Martial Status: Married! We got married January 9 2010 after 6 years of dating!
Children: (living and deceased) I'm expecting our first at some time in the next 4 weeks!
Sahm/wohm/wahm: I'm currently on maternity leave from my public servant job. I'm a lawyer but I ended up deciding to work for the government instead of in private law firms because I thought that it would be a more family friendly environment. As it was, my current workplace treated me appallingly and I ended up going on maternity leave early. So even though officially I'm going back to work in February, chances are that I won't. Even though legally they cant force me to work full time until my child is in full time school, they were already murmuring that I wouldn't be allowed to come back to work for less than 4 full days a week! I'm not interested in leaving my 9 month old with strangers to work basically full time for people that treat me really badly. So if we can financially manage it, I'll not go back. I'm currently undertaking a Masters of Teaching part time by correspondence. I'm hoping to get it done in 3 years and then when my son starts at school is when I start at school!

More about me: I'm a friendly girl who is pretty family oriented. I am the eldest of 5 children and I live about 2 minutes drive from my parents house. I have dinner with my parents and my in laws at least once a week. Our baby will be the first grandchild! I've struggled with anxiety and depression in the past and I'm certain that this means that postnatal depression is in my future. I'm home alone a lot these days and I doubt this'll change much when the baby arrives so I am looking for people I can communicate with I guess!! :)
