EDD: I'll say July 1st, for now!
Name: Becca
Age: 36
Location: Portland, OR
Family (partner, other children, etc): DH=Eric (40), and our awesome cat, Ira.
Gender preferences/inklings: Secretly hoping for a girl, but I'll be beyond thrilled either way.
Names you like: I am a huge name geek!! I've been keeping lists for years. Seriously, I don't count sheep when trying to sleep; I think about names instead. So, actually picking a name for a real child is going to be TRICKY!!
Birth Plans/Preferences: crunchy-friendly hospital birth w/ OB and doula
Anything else you'd like to share: This is my 3rd pregnancy in a year, after two 1st tri losses, so it's a huge leap of faith to even join a DDC right now. I'm out of my wits w/ fear, but I'm trying to relax and enjoy the moment.

Happily muddled mom to baby Kiki, 11/2010

Hey, no kidding! My dad moved there when I was about 5 and I lived there part time through my teenage years. Back then the area I was in (near where Kamiak was built) was considered Everett. Too funny, considering how young that town is. When did you move away?

Hi everyone!!! I am so so so excited to be here. Congrats to all of us!

EDD: Very late June/very early July
Name: lawschoolmama
Age: 28
Location: Atlanta, GA
Family (partner, other children, etc): Married to DH for just over four years; mommy to DD, who just turned two last week
Gender preferences/inklings: No idea! We'd be so happy with either one. If it's a girl, then I think it will be special for DD to have a sister close in age to her. Plus, she can wear DD's clothes that I've saved. If it's a boy, then we'll have one of each, which would also be fun! Plus, we can buy new clothes then
Names you like: Boy: Andrew Elijah. Girl: No clue yet!
Birth Plans/Preferences: I'd like to try a water birth and hypnobabies this time.
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm still nursing DD, and I'm not sure whether I'm going to try to nurse throughout pregnancy and beyond. I'm thinking of taking it one day at a time, and listening to my DD and my body for my cues. I am thinking I'm going to try to fully night wean soon though--need more rest right now!

Wife to DH 6/05 partners.gif and mommy to DD1, born 10/07 dust.gif and DD2, born June 2010 energy.gif, and one cat.gif! We bftoddler.gif, familybed2.gif, and homeschool.gif

Hello and congratulations to all!

My edd is June 30 through July 3, I thought it would make more sense to start here instead of back in the June club that is already so established. Sooo... here I am!

Name: Jeannine
Age: 37
Location: Illinois
Family: Very newly-wed to DH, T!!! and 5yo DD from previous marriage L
Gender preferences/inklings: none yet
Names we like: lots, too many actually!
Birth plans/preferences: DD's birth was a hospital waterbirth with a great midwife, who had sadly left our area. Hoping the new midwives in the practice are as good. I would love to have another easy, quick waterbirth just like DD's.

Anything else you'd like to share: I am soooo happy about this pregnancy. I have had one 2 previous losses (before my DD) so I am a bit cautious about getting too excited, but hopefully this baby will stick too!!

Happy wife of Treading.gif  mom to L lady.gif and Mjog.gif

I might end up in this thread rather than the June one- this will be my third birth, and the previous two were each two weeks late! My dad says I was born late & I haven't caught up yet- I guess it's true!


EDD: June 26 / 27 (depending whether I put in O date or last MS date)
Name: Elise
Age: 30
Location: Hampton Roads, Virginia
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH, DS 12/24/05 and our bully baby, Moses
Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): Before getting the two pink lines, I was thinking pink thoughts hardcore, but now I resolutely don't care either way.
Names you like: Lydia Anabelle for a girl; Oren or Orien or ???... maybe Robert as a middle name for a boy???
Birth Plans/Preferences: HBA2C (I hope I hope I hope I hope)
Anything else: I really started to feel pregnant yesterday and today- I sat here looking at cloth diapers online & fell asleep at 8:00 (very early for me)!

Wife to since '98; Homeschooling, working on my doctorate & becoming crunchier by the day; Mom to DSs: 06/10,12/05, & 1/99 & 1 on the way (3/15)

You may know (of) my brothers, then. I didn't go to Kamiak because I lived most of the time in Edmonds with my mom, but my (step)brothers lived in Muk full time and went to Kamiak. My older one graduated in, uhh, '97 I think? And my younger one graduated in '02. I also had some friends that went there.

Hello! I am so excited to be here

EDD: July 5th
Name: Keri
Age: 25
Location: Michigan
Family (partner, other children, etc): DH - 26, DD - 20 months, 4 kitties
Gender preferences/inklings: Getting weird feeling on this so far
Names you like: I prefer to pick after baby is born
Birth Plans/Preferences: Hoping for a 2nd homebirth.
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm excited to have this baby in my own home, my daughter was born in my brother and SIL's home, which was absolutely wonderful, but it is an hour and a half away and I was freaked about making it / having to go anywhere quite a lot. And the drive in our little car in labour HURT!

Also, I'm nursing my 20 month DD and I want to continue to through pregnancy. I'm scared that my patience will run short, though, when my milk runs out and my boobs are sore. I hope I can manage!

Hello everyone!! I'm so happy to be here! ((STICKY VIBES)) to all of us!

EDD: I figured June 30th... but then re-figured it at July 4th so that i could get a midwife.. otherwise they were all booked! Anyway, i went 21 days over last time so who knows!
Name: Meghan
Age: 27 (will be 28 when the baby is born)
Location: Chilliwack BC (about 30min north of the border)
Family (partner, other children, etc): Married for 3 years, our daughter Lizzy is 28months old.
Gender preferences/inklings: I bet $ that Lizzy would be a boy. I'm keeping my mouth shut this time.
Names you like: Alexandra... William... Adam.... Katelyn.... we'll probably name 'it' after 'it' is born.
Birth Plans/Preferences: I attempted an unassisted birth last time and ended up in the hospital, i'd liek home birth with a midwife this time, or at the midwife clinic. I'm planning to rent a 'La Bassine' tub too
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm still breastfeeding but it's getting unbearable already... i'd like to nurse through so hopefully it gets easier. Just taking it day by day.
