    Post New here

    Hello all,
    So for the last day or so I've been browsing your page, and before I introduce myself I have to tell you how impressed I am with how kind and supportive you seem to be for each other. That is exactly what I am looking for in a forum.
    Anyways, so about me. I don't have a monumental story, I guess it's just pretty ordinary. My husband and I have been married for about 4.5 years. Great years! We always knew we eventually wanted babies but for the longest time it was like "ok where can we eat where there will be no kids... or where can we vacation where it's mostly adults". AND THEN that biological clock started ticking and I find myself cooing at every little baby and bawling in the theater if child so much as scraped his knee in the movie(ok maybe not that crazy).Anyways it became very clear that it was time. We built a new house and immediately afterwards got pregnant. Can't ask for much more!!! My edd is Nov 14th. And we're SO excited! Looking forward to sharing high points and I'm sure some low points with all of you here.

    Congrats!!

    I totally understand your switch from looking for adult-oriented places to eating up all things baby. Been there!

    Hi Laurie! Amazing to have you here! I'm so happy you got your house built just in time! Bleh, we are trying to start ours...it's been a pain. The city is giving us all kinds of crap, but luckily my DH has been on top of things. How long did it take you all? I would soooooo love to be in our new home before #4 comes but I think I'm dreaming, lol.

    Welcome. My dh and I waited almost 4 years after we were married to have children. And we did the whole adult only thing for a while. So I understand. This is our third and we enjoy the change in life. You'll learn to love kid things and vacation spots too. Congrats..

    Thanks ladies for kind and welcoming words!
    Kelly- YAY for middle of November!
    Brittany- We built a 1650 sqft ranch with a full basement in 4 months. It really didn't take long... There's a 3000 sqft two story going up right next to us... and I would say it's going up just about as quick as ours, so I'm not sure if size matters (in this case anyways ) . what was horrible was trying to find where we wanted to build. that took over 6 months and we were living with my MIL in a 1300 sqft house (11 months total UGH). WOW.... last time we ever doing that! If we had kids there is NO way we could have done it . Overall though the building process was great and it went up SO quick! Good luck to you!

    Ummm, hopefully. I normally paste a picture into my paint area on the laptop, shrink it, then save it as JPEG. I use my tablet now for everything so I don't know if someone will have better way.


    That's an awesome timeline! We purchased our property back in Oct. 2013, then in January we tore the old really bad house down. Christmas would be amazing but I'm doubting that too.

    Oh, to fit your tickers, after pasting them into siggy, just highlight the whole thing then select size 1.

    Thanks Misty seems like a really positive place .
    Hmm.... still can't get my siggy to work. it's just showering the code, not the picture. I'm not good at this kind of stuff I guess. LOL
