1. Your Name? Sarah (33)
2. Relationship Status? Married, celebrating 7th anniversary in Sept.
3. Other Children? Josiah (3), two angels in heaven
4. Was this pregnancy planned? If so, how many cycles to TTC? TTC since Oct. 2010, loss in May 2011, and Sept 2011. It took 5 cycles to get pregnant this time.
5. Do you work? If so, what do you do? I teach K-6 music for two hours a week at a homeschool center, have a private voice studio two nights a week, and am opening a Music Together Center in April (I'll just be teaching one class a week).
6. Number 1 thing on your "wishlist" in terms of baby gear? I'd like to sell my bassinet and get an Arm's Reach co-sleeper
7. Have you bought anything for baby? When I was pregnant with my first loss, I bought a beautiful sleep sack...I've been hanging onto it for when we get our rainbow baby
8. EDD? 10/24, but I'll most likely have a planned c/s slightly earlier.
9. Gender predictions/hopes? I have no CLUE what I'm having! I would love to have a little girl, but I can honestly say I will be entirely happy just to have a healthy baby, boy OR girl!
10. Biggest pregnancy/delivery fear? The recovery from c/s...I had a really rough delivery with Josiah and was in the hospital for 5 days, so I am fearful of another bad experience. Although, my OB and I already have some plans in place to avoid some of the problems I had before.

1. Your Name? Alex
2. Relationship Status? Married almost 10 years, together for almost 18.
3. Other Children? Rafi (2.5)
4. Was this pregnancy planned? Very planned. We got pregnant first cycle last June but had a missed miscarriage in August. Was pregnant first cycle post m/c in September but had another missed miscarriage in November. My body took a while to metabolize my super hCG numbers and then we tried in January and very luckily, and surprisingly, got pregnant again first time. I am hoping this is our rainbow baby.
5. Do you work? If so, what do you do? I'm a professor/chair of department at a university
6. Number 1 thing on your "wishlist" in terms of baby gear? Can't think of anything we didn't have for DS.. we do, though, have a ton of stuff we didn't end up using at all!!
7. Have you bought anything for baby? Much too nervous to buy anything yet.
8. EDD? October 11th.
9. Gender predictions/hopes? I don't have much intuition. I would like a girl but would be super happy with another boy. But I might try for a third if we have another boy
10. Biggest pregnancy/delivery fear? Oh, another miscarriage is really frightening.
