Hey ladies, sorry I havent chatted much yet. Wow! This is going to be a fast moving thread! Lol! I love that! I also love the idea of it just being the 9 of us! It will be so much fun having a small group that really knows eachother.
I haven't looked, but is anyone else in the US? Also, I will friend request for Facebook.
I love the idea of monthly bump pics! Yeah!
Let's see, birth story...................... I was 34wks pregnant with my first baby (Micayla, now 12yr) when I found out that they had done my test wrong for Gestational Diabetes. I did in fact have it and at my 34wk scan she was showing at 9+ lbs. They immediately sceduled me for a C-section. I went to the hospital the morning of, which was Martin Luther King Jr. B-day (national holiday here in US) I was completely preped and SHAVED for sugery when they came in and told me that my Dr's office had forgotten to send over my records and that they were closed because of the holiday and that I would have to come back two days later!? Who does that??? They have you minutes away from welcoming your first baby into the world and then just send you home? Lol! Anyway, She ended up coming via c-section two days later at a whopping 9lb 13oz! Fun stuff! She went directly into 3mth clothes! Hehe! She is now the most petite little thing! Go figure!
My son(Zachary now 5yr) was a dream pregnancy and delivery although I had GD again. I knew from my very first DR appt what date I was having him and everything. 8lb 5oz.
I have Type 2 Diabetes, so I have to inject myself every day, several times a day. I dont plan on seeing a DR until at least 8wks maybe 12wks. My reason for this is like you all stated above, and the fact that I was just pregnant. Just had all the bloodwork, just went through the entire routine of the first tri, so I know exactly what I need to do to be healthy for me and the baby, but I also can't stand the thought of seeing it's little heart beating at 8wks only to come back at 12wks and be told that it has died. I know it will still hurt, but not as bad as seeing that heart fluttering away and then having it taken away.
Ugh! Not going to go there! Lol! ONLY HAPPY THOUGHTS!! This one will be different!!
Anyway, now that I have written a novel! Lol! I can't wait to get to know you all!
