Age: 39
Work: P/T Financial analyst
Due date: 27/08/05 - 2 days after dh's 40th b'day and 3 days before mine!
Baby: At 13 weeks, looked like a girl but will find out on the 15th April.
Birth plans: CS probably in the middle of August... at St. Thomas' in London

colinsmommy Tue 22-Mar-05 18:07:09

Great idea

Age: 31 (coming up on 32 quickly, though)

Job: SAHM after far too many years working in pharmacy.

Due date: 8/31/05. Oh wait, in yours 31/8/05. 13 days after DS's 2nd birthday, and 12 before DH's 38th.

Baby: #2, not finding out if it is a girl or boy, but call it he because of the extremely high % of males in dh's family, and hate calling the baby it.

Birth plans: hope to have a quick all-natural birth in hospital like DS, but might have to have an early induction if the baby is too big, because DS was 9 lbs and had a really big head. Might go for the epidural then, because haven't heard positive induction stories. But am really afraid of epidurals, so not thinking about that possibility.

Age 39 and my baby is due 16 days before my 40th! If I am really late again I may be in hospital on the day... hope not though.

I have ds who is 5 3/4, born in July and dd who is 3 on Saturday (16 April) (our 'daffodil' baby ). Don't mind what we have this time and haven't found out the sex. Due on 30th July but due to two previous late pregnancies expecting it to be August.

Except for voluntary jobs haven't worked since before ds and was an educational researcher.

Live in a tiny village 25 miles south of Aberdeen.

Birth Plans: just see what comes ! But would like to try birthing pool.
