New here, not under the best circumstances

Hey ladies,

While I should be overjoyed with the news of my 5th, and final, baby, Two days after my BFP, my husband left us. I'm praying he comes home, and he agreed to counseling, so in the meanwhile I could really use some non-judgemental new friends. In the past, iVillage was a great support network, and I hope I'll make some lifelong friends here.

My kids are 13 (girl), 8, 5 and almost 3 (all boys). I'm currently a nursing student, and plan to get my masters in Midwifery care. I've had med-free births, preemies, and NICU stays. In short, I'm sort of a been there, done that pro when it comes to this whole pregnancy thing. Please feel free to pick my brain. :)

I'll be 35 when I deliver, and I'm due June 30th. Secretly hoping for pink, but I love my boys and would be overjoyed with another.

I look forward to getting to know everyone! :)
