Hi ladies! I am Amy 28, married to Chris 30, mom to MaryBeth(MB) 2yrs. We are about 90% AP. We started out very traditional and become more and more AP. We were both raised in very traditional households. And as MaryBeth has grown we have realized we don't want her to experience the feelings we did growing up. I have lurking around getting advice, and working up the courage to join(I am a very shy person IRL.....very afraid of not being accepted for who I am.)

Dh and I have been married almost 5 years. We have endured personal struggles, infertility, and numerous large family problems. We have been to the edge of divorce and back.

Anyway more about my "little treat". MB was born by csection( 9lbs 12oz. cord around her neck twice, and I had toxcemia and failed induction) on Halloween. I tried to BF, but she refused to latch. I struggled to pump for 16 weeks. I really gave it my all, but my supply dropped to 1 oz per day and I quit!! And not without mommy guilt. Since we'd been supplementing with formula, we just went to full formula. There were many complications, but I'm trying to keep this short.

If you have any questions please just ask.

Welcome to the board! I'm Nicole, mom to Eleanor (15 months) and another little one due this August. I feel like I can relate to a lot of your story... we also struggled with infertility and some family crises as we TTC Eleanor, and I was induced due to gestational hypertension. As an aside- we were able to conceive this baby without fertility treatments, and I hope you have an easier journey to your second baby! I'm sure you won't feel judged on this board and will fit right in!

Thanks! I will sure try. We are an exceptionally busy family!! Some of the things we have struggled through require frequent long trips w/lots of driving involved. We are approaching purchasing a new "car" and only having a xamount of money to spend. So I'm doing some research. Trying to find what we can afford. We also have an idea of somethings we are looking for. We would REALLY like to afford something with 3rd row seating. Otherwise I think we will just be upgrading DH to something newer nicer. It would mean more expenditure on gas, but would give us the family space we need to do things.
