A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. I am currently a student studying Elementary Education. I am married to John. Currently nursing Delilah and would love to tandem nurse. I am planning a home birth this time, I had a birthing center last time. I had a really rough pregnancy last time and this one looks like it is going to be the same. That is all I can think of right now.

A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc.: I am a SAHM. My DH and I just got married last Saturday- February 16- and I got my positive pregnancy test that morning (at 7DPO, no less)! Roman is still nursing frequently and I'm really hoping that he doesn't wean during my pregnancy. I planned a homebirth last time but transferred due to lack of support () and ended up with an epi at the hospital. This time I am adamant about a homebirth and am better preparing myself with lots of support and lots of research.

A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc.
I've been married to my college sweetheart for 3.5 years and I am a SAHM. We are a breastfeeding, CDing, anti-circ family. I absolutely support NCB and wish I could have it for myself. My DS was born at 32w4d by cesarean. He was tranverse, and I ended up with a J-incision on my uterus, so VBAC is not an option for me : Of course, I still hope that labor sneaks up on me and I have the baby in our bathroom or something , but with all my research, I feel that a planned cesarean is the safest option for us : I do feel a little less excited/magical about this PG since I know how it will end, but I will do everything in my power to make my c/s the most gentle that it can be!

Other Children: DS Adrian, 22mths
Due Date: November 4
Where do you live: Los Angeles
A brief intro: I'm an Aussie living in Los Angeles with my DH, a film editor, and from London, UK. I'm a SAHM to our little boy, who will be 23mths next week. We're an extended BFing, CDing, BWing, co-sleeping, traditional foods eating (most of the time), no vax family. Our future sons will be left intact (Adrian wasn't and it one of my biggest regrets). Adrian was born at 36+3 so I am hoping this one makes it to 36 weeks as well and that we can have our first homebirth.

I don't have an inkling for gender yet, but DS already knows there is a baby in mummy's belly and he is consistently telling me it's 2 girls, so who knows.

We just m/c on January 16 at 9w4d so I am nervous that this one (or ones lol) won't stay with us, either. We conceived again straight away which is a blessing because it took us 12 months to conceive Bailee.

Looking forward to getting to know you all

A brief intro: DH and I have been married for almost 4 years, we are an extended bfing, cosleeping, cding, nocirc, novax family. I am a SAHM. I've miscarried 3 times, so I'm not feeling the excitement yet with this pregnancy that I wish I could. We are optimistic though, since I'm on a cocktail of drugs to keep this pregnancy going. I hope to home birth (VBAC), but I'm afraid I'll be too "high risk" for the midwife in my area (with all the meds I'm on, including a blood thinner) My OB is very optimistic about vbac'ing, and supportive of NCB at least, so that's encouraging.

A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. DH and I have been married for 5 years, together for 8. We are both from a small town in Alaska and have moved back here after living in Seattle for 7 years. I tandem nursed my first two children, and my younger DC is still nursing. I am not sure if I am up for tandeming again, though. I actually worry that my older DC would be left out!

My first two children were born by unwanted cesareans, and I am really wrestling with this birth. I want a vba2c, and I know I can birth this baby normally, but where I live it is SOOO difficult to get a vbac. I am considering UC.

Mama to 3 kids. We live in a yurt!

I live in the lower mainland. I love it here because its so beautiful. I hate it here because we have one season.
RAIN.
There are four subseasons of rain.
We have the warm rainy season that the rest of the world calls Spring.
We have the hot rainy season that the rest of the world calls Summer.
We have the cool rainy season that the rest of the world calls Fall.
And we have a cold rainy season that the rest of the world calls Winter.

The island is pretty too!

Intro: This will be my first baby :. I conceived in only the second month after coming off the pill, am delighted it was so quick. I expect will have a hospital/midwife unit birth although hopefully it will be intervention-free although as it's my first I have no idea really. Have been with my husband for almost ten years.

A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. DH and I look totally average but are pretty crunchy on the inside. This will be our 3rd homebirth, my second chance to tandem nurse, more co-sleeping, cloth diapering, etc. DH is an engineer and I'm a SAHM with a law degree, waiting to take the bar exam and practice when the kids are older.

Almost no one knows about this pg yet and I have to say that I'm a little nervous to tell! I think alot of people expected us to only have 2 (including me until the past couple of years) and there will be some surprised faces!

I'm really early (only 10dpo) but really excited to be a part of another DDC.

Here's to a H&H9M for everyone!

Hi everyone!!! Let's see, we do the whole AP business with our son and are seriously considering homeschooling when the time comes. I delivered him in a birth center using hypnobirthing and I will definitely use hypnobirthing again, though I am leaning towards a homebirth this time.

only really learned about "natural parenting" and mdc right after my daughter was born. Exclusively pumped for my daughter for 15 months after refusing to nurse when I went back to work. I am an OT (thus, the screen name). Had a waterbirth with a midwife, was on TLC's "A baby story", am considering a home birth this time, but I would have to switch midwives so Im not so sure. Nice to meet and join all you ladies!

A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. Let's see... dh & I have been married for almost nine years. Dd is homeschooled and ds will likely be, unless we find a way to make the Waldorf school work for our family. Dd self-weaned at 5 years, 2 days, ds is nursing, so I will probably be tandem nursing again. We co-sleep, babywear, all of that. It is probably simpler to tell you I am an inactive API Leader and moderately more active LLL Leader. We are planning a UP/UC for this babe - ds was a mw-attended homebirth - and we're strongly looking at doing Hypnobabies.

I'm so excited to get to post finally. Got a faint BFP this morning, 12 dpo.

A brief intro: I am happily married to my preschool sweetheart and we have two beautiful girls (the oldest from a previous marriage, but you'd never know to see her with him). We also have three pets, Sparkle (3 year old boxer/lab), Dr. Pepper and Coca Cola (5 year old littermates-black siamese mixes)- we are strong supporters of animal rescue and training. All three pets are rescues and the dog is a therapy dog and a canine good citizen. We cosleep, babywear (in fact one thing I'm excited about is getting out my slings and wraps again- Glo's getting too big!), breastfeed (for a while- Gloria's still nursing and I still plan on baby-led weaning even if that means tandom nursing). We didn't cloth diaper in the past, but now that I'm getting into the groove of being a SAHM, I'm seriously considering it, along with IEC with this one. We (kids included) are vegetarian + seafood, natural/whole food/organic when possible. Most people call us "crunchy" lol.

A brief intro: ie, partner, breastfeeding and birth choices, other things going on in life, work, school, etc. Um, I'm not so great at introductions and I'm a little nervous about joining this DDC because I'm pretty sporadic in my posting; I'm hoping this will encourage me to post more regularly and make more connections. Let's see, I've been with my husband since 1991 and we've been married since 2001, I breasted on demand until my daughter was 2.5, we co-sleep now but I'm not sure what that's going to look like once the new one arrives. We're an AP family; we live out in the sticks, and I do my best to grow as much food as possible every summer (though that's been a lot less since I had my first LO ) I'm passionate about living respectfully and compassionately and am super excited about this pregnancy.
