I hope I'm posting in the correct forum for the thoughts I want to share. Thank you for creating this great forum. I'm always grateful when I discover a forum where I can share ideas and thoughts with like-minded folks who are going thru similar experiences as I am. If I may, I have a special request. I'm happy and grateful to say that I'm 7 wks pregnant. This is my 1st pregnancy and I'm very excited and to be honest, a bit nervous, but I guess that's to be expected. I'm 41 years old. It's nothing out of the ordinary, it's just a scary new experience for me and I really need support, but specifically from women who are similar like minds and share similar healthy lifestyles that I do. I'm looking for a "pregnancy pen pal" because I need to connect with someone with whom I can relate, who understands me, with whom I can share similar experiences, preferably a little bit further along than I am so that I know what to expect and I can learn and glean from the other person's experiences. I'm plant-based non-dairy vegetarian, non-smoker, non-drinker, zero coffee, caffeine, sugar, herbalist, holistic, organic, green, chemical-free, and Ayurveda is an integral important part of my life. I make a strong effort to eat as healthy as I can, only natural healthy whole foods, no junk food, and I'm an avid label reader. I follow holistic medicine principles and I'm My due date is around March 25, 2012. I intend to have a natural home birth, preferably a water birth, but at minimal a natural home birth with a midwife. I'm petite with very small feet lol ;-). Hey, I couldn't resist some levity here. I know it's going to be an amazing journey and I'm looking forward to it. Thank you for listening and thank you for your kind caring support.
