    8. Do you have any names picked out???- Desmond or Eleanor, I think.

    1. 35, will be 36 at the birth
    2. This is my first.
    3. Ended up not using NW because my Dr office would only work with certain banks.
    4. Scorpio
    5. Hospital, but only because that's what my insurance will cover. Plan to do Bradley Method natural childbirth.
    6. Breastfeeding. Why buy formula when I have free food in my boobies?
    7. Cloth. I know people are going to bring disposables to my shower, and I'll use them, but I will not buy disposables.
    8. Boy name: Nathan Charles. Girl name: it WAS Charlotte, but that has turned up on the top 25 list, so now we are back at square one.
    9. I will ha e an extensive birth plan, and I realize it can go south, but I will do my best NOT to have a c-section. My mom had me at home unassisted and I turned out fine.
    10. Boy--Dr. Seuss. Girl--ladybugs and butterflies.

    I love the ocean so nautical theme nursery

    I will be about 2 weeks from turning 37 when lo arrives if she is on time.
    Number 4, all girls :)
    Used another bank, wanted a full bio sib for my DD
    Hospital for sure (high risk)
    Will EBF if possible but I'm always open to using formula if necessary (I take meds for PPD)
    Yes, we think so anyway.
    Epidural all the way ;)
    I like very feminine, old fashioned, traditional prints like toile but our girl won't have a nursery, she will share a room with us for awhile.

    Due: January 27,2014 (I turn 36 on January 18th soooo...)
    2nd baby
    Not a NW bank
    Birth center with midwife
    It's a boy and we have a name!
    Attempting medication/intervention free birth
    Baby will be in our room for the first year while his big sister is in the 2nd bedroom. At that point we will either be buying a bigger place to give him his own room or I will have to de-frill Avery's room so that they can share!
    Avery 2.5 years and Julian 4.5 months

    We are due valentines day, but Dr. wants to take the baby at 36 weeks as long as lungs are developed because of myomectomy surgery I had in December.
    This will be our first :)
    Prefer not to share donor
    We will have a scheduled C-section
    Going to attempt breast feeding
    We have 2 names for each sex but we probably won't pick a name until the baby is born
    No theme, just colors...aqua and coral for a girl, aqua, orange and green for a boy
