Hello mamas, I have been quietly lurking here for quite a while but haven't yet joined in (had some technical issues that took forever to work out). Hope there's room here for one more! I am supposedly due Nov.30 with baby #3, but I have a feeling we might wait until early December. (my birthday, and my two other dc's are on a first of the month. . . so I'm kind of wondering if this one will want to follow suit) I'll probably introduce myself over on the November board, too, just in case, but I do think December is where I (we) belong. I have a daughter who is 11, a son who is 7, and a partner who I have been in love with since we were teenagers (we're in our mid-30's now). This baby came as a complete surprise, and it took a little while to wrap our heads around the idea of "starting over" with another babe, but now we're getting really excited. So are the kids -my dd is already planning knitting projects for the little one! My pregnancy has been pretty easy so far, a bit queasy for the first few months, and still pretty tired some days, but overall I'm feeling great. Starting to feel some movement and my belly's beginning to pop. We have a fantastic midwife who we home-waterbirthed our ds with, and hope to do the same with this one. I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you!
