Completely normal. It took me awhile to feel like I fit in and now I have some great friends that I met in DDC. I hope you feel like you are fitting in here!!

I didn't fit in for a long time. My sense of humor is odd.

It took me a long time to feel at home in my DDC. In all honesty, I felt more at home here. But, I do keep up with my DDC/PR and they are some great ladies.

I was nervous about getting too comfortable and so didn't post a lot in my current DDC at first. I think it is completely normal.

Totally normal. I find that the further into pregnancy I get, the more I am able to identify with the others in my DDC. When newly pregnant, your emotions and thoughts are SO different if you are a giddy "I've never had anything go wrong" mama vs. a Pregnant After Loss mama.

Completely normal. I felt the same way in my DDC, but I'm glad I stuck it out because they are a great group of ladies. Give it time for the pregnancy to progress to fell more in tune.

I didn't feel like I fit in until well into my second trimester and I was even the host!! I think it's normal after a loss to feel guarded since your heart has already been broken.

I felt the same way at first, but then I started feeling more comfortable with my pregnancy, posted more, and became a host of my DDC! It'll most likely come with time, but if it doesn't you have us.
