I want to take some time to introduce myself as I am new to this. My name is Anna. I am 23 and I am married with a 3 month old little boy, Lucas Alexander, who was born on March 12, 2009. The past year has been a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. Juggling work, college, and doctors appointments became hectic. I never imagined becoming pregnant at 23. I was so unprepared and nervous. As I progressively grew larger and the due date approached I had grown, as a person, from a carefree young adult into a loving mother-to-be. My husband is in the Navy so throughout most of my pregnancy I flew solo. What I would have given for a back rub after work! I had the help of my family and a few friends which made it easier. I went through my crazy nesting phase and drove pretty much everyone crazy. As the big day was upon me, I was induced a week early at 4 cm. I labored for 13 hours and pushed for 20 minutes (which was a horrible idea). Patience is a virtue!! Before I could believe it...a little dark haired, chubby, and adorable baby boy was placed on my chest. He stared up at me and that's when I knew I had just accomplished the greatest feat in my life. It was all worth it. Now, he is a happy, energetic, and very smart 3 month old learning to sit up and roll over. Motherhood has been awesome!!
