Hi everyone! I'm new here, My na,e is Kari, Im 25 from a small town in Illinois near the St. Louis Metro are. I am married to the most amazing man who has ever walked the earth( as I'm sure we all think of our hubbies) lol. We have been married 4 years and just last night decided that sometime mid to late 2014 we want to start trying for our first child.Although the only practice we have Is two 4 year old fur babies Albert and Boo Boo. (both Amazing with kids) ``
It is a very exciting decision, as for along time he has been very "unready" so for him to be on board is HUGE!!
So until that time comes, I of course will be occupied and motivated to do whatever it takes to prepare my home and body to conceive, carry and give birth to a healthy baby.
My goal is to lose the 50 pounds I've gained in the 4 years I've been married and just overall be healthier. Not only for my husband and future child, but to feel better about myself and just feel better all around. I will be making an appointment with a gyno next month for my first REAL pap smear, as i have always been very scared of even the thought lol. But i have a good friend who is going to go with me to help me get over it lol.Its an odd phobia, I know i should have been doing this all along.
I would love to make some good friend who may be in the same situation or recently had babies to help me through my journey, as it has been my dream to be a mother my whole life. and now that my husband is on board, I am FINALLY motivated, but at times i need that push to tell me to drop the cookie or get off the couch.
