Hello! I'm Sherry and this is my first post on the Mothering.com UC board ... I am currently pregnant with our 5th baby - due somewhere around 12/21 (Merry Christmas!) ... we're planning our second unassisted pregnancy and birth.

You can read our first UC baby's birth story here:
http://ucbirth.com/dylan.htm

I look forward to getting to know all of the other UC Mamas on this board!

WELCOME

I tried to view your birth story, but it wouldn't work. However, I did notice it was on the Shanley's UC website, so I'll look around there.

Carrie,
Congratulations! How has the response been to your good news? I braced myself for people's negative reactions but pretty much, people have surprised me and been happy for us. We haven't shared our news with too many from DH's family though ... his mother will be negative and he doesn't feel like dealing with it, so he's just not telling her yet. Mostly people have been excited for us - especially at the thought of a Christmastime baby.

Hi Amy! I try to keep "Mamaperk" on most of my boards so people will recognize me.

How are your adorable kiddos doing?
