I was not sick when I was pg w/ ds. I have been sick (up until this past Fri.--hooray for 12 weeks!) all day long and have had very little energy. I have had a lot of taste and smell aversions, too.<br><br>
My birth plans include a homebirth w/ two midwives...perhaps water will be involved!<br><br>
Right now, my favorite food has been this certain turkey sandwich from a local restaurant...just turkey, cheese, lettuce, and mayo, on white foccacia. And, I have been a strict veg. for nearly 15 years...I just need them!<br><br>
I have a BS in secondary education in English and Speech/Drama. I have like 184 credits...I took everything.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

My favorite thing about where I live is Lake Superior. It is amazing. More amazing than imaginable (if you've not seen it).<br><br>
I am crafty. I teach beading classes and make jewelry on the side for consignment. I do other things, too...<br><br>

I found MDC when I was pregnant w/ ds. I was an avid reader of the magazine. My username was an old email...I got it from an Edward Abbey book (<span style="text-decoration:underline;">Desert Solitaire</span>)...I tested plant names until I came up w/ something that didn't require a number.<br><br>
The most inspiration person to me in my life right now is........my son, he's 31 mo.<br><br>
I got the BFP around Aug. 20 (baby conceived Aug. 2). I got a false negative the week before...same thing happen w/ ds.<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I feel like it could seriously be a boy, and I feel like I'd like a boy...but this pregnancy has been so different so far that I think it could, too, be a girl. Feeling mixed up about it all.<br><br>
My favorite color is bright olive green.<br><br>
I do not watch football (but when I did, when I was young, I was a Packer fan...)

I would recommend that you squat (with your feet flat) as much as you possibly can. I would also recommend doing a hundred thousand kegels everyday (or at least as many as you can remember to do). Finally, learn to meditate...it will come in handy when labor comes.<br><br>
My favorite children's books is: <span style="text-decoration:underline;">It's Okay to be Different</span> by Todd Parr.<br><br>
My least favorite thing about being pregnant is the fact that I have to pee 1-2 times every night...then I'm awake and have a hard time falling back to sleep.

I'm currently reading <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Seraching for the Sound</span> by Phil Lesh. It's pretty good. I enjoy fiction by writers like Chuck Palaniuk (sp?), Denis Johnson, Richard Brautigan (I love him so...), Salinger, Edward Abbey, Charles Bukowski, Ina May Gaskin...I like biographies. I like anything about herbs, rocks/gems or homeschooling, homebirthing, natural family living or eclectic beliefs.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I've given birth. Birth is challenging. It is, by far, the most challenging thing I've ever encountered.

My son is 31 mo. His name is Casimir Seamus (said KAS i mer SHAY mus)<br><br>
My partner and I met at a bar...I was the cocktail waitress...He asked me if I was into porcupines...I asked him if he meant the mountains or the animal...he said the mountains (there is a small range called the Porcupine Mtns. near here)...we went on a spring break vacation w/ a large group of people and the rest is history. We literally moved in together within three days (he's the only guy I've actually lived with). We've been together for 8 1/2 years, now...not married yet, though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I listen to everything indie...esp. Canadian Indie. I also love folk and bluegrass and jazz, and well, everything except contemporary country, pop/mainstream, and Christian music ...My faves are: The Grateful Dead, Miles Davis, Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith, Tori Amos, Ani DiFranco, Sigur Ros, Devendra Banhart, Iron and Wine, Arcade Fire....I could go on and on...........<br><br>
This was a planned baby. After we lost a baby in March, we have been trying and trying...that baby made us want another. We were expecting it!
