YAY I get my own Lodge... Thank you all so much!!!
Now for my intro:
My name is Charity and I am only 20, Lee (my fiance who is 23) and I met when we were in high school. I was in 9th grade and he was in 11. We both had steady high school sweethearts at the time and he lived 2 hours away. I only remember meeting him once but he says we actually met twice. Well my high school sweetheart and I didnt work out after 4 years, so I began to run around and be kinda wild. I grew up as an airforce brat so millitary is looked at as a great thing in my familys eyes. After I got into some trouble my mom made me go talk to an Army recruiter who after much coaxing talked me into going to MEPS to take the physical and all that good stuff. Well while there I ran into Lee. He was leaving the next day to go to boot camp. We spent all night talking and during the course of the conversation I decided to give him my address and if he wanted to he could corespond with me while away. Well he left the next day and I thought well more than likely I wont hear from him again. It took nine days for me to recieve a letter from him... After that I wrote him a letter everyother day. To make a long story hopefully short we fell in love over the course of writting letters and talking on the phone. When he came home from AIT we started talking about us living together. It took us about four days to decide we didnt like the two hour drive that was keeping us from each other. So I moved to the itty bitty town Hooks, TX. We havent had the easiest realtionship but anything worth having takes work and we are both willing to put in the extra effort.
We did not plan on having any children ANY time soon if ever, but on Feb 7 I took five pregnancy test that confirmed that we were pregnant. Two days later my acceptance letter into nursing scool came in. (Needless to say nursing school will have to wait until 2009) I was totaly paniced about being pg, but Lee was the one who calmed me down and made me believe that this is best thing that could happen to us. (His dad died when he was two and he really wants the father son bond that he missed if that makes any sense.) My pregnancy has been relativly easy. I had the typical m/s which helped me lose about 10 lbs. but dont worry I ganined it all back plus alot more!!! We were going to be on Team Green but the ultra sound lady ruined our suprise. We are going to name our "bean" Xander Nolan. This will be my mothers first grandchild and his mothers third. Both of our familes are excited. I am not really sure what else to include... Since I found out that I was pregnant I been researching natural birth. I really want to do everything in my power to make sure it happens for me and my little one. I am not necessarly scared of the contractions I am really neverous about the crowing and ring o fire part. But I have faith in my body and hope to be able to use all the techniques that I have been taught and read about to insure that I make the right decision durring his birth. *My doctor is a really good frined of ours and has been totaly suportive with the decisions that I have made says he will work with me to the best of his abilities to keep the process natural.

I have a doctors apt, today!!
Look how cute you are! Thanks for shareing pics with us. I was 20 when I had my first baby, while I didn't do my research I did get a vaginal birth. My first experience led to all of my research and a much more natural second birth. I hope things go great for you, and I'm looking forward to following your story!
