flowers Hey Nicole, Glad to hear you are doing so well. The only thing is this thread was for LAsT September!!! Yep, we have all had our babies my ds is a whopping 6 mos old and coming back to this thread really brought up a lot of memories. There must be a Sept 2005 thread somewhere. Good luck!

counterGOPI hi there. my name is Nicole.
I am married to my eternal (life after life)soul mate and very blessed.
this is our 1st child. we have an ongoing bet b/c my husband thinks its a girl after a dream he had and ever since day one i have been thinking its a boy...we'll see who wins
I am due Sept 24th which just happens to be our wedding anniversary,too! ha,ha. Pretty funny huh? our baby is 100% vegan since conception and will (hopefully, if all goes well) be a drug free baby b/c i plan on NO drugs whatsoever. i still dont know where ill be having the baby b/c i am currently living in korea.i fly back to the states in june so then i can start figuring out what our insurance will cover,etc. we plan on using cloth diapers,breast feeding,making our own baby food, and homeschooling. thats as far as our plans have gone so far

sistermama Hi due date sister! I hope things get going soon for you!

StacyL Boy, do I feel stupid. I've been posting in the due date thread for awhile now, but somehow I missed this one and never introduced myself - how rude!

Anyway, I'm Stacy and I'm 34 and me and my navy officer dh are expecting our first, a boy. We are going to have a UC, and he's as excited about it as I am. We will not vax, and I plan on eco-bf'ing, sling-wearing, co-sleeping, cd'ing, and I even convinced my dh to leave our little boy intact! Yea, hubby!

I am due today, according to my stupid OB who moved up my due date one week from it's original 9-22 after viewing my only u/s at 24 weeks. I really wished I hadn't heard that, since it has just contributed to my antsiness. I'm having lots of on again/off again go nowhere contractions, and lost part of my plug almost two weeks ago.

interbang I'm Heather, due 9/20/04, home birth here in Santa Monica, CA.

Yesterday, a baby store exploded in my house.

I'm really enjoying these forums, looking forward to posting again soon.

msrog Welcome, Jodi, glad you finally came out of hiding, haha. Come over to the weekly chat thread and join the melee...
08-09-2004 09:59 AM
plantmommy Welcome, Jodi!

Why don't you pop in on the chat thread and the homebirth thread?
08-09-2004 09:43 AM
seekingtruth Hi there!
I've been lurking for months now and gathering *great* information, but with the due date getting so close, it's time for me to say hello!
I'm Jodi, married to Tom since 8/29/03 and expecting baby #1 on 9/15/04 or so (homebirth with a great dr.!) , and momma to our puppy JJ, a black/brown lab who I love to death! Pregnancy has been great; I've never felt better in my life!
I'm actively researching cloth diapers and have some bids out there on ebay. We finished painting the baby's room this weekend and I've finished teaching college for an indefinite amount of time so I can be with my baby! That means I have about 5.5 weeks to just WAIT! haha Actually I'm keeping busy, and I have a feeling s/he'll come be late anyway (the 23rd is in my mind).
Great to be a part of MDC!

QuietTempest Thanks for the warm welcome!

Caroline248 Sandy..I second will never "catch up"!!! Join us over there...

08-04-2004 06:44 PM
banana girl Hello there!

I'm also due right around the 13th! Come chat with us in our "chatty" thread!
Just jump right to the last page and start chatting with us, trying to play "catch up" is impossible!!! We're way too talkative!
08-04-2004 06:37 PM
QuietTempest Hi! I just stumbled upon this site and I love it! My name is Sandy and my bf, Brian, and I are expecting our first baby on Sept. 13th. I'm currently 34w pregnant and with all the new perks and quirks that go along with pregnancy, it's nice to have somewhere to go and relate stories or get a sense of not being alone.

JenInMpls It took me a while, Allison, to figure out why your children were furry, but after I googled "Basenji" it clicked

Do they really not bark?

welcome jen

ps: I hear you on the other supportive but frustratingly mainstream other boards... I had to give one up completely, it was too much for me.
07-29-2004 09:06 PM
allibabble Well, here I am right about 32 weeks, and feeling like Goldilocks.

One group...another September group...very supportive, but frustratingly mainstream.

An unassisted childbirth group...learning a lot, but it's a tad militant. I love the idea of UC, but not sure if I'm ready, and do NOT respond well to being told "THIS IS HOW YOU MUST BEHAVE."

Last night, I read several of the threads here, and Ahhhhhh...just right. My use of a midwife would be supported, should I stay that route, but if I decide to UC, I'd find encouragement too! Wahoo!

I'm 33, single (attached, but not to the baby's father...VERY long story), and expecting my first sometime late September to early October...the EDD is 9/24, but how likely is it that she'll (yes, it's a girl!) show up then?

