    Default I'm baaaaaack

    Hi ladies, I am so excited to be back as a preggo momma! ahhhh!!!! I can't believe it. (Due time is around September 22nd) I see some familiar faces around these parts and many new people to get to know. For those of you I don't know me, my name is Erika. I am 37 and live in the Chicago area (but I used to live in Iowa for the other births) I had my first baby in May of 2005 - lovely home waterbirth. Then in 2007 I had my twins at home (water births also). Their stories are burried here somewhere in the files I am an allround crunchy kinda mom. We breastfeed, sling wear, cloth dipe (geeze I haven't had a diaper in 3+ years though!), co-sleep-, non circ., whole foods, family cloth, non-vax, and pretty much all thing AP. I feel so blessed to be on this journey one more time. I also also really praying that it is a singleton. I would appreciate any additional prayers, thoughts, blessings (Whatever grounds you) that this pregnancy is what we can handle. We always seem to overcome, but the twin pregnancy and the first 2 years was VERY challenging for my marriage.

    Other than all things birthy I am also a doula, a placenta encapsulist, a Breastfeeding Counselor with Breastfeeding USa (and former LLL leader) and hopefully a future midwife. I love to read, garden, knit, and cook. In addition to my three daughter I have two lovely kitties and a Collie named Bella who I compete in obedience with.

    Oh, and for those of you who are friends with me on Facebook: this is TOP Secret

    So glad you're back! Are you hoping for a boy this time, or to stick with what you know?

    right now i am hoping for 1 not 2, and healthy. I don't really pine for a boy, i feel like it will be a girl. I am ok either way. girls feel safe and i have her named, a boy would be a whole new adventure for us! and that might be really good.

    Congrats Erika and welcome back. I lurk some but not too often since I'm done having kids. I am a doula and a student midwife now though so I like to come here and get feedback sometimes.
