Wow, Eunytuny, you are prompt!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
Ok, here goes!<br><br>
What was your birth experience like?<br>
My birth experience was great. It was a natural, hospital birth (I know, sounds like an oxymoron). Really, the Family Place at my hospital was great. I used self-hynosis to get through contractions (kind of hypno-birthing...practiced with a friend who is a therapist and specializes in self-hynosis for sports training, labor, etc.), it was incredible, I highly recommend it. *Let me just say, there were moments that the pain was very intense and I came close to losing control. I told my DH I couldn't do it several times. both times he said "but you ARE doing it". * Labor itself was fast (4 hours) and I don't recall "pushing" at all...My body just kind of "took over". I was followed by a very cool OB who's quote was "I will be there to make sure your birth is YOUR birth", when I explained my birthplan. He was actually there, in my room, for over half of my labor-time...granted I was in labor for only 4 hours! My husband caught our son, put him on my chest, and said "we're a family". We called my family about an hour later and they came to meet Baby Boy. I realized about two hours later that I was starving and the cafeteria was closed. The only thing I wanted was hot-greasy pizza. My brother made my dream come true!<br><br>
You are learning to be a midwife? How is that going?<br>
Hmm...not me, maybe someone else with a similar name?<br><br>
How are you feeling about breastfeeding in public?<br>
I'm fine with it. DS is a super-active/nosey nurser, so I prefer to sit in a less-populated area, but, if he wants to nurse at the table in a restaurant, so be it!<br><br>
What is your relationship with your parents like?<br>
It's great. My mom was an LLL leader when I was growing up so we're pretty much on the same page when it comes to feeding stuff. I co-slept until I was three and asked for my own bed! My dad has become the best Pepere a baby could want (kind of a surprise how mushy my dad can be!). DS is actually at their house now...He spends a couple of hours a week with them playing, swinging, walking, and dancing to give DH and I some time to clean the house, do errands, etc. He gets SOOO excited when we drive up their driveway! It's great for all of us!<br><br>
What is your favorite color?<br>
I have always been a huge orange fan...even when it wasn't cool<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Seriously... everything is orange now. When I was 5 do you think my mom could find an orange winter coat (my only request for my 5th birthday)?<br><br>
How green are you?<br>
I'm mint-ish...heading toward a more kelly-green life. We CD 75% of the time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: , I know we need to make the leap to 100%, it's our goal for the month. We recycle everything. I bring my own containers to the co-op to buy bulk oatmeal,spices etc..and canvas bags to the grocery store. We buy local organic produce as much as possible. We have switched most of our light bulbs to compact fluorescents. I don't use chemical cleaners. BUT I do drive a small SUV...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: ....My husband and I carpool with eachother 3 out of 5 days a week.

Favorite food?<br>
Oh boy...so many.... I love carbs. Warm bread with honey, Pizza, Tomato-fresh mozzarella-basil salad, and ice cream.<br><br>
Drink?<br>
Coffee and Tea...hot in the winter, iced in the summer.<br><br>
How many places have you lived?<br>
Two, if you count my four years in college. Boring, I know...<br><br>
Your favorite?<br>
Where I am now in New England. I love four-seasons.<br><br>
Do you like to travel?<br>
Yes, domestically. I want to see the entire United States of America. I am not very confident in my abilities to travel somewhere where I don't know the language. I'd love to travel the world someday... Anyone want to be my chaperone?<br><br>
Best part about being a parent?<br>
Waking up in the morning and gettng the drowsy-milky smiles from DS. The hugs and open-mouth wet kisses are fun. The tax credit/refund wasn't bad either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: I swear, I'm kidding...don't shoot!

Hi Basmom!<br><br>
Are you Portuguese?<br>
No...I have a lot of french-canadian blood running through my veins!<br><br>
What are your most/least favorite things about New England?<br>
LOVE: surprise warm-weather days in early spring...or January (I see you're from New England, do you remember the warm January day this year?), being able to drive 1 hour from my house and be by the ocean/mountains/Boston/three other states, and, even though they often break my heart...the Red Sox!<br>
Don't LOVE so much: Crazy snow storms in April when we haven't had any all winter, although it is changing a bit...the lack of diversity. There are a lot of old white men where I live and they are running the state government (except for the governor!...He's on my LOVE list!)<br><br>
What magazines do you subscribe to?<br>
I don't subscribe to any right now...not much time to read. Somehow I got on the list for the free American Baby subscription. When I called to stop getting it, the customer service rep. said, "It's free, you should just finish the subscription". I used to subscribe to Rolling Stone and, this is so embarrassing, Us weekly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
What political/social issues are you passionate about?<br>
Breastfeeding in public. A woman's right to Choose. Any issue that protects the safety/rights of children.<br><br>
Do you lurk on any MDC forums?<br>
I check out the birth stories quite a bit. (I should post my story). I love to read the UC stories..incredibly strong women!

Haha! I don't know how to put an accent over the second "e"...that would have been the correct spelling!
