections go! I got my essential oils and special music and even cloth diapers for my baby! However, we were separated for 6 hours, which was horrible. But, when she came to me, she was suckling and started nursing right away. We've been nursing every since!
So - with this baby (Mary Ella or John Michael) we are planning a home VBAC and are super excited about it!
