What are your hobbies?

Would you describe yourself as a planner or a spontaneous person?

My EDD is March 19th, adjusted from March 11th... I'm kinda hoping for March 11th...

This is my fourth. I have 17 and 16 year old daughters from a previous marriage and my husband and I have a 21 month old son together.

We found out the gender at the 18 week u/s and we're having another boy

I had constant morning sickness the first trimester and then it got worse for the second trimester. It went away for the most part at week 32 but I still have times when all I want to do is run for the bathroom. Otherwise, the pregnancy has been fine, thank God.

I am originally from New York City and my daughters and I (I was married to their dad at the time) moved to Israel almost 12 years ago.

My husband and I are among the founding members of the Society for Creative Anachronism here in Israel. I love to read and crochet. We're also into games like Settlers of Cattan and Fluxx...

For the most part, I need planning... not knowing how I'm getting somewhere or where exactly I need to be makes me nuts. OTOH, I don't start my week with the calendar and plan out every day... ok, not EVERY week.

What is this??


Are your kids looking forward to having a baby brother?

What advice would you give to first time moms?

The SCA (sca.org) is medieval reenactment, kind of like the Civil War folks...

My girls are totally looking forward to this, I think they're happy that Nati will have a sibling much closer in age for him to play (and fight) with.

My advice for first time moms is to find a handful of folks who share the same life philosophy and a doctor they trust to ask advice from. Don't buy a shelf-full of 'how to' books, trust your instincts... and it's ok to tell your mother (and MIL) you don't agree with them.

What do you miss most from your pre-mommy days? (I know first reaction is always to say "nothing! I love being a mom!" But we all daydream about something...)
