*hope that doesn't offend any true Delawareans - when we moved here a friend of ours dubbed it that and we thought it was funny winky.gif

Beth - I am in Cambridge too!  (I just put Boston down since that's what I tell people.)  Are you hoping to use the CHA birth center?  I'd like to as well, but I don't know if I'll survice going to my prenatal visits there, since I work downtown...

 

Kewpie!  Hello fellow IVF'er.  wave.gif

If any of the first-time mamas want to start a 1st-timer specific thread, feel free!  (Other forums do it by the month or the season...i.e. First Time Mother to Be December Chat Thread).  I'd do it, but I've got my hands full with the roll call. 

 

Of course, this is in addition to the Boston-based-mamas thread and the hummus-lovers thread.  :)
