Roll Call


Re: Roll Call

  • However currently working full time for Lush cosmetics (wanted a bit of a break from kitchens, however I now find myself missing them greatly).

    I worked for Lush as a second job for a couple years and quit when I became pregnant as one job was enough to handle!! Sounds like you'd have fun working in the lush kitchen!!
  • Eva-Born 12/28 EDD 1/11
    I live in Northern VA.
    I'm a FTM and just took a new title as SAHM...I was an Executive Assistant for the past 3 years. Would love to get pregnant again ASAP for baby #2 (I'm already 32 so time is not on my side) and most likely that will be our last.

    Funny you say that! I actually applied a few years ago to an MIT position for the fresh room in Vancouver. I did really well sadly they didn't know how to get around the us citizen working in Canada thing and they needed to fill the position. I've been there going on 4 years this July. (Wish pay was a little better) 
    hopefully you stocked up before you left for pregnancy stuff! Or at least get a little love still from a friend in the shop. I know I'll cry the day my discount is gone.

    Callum Alexander :) born 29/12/2015 edd 03/01/2016. 

    Started on the trying to get pregnant board and stuck around ever since even though baby was born in dec. The Jan 2016 board has gotten me through the fears of being pregnant for the first time and a difficult delivery via c-section and post partum. Thanks ladies!

    ftm from vancouver Canada. Art teacher/therapist.

    im not sure about more babies (can't even go there yet).  I'm surprised to see there are 2 other baby Violets on this board.  I had no idea it was a popular name!

    Veda Oaklynn- born 1/16 EDD 1/20
    FTM. my husband and I are from WI but recently moved to TX last May. I'm a dental hygienist and he works in management. I've been a lurker since joining the bump but you ladies have gotten me through and kept me sane during my pregnancy and this post partum time. As many have said, I especially love reading this board during late night feedings
  • @melturz too funny! Popular name up here I guess! (Although you're the only other person in this state that I've heard the name.) 

    I'm in Fond du Lac! Where are you at?

    Allyson, born 1/12 on her EDD. I'm a FTM.
    We live outside Atlanta, Georgia. 
    I am a student affairs manager and adjunct instructor for first year seminars at a college. 
    I am mostly a lurker but really enjoyed this board throughout pregnancy. I do hope to maybe write in a little more now that LO is here!
  • Juliet, born 1/29 via unplanned c-section. I'm a born and raised Vancouver Island (British Columbia) girl and I plan the same for this LO.

    I also have a 12 year old stepson who lives with us full time (his mom isn't really in the picture.) But I didn't know him until he was 9 so I'm really looking forward to experiencing the younger years with DD. 

    My fiance is 10 years older than me and fast approaching 40, so this is likely to be our one and only child together.
