Fave Activity: Thrift store shopping
Facebook: I have a Facebook. Trying to keep this pregnancy a secret for awhile though which is why I'm not saying my names or kids names on the web

Birth Plans: Repeat CS. My first birth (vaginal) was absolutely horrific which is why I had a planned CS the next time. I also have been diagnosed with an IBD so my OB definitely recommends a CS over VBAC even if I wanted to.

Fave Activity: Playing video games and watching tv cause that's about all I have the energy for. I'm constantly tired.

Birth Plans: Hoping to go into labor naturally this time and not having to be induced. Hoping for another vaginal birth,but this time I want to see if I can do it drug free. Last time I had an epidural. I had a pretty short labor only 6 hours so hoping this one is shorter and I can do it without a epidural.

Other children: Drew 9, Brinley almost 7, Rowan almost 4, and Ellie just turned 2
Live: Denver
Fave Activity: Sewing! I love making clothes for my kids...especially dresses for my girls. I also quilt.
Facebook: I'm not on facebook, too much of a time suck for me. I'd rather be with my family or sewing!
Addictions: Green & Blacks organic mint chocolate! Hubs brings me home a bar everytime he goes grocery shopping.
Birth Plans: As natural as possible, not a fan of inducing. Although my doc is concerned this time because my last baby came after only 1 hour of labor and was born 4 minutes after we got to the hospital. We barely made it and we lived 5 minutes from the hospital at the time. Now we live 35 min from the hospital so my OB wants to break my water at 39 weeks. Decisions, decisions!
