What wonderful news!
I must say that I like the suggestion of Knox Blabbers who reason that since you and Jon met on KnoxBlab that you should christen a little girl child as "Blabigale".

where will you go for prenatal care? Let's talk about the best and worst places to go! I used Kristi Newton and that group with my kids (last one born 16 yrs ago.). This is in Knoxville.

I really like Dr Newton and Dr Brabson. If I end up needing an OB, I will use Dr Brabson, who caught two of my three babies and is just wonderful.

But if all goes well, we will be using the midwives at: www.lisarosscenter.org and planning a waterbirth.

We have our first prenatal appt next week.

you know I would be so careful about blogging about your baby. I read a lot of true crime and i was just reading about that woman in missouri who had the baby cut out of her. some woman on the internet befriended her,lied about her name, came to her on the pretense of buying a puppy and snatched her baby. the book was talking about a number of similiar crimes. it happens. and the internet is the number one way these people find their victims.

CONGRATULATIONS! That is so exciting!

mum said...

So very, very happy for your family. :) Babies are wonderful.

blessings to you both!!

Dr. Brabson delivered my sister almost 30 years ago. He has a very good reputation in the community.

There are some people who think you shouldn't tell everybody about a pregnancy until you are fairly well along. Like 10 or 12 weeks. Particularly kids. In case something did happen. Just sayin.

Hell, you can find pregnant people on the street every day - why would you have to find them on the Internets? And should something happen, well, there's too much secrecy when "something" does happen that isolates women and their families - it's not uncommon for "something to happen", it's part of life, and learning to talk openly and empathetically about that "something" may be a good thing.

I don't have any children but Dr. Brabson has been my gyn for over 20 years. He's great. He's currently helping me deal with recently diagnosed interstitial cystitis, and he's always patient and caring. Plus he treats you like an adult with sense and is always willing to answer all your questions. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Hope you have a happy, healthy fetus. And stay away from the Sam Adams and Marlboro's.

Big congratulations, K & J! What happy news!

And PS to "Anonymous" - RE the woman in East St. Louis who was slain and the child removed from her body - a girlfriend she had grown up with and known for years was arrested and being held for the murder. The friend pretended to friends, family, and police that she had given birth to the child and held a funeral for the baby; she told her boyfriend the truth, he went to the police, and she is now awaiting trial for her friend and friend's unborn child's murder.

So much for your "anonymous people on the Internet looking for people on the Internet to kill" theory.

I am not talking about the East St Louis case. I am talking about the woman in northwest MO about a year or so ago. (what IS is it about this part of the country?? well I grew up in MO and it sucked so maybe I should say no more....)she met a woman on a dog breeder website and the woman made up a name and said she wanted a puppy and the woman believed her. the woman had a long history of faking pregnancies and she had attempted to befriend another pregnant woman in the dog group before she selected the one she did. it was NOT some convoluted weird situations with a bunch of scumbags who are all feeding off each other. the woman whose baby was taken was a very nice decent person who made the mistake of thinking that because someone shared the same interest as her online that that made them also a decent person. she had no reason to think this woman did not just want to look at puppies as she said but she plotted the whole thing. I am not saying that things cant happen just on the street but when you advertise everything about your life on a website anyone can google it seems rather unwise in this day and age. yeah, I know its a shame and "people dont want to let it cramp their style" but this is the world we live in. to be honest I might have thought that someone else that say breeds dogs or knits or quilts or someother hobby might be "safer" than just a generic person you met online but after I read this book I sat there and thought ya know...I dont care WHAT someone seems like online, unless its someone I know in real life, they are getting precious little in the way of details of my life.

and as far as the third trimester goes...yeah, I heard that too. and the first time around I only told a few family members. but no one else. I had no other kids..its was simply that if something happened it would be even MORE painful running into people I had told after the fact. and superstitious as it is, I sort of felt like it was bad luck. even though thats pure supersition...the second time around it had taken us so long to get pregnant and anyone who knew us knew how long it had taken that I blabbed to a lot more people than the first time. however I did not tell our daughter who was about six at the time. had something happened I would not have hid it from her but I also saw no reason to tell her. its like people who gloat about how their kids saw the home birth of their sibling in a nice cozy sensitive new age setting. if all goes well..dandy....but God forbid that something goes really wrong and they have that trauma burned in their brains forever. its one thing to hear about something going wrong with a birth. another to see it. frankly I discussed this with my teenager once...she was like...eeew...thank you mom for not making me watch my brother being born.

Wonderful! Congratulations! (Tried to comment when you first posted, but Blogger was being weird.) May you have a healthy pregnancy and baby, Katie, and may your whole family be blessed by this new child.

Big congratulations to you, Katie!

Leslie said...

Congratulations! That's wonderful news. And a waterbirth sounds awesome. I would love to go to Lisa Ross, but they won't do VBACs.
