WOO HOO!!!!  Congrats!!!!
I'd like to join, as well! Thanks for starting this. :-)
I'm in San Diego, too.
Be gentle to yourself.  Not everyone feels rainbows and unicorns from day 1 and that is OK.    Just take it one day at a time.  When I was pregnant with #3, I had to remind myself I was pregnant.  I didn't really feel like I thought I should until he was born, I was just too busy and stressed with everything else life was doing.    This time, when I start feeling overwhelmed by it all, I look at cutesy baby things.  Other people's nurseries, cutesy ideas, life hacks for...
A rolled up towel supporting your neck as you sleep?  I used to get terrible neck pain and my neck would lock up.  I saw a chiropractor and got it all straightened out....LOL  cuz he was a chiropractor.....   Anyway, try the towel trick, it helps me when my neck starts getting sore.
