Kathy- I laughed when I read about you trying to cross your eyes I also love the name Nathan

Andrea- Congrats on your first!! What exactly is Hummus?

Amanda- Congrats on your first!! I love arts and crafts too! My aunt was trying to teach me to quilt last time I was back home, but I just don't have the time to do it.

We have a lot of FTMs here! I'm very excited for you and it finally happened last july/august. Now I can't wait to go through it all over again!

For all the seasoned mommies any all important wisdom you'd like to impart to the first timers?

I hope I get my appetite back too, I'm starving but nothing sounds even remotely good. My poor family is going to have to suffer with minimal cooking suppers for the next little while...I feel bad for them.

Oh and I have to agree that you need to take what people tell you with a grain of salt. Just smile and continue on your way. A lady stopped me in the Home Depot when I was pregnant with our first that asked if my "turkey timer" had popped yet. I asked her what she was talking about and asked to see my belly button to see if I was "ready" yet. I just chuckled...it never did pop. Guess my boys weren't ever "ready" Crazy lady!

Congrats! The closest I'll ever get to ER medicine is watching ER :P I just don't have the stomach! You can also check with the midwives and see if they have birthing suites in office. Mine does and if we aren't in our townhome by then I'll probably birth there.

Aimee- Thats nuts!! I don't have a pregnant story, but the other day I was buying a can of Formula (long story short BF didn't work for DS and I, but I'm gonna work harder for this baby!) and the elderly lady at the counter looked at me and had the gall to say "SO do babies really like this stuff?" I then proceeded to defend myself and now looking back I should have left the can there and walked away. *sigh*

Hi Mommy2Austin

NCB = natural child birth? That's a good question. I don't know. I would like to. I feel like I have a good raport with by OB and we have our first official pregnancy visit on 5/29, so this is something on my list to talk about.

I've read a lot about OB vs. midwife, hospital vs. birth center vs. homebirth, natural vs. intervened childbirth and I'm still on the fence about a lot of things. I'm hoping to get some opinions and different perspectives.

I think the important thing is that you get the experience that you want! If it's in the hospital with drugs and an OB that is perfectly ok! If it's at home without anyone there, thats fine too!

Well Im strictly a Pampers person but somtimes durring weeks when money is tight Ill buy an off brand like walmart cheepies. Im kinda thinking of giving Cloth diapering a try but i still have some icky thoughts about it, I like being able to just throw out a poopy diaper rather than having to clean it. I guess im just lazy.

Name: Drew
Age: 29
Location: East Coast
Husband/Partners name(age): DH is 33 this year
Children's name(s)/age(s): this will be our first
Due Date: 1/10/08 by my calculations (Fertility Awareness Method, and very text book chart) and 1/12/08 by that stupid pregnancy wheel, although I am happy about the later due date as that will be my official due date and will at least give me two extra days before I'm "overdue" since my midwife absolutely won't birth at home beyond 14 days past the due date.
Hopeful for B/G: I want both so I don't care which comes first.
Homebirth or Hospital: Homebirth
CD or Sposies: cloth, with an eye for elimination communication -I will be with baby 24 hrs mostly so this shouldn't be too difficult.
Favorite Food: Over-medium egg heavily peppered and lightly salted in a mini whole wheat pita pocket with spreadable cheddar cheese. I eat this everyday for breakfast and sometimes look forward to eating it the next morning all day or all night long. I seriously crave it constantly.
Least Favorite Chore: mopping and vaccumming -they tie for worst.
Favorite Color: That beautiful shade of kelly (primary) green, I buy almost anything if it's in that color.
Can you cross your eyes: Not really, but I can flip my lower eyelids inside of my eyes (the opposite of when people flip their top lids out)
What board do you lurk on but not post: vax board. We really don't want to vax, but are conflicted.
Addition Fun Facts: I am a very crunchy girl, but very untypical crunchy as I am very into fashion and makeup and look like a typical high-maintence yuppy. I plan on wearing my 4" heels all through pregnancy. When Sara Jessica Parker was pregnant she was/is my pregnancy idol.

Name: Sara
Age: 29
Location: Washington state---Seattle area
Husband/Partners name(age): Daniel (30)
Children's name(s)/age(s): Reid (25 months)
Due Date: 1/8/08
Hopeful for B/G: can't control it, so why worry?
Homebirth or Hospital: Homebirth this time. Freestanding birth center with my first.
CD or Sposies: Cloth---CPF to begin with, then I have a stash of larger little beetles & wool covers for later. I'm also thinking I might start EC with this one, which I didn't really do with my son. I started toddler EC, I guess, with him around 18 months.
Favorite Food: Butter. Sick, but true.
Least Favorite Chore: Sweeping.
Favorite Color: blue
Can you cross your eyes: yes
What board do you lurk on but not post: GD?
Additional Fun Facts: I'm a cartographer and have worked at home for the past 6 years, PT since my son was born. I recently stopped working completely, though, and will probably take a few years off until my youngest starts school.

Mama to DS 3/05 and DD 1/08

Additional Fun Facts: I love to chop wood. I let Dh use the log splitter to break down the big logs. Then I prefer to chop it down further by hand. And, I used to be a good shot with a long bow.
