I forget how long I’ve been reading here now, but I registered the day my husband opened up this page and asked me, ‘have you seen this?’ I’ve been here daily ever since, after reading at least 5 front pages worth of stories/dairies.
I’m 26, and due with my first in August. I’ve mentioned a miscarriage in a couple of comments.. I’m actually due 8 days before we found out about my miscarriage last August, at 22 weeks. I’m not really sure how I feel about possibly going into labor on THAT day, but I figure if my daughter wants to give me a happy memory for that day I won’t complain. This pregnancy is going along perfectly though, for which I am eternally grateful.
All that aside, my husband and I currently live in Manhattan, but I still call myself a Californian. I was born in Oregon, but spent about half my life so far in Cali, so that’s home for me. I grew up in a small town called Yreka, and if you’ve ever driven up to Oregon or beyond on I-5, you’ve spent 5-10 minutes driving through my hometown.
My husband and I are celebrating our first anniversary in 2 weeks. He got me reading DKos last year, but for whatever reason I didn’t even register for the first few months. I read a ton, but I don’t post much – only two comments! MT feels more comfortable for me right now, but I can see myself venturing out more there eventually.
I was working on a degree in history (my 3rd major) last year, but took time off to heal. I’m lucky enough to be able to stay home with our daughter once she’s here. I look forward to getting back to school eventually though. I hope to work in a natural history museum one day, perhaps as a curator.
Thanks for allowing me the space to ramble a bit. 😉
