MayFlower Mommies, please feel free to reply to this thread with a post telling something about yourself. If you'd like, also include a picture of yourself in the post. (We'd done this when we were pregnant, but we've a number of ladies join us since then. Also, our lives have definitely changed since then!)
SO/DH Name: Shawn
Children(s) Names & Ages: Allan Michael who is 7 (11.20.99) and Avryal Nycole who is 4 (5.6.03).
A little about ME:
I was born Phoenix Arizona but was raised in Grand Rapids Michigan from the age of 8 until I turned 20, when I then decided to move back to Phoenix to be closer to my sister and make up for the years we missed as kids (18yrs) and with my real father (13yrs). Been back in Arizona since 2001.
I am engaged to Shawn and have been for almost 5yrs , we got engaged the day we found out we were expecting Avryal September 13th, 2002. We were only together a month when we concieved her and she was planned we started everything very fast.
I enjoy webdesign and graphics (DUH! LOL) and I am a SAHM (stay at home mother) which I feel is the best thing for both my children right now as they both have health conditions that really need my attention.
I have been a member here at Pregnancy.org for almost 5 years, I joined September 18th, 2002. I am also the Signature & Graphics Assitant here at Pregnancy.org (AKA Siggy Police lol).
If you wanna know more about me feel free to PM me and I will include it here .
My name is Erin and I will be 25 on May 12th. I am married to Shawn who is going to be 32 in June. We have been married 4 years on March 28th, but living together for over 6 years! We have 2 beautiful daughters, Emily Victoria born June 8th 2000 and Lauren Elizabeth born at home on May 16th 2003!
I can't wait for spring to get here so I can get out with the girls more!

My name is Kathleen (Kat) and my hubby is Michael. Mike is a programmer working for Aol broadband. I'm a stay at home mom, but I foster kitties (and have a few of my own). I enjoy photography and painting but I also love art in most forms. We were blessed with our first child, Jakob Ethan, on April 30, 2004 after 2 months of bedrest for preterm labor. I'm not here very often due to dh's wacky work hours, but I do try to keep up by reading at least. I always love to hear from anyone on AIM/Msn etc., though! I love my family, friends, and of course my kitties (I'm always seeming to find lil' strays).
Hi, my name is Tommi. My DH Brad and I have been married since October 2001. We're both 36. Both Brad and I have always lived in Pennsylvania. We feel very blessed, indeed, to have added a son to our family. To our surprise, Drew Wesley arrived three weeks early on April 17, 2003. Two days later, we returned home as a family of three. Our little guy has been the joy of our lives and is now the prince of the family!
On Valentine's Day 2005 we found out I was pregnant again. On October 25, our darling daughter Nora Elizabeth was born! We were then a happy family of four!
August 2006 ~ Much to our surprise, we found out we were working on #3 who was due on DS's birthday! However DD #2 decided she wanted her own birthday, and Lydia Hope decided to enter the world two weeks early on April 3.
We are now a very happy family of five!
Hey! I am Jailynn (2 married to Jamie (35) since April 21, 2001.
Our Mayflower Kylee Rayne arrived on her due date May 16, 2003 and is a sweet & strong willed baby doll! Kylee had a heart condition PFO which has closed on its own (although, it didn't close completely it is a small enough hole to not be of concern so she still has the murmur but doesn't have to take any precautions for the rest of her life.)
Our August Love Bug Kyrstin Renay was born a day after her due date August 31, 2005 and is as sweet and loving as her big sister. Kyrstin appears to be free and clear of any heart issues.
I'm now a SAHM which is a little weird for me but I love it!!! I don't think I could be any more blessed than I already am! Oh yea, we are in CA too
Hello! My name is Pamela and I will be 32 in June. I got married on October 13, 2002 to Ian, who will be 33 in August! We have 3 kids: Sabreena Rose (born August 5, 2000), Madilynn Eve (born May 23, 2003), and Zackkery Scott (born October 11, 2005). Sabreena was from a previous relationship, but Ian has been 'daddy' to her since she was barely one years old. We live in Vancouver, WA...where we moved to in August 2004. I was born and raised in California (The San Fernando Valley...just North of Los Angeles) and we still visit there at least twice a year. I graduated from California State University, Northridge in June 2004...with a BA in Child & Family Development.
Ian is a Special Education Resource Teacher at a nearby school district and I am a SAHM. We were *surprised* to find out that I am pregnant again, due 7/27/07. Even though it was totally unplanned (I was on the pill), I believe that everything happens for a reason and I am beyond thrilled now. Besides my family, I love to take pictures, scrapbook, go to sporting events, drive long distances, and relax on the computer. My family is my life though!
Thanks for letting me share!
My name is Lesley and I am 29 this April. My Dh is called Andreas and he is 33 yrs old. We've been married 10 yrs this September. We had our first baby boy Loukas, on May 7th 2003. We live in Cyprus, I'm English and my hubby is Greek Cypriot.
Currently I work part time in my firends photography studio, but from September I will be going back to work, as a Nursery school teacher.
My name is Christen, I'm 27. I'm married to Brad who is also 27. I'm originally from San Diego. My family moved to Mississippi when I was in 12th grade. After graduation I moved back to San Diego for a few years then got bored so I moved to Phoenix. I had my first child Amber while I was living there and I also met my first husband. After phoenix I moved to Eugene, OR then to Madison, WI (I've moved alot!!). While in Wisconsin I became a hairdresser. After a few years there I got a divorce and got back in touch with Brad. SO I packed up Amber and we moved back here to Mississippi. Brad and I got married June 15,2002 (also my birthday) and we now have Ally and I'm a stay at home mom but still do hair out of my house.
Kinda funny because Brad and I were together in highschool and when I gave him the whole "if you love me let me go"speech. We were eachothers first love! We eventually lost touch and didn't talk for almost 7 yrs!! A week after I filed my divorce papers from my first husband I got an email from Brad!! I knew it was meant to be after that!
Sorry if this all jumps around, I'm not to good at writing things!
