Everyone is fed, bathed, DS is in bed, and DH went to go work out, so it is nice and quiet around here right now!
My appt today went great! No GBS until next week, bp was 110/60, hb in the 140s, measuring 36 weeks on the dot! Baby is head down and in 'good labor position' according to my mw. Not sure what that means, but I'll take it!!
I'm Katie, my DH is K and we are both 28. We have one son, Cutter, 2, born on his due date; 6/25/09. Just recently someone said to me "how cool! His half birthday is Christmas!" And it only took me two years to notice! ha!
DH and I have been married for 4 years next week, been together for 6. We had a super-secret office romance for 6 months before we were 'outed' by his boss. She found out at 10pm one night, and by 8 am the next morning, everyone knew!! (Don't worry, it wasn't forbidden to date people in the office. We worked in advertising and things were VERY relaxed)
Anyway, I went back to school and got a masters in education, and DH started his own company two days after we got married. We moved across the state for his work, and just recently moved back to be closer to family. Now his business has grown to serve 3 states, and I am a part-time grants manager for a school curriculum company.
About 6 months after we were married, we decided to ditch the birth control and just let it happen. 2 months later, we were pregnant! I was so excited, but started spotting almost immediately. We lost that baby, and I had 'retained products' that led to a massive uterine infection. Lucklily we were able to get pregnant again after that, but lost that baby too at 6and a half weeks. We then decided to take a break from trying to let ourselves heal, but low and behold, I was already pg again! This time we went to an 8 week u/s and saw a hb! We were thrilled! However, at a growth check u/s at 10 weeks (I was considered high-risk by then) the hb was gone, and we had lost our third child.
After lots of prayer, considering other routes to parenthood and some time to heal emotionally, we decided to make an appointment with a fertility clinic in Seattle that specialized in genetic issues. Two weeks before the appointment, I found out I was pregnant. We were terrified. And remained terrified past the betas, past the ultrasounds, past the level II genetic testing, and past when we found out we were having a boy. I think I took my first deep breath the day I made it to 24 weeks. C is our miracle baby, and we are so blessed to have him.
Whew! That got long...sorry. I'll post more later, including C's birth story. Thanks for reading if you made it that far!
