Welcome to your lodge! Congrats on making it this far! We're excited to share your journey.
OMG! It's already time for you to have a lodge? I swear it was just yesterday that you made your appearance over here and you were just 5 or 6 weeks pregnant. WOW! time sure flies! Congrats on your lodge!
Yay! Welcome tp your lodge!
Wow, I cannot believe I am already this far along. This pregnancy has just flown by for me. I will start this off with giving a little bit of background imfo.
Both me and DH (who for now on will be Finn since I hate using DH) are both graduate students at Iowa State. He just finished his masters in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and now is beginning a PhD in the same field. For his masters he looked at the effect of sprawl on amphibian populations in the greater Des Moines region. Now he is switching gears and looking at the effects of prairie restoration on grassland birds in Southern Iowa.
I am the eternal masters student. I started off in Landscape Architecture, but then m program fell through on me so after some time off I am back in school studying Biological illuastration. My dream is to write and illustrate childrens field ecology guides.
Iowa State is what brought us here to Ames, but neither one of us is from here. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH and Finn is a San Fransisco native. We met in college in Maine at a small (250 students) liberal arts college in Bar Harbor. So now we are here until Finn finishes his PhD and then who knows where. He wants to be a college professor so we have no clue where we will end up.
We are both really excited for the birth of little Hawkes. he will be our first child, but this is not our first pregnancy. I had a m/c two days before Christmas of last year which only made us realize how much more we wanted kids. We are planning a homebirth with a wonderful mw who we both adore, so we are really excited. Our biggest fear is having to go to the hospital.
So that is a brief overview....
Congrats on your lodge!
I look forward to sharing this journey with you, birth buddy!!!
Congrats on your lodge! I can't wait to follow the rest of your pregnancy.
We are TOO much alike! We're both working on our masters, we both had previous miscarriages that made us realize how much we really wanted a baby, and we're both having a homebirth with a midwife (sometime soon hopefully!!!). Crazy. Welcome to your lodge - these last few weeks seem to crawl, so maybe we can entertain each other!
