If I could change one thing about my pregnancy experience, I would have tried to meet more moms while I was pregnant and get a support group in place. When I moved to Atlanta in May 2009, I was a newlywed in a new city. By July, we found out we were pregnant. I slept most of my first trimester and really didn’t get out and socialize. Since I wasn’t working, I also didn’t get the chance to meet many new people. But if you’re in a new city or among the first of your friends to get pregnant, you and your little one need to find a supportive group of moms and babies.
I’ve been a member of several Meetup groups for mom in my area/county in Atlanta. They’re usually based on the age of the children too, so playing together is more conducive.
Comment below: How have you found your own support group? Are you a member of a neighborhood play group?
I’ve been fortunate that as an Atlanta mom blogger I’m invited to events that A.J. and I can attend together. We’ve taken trips to Disney Social Media Moms in Orlando and recently took a tour of Emory Point shopping district. I had the pleasure of taking the tour with the Georgia Social Media Moms.
