Hello everyone!! My name is Bekki :) I am married to my wonderful husband Phillip and we have been married for 4 1/2 years :) we currently have one child, a boy named Edward Joseph (named after his grandpas). We call him Ej for short and he is 3. Cannot believe where the time has gone with him. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with our 2nd child, a little girl who is due in Jan. I grew up in California, in Norwalk and other areas and now currently live in Stuttgart Germany because my husband is in the US Army and this is where we are stationed. My husband and I met online when I was living with my cousin and working for her and he was deployed. It was love at first sight :) we have had our ups and downs, but we are staying strong thru it all and making it work. When I have time to myself, I like to play games, read a book or do puzzle books. I don't really have a lot of time to myself tho. Lol. But I make it work. What's on my mind today? Hmmm, well, that my little girl is moving all the time and I love it, but worried about the pregnancy complications I am having that I never had with my son. Although I keep a positive mind about it all, it's still really worrisome and scary for me.

Good Morning Ladies, Thanks for the Welcome you gave me. My name is Betty and I am married for 27 years.

I have 5 young men, --:  from 25, twins 23,  17 and the baby is 15yrs.  I treasure the time with the children because they grew up really fast and I'm wondering where did the time go.  One thing I can say  is I try not to let the kids come between my husband and I( those of us who have husbands) and I try to mentor kids who have one parent.  We all need a little love.  Be kind to yourselves and to each other because life is too short. Thanks for your kind welcome once again and have a great day to all.

Hello, Bekki! Welcome to CafeMom! How wonderful it is to read about your happy marriage. I hope that you and the baby get through the complications well.  What kind of puzzles do you like to do? I do sudoku.

Hi. My name is Taryn and I live in Florida. I have a little girl who is three years old. She is the light in my life. I am married and met my husband in high school. My time to myself is generally spent with my family after work, but I do enjoy walking and exercising. I'm here today because I've been trying to get pregnant with our second child for about two years now. I got pregnant on the first try with my daughter and expected no issues with a second go around. I was so wrong. It's a struggle every day to try and sustain hope and try not to be devastated about the reality that I may not have another. I'm on month 2 of clomid and have a very frustrated husband who isn't into the whole thing. I feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders and am completely overwhelmed with all of the ovulation testing, basal temp checking, timing inter course and trying to stay grounded and not let it all consume my every waking minute. I finally decided that I either need to talk or read about what others are going through like me so that I don't feel all alone and maybe draw some tips on what works for other women that I can apply to myself. Very long son story, but I appreciate any of your stories and suggestions as I become more involved.
