Congratulations to all the new mamas!!
You can add me to the list....again!!! I'm due April 30th, though I tend to go earlier than 40 weeks. Looking forward to posting more and lurking less this time around!

Hi Amyjean! I see you put me on the expecting list! Thank you! Can you add a link to my first UC? (10/25/04 http://littlelovies.com/JOSHIE.html) Thanks!

Okay, question...Am I the only one who needs to work through her fears again?
I used to think, hey, now that I've UC'd next time will be sooo much easier! But now that I'm actually expecting anothe 'lil babe, I find myself needing to work through my fears of UC again. Is that normal? or am I just paranoid? lol

Hi Rach, I don't think you're alone in having a few fears. I'm certain you have the time to work through them.

'm not afraid of the birth or birthing or any of that...just the exhaustion afterwards and not being able to handle all of them. I sometimes wish they had pause buttons so I can fully see to someon's needs before the sibling starts up....

Thorin William was born August 25th @ 6:12 pm after almost two hours of labor. He weighed in at 10 pounds 8 ounces after pooping four times. 22 inches long. Blond/reddish hair.
He is a perfect nurser and so beautiful. I will post a more detailed story as soon as I can. We are all well and happy and soaking him in.
He was born uc in the water at home while daddy was washing his hands in the bathroom. We called my midwife a short while after he was born and she helped to clean up and check us out.

Ack! That would have me at around a seventeen hour labor! Or - what if labor times are doubling with each uc? That would make mine be 2^17 hours long! (131072 hours - almost 15 years)

OK, OK, obviously someone has been spending a lot of time with her 16yo homeschooler and advanced math topics :

At any rate... CONGRATULATIONS BRANDI AND FAMILY!!!

Huge congrats, Brandi! That is one big boy you have! :LOL

rachel.... I wish you lived closer! It would be awesome to have some IRL contacts that did things similar to our ways of doing it. We're about 2-3 hours south of you, probably.

amyjeans... thanks for asking about me. I'm just hanging in there. I'm dealing with lots of good contractions that don't lead into labor. Wondering when this little person will be ready to face the world. EDD is the 2nd, but we'll have to wait and see when the actual birth day is. It won't be long now, though!

hey everyone. hope the weekend is going great!
Just about 40 weeks here, bouncing on my exercise ball. I feel like this baby is waiting for me to get all my last minute errands and projects done. Maybe he'll show up around the new moon...ha, or on Labor Day.
Still need to wash diaper covers & baby blankets, clean our old apartment to get our security deposit back, do a painting, and go grocery shopping. WHOA, I just felt my first strong contraction a minute ago. I could feel it somewhere low...I wanna say my sacrum..but not sure... Maybe I won't get all that stuff done?? I had to get off my ball. Lol. Maybe I bounced him too hard? :LOL
Now I forgot what I was gonna originally post... I'll come back when my brain is working.

I've finally made it into the 12th week. Still puking, not being able to eat much of any food. Seems this baby wants me to be vegetarian right now, which is odd since I craved wild red meats with my son! (Like moose)

It's so exciting to read everyone's birthstories. I look forward to the rest of ya'll due soon! Congrats to everyone who's birthed baby recently! Ya'll are awesome mammas!

Hi Ladies.
With rainbowmoon's permission, I wanted to let you all know that our dear sister's husband passed away last week. They are still unclear as to the reason and she (obviously) is going through a terrible time right now.
This is a very sad day indeed to learn of someone's love passing on. I hope you consider sending her some well wishes and prayers for her family.
Perhaps we could think of something to do for her, send her. Any ideas?
Thanks for reading.
Please see her thread
Lots of Love
amyjean
