Im Alyson. I live in Western North Carolina. I have a soon to be 2 year old, he'll be 2 in May. Most of my friends are back in Louisiana where I grew up..."Just a small town girl" I dont have any other parents to talk to since my work schedule is insane. My husband and I started out young..the way we all do. We married when he was 20 and in the military and I was just 18. I found out I was pregnant on my 19th birthday and here we are....almost 2 years later and I couldnt imagine 1 single day without the 2 loves of my life at my side. My sons name is Caleb, every once in a while we will refer to him as C.J. He is very independent, he is going to do it when he is ready and nobody is going to rush him. He was even 6 days late being born....I like to put it like this...." they said because of my husbands work environment that there was a very small chance of us having a boy ...the doc said ur due May 18....Caleb said nuh-uh!......4 days later the doc said we will induce you on the 25th....Caleb said no u wont....the doc said he will weigh around 7 pounds......." My (son) was born naturally and by naturally i mean with and epidural....after my water broke just after midnight on the 24th of May. He weighed 9 pounds and 15 ounces. What can I say, at least he gets his stubbornness honestly.
I hope all is well with you and your family, I am new here like you looking for some online Mom friends and support help with life's issues. I feel like we can all lean on each other and lend a supporting ear and heart. I am very happy for you and your family. I would love to talk with you.
I know how you feel about not knowing any other moms. I just had a little girl a month ago and feel completely cut off from the world. All I have to talk to is family...and that gets old fast, lol. Im 22 from Illinois and the girls my age are still livin it up at parties every night while Im at home with husband and baby. We started off in a similar way. My husband and I got engaged December of 07. He was 20 and I was 21. That summer while he was at Annual Trainning (hes in the army) I found out I was pregnant. We moved our wedding up to October '08 and had our little baby this Feb. I love that I have a little girl, but it sucks not having any one to relate to...my friends still have their cute, perfect little bodies while Im 2 pant sizes bigger and feel like an elephant, lol. I just read about this site in a magazine, hopefully we'll both find people to relate to=-)
Thanks, Its April and we have actually been trying for another baby for over a month. I guess since it happend so fast thei first time im a little discouraged at the timespan. Yeah we named him Caleb Joseph (CJ) Joseph is both me and my husbands grandfathers names so we killed 2 birds with one stone. I want a little girl so badly it hurts, I just wanna hold little Zoey in my arms..(the girl name we came up with). Surprisingly my weight went down extremely fast i was actually really worried and went to the doctor about it..high metab. will do wonders but i really dont want it to sound like im braging i know alot of moms have a hard time.I think breastfeeding really helpd me lose a good portion of the weight. That was the absolute best thing i ever decided to do. Yeah i deffinetely feel like i missed out sometimes even though i love my boys. Most of my friends are singe and in college. I remember getting so frustraighted trying to find a friend that didnt have kids and now im throwing myself at the ones that do. please keep up the emails i really enjoy having someone to talk to.
hey.. i'm 20, my husband is almost 22. we got married in february of last year.. he was in the Army; got out in December. The doctors told me over and over I could not get pregnant, of course it turned out that I was 8 weeks at that time. At 39 weeks they told me Jaden would be at least 9 lbs... at 41 weeks, they induced me... she didnt want to leave mommy's belly though. I had a c section after 4 hours of labor where nothing happened basically. They even broke my water. She weight 7 lbs 12 3/4 ounces... So I was pretty shocked when I saw how tiny she was compared to what I was expecting. We're trying for another baby also now . Hopefully it's quick like the last one.. =] Almost all of my friends had babies at young ages; but me and my family recently relocated to Virginia and so I know no one here. It's horrible..
