Hello Everyone!smile.gif


This seems like a very welcoming community!


I found this site by way of researching "Grieving while pregnant" and decided to join after reading some very supportive threads. 


I lost my mother and her best friend(basically my 2nd mom) on December 29 last year in an awful head on collision. They were on their way to spend New Years with my husband and I here in Calgary. 


I am an only child and my dad is a bit of an oddball so our relationship has always been strained. My mom and I were best friends. I took 6 months off from work and have started to feel normal again even though as I type I am getting emotional. I will save more for the grief thread.


My amazing husband has wanted kids since the day we met, but I am a bit of a planner and wanted us to be settled. I still have my IUD in place but have a strong strange feeling we will be preggo's as soon as I get it removed! 


Can't wait to learn, laugh, heal and share our pregnancy journey with all of you!


Take care!
