Hi! I wanted to jump right in and introduce myself. I've been looking for an online community to participate in and I'm so glad I finally found this one on Mothering. I've tried a few other websites with forums and found the conversations there, let's just say, not in harmony with my values. I subscribe to the magazine and can't believe I hadn't thought until now to check out the website and online community.
I live in the Los Angeles area and am expecting my first on August 28. My husband and I got married on July 2nd. We got pregnant right after we got married and then I miscarried at 10 weeks with a blighted ovum. I never got to hear a heartbeat or see an ultrasound so it wasn't as emotional as I think it could have been. With this pregnancy, I've been treated like a VIP and have had 4 ultrasounds so far. It's been so wonderful watching our "little giblet" grow and develop. I have my NT scan next Tuesday and after that I think I will finally be able to relax and take a deep breath and let myself finally "be" pregnant.
Anyway, I look forward to sharing this experience with all of you!
