Did you just find out? Congrats. What's your due date? Glad to have you here. I had my first child at 17, preggo at 16 and it was really difficult. It was way back before Dr Sears was known and the going philosophy was don't hold your baby too much, dont sleep with them, etc etc. Just like now. But I had no one to steer me. I just did what felt right. I didnt care what anyone said. SO that ended up being my baby was always with me and always nursing and always sleeping with me. I had one of those lame carriers that they ahd 20 years ago that someone had given me, but I still wore her around in it everywhere. My biggest regret was that I stopped nursing her because of pressure from mother in law. By pressure I mean, she made me stop. I was too young to stand up for myself, and much to meek. Since then I've not cared what anyone said. Three and a half years was my record.
anyway...I understand how scary and lonely it can be but you've found a great place to find some friends!
Yeah, like Jaimie said, just read the titles, when you see a subject you are interested in, click on it. I usually leave even just a short comment so I can find where my last comment was. On the front page of our DDC if you've replied ot a thread (a conversation) it will give you a link to click to go to your last comment. Also, I saved the DDC to my bookmarks so I dont have to wade through the main board.
The threads are just basically conversations...how we are feeling, what we are eating, etc.
Dont feel like you have to read every thread...just find what interests you. You'll start to recognize names and get to know people.
