    Thank you!

    About me... I'm 29 and married. DH, Dave, is 32. We live in Washington State. We met while I was a senior in college, then I went across country for two years for grad school. We got married when I came back; that was just over 5 years ago. Currently, we both work for the same employer. We started as managers for a storage facility but have progressed to construction foreman (DH) and bookkeeper (me). This position should allow me to work from home when the baby is born, at least for a while.

    This was a surprise pregnancy for us. We had not been using formal birth control for a few years, but I'd always been so regular that the calendar worked fine for us. Turns out I ovulated about 2 weeks late at the time we conceived. Thus, we are expecting a little girl! She is anticipated on Nov 3rd. This will not only be our first child but the first grandchild for all our parents.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any friends within normal driving distance that have had children. Thus, I'm so thankful for pregnancy.org. I've always thought that I wanted a natural childbirth but I wavered during 1st and 2nd trimester because of fear. Somehow I stumbled upon The Birth Book by Sears which has helped me tremendously to reformulate my thinking. For insurance purposes, and because I was so clueless in the beginning, I see a group of 6 midwives and will deliver with one of them at the hospital. I consider myself lucky because the midwives are generally low-intervention and the hospital is much more open to natural birth than many of the stories I've heard. They have jacuzzi tubs and birth balls, etc and actually encourage their use.

    Okay, that is plenty info for now.

    Thank you again for my lodge, I'm so excited to be getting this close!
