I am so sorry to all of you ladies that have stumbled on to this space via ICLW only to be welcomed by newborn baby shots. My little girl is like a spell over me, causing very little else to exist in my world right now. I very much usually try to be more sensitive than that.
I'm Jamie, I'm 32 (very nearly 33) years old, married to JP for just under 2 1/2 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, though I regained 36 during my pregnancy. 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, on 2/20, I gave birth to a healthy, though tiny, baby girl! Our journey through pregnancy was not without it's drama. I had some spotting scares, which were eventually explained by placenta previa. IUGR was our biggest concern. We started at 8th percentile, had some highs and lows, but at 36 weeks she fell to the 2nd percentile, and induction was schedule for 38 weeks. 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 promise to have a much more detailed birth story very soon!
