Excited to Join you-Intro

Hey ladies!

I just wanted to quick introduce myself. My name is Chaise (25) and my boyfriend of 3 years Justin (30) are expecting our 2nd baby in October. We currently have Hailey Jean who is 17 months old (I am an active member of the Sept 2010 birth board). We just found out today I am pregnant again! We haven't used any birth control since Hailey was 8 months old and we JLIH, and it finally did! I'm not a charter but did track my periods normal cycle 27 days so I am a few days late and just had a really strong feeling. Yesterday I told him I was late, today I asked if I should test or just wait. He wanted me to wait a few days but I am a POAS-aholic so I couldn't control my urge to POAS. This after I got a really positive line, he is excited and didn't believe me at first. Just wanted to pop in and say hello to everyone :wavehello: I hope to get to know everyone and become as good of friends as I am with the other amazing women on my daughters birth board! I loved pregnancy the first time and am so excited to be having another. As far as telling people so far only Justin knows. His mom and step dad leave Wednesday for Arizona for 6 weeks and I can't wait that long to tell people....I especially can't keep it from my mom. So tomorrow we will be telling them, then this weekend we will be telling my family (I am hosting a baby shower this weekend for my sister who is due March 28) so it will be perfect opportunity to let them know. Justin made me wait a few weeks last time to tell, this time i'm not waiting Smile I am quite a rambler at times...so I apologize in advance Sorry 2 and no I still can't figure out how to resize pics in photobucket Sad

Here's my test from this afternoon (I went and got another EPT for tmrw morning also)

And this is how we will be telling our families (thank you to my other birth board for the idea)

My first pregnancy went well, routine dr appointments nothing special came up. My water broke at 2am and I labored at home till 830a we got to the hospital at 9am I got my epidural around 12-1p by 5p we were ready to start pushing. I pushed 3 times and when i'd push her heart rate would drop so we ended up in an emergency c-section because the dr had a hard time getting her heart rate back up the last time. Come to find out the cord was wrapped by her shoulders and her head was stuck on my bone so she wasn't going to go anywhere. That means this baby will be a c-section also. Something i'm not happy about but am ok with.

Tiffany-I do actually know where Burlington is, i've been over by there once. Your about a good 6 hrs away on opposite sides of the state but its nice to see someone else from Iowa.
Amber-I lurked on July and August 10' a lot also

I didn't really have bad morning sickness with my 1st some nausea but I was tired a lot. I thought last week something was up because I was ready for bed by 830 twice last week lol I've got some nausea this morning but i'm hoping the MS is just like with my first not bad and not often, i'm not so sure i'll get that lucky.

Are you going to try at all for a VBAC? Just because DD was a c-sec doesn't mean this LO has to be. Smile

I had an emergency c/s too and I'm definitely going to do some research on VBAC. I'm not 100% set either way right now, but the option is there. My BFF had VBAC TWINS in 2010. I figure if she can do it, maybe I can too :O)

Welcome to Oct 2012! LOVE LOVE LOVE your pic of you and your DD. She's smiling Biggrin

I also like your idea for announcing. Might have to steal it Dirol

That is good to know Sarah. One of my main concerns with a repeat c/s is recovery. It wasn't bad last time, but this time I'll have a 2.5 y/o and it kind of scares me Wink
