Hello ICLWers and Happy Holidays!
I'm Jamie, I'm 32 years old, married to JP for just over 2 years (but together for 6). I am 17 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 lost 146 pounds. I've gained about 20 of that back. 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 29 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, and is finally over the 2 cm mark away from my cervix, as of a week and a half ago. We're also having some growth issues. IUGR was mentioned last visit. We started at 8th percentile, jumped to 20th, and then went back down to 16th, with a less than average jump over two weeks, at our last growth scan. The next growth scan is the day after Christmas. Fingers and toes are crossed that we made some positive gains. 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!
If you decide to stay and poke around, I'll apologize in advance for my scattered and depressing recent posts. My hormones are a mess lately.
