Hi Ladies!! I've lurked for a bit, but now that I'm past 12 weeks, I'd like to join if you'll have me!! My name is Kristy, my due date is June 15. This is my second child, I have a 6 year old boy as well. I'm Canadian, married, we farm, and this pregnancy was totally unexpected, but really, really wanted!!

My first pregnancy ended in a m/c at 11 weeks, I was 21. My next pregnancy was with my DS, I had a wonderful pregnancy, no sickness or complaints aside from headaches, until at 31 weeks when he stopped moving. He was delivered via emergency c-section at 31 weeks and 3 days. He's perfectly fine now, but he spent 7 weeks in NICU. Turns out I have a unicornuate uterus, which is essentially half a uterus, and he ran out of room. He was 2lbs 12oz, and besides having Inter Uterine Growth Restriction, he was healthy, just little. Thank goodness!!!

If this baby is the same size as my first, I'll probably get to carry longer than I did with DS, but I'm slightly on edge about it. I'm hoping to make it to May, but we'll see. At least this time around we know what to expect. After 20 weeks I'll have weekly monitoring (either ultrasound or stress tests), steroid shots at 28 weeks, and who knows what else!! My first ultrasound was last week, HB of 170 and measuring right on track.

I was told that getting pregnant would be super difficult, and it was. After 4 years of charting, temping and using OPK's, we just gave up. I really can't do fertility treatments because of the size of my uterus, it just complicates things if there is a twin conception, so natural is really it. Well, we planned a trip, we planned to buy a smaller vehicle, and I bought a new horse....BAM!!! Planning my life was all it took, and here I am, 5 years after starting our TTC journey.

This turned out longer than I had planned, but HI!! As soon as I can post pictures, I will.

We would love to have you here with us! I can relate to having a preterm delivery and c-section. I went through that with my first pregnancy.

I am so happy for you! Congrats!

Welcome! Love your story. Those steroid shots will do wonders for this baby! Hopefully that'll mean a little less NICU time.

Thanks, everyone!! I don't remember being scared when I delivered my first, I think you go into auto-pilot and adrenaline kicks in...but I'm making up for that fear now!! I'm pretty optomistic though, and know that we're in good hands and have more knowledge of what to expect this time around.
