Hello! Popping in now that I've stopped throwing up long enough to sit at the computer. I should theoretically be due in July, last LMP of 10/15 but my cycles are really long, making the due date more likely first part of August. Now factor in the tendency for women in my family to go to about 44 weeks, and maybe I won't have a baby till September! What DDC should I be in?
I have one son, 4 yrs old, and we've had a few losses and been trying for a second since he was born, so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.
I'm seeing a DO who's helping with hormone testing and such, so if I do lose the baby we might have a better handle on why, and he's a homebirth doc, but we may not call until after the birth unless we need him. We really want to UC this time. So all around pretty good things happening.
Well except throwing up 3-5 times a day for 5 weeks and then trying to fight off some sort of horrid respiratory infection, not good when you've been losing weight like crazy from not being able to keep anything down, including vitamins. I'm almost through it though and am finally getting my appetite back.
I work fulltime, but my boss just went through all this and is extremely sympathetic. She's 6 months along and just got off her subcutaneous pump for the hyperemesis. I did a lot of holding down the fort while she was gone for 3 or 4 months and now I can work from home part time till I feel up to coming back, which will probably be about another week.
Geez! Sorry for the long-winded intro. Guess I had a lot to say!
