2 week old london has grown from his 6lbs 10oz birth wt to 7lbs 14oz!!! WOW. He is a great baby...only twice has he cried for more then 30 seconds (during tests only!). He sleeps great and just seems to be a happy calm baby. We couldn't be more happy!

Doing okay here. My appointment with my midwife keeps getting delayed which is frustrating since I need to talk to her about money and I'm not looking forward to it! Hopefully today at 4 we'll actually HAVE that appointment!

my 2 year old is pretty much potty trained now (daytime) so woohoo!

Pregnancy is going well. I seem to get random episodes of spotting every 3-4 weeks throughout this pregnancy which is bizarre. Haven't figure out yet what is causing it...

We are good! My oldest who is 3 1/2 is going to preschool next month. I can't believe it! Time has flown by and I'm just in shock we're finally at the schooling part.

My home birth baby Dane is going to be 9 months on the 28th! He says mama, dada, he growls, clicks his tongue, he is crawling and starting to get the guts to want to walk. He has 6 teeth (2 on the bottom and 4 on top) and hes just so sweet and cuddly!

I'm doing okay. I'm 14 weeks and some days, so officially in the second trimester. WOOT!
The morning sickness has waned for the most part and the indigestion is kicking in, but nothing too big to worry about.
I have a midwife appointment scheduled for Monday and I can't wait. I really need to hear bean's heartbeat (I hate this inbetween time when symptoms are waning, but it's still to early to feel definitive/constant movement!).

Doing good... 17 weeks, no more m/s. Have a midwife appointment on the 28th.

My oldest starts kindergarten in a week and a half. And my other one is getting into the terrible two's but wants to potty train... It's interesting around here!

26 weeks! 27 on tuesday! So 3 days till bump is fully baked! I plan to have a home birth in our house truck, weve settled in one spot in a natunal park next to loch lomond.

Had a run in with an obstitrician who dosent seam to belive women can give birth naturally. So Ive told him where to go .

Midwifes will drop round teh birthing kit at 29 weeks, but will have it on stand by after tuesday and will bring it over asap when its needed! They even suply ground sheets and towels so I have little clearing up afterwards which i didnt know!

Lots being sick with heart burn, so Im out of bed most mornings at five! And lots of BH!


I am SO EXCITED

Got my unassisted homebirth - albeit unplanned! lol the story is over on natural childbirth if anyone is interested.

Arei Gracen is now 2 weeks old and is such a good little guy! BFing perfectly and after his first appt. at just a few days old, the doc said he didn't need to see us again until 2 months. Yay! I may take him in at 1 month just to make sure he's gaining okay and all that, but I may not.

I'm doing great! Been feeling awesome since about 2 days PP. I just wish the bleeding would stop, then I'd be totally back to normal!

The twins went back to school on the 13th. They are enjoying 1st grade.

Reicher is adapting well to Arei. He gives him kisses and tries to poke his eyes (not trying to be mean, he just likes to point the parts of his face and tell me their names lol).

We have three birthdays coming up, so we're getting ready for those. All in all, life is good.

i'm here too! both of my kiddos are in the middle of chicken pox so that's been a big hurdle that we aren't quite over yet. i'm due in 9 days so i'm just waddling around waiting for baby to come. i'm nervous about the labor even though this is my 3rd home birth but so excited to find out if this baby is a boy or girl! hopefully soon!

25 weeks here and doing great. Starting to get a few of the normal aches and pains of pregnancy but besides that I can't complain.
My daughter is almost 20 months now....I can't believe it. She is talking up a storm and the potty learning is in full force now. Hoping that she'll have the hang of it before baby #2 comes along in about 3 months.

I'm here, sorta. We just moved last week, so things are so crazy and hectic. I don't think I've sat down for more than 5 minutes at a time for the past week. The girls are doing well, Lily starts K in two weeks, and Julia starts preschool as well. Kate is about 16 months now, she's trouble, j/k... she wants to be just like her older sisters and do everything they can do, its too cute!
