Hi! I've been lurking for a while, but figure I should start posting now! I'm 26 and live near Albany, NY. My husband and I are expecting our first baby, a girl, on 10/1/08. I already left my job and will be a SAHM until any and all kids we have are in school.

My biggest concern with having a baby is breastfeeding. I had a breast reduction a few years ago, but have already read DYOS and am active on the bfar.org website and forums. When I started producing some colostrum last week at 29 weeks, you'd have thought I had won the lotto by how excited I was! Right now we're concentrating on getting everything ready for baby, and reading up as much as possible about everything parenting related.

Welcome to MDC! I live on Long Island. Breastfeeding can be challenging at first, but you seem to have some knowledge about what is to come. All of our bodies are different and all of our babies are different. I had a hard time at first, but I pushed through the battles. For me after 3 weeks things were a little easier. Then one day your a breastfeeding pro. I'm sure there is great advice at this forum.
