  • Hello Mamas!!

     -What's your due date?

    When we went to our first appointment in Kaiser Woodland Hills the nurse told us we should expect on JANUARY 7TH 2017

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?

    My husband and I tried for over a year with one miscarriage in November 2015

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?

    First baby!! 

    - Tell us a little about yourself!

    I moved to Los Angeles from Toronto, Canada for my husband. We enjoy hiking, going to the gym and traveling. 

    I love yoga, meditation and the reminder of living in the present moment. 

    We hope for a natural birth and comprismised to have the assistance of a Doula if we must delivery in the hospital at Kaiser.

    Any other mama's delivering in Kaiser? Hoping for a natural delivery?

    Welcome to CA! I hope you're enjoying it so far. I delivered my DD at Kaiser up in NorCal and had a good experience. While I did go the epidural route, they are pretty respectful of your choices and they will have you fill out a birth plan form when we get closer to our due dates (one to keep and one for them on file). If I remember correctly, they offer different classes on types of birth so you can get a better idea of what to expect.

    I'm 20 years old,  going to college online full time and working at a library part time. My boyfriend/father of the child is 21 and we've only been dating for 2 weeks. (Yes, and I'm 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant.) I'm a little anxious about how this is going to work out,  but I know it will because I will do everything I can for my child. Excited to go through this process and looking forward to doing it with all of you!

    - What's your due date? January 4th


    - How long were you trying (if you were)? We weren't I find myself in that select 1%!


    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    I have 4 boys all together, ages 7, 6 (my step son), 5 year old and a 10 month old.


    - Tell us a little about yourself! I am a mom of 4 going on 5! Currently I have all wonderful boys! I am 28 years old and currently working as a recruiter for a staffing company. My DH is 29 and is a computer programmer. I must admit when I found out I was pregnant I was a little scared ( to be honest terrified!) My youngest just turned 10 months and monopolizes all my free time! To be honest I deffinelty enjoy all the extra snuggles, just unsure of how I am going to be able to balance a newborn and mama's little sidekick!

    I'm almost 27 years old and a formulation chemist. My boyfriend stays at home with our LO currently and runs a contracting business during the day and works at the airport during the evening. My last pregnancy was a little hectic due to multiple high risk factors (unplanned, lupus, elevated liver enzymes, antiphospholipid syndrome, baby has a critical CHD (Congenital heart defect), preterm delivery...) so I'm hoping this one goes a little more smoothly!

    - What's your due date?
    1/5/2017 but I haven't had my 1st ob/gyn appointment yet so it could change

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    The hubs and I weren't trying but we weren't preventing either. Being in our early 30's, we didn't want to wait too long to start having a family but we didn't want to stress about it either. We stopped birth control in October of 2015 and found out we were pregnant a few weeks ago.

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    This will be our first, minus our 4-legged child

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    32 years. Reside in SC. I work for a small local IT company. My husband is a recruiter/sales in the trades industry. We enjoy being outdoors doing dirt bike riding (that has subsided now) and also trail running. It's been a little hard to continue to be active as I've been dealing with the 1st trimester symptoms, mainly exhaustion, but determined to keep going as I want to be sure to remain as healthy as possible. Everything has been and will be new to us but we are excited for the journey!

  • - What's your due date?
      I am due on Jan 10th which is actually my first child's birthday

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
     We stopped preventing in January.. so 4 months. 

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
     This will be our second, we have one daughter and we had to do IVF to get her so this pregnancy was a shock.

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I'm 35 yrs old, from Ontario Canada, I am an Order Desk clerk at a Paper goods supply company.  I've been married since May 2009.

  • - What's your due date?
     January 4. According to my most recent US and LMP.
    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
        
    almost 18 months
    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
         
    first. Unless we have a 2nd hiding! 
    - Tell us a little about yourself!
         
    I'm 26 years old from NJ and got married to my husband almost 1 year ago. We had a MC very shortly after our wedding and found out I had a pretty large uterine septum. It was removed last summer, and after trying another 6 months, went for further testing and had my HSG which I think cleared the "cobwebs" and we got preggers the same month! I'm crazy nervous, as we all can be. But trying get to stay positive!

    - How long were you trying (if you were)?
    We technically were not, but we are super super excited.

    - Is this your first child/do you have any other children?
    I have a 2yo DD who is spunky and strong willed and absolutely amazing. A cat named Cooper, a jack russel named Fenway, and a fish that DD named Poopie. 

    - Tell us a little about yourself!
    I'm 27 and my DH is 43. We've been married going on 3 years, together going on 8. I always trolled on my last BMB and am kinda excited I get to be involved with this one from the beginning. I work full time at a hospital as the supervisor of a service department, and that can be kinda stressful. I am really hoping that I can stay active and eat well this pregnancy, because it took me forever to lose the baby weight last time and feel comfortable. 
    YAY Jan 2017!
