getting to know you!

youre name Carolyn
age 26
DH/SO age 30
what number baby is this #2!! i can't believe we are having a second one already!! i guess that makes me a BTDT mom, which is SHOCKING to me!
if you have other babies, names and ages DS#1, Luke, 10 months
due date by my calculations, December 13th
where do you live Pennsylvannia
hoping for a boy or girl wow i dont know! id be sooo thrilled to have a little girl, but i really want Luke to have a brother close in age. If it was up to me, i'd never be able to choose.
what are you looking forward to the most about this pregnancy im just so excited to be pregnant again. its funny saying that now because while being pregnant with Luke, by 20 weeks i was so sick of being preg and couldn't wait for it to be over. We'll see how long i "enjoy" this Biggrin
what is one thing you are nervous about for this pregnancy? im wondering how it will be to have a new born and a 1.5 year old at the same time. I work night shift since my son was born. It hasnt been to hard... but i haven't tried it pregnant yet!
anything else you want to share? i was so scared and nervous when i found out i was pregnant this first time. going from no baby to one baby is a huge deal. going from one to two not at much. i think im going to enjoy this pregnancy alot more.

hopefully we can keep bumping this as the weeks go on and more people join us! feel free to add any other questions. i'm looking forward to getting to know everyone Smile

Any gender is fine... love a boy to even it out but boy or girl is great!!

what are you looking forward to the most about this pregnancy: Well- this is def. our last and I really would like to slow time down and enjoy every second of pgcy. Hard to do when I am running around with 3 others but will try my best! Wink

what number baby is this #3
if you have other babies, names and ages Alicia, 4.5 and Owen 2.5
due date by my calculations, December 14th
where do you live Alberta, Canada
hoping for a boy or girl Totally doesn't matter! We've been through enough infertility and miscarriages now that I just want a healthy, full term baby, either flavour is great! Wink Although DD definitely wants a baby sister. "We need to have a baby sister Mom, because I already have a baby brother!"
what are you looking forward to the most about this pregnancy Everything! Having a bump, feeling baby move, teaching my kids about pregnancy/birth as we go through it all, and so many more things.
what is one thing you are nervous about for this pregnancy? Nothing! I have wasted too much time in previous pregnancies and TTC times being nervous or worried or anxious about stuff. I've decided to have a strictly positive mindset this time around and just enjoy and appreciate every moment. Biggrin
anything else you want to share? We aren't telling our kids yet, but I can't wait to tell DD. She has been asking for a baby sister for probably a year and a half. For a while she was saying "Why is it taking so long for the baby to get here??" Lol She is going to be SO excited. DS won't understand as much until I'm bigger but he will be thrilled too as he loves pointing out little babies everywhere we go. He wants to go up and say hi to them, so he's going to think it's pretty cool to have a baby in the house (well, until he realizes that baby takes a lot of Mommy's time! :confused:)

DH/SO age 28
what number baby is this #3
if you have other babies, names and ages DD--Tehani, 3, DS--Teio, 1
due date somewhere around Dec. 12
where do you live Washington
hoping for a boy or girl since I already have a girl and a boy, I'll be happy either way. It would be nice for DS to have a brother close in age, but I also really love girls. DD told me she thinks its another boy.
what are you looking forward to the most about this pregnancy I always love feeling the baby move. I also want to have a blessingway/mother blessing celebration this time, so I'm looking forward to planning and having that. And I'm super excited to listen to my Hypnobabies CDs again!
what is one thing you are nervous about for this pregnancy? I'm nervous about making the right choice for a care provider and place of birth--I'm deciding between going back to the Dr. who I had DS with or seeing a homebirth midwife. I want to make the decision that is best for me and this baby and not based on ideology or loyalty.
anything else you want to share? I can't think of anything...

hoping for a boy or girl Beyond the obvious "I want a healthy baby" answer, I think I would love another girl. All the pretty little pink things, the little pony tail on the top of their head when they're just little, SO CUTE!!
what are you looking forward to the most about this pregnancy I can't wait to have the baby belly, to feel the baby moving, to have my other children be old enough to be excited about a new baby (they've all been asking for a baby). Can't wait!
what is one thing you are nervous about for this pregnancy? Telling my children too soon and something happening, and them being hurt over it.
anything else you want to share? This is most likely our last baby, so I am trying to savor every little moment. I'm fighting the urge to buy baby things, and I don't think it will be too long before I break!!
