Hi all! I have to admit I haven't read this whole thread- I have been enjoying Marcos for the past 10 weeks. I can't believe he's that old. This is us: : But I just wanted to pop in and say congratulations to Kate (welcome Finn!) And to you, Brandi- I was just thinking of you yesterday. It's all going to be OK, you know.

Cross your fingers for me that I will not be rejoining this thread as a pregnant mama already! We had a technical difficulty last week that has us a little nervous... :LOL Yeah, I do think I got my period back at the beginning of this month, even though I'm exclusively bfing. : I so do not want to have another baby when Marcos is only 11 months. : But que sera, sera.

Thanks, Brandi. I am close...it's our first, so it's a bit surreal. Everything seems normal, yet at any point, everything is about to change! I'm very happy about it, though! And who knows - maybe tonight's full moon will play a part. We did the dark/light thing when ttc, plus, my conception date matched my birth day's moon position very closely. You know so much about it - hope I'm not making it sound too simplified...!

wow, that is neat that the moon stuff matched up!! Have you checked to see when the same phase of the moon you conceived under is coming up? I noticed that all three of my girls were born under the same phase/illumination that they were conceived under. Not sure if this is just the way I gestate or if this is one of those birth/moon things. Kind of neat to check out.
Here is the moon phase link in case you need it.

pretty close...I am EST, mind you, but in Central time, the results were these:

My birth date:
Illuminated Fraction: 0.967
1.5 days after full moon

Conception date:
Illuminated Fraction: 0.988
0.9 days until full moon

Today:
Illuminated Fraction: 0.987
1.1 days after full moon

close enough...?

Ok so this is how my last 2 went....what moon phase do you predict my new bug?

DS#2 conceived under new moon
born under 1st quarter moon

DD#1 conceived under new moon
born under 1st quarter moon

This one
conceived under full moon and Im due under the full moon in march

Looking at that im guessing either the 1st week of march or the 1st week of april, depending on which moon cycle i go into labor?

thanks SOOO much for the congrats, mamas. You all brought tears to my eyes...

Hevea!!! Maybe tonight will be it! I had NO signs at all (except a dream the night before labor of a newspaper with the headline "IT'S TIME!" :LOL )
Thanks so much for stopping in here. I haven't been to the Feb mamas thread so I have no idea what's going on -- I hope to visit there today.

Gotta go for now, Baby Finn just peed and got our sling all wet!!! :LOL

me too!! i'm chompin' at the bit now. i always figured, 'well kate still has to birth, i have a ways to go.' same thing with a friend of mine here who was a month ahead of me, but she birthed 2 weeks early. so now everytime we go into the co-op here, i get asked when it's happening and where's the baby. everyone is so ready and excited to meet the babe.

we got our carseat in the mail today, and although i'm going to have to wash it a bunch to get the nasty detergent smell out of it, we have it. that was the final needed thing on our list. well, bendy straws, but we don't want 1000 of them. we're hoping to find a couple somewhere rather than buy a whole big pack.

on sunday, i'll have made it 36 weeks. i definitely have felt a shift in the babe's energy. before, it kind of swirled safe inside me, but now it feels like the energy is moving down my yoni. i can't have sex with dh even b/c it feels like it's going against the tide of the energy flow (much to his chagrine!)

ahhh, little finn, hi buddy! you made it! i'm still so tickled that you're here.

Sprinkle--Ive had that change as well where it seems all the babys energy is moving down. Sooo much pressure there now, I don't think i want t oeven attempt having sex :LOL

--Ok I have a long post coming so warning mini-vent inside---
Y'all can ignore this post I just need to vent a little. And since you guys know that i wanted to have this baby without midwives I feel "safe" saying it all here.

I did not want to go to midwives, I can take care of myself just like i did last time and how I have this time too. I don't need someone here to catch my baby or anything else like that. Birth happens and IMO for me happens without the medical ppl around.

But Nate felt we needed a midwife this time because of his cmmand. Of course my thinking is that what they don;t know doesn;t hurt anyone and wtf business is it of theirs anyways HOW the hell we have our baby. Its not their business and none of their concern. But whatever, it made him feel better so I gave in.

We were told at the intial consult our out of pocket fee would be $500, which includes the sterile tray fee used at the birth and the assistant fee. Ok I was fine with that. But today we just got the bill for what the insurance isn't covering (we had to drop to standard for me to be able to use this practice as they are out-of-network). So anyways with us having to pay 20% lus the deductible for me and the baby it comes out to $1053 PLUS the $500! Thats half of what their actual fees are for a non-insured patient.

I am upset b/c we will be paying them for the next friggin year. I was fully prepared for $500 but not $1500. Not to mention this information was supposed to have been given to us in the beginning of the pregnancy, not in the last 4 weeks so that leaves us even more unprepared. This just irks me. I don't fault them because I know they need t obe paid for doing their job, that really doesn't bother me since this is the line of work I would love to go in.

What bothers me is having to pay for something I didn't want and don't need. I still don't want them here, as much as I like both the midwives. I feel like I have lost a part of my pregnancy by having to have it monitored by outside sources. I know y'all probably don't understand that feeling of loss of power but its bugged me this entire pregnancy. I have felt very threatened and I can't really explain why. I am just rambling now sorry

Oh Jennie -- if anyone can understand that loss of power it's me!! I know exactly how you feel! We paid them $1100 (we're self-employed, so we have no insurance) and that was for 4 visits. I, too, hated paying for something I didn't want. I'm so sorry you were sticker-shocked!!! Big (((HUGS)))) to you!!!!

Gee I just realized some of that didn't apply to this forum lol it was posted to some military friends on a small lil email list we have for gossiping

i can't imagine 1100 for 4 visits *ouch* i don't fault them the money, obviously. I know its their livliehood. It just irks me to no end that we didn't receive thi smonths ago like we should have and the feelinsg it yanks up by having to pay for something that I simply do not need.

I guess now would be a bad time to say something snarky to my dh like...gee happy we have midwives now? As much as I like V & S they are still under the medical role and they will be invading my space. I wonder how long I can keep dh from calling them when I am in labor. I'm just a grumpy very pregnant mama bear!
