Hello!! My name is Brandi and I just signed up to this site.  I truly believe in having support from other women that are going through the same things you are experiencing :)  

I am 25 and my Fiance and I are getting married May 11th, 2013.  While planning the wedding, in February we found out that we are expecting our first child.  Our due date is October 6th, 2013.  We decided to push the wedding up from August to May so that I'm not too big for an outdoor summer wedding :)

I'm very open, honest and excited to make some new friends.  The people in your life are not always going through what you are, but there are always outlets like this to find support and make a new friend or two!

Welcome to the group! The first year is often the hardest for couples since you're adjusting to so much. He could be jealous of the attention you give your son. How old is your son? After your son's in bed, give your husband extra attention so he knows you've missed him during the day - that can go a long way towards helping him understand that you're not ignoring him, just your son needs you more. ;)
