i literally just joined a few minutes ago, but i figure i'll go ahead and introduce myself before i forget... and i couldn't find the original so i just cribbed it from another recent intro post.
Name and age? Reni, currently age 29
Husband/Boyfriend/Partner? kinda-sorta-boyfriend thinger i guess (although unrelated to little person) - Charles
When is your due date? um...July 13th, 2002
What is your birthing method? i had placenta previa so i had to have a C-section. i wanted to have a water birth
What sex would you like? How many? i really really wanted a girl, but i'm thrilled to have a boy now that i remember what i was like during the formative hormonal years... and i've considered having more but i'm not really ready to do it all again just yet.
Names, or names-to-be? well, Kid A - Alexandre Dante-Brandin. as far as future names, i've got literally pages. and they change almost daily. Charles is determined that he's not going to have kids (this week - last week was a different story)
Do you plan to breast or bottle feed? Kid A was both because of the fact that he was a preemie and my body didn't fully register that i wasn't pregnant until he was a week or two old. for the most part i breast-fed until he reached about four months although i'd hoped to do so for the first full year.
Will you be a working or stay at home parent? i was technically kinda both. for the most part i was fortunate enough to be able to work from home, and when i would actually need to go to the shop to do something everyone was great with my bringing Kid A (not that they had much of a choice).
Any web links you would like to share? none that spring to mind.
and i'm going to see if i can squish us both into a photo here, but i'm technologically retarded lately so bear with me... this picture is wicked old - Kid A was about two weeks old there. he'll be six this July.
