Hi, my name's Niki, and I'm 21 years old, pregnant with my first baby...Ethan James due June 12th, 2005 ...I am very excited, and scared too! I don't know very much about babies(actually, hardly anything at all) but everybody has been telling me that I'll learn fast. Sometimes the advice that other women gives me gets on my nerves! Does anybody else feel that way? I mean, I love the fact that I have people there for me, but no two pregnancies are the same, and its like overwhelming! Oh well. Well anyways, just wanted to introduce myself...so talk to you all later, and hopefully I can be of some help to some of you!!

You're entirely right; so many people not only have opinions for you, but feel somehow obligated to share them! And it doesn't stop with pregnancy; they just keep telling you what to do and how (in their opinion anyway) you should be doing it!!
When my older daughter was about 1 or 1 1/2, I was out shopping and had the kids in the double stroller. Julia managed to slide out of the buckles in the stroller and land on the floor of Macys. Every old lady in a 40' radius told me I really should buckle her in!! I kept asking my friend if I really looked that stupid. (nice friend, kept saying "welllllll")
But you'll really enjoy it here-- it's a great bunch of people. Enjoy!!
