When is your estimated due date? March 26, 2008

Is this your first pregnancy? No, this is my third. First surprise pregnancy though

If not, how many kids do you have and are they boys or girls and what ages? I have a 4yo DD and a 2yo DS.

Do you know or will you find out the sex of your baby? This is supposed to be another boy!

Are you birthing at a hospital, birthing center or at home? Planning my first homebirth! My first birth was natural with an OB in a hospital, I felt like I had to fight everything. My second was again natural, but this time with a CNM in a hospital. That one went much better, no fighting, until the stay afterwards with hospital staff, at least. This time I'm with a different CNM who attends homebirths, and I'm very excited to avoid the hospital environment after the birth is over.

What have you loved about being pregnant? Not much, this time. It's pretty demanding keeping up with 2 young kids and being pregnant at the same time. The thing I like most is having an excuse to make DH do things for me ("Can you get me a glass of water, honey?").

What have you not loved so much about being pregnant? Getting large and uncomfortable. Wasn't fun the first time, and it's even less enchanting the 3rd time around.

Where are you from?
Born and raised in the Seattle area, but lived in Colorado with DH (whose family lives there) for several years, fell in love with it, and now call it "home".

Currently residing? Suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland.

SAHM to Melinda (Oct '03), Jacob (Aug '05),  Alex (Apr '08), and baby.gif Malcolm (Sept 29, '11)

Is this your first pregnancy? Yes, after two years of trying and eventually resorting to IVF.

Do you know or will you find out the sex of your baby? We didn't think we would want to find out, but since we've had so many d*mn ultrasounds it seemed kind of silly not to - I didn't like the idea of a doctor knowing when we didn't! We are having one boy and one girl.

Are you birthing at a hospital, birthing center or at home? We wanted a homebirth so badly, but midwives can't attend twin homebirths in our state. So we'll be at a hospital with our midwife and an OB who's very supportive of natural birth.

What have you loved about being pregnant? Feeling wiggles, getting a big belly, eating a lot, and getting even closer to my husband

What have you not loved so much about being pregnant? Pubic symphysis pain. OW.

Where are you from? Hartford, CT

Currently residing? Los Angeles, CA

Mama to twins Wren and Robin, 3/3/08.
