    OK! Where to start...

    Dh and I met a little over 4 years ago at a live action role playing camp (sort of like Dungeons and Dragons but for waay bigger dorks) We started dating within about a month of talking, moved in with each other the same day we started dating, and we've been together ever since! We got engaged about 8 months after we started dating, and we got married 10 months later.

    I wanted to get pregnant ASAP, but DH and someone upstairs had different plans! After we both got better paying jobs, bought a house, made like a gazillion dollars in debt, and got our lives into adult mode, we started seriously talking about having a baby. It took me a looong time to convince DH that a baby wouldn't ruin his life, and we finally settled on TTC in July of 08.

    Weeell, apparently someone upstairs had a differeqnt plan yet again, because on June 27th, 2008, I got my BFP! Everything went perfectly, no M/S, no nausea, very minimal change in my body until about 8 weeks - and I've been in maternity pants ever since! I've felt great my entire pregnancy, other than a couple hiccups along the road, everything has been as ideal as a pregnancy could go!

    Dh and I had some differences in opinion of where and how to deliver our little man. After I said he could give birth to our son wherever he wanted to once he got pregnant, he stopped arguing So we are going to a natural birth center, within a hospital, so we both get what we want. I get my NCB and DH has the peace of mind of being in a hospital. We have decided to keep him in tact and he will be on a delayed vacc schedule. I've actually been pleasantly surprised at how willing DH has been to look into a more natural approach to our son's birth.

    Now that I have 4 weeks left, I think the nesting bug has finally found me! Everyone keeps telling me he will be here early, and I think he will as well. I think I will only be pregnant for about 2 more weeks, but I guess he will show up when he is good and ready!

    I couldn't be happier I found this board, and I plan on sticking around after the little guy shows! I'll try and post some belly and nursery pics later! Thanks for reading

    Welcome to your lodge! Nice pictures!

    Sooo…. Do why do you think baby is going to be early?

    Do you have any special projects that you have been working on?

    Do you know if it’s a boy or girl?

    Do you have any name ideas?

    Are you planning to use cloth/disposable/EC? Why?

    Have you chosen any support people for the birth yet? Who and why?

    Are your parents supportive of a midwife/homebirth (if you are having a homebirth…)

    Sounds like you guys have everything thought through. I look forward to following this journey with you. I'm interested to hear the reasoning behind why you think he'll be early as well? I've given up on the idea that I'll ever even have a baby on time Hope your luckier then I have been!

    Thanks for posting. How fun! The pics are great! I too am interested in why you think the baby will be early.
