New to the site :)

Hello Everyone!

I am brand spanking new here... from Ottawa, Ontario, and 26 years old pregnant with my first, with a due date of January 28th, 2013

I'd throw in a bunch of neat information here, but... I don't really know much of what's going on at this point LOL I'm hoping to learn a ton from you ladies, and I love the concept of a due-date specific board - Makes me feel a little less out-of-loop, and a little more normal, after reading a few posts already

I was diagnosed with MTCD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease) about 6 years ago, so this is a high risk pregnancy (as will any future ones), but I'm trying to not let that scare me too much, and I'm just trying to enjoy the pregnancy for what it is - a blessing.

Thus far (and I'm very thankful), my pregnancy symptoms have been few and far between. No Morning Sickness or anything of the sort - a few food loves (dill pickles and applesauce) - I think the biggest thing right now is my extreme fatigue.

As I am a first timer, any tips, tricks, hints, everything... will be very much appreciated!

Looking forward to meeting everyone

Hi! :waves:

Your first! How exciting It's so nice having a group of ladies who are all going through the same things at the same time. There's also a few of us high-riskers too. If you have a facebook account, come join us over there. It's much more active than this board. There's instructions on how to be added in one of the threads on this page.

Hi! Welcome! These ladies are great and I really enjoy their support and advice. I'm baking #2 with a dd of Jan 27th so we're pretty much @ the same point pregnancy wise. Any help I can be, don't be shy.
