Hello..
My name is D. and I am new to Mckinney. I am 19, and just moved here from California. I just got married to my husband Vince, 21. I know we are very young, but we came from a small town where we knew eachother since preschool. We both graduated early, and started college early. We knew we were in love, and wanted to start a family together. We got married in April, and moved out here to Mckinney (much more affordable than Cali :) We love it out here, however I do not know anyone, and we just found out I am pregnant. I am almost 7 weeks. I am really missing my mom right now, and would like to maybe meet some friends, or other moms. This is sort of a big thing, and it would be nice to have a "mom" out here to help me through it, lol. If anyone is looking for a friend or a "daughter" lol, let me know! any new moms, or pregnant woman. THanks!

What can I do next?

Hi D.! Welcome to TX! I'm M., mom to 6 children. My husband and I also moved to TX from CA when we were first married. I love TX. I grew up in MN so I didn't have my mom around when I was having children either, but dh's parents lived in the area here. We moved away from here right after my 3rd was born so I had the rest without any family around at all. I know what it is like to not know anyone around.

I have a daughter that isn't too far apart in age from you. She'll be 18 in June. We live in Plano just off of 121 (so not too far from McKinney). As you can tell, I've had lots of experience having babies so if you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

My e-mail address is [email protected]____.com If you write to my e-mail address, I'll send you a link to my blog where you can read a little about my family (and see some photos).

Hi D., I belong to a walking group that walks in Plano, Allen, and Mckinney. The website is:

and our group is Moms on the Move. It is just a group of moms that walk together. Once a month we have a playdate. You should check it out.

Hi, D.,

welcome to the area! My name is M. and, eventhough I'm not old enough to be your mom, and maybe a little too old to be your "friend", I feel like I want to reach out to you. I am originally from Belgium, so I know how it feels to be away from your family and your mom. I'm also a yoga teacher, specializing in pre and postnatal yoga, so i could give you plenty of support and help to go thru your pregnancy. there are prenatal yoga classes in Allen that you can join that will allow you to meet other expecting mothers. check this website:
www.mamasteyoga.com
I teach prenatal yoga in frisco and dallas, but both locations would probably be too far for you... Anyway, welcome again. Here's my website, my e-mail and phone number are on it...
www.breatheyoga.us

Feel free to contact me...

D.,

I would suggest going to meetup.com and joining some of the moms groups. There are several groups in your area to choose from. In fact, I belong to several of them and we have some pregnant moms as members. Each group has a message board and you can always post questions and get great advice from the other moms. Plus, you will already have made some new friends by the time your baby is born. Please feel free to email me if you need any help getting setup with the groups or if you just need someone to talk to. I am a first time, single mom and my little girl is about to turn 8 months old. I'm 29 so not old enough to be your mom but I suppose I could be like a big sister.

Welcome to Texas, D.!!

Congratulations on your new marriage and pregnancy. How exciting! Wow, you sure have had many changes in your life lately. Have you gotten plugged into a church yet?

I am 35 years old and live in Allen with my husband and 2 1/2 year old child and I am 12 weeks pregnant with our second child. If you and your husband want to come visit a church, we would love to extend the invitation to ours that is just a short distance from McKinney - it's in Plano. Finding a church is an excellent step meeting great mentors and women to help guide you along the way. Our church is starting a new series next week, so it would be a great time to check it out.

You can view our church website at: plano.fellowshipchurch.com.

Let me know!

God Bless,
A.

Hi D.,

Yes, I am old enough to be your Mom. I am 41 and have a 15 month old son. I am on the opposite spectrum of you. You started early and I started later. So in a way we have something in common. My husband and I moved to McKinney in 2001 from Florida and love it here. Feel free to e-mail me at any time.

Hi D.,

WI'm in a Moms group that meets the 2nd and 4th Wed and Thurs. of the month. It's a great way to meet other women. We have different speakers each time talk to us about topics relevant to raising children and being moms. We have breakfast at 9:30, hear the speaker, have discussion time at our tables about the speaker's topic, then finish up by 11:30 a.m. Childcare is provided for and the cost for you and your child is $40 for the year. Babies under 6 months old usually stay at the table with their moms. We are similar to the MOPS International groups that meet around at various churches, but ours is not affiliated with MOPS so it's alot cheaper. I've heard the MOPS groups can be $100 a semester. We meet at Fellowship Bible Church North which is just west of the Target at Central and Parker in Plano. The link for the website to get more information or register is:
http://www.fbcnorth.org/Content/84.htm.

I'm in charge of registration, so if you have more questions , you can email me back or email our leader Dee Ann Rainwater at [email protected]____.com next meeting is this coming Wednesday and Thursday and is on Financial Planning. You can visit twice before you decide if you want to join. If you'd like to come try it out, just let me or Dee Ann know.

You can email me directly at [email protected]____.com.

I hope you join us. I go on Wednesdays and I know there is another women there that is pregnant and young also.

Hi D.,

I've been a nanny most of my life (I'm 33) and have tons of experience. I have a 2yo son now, as well. If you'd like to chat just e-mail me at [email protected]____.com. I have instant messenger as well.

I moved here from San Jose 8 years ago. I understand the "more affordable" thing! I do miss the beach, mountains, etc, though, don't you?

Also have a new friend who is also 19 and has a 5 month old daughter. I'm sure she would love to be friends with you. I'll ask her if I can share her info with you.
