How quiet it's been around here lately...

Anyhow, quick update on me. 20 weeks and had my anatomy scan yesterday. Baby was uncooperative when it came to getting a pic of the spine so I get another ultrasound in a few months but likely would have anyway as baby is firmly breech. I know, I know, I've got plenty of time for baby to turn and LO was breech at 20 weeks but turned head down later so I know it's very likely s/he will turn yet but baby has been breech or transverse on every scan so far and that's unlike my other pregnancies so we shall just have to see how stubborn this one is.

Anyway, all looks good, baby is doing great (aside from being breech and back/to/back right now ), and I'm feeling so much more confident. Roll on September!

Thanks all. It's not been easy getting to this point (my anxiety was cripplingly terrible this time and only through my weekly appts with my therapist, have I kept myself somewhat sane...) but that anatomy scan just made it so REAL for me. I can't believe I'm having a baby. It just seems so surreal, like I've just woken up from a dream or something. But it's a good feeling and I'm loving it.

Dan-o: wow, 12 week scan already? 2nd tri is right around the corner.

ttc: I totally get what you mean when you say it feels like it's happening to someone else. I didn't really believe this baby was happening until my scan last week and seeing bubs on the monitor just made it all come into focus or something. It was very strange but now I am feeling movement on a regular basis, I'm not so worried, and I'm finding myself actually getting excited about this baby. Like all of a sudden that light switch clicked on and I finally let myself really BELIEVE that this child will actually make it.

How is everyone here? It's been crickets for a while but just wanted to pop in for a quick update.

Rodney Allen arrived at 38+1 and he was an itty bitty boy at 5lb 5oz and 19 inches long. We were transferred to the nearest NICU two days later as his blood sugar was pretty much 0 at birth and we couldn't get it to stabilize even with frequent feedings, a dextrose IV, and oral glucose gel. After 19 days in the NICU and lots of ups/downs along the way, he's coming home tomorrow. He'll be 3 weeks old and has gained over a pound already. He and I are both more than ready to be out of the hospital (I've been staying in a hotel near the hospital since the NICU doesn't have a space for parents to room in with their baby(ies) but I spend most of my day at the hospital with him so it feels like I've been living in one anyway.) So all is well despite the NICU stay and we're both doing well now.

But I will say that my little man made me the talk of the hospital...His delivery was the first doctor-unassisted delivery my nurse has had in her many years of nursing and the whole experience was terrible for me. Long story version is in my pg journal but the short version is my contractions weren't showing up on the monitors so the dr wouldn't admit me. I couldn't get pain meds until I was admitted so I endured 2 hours of the most unimaginable pain I've ever felt because the dr didn't believe me. My contractions got so strong at the end that my water ruptured violently enough to DRENCH the entire bottom half of the bed as well as me and baby boy literally shot out of me without a single push on my part. The dr wasn't even in the room! (He walked in 5 minutes later saying "So I hear I need to deliver a baby....*sees me holding my newborn* Ohhhh.....") Needless to say, every L&D nurse knew my name after that and I have instructions to call the OB floor when we are sent home from the NICU to update them all on how Rodney and I are doing.
