Hi my name is Jen. I'm totally new to any mom group. I was browsing online to see which ones people recommend and cafemom was one of the top ones. To answer the questions.

1. How old are your kids? Do you have boys or girls?
I have a stepson who is 3, a son we lost in 2011 who would 2 now, and also just lost a baby girl in December.

2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now?
I grew up in northern Minnesota out in the sticks, and I miss the country very much. My husband and I currently live near Saint Cloud, MN.

3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other?
This ones kind of a long story but the short version... He's the brother of one of my best friends from high school and 10 years later we found each other and fell in love.

4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself?
My favorite thing is to put on my headphones and read. Completely tune out the real world for a while.

5. What's on your mind today?
Well, I just found out that I am pregnant again. And since I gave birth early with the first 2 pregnancies and lost both babies I am terrified! We've decided not to tell our families yet, with the problems we had in the past we don't want to stress them out. The plan is if I can make it to 24 weeks without any complications we're going to tell everybody. I'm hoping to find people to talk to, since I can't tell my family right now.

Welcome to cafemom. I'm glad you have found the site. It really is a great place!

Sorry to hear about your losses. Does your dr have any idea why it is happening? I hope this pregnancy has a happy ending for you.

Hi Fellow Mommy's,

My name is Jess and this is the first mommy group I've joined.  I'm a Navy Wife, mother of a toddler and soon to be new addition in three weeks, and a career woman.  When I get the chance I work on finishing my degree.  Life is hectic :)  My husband and family are my world so I'm looking forward to hear how other wives and mom's do it too!

1. We have a two year old boy and will have a new addition in three (or less) weeks. We don't know the sex of the new baby so the anticipation is killing me! :)

2. I'm a world-wide military kid so no place was "home" until we settled back at DC in the 80's where I lived for 20 years.  We've recently moved to TX on assignment so this is home for now :)

3. My husband and I met on-line!  Of all things, we figured out that we worked in the buildings right across the street from each other on the same base.  So we met for lunch one fateful day and have been inseparable since. :)

4. Time to myself... what's that? :)  Something I need to carve more of for sure.  Since the pregnancy, any time to myself this last trimester is spent off my feet watching tv or catching up online. I love reading, getting pedicures, sewing, and finding new recipes to make for the family.

5. 8 puppies and two surgeries are on my mind today.  We're desperately trying to sell 8 puppies so we're continuing that effort today.  We're also going to get the rest of the house ready for when when his father and my father visit to lend us helping hands.  We're facing two surgeriges in two weeks; my husband's back surgery in a little over a week and my c-section in a little over two weeks. Did I mention it's always hectic here? :)
