Edit: she removed the offensiveness (thanks), so I will remove the quote of it, too.

If you don't like it, don't post. Everyone is just introducing themselves and saying their background, what's wrong with that? None of us want to be in a group where people say that things are 'god's plan' etc etc. It's just about having things in common to make friends on here.

I've moved over from the TTC thread... DH and I identify ourselves as humanist and had a humanist wedding, as we would have the naming ceremony for baby. Xx

I don't know about you guys, this is my first pregnancy. I am so thrilled and excited but I am so frightened that something will go wrong. I feel like the wait until the 12 week scan is going to be hard just with worry that something could be wrong. I know that will never really go away really though! I was getting really strong crampy 'period pains' last night and although I know that it is normal it made me all anxious! Xx

What's a naming ceremony? That sounds like our kind of thing!

And MrsSmartie, I am definitely with you in terms of the worry! I don't have a scan until September 24th, and this is likely to be one of the most anxious months of my life. For better or for worse I have a ton of symptoms, so I know that there's definitely something up! My boobs are up almost a cup size (waiting to buy new bras until I see how much they grow!), I'm desperately exhausted, and my back is hurting almost nonstop. The bright side is that there's no doubt I'm pregnant!

My mom asked if she could pray for me. I told her to knock herself out because it couldn't hurt.

Awesome! Thanks for starting this thread. My partner is a 'devout' atheist. I'm more of an agnostic leaning atheist. We're lucky in that our family - even the religious ones - don't try to force their views on us. Good luck to them if they did.

This will be our first child. I'm nervously awaiting our 12 week scan to hopefully get some indication that things are well so far.

I'm really glad to see this thread because it really makes me uncomfortable to see prayer threads up. As usual I simply don't participate but I feel that creates a culture where expectations are that people will support each other in religion as well as experience.

For those that are struggling with loss, I had a real test of my belief structure (or non-belief) structure a few months ago when my younger brother passed away suddenly and unexpectedly of unknown causes. I wasn't sure if it would be easier if I could believe he went somewhere good.... but then he was a 'devout' atheist as well, so I suppose if I did believe in that stuff I would still have trouble convincing myself that he was accepted by whatever deity... In any case a friend forwarded me this pod cast and while I thin the tone is a bit over the top it made some good points and helped.

I am interested in Humanism and think we will probably have a naming ceremony. I think it is a nice way to mark your baby's entrance into the world without having a christening.
