Support thread for all atheist/agnostic/non-religious/secular-humanist moms-to-be! <3

We've had a similar thread in the TTC groups section
for a long time, and it was so nice to get support from
people who understand. We tried to make a pregnancy
group before, but I think it was back when just a few of
our members were actually pregnant, so it kind of flopped.
This was quite some time ago, so I figured we would give
it another try, now that more of us are expecting!

:flower: New members are also welcome, of course! :flower:

:hi: Here I am! Thanks for setting this up Gingerpanda!

You have been added!

So, have you had any scans yet, Ameli?

Yes, I've had one scan at 8 1/2 weeks. Here it is! It was amazing to see it move and its heart beating. Can't wait until the next one when it will look more like a little person! What about you?

I wasn't going to have a scan until 12 weeks... but at my first midwife appointment, she felt and said my uterus was measuring a little larger than she expected. I told her I had conceived on Clomid, and she scheduled me for a scan on July 2nd to make sure it's not twins. Now everyone is convinced I'm having twins, except me! :haha:

DH would love twins. He's so giddy picking out twin names. So far we have girl-girl and girl-boy twin names. I'm hoping for just one boy, but after over a year of trying, I'll take what I can get!

Do you have a gender preference? I noticed all your tickers were blue.

Ameli Jun 21st, 2013 13:53 PM

Oh man, twins! I *think* I would love to have twins (so efficient!) but probably will say something different in a few months. I really don't have a gender preference. I just like the color. OH actually wants a little girl. I think it's because we have a friend with the sweetest little girl. We will be super-happy with either though. How do you feel about the possibility of twins?

At first I was freaking out. It's pretty much a c-section sentence. I was wanting to deliver a waterbirth with my midwife. My midwife can't help me if I have twins, but I'm hoping one of the OBs at the practice will be supportive of me having a natural twin birth.

Mostly, I feel like there's just one, so there's no need for me to be freaking out over the possibility. I'll be happy if there are two. I'll be happy and relieved if there is just one. :thumbup:

Tx! My first thought was "Wow, we have godless heathens in Texas?!", then I remembered that I'm in Kentucky. :haha: I shall add you!
