* What number child is this for you: #4! This is my 5th pregnancy though.
* Family: DP Timothy... Eldest son, Elwynn - 7... Middle Daughter, Ngaio (ny-oh) 4 & Youngest Daughter, Rue-Bee - 2
Furbabies: 3 Year old Pup Finnegan, Hoping to get chickens this summer & maybe a kitten to keep the mice at bay.
* Baby's Sex: My guess is Boy! I have been right 3/3 times so far! I get girl feelings as well, which confuses me.. I think twins sometimes.. we shall see.
* Names you like: His name is Banyan Nova, I already know that from a dream I had over a year before we concieved him we have some other middle names on the table.. I have a few I really love.. .. my other kids have long names and he will too. For a girl im thinking Poppy!
* Birth Plans/Preferences: Home-birth (#4) Water-birth (#3) with midwife, Thinking of Lotus birth after my midwife suggested it to me..I also like eating a small piece of the placenta.. my midwife suggested just asking baby first..then doing the lotus birth as well..
* Anything else you'd like to share: Im just loving being pregnant! I love this little baby growing so fast in my belly.. I love feeling him/her kick..I love getting our new house all ready for the start of a new kind of family.Im not in a huge rush though..time feels like its flying by and I have a lot to do before he arrives...
also Thinking there is a slight possibility of twins..

* EDD: By conventional figurings I'm due Nov. 7. I don't tend to follow conventional anything, lol, so anytime really in November and possibly December works for me.
* Name: My friends call me Nic!
* Age: 30, will be 31 when this babe arrives.
* Location: Northern Illinois
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Umm..not long apparently. 6 weeks after I miscarried a surprise pregnancy. We weren't really trying though.
* What number child is this for you: If all goes well, this will be baby #5!
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Hubby, 3 boys K, J, and A (15, 11, and 8) and Little girl S (2, soon to be 3) and our furbaby Zoey dog!
* Baby's Sex (hopes or guesses): Oh I don't know.. I go back and forth. Odds are another boy.
* Names you like (& are willing to share): I'm not willing to share just yet... I am still so undecided about names.
* Birth Plans/Preferences: Well... I'm 23 weeks as I type, I haven't seen anybody yet and have been doing my own prenatal care. In the beginning I was very open to having a midwife attended homebirth but circumstances in my state make it near to impossible to find anybody close to me... that and finances have kind of pushed my hand to UC. I'm really at peace with this decision, more so than I have ever felt with any of my previous hospital births.
* Anything else you'd like to share: I have never gone into labor on my own... all of my previous babies were induced (aside from my miscarriage which was a UP/UC). I'm pouring all my faith into my body that it will do what it needs to when the time is right.

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

EDD: Nov 16, but most likely late Nov/early December.
* Name: Bobbi
* Age: just turned 35 last week!
* Location: Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 3 months. We had a m/c in November, and conceived this baby in Feb.
* What number child is this for you: 4
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Dh is John, dd1 (6) Bree Anne, ds (4) Dominic, dd2 (2.5) Madeleine. No furbabies, but 2 goldfish.
* Baby's Sex (hopes or guesses): No idea. I get boy and girl feelings, but there's definitely only one in there!
* Names you like (& are willing to share): Haven't put a lot of thought into it yet. I like Audrey for a girl and Simon for a boy, but dh has already shot down both those names. We'll come to a decision at some point!
* Birth Plans/Preferences: hospital birth with midwife is Plan A, homebirth is Plan B. I was induced for all 3 of my kids, and I'm hoping not to be induced this time. If that means we don't make it to the hospital, so be it.
* Anything else you'd like to share: 22 weeks along and feeling really good!

EDD: 11/8/10
Name: Tati
Age: 24
Location: California
How long it took to you to get your BFP: I'm fertile myrtle. 1st try every time.
What number child is this for you: I've been pregnant 4x but two ended in early miscarriage. So this is baby #2.
Family : Not married but in a very committed relationship with my daughters father. I have a little girl (Lucy Royal) who will be 2 in 2 days!!! OMG!
Baby's Sex (hopes or guesses): 100% BOY!
Names you like (& are willing to share): His name will be Jude William.
Birth Plans/Preferences: I was planning to UC. Now I'm unsure and extremely frustrated by my financial limitations. I've tried talking to midwives and they are of no help, hospital says they are sticking to their policies, and although I love the idea of UCing and believe I can do it alone I would find more peace and reassurance with a half UC... Uh... Unassisted but not unattended... For instance my ideal birth would be to UC at home with a midwife staying at my Nana's house which is just a few houses down from me (we live in a mobile home park so I'd blink and she would be there). Sadly that isn't an option and I've been told trying to UC at least to some degree like refusing fetal monitoring isn't even an option if I go to the hospital. So I'm just stuck on the verge of tears almost daily because I have no clue what to do. The idea of going to the hospital makes me sick to my stomach... the idea of being 20 minutes away from the hospital and something going wrong makes me sick to my stomach. AHHHHH! Well that was long...
Anything else you'd like to share: This pregnancy is turning me into emotional goo... But in the end... I'm still happy to be having my little boy... Even if I am ready to sell my two year old on ebay! hahaha

I do have you down, right? You're under "JSMa", not Phoenix~Mama...which is confusing the heck out of me because I thought we had a JSMa under that username... JSMa is what was listed when I took over the thread.

I think she changed her username... (I did this in the very early days of this pregnancy after I found a board was snarking on my miscarriage), she's going through a divorce and I bet she changed it for that reason. Of course, I'm purely speculating so feel free to correct me, Phoenix~Mama!!

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

Hello! I am brand new to this forum, hope it's ok for me to post.
EDD - November 28th
Name - batlvr
Age - 36
Location - MD
How long? Well, we were "not preventing" for about 18 months before the BFP!
This is my second child, I have a 15 y o DS. I am married to an awesome biker dude.
It's a GIRL! We like the name Sadie Carroll (her middle name will be in honor of my hubby's late grandfather).
Originally planned a VBAC but it is looking more and more like a repeat c-section.
Thanks!

Welcome batlvr

I to am dealing with the realization that my upcoming birth probably is not going to go exactly the way I had wanted and dreamed it would. So jump on in, you will find us all very supportive and many of us very empathetic with your situation.

Loved wife to JT and grateful mother to M (dd age 13) L (dd age 10) T (ds age 6) A (ds age 4) E (dd age 2) and C & S (twin boys born 10/13/10)
and yes, I blog. thumb.gif

I've been very lazy about getting around to reposting my info to the new thread...sorry!

* EDD: According to OV date, Nov. 4, but Nov. 6 according to LMP...I'm trying to just tell most people the first week in Nov.
* Name: Lemon is fine
* Age: 29 (How did that happen so fast?)
* Location: Southern Illinois
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: only 1 cycle!
* What number child is this for you: Number 1
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Wonderful DH of 6 years, 3 loving but very naughty cats (2 yrs old) and one sweet rescue collie (7 yrs old)
* Baby's Sex (hopes or guesses): BOY!
* Names you like (& are willing to share): I've got a couple favorites, but I'm not telling.
* Birth Plans/Preferences: Hoping for a natural hospital birth attended by a CNM
* Anything else you'd like to share: I'm very new to the whole pregnancy and baby thing, but so far it has been great. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by and how soon this baby will be in my arms!
