Now that some of us are finding out gender, and many of us are firming up our birth plans...I think we should do and updated due date list (and I'm willing to organize)!

Include your infomation in the subject of your message.

Due date | User Name | First name (optional) | Pregnancy # | Child # | Boy/Girl/Surprise | Birth intentions (location, waterbirth, VBAC, MW or OB etc.)

Oh and if you have trouble fitting your info in the title, just make it the first line of your post!

Not sure if we'll do waterbirth or just use the tub for laboring.

Never posted in the first thread so I'm glad we're doing a new one.

This is kiddo #3. We are planning a homebirth....ds2 was a waterbirth, but I knew he would be from way, way early on in the pregnancy.
I'm not feeling the same pull this time--so I'm not sure if I'll just labor in the water or birth there
This is our first homebirth--and I am VERY excited about it--other than having to get the house cleaned

But I have time...
and that is what the nesting instinct is all about, right?

Haven't decided 100% if we're renting a tub this time... will probably birth on dry land but use water in labor. We're finding out the sex of the baby probably at the beginning of January when I have an ultrasound (not scheduled yet).

Hoping for a waterbirth not sure if I'll like it though. I tried with #1 and didn't like it at all. Maybe this time!

Still not 100% sure of the HBAC, but definitely a VBAC staying at home as long as I can.

We are planning a Home Birth After Cesarean and our MW is wonderful! Have had alot of fears cropping up lately due to some sad outcomes on a birth list I am on, but I think it is a blessing b/c it is forcing me to sort through some of them. Don't post often, but look forward to the rest of this preggo journey with you!

hehehe I have to be a trouble maker and refuse to have a due date

I'm actually enjoying not having a DATE to tell people.

Thank you so much for taking care of this Erin

And to all the new mamas!!!

There we go, pretty updated. I still need to find out if the hospital has a family birth center there since I would rather use that. Originally I wanted a MW attended : but sigh... maybe next time. Thanks for keeping the organization afoot mama!

May 5 - maybebaby - Cheryl - Child #4 - don't know yet! - home/waterbirth

We'll likely find out the gender this Thursday. Wasn't sure what to call my birth plans...likely I'll labor in the water again but will then birth the baby on dry land. I didn't like pushing in the water last time...
