* Name: Neuromancer<br>
* Age: 33<br>
* Location: Brooklyn, NY<br>
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 1st cycle trying, so 28-29 days?<br>

* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH of 9 years (we've known each other 18 and been together 16) and a 10-year-old rascal of a cat (I consider him a little brother, not a child).<br>
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): Dunno! I would like a girl.<br>

* Birth plans/preferences: Home birth in tiny Brooklyn apartment.<br>
* Blog, website or the like: I blog about snacks, so that's not very related. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br>
* Anything else you'd like to share: I'm "cautiously excited" about this pregnancy. I can't quite believe it will stick.

Please add me to the list! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
EDD: March 21 but that could change after my doctor appointment tomorrow.<br><br>
Name: Rabbit works since that's my screen name<br><br>
Age: 34 (35 in a month)<br><br>
Location: Ottawa, ON<br><br>
How long it took to you to get your BFP: Well, this was sort of an oopsie but as we tried for over a year and half and then gave up, we're both very happy about it.<br><br>
What number child is this for you: 2<br><br>
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH of 6 years, DD that's 4 1/2<br><br>
Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): We have one girl so would be happy with a boy, but really we don't care.<br><br>
Names you like (& are willing to share): I tossed out Arya last night for a girl. No boy's names yet.<br><br>
Birth plans/preferences: The same hospital I gave birth in last time, I had a wonderful experience there. They're very earthy and the mother is in full control over what she wants for everything.<br><br>
Anything else you'd like to share: I've had several miscarriages over the past year and a half of trying, so I really, really hope this one sticks. For some reason I feel better about this one, maybe because I actually feel pregnant this time around such as with my first. Boobs are sore, exhausted now and then, plus some very slight morning sickness. All the miscarriages I had I never felt pregnant but I'm not sure that has anything to do with anything.

So happy to be here!<br>
* EDD: middle/end of March<br>
* Name: Leah<br>
* Age: 38<br>
* Location: MN<br>
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 8 cycles<br>
* What number child is this for you: 3<br>
* Family: Partner of 10 years, 19 yr old daughter, 2.5 yr old son, 4 dogs and 3 cats<br>
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): Well, my son was the 1st boy born in my family in three generations. So who knows!<br>
* Names you like (& are willing to share): Our DS says, "If the baby is a boy, his name is going to be semi-truck!"<br>
* Birth plans/preferences: Last birth was a hospital VBAC attended by my partner (of course), and our donor and his partner who is a retired midwife. We'd like to do the same this time, but our (one and only) hospital has a new "rule" about there being only one person other than a partner and/or a doula in the birthing room. We'll have to do some negotiating.
