Where do you live? Portland OR
How old are you and your SO/DH? I'm 29 and my husband is 30.
What do you do? I'm a stay at home Mommy! I babysit another little boy my daughter's age a few days a week as well.
What does you SO/DH do? His job is actually really hard to describe. We've both tried to come up with a title, the best we could come up with is "expeditor"... But he does a little bit of everything. He works for his family's company; they're a machine shop that mainly makes submarine parts for the military.
How many kids do you have? One, a little girl named Sophia. She's so amazing and we're really excited that she'll have a little brother or sister soon!
What are you looking forward to most with having a new baby? Nursing! I was only able to nurse Sophia for a couple of months due to supply issues and a milk allergy. I really loved it and miss it. I think I know why my supply was so low to start, so hopefully I'll be off to a much better start with my next!
What are you most anxious about with having a new baby? The pregnancy. My pregnancy with Sophia was very complicated and high risk. I'm hoping this one is easier.

I'm a teacher, but I probably won't be returning to teaching until after my kids are both in school. My degree is in Secondary Education, but I taught Kindergarten after moving back home to Oregon. I'm definitely going back to teaching Kindergarten! They are the sweetest and it's so rewarding!!

My husband and I have been together for a relatively short amount of time! We met in December '08, were married April '10 and had our daughter in November '10! We moved fast, but I think we were just really sure of each other. Smile

What are 2 more things you'd like to share?? (1) I registered for 3 10k races prior to even knowing I needed IVF. Now that I am pg, I am considering either Angel dropping running all together or (b) switch to running 5k races. Right now I'm too scared to run at all. After 1st tri is over, I may start running again...very, very slowly. (2) I'm a kidney transplant recipient, thanks to my hubby who donated the kidney! We were a match! DD was a post-transplant miracle and so is this upcoming baby. Smile

I wouldn't worry too much about the running. I am a big runner too and my doc said it was fine, the only thing that I found was hard about running is having to pee all the time. I did a 10 k last week and have another in August.

I was knitting a blanket for my daughter to pass the time when I was on bedrest. I never finished it, it's halfway done and in her closet upstairs, but it was nice to have something to do with my hands! It really relieved stress too. I found patterns and how-to instructions on yahoo!

I hope your pregnancy is easier this time around for you! I had a scary pregnancy last time too, so I can relate to being worried. Sad
