i just found out yesterday that we are expecting. holy cow. this was completely unexpected and unplanned, but we are happy and we welcome this new life.

i have SO MANY QUESTIONS! i am 26 years old and ive never been pregnant before, though i have thought about having children... just not today, lol! still, we are getting used to the idea and couldnt be happier. hopefully i can get some of my million questions answered here. i feel so overwhelmed, happy one minute and sad the next.

well, i look forward to learning from you all.

wow what a great site this is! i was hesitant to join a pregnancy/baby forum because i thought that i would be the odd duck with my organic whole foods and inclination to take the natural route whenever possible. but this forum seems to be full of like-minded people! hurray! im glad i found this place, though i am overwhelmed by the amount of information available. thank you all for the welcome.

I am sure that ALL pregnancies are a bit unexpected. Even if you plan and plan, the magic isn't up to us so you never really know until you get the first "you're pregnant!" Congratulations and good luck!
