Hi, everyone! I posted a few times back in August, but I've been pretty much lurking since then. I've never done the message board thing before, and all the talk of the fake people on here made me nervous and uncomfortable, but now I realize how much I'm missing out by not posting. Sorry for lurking!
A little about me: I'm a first time mom living in Austin, TX and gave birth to my baby girl Alice on April 3rd (her due date was 4/11). Everything with the birth was awesome - my water broke at home after one contraction and I delivered her naturally 5 hours later.
Now, I'm a SAHM (working online part-time) and my husband is back at work, and I'm just trying to get used to everything. It's hard being home all the time and not really having anyone to talk to. I hope you all don't mind me joining in so late in the game. I have learned so much from each of you and the questions and responses you've posted on here over the last 10 months - it's been really invaluable, even though I've been too shy to join in.
Hey there! Glad you're joining in the conversation! This is definitely a great place to talk with other mommies going through similar things.
Congrats on your little one--sounds like a great labor!
I've found the easiest way to post pics is to upload them to some kind of photo sharing website (I use photobucket), which will then generate [IMG] codes that you can copy and paste right into your post. Hope that helps!
