Hello all!

Well, I thought I'd say hello. There are so many ladies here whom I know and love, and those of you who I don't know yet seem like wonderful women, too, so I wanted to jump in and join!

I have a pretty long story, but suffice it to say, I am very scared this pregnancy. Mostly my overly pessimistic self, though, and hopefully I have no real reason to worry. I will be 17 weeks tomorrow, due 9/21, and spent the first 2 months fairly miserable, and every time I sat down to join this group (after I finally got over the worst of my fear), I kind of fell asleep instead... Then we went to Japan for a month, and I didn't have much internet time there, so now here I am!

Looking forward to getting to know you all better, and sharing this journey with you!
