Hi ladies! I am not new to JM, but I am new here. I've been lurking off and on for a couple weeks. I wasn't sure if I would join or not but here I am.

I'm Emily. DH and I have been married for 11 years and we have a 5-year-old boy and another who was born May 2011 and lived for 32 minutes. He had a lethal dwarfism that didn't allow his lungs to develop because of a small rib cage.

It took us 5 years of trying before our oldest came along and 3 years for our second. This one only took a year! That still sounds like a long time, but we're shaving 2 years off the wait time each time!

I stay at home with my 5-year-old (who is about to start kindergarten if I can bear it ), and I also design invitations for bridal and baby showers. I do that from home, which I love.

So that's a little about me. I look forward to being part of the group. It's fun to make friends with other moms who are at the same stage. I hope you'll have me!

Welcome and congratulations! Can't wait to get to know you! I've been lucky enough to not be in any catty due date clubs... except on baby center. But thats just because there are WAY too many people on there, lol. Get that many pregnant women together and there's bound to be some issues!

Thanks! I do it on my own with an Etsy shop. It keeps me busy and I really enjoy it. And it's fun to get to "meet" people from all over the world.

Haha... Yeah, I noticed! But that's one of the reasons I came out of lurking.

Thank you. It was a hard experience. We learned about his diagnosis at 19 weeks and I carried him to 37 weeks, because we wanted to keep him with us as long as we could. It's one of those experiences that I never want to do again, but I learned so much from that time and since then. I think it changed me a lot, hopefully in good ways.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
