When did you find out you were pregnant?
I do not remember the date. But it was a Thursday. I went home early I was so tired.

Was it planned?
Yes&&No.

What was your first reaction?
I was shocked. I didn't believe it.

Who was with you when you found out?
Nobody.

Who was the first person you told?
My best friend.

How far along are you?
14 weeks 3 days.

What is your due date?
January 2, 2012

Do you know the sex of the baby? If so, what is it?
No. I hope its a girl though.

Have you picked out a name?
Yes.

Who will be in the delivery room with you?
DF for sure. Hopefully my mom and if they let three people in my best friend. But im not sure because we are due around the same time. I mean it would be cool if we had our babies on the same day but it would suck cause we wouldnt be able to be there for each other.

Do you think you will cry when you hold the baby for the first time?
I'm pretty sure I know I will.

Are you excited about the birth, or scared?
I am scared.

When did you find out you were pregnant?
April 21st. I was 7 dpo and it was in the afternoon so I thought I was seeing things. I got a blood test the next day and it said 0 hcg! I told them it was wrong and I was pregnant. Sure enough I was lol.

Was it planned?
Yes but we didn't think it would happen so quickly. I told Jay it would take a few months so if we wanted a spring baby we needed to start trying asap lol.

What was your first reaction?
Excited

Who was with you when you found out?
Nobody.

Who was the first person you told?
Jason

How far along are you?
14 weeks 1 days

No we thought it was a boy but the other techs said it actually doesn't look like a boy. That it was the nub not a penis and not to start buying blue yet.

Have you picked out a name?
Yes.

Who will be in the delivery room with you?
My Df will be there and I planned on his mom but now I'm not so sure. She may be the one staying with our son.

I did with Tyler I'm sure I will this time too.

Excited now that I know what to expect.

I cried actually. I'd always wanted to have kids but my relationship with DB was still so new and I really didn't know how he'd react.

Who was with you when you found out?
After I peed on the stick I told DB what I was doing and we stood outside the bathroom, holding each other while the three minutes passed.

Who was the first person you told?
DB's sister that is living with us for the summer

Do you know the sex of the baby? If so, what is it?

Yes, for a girl! For a boy we have the middle name but we're still talking about the first name

Who will be in the delivery room with you?
DB and the midwife and her assistant.

Do you think you will cry when you hold the baby for the first time?
[B]Definitely, I'm a total leaker! [B]

Are you excited about the birth, or scared?
I'm scared but really excited too. Most of my fear is that I won't get close to the birth I want.

Yes

What was your first reaction?
Shock!! I said, "holy sh*t!" I really thought we'd missed the window that month. Lol!

Terrified!!! My Mom's side of the family have all had really speedy deliveries so I'm really scared there won't be time for an epidural.

When did you find out you were pregnant? May 5th. I bought a test after being 8 days late. It was on the day of the "Cap and Gown Countdown" for graduation.


Was it planned?
Not in the slightest. Had an IUD in place.

What was your first reaction?
I cried and cried. Every time I thought about it I cried. DEVASTATION!

Who was with you when you found out?
My SO was in the next room...I called him in in a panic. My kids followed him if that counts!

Who was the first person you told?
My SO, then my mom.

How far along are you?
14 weeks 1 day

What is your due date?
January 5th, 2012

Do you know the sex of the baby? If so, what is it?
No. I think girl. We find out in a little over 4 weeks.

Have you picked out a name?
No, I figure you don't go to the pet store to pick out an animal with a name in mind so why should you before seeing your child. We have an ever evolving list.

Who will be in the delivery room with you?
Any one I want! I will be at the birth center so likely it will be my SO, the kids, my mom, and maybe one of my sisters.

Do you think you will cry when you hold the baby for the first time?
I have not for either of the others so I doubt it. It is more surprise, wonderment, joy, and curiosity for me than an occasion to cry.

Are you excited about the birth, or scared?
I can't wait! I am anxious because I have some work working through some negative thoughts from my son's birth but overall I look forward to the birth as a challenge and since this is my last I look forward to it.
