Hi, and welcome to my Moms Page. I want to take the time to thank those behind ivillage and, specifically, ParentsPlace,
both of which are a great resource for families. I have met so many great people online, especially through the ParentsPlace
bulletin boards. I am a "graduate" of the Pregnancy After a Loss board and the Bottlefeeding board.
During my pregnancies,
it was pretty easy going physically (no morning sickness, yeah!), but was quite the opposite emotionally! When I was pregnant
with Ryan, it was a pregnancy following a miscarriage, so I was worried enough before the added pregnancy complications of
gestational diabetes and PIH (Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.) The women I met on the ParentsPlace boards were so supportive
and encouraging; it was great to connect with other women that were worrying about the same things, and share hopes, fears,
After having Ryan and beginning to follow the Bottlefeeding board shortly thereafter, I was lucky enough
to "meet" another woman who'd had a son born the exact same day as Ryan! Needless to say, we were anxious to compare notes
on our little guys. We were happy to discover we had a lot of other things in common, too, and quickly became friends through
our constant email exchanges. I am so glad we met them.
I have made quite a few on-line friends, and now that I have
been a parent for a few years, I spend more time on the ParentsPlace and ivillage bulletin boards related to my own personal
interests, like cooking and baking.
I hope you'll stop by this page again, because I hope to add some new stuff just for
and/or about moms. Thanks for stopping by!
