The Mommy Club

Everyone says that women talk to each other about everything. That might be true throughout life, but for me, it didn’t really begin until I became a mother. Now that I’ve been through the whole pregnancy and childbirth thing, conversational doors seem to open everywhere I turn.

There’s a not-so-secret society that women enter once they become pregnant for the first time: the mommy club. For the most part, you don’t get a choice about whether or not you want to join. That’s probably because when you first find out you’re growing a little creature inside you, you likely don’t want to share the ins and outs — the joys and grossness — of that experience with women who are basically strangers.

Don’t worry, you’ll grow out of it. (Or should I say into it?) And we’ll initiate you anyway.

By the time your son or daughter arrives, you’ll be a full-fledged member of the mommy club, eager to welcome other new mommies-to-be into the fold.

The great thing about the mommy club, at least for me, is that I have a network of women who are not afraid to help each other answer questions ranging from the mundane to the completely weird. From What was your baby’s first food? to Is it normal to pee your pants when you’re pregnant? Other members of the mommy club are always there to help each other through the adventure of motherhood.

Being part of the mommy club has helped me to focus on happy.

    Hold on. Do you seriously pee yourself when pregnant.

    Oops – I guess I let the cat out of the bag on that one. So… yes. Yes, you do. But only a little 😉
