What's your name?
Well, online AnnaBonana. When I joined JM I wanted an alias but I see now everyone using real names! S maybe I'll change it.

How old are you?
29

How many pregnancies have you had?
2

Was this pregnancy planned or a surprise?
Planned. We had six month of TTC and one loss before this baby.

Do you have any pets?
Plenty! I have an elderly Beagle, DH has an enormous Sheppard, but he mostly stays at the farm. I have about thirty chickens, and DH has about 200 cows, LOL. Oh, and a barn cat named Howie. I found him last year.

Do you have a significant other?
My DH and I have been together for two years and married for ten months.

Where are you from/where do you live?
Ontario Canada. DH and I live on the same property he grew up on, and im about 15 miles away from where I grew up.

What is your job (if you have one)?
I'm an educational assistant, so I work with special needs kids within the school board. I'm a casual, though, so I go in as needed.

What is your SO's job (if they have one)?
DH is a dairy farmer. Unfortunately he is still in partnership with his mean, tyrannical father so that makes our lives very difficult. Hopefully over the next couple years we become independent and then our lives will be much easier!

Have you told your other child/children about the pregnancy yet? What was/were their reaction/s? (if applicable)
No other kids! We have told my mother, father, my brother's wife, and DH's brothers wife. Four more weeks and we will tell everyone.
