Okay...the sentiment has been overflowing and I just feel like adding a little bit to it.
We've all come so far and now mot of us have our babe's and though its a little sad...its been so wonderful sharing this whole journey with so many people who could empathize and offer advice.
I was looking at praireo's pictures of her birth and I was so taken aback...its such a beautiful thing to see a woman giving birth...I appreciated it before going through it...but nothing like I do now. We're all such wonderfully strong women and now blessed with the beautiful gift of life.
So thanks to all of you for sharing your stories and your wisdom...and I'm sure we will go through many more issues before we leave our DDC and venture out into the world of motherhood...but I just wanted to share some with all of you.
I second the original post! I debated posting something similar.
Sharing the last 9 months of whining, woes, joys and TMIs with people that show such strong support even though we wouldn't know each other if we bumped into anyone on the street.....I am honored to have shared this time with everyone and hope everyone enjoys motherhood to the fullest whether it is the first time round or the tenth.
I will probably not be on that often anymore - computer time is a luxury nowadays (a nap or laundry seems more productive), but I too wanted to say how much I "virtually love" you all and thank you for being part of my family for this period of time.
I wish health and happiness to all.
