Hi I'm Brooke!

I am currently 11 weeks pregnant with my first and due 11/21/09ish. I am so so so exhausted all the time but at the least the nausea phase is beginning to pass and the ravenously hungry phase is beginning. I have lived in Seattle for about a year now and love it so far.

Look forward to hearing from other locals.

Take Care
Hello there!
I'm Stefanie and I'm due December 9th. Like you, Brooke, I am absolutely exhausted! The nausea hasn't actually come to fruition (so to speak), thankfully, but I'm feeling sort of... carsick all the time.
I live in Bellingham and have for six years after moving up from San Diego to attend WWU (then moving back to SD, then moving back here -- I just can't stay away!)
This is my first, so I'm looking forward to talking with lots of other moms-to-be.
Hi, I'm Erin.

I'm 17 weeks now and due October 19. I am still pretty tired and low-energy, but maybe because I'm anemic rather than anything else. And I'm still nauseated but not as much as a few weeks ago.

I'm in Redmond and have a 3-year-old daughter who was born at Evergreen Hospital with a midwife. Evergreen was good, for a hospital, but they don't let you waterbirth there (though you can labor in water) so I'm aiming for a birth center birth this time around.
How are all you pregnant mamas feeling now?

Erin, my 3rd son was born October 19! (2006)

Hi! I'm Holly. I'm 23 years old. I have a three year old daughter named Moire (Moy ruh, or Mwa ruh). We live in Kent, on the Easthill.

I wanted a homebirth, but my midwife kicked me out of her practice at 37 weeks. I found a great birth center that would take me. Erin, you should look into this place. It's on the same block as the Evergreen Hospital: Puget Sound Birth Center. It's amazing. My midwife team was so nice, and friendly, and honest. Ask for Heike. :)

Even in going to a midwife, I had to be transferred to a hospital (I chose Swedish) because my waters had been ruptured over 24 hours, with meconium present, I was 10 days "overdue", and I was GBS+. That was a crazy experience.

I can't wait to share my experiences and wisdom with you guys and to learn what I can from you as well. :)
I've heard great things about Heike! I posted my intro on another thread (didn't see this one), but I'll post here too.

I'm Kristina, I live in Bremerton with my husband and our three kids- 12, 8 and 2 in September. :) I'm a doula and childbirth educator, and a blooming henna artist.
