Hello ICLWers! I hope that everyone visiting from the US is having a wonderful holiday, and everyone else is having an excellent week/weekend!
I'm Jamie, I'm 32 years old, married to JP for just over 2 years (but together for 6). I am 16 months post-op, roux-en-y (RNY) gastric bypass surgery; there's a link above if you're interested in reading more about it. Since beginning my weight-loss journey (before pregnancy), I have lost 146 pounds. I suffer from Non-Classic Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (NCAH), which effects my fertility very similarly to PCOS. Untreated it causes elevated testosterone levels, insulin resistance, anovulation, etc. Despite these hurdles, I am 25 weeks pregnant with my first child, a little girl! It has not been without complications. I had some spotting scares, which were eventually explained by placenta previa. It is improving, but isn't yet to the 2 cm away from my cervix that they want to see. My last ultrasound also revealed that my baby girl is only in the 8th percentile for growth, so they're keeping a close eye on her. More of my IF history and US pictures of my little peanut, if you're in to that kind of thing, can be found in the tabs toward the top of the page. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask!
For those of you following along, I had an appointment with my regular OB on Monday. It was mostly uneventful. I've only gained another pound in 4 weeks, up 16 total. My belly/uterus growth seems to be really close to on track, as I was measuring 24 weeks at 24 weeks, 5 days. I have no idea how accurate a tape measure on my belly is, but I digress.
He further explained, about her growth, that if she drops down to something like the 2nd or 3rd percentile, that's when they're likely to decide that she stands a better chance on the outside than on the inside. I'm sure there's more testing involved before making that kind of decision, but time will tell. My next growth scan is on Tuesday, and it can't get here fast enough.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! I look forward to stopping by your home on the web!
