A great big Hello To All! I'm always uncomfortable introducing myself, so I'll try to make this as painless as possible for you all to read as it will be for me to struggle through writing this post. Mostly it's getting started.. once I get on a roll I'm okay... So, deep breath......
I am 37 years old 26 weeks pregnant with DD, baby 2, which is a miracle in and of itself. I have a 14 year old son that I absolutely adore, who lives with his father by mutual decision years ago. This is pregnancy number 7 for me, which is why this is such a miracle. There have been so many losses that I had intended on having a hysterectomy later this year. It appears that there was another plan for me, and I was able to stay pregnant this time. However, due to the circumstances, I am doing this solo. Without going into details, the sperm donor is not a safe person for me or my daughter, and did what any Mother in her right mind would do and make sure we are both safe.
Having left a dangerous situation, so much stress has fallen off my shoulders that I could actually enjoy my pregnancy, and have been doing so since the start of my 2nd trimester. I have an amazing support system through my family and friends as I go through my pregnancy and establish myself as the capable person I've always been again.
I look forward to getting to know you ladies and share in your stories, concerns, and birth of your children. Congratulations to all of you!
