Wow, the 21st really snuck up on me this month! Here it is almost the end of the day, and I haven't even started yet. I'll do my best to catch up!
I'm Jamie, I'm 32 (very nearly 33) years old, married to JP for just over 2 years (but together for 6). I am 18 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 30 of that back in the last 7 months. 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 33 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. We're having some growth issues. IUGR was mentioned last visit. We started at 8th percentile, jumped to the 20th and 16th, but have settled back down at 7th/5th at my last two growth scans. 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 that have been following along, we just got home for our most recent growth scan. My little girl has gained just over a pound in the last 2.5 weeks, putting her at 3 lbs, 12 oz, which is the 5th percentile for her gestational age. Her gain was pretty decent, but we're not catching up like we should be. The plan is to keep up with the twice-weekly check-ups, to make sure everything else still looks normal. She has been getting full marks on the BPPs and NSTs, where everything has been completely normal so far. Fingers crossed that it stays that way!
