EDD: December 17th
Family (partner, other children, etc): DH Tyler, 17 month old DD Davan, and two black kitties.
Gender preferences/inklings: I'm sure there's a boy in there, I can't get it out of my head. It doesn't make a difference to me either way though.
Birth plans/preferences: On hold - Hopefully a hospital birth with a midwife, but were finding out if there's twins in there on Tuesday, and if that's the case, I'll be looking at an OB (no real choice here)

Fiona, I'm in Kitchener too! Hi!
Location: Brookyn, NY
EDD: December 9
Family: Husband, DD Zoe, 19 months, 2 guinea pigs
Gender preference: girl, so I can re-use all the clothes I saved
Names I like: really like Penelope, but the in-laws have a cat named Penny so that might be weird. Also Reed for a boy.
Birth plan: fingers crossed for a V-BAC. Zoe was born 10 weeks early by emergency C-section (due to me getting severe pre-eclampsia), so I am really, really hoping this baby stays healthy and I can deliver it naturally. But even another C-section is OK as long as I can take my baby home right away.
