Introducing myself

I've been posting on the Feb '13 board but I'm due Feb 26/27 (I say 27th but ob's office says 26th lol) and my earliest babe was 4 days late so I have this sneaking suspicion that I'm having a March baby. So, I figured I'd get to know you ladies as well. If you'll have me!

I'm Danielle, this is baby #4 for us. Hubby, Ed, and I have technically only been married for a year but we've been together for nearly 10 years. We're high school sweethearts that people kept saying wouldn't make it. Jokes on them though because we're still very much in love and going strong. Blum 3 We were apprehensive when I got my BFP this time because the timing wasn't so great but everything seems to be falling into place for us now (right down to dh will be starting a new job with twice the income on Monday!) so we're happily awaiting our new arrival. We have 3 boys- Adam (10), Logan (6 in 2 weeks! :eek:), and Xander (2). We're really hoping for a girl this time around but boys are fun so we'll be happy either way.

In an attempt to briefly paint a picture of our family- we cosleep, babywear, cloth diaper, breastfed until self weaned and I try to keep the home free of chemical cleaners and feed our little ones healthy foods (though admittedly, sometimes I'm a horrible eater). With that said, we are also gamers and just all around huge geeks here.

I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Welcome and HH9M! Definitely pro-geek in our household, too! Congrats on your dh's new job!

Thanks! HH9M to you too. We're pretty excited about his job. The only downside to it is that he'll be working alongside FIL- who is a bit abrasive sometimes but I'm sure he'll be fine. Wink

Congrats and welcome!
My EDD from my O date was Feb 27th but my at my u/s I was only showing 6w/6w1d so my date changed to March 4th. My DD had a mystery EDD (original was Dec 25th, u/s gave us Jan 16th) and was induced more than 2 weeks 'early' at 22 inches long, and over 8lbs (and appearing about a week late). I've always said I'd hate to see how big she would have been had they left in in! I say she was late and I'm expecting this one to be late also but I lurk and occasionally post in Feb.

Looking forward to getting to know you!

:lurk:

I am lurking from the Nov. 2012. I read your story and had to say hi, and introduce myself. It sounds like you and I have very similar stories Smile DH and I met when we were 16, and started dating our senior year of HS. We have been together over 10 years, and are pregnant with our 4th. Our oldest (DS1) Dayne is 6 (just turned in June), our 2nd (DS2) Xander is 3.5 (birthday is Feb), our third (DD) Serenity just turned 2 in July, and #4, DS3 is due in November.

HH9M to you Smile

That is very similar! I love the name Serenity but that's mostly because I'm a Joss Whedon nut, to be perfectly honest. HH9M to you too. Smile

Hi Danielle!

I just got a BFP and I think I am due at the end of March. How exciting to share another birth month with you!

(I can't believe my little boy will be 6 in a few weeks either!)

Thanks, though its only another 10 to 14 weeks for me lol. We like Joss Whedon too Smile One of the reasons my husband agreed to DD's name Wink In fact, had this baby been a girl the name River was on our list Smile
