late intro

Hi everyone, thought it was best I introduce myself after lurking for a while (and being totally in denial).

I'm Esther (41), SAHM to the five in my siggy, twins Cameron and Tyler (10), Ryan (7), Logan (5) and Samantha (2). DH (42) works overseas and is away 9 weeks every 3 months so it's pretty much just me.

I'm unexpectedly pg with #6 and am due April 1 according to dates. My last U/S showed my EDD March 23 though. I don't have a history of early deliveries so still expect to deliver in April.

So far things are going well. I've gained all of 4½lb and it feels like it's all in my breasts. :eek:

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Welcome!! I'll likely be delivering in March, but like April anyway, too. My first was born in April Smile Also, not to sound like a stalker, but I LOOOOOOOVE NZ! I have friends from the Golden Bay area of the South Island, and got to visit for a month, several years ago.

Yay someone else to share my EDD!!! I sort of figure I will deliver in March as well because my last one was almost 2 1/2 weeks early (and she measured bigger too). Although she's a determined little monster so that could be why!

Congrats and welcome! Are you going to find out what you're having (if you haven't already)???

Welcome! Yes your children are gorgeous Smile
While my official EDD is mid-April, I'll deliver in March because I'm having triplets. Also, we're in each other's 'neighborhood'- we live in Singapore (from the states) and we absolutely love NZ, too! It's just so fresh and beautiful.

Congrats and welcome! I'll be 42 when this LO arrives - nice to have another, ahem, "mature" mom here :). Kuddos to you for handling everything while your DH is overseas for so much, that must be tough.
