    Oh my goodness! Is it time for this already?! I realized the other day that this baby *could* come any day now (but she won't!)...and that freaked me out a little bit! I'll start on this tonight when the kiddies go to sleep.

    Thanks everyone! I'm so excited!

    Ok, so just to warn you guys: I tend to wear my life on my sleeve and can be very open with my things. I also can be extremely long-winded on the subject of birth…it’s something I’m very passionate about and can just go on and on and on…so if I do that, I hope you don’t mind! I’ll try to post when I can – it will most likely happen at night after my girls are in bed. That’s when I have the most time to sit down and concentrate on a project.

    So, this'll be posted in parts here and there. And I guess I start from the beginning!

    I’m Lorna (26) and DH is Jonathan (Jonny, 2. We met in January 2003. I had moved to Utah to go to BYU, he had gone on a mission for the LDS church and came home to Utah after his parents moved from California. Long story short: one of my roommates (who was a friend from high school) has a cousin who was best friends with my DH. So we met through them. DH actually ended up dating another one of my roommates…and she turned out to be kinda crazy. We became good friends through the drama of all that and the night before I was leaving to go back home to California he told me that he liked me. I couldn’t really deal with that, seeing that I was leaving for 4 months. We kept in contact throughout the summer, and he started dating a girl before I got back. They were pretty serious so I just kinda phased myself out. But he called at the end of October and told me that he and his brothers were doing a haunted house in their backyard for Halloween and he wanted me to come. I was hesitant, but ended up going…and he told me that ┬Čthe girl had just broken up with him the day before. I stuck around that night and we ended up kissing (yes, I was totally the “rebound girl”). Over the next 3 months we had a very on and off relationship. I got sick of it and finally gave him and ultimatum. We either seriously date or we don’t date at all. So, he gave in, and about two months later on March 26, 2004, he proposed at Disneyland! We were married in the Salt Lake City, Utah LDS temple on July 17, 2004. We lived in Utah for a year after that and then spontaneously moved to Virginia where his brother owned a house and was going overseas for a couple years. We didn’t have to pay rent and it was an opportunity that we couldn’t pass up.

    Almost a year later in June 2006, I convinced DH that it was time to have a baby, so I went off of BC. I went to an OB/GYN in the area for a pre-prenatal checkup, where I thought they would do all kinds of tests to see if I was ‘healthy’ enough to have a baby (like I read about on the TTC 0-12 months board). But she just met with me in her office and told me that if we wanted to have twins that we should try right away because I was most fertile from coming off of BC (I thought that sounded weird). I was already thinking about switching to a midwife at this point. My oldest sister had switched to midwives and birthed her last 2 in birth centers, so that made a big influence in my decision. Because of her, I knew I wanted to have a natural birth. My reasoning started off as “because my sister did it.” There weren’t any real personal reasons for it.
