October ICLW

Hello folks visiting from ICLW!  I took a three day weekend, and the 21st just passed right on by and I didn't realize it.  I am so sorry everyone!

I know some folks will see the pregnancy ticker and just keep right on going to the next on the list.  I don't blame you, I truly don't.  I used to do the same thing.  Know that in my heart of hearts, I wish that you'll be following very close behind me!

I'm Jamie, I'm 32 years old, married to JP  for EXACTLY 2 years today (but together for 6), as it's my wedding anniversary today!  I am 14 months post-op, roux-en-y (RNY) gastric bypass surgery.  Since beginning my weight-loss journey, I have lost 146 pounds.  I suffer from Non-Classic Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH), which effects my fertility very similarly to PCOS.  Untreated it causes elevated testosterone levels, insulin resistance, anovulation, etc.   Despite these hurdles, I am (nearly) 21 weeks pregnant with my first child, a little girl!  More of my IF history, and more details about RNY can be found in the tabs toward the top of the page.  If you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment!  I look forward to stopping by your home on the web when I get back from my trip!


  1. Hi from ICLW! Congrats on getting to almost 21 weeks! How exciting! It sounds like you have had a rough road getting there, though. I know how awkward it is being pregnant after IF. You feel all sorts of survivors guilt. I am about 15 1/2 weeks and I am constantly struggling with this (and just anxiety about the pregnancy in general). Best of luck to you for this pregnancy and afterwards!

  2. Happy anniversary! October weddings are the best :)

  3. Hi there. Congratulations on 2o weeks! Sending good thoughts your way that things continue to go smoothly.
