<b>Location</b>: NY<br><br><b>Due Date</b>: October 1st<br><br><b># of Children:</b> 3yo Jack and 2yo Liam<br><br><b>Interested in knowing the gender prebirth:</b> No...I knew with Jack and didn't with Liam...I like the surprise at the birth<br><br><b>Your dream birthing experience:</b> I did Hypnobabies with my 2nd and it was amazing...I will definitely be doing it again this time but hope I can get DH to agree to a HB...<br><br><b>How did you find out:</b> HPT on Saturday...complete shock<br><br><b>Who did you tell:</b> Hubby and two GFs...but want to shout it from the rooftops!<br><br><b>What excites you most:</b> PG is a high for me...I feel great and like I'm on Cloud 9 the entire time. I love the idea of "growing" a baby and getting that round belly and the anticipation of meeting this little being...I love it all.<br><br><b>Worries:</b> Being able to handle 3...I pray I can develop more patience and not stress out so much. I also hope my boys are welcoming to this baby. Jack is still p*ssed he is not an only child I am still waiting for him to accept that Liam is here to stay.<br><br><b>Things that made you smile:</b> So DH and I asked my boys the other day if they wanted a little brother or sister. Liam responds yes to both as he had no clue what he was agreeing to. So when I asked Jack if he wanted mommy to have another baby he said yes. Then I asked, do you want a little brother or a little sister...he got quiet for about 5 seconds and then said...I want a little nothing!<br><br><b>Tidbits:</b> We TTC for about 2 years with my first. I have tubal issues...one tube is completely blocked and before my 2nd the status of my 2nd tube was unknown. We did IVF to conceive him. When he was 6mo, I was scheduled to have surgery to try to fix my tubes. Two days before my surgery, I had pre-op BW done and my RE cancelled my surgery, as I cried in fear of not having the chance to have more kids...he told me I was already PG...huge surprise...my one tube works! Ive been wanting another now for awhile, but DH is hesitant. This PG is kinda a surprise too. DH was trying to not get PG while I was praying for a miracle swimmer...my prayers were answered!

In what ways do you think hypnobabies helped you most in pregnancy and birth? (I'm using it, so this question is totally selfish!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
You say pregnancy is like a high for you. Are you still feeling "on the high" or does it subside at some point?<br><br>
I know you said you aren't finding out the sex, but do you have any thoughts about what flavor baby you may be carrying?<br><br>
What are some of your hobbies?

I think Hypnobabies helped me relax and not get caught up in discomfort and anxiety. 1st time around I didn't use it and was terrified of what was to come and how much pain I was in...not knowing how painful it would get. 2nd time I used HB and some fears were released since I had already experienced birthing a baby, but this time I was set on not caving in on the epidural. HB got me to 9cm w/o really knowing it. I was so surprised to find out I was that far along, I forgot to continue with it and sounded like a strung-out junkie as it came time to push. This time I plan to follow thru with HB until the baby is out...I want a peaceful birth.<br><br>
I do feel pretty good and LOVE being PG. However, exhaustion this time around is killing me...I am waiting for that 2nd trimester energy burst and it hasn't shown up yet...my 2 and 3 yo are wearing me out I guess.<br><br>
I do think this is another boy...this PG had some slight differences but I feel like the baby is a boy.<br><br>
Hobbies...I wish I still had time for a hobby. I work FT as a teacher and then come home to my mommy job. The closest thing I get to a hobby these days is Sudoku...I have become addicted and can't sleep until I do one puzzle...it relaxes my mind.
