Hi ladies! I'm new here so thought I'd introduce myself before jumping in!
I'm Sherry, age 35, from Canada. Due Feb 21 with our first little one; we don't know yet what we're having but hubby and I are both leaning towards finding out. We've been married 9 yrs; I was first pregnant in late 2007 but had a m/c at 7wks. Following a few years of on&off trying, I had surgery for endometriosis in early March, then gasped out loud at the sight of a BFP in June this year! I guess it's taken me a while to join here because even though I'm at 21 weeks this week, I'm still really nervous every day.
However, six days ago I felt Baby moving for the first time, and have been loving the feeling all week! Makes it feel so real
When I was pg before I found these boards really welcoming and helpful so thought I'd come back. While I realize my due date could put me into the March group, I'm really hoping it will be Feb (although have mixed feelings about the possibility of the 29th! eek!)
We'll be having Baby in a hospital but will be using a doula; I'm really looking forward to the support for both hubby and me. Glad we've made the decision to use one.
Also - as you can tell by my photo, my only "baby" so far is one (admittedly, very spoiled) 8-year-old cat who, unfortunately, is not very fond of little kids. Any advice re helping kitty adjust to Baby (both before & after Baby is here!) is most welcome! thanks.
Thanks in advance for welcoming me and my little Lovebug
