I'm Katie! My boyfriend and I are expecting a beautiful baby BOY in December!
This is both of ours first child, and we are beyond excited, but also scared in many ways, and here to learn!!
I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, so I have been extremely nauseous and haven't been able to keep much down. I am doing better than I was at first, though! I am very excited to hold my tiny, precious baby boy in my arms. <3 Feel free to parent tank me if you'd like to talk!
Breast Feeding: I have decided to try breat feeding! I have a lot of support from my boyfriend and family, although I don't know a single person that has been successful with it! I have a breat feeding class on August 7th. I'm really looking forward to learning more about it and how it's all done. I will be purchasing a breast pump, but not sure yet which kind is best. I've been doing a lot of research. If you have any suggestions about them, that'd be awesome! Also, If you breast feed, it'd be nice if you could share some information or tips with me! Just someone to talk to about it helps a lot as well!
