Thanks for starting this thread- I love you guys!!
I totally ditto everything that has been said already!
With my 1st pregnancy, I didn't know anything about due date clubs or online groups- I found out about AP when my son was around 3 mos old and joined a yahoogroup DDC when he was 6 mos. old (so I didn't go through the pregnancy with them) but we are the closest group now, 3 yrs later, I don't know what I'd do without them.
Somewhere along the way, I learned about MDC and can't beleive that I didn't know about it sooner!
So this time I knew I wanted to join a group right away. Actually I was pregnant earlier and was in a different DDC, but I miscarried and dropped out (lurked to see when everyone had their babies
) I was thrilled to join this group, and be able to follow it through to the end!
I so, so hope we can stay together as we go through our postpartum days, and then as life moves on and we celebrate all of our babies' milestones- teething, crawling, eating solid foods, etc, and lean on each other for support with all of our sleeping issues, breastfeeding issues, and anything else that goes on in our lives!
I am constantly talking about 'my groups' to my husband- funny how you can be so close to people you've never met (we have all spent a lot of time together, though!). You are such an amazing group of knowledgeable women! I have learned so much from you!
