As many of you know, I became an official mother on August 27, 2008 at 12:06am. Since that day, I started a journey. This journey is one of insecurity, but also tenacity to do whatever I have to do for this child.
It seems like I am one of the first of MANY in a row to have a baby. Truthfully, I have never known more pregnant people in my whole life. I have a friend or two (or three) having a baby every month from now until February. One of the most helpful and encouraging things to me since bringing home Davie has been online forums. When I was feeling SO discouraged about breastfeeding or my "new life", it was so lovely to go find other new moms who are dealing with or have dealt with the same thing. It got me to thinking about all of you. How could we help each other out on our journeys?
So I wanted to try setting up our own sort of "forum", where we can ask questions, tell our stories, voice our frustrations, etc. I've had some GREAT conversations with some of you about pregnancy, labor, and the first days home from the hospital. I hope we can make these conversations more public for my many round-bellied friends. So, any topics you want to discuss with the group, post them!
