  • - EDD (Estimated Due Date) June 6, but I've never managed to make it all the way to 40 weeks.
    - How you found out 
    Apparently was in super denial, and after a kidney stone and half marathon experience (unluckily together) and still nursing, I thought my period was just late. Up to a week late isn't weird for me when nursing. Suddenly realized it was almost two weeks late and I had to pee overnight. Due to sick kids, dumb stores, etc, took another 3 days to even get a test, that I was convinced I didn't need. I was already planning a gyno appointment to check on why I had no period....nope, BFP -showed up super dark before the control line appeared. Surprise!

    SAHM I love to read and run and ride horses. I'm also an ICAN leader, huge VBAC advocate, and in a very slow training to be a Certified Professional Midwife

    Husband of 4.5 years, a 3.5 year old son, an almost 15 month old daughter, a 10 year old 10 lbs miniature dachshund, and a 2 year old 80 lbs pitbull. It's busy around here.
    - Anything you’d like us to know 🙂
    I fall on the Autism Spectrum, sometimes struggle with mental health, cloth diaper, nurse babies for a long time, and home birth. My first was a case of traumatic birth abuse (I only share story upon request, way too much TW) so I had my second at home in a portable birth tub. My son likes to wear dresses and nail polish, and I have pretty substantial SPD to the point of barely being able to carry my toddler up our stairs anymore already. Oh, and I'm queer.

    I'm outspoken and opinionated, but value other's opinions and differences. I'm hoping I can jump in here and join the party!

    Also, please call me out if I'm being unintentionally rude!

  • @pourmeanothermocktail welcome! I used to ride as well but life is lifey and I cannot seem to get back into riding again. I think you will find us to be pretty laid back, may I ask what is the ICAN? Where are you doing your midwife training that is really cool!

    I can't ride anymore, but I miss it like crazy. Between finances and busted up pelvis that never fully healed, it's just not in my cards. Sad, been riding since I was 8. ICAN is International Cesarean Awareness Network-for educating about c sections and VBACs. 

    Right now I'm doing a super informal midwifery training because free, but hopefully when this baby is about 2 I can start formal training. I want to attend home births.

  • Hello! FTM at 34. EDD is 5/27/20. We had been trying for 9 months when we got pregnant this time, but had an early loss a few months before. Married to the best guy and have a cat who is NOT going to be happy when a baby comes in the door  :D . I like unique names that you don't hear everywhere but I'm also kind of stumped on names. We are not finding out the sex of the baby before the birth.

  • @mamabird515 Congrats! I'm planning home birth number 2, getting my anatomy scan this week to make sure baby and placenta are healthy and placenta is in a good position to do final clearance!

  • - EDD
    May 12, 2020
    - How you found out 
    I had just come off of my birth control after having our first child (DD) and didn't expect to conceive so quickly! It took us 5 months to get pregnant with DD after coming off of the pill, and this time around it happened on the first try. DD will be 17 months when this baby is born, so we are anxious and excited to have 2 under 2!

    I am an admin for the county planning department where I live, I love to watch TV and hang out with friends

    Married to husband for almost 3 years, DD turned 1 in December 2019, and we have a 65lb lab/husky mix as well as a 12 year old calico kitty cat!

    I am really nervous about relying on my partner for labor and delivery this time around because the first time it felt like he made everything about him and what he wanted (he threw a fit when they asked him to sit while performing my epidural, he thought there were too many people in the delivery room during pushing so he just stood in the corner and I felt pretty abandoned).
