About MeThis is my second pregnancy. I had a miscarriage last year at nearly 12 weeks on May 21st, 2012 that took me about 2 years to conceive.
Now I am having a baby with my fiance whom I love very much. It took us only a month to conceive! Of course I am very worried that I may lose this baby, but I am hanging in there.
I plan to breastfeed, and if the baby can't latch on properly, I will use nipple shields, and if that doesn't work I'll pump the milk with a breast pump. The only reason I will not breastfeed is if my doctor tells me that I cannot (I take anti-depressants, so far I am okay'ed for nursing). We have a strong feeling that it's a girl, but all we want is a healthy, living baby.
I want 2-3 kids. After this baby, I plan on finishing school and starting my career. Once that is done and we have a house and a car, and we are married, I plan on having 2 more children close together (1-2 years apart, maximum 3).
Our children will be raised to be open-minded and that all humans are created equal. It doesn't matter if you are Jewish, white, black, hispanic, asian, native american, woman, man, transgender, gay, lesbian, bisexual, straight, muslim, poor, middle-class, rich....we are ALL born with equal rights.

My Birth PlanIf the pain is too much for me to handle, I am going to get an epidural, unless I am having a c-section, in which case I will get a spinal block. My miscarriage was waaaay too painful and I have no reason to go through that much pain when relief is available. My birth, my choice.
I plan on giving birth at the hospital near where I live. I want my boyfriend, the baby's father, to be with me, and if possible, my mother, father and brother. A few friends would be nice as well, but worse case they can come after the baby's born when they have time.
I'm going to try sitting up and squatting to give birth, sitting up with knees bent, birthing chair, whatever it takes. I know walking helps a lot to keep things moving.
Religious needs? Be as gentle to my baby as possible, I don't like the whole "violent birth" thing. Also, if something goes wrong, stabilize my baby before you stabilize me (unless the baby cannot be saved). We all agree that I get to hold the baby first.
