I'm from Iowa and currently 16 weeks along with my first I'm a little nervous as none of my close friends have children and I'm wanting to go the natural route! :grin:
Any advice or threads anyone can direct me to would be wonderful!
:w @jac4315 and Congratulations on your pregnancy! The first thing you should do here is join your due date club. They can be found here. You can introduce yourself and start talking with other people due the same month. You can also post in the I'm Pregnant forum for general issues.
I was first of my friends to have kids, too. That can be rough. Do you live in a small town? I live in a smallish town, but still found a lot of great new mom friends and support through mommy and me activities/groups, prenatal exercise classes. I got to meet experienced moms that really helped me navigate it all in the beginning.
