Who's here and expecting?

I'm just curious who is around that is pregnant. I noticed the lodge list is pretty empty. There seem to be quite a few April 2013 ladies with lodges but after that I think it's just me on the list. I see some other posts of expectant mamas but no one requesting a lodge anytime soon. Any other natural birthers out there who are going to be active on this board. Please feel free to chime in even if you aren't "in a family way" Wink If any lurkers out there, come on and jump in too. Smile

Me! Me! Smile I'm not due until October, though, so that's quite a gap...I expect some more ladies will find their way over here before then, though (or at least I sure hope so!)

It is a bit slow around here. Hope some more ladies join in soon!

I wish I was preggo, does that count?! Wink I lurk for the most part but do post on general question type threads. I never seem to have time to keep up with lodges for the most part though I have been posting on Elizabeth's! Smile

I know Mel, I hate you weren't able to stay in June 2013. Sad
I know at the time you weren't sure when/if you would TTC again..how are you feeling now? Just ignore my question if you don't feel like answering Smile

I'm definitely on board to TTC. I'm trying to get DH on board to TTC in July for a March/April 2014 baby. I needed a lot of time to process what had happened.

Hi Lissy, nice to meet you! Come out of lurkdom and chat with us!

Mel, I'm excited that you guys are on board for TTC again soon. It has to be so hard to process a miscarriage and want to try again. Hugs! But I hope you get a super sticky bean next time and on the first try too! I hope to be stalking you here next year!

Yahoo! You're getting close...are you going to do a lodge? I'd love to follow your last weeks of this pregnancy and birth here. Smile

Mel, I think April would be a great month to have a baby. Tons of baby dust to you! Biggrin

I'm around a bit. Expecting #4 in October. I've had two (medically necessary) inductions and one natural birth and would love a natural birth again if baby and my body cooperate.

I mostly lurk here but I would like to join! I am due the middle of August with a little guy! I had my son naturally almost 4 years ago and would like to go naturally again! My son was born only an hour and a half after arriving to the hospital so I am thinking I will probably have another fast labor and delivery! I had an epidural with my daughter so even though it was painful I do prefer to go naturally Smile

I just found out I am pregnant with #5. Unplanned and quite a surprise. I have a 9 1/2 month old who is still breastfeeding so I haven't had any periods...and because of that have no idea how far along I am or when I am due. I will update with that info when I get in to see my midwife in the next 6 weeks... but I am planning another all natural delivery and birth. Count me in!

Hi Molly and Kimia! Glad you ladies are going to be hanging around. Smile

Molly we are due 2 days apart...I'm June 23rd. Are you interested in doing a lodge. I'd love to have someone else to follow! It's fairly quiet around here right now but I'll start your lodge if you would like one. Smile

Kimia, I have only lurked on this board before but I do remember the arrival of your last little one and all you went through leading up to the birth with him being breech. Congratulations on expecting again! Biggrin

Hi Lynn! I did notice we are due the same time Smile If I go by my calculation I'm due the 23rd, but the OB has it as the 21st. I will argue it if needed when my OB starts talking induction Wink
I'm happy to have a lodge thanks! I still have the link to my old lodge:

Molly, I read through your lodge last night...sounds like your little ones like to keep you waiting at the end! I don't know how well I would do with that trial of my patience Wink

I'm going to start your new lodge now so I can start following your current progress! Smile

I'm jumping back in now that I'm 30 weeks and feeling like I can't really be in denial anymore that I'm going to have a baby!! So I'm due mid Aug. Hey Kelly, are you active on our birth board any more? I just joined in over there again too.

Hi Deb, I remember you from my lurking. Wink I didn't realize you were getting so close! How are you feeling, everything going well?

Thanks. I am feeling pretty well, other than some aches and pains. Sleeping can get really uncomfortable. I am a lot older than I was the last time I had a baby, and my joints get really sore at night, especially when I sleep soundly and don't roll over as much. The baby has a lot of amniotic fluid, so she feels like she is constantly rolling around in there and pushing every which way.

I can totally relate. I think you just described my aches and pains right down to the constantly moving baby!
