Welcome October ICLWers!

Hello ICLWers!

It's been ages since I've done one of these.  My blogging has really been lax since my sunshine baby was born 20 months ago.  I'm hoping that a new audience will kick-start my motivation to chronicle what's going on in my life.

I'm Jamie, I'm 34 years old, married to JP  for just under 4 years (but together for 8).  I am 3 1/2 years post-op, roux-en-y (RNY) gastric bypass surgery; there's a link above if you're interested in reading more about it.  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 have a beautiful daughter (with whom I went through IUGR and placenta previa), and am 22 weeks along in my 3rd pregnancy, and if all goes well, we'll have a son in February!  I miscarried my 2nd pregnancy at 13 weeks in March of this year.  Testing revealed a genetically normal baby, so I really have no idea what happened.  As far too many people know, a loss really effects any subsequent pregnancies.  Feel free to poke around the few posts that are here.  If you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask!  I look forward to visiting all of your homes on the web.


  1. Welcome back to blogging! I just made my return as well. Congratulations on your pregnancy - I look forward to following along on this new journey! Sending prayers that you get your rainbow baby in February. :)

  2. So sorry to hear about your loss, but congratulations on your third pregnancy! And welcome back to the blogging community as well. ;)

  3. Hello from ICLW! I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. But what a blessing for this precious child you are carrying know! Praying that all continues to go well!

  4. I miss doing ICLW! I just have no time to commit doing it for a week right now. Hopefully that will change one of these months, but I am also super happy with my two little distractions that keep me running!
