Hi there. I am Heather, 36 years old - which is strike one against me for being "high-risk"!! I am also plus-sized, which is strike two!
My husband and I are expecting our first - official due date is November 9th.
I have been freaking out a little about everything that I have done during my pregnancy and worrying about how it will affect my baby! I have tried to be good, but unfortunately my cravings are NOT for healthy food!
I have had 2 gestational diabetes tests - one at 8 weeks and one at 28 weeks. I failed both 1 hour tests and had to do the 3 hour ones, and passed both of those. However, my doctor still warned me that there is a good chance my baby will be big. At 28 weeks the US "estimated" my baby's weight at 2 lbs 12 oz, and my belly measurement has been dead on up until 30 weeks, when it was 2 cm behind.
I haven't gained any weight so far, and I am still wearing all of my regular clothes. My belly isn't really showing to most other people because I wore baggy clothes to start with, but my husband and I really notice it!!
Anyway, sorry for the long introduction! I am just so excited to find this group - I wish I had found it earlier in my pregnancy!
Hi, my name is Kacee and I am 32 my DH is 34 almost 35! I had been on TTC plus sized last winter. I have been watching everyone grow and have beautiful babies and am now 26 weeks with a little girl due 12-31-07 and thought I had better speak up. My DH and I have a 12 yr old girl and an 11 yr old boy so this is starting over for us. Glad to finally be able to post here and not scared enough not to anymore... looking forward to meet you all.
Hello! I've been board-hopping and lurking in the ones I "fit into" to see where I feel comfortable. I don't think I posted an intro here yet, so...
My name is Shari, hubby is Bo. I am 37, he is 27, and we have a beautiful 3.5 yr old little girl named Cadence. We lost our first son in April 2005 (21 weeks along), and are currently expecting a new baby boy in March of '08! Excited, but really nervous here! Hubby and I are both plus-sized. He works as a Correctional Officer. I am a former 911 dispatcher, and now SAHM. We have a dachsund named Max whom Cadi adores. I was a 24/26 pre-pregnancy and that is AFTER a gastric bypass I had back in 1999. My highest weight was nearly 600 lbs, so although no one else realizes, I feel so small compared to my old size, lol!
Can't wait to get to know everyone here!
Hello my name is Lisa 29 and I am currently pg with #2 due July8th. I have a 13mth old daughter Keira who is my world. We had some issues the first time with gd and a blood clot disorder. So I am hoping even though I didn't lose crap after the first 15 lbs that this time will be better. I cant avoid the heparin shots, but I do want to avoid borderline gd numbers and a c/section due to fear of babies size. So that is my story. I look forward to getting to know all you ladies!
Hi, Im Deidre. After TTC for 12 months, DH and I are expecting our first behbeh! EDD is July 9, 2008 which means that I am 8 weeks along. I am in maternity clothes, and I am proud of it!!! I am going crazy with worries about my diet and how it affects my baby. I am so scared that I am going to hurt it even with me sneezing!! lol I have gained 2 lbs so far, so I am hoping that I dont have over a 30lb weight gain.
Hi, my name is Pam, age 42 and due with my first on August 15, 2008. I've been plus sized my entire life and that is a bigger concern for me than my age right now - scheduled for my first ultrasound this week. Excited and nervous.
I'm Katy, 23, and due with my first on May 11, 2008. I'm plus sized, have been for a while, but I've been eating better because of this pregnancy and have been losing weight instead of gaining, which my Dr is actually happy about.
I'm new here. 29yo and preggo with our second little miracle. DH is just about done in school for his teaching certificate. I am also in school for my teaching certificate. I currently work in social services, but looking forward to being a SAHM for a while once DH gets out of school and starts working!
I have been plus-sized all of my life. I had finally gotten down to size 12 when I got preggo with DD. I gained 60 pounds; however, and didn't manage to lose any before finding out I am pg again. Oh, well!
