(1.) Due Date (Actual date, "beginning," "middle," or "end" of June if you prefer): July 21, 2015
(2.) What number child this is for you, and if it is a rainbow baby: Baby number 5

Name: Erin
Age: 37 (will be 38 when babe is due)
Location: Philly 'burbs
How long it took you to get your BFP/if this is a surprise baby: Spontaneously threw caution to the wind this cycle and here we are.
Family (spouse, other children, pets, etc.): DH + 14 year old daughter, 11 year old daughter, 8 year old son, 4 year old son.
Baby's gender (hopes/guesses): My 4 year old has mentioned having 3 sisters a couple of times in the last two weeks...intuition? I've been in boy-mode for the last 8+ years, but it doesn't matter what the sex is.
Birth plans/preferences: Homebirth
Blog/website/etc:
Anything else you would like to share: My oldest will be 15 in February and I'm wondering what it'll be like to have children 15 years apart. She was 10 when the last baby was born. We've REALLY outgrown this house and not sure how we're going to make things work with another babe. I need to focus on some serious manifestations.

Reposting (not verbatim) from the other thread:

Due July 18, hoping this will be our rainbow baby after 3 early losses. (Never had a pregnancy last more than 7 weeks.) I have low progesterone and we got on it right away this time so I'm hopeful.

Age: 35
Location: SE Texas
How long it took you to get your BFP/if this is a surprise baby: 5+ years...a surprise at this point as we gave up about 6 months ago!
Family (spouse, other children, pets, etc.): DH and Leo the cat
Baby's gender (hopes/guesses): We're not planning to find out until the birth.
Birth plans/preferences: Freestanding Birth Center with a midwife, she also does homebirths and we might switch if we move into a house in time. The birth center is very "homebirth away from home" so it will be great but I also like the idea of not having a 30 min. drive in labor.

**Ducks head in shame** Sorry, I was supposed to be doing this on the other thread I created, but yours looks better than mine did.

(1.) Due Date (Actual date, "beginning," "middle," or "end" of July if you prefer)
July 6 (But I am certain this baby will come at 41 weeks or after, like my others.)
(2.) What number child this is for you, and if it is a rainbow baby
This is baby number 5, child number 6 (we're raising a nephew), and this is a rainbow baby.

And please include any of this other info that you'd like to:
Name: Amy
Age: 32
Location: Northern Virginia
How long it took you to get your BFP/if this is a surprise baby: I got a definitive positive at 9 dpo.
Family (spouse, other children, pets, etc.): married to my hubby for 12 years; Dustin (nephew we are raising) is 13, Kaleb is 10, Kylah is 8, Kendall is 6, and KaraLee is almost 2. Currently, a cousin and her three kids (aged 8, 6, and 2) and their dog (black lab) are living with us. We have two cats, 4 goats, and currently 20 chickens (some of them will be butchered soon and hopefully some others will be sold).
Baby's gender (hopes/guesses): I'm thinking boy, but I could be wrong. I'm not planning to find out early.
Birth plans/preferences: Definite homebirth. I was leaning towards unassisted, but my hubby isn't comfortable with it, so we'll likely end up using the same midwife I used last time.

Anything else you would like to share: I just started working this past week, and had back spasms during the same time frame. I'm currently working PT during the day training, but will move to working two nights a week and being on call the other three nights. And I'll still be homeschooling. So I will likely be sporadic in my visits here...I'm trying to figure out how to make everything fit into my schedule efficiently.

I am due JUNE 29 but keep finding myself over here so I am introducing myself. Plus, there is a good chance I'll have a July baby. You can add me in "early July" if we fudge the date a little.
I'm 28, live in Colorado with my husband (30) and son (4). We had several losses in the last few years but all is great this time - two scans at 6 and 8 weeks showed a little healthy one that fully intends to be born in June (Or July!)

I love the name Greta. :)

I had my first three babies in my twenties, too. I had just turned 23 when my first was born and 29 when my third was born. I was 33 when I had my fourth and was prepared for it to be more difficult, but it wasn't; if anything, I felt wiser and felt like I knew to cherish every moment and to lay low as much as possible. It turned out to be the best postpartum time of all and the after-birth bliss lasted for over a year.

I'm already on the list but haven't given any other info.

Name: Amee

age: 33, 34 in March

Location: TX

How long it took you to get your BFP/if this is a surprise baby: we decided to try for just one month, to get a July baby. And we really only got in one BD, dh is a disabled vet, so sometimes it is hard, pain wise, for him.

Family (spouse, other children, pets, etc.): dh is James, our kids are Amethyst, 12, Bear, 8, Abbott, almost 4, and Atlas will be 2 in March. We also have a 250 lb Great Dane, Samson.

Baby's gender (hopes/guesses): I'd love another girl, dh thinks boy, and he been right every time, lol.

Birth plans/preferences: not sure yet, but I've had four amazing, natural (epidural with #1 ) hospital births. #2 was born 15 minutes after arrival, #3 nine minutes after arrival, #4 , dr broke my water and hoped to make it in time, still missed it. James helped deliver all three. One born in the caul, ouch. One shoulder dystopia, ouch. All amazing.
