Hi there,

I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello to everyone. I signed on a while ago but have to admit that I haven't been here as often as I'd have liked. I know that will soon change and can't wait to get to know you.

I live in beautiful Edmonton, Canada where for some strange reason, winter has abandoned us, but I guess as I don't ski, I can't complain about the warm weather and lack of snow. I'm a p/t grad student finishing my Master's thesis and a SAHM to Linnea, 13 months. I have done some consulting (research) in the past, and would love to be a WAHM when my studies are done. DH is a tradesman and we've been together for 12 years.

Linnea is my second DD. I lost my first daughter when I was 40 weeks pg back in 2003 for unknown reasons.

I'm still BFing (never thought I'd make it this far after the rocky start), and we CD Linnea (pocket dipes). She hasn't had any vaxes (yet). Right now I'm comfortable with delaying and even not vaxing.

Well, I guess that's it for now. I'm so glad to be here!

J

i'm deeply sorry that you had to suffer the loss of your first daughter. the pain that you must feel is almost beyond words i'm sure! i'm glad to see that you found some path to healing and welcomed another daughter into your life! i wish you the very best!

In love with Dh since 1998. We created Ds (7.1.03), Dd (10.16.06) and Dd (3.16.09).
