There is a mama pampering swap for the March 08 DDC in the swap forum (closing on 8/22). You need 150 posts and 6 months to access talk amongst ourselves and the trading post (which is swaps, co ops, MDC giving, and a place to sell things)

Allison wife and mom to four.

My favourite part is when Im about 18 weeks. WHen I can feel the baby and Kim can feel the baby moving - when we find out that everythig is ok at the ultrasound, and we can find out if its a boy or girl, come up with the name etc

7. Midwife or OB?

Midwives. I cant afford an OB much to my disappointment. Most women in Australia see Midwives then many have an attending Dr at the birth but only those with private insurance (not manY) see an OB during pregnancy

10. What do you hope is different with this labor?

I hope I dont have to be induced with this one - and I really really hope I dont go overdue!!

Also I dont want an epidural. I will have pethidene earlier to stop me getting to the stage where I need the epidural like I did last time. I tried to go all natural and it didnt go so well!

3) How many kids do you have? How many do you want to have?

This is such a hot topic in our house right now!!!
We have one (and one on the way)
Kim wants 3 - but no more - and I want at least 4, up to 6.
