Somehow I didn't even see this sticky thread

My name is Lyn and I am married to Arron, we've only been married for 2 months, but we have been living together for almost 6 years.

I have 3 children from a previous marriage and he has 2 children from a previous marriage. We have 1 together (2 1/2) and expecting our 2nd together. So, we're a regular brady bunch I guess.

We couldn't be happier about this pregnancy and we are hoping for a girl!

Yesterday we had our first midwife appointment and had a transvaginal ultrasound and saw the baby for the first time with it's little heart beating DH actually said to me "Well, now you're like really pregnant, I feel like I gotta keep you cushioned and do everything so you don't have to" OKAY! DEAL! I have been feeling SOOOO tired and nauseated lately that I'd be more than happy to let him

Ok, so anyway, this is my 7th pregnancy (2 miscarriages + 4 children + this pregnancy) and I always get a weird look from people when they ask. Why are big families looked down on? (sorry seperate rant)

Hi, I'm Stella. I have a 3 year old son, Toby. He just had a birthday (we found out about this one the morning of his birthday!) and he still loves "milky". I'm 27 and married to Nate for 5 years. We live in Northern California. I'm really happy to be pregnant, but my partner is frieked out looking forward to a fun pregnancy! Oh yeah, I'm due the 24th.

Stella, wild and gentle mama to Toby(12/14/04), Cedar(8/17/08), Luca (3/15/14), and one on the way!

Oops, I forgot to post here...

This is our second child, our first was born in February of 06. Due date of this little one is somewhere around Aug. 19. I'll be seeing the same midwives group as with my son, and my first visit is in late January.

Hi! I'm not sure if it will be the end of August or the beginning of September but here I am! My name is Hannah, I've been with my husband for five years and we have one wonderful, perfect little daughter who is 17 mo. I can't imagine how I'm going to chase after her pregnant but we'll see how this goes! We own a store and my husband is training to become a fireman so we are ALWAYS busy and always working. DD comes to the store with me everyday and is turning into a serious little salesgirl.
Anyway, we are planning our second homebirth. Hoping it is as uneventful as the last one. So far I'm just waiting for all that extra pregnant body heat to kick in! I've been freezing...: And we live in Tucson, AZ.
Good luck everyone!

Divorced mama to baby girl (7/5/06) and baby boy (8/5/08) Into anything fun and creative!

Okay, I'm finally adding my info here!

This is babe #2 for us! My DH and I have been married for 2.5 years. We have one son who is just about 18 months. We're due 8/4/08. I keep having baby girl dreams, but when I'm awake, I'm pretty sure the baby is a boy. We'll see!

We're thrilled to being a having a midwife attended birth this time! We had our first appointment about a week ago, and so far so good.

I am experiencing a fair bit of morning sickness, which I didn't have at all the first time around. Yuck!

Mama to my beautiful boys born 6/29/06, 7/29/08, & 11/09/10.

Hi, I'm Amy, and this will be baby #3 for me! EDD is August 31 - my first two were born at 34 and 37 weeks, so I expect this one anytime in August! DH and I have been married since 10/29/99 and have one girl - Hannah 10/26/01 - and one boy - Aidan 2/05/03. Because we already have one of each, we will not be finding out the gender of this baby until it's born - a nice surprise the third time around! Good luck to everyone, and a Happy and Healthy Nine Months to us all!!!

hiya.

i'm pretty sure that this is the right DDC, as the calculators have given me dates from Aug 15 to Sept 9. LOL anyway, as of today, my period is 12 days late, and since i don't want to test, i assume that i'm pregnant about 4-5 weeks. maybe 6. to be honest, i'm terrible at counting anyway, even though i keep charts. i'm just overwhelmed by it.

my husband and i have been together for 10 years, married for 5 or so, and this is our first child. we're very excited about it.

i work as a yoga teacher, my husband is a writer/editor. we both practice buddhism. when the child comes, i plan to continue working, but fewer hours overall.

that's where i am now.

Congratulations to all!! We found out yesterday (Merry Christmas to us!) that we're expecting #3!! BIG SURPRISE!! We had planned to only have 2, but apparently other forces were at work. I highly doubt I will get to 40 weeks (39 weeks #1 and 34 weeks with #2) Let's hope that #3 doesn't make as early an entrance as #2 though!! I would like this one to have his or her own birthday, however, so 8/30 would be fine.

Hi! I've been lurking for a while, and really like a lot of what I've read, so I decided to join. I'm from SLo MO, but I'm a country girl at heart, and once the new addition is in school we plan on moving out to a small town outside Columbia, MO (parents are going to care for it until then, and can't pass that up).

I'm 30, DH is 31, and this will be our first, due 8-8-08. My younger sister is pregnant too, three weeks behind me, so I'm looking forward to celebrating (or enduring???) this journey with her. DH and I are ethical omnivores, striving to eat locally produced food as often as possible. We brew our own beer, garden, compost, and plan on making our own baby food, cloth diapering, and obtaining as many baby items as possible second-hand.

Congrats to everyone!

I'm Shy (24) partner to Brooks (27). We are currently expecting out first child 8/24/08. I think we were both initially shocked as this was a huge surprise but I think its starting to wear off. I'm a NICU/Nursery nurse and currently work nights 3 times a week. Brooks does IT work for TimeWarner. We're both super excited.

I'm Meagan. My husband Alonso and I are from San Diego, but have been living in Queens, NY for about 2.5 years. We're both 27 yo and full time students. I study public interest law. I'll be done with school by my due date, August 20. But I'll be 8 mos when I take the bar, which is a little scary. This is our first, so we're very excited.
