turn  Hey y'all!
I've posted before about my MS, but this has to do with a TOTALLY unrelated topic, but I don't know whom else to ask. My hubbie and I learned this past weekend that our daughter is PREGGERS!!!! about 6 weeks along (and yes, she's been married for 3 years). She's as much of a research maniac as I am, so any ideas about web sites she (though, to be quite honest, mostly ME!!!) can check out?? She's really smart (she's a teacher after all) and has scoured WEBMD already. But I think I need to (without interfering, of course!) check out stuff as well. Our ONLY child is having her first child!!! I've already been to Baby Gap, just to gawk.
Sorry this is not relevent to MS, but I did not know where else to get info. Thanks!!!

Thank you Rhonda!

Our daughter, her name is "Stef," is actually my step-daughter; hubbie got custody, and for good reason. Her "mom" is somewhere, but Stef has considered me her "absolute" Mom since even before her Dad and I got married. I know this is way too personal, but what are we here for anyway? I've helped raised her since she was five, and you can BET I am going to spoil that baby to NO END!!
Thanks, and will keep you posted. Also, my MS has not progressed in the past year. Double Cheer!!!

Congratulations to you and your daughter! I love this website:
They allow you to enter your due date and e-mail address and will send you an e-mail every week telling you how your baby is growing- what parts are developing that particular week, how big your baby is getting, etc.  They also have tons of other resources.  You can even set up a baby name poll for friends and family.  Very neat.  Have fun!!!

Hey guys:

Thanks for all of the support and info, which I have forwarded on to mama-to-be. We learned yesterday that now she is all hysterical about contracting something called "fifth disease," which is primarily a kids' thing but can (rarely, occording to my research) cause complications. But she's been a teacher for several years and may already have developed an immunity. She's going for blood work and I am optimistic she will find reassurance.
Again, thanks!
