<p>Hello! My name is Katie and you can call me Katie! </p>
<p>I have no children this would be my husband, Richard, and my first! </p>
<p>We live in Cincinnati, Ohio, we just moved here a few months ago and bought our first house in August and renovated the kitchen ourselves literally after we put the faucet in, we found out we were pregnant, talk about timing!! </p>
<p>We want a home birth and I have joined a home birth group here in Cincinnati, it is harder here in Ohio because CPMs are not regulated! If anyone is from Cincinnati, or knows some midwives I can talk to that would be great!! Also any other information on anyone's home birth including price so I have an idea, that would be amazing!</p>
<p>My hobbies include baking, i really enjoy cooking, and record buying and listening to (if you count that)</p>

<p>Hi! I'm Becky. Wife and mother of 3 kiddos (6, 4, and 23 months)</p>
<p>Tested just this morning. I'm pretty sure I'm 3-4 weeks. My cycle was still all wonky since I'm still nursing at night, so I'm not sure when I ovulated.</p>

<p>Hi, </p>
<p>I'm Anik, I live in Montréal, Québec (CAN).</p>
<p>I have a 3 and a half year old son named Henri.</p>
<p>Due date: June 27</p>
<p>Hobbies: gardening, TV series watching, Pinteresting, Politics, crosswords ... but really I don't have a lot of time for personal hobbies anymore, when I do have time for myself I prefer using it to see my friends.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anything else you like to share: I speak French everyday, it's also my first language, I'm always happy to learn new vocabulary and to improve my English grammar so feel free to tell me my mistakes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also I'm not so crunchy in my everyday life, I know it's not an excuse, but my family lives a crazy life and I try nor to set expectations for myself I can't sustain. Though with pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and the first year of a child I feel like it's an invaluable investment to push myself toward a more natural lifestyle. I had a midwife with my first son (although I ended up having a C-section), I breastfed exclusively and babywearing was such a pleasure for me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm looking forward to this baby with great expectations, it took us a year to conceive and I'm so happy I'm finally pregnant. I can't wait to know you all.</p>

<p>Best of luck to all you ladies out there. I just took another test because I was feeling off and the test came back negative. </p>

<p>I'm so sorry, mamabear. It seems like a lot of us know what it's like to lose an expected child and all of us can imagine how devastated you must feel. Hug your kids close. It's the only thing that helped me. Best of luck for all you do in the future.</p>

<p>So I was sitting here, calculating everything and it's putting my due date at June 13th. I thought I was only 3-4 weeks but it's saying I'm 6 weeks 4 days. I had my period September 6th, lasted 7 days and I usually ovulate 5 days later (on a regular 28 day cycle). Does this sound right? Can't count from when we had sex because I don't keep track of the exact days.</p>

<p>Welcome to all the new expecting moms! </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Becky </strong>According to the due date calculator you are 6 weeks as it counts from the first day of your last period, not the day you ovulate -if that helps.</p>

<p>That does make sense. Thank you. I was just at a pregnancy center, and they calculated 6 weeks 4 days, putting me at June 13th.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So sorry for your loss, mamabear. xxxxxxx</p>

I'm incredibly sad to have to leave this group before getting to know you all. We lost our little one today (before I even had very long to dream about him or her). Best to each of you on your journeys- you'll be in my thoughts.