I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado with my two furry children (basenjis, Katie-F8 & Clay-M3) and plan a homebirth. Suffice it to say that my pregnancy was quite a surprise, and after a day or two (okay, a day) of soul-searching, I realized there was no way I could look at termination for various reasons. Even though I'm pro-choice, it just didn't gibe personally for *me.*

For any other background, and a few pictures, I have a blog that's primarily about baby stuff:

Glad to meet you guys...even if it IS only for the next 6-10 weeks!

JenInMpls Whoopee! someone from the other side of the pond! Now we can hear about antenatal visits and nappies!!

The September Mamas go intercontinental!

Welcome Kitty!

MamaAcorn Welcome Kitty! We have the same due date!

07-27-2004 04:30 AM
KittyUK Hi!
I realise I'm a bit late to this group I have been lurking on the boards a while and thought it's about time I posted something
I'm Kitty and am 32 weeks pg and due around 21st Sept. I'm planning a homebirth with MW.
My pregnancy has gone pretty well so far and I'm now getting busy preparing for the home stretch.

07-18-2004 03:27 PM
Caroline248 Hi Megan! Welcome to the Sept club! Jump in on the main thread, our weekly one. That gets way more traffic....

MeganW undefinedundefined
Hi I'm Megan I'm 23 and expecting my first little one around the 20th of Sep. I've been with my partner Ryan for about a year now and we are planning a homebirth with a midwife. I wanted a UC he said no way
I work as a realtor and will be returning to work after baby arrives and Ryan will be a SAHD/WAHD. This is # 4 for him so he thinks he's got it all figured out.
07-16-2004 01:04 PM
banana girl Welcome Sheky and nestmama!

Please come chat with us on our weekly threads! We look forward to hearing more from you!

Anna Banana
P.S. Shecky was wondering about all the abbreviations.... You have no idea how long it took me to figure out that a SAHM was a Stay At Home Mom!!! Here's a little "cheat sheet"

DH = Dear Husband ( Damn, Darling or Devoted.... whatever fits the moment!)
DS = Dear Son
DD = Dear Daughter
LOL = Laugh out loud
WAHM = Work At Home Mom
TMI = Too much Info
BTW = By the Way
YKWIM? = You know What I mean?

Good luck!!! And if I got any of these wrong.... clue me in!!!!
07-16-2004 12:54 AM
gaeamama HI! I'm jumping in on this thread in the middle of July!

I'm Robin, 33 yr old SAHM to two wonderful kids. My dh of ten years and I have just started planning on having a homebirth with this one. He's come a long way on this!! He wouldn't even consider it before. Won't go into details here, but I'm getting so excited to start the HB journey.

Looking forward to chatting with you all more.
07-15-2004 12:06 PM
Shecky hi. I'm Shecky and I am new here. I am due on 9/23 with my first, although I have had remarkable success with raising cats, too. I am newly married, and also new to the Atlanta area. We are hoping for a natural childbirth with our mid-wife, and are doing Bradley to help prepare. Some days are good, some are bad, and right now I am on an upswing.

by the way...what is a DH or a DD?
07-14-2004 05:06 PM
chrissy Welcome Pixi! I'm due the 28th with my second child too
07-14-2004 03:34 PM
Pixi Hi, I've been lurking for a while

I am 29, been with my partner for almost 6 years now (wow) We have a 4 1/2 year old son & I am due with our second child on September 28th.

I will be attempting a VBAC and have great support from my midwife at our hospital to do so.
07-13-2004 03:52 PM
Mom2baldie Hey Heather! I am so glad to see another mama from Texas here, especially one that is having a HBAC! I am having my 2nd VBAC, but first homebirth. My DD is 2.5 and she was born 12 minutes after arriving at the hospital after a labor about 10 hours long - all that just to avoid another cesarean. Am very glad Im getting to avoid that whole hospital drama again!!!

Anyways, welcome!!
07-12-2004 03:07 PM
SiValleySteph Hi sistermama! Thanks for the link to the working mommas section. I'll probably just lurk over there for now since I won't have much to add 'til I go back to work sometime in January.

Thanks for the welcome mum2tori! I can see how cloth diapering can be addicting... I think I'm already there and I don't even have a babe yet!!
07-12-2004 01:40 PM
mum2tori Greeting to everyone that's recently joined our chatty September forum. Feel free to just join our weekly threads. We love chatting.

Hi Janerose- welcome to the group. Hope to see more of you around.

MamaAcorn- I have a Jackson! Great name!

SiValleySteph- Hi Stephanie. I'm having a hospital birth too. Both my previous births were hospital. I'm probably one of the more mainstream posters here too. But hey the more the merrier. We use the AP things that work for us and our children. Careful... cloth diapering can be addictive... ask me how I know ... we've been doing it for 3 years! :LOL

Mommymoses- Hi Nancy. Good to see you over here. I recognize you from Amity. Congrats on your marriage and baby #2 on the way.

HeatherB, saw your posts last night on the Diapering forum and was going to let you know we had our little chatty spot over here. Glad to see you found it. I'm just up the road in Meyerland/Bellaire, we enjoy the playarea at First Colony Mall.
