EDD: July 26, 2010
Name: Janet
Age: 29
Location: St. George, Utah, about 1 1/2 hrs north east of Las Vegas
Family (partner, other children, etc): DH Greg and six kiddos: Hannah, Hailey {7}, C.J. {6}, Anthony, Jamie {4}, and Chuck {13 months}
Gender preferences/inklings: I'm hoping this is a girl because I know our family is supposed to have another one.
Names you like: Claire. Just Claire.
Birth Plans/Preferences: Homebirth, third attempt. I have planned two other homebirths and transferred to the hospital twice. I'm planning on actually birthing at home this time. I'm sure I'll labor a lot in the water like I did last time.
Anything else you'd like to share: I can't believe I'm pregnant again. We didn't exactly prevent but weren't planning on doing it this soon either. I'm excited but nervous too since I know exactly what I'm getting myself into. And I'm starting heavier than I wanted to this time so I'm already watching my diet.

EDD: Mid August but may family runs late so proabably the third or fourth week
Name: Caitlin
Age: 27
Location: Shanghai, China but I'm originally from Iowa
Family (partner, other children, etc): I've been married for almost five years and have a daughter who will be two in February.
Gender preferences/inklings: I hope it's a girl so DD can do "sister" things
Names you like: Keeping this a secret
Birth Plans/Preferences:This is kind of complicated but I'll be home in the states for summer leave and I would really, really, really, like to have a birth at The Farm in Summertown, TN. I don't know much about it except what I know from "Spiritual Midwifery" and The Farms web page but I think it's my best chance of a VBAC/Natural birth and the only place I can think of where I will feel comfortable. My first birth was quite hard. I was in labor for 86 hours and was given a Cesarean at a local Chinese hospital with no/not enough pain meds - I could feel everything. I went into my first birth fearless and ready for a UC but now I am a little bit afraid and I feel like I need as much support and as comfortable/knowledgeable setting as I can get
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm a doula, CBE, CLEC, and I teach EC and Hypnobirthing. After my first birth I realized that birth/breastfeeding resources are severely lacking in China and I wanted to change that.

Gender preferences/inklings: I wanted a boy last time and DH wanted a girl. This time I don't really mind, though a girl would be handier as we already have all the clothes!
Names you like: Haven't really thought about it yet.
Birth Plans/Preferences: Homebirth hopefully. Had a very traumatic hospital transfer last time and absolutely don't want to go through that again.
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm really excited to be able to join a DDC! I joined MDC after DD was born so never got to be part of a DDC last time round - Oh and I'm a total dork, as you can tell!

My first birth was quite hard. I was in labor for 86 hours and was given a Cesarean at a local Chinese hospital with no/not enough pain meds - I could feel everything. I went into my first birth fearless and ready for a UC but now I am a little bit afraid and I feel like I need as much support and as comfortable/knowledgeable setting as I can get [/COLOR]
Oooh, The Farm is not far from where I live. It's kind of a fantasy of mine to birth there, too, but I had a great hospital birth last time with a CNM who was born and raised there, so next best thing!

I hope you get your perfect birth experience this time !!

Gender preferences/inklings: not yet

Anything else you'd like to share: I miscarried in September and I was shocked by my grief. I hope this one is meant to be. My daughter was also conceived 3 years ago to the day of this one and after my husband and I made love this conception time we ran outside and there was a double rainbow over our home. That was cool.

Wow, Beth. I have a similar story... this babe was conceived 3 years to the day of my last and about a month or so before I conceived (this was a time of great stress and craziness in my life), I was driving to my grandparent's really upset and on the way there this was this beautiful clear rainbow. I knew then that the events going on in my life were temporary. We would find a solution and all would be ok. It was just getting to that point.

Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.
