I know it's been asked before, but there are so many new people now, I thought I'd ask again.

When is your due date/how many weeks are you?
What number baby is this for you?
Were you trying or is this a surprise baby?
If you were trying, for how long?
Are you team pink, blue, green, or don't know yet?
Are you carrying higher or lower (based on baby location in ultrasounds and general appearance)?
What are you craving currently and what has been your craziest craving so far?
Are you planning a home birth, birth center, or hospital birth?
How many of the above births have you experienced before and which was the best experience?
Random fact about your pregnancy?


When is your due date/how many weeks are you? August 15th. I am 14 weeks 4 days.
What number baby is this for you? This is our first baby.
Were you trying or is this a surprise baby? Trying.
If you were trying, for how long? Since October 2011 (with a 2 months break in the middle).
Are you team pink, blue, green, or don't know yet? TEAM BLUE! Go little Kieran!
Are you carrying higher or lower (based on baby location in ultrasounds and general appearance)? The ultrasound tech said I was carrying very low.
What are you craving currently and what has been your craziest craving so far? Pretty much any melon. Yum! So far nothing too crazy. It's mostly veggies and fruit.
Are you planning a home birth, birth center, or hospital birth? Home birth, though honestly, sometimes it scares me a little. Possibilities of something going wrong etc.
How many of the above births have you experienced before and which was the best experience? None.
Random fact about your pregnancy? I've had almost no symptoms the whole 14 weeks!

What number baby is this for you?3
Were you trying or is this a surprise baby?Surprise
If you were trying, for how long?
Are you team pink, blue, green, or don't know yet?No sway one gender over the other.
Are you carrying higher or lower (based on baby location in ultrasounds and general appearance)?Baby is way down in my pelvic bone still. I can suck in my belly and not have one still.
What are you craving currently and what has been your craziest craving so far?All I crave is steak and red meat. Craziest craving was girl scout cookies and tomato juice

How many of the above births have you experienced before and which was the best experience?Both previous births were in the hospital. Both had their good and bad points to it. The second one my mom got to be there for the birth which was amazing for her since she's non-ambulatory and can't walk. With my son she was on the phone for the whole thing.

When is your due date/how many weeks are you? August 25th, I'm 13.1 weeks
What number baby is this for you? Technically baby #9, but hopefully bringing home baby #5.
Were you trying or is this a surprise baby? well trying, but really surprised, long story but long history of infertility and JUST had a miscarriage in November.
If you were trying, for how long? got pregnant 16 days after my miscarriage at 7 weeks and 1 day.
Are you team pink, blue, green, or don't know yet? don't know yet.
Are you carrying higher or lower (based on baby location in ultrasounds and general appearance)? low I guess, I've carried all of my babies low.
What are you craving currently and what has been your craziest craving so far? lobster, nothing too crazy.
Are you planning a home birth, birth center, or hospital birth? hospital, but would love a home birth or even a birth center, but not an option here and with it being #5, can't drive the 5 hours for the nearest birthing center.
How many of the above births have you experienced before and which was the best experience? I loved my labors with all of them, #1 even though I was induced, I felt so empowered that I DID it! #2 I was so numb I couldn't feel anything and hated it but I pushed once and his head was out and then a half a push and his body was out. Easy delivery, recovery from the epdiural was horrendous. #3 was scary because he was early, but it was a good experience, aside from them not communicating or letting me leave the bed. #4 was awesome (med free), got to labor and push in the position I wanted and no pain until right before I started pushing, but then the placenta abrupted right before he was born and he was purple and not breathing and the clots I had were outrageous in size. VERY scary. I was thankful I switched doctors and hospitals at 28 weeks and that I didn't drive the 85+ miles to the bigger hospital otherwise I wouldn't have known I was in labor until it was too late (when it hurt, he was born 15-20 mins later) and we wouldn't have made it to the hospital. I possibly could have lost him or died myself with how much blood I lost..
Random fact about your pregnancy? I found out I was pregnant with this baby on my birthday!

Are you planning a home birth, birth center, or hospital birth? Hospital
How many of the above births have you experienced before and which was the best experience? One hospital birth, a scheduled c-section. I have a heart condition that started giving me alot of issues, my heart nearly stopped at 36 weeks which pushed my cardiologist to say it would not be safe for myself to labor nautrally. This time around we are inbetween VBAC and RCS. I am not being "forced" to a RCS but am trying to be reasonable to the fact that those incidents with my heart are totally random with no warning and could potentially endanger our lives more than necessary.
Random fact about your pregnancy? Hmmmm, this pregnancy has made me SO emotional. I am a raging lunatic sometimes!
