Hi! My name is Nicole. I'm 27 and I live in Louisiana with my SO. He is a year and a half younger than me, and doesn't feel ready to have children yet, but I am certainly ready. My desire to be a mom, as soon as he decides he is ready, has lead me to research important parenting decisions, such as circ, breast vs bottle, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, etc. I actually found this site when doing a web search for info on delayed vaccination.<br><br>
I am eager to learn as much as I can about natural parenting, and all type of parenting issues and important decisions, so that when the time comes, I can make an informed decision on what is best for my baby and our family.<br><br>
Is it okay if I am here?

Of course! We have lots of people here, men/women, gay/straight, different colors, different locations, different places in their lives as far as pre baby, TTC (trying to conceive), pregnant, parents, etc. We also have parents here who have conceived naturally, with drugs, through IVF, adoption, etc. ANYONE is welcome here! Just make sure you read through the UA! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>

Absolutely! I wish I found MDC before I was pregnant. I would have been better prepared.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Welcome.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="welcome">

Crap, we have to be mothers?<br><br>
I'm a little underqualified for that, but at least my DW still loves me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I guess I'm actually a "retired mother" since my daughter turned eighteen a month ago. You're certainly welcome and you're also very wise to be doing your research ahead of time.

We're glad to have you here - I wish I'd found MDC before having children.<br><br>
I think there is even a 'tribe' in Finding Your Tribe' for members here who aren't parents yet - might be worth a search!<br><br>
Glad you decided to join us here!

Welcome! (I was a Mothering reader years before having kids- it's good to have this info BEFORE it becomes urgent, good for you for researching stuff beyond crib dust ruffle patterns!)

Hey Nicole! Of course you are welcome to join the group! I think it is great that you are doing research on parenting and childbirth before you get pregnant. More people should. Enjoy our forum!
