Hi everyone. At 35, I am a first-time mom from NJ expecting my first baby in Dec (it's a girl!) I have a lot to ask and discuss but I'll get into those things on the topic-appropriate boards. I just wanted to post a quick hello/intro before I got into anything specific.
Welcome to the community and congratulations on your pregnancy! You'll definitely want to join your Due Date Club where you can chat with other moms due the same month as you and get the support and shared experiences that help us all through pregnancy. You'll find the Due Date Clubs here http://www.mothering.com/community/groups/tagged/tag/2013-due-date-clubs
