Trying to find a great pregnancy web site can be difficult!
I have been searching and searching. I have looked high, and I have looked low. I have been to the valley of the shadow of death and back! Yes sisters I am talking about finding that all important pregnancy web site. One to post, chat and meet new moms. After weeks of searching I gave up and decided to just join here.
My criteria was simple. Must have an easy interface, and must not have teenage moms rambling about how there boyfriends did them wrong.
Well, it isn't that easy. Why should I have to put up with their whining? " Pregnant at 16...please help ", " 12 Pregnant and addicted to crack" it goes on and on.
Why do I care? Because I grew up on the idea that I would go to college, get a job, meet Mr.Right, get married, then have a baby. I played it safe, I kept my legs crossed till I was no longer a teen, then after that I used birth control and lots of it!
I had a dream. A dream that one day I would have tea and shop with other late 20 to late 30 something moms like myself. A dream that we would take delight in our pregnancy, a gift, a blessing, and beautiful. That teenage pregnancy was something that one was not supposed to be proud of! After all, how can living off welfare or benefits, not providing a stable home for your baby, not being able to give the emotional support the baby needs because teens themselves need emotional support as well, or having a baby to spite anyone, how is that a beautiful thing? How can having a baby because one thinks that a baby will love them and they need love an answer?
I feel that pregnancy is no longer the right of the goddess that it once was. That the goddess is competing with pretend, fake, want-to-be goddessettes. :evil:
