Hello, I decided to join this group on a recommendation from a friend. The What to Expect discussion groups seem mean spirited and judgmental. Plus I disagree with the advice given by the website.
I work for a local natural food market in Portland, OR. I'm newly married and have a 12 year old step son. Our baby is due Oct 2014.Frankly, I'm feeling overwhelmed most of the time, wondering how I'm going to juggle everything.
