Hello! I've never ever joined one of these sites before but I've decided I would love to give it a try. According to the first day of my last period I am due on May 31st, but when I went for my ultrasound about two weeks ago I was a few days off. So if I go by that my due date is actually May 28th, but I'm pretty sure the doctors aren't changing it because it was within a week of the original. Anyway, this is my first baby and it was completely unexpected! We were both extremely shocked at first but we are now moving on to being excited and getting ready.
I am a high school math teacher so the timing of everything works out pretty perfectly. I'll have the entire summer to stay home with my little one and get to know him or her. Still no idea what I'm having, I hope to find out within the next month. My bf is a full time student right now (he started a little late because he completed four years in the military first.) We currently live together in a two bedroom apartment, we we'll be giving up the office in exchange for a nursery. (I'm still trying to figure out what we'll do with the desk.)
Right now I'm trying to deal with the fact that people want to touch my belly and I DO NOT want them to... I just don't like being touched in general. I don't even let the pedicure lady give me a foot massage! I just want to get my pedicure done without too much touching. So the belly touching is extra unwanted.
I'm looking forward to getting to know other expecting moms!
Hi Kristin and Welcome!
This is the first (and only) forum site like this that I joined, too. So far it's been really supportive.
Glad the timing worked out for you with a summer baby. Congrats!
