Hi Ladies,

I would like to introduce myself and get acquainted on here. A little background about me...
I am 24 weeks pregnant, due Jan 6. We're having a little boy and we've decided to name him Owen Gabriel. DH and I have also decided to give cloth diapers a try and I want to EBF for the first 6 months at least! This is my second pregnancy but the first ended in miscarriage early in the first trimester. I am very excited about being a mom and am looking forward to getting to know you.

More background about why I have such a late intro...
I have been somewhat active on the bump since I became pregnant. I had found the community somewhat useful, and I like the set up of the site and I had such a cool siggy and all that good stuff. I also liked the information available on the bump's website.

But the women on the bump (most of them) are B!TCheS! My goodness, I feel like you can't post an innocent question without being berated... and then rather than coming to your rescue, the rest of the ladies side with the bully. I would cringe when it would happen to other women and it has happened to me several times. I just don't get it. So.. I'm really hoping that women here are nicer. Granted, I don't feel like I need a lot of coddling or anything, but I just want to feel free to speak my mind, ask questions, and feel that those are welcome and that I'm not going to be mocked for it. Anyone else ever go to TB and experience what I'm talking about? Either way, I'm sorry for such a late intro and I'm hoping that switching boards will be beneficial for the last half of my pregnancy

first off, congrats on your pregnancy and welcome to the group. i think you'll find it alot happier here. all the girls here are so respectful of each other and sure, i have seen some drama (in other due date groups) but ours has been great!

a little about me: i will be 22 weeks tomorrow. we are also having a little boy and are naming him kyle landon (due jan. 23). this is my 2nd pregnancy as well, but first baby. the first one ended due to a blighted ovum (sac with no baby inside). i work full time with a financial firm, and create artwork on the side for extra cash. my hubby is a firefighter/paramedic. we have been married for 3 years, but have known each other for 12. last but not least, we have one furbaby, baxter, who is an adorable cocker spaniel.

again, welcome to the group and i look forward to getting to know you!

Welcome! Ladies here are great! I actually switched DDC's because the other one was like that. One person had a loss and after that they assumed every question or comment was intended to belittle the loss, when they were actually legitiment questions and concerns. I also felt like I couldn't post without being jumped on. I didn't like the drama.

So anyway I will be 25 weeks tomorrow. We are having another lil girl. We were freaking out for a lil while bec we wernt going to have anymore children. I have three girls from a previous relationship and SO and I have one. Before our DD we had a 9.5 week MC of twins.

I think you will like it here!

We cloth diaper and love it! I am now thinking how much we are going to save having two in diapers, lol!

Congrats and welcome! Yes, i used to go on the What to Expect forums too and they are just as bad there. Here is a much closer, calmer community! We are very supportive of each other and have some wonderful ladies here! We have discussed hot topics but never have i witnessed any discussion or debate get out of hand as it has on some of those more popular app/websites. I hope you feel at home here and its great to have another addition!! Again, welcome!!
