Joining ya'll today.

I am about 5-6 weeks along with our second child. I am not giving a due date b/c it caused too much stress last time when I went two weeks past EDD and started having to screen my calls and answer with, "No baby's not here yet." So I'm just saying that I'll probably be late April/early May.

I really enjoyed being pregnant with DS and hope this pregnancy is as good.

I am hoping/planning for a homebirth which I'm really excited about b/c I just moved from a state that wasn't very MW friendly and it was pretty much impossible to HB there unless you went UC which I didn't want to do. This state is MUCH more friendly to MWs and I'm excited about going that route with this babe.

Can't wait to get to know ya'll more.

Welcome!! I don't think any of us planned to ring your phone off the hook, though.

Congrats and welcome! I absolutely agree...I'm not sharing a due date, either. My dad and others called me CONSTANTLY when I went to 42 weeks and I just can't take it again. In fact, I'm telling my dad that I am due a month later than I actually am. I have discussed with my (new) Dr. that I felt tremendous pressure over my due date last time and he has agreed to say "late March/early April" and base the due date he uses on ultrasounds instead of the all knowing wheel.

Happy 9 months!

Laura
