I love the pregnology tickers. I did have to alter my due date on that site though to match fertility friend's though which was weird.

I love that you started a thread on here to get people involved. I was thinking about doing the old daily type threads from our other board to stir up posts.

Sorry for being brief. I gotta make dinner, and I'm stalling ^_^

Names: they're all in my signature. I'm 32, DH's 33. Ages of kids are 7, 4, and 2, respectively

Location: California

Occupation: Stay-at-home Navy wife, teacher to my own children

Due date: nothing official, but my own gesstimate is June 14th

How's pregnancy treating me: So far, nothing bad. I hardly notice any changes at all, besides being a bit tired toward the second half of the day, and actually sleeping in now (woo hoo! I can sleep!)

Favorite thing about the fall season: ... I don't know. I like seasons in general, just because they exist. I like the sense of time moving and change happening. I guess for fall, that'd make it the changing leaf color.

What are we gonna be for Halloween: Haven't the faintest idea, but the kids want to be ninja turtles. I'll probably throw on a cape and call myself a sorceress.

Favorite Vacation Spot: Wherever extended family happens to be at. I don't think I've ever had a regular vacation experience where we go somewhere that DOESN'T have family to visit.

Favorite thing to do on the weekend: ... now, what do I do on Saturday that I don't do on the other days? ... argh, too much thinking involved. But on Sundays I like going to church and doing my genealogy.

Hobbies: Politics, knitting, learning stuff

Favorite TV show: I don't have cable. I guess maybe Phineas and Ferb.

Favorite baby-preparing thing: Coming up with the name. Actually, that's already been done (my husband and I enjoy creating names for future potential kids, and we've already decided what our next boy and girl names are going to be). I like exercising and doing the hypnobaby stuff to prepare for the birth.

Anything else I want to share: I hope that hubby isn't deployed when baby comes.
