Hi! I live in SRQ and am expecting my 1st child in Jan 2012 (I'm 3 months today). I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello. My boyfriend of 4 years and I recently found out that we are expecting...a big surprise (I missed my Depo shot by 2 weeks!) After calling into work twice in two weeks, I realized that the "flu" bug wasn't going away and ran into the doc concerned about why my immune system wasn't kicking in. When I found out I was pregnant - I was initially shocked, scared, and worried it would impact my career negatively. But - within no time, I felt a deep connection with the baby and fell in love with what is forming inside of me.
In any case, I am 27 years old and it has been very hard to find close friends in this area. I do have a few, but now that I'm pregnant, it really does put a whole new spin on things. I could really use a few good girlfriends and was wondering if any of you know of any good networking events where I might be able to meet other women going through similar circumstances?
Thanks for your ideas and advice!
