6 weeks pregnant new mom

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Just found out last week that I am pregnant with my first child. I think it's a girl but we won't know for sure until delivery time. I am planning on having a natural birth at The Farm in Tennessee. I am 24, married for 2 years and currently living in Beijing. We moved here from Atlanta in our first year of marriage and planned to stay here until late 2013. At this point, I will be moving back this Christmas and my husband will still be moving back next Christmas, unless he can get a better job here. Fingers crossed, excited to join the board!

Congratulations! We have friends we met in Beijing who moved to Atlanta and got married. I had to do a double take to make sure it wasn't the same story. :)

 

How are you liking Beijing? Do you guys teach there?

...and I have to add that I'm totally envious that you get to birth at The Farm. Super cool!

Living here has been interesting. The air is horrible though, which is why I will be home in ATL for the majority of my pregnancy. No, we aren't teaching, we moved here for my husband's IT job and I am working in recruitment...although getting an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy.

The air IS so terrible! I miss Beijing....but after a week or so, always want to come home to the PacNW!

Oh wow, sounds so adventurous! So your husband will have to stay in Beijing for the first several months after your baby's birth? That will be so challenging for you both!

 

CONGRATULATIONS on your first wee baby!
