Hello all! I'm so happy to have found this thread!!
I'm Lisa, 30, pregnant with my second due december 19th. My son Orion is 4 (will be 5 in September) and he says it's a boy (he won't even listen to 'it might be a girl') and wants to name him Armadillo.
I'm 237 pounds now and 5'5", started this pregnancy at 246 and having so much m/s has a lot to do with that! I did the same thing when pregnant with Orion, after he was born I weighted less than I did when I got pregnant. Not by a lot, but I was ok with that
So far I'm seeing an OB at kaiser and have had one appointment. No mention of my weight but they already want me to do a GD test and I've been putting it off because last time I tested positive, but normal eatting at home (including sugary foods) never spiked my blood sugars and my son was 7lbs 12ounces. I just think it was crap and have been doing research into the whole GD thing to make an informed decision.
I'm hunting for a good midwife in my area to switch care to after the 16 week mark (after the big ultrasound and all the blood testing) since we'll have to pay out of pocket. My husband is once again totally flipped out over the expense (but last time I had an unneccisary induction and I'm NOT going to the hospital to birth again unless something is actually *wrong* and I have to), but seriously the day your child is born is as huge of an occasion as a wedding and you spend way more on those usually!
I read over the whole thread over a couple days but heck if my forgetful pregnant brain can remember what I wanted to comment on now!
Its nice to meet you all
