We found out on Sunday that we're expecting #2 sometime in the last couple of weeks in June

I really had no idea I was pregnant because I have really disastrously messed up cycles and I was almost positive I hadn't even ovulated yet for the month! Therefore I have almost no idea what my EDD is. I'm kind of leaning toward th 26th of June though.

DS #1, Zion, is 17 months old today
Zion's birth was terribly traumatic for me. 36 hours of a failed induction, resulting in a c-section where the anesthesia didn't work so they had to put me completely under in the middle of it. He was 10lbs8oz and had flipped from head down to breech and then back again in the last two weeks.
So, this time I'm going all out to avoid having that happen again. My midwife will be a two hour trip from my home and since I'm a VBAC in order for her to attend me I'll have to live in the town two hours away for the last 4 weeks of the pregnancy. I have no idea how we're going to be able to do this, but I have no choice.

I'm really hoping for a girl, but of course healthy is number one on my list

Wow, it sounds like you'll have quite a challenge getting your VBAC, but I'm glad you've found a way! I hope everything goes well for you. Congratulations on having #2 on the way!
