Hey ladies of BG. I haven't been on here much, but will be more so in these last few waiting weeks of my pregnancy. If I PT you, it's probably because we have a close due date and I'd like to be your due date buddy! Feel free to PT me too!
Is this the first child?: 2nd
What day did you find out you were pregnant?: October... not sure
How did you feel when you found out? Happy, a little surprised, but I was more concerned with my husband's reaction
Who was with you?: My husband
How far along were you? 3 weeks
Who was the first person you told? My husband and I first told his parents, 3 months later
How did the daddy react?: A little sheepish, with a mix of happiness and a shocked expression
How did you parents react?: We passed a christmas card around to family on Christmas day - inside was an ultra sound photo. My mom was the first to see and she shouted out with excitement, "Is this what I think it is!?" Then we had a group hug.
How did his parents react?: We gave his parents the same card. His dad began to cry and stood up to hug us. His mom followed along, rather in shock, not expecting the news.
How often do they call to check on you? We live closer to my in-laws - so see them quite a bit.

ABOUT THE BIRTH
Who is going to be with you?: Husband only! Our daughter & parents will visit when it's all over.
Are you going to video tape it?: No
Natural or medicated?: I guess we'll see... I had an epidural with my first, but it prolonged the labor. I hear 2nd time goes much quicker, so we'll see how it goes.
Are you scared about labor? No
What do you think will be the worst part of labor? Pushing - I couldn't feel it before, so it was a challenge.

Do you think you will have a c-section?: No
Do you think you will cry when you first hold your baby?: I try not to cry in front of people, so probably not.
Do you know what you will say to the baby when you first hold it?: I will probably be speechless. I'm more of an observer, not a talker.
What do you think the fathers reaction to the baby will be? He is the same as me... we have a silent way of communicating
How do you think family and friends will feel? Happy, of course!
