Name: Mandi
Age: 24
Due Date: 12/10/07
Pregnancy #: 2
Family (partner and/or other children): Husband Nate; son Levi, 10 months
Birth Plans/Preferences: I hope to deliver naturally in a hospital. I am currently looking for a professional who will avoid all interventions unless absolutely medically indicated. I want to have a home birth one day, but I hemorrhaged with my last child, and I am not comfortable with it this time around.
Anything else you'd like to share: As I hinted in the answer to the previous question, I am still looking for a provider. We visited one office with a CNM on staff, but never got to see her. She was out attending a delivery, so we saw the doctor instead. The office's policies were to leave my husband out of everything (medical history, most of the ultrasound). I would prefer my medical proxy to be well-informed, thank you! Needless to say, we told them where to put their policies.

Pregnancy #: 2
Family (partner and/or other children): DH Bill, Fraternal twins Phoebe & Fiona who are 25-months old
Birth Plans/Preferences: Hoping for a VBAC. I had a C-section with the twins because Twin A was transverse breech
Anything else you'd like to share: This pregnancy is a surprise. We were neither TTC nor TTA, but I assumed because we did IVF for the twins that I couldn't conceive on my own. We're very happy & want a third child, but I am anxious about whether this baby will stick around. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

SAHM to F & P, : fraternal twins born 3/05, : I, born 12/07 & at 5 weeks in July 2009

Birth Plans/Preferences: My preference is using a midwife and delivering at a birth center. I'm not sure that will be an option, so am looking for a m/w and deciding between a hospital birth and home birth (not sure DH will get on board for hb, though)

Thrilled to be here, mamas!

Name: Erin

Age: 31

Due Date: 12/20

Pregnancy #: 2

Family (partner and/or other children):
I my DH for being so fantastic about our second surprise pregnancy! We have one fantastic DS.

Birth Plans/Preferences: VBAC!

Anything else you'd like to share: I am hoping my DS (only 14 months) nurses throughout the pregnancy so I can tandem them. To me, the only downside of this pregnancy is that his milkies may go away. I'll be here learning more from you experienced mamas who have tandemed.

coolshine.gif Mama to DS ('06), DD ('08), and DD (9.18.11).

Birth Plans/Preferences: Natural Birth at hospital. I have a really good OBGYN this time.

Anything else you'd like to share: We had been actively TTC for almost a year. I had just about given up and stopped charting. I had some early symptoms but I chalked it up to my body faking me out again, so I decided I would take the test this morning, on my birthday, and got a positive. Awesome birthday present for me.

Name: Karen (long and silly story about how the "h" got into my screen name)
Age: 32
Due Date: New Year's Eve!
Pregnancy #: #1
Family (partner and/or other children): Husband ... and I would be remiss if I didn't mention my furbaby kitties, Maxwell and Taki.
Birth Plans/Preferences: Natural hospital birth with a doula
Anything else you'd like to share: I have pre-existing hypertension (currently under control with pregnancy-safe meds) so I'm "stuck" with an ob/gyn (she's been great, though). I am hoping to avoid an overmedicalized experience by working closely with my care provider to advocate for the type of experience I'd like to have.

We waited for six years before even trying for this baby, so I am really thrilled and grateful to be here!

Congrats to all of you!

K(h)aren. Writing/editing mama to my quixotic Sam (12.07) and my intrepid William (01.11).

Hi everyone, this is my first post--I've lurked a lot though.
We are expecting our second child on December 24th! It was totally an accident and the only way this happened if I ovulated way off schedule, needless to say, this was a big surprise.
We have a 2 yr old dd now. We've had a few miscarriages but I've now been diagnosed with a clotting problem, so we're hoping that by taking blood thinners that this baby will be fine.
I'm still having trouble believing I'm actually pregnant and spending much of my time in denial.
