About Me

From Vancouver Island, BC, Canada
27 years old
Married Hubby Brent: July 25, 2009
2 Stepsons, 5 and 10 years old
Pregnant with my first, gender a surprise :)

My Birth Plan

I'm using a midwife but will have a hospital birth. My preference is to not have an epidural but am open to laughing gas and maybe some other pain relief, if needed depending how things go. Hoping for less than an hour of pushing - time to put these child bearin' hips to work :) I am a big beleiver in the fear-pain cycle and am gonig to focus on inner strength and confidence to trust my body!

Hey Shanny!
I hardly ever come on here anymore!
Things are going well! I am having a lot of trouble with my restless legs though, i have had only 3 hrs sleep in 48 hours!!! I AM exhausted!!!
We found out we are having a girl! :D I am so excited!
Little Leto is almost walking! Hes only 9 months!!!

How are you??? Are you back at work?

i'm doing alright. been getting into a pretty good routine. owen gets up once a night to eat and that's it. he's been teething and rolling over a ton! also working on sitting up alone. i've been feeling the baby itch again but i know its not a good time. as hubby and i discussed no more.

Thanks for your support shanny. It was a month yesterday that i gave birth to lil Ava and in some ways its getting a little easier other ways its so much harder. We were told we could start trying for a little brother or sister in 3 cycles, so while im still waitiing for my first one, we plan to as soon as we can. My arms are so empty and i know ill never replace her but id love to actually bring a live baby home one that kicks and screams! I hope your lil man is doing well and growing up nice strong and healthy! :)
