What do you and/or your SO/DH do for work?

Good idea Lesli! DH was in the army for 6 years thinking he'd go career and changed his mind later on. He'd LOVE to be a firefighter.

DH is an ironworker but he's done most all aspects of building (was an engineer in the army). He loves being out in the field and building stuff, but he has to go out of state to do it so the commute is really taxing.

I am a freelance writer. I mostly do online content and articles for websites and newspapers and I blog. I write part time now as my main job is being a SAHM but I love keeping fresh on things. I also do creative writing but don't make nearly enough time for it. Having DD has refueled the fire though. I can't expect her to pursue her passions if I don't too.

Sure. It's miaisreading.blogspot.com . It's pretty basic right now, I have a lot of stuff to do (a rating system, new background etc) but I'm going to see if my cousin who does graphic design can put some stuff together for me as he knows my style.

It's hard with DH's being gone a lot. I hope our DH's are local when labor comes! That's my only real fear besides hemorrhaging again as the commute would be 2-3 hours for DH if I went into labor while he's at work.

Nidia - That's awesome that DH gets to be around a lot despite having so much on his plate. Biggrin

We are making sure he will be here....his busy season is between end of may - September so my due date cant be in those months! So I only have a few months until we would have to put ttc on hold again

That's smart to plan ahead! If they ever have slow months it's the winter at DH's work but this winter was the opposite. Not that I want him out of work but it would be a convenient time of year if he had a week or two off for when baby arrives.
