DD: Darling (or Dear) Daughter DS: Darling Son DH: Darling Husband   There is a whole list that a mama made up of all our acronyms that I'll find the link to for you!  (It can be a little overwhelming!  haha).   Some others:  FWIW: For what it's worth OTOH: On the other hand AFM: As for me      You'll get it in no time!  And Welcome to Mothering!!  :)
Welcome!!  Mothering is such a fun place to be when you are pregnant!  I would really recommend joining the December Due Date Club-- you'll find a lot of like-minded supportive mamas due the same month there!  I just had a baby in March and my due date club was AMAZING.  We are all such good friends now.     I hope you enjoy your pregnancy and have that awesome unmedicated birth!   I have had two natural deliveries, and while labor is a lot of hard work, it is...

Yep, "Zoo" is North Buffalo.  Trader Joes is actually opening on the border between Tonawanda and Amherst.     Are you wanting to home birth?   There are two homebirth CNMs in the Buffalo area.  Khristeena Kingsley (wnymidwife.com) and Eileen Stewart (buffalomidwiferyservices.com).  I saw Khristeena for the most amazing prenatal care and had a wonderful homebirth with her 6 weeks ago.  :)   I can't recommend her highly enough.  Both are out of network for most major...
