Oh my gosh! I'm so glad to have found this place. Really... I feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and I've not even talked to anyone yet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The possibilities here are just so overwhelming... *deep breath* Or maybe I am just an emotional pregnant woman. *tehe*<br><br>
I'm a twenty-one year old mom, 20 weeks into my second pregnancy. My first baby is quickly becoming a boy... His name is Leo, and he'll be three end of August. I was a single mom up until, well, November. I was living in Missouri, met Chad online, went to visit him in Tennessee, and fell madly in love! When I went home from my second visit later in December, I found out I was pregnant! Needless to say, we decided being apart wasn't a good idea since we're so in love and I'm baking his baby, so I just recently made the choice to move here to East Tennessee to be with him. (Hi, Knoxville mommas!) I'm missing SW MO and my family there, but coping.<br><br>
We're working on our garden, putting our family pieces together(he has a five year old daughter we get on the weekends), paying off debt and saving to buy some land in the country, and trying to figure out how to have this baby! I had my first in a hospital... Not my cup of tea, for sure. So far this pregnancy I've gone entirely unassisted, except for one bleeding scare where I went to an urgent care center... Reaffirming my belief that I'm the best one to take care of me. I'd like to go the whole way... Pure Pregnancy and Free Birth. But fiance is scared that something may go wrong and wants me to have a midwife... I'm working to assuage his fears. I know I can do this! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod"><br><br>
Just wanted to introduce myself, and say "thank you" to all of you! Great mommas(and pappas?) in a great place. Thanks for coming together!
