I was originally just lazy and signed up for babycenter forums... but as anticipated, not much in common with the mean-spirited ladies over there.<br><br>
So hello! Here's a little info about me:<br>
Expecting first child July 16thish.<br>
We were going to have a homebirth but did an ultrasound just to make sure there weren't obvious complications and we ended up with two. Our baby has been prenatally diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot (congenital heart defect) as well as my having a very low-lying velamentous insertion (there were telling me Vasa Previa in the beginning) so we will be delivering at UCSF. Having originally planned not to find out the gender, we now know we are having a boy (which is what I suspected from time of conception but thought I was crazy).<br><br>
Pretty nervous now about birth, whereas I started off this pregnancy extremely confident. I think it was the month thinking I was going to have a C-section and being on pelvic rest that tipped me over.<br><br>
Anyhow, that's me up till now.. thanks for having this forum! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/treehugger.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Treehugger">

Welcome, from a July mama near the bottom end of the state. Sorry you won't get the birth you had most wanted but very glad you have identified what you need and where you need to be. The best part is getting to meet the little man you have been growing in your belly this whole time anyhow.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Boys ARE wonderful, and I should know! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Welcome! I lurk on the Babycenter July '10 board and I don't like it there much, either.

my aunt is an LC at UCSF and i have been to the NICU there. It's got a great reputation (and some great views of the city!).<br><br>
Sorry to hear about your son's conditions but you are in good hands.

Welcome!! We're due a day before you. I hope everything goes as well as it can for your birth, even though it's not what you had planned. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
