My name is Jeanette (32), DF (soon to be DH, we're getting married 12/31/12) is Josh (39) and we have have one awesome DS, Vaughn, who'll be 3 in May. I've been on JM since 2009 and am also part of the May 2010 PR. We just announced to our families on Xmas Eve and FB world Xmas day
I found out I was pregnant a couple days before AF was due and am currently 14 weeks, 15wks on Tuesday. I have enjoyed reading this board and it genuinely seems friendly and supportive in this DDC! I was hesitant to join early...I had a loss this past June and the day after I joined it began...so I guess you could say I was superstitious. Inspiring how the universe gives back though, with the loss in June, I am now awaiting this baby due in June
My lil family is living on Maui currently, DF was transferred here for work back in 2009 (he's a senior manager for a major wholesale retailer) and I was a SAHM at the time but decided to go back to work this year.
I'm hoping for VBAC, but they are banned here and my only option would be to go to Oahu. Brings up a lot of logistical and insurance/financial issues I'm working through now to see if its even a real possibility for me. I'm frustrated about it, but I'm trying to deal and make the best informed decision I can. Saving grace is I LOVE my OB. He has great bedside manner, who is makes me feel involved in my own pregnancy decisions, is honest and straight forward which I appreciate cause I can't stand coddling or wishy-washiness, and always talks TO me instead of AT me. I'm very lucky.
So, looking forward to joining in. I just had my 14wk appt and baby is doing great. I've only gained 4lbs total so far and baby HB is 154. Super excited to do my BIG U/S in 4 wks...appt is on 1/22!! I just know time will fly!
Happy & Healthy thoughts to all you!!
PS: Shout out to Danielle and Melissa...how fun to be part of the same DDC again!!
Welcome and double congrats! I really like your take on your loss in June and your new pregnancy...that is a great outlook. I also suffered a loss in June and never looked at it how you are. Thank you for your insight
Thank you all for the warm welcome & well wishes for my wedding today!! I'm pretty relaxed, surprisingly
