That way they are closer in age so maybe they will get along better than me and my sisters. We were farther apart by like 5 or 6 years difference. My oldest was born in mid june my youngest was born mid may they were both 5 and half weeks early ( I can't carry fullterm) And if it stays the same this baby boy will be born right in the mid of them both. lol. Every two weeks Ill have a birthday to do. lol.
This baby boy is going to be a Junior after his daddy. I cant wait.
I feel the same way! My first two are a year apart and I am pregnant again. So, they'll all be close together unlike my sister and I who are 10 years apart. I want my children to be close and have someone to play with.

blake201 I just joined! Here's my info...

EDD: June 18
Name: Blake (not my first name, but my first name is really distinctive and I'd rather random people not find my posts via internet search)
Age: 29
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): I have a wonderful loving husband who is 37 years old, and two adorable, if high-maintenance, cats. This baby will be our first.
Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): She's a baby woman!
Names you like: Zora
Birth Plans/Preferences: Unless we get risked out for some reason, we're going to be delivering with no drugs under the care of a midwife at an in-hospital birthing center. We originally wanted to have a doula, but the birthing center only allows two support people, so I think it will be just my husband and mother.
Anything else you'd like to share: I love to sew, knit, and make art of all kinds. I'm also a graphic designer.

lichenNH EDD: June 20th
Name: Lichen
Age: 33
Location: Manchester, NH
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Sweetheart and 3 kittehs
Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): Girl
Names you like: Family names/ traditional - probably 'cause mine is so out there.
Birth Plans/Preferences: No idea
Anything else you'd like to share:
I joined the forum because for the last few days I've been having horrible abdominal pains. My instincts are telling me it's just muscles adjusting as the baby grows, but I'm a bit scared.

I don't know anything about pregnancy or babies - none of my close friends are and those I'm close to haven't been for decades. So I have nobody to ask questions of or talk to. I was hoping I might get some help here.

TakeItEasyMama EDD: June 11
Name: Jessica
Age: 34
Location: LaGrange, GA
Family: Happy and in love with DH. Mom of DS (7) and DD (4). Just moved and had to swap horses for bikes. I was a SAHM for 6 years and now work full time at a homeless shelter for women and children.
Babys Gender: One doc said it was a boy, another said, "that could be the cord."
Names: Joseph Jeremiah Ray....something from Bible and Family
Birth Plans: Well, my first two failures to deliver require a scheduled c-section thsi time.
Mothering Style. I wear my babies in a sling until they want down, we share a family bed, use cloth diapers and nurse on demand, too.

WIth the first two babies I tried Bradley and then a VBAC. Turns out delivering a baby is just the beginning of many challenges..so I'm not so hung up on it this time. With the first two I was in a due date club and we shared beads to make a nursing necklace. I am so ready to shop for beads.......

tngirl11 Hi ladies! I've just recently found this forum and am excited to see how busy it is!
My name is Gayle. I'm 33, and I'm due June 13th with #4.
I have one DH (Gabe), 6-year-old twins (Reagan and Ryan), and a 4-year-old (Cade). We had a loss back in March at around 9 weeks, so I'm very relieved to be well into the 2nd trimester now.
I am planning a nice, relaxed, unmedicated birth at the same birthing center where I delivered last time. I would love a home birth, but DH is way too freaked out to agree. So the birthing center is a great compromise. I'm very interested in a water birth and would be able to have one as there will be a tub, but last time I wasn't really feeling it and ended up on hands and knees out of the water instead. We'll see what happens this time!
