Just out of curiosity...

Other than your DH, who will be the first person you tell about your BFP?

Will you use a OB/GYN or a midwife for delivery?

Are you planning a home birth or a hospital birth?

Breast or bottle feed?

Cloth or disposable diapers?

Stay at home Mom or working Mommy?

Will you use a OB/GYN or a midwife for delivery? OB/GYN, I love mine...she is so so so sweet and she is only 32...just like a year older than me!

Are you planning a home birth or a hospital birth? Hospital all the way, I am a nurse, so I get nervous about all of the risks.

Breast or bottle feed? Breast for as long as possible, hopefully like a year.

Cloth or disposable diapers? Disposable

My best friend Riya. She and her hubby are trying for their first one before he leaves for Iraq as well....

Will you use a OB/GYN or a midwife for delivery?
Probably midwife..

Hospital birth, definitely, since this is a first. My hips are aligned weird, and if something goes wrong, I want to have immediate access to emergency care.

Breast!

Cloth or disposable diapers?
I'd like to say cloth, but we'll see what happens...

Stay at home Mom or working Mommy?
Working at first, but I plan on it only being part-time..

Other than your DH, who will be the first person you tell about your BFP? Probably my mom.

Will you use a OB/GYN or a midwife for delivery? I want to use a midwife.. but I have to find one that takes Tricare.

Are you planning a home birth or a hospital birth? I'd like to give birth at a birthing center. I believe you can't give birth in base housing (I could be wrong I'm not really sure) and I'm kind of hesitant about giving birth in a hospital.

Breast or bottle feed? breast, for as long as I can.

Cloth or disposable diapers? completely cloth. We're pretty "crunchy" and I've researched to much about disposables to ever want to use them. Plus cloth is so much different then it used to be and its really cute now... For example I just bought this diaper last week:


Stay at home Mom or working Mommy? Stay at home until both of them (we want two) are in school full time.

Other than your DH, who will be the first person you tell about your BFP? My sister or my mom. I'm not sure which. Probably whichever I can get a hold of first.

Will you use a OB/GYN or a midwife for delivery? OB/GYN

Are you planning a home birth or a hospital birth? Hospital

Breast or bottle feed? Breast, but I plan on pumping as well so others can feed the baby and so I have the option to leave the child with a sitter for more than a short time if necessary

Cloth or disposable diapers? Disposable at first. I would like to switch to cloth once the baby is a month or two.

Stay at home Mom or working Mommy? I would love to stay at home or work only part time. We've already decided there's no way we've both keeping our current jobs when we have kids. Our schedules are too unpredictable and I don't want to be absentee parents.

Because I recently had a loss, I am going to wait a long time to tell anyone. But I think I will tell my best friend before I tell anyone in my family.

Will you use a OB/GYN or a midwife for delivery?
OB/GYN, I love the guy, he's great

Are you planning a home birth or a hospital birth?
Hospital

Disposable, although slightly entertaining using some cloth. Need to research more, I don't know anyone who ever used cloth so I know nothing about them.

Other than your DH, who will be the first person you tell about your BFP? Whoever I see first in person or online

Will you use a OB/GYN or a midwife for delivery? I'm not sure which my insurance covers... if ins covers midwife, I'd go for it.. if not Ob/gyn will do.

Are you planning a home birth or a hospital birth? Hospital birth. I'm so afraid to do homebirth for FIRST time. But I'm not opposed to home birth. Maybe for my 2nd, or 3rd or so I'd do it if I am familar with birth process at first time.

Breast or bottle feed? BREAST ALL THE WAY!

Cloth or disposable diapers? Both. Cloth for regular. Disposable for traveling.

Stay at home Mom or working Mommy? SAHM

Probably my friend Carrie - she's one of 2 people who knows that we are trying.

I'll go to an OBGYN, but will also meet a midwife. I want to explore all options (but midwives are expensive)

Are you planning a home birth or a hospital birth?
Hospital

Breast or bottle feed?
I will try the breast - but they are so sensitive - so I may end up using bottles.

Cloth or disposable diapers?
Cloth

Stay at home Mom or working Mommy?
Will stay at home for maternity leave (1 year), will most likely return part time (a lot depends on if we can find child care)
