Hello everyone!

I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Jennifer, 23, expecting my first baby August 26. I would love to connect with other moms expecting around the same time as me. DH and I TTC for 4 years, (no thanks to infertility from both of us) but with surgery and lots of prayer we finally got our BFP! I am so excited to start this journey, and thanking the Lord above that I have had a lifetime of experience taking care of children. I raised a much younger brother and I have worked in both daycare and pre-k settings for years. I know it's different when it's your own child but I'm hoping my experience will somewhat help me be a better mother. Anyway, I hope to make friends here with you ladies, and hear your stories and get advice. Thanks for reading! :)

My husband is Army AGR and we is based out of Orlando, but we live in the Tampa area. He is a Warrant Officer. Why are you high risk?

Erika, I'm high risk because of problems with my uterus, including a recent surgery and it being put in a sling, as well as a weak cervix. PCOS and endometriosis both hurt my fertility and started affecting other organs so it's been hard getting pregnant.

My hubby was offered a job as Warrant Officer but he decided that 9 years in was enough and he wanted to move on to new things like finally being able to get his degree and start a business.

Congrats! How exciting! Are you going to find out the gender of your baby? Have you thought of any names yet? How far along are you.

I'm 17 weeks along, and we find out the gender in 2 weeks. We have Grant and Grace as our top contenders for names but nothing set in stone just yet.
