Hello ladies,<br>
My name is Jessica. I've been an avid reader of this thread since my + POAS in mid-August, but several things have kept me from posting until now. The biggest was that we *just* started announcing to family and friends this past weekend, and I felt weird announcing online before IRL. Also, I think we've been a bit nervous about everything sticking, so it's been our little secret until this, my 16th week. However, now that it's out we are having so much fun telling people and I can't wait to jump in here.<br><br>
I have to say it has been so wonderful to hear from women who are going through the same thing at the same time...even though we wanted to keep the news to ourselves it got a little lonely for me every once in a while. DH was awesome about listening/sympathizing but sometimes you just need the girls, yk? So thanks to you all for being so open and so real about your experiences!!<br><br>
Some quick info on me...I'm an OB nurse in a free-standing birth center and starting grad school for my CNM next week (!!!). I'm married to my best friend and we live with our two crazy cats. This little critter in my belly will be our first - not totally planned but not unexpected and *very* welcome. My first trimester was full of much exhaustion, plenty of queasiness and lots of food aversions. That didn't go away overnight with the start of the second trimester, but has been slowly easing up. This week I'm finally exercising again and starting to think of food as my friend once more. Yea!<br><br>
Okay, that's enough of a novel. I'm looking forward to being more of a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blahblah.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blah blah"> instead of simply a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/notes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="notes">:
