Hey ladies.
Just found this place tonight and thought I'd introduce myself.
I'm 32, and have one child, a 3 yr old daughter who is constantly amazing me.
I am gaining confidence as a mother and am learning to trust my own instincts.
For example:
When I had Punkin, I wanted to use cloth diapers instead of disposable ones. I allowed myself to be talked out of it; I was convinced by my mother-in-law that it would be too difficult for me.
Ironically, I allowed myself to be talked INTO breastfeeding, and I feel that is the best decision I ever made.

I'm learning as I go. Sometimes that frightens me, but I figure some effort is better than no effort at all. Slowly my home is becoming more eco-friendly and safer for my daughter. Little things I do...like using vinegar to clean and disinfect instead of bleach, because it's safer.

I know I'm rambling, but I wanted to give a quick intro.
I look forward to meeting everyone.

Due in August! congrats!

I SOOOO want to be pregnant again, even tho it's not a financially sound decision for us right now (especially since my husband and I just spent $1500.00 we don't really have on car repairs.) I'm 32, and while my pregnancy at 29 wasn't THAT difficult, I had complications, and I'm afraid it isn't going to get any easier as I get older.

Do you know if you're having a boy or girl? (And do you get tired of being asked that question?)

Yay! Lots of expectant mommies here! I want another one. I'm exhausted beyond belief with just one, but hey, I'm a glutton for punishment.
