I disappeared for awhile. I got pregnant back in May and posted about it, and then I miscarried.
So I took a break from baby boards for a bit, and kind of a break from life I suppose. It was a rough experience. I was only 5 weeks, but the hormone crash and the emotional part of it - very, very difficult.
Then we went on vacation for 3 weeks, and as soon as we got back, I found out that I'm pregnant again!! I waited a few weeks before saying anything, but I am now almost 7 weeks pregnant, and feeling the morning sickness/exhaustion/etc. So I am feeling VERY pregnant and less worried than I was at the beginning.
Also - through the vacationing - my little girl is now weaned! It's bittersweet - she turned 3 on June 5th, so it's exciting that she is growing up and becoming more independent, but it's also sad for me a bit b/c it's something we shared for so long.
I need to come meet you all!! I am in need of hanging out with like-minded mamas. I have some good friends, but now that preschool is starting up for a lot of people, I am feeling sort of like the "odd mom" again. It's like at the beginning when Natalie was a babe - there was a big disconnect with other moms around me b/c of the things I did differently (no CIO, trying out cloth diapering, nursing past a year, using a sling, etc.). Then for awhile, it seemed like I wasn't that odd, because everyone was playing with their kids and staying home w/ them etc... but now everyone is starting the preschool orientation and asking me when Natalie is starting preschool. It may all be in my head, but I'm starting to feel that disconnect again. So I would love to come meet you all!! Maybe we'll make the park day this week.
This was long and rambly and I don't know any of you yet really, but I just wanted to "talk" to you all.
