I'm a noob to the group and thought I'd pop in to introduce myself. My fiance and I are expecting our first child together...our EDD is Valentines Day (I am currently 16 weeks along). I have an OB appointment a week from today and I'm so excited about the possibility of learning the sex! I love being pregnant, though I have to say, so far, it's been pretty stressful. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and pretty bad hypertension, which has made things very challenging, to say the least. There are many days that I'm just stuck in bed, and between the pain and BP issues, I am restricted to a few activities I can safely enjoy. I have lost both of my parents, my grandparents, and only have a couple of younger cousins even close to me regionally, which makes things pretty sad at times. I'd love love love to meet some women who have some of these challenges in common with me.
I am very lucky, however, to have my fiance and his incredible family, and despite things, the "Cub," as we call her/him for now, seems to be doing just lovely. I've already begun to feel movements!! I dream of what this baby's beautiful face will look like and love to sing to Cub, even though I know he or she cannot hear me yet.
Thanks for reading and I hope to get to know some of you!
