    I just noticed that you are at 36 weeks as well so need a lodge to call your own (I didn't see one done already).

    Welcome to your lodge!

    Thanks.

    I have a son, Jonathan, who was born in April of 1993. His Dad and I married in July of 1992 and later divorced.

    My DH and I met in 1996 while I was going through a divorce from my first husband. We dated off and on for several years. Our first daughter, Christiana, was born in January 1999. Ernest and I was married in August 2000. Our second daughter, Ariana, was born in January 2003. Our third daughter, Helaina, was born in April 2007.

    We said that we were done having babies after Helaina, but in December 2007, I became pregnant while I was on the pill. I was shocked, but I became excited and wanted another one. I found out in January 2008, that I lost that baby. I had a D&C at 9 weeks. I took the loss pretty hard and was determined to have another baby.

    I was so excited when I found out on April 20th, that I was pregnant!

    Birth story #1

    Jonathan was born on his EDD, April 26, 1993. I had a great pregnancy with him. I had some morning sickness in the beginning and heartburn from the fifth month on. I did take eating for two with him to heart. I gained 68 lbs.

    I lost my mucous plug around 11am on the morning of April 25. My sisters and I decided on walking around 5 pm to see if that would start anything. My water broke around 6pm while we were out walking. Contractions started around 10pm and I went to the hospital after midnight. I labored all day and he was born at 3:59 pm on April 26th after 2 1/2 hours of pushing. I did not have any pain meds with his birth. I do remember them giving me some Benadryl at some point to calm me down.

    He was 8 lbs, 13 ozs. I breastfed him for 4 1/2 months.

    Birth story #2:

    Christiana was born on her EDD, January 18, 1999. I woke up that morning to some minor contractions and I went to the hospital around 10 am. I was admitted and labored for the rest of the afternoon. I did not have any pain medications. She was born at 7:53 pm after 2 hours of pushing. She weighed 8 lbs 15 ozs.

    I had a good pregnancy with her, no morning sickness, just the usual heartburn towards the end. I did have some spotting at 11 wks with her, but everything turned out ok. I did better with the weight gain and only gained 45 lbs with her. I breastfed her for the first 6 weeks until I had to go back to work.

    Birth story #3:

    Ariana was born on January 24, 2003, during my 38th week. I had a good pregnancy with her. No morning sickness just heartburn. I did have a scare around 17 weeks when I bled for 7 days from a small placental tear.

    I was sore and tired of being pregnant on Jan. 23rd, so I decided to take some castor oil. I took it in the evening and several hours later it sent me to the restroom a few times. I went to bed around 10 pm and I woke up around 2 am with contractions. I decided to let DH sleep for awhile. Around 5 am, the contractions were getting stronger. I woke up DH and told him that I was in labor.

    DH thought that we had plenty of time so he moved slowly. We dropped the kids off at my sister's around 6 am. The contractions were strong at that time and I barely could stand them. We arrived at the hospital at 6:30 am and I was checked. I was already at 7 cms. Ariana was born at 7:29 am after 20 minutes of pushing weighing 7 lbs 12 ozs.
