Hey Rachel thanks for asking. After I saw a post about someone chastizing my choice as a woman if I happened to get abnormal test results I gave up on this site so I would not get in any cyber wars. Good to see Lost had my back and the thread was closed. The things I have been thru with this pregnancy and all the scenarios my then genetic counselor have given us have been terrifying. After loads of maternal fetal medicine doc appts, an amnio, a huge array of testing and multiple ultrasounds my team of doctors have finally concluded my son is perfectly healthy with more to love...he will be undergoing surgery after birth, but nothing major. I meet with a new team at a Childrens Hospital in May which includes: a pediatric plastic surgeon, occupational therapist, neonatal specialist, genetic counselor, chief of maternal fetal medicine doctor, chief of pediatric nursing and a social worker to discuss my sons surgery and prognosis. I'm so forunate to be given the opportunity for the best care for my son. Just not ready to disclose the diagnosis. My husband and I have been thru the ringer about various other issues with our marriage so I am now sadly announcing our seperation (seperated since 4/2/13) and upcoming divorce/custody proceedings of our 4 yr old. I'm just devastated all the way around. Not sure how I'm going to be able to financially survive the time off postpartum and surgery days mixed with the attorney I don't have but need very bad. I was hoping for a family unit with my children..with their real father..him...especially because this is our rainbow baby. Its been very sad lately. On top of being sick still and not eating as much as I wish I could. I've gained 24 lbs so far so hope that means I'm eating enough for baby. Gained 2 cup sizes which puts me at a FF now and I don't have a bra that fits so I've been wearing sports bras. Money has been extremely tight since I'm not getting any financial support from father for our son and new son. Its scarey hope you all are doing wonderful! I still check up on yall periodically. Thanks again for asking.
I'm so sorry for all you're having to worry about, but I'm also so glad that your son is and will be getting what he needs when he arrives. We'll be thinking about you! Please come back and update us when you can.
I am sorry to read that you felt the need to go away because of someones thoughts. I am glad your son will be ok and agree with husher about coming to update when you can. I know how scarey it can be when you are looking at all that you are, and I will think positive thought for you and baby. I am also sorry about the SO situation. That makes me want to cry, seriously. please look me up if you need an ear or shoulder.

Of course I had your back, sweetheart! I try to stay out of most things, but I won't sit back while someone is being attacked and I think it's important to speak up especially when those attacks come from a close-mindedness. I am so glad your son will be okay. Sorry to hear he will need surgery, but your doctors sound like they have been amazing through this. Just know we are here for you! I've missed you being around and posting! When you are ready to talk, we are here, and you can always PM me. Everything in your own time, hon.
I'm really sorry to hear about the struggles with your marriage and that you guys cannot reconcile What terrible timing, too. I hope the court system will order him to pay the support your boys deserve. If he can't even do that, what makes him think he will get custody? It's shameful of him. I'm sorry you are going through this. You are strong woman and a fantastic mother. Don't let anyone get you down. ***HUGS***
