My friend from elementary school told me about this website, and I have been enjoying the forums. I am 8 weeks pregnant tomorrow, due July 9th. This is my first pregnancy, and I'm really excited (although not excited about how miserable I feel!) I've been stuck with what my mother refers to as the "brat" diet - bananas, rice, applesauce, toast - because most foods sound so disgusting to me right now.
I live on the outskirts of a little town and it's pretty lonely out here. I haven't found any prenatal fitness classes, or activities for women my age in this area. It's so frustrating - I feel pretty isolated.

Anyway, greetings fellow pregnant ladies! :

WELCOME and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

I'm due on the 10th of July, but from past experience I reckon it will be at least 3 - 4 weeks before that!
