Thanks gals! I don't have time for a long intro right now because we're moving furniture and I'll be needed in a sec and then I have to go get DD #1 from the sitter's house. I promise I'll come back and give a proper intro later!
welcome to your lodge Jenny! You know I'll be stalking it.

Okay, as promised, I'm back for a quick intro. I'm not totally sure what to include, so you may have to indulge me... I will try to post pictures later...
I'm Jenny, 29, and I have been married for 4 1/2 years to DH Tim, who just turned 31. I have been a middle school band director, but I will be a SAHM this next year, but still teach a few private lessons on flute and maybe French Horn. DH is an airline pilot. We have one DD, Peyton Elizabeth, who is our Halloween baby. Here's a quick summary of her birth:
I woke up on 10/31/05 not feeling 100% but still went to work anyway. I started feeling "crampy" at work and told my co-worker that I was going to go home and lie down to rest. I got home at about 1:30 or so and proceeded to take a bath, take a shower, etc. all with DH freaking out that I was in labor. I wasn't sure at that point. I did have contractions, but they were very sporadic. We ended up leaving, on DH's insistance, and going to the hospital. We got there at around 5:30 and my water broke in the triage area. They finally got me into a room and then I was able to get up and walk around and go to the bathroom. I sat down on the potty and started feeling the urge to push. DD was born at 7:48 pm. She's a sweetheart, although take that with a grain of salt as she is 2 1/2...
So, now I'm 37 1/2 weeks into this pg with DD #2. I have felt pretty good, but heartburn and restless legs have been killing me. I can't get any sleep these days. We are going for all-natural birth #2 and I'm so excited! I feel like with my first pg I was not that informed about things. This time, I've read books- Henci Goer, Ina May Gaskin, etc. and I've seen the Business of Being Born, and I've just done more research. I am now more committed to as little intervention as possible, even moreso than I was before. This time, I'm GBS negative, so I won't even have to have an IV! Next birth, I'm doing a homebirth. DH just wasn't that on board with it this time, and now he is, but I don't want to switch care givers this late.
Let's see, what else? Oh, the other boards I hang out on are the Oct. 05' board from DD, the Photography board for my budding hobby, and the cloth diapering board- my new obsession!
Anything else yall' want to know, just ask! I will get pictures up soon!
Hey Jenny...I'm so excited for your lodge!
Oh, and I'm a flute player too! I was drum major in high school...totally could have been a band director, but when I started college as a music major, I realized I didn't like the program but, I still play the flute
How have you been feeling? Sorry to hear about the restless legs...
