I added myself to the 'list' a couple of weeks ago, but i just haven't had the time to actually say hi yet! My work schedule is very overloaded, but I have a May 12th deadline, so things will calm down substantially after that!
Anyway, I'm Katie, married to DH, K. We have one little boy, C, who will be 2 in June! I can't believe it!
I used a traditional OB with DS as we lived in a small town with not many options. Had him in the hospital naturally (while begging for an epidural that thankfully never got placed!)
This time we are using a midwife and delivering in a freestanding birth center. I can't tell you how good it has been for us to make this decision! I am of course dealing with normal fears, and I had a partial abruption with DS, but was not determined to risk me out of the mw practice. Mostly just looking forward to being able to work through the pain on my terms...not tied to a bed!
We found out a couple of weeks ago we are having another little boy and are so excited! I think we have his name picked out too, which I'll share with you guys, but not IRL. we are 90% sure we are going with Boden Warren L___. He'll go by Bode (pronounced Boh-dee)
Anyway, sorry this got so long - this is the first break I've taken in what feels like weeks! After the 12th I'll be more active and less lurk-y.
Looking forward to getting to know you all!
