I guess its about time that I start this journal...I am not sure why I have been putting it off since this pregnancy has been going so well but better late than never, right?? This has been a long/rough/exciting journey to motherhood and I am so happy to be going through it right now. I am currently 17 weeks and 6 days pregnant...due December 4th with a beautiful baby boy. Our first. My DH, Matt, is great and has been very supportive through everything.
A brief synopsis of the last almost 2 years is that I have had 3 miscarriages, 2 natrual and 1 D&C. They were all first trimester losses with the last one lasting about 8 weeks. I have had all kinds of testing done but the doctors cannot find what caused these miscarriages. Frustrating, I know. This pregnancy has been going great and my doctor has been watching me closely. I am really blessed with such a great doc. Anyway, the only slight complication I have had so far is that I have a low lying placenta that we are hoping will correct itself in the next few months. This isn't causing any problems right now except that we can't BD until we know that my placenta has moved up but it will cause problems for delivery. We will cross that bridge when we get there.
