Re: October 2012 introductions :)

Name?: Amber

Children?: 2 boys, Mason & Isaac

Occupation?: SAHM for almost 3 years now

Favorite color?: Blue

Favorite food?: Chocolate. Pizza. Cheese (which is unfortunate because I'm lactose intolerant lol)

Hobbies?: Surfing the interwebs, watching obscene amounts of tv, reading

Number of months TTC?: NTNP for about a year, actively TTC since Aug

How many babies do you want?: Baby #3 will be our last, I always wanted 4 but DH only wanted 2 so we met in the middle

Type of birth planned?: Hospital birth, hoping for a second VBAC

Anything else you want to share?: I am unfortunately not at all excited about this pg, even though it was planned, I'm just too worried and stressed out about having another m/c to enjoy any of it or even entertain the thought that I will end up actually having a baby in Oct. I also desperately and irrationally want a girl. I love my little men more than anything, and wouldn't trade them for all the girls in the world, but theres this part of me that wants a daughter more than I can even express. I don't understand why I want one so bad, but I do, I was bummed when I found out DS1 was a boy and I was literally depressed when I found out DS2 was another boy. So since this will be our last I am hoping against hope that I will finally get a pink bundle.

Re: October 2012 introductions :)

Name?: Cindy

Children?: 1 daughter, Makenna, who just turned 3 at the end of Jan.

Occupation?: SAHM since my daughter's birth. I worked in investment banking prior to that.

Favorite color?: Today it's green

Favorite food?: Chocolate and cupcakes (preferably chocolate). Major sweet tooth!

Hobbies?: Reading, yoga, going on walks, spending way too much time online

Number of months TTC?: We have been trying for #2 for almost 2 yrs! In that time I've had a chemical, a 10 week miscarriage and gone through oodles of fertility treatments. We finally did IVF to get this one!

How many babies do you want?: I thought maybe I wanted 3 but I know that after we finally have a take home baby, we won't be putting ourselves through this again.

Type of birth planned?: I can't decide. I had my daugher in the water at a birth center. I was so set on having a homebirth for #2. But having spent 15k on fertility treatments, I am not sure I want to spend 5k on a homebirth when I can have a hospital birth covered 100%. I have decided I will wait until the 2nd tri to decide. I had just picked out a midwife when I had my miscarriage.

Anything else you want to share?: I am really super scared to jump into a due date club for fear of jinxing myself. But I told myself I want to celebrate this pregnancy every day and try not to worry. I had no reason to worry last time yet I worried and worried until something bad finally did happen. I am not happy to hear of so many others that have suffered miscarriages too, but it makes me feel more ok going ahead and introducing myself!

Re: October 2012 introductions :)

Name?: Erica

Children?: 4

Occupation?: SAHM

Favorite color?: Gray

Favorite food?: Beef, Mexican

Hobbies?: I love to read, but that's about it.

Number of months TTC?: I got pregnant on our first IVF attempt

How many babies do you want?: 4 of my own, but I may do another surrogacy - we'll see how this one goes.

Type of birth planned?: Not sure yet.

Anything else you want to share?: The baby I'm carrying is not my baby. I'm a surrogate for a couple who are unable to have children on their own. Oh, and we already know that the baby is a boy because we did PGD testing on the embryo to rule out genetic abnormalities.

Re: October 2012 introductions :)

Name?: Catie

Occupation?: Health Enthuisist @ Vitamin Shoppe

Favorite color?: Blue & White

Favorite food?: ummmm, hard to say as of now because I am in super craving mode but Italian foods are the best!

How many babies do you want?: 2 this is our last one!

Type of birth planned?: I really am planning on a natural birth at a birthing center. FX that my pregnancy goes uncomplecated with this little one.

I was healthy with her but I gained 60lbs and I don't even intend on gaining 30 with this one because I have retained a lot of weight from my last pregnancy. Just a warning once I start to show i tend to take pictures galore of my progress each week! LOL

Glad to be here with you fine ladies!

Did I mention that I am scared?
