I'm excited & hopeful to be posting here!
I am due June 5th. This is my 17th pregnancy. I have 10dc (incl my step son). The dc range from age 28-2.5. Oh and I am 43.
I had a miscarriage this past spring... and am hoping this baby goes to term and I can hold him or her in my arms.
I have 8 boys and 2 girls and my youngest 4 are boys 8, 6, 4, and 2. They keep me busy.
I have home schooled for 18yrs now.
I extended nurse and tandem nurse at times. Currently my 2.5yos is still nursing.
We cloth diaper and I love my cloth lady pads too.
I am planning my 6th home birth and 8th VBAC.
I ALWAYS go post dates and most of my babies are over 10# and no I don't have GD... just grow them big.
We have a *homestead* and raise dairy goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, guineas, pigs, and rabbits... plus have 6 cats & 4 dogs. We have a big garden. I cook from scratch, can, and make cheese and yogurt. I am learning to knit & quilt.
I look forward to getting to know all of you as we progress through our pregnancies.
Right now I am a bit nervous... my m/c this past spring and the only symptoms I have so far are frequent urination, exhaustion, and falling asleep at 9PM... oh and no nausea yet... but becoming more jittery if I go too long without protein.
