Hi everyone! I am a soon-to-be first time mom, due April 14, 2011 and I am also new to the message boards. I guess I just wanted to say "hi" and introduce myself. I am excited and of course, a little scared about labor. I plan to go all-natural and if anyone has any tips or suggestions on this route...please, please let me know! ☺ Anyway, enough about me! Hope to meet y'all soon and learn more new things!
Congratulations! In the next few weeks you will welcome your precious new baby and this message board will be even more fun for you to use. There is some great advice on here about potty training, sleep training, breastfeeding, making your own baby food...you name it! Ask you best questions or jump in with your own advice! I am glad you are here!
Thanks Julie and Jess for the welcome! ☺ I do know that our baby is a girl and we have chosen to name her "Ayla." Which means "oak tree." I am hoping to go into labor at any time now! I have gone to a childbirth class, my husband and mother are both going to be "coaches," and I feel as prepared as one can be walking into outer space (aka. the unknown). I guess I am just trying to psych myself up for the event! I will totally be checking out the pregnancy boards next, thanks for the tip Jess! (...oh and I love, love your picture!! Horses are so wonderful!) I think the only thing I wish I would have gotten more experience with is breathing tactics. I'll be keeping you posted for sure! *waiting on Ayla*
