1. I would say getting to watch my kids turn into little people with unique personalities. I love watching them grow and learn new things.

2. Hmmmm that is a hard one! Let's see, I would like to become a CNM (certified nurse midwife), do some traveling in europe(after we retire and the kids are grown), build a small cottage on a remote lake somewhere in MI, where we live)

3. Chocolate chip!

How about your Lions and Tigers!?!? I'm excited for when the Packers play the Lions- that'll be interesting!

How often do you feel your baby move? I know you said you have an anterior placenta, just wondering if its getting more frequent/stronger?

Do you work full-time or part-time? What will you do after the baby is born as far as leave? And will you work right up until you have the baby, or do you plan to stop earlier?

1. I know for once the Lions are awesome! My husbands family has had season tickets for the last 10 years and now finally they can be proud! My hub goes to every game! We live about 2 hours from Ford field. My husband is a Lions fanatic so he hates the your packers Smile especially now that they are both 5-0. Thanksgiving day should be very interesting Wink

2. I am now feeling movement everyday throughout the day. The movement is definitely not as strong as with my last 2 though.

3. I work part time, 24 hours/week. I work mon,Tues,Thurs. So I always have a 3 day weekend which is very nice! I will be taking about 10 weeks totally off and then probably go back at 2 days/week for 2 weeks and then return to my 3 days/week. I plan to work right until I go into labor! The end of pregnancy is usually very easy for me (thankfully) so I have no issue with working right up to the day. Last time I went to work at 40 weeks 1 day and then had my baby the next day. It was super annoying that everyone and their brother at work was asking "so when are u having that baby" or "you are STILL here?"

Me and DH met in high school. I was in 9th grade when we first met and then we started dating halfway through my sophomore more year (his junior year). We had a class together and the sparks flew Smile we have been together ever since. We got engaged my freshman year of college and then married my sophomore year.

I am most excited about it being a homebirth!

We will have 2 midwives present and both my mom and MIL will be there. I think I may invite a friend of mine and the possibly a doula student. My mom and mil will be in charge of the kids. I am hoping they will all be present at the birth. My son who will be 4 is very excited about it. But if it becomes to overwhelming for either kid one of the mothers will take them away.

I really feel like it is a girl! I will be excited either way though.

No he has not yet. I have felt babe move from the outside but he is never around when it happens!

How were your other labor's with your other children?

My births have been wonderful experiences! The second better than the first. With my first I knew I wanted a natural birth so we hired a doula. At 39 weeks 4 days, I went into labor at 8am with my water breaking first and then contrations shortly after and labored at home all day with the doula and my husband. We only lived 5 mins from the hospital so I wasn't concerned about not making it in time. I got to the hospital at 7pm and was 10cm and fully effaced. I didn't start pushing until around 8:30ish and he was born at 10:30pm. Had 2nd degree tears that needed repair. So it was around a 14.5 hour labor from start to finish. I felt great! Never was the pain more than I could handle.

With #2 we decided to use a free-standing birth center which was 30 mins from our house. I LOVED it! At 40 weeks 2 days, I had my first contraction at around 3am. Didn't start hard labor until around 5:45isham. First called my mom to have her come over to stay with my son (who was sleeping) Called the midwives to tell them we were on our way over. Left around 6:15am roads were icy so it took us way longer than normal to get there and I was in HARD labor which sucked! Got there around 7am was 8-9 fully effaced. Got in the birth tub at some point fully dialted, felt my water pop and after 15 mins of my body pushing all on its own she was born at 7:50am! It was wonderful and not tearing this time! Left the birth center to go back home about 6 hours later. I felt like a million bucks!

Are you excited for a homebirth?

YES! I am nervous though that it may not happen because the policy at the birth center is that no other moms can be in labor at the same time as a Homebirth hopeful since they don't have enough midwives to support a mom at the birth center and at home at the same time. So I would have to go over to the birth center in that case, which is fine because I Love it there too!

Will your children be present when you give birth? (just curious Wink LOL)

Yes that is the plan. If they are sleeping or something we wont wake them up for it. If they get scared during my mom or MIL will take them somewhere else.

Probably all the sex dreams I have! The other night I was DTD with Seth Rogan! LOL

I would love 4 but my hubby is pretty set on 3. I am thinking maybe in like 5 years I could talk him into another, that is if I can hold him off from getting the big V!

1. Seth Rogan, really? Not my top pick, but he'd definitely keep it fun I'm sure Wink
2. Have you been having to console your DH since last night's game? The Lion's game today didn't help either I'm sure Sad
3. How often are you having Braxton Hicks? Are they painful at all?

1. I KNOW Seth Rogan of all people! It was so strange! I have no clue how the heck he could have been on my mind because I haven't seen a movie with him in it in such a long time! Plus I could think of about 100 other celebrity men that I would rather be DTD with! lol

2. Well we aren't that big into baseball so didn't really care. It was exciting to see them do so well for while but I knew it would come to an end. Yeah the Lion's game was a big blow to him. He was in a TERRIBLE mood last night after they got home from the game.

3. I have them probably 2-3 times per day if that. Some days I don't notice having one and others it is more like 3. They aren't painful at all just annoying.
