Pregnant with baby #1, due early August, think I'm about 26 weeks now.
We're planning a home waterbirth. We're excited, scared, nervous...all the normal new parent jitters.

Name: Shanna
Children's Names: Lizzie and Jessiah
Were they hospital births? Born at home? Attempted to be born at home? Both were hospital births
What is your status? TTC? Pregnant? WTTC or done? Pregnant
Pregnant ladies, how far along are you and how are the homebirth plans coming? 22 (almost 23) weeks pregnant. Plans are going good. I hired a wonderful doula last week and I am so excited to work with her. She is an amazing woman, not to mention she also works as a birth assistant for my midwife (just won't during my labor) which means during my birth, I will technically have my midwife plus 3 B.A.'s present. Which has made everyone around me even more relaxed about my homebirth plans just in case something goes wrong.

What's new in life? We found out recently that dh will be deploying next month and it is going to very close if he will make it home for the birth. If baby comes before 39 weeks he shouldn't be here, if baby comes 39 weeks it is a 50/50 shot that he will be here, if baby comes 40 weeks or later he should be here!

I haven't been very active on this board, but have been lurking since my baby was about three months old (I was active while pregnant and when she was teeny though!)

Name: Jess
Children's Names: Jonah and Evelyn (Evie)
Were they hospital births? Born at home? Attempted to be born at home? Jonah was a hospital birth, induction, typical hospital ride. Evie was born at home. I want any future babies to be born at home, but we are not sure if that's a possibility at this point :( It breaks my heart
What is your status? TTC? Pregnant? WTTC or done? I want to TTC, but DH says he is done. We're thinking about adopting even though we both really want to be pregnant again. DH is a carrier of a genetic disorder, and any babies we have will have a 50% chance of having it- it causes severe heart defects and other life threatening conditions. It scares both of us. We didn't know he was a carrier until after Eve was born. She is healthy, our older boy it turns out has it and it is what has caused all of his medical problems :(


What's new in life? Not much... Eve is starting to walk and talk. She asked me to "help" her yesterday, which was a hoot. Planting our gardens, if the rain ever lets up.

Post a pic of your kid/s!!

Here's Eve, my home birth baby. I can't believe it was almost eleven months ago! Wow...

Name: Melissa
Children's Names: I'm pregnant with our first, and we're on team green. If it's a boy we're naming him Cassius, and if it's a girl we're naming her Violet.
Were they hospital births? Born at home? Attempted to be born at home? We're planning a midwife-attended home birth.
What is your status? TTC? Pregnant? WTTC or done? Pregnant, with an EDD of Oct. 3rd.
Pregnant ladies, how far along are you and how are the homebirth plans coming? I'm 23 weeks tomorrow. I've been seeing 2 midwives (who work together) since I was 5 weeks pregnant, and absolutely LOVE them. I was diagnosed with marginal anterior placenta previa at 15 weeks, and my status was upgraded to a low-lying placenta, so we're just keeping our fingers crossed that it keeps moving to enable me to have the home birth that we've been planning.

Pregnant ladies, how far along are you and how are the homebirth plans coming? We are in the beginning stages of planning our homebirth. My midwife will be my only prenatal care provider and we've only met with her once (have another appointment coming up later this month). I'm only about 6 weeks along right now so we're still wrapping our heads around the fact that I'm pregnant :)
