    Welcome to your lodge Ericka! I just realized that you are 36wk2d and you don't yet have a lodge! Welcome! Hope to share your stories since we are so close in our EDDs!

    Well, I have to admit that I've really been looking forward to this! I kept checking to see if a lodge with my name would magically appear and here it is! Thanks Sarah! After DS goes to bed tonight I'll get on here and post a bit about myself.



    I am so excited!

    Yay, another lodge.

    Even though we're waiting to TTC until fall, I'm getting envious. I actually think I miss being pregnant.

    I will definately miss being pregnant, it's been almost two years straight! I am looking forward to be a skinny little thang again, providing I can lose all this weight!


    Like I said earlier, I am so excited to have my own lodge! I'll start by telling you all a bit about myself and my family.

    My name is Ericka and I am 27 (soon to be 28!) My birthday is July 5! I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and moved to California in 1990. I do not like it here btw, and don't recommend anyone move here if at all avoidable. I HAD to move with my parents after my dad lost his job. Now family, friends and of course, the almighty $$ keep us here (for now).

    I met DH, Brian in 1998. We were next door neighbors our first semester at college. I wouldn't say love at first sight but it didn't take long for me to know he was going to be the man I married. It took me some time to convince him of this though! On our 2 year "dating" anniversary, he proposed and we immediately set the date for Sept. We had a beautiful, traditional, although not really religious ceremony. His family is Jehovah's Witness and mine being Mormon made that semi difficult but, no one else in our families had "big" weddings. BTW, neither he or I are Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormon.

    For the first 5 years of our marriage we worked our asses off to buy a home, cars and vacation ALL the time. We are both SCUBA divers, so we travel to the Carribean and Mexico enjoying being young and having the $ to do so. In July of 2005 we took one last blow out vacation, we had decided to start trying for our family. We had the most awesome trip and spared no expense! We came home two weeks later and we got pg with DS, David on our first try. We were truly blessed to have had it be so easy for us. By this time too, I had quit working. We were building a new home and moving so it made sense to just quit a bit early. The following April, David was born and I have able to stay at home with him.

    God, bless those of you that had read this far! I apologize for being long winded, I am just enjoying sharing myself.

    David was such a wonderful and easy baby that we decided to start TTC in October of 2006. I was only 5 months pp but, I was blessed ( ) to have had my cycle come right back, even with breast feeding. I told DH that we had to get pregnant in October or wait until late Spring as I didn't want to be due in the late Summer of early Fall~too hot! Well, again we were blessed enough to get pregnant again on the first shot. DH doesn't look at it as being much fun, he'd prefer the "practice".

    We found out in January that we'll be having another boy! I am very happy to be surrounded by "my boys" and love that I can nuture a bit of "Momma's boy" into each of them!

    Well, I'll let that be it for now or I am sure my lodge will be avoided like the plague by those not wanting to read the rantings of a pregnant woman! Thanks for reading if you are still with me!

    Wow! You are a fertile Myrtile. Good for you. You must be very healthy. I can't wait to hear how your last weeks go, and to learn more about life in Cali, even if it's the horrible place you can't wait to leave.

    Hey - I'm glad someone else is long-winded I don't even realize until I'm done writing that it's so long most of the time, especially since I was always accused of not completely finishing my thoughts by my teachers and professors! Maybe that's why?

    Anyway, it's nice to find out other people's interests, and find out their stories.

    I hope to hear much more!
