Hi Everyone-

I'm new here. I just found out I was pregnant 24 hours ago. I am around 1.5 months (guessing) but won't know until I see someone this week.

Heres my situation, I'm 27 and live in NYC. I am a graduate student finishing up my thesis in December. My partner is 28 and German. We live together here in the city.

I have a lot of questions for everyone and I'm hoping to meet some other women in the city for support and maybe a cupcake or something :

Anyhow, hello..

any other NYC moms-to-be out there?!

Hi and congratulations!!!

We're not in Manhattan but we have a pregnancy and birth support group here in Jersey City. We meet the 4th Saturday of every month from 10 AM-12 Noon in downtown JC. We have speakers, we provide support to women and education about choices regarding childbirth and information about finding mother-friendly care providers. There are quite a few women here who go to NYC so we try to gather information about care-givers there as well.
We are called BirthNetwork of Hudson County. check out www.birthnetwork.org for more information about our non-profit organization and we have a yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/beautifulbirth/, check it out for links, discussion and questions...

We are 2 stops into JC on the Path (Grove St) depending on where you are in Manhattan, it is quite close.

Jill

check out the ny tribal section to find others in your area! And the 'student and working mamas' section, too... there are tons of student parents on this board!

Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy! I see you've already been pointed over to Finding Your Tribe, which will help you find mamas in your own area. The Pregnancy board (and your Due Date Club) is a great place to find on-line support.

Since your partner is German, you already know that circumcision is not necessary, but please do stop by the Case Against Circumcision forum when you get a chance - there is lots of good information there for parents to be....

Glad you are here!

Hi

What are you scared of? Is it the pregnancy, giving birth, being a mom, all of the above?
talking to other moms is a great way to alleviate some fear.....especially if you can find someone who is going through a similar situation....

Hi,

I live up in the Bronx and teach in Upper Manhattan. I just gave birth to my first child this past February. Right now, I am also finishing up my Masters and know what a stress it can be... Feel free to join us over at the Finding your Tribe thread for the New Yorkers.

Dont forget to also join your Due Date Club and be with other mama's who will give birth the same month as you. Guessing from your calculations you will probably be due sometime in April or May 2008....

Welcome!
