Hello!
I am 18 weeks pregnant with my first baby, and loving it! I had been browsing thenest.com's boards, but I heard there were a lot more natural mommas over here so I thought I would check it out. Looking forward to some good conversations and learning a lot!
Oh yeah, can anyone tell me what circ is? Thanks!

Proud Army wife and Momma of two.

welcome!! Circ stands for circumcision. There is a board on here called "the case against circumcision". I wish I had known this site existed and had done some research before I had my kids. It would have really made a difference for us. Good luck with everything! This is a wonderful website and I'm sure you'll get a ton of information and support here.

Hi and welcome!! I'd also like to suggest for you to check out the cloth diapering forums and the vaccination forums.
Peace,

Welcome to MDC!

(Most people here feel that circumcision is a human rights violation...it is the boy's body, not the parents', and circumcision is painful cosmetic surgery usually performed on an unconsenting minor. Definitely check out the stickies on the circ forum.)

And check out the Due Date Clubs too! I've met some fabulous mamas that way. :

Thanks again...
The cloth diapering and vax boards sound good too... we're pretty much decided on those (for the diapers, against the vax ) but it's always so nice to find other people who don't think I'm crazy for it!

Welcome, HappyMommaBear! The first pregnancy is such a wonderful time. I hope you enjoy it. I just loved, loved, loved it when I could see my belly moving when my baby boys were moving around inside me. So special. By the way, Warning: Cloth diapering is addictive!

Welcome and congrats on your first baby!!! I have spent some time on the nest as well and I think that might have been where I first heard about MDC.

I second all the others in inviting you to check out the case against circumcision board. The regulars over there are very friendly and really know what they are talking about, and their wisdom was one of the major influences in making the decision for my DS.

Best of luck with your pregnancy! And welcome again
