I was going to post this awhile ago, but when I was told I had to see a high risk doctor I kind of stepped back from all things baby. Now that things are looking up, I'm excited to get back in the game!
Hi there! My name is Barbara and this will be baby #5 for me. I was still breastfeeding my son, so it was a huge surprise for us. DH had his big snip scheduled and everything.
It has honestly been tough for me since I found out at about 8 weeks that I was pregnant because we are pretty tight on money as it is. DH and I both work full-time already too!
Because of my "advanced Maternal Age" we decided to have the MaterniT21 test done to check for Trisonomy 13,18 and 21. Praise God they were all negative! We also found out from that test that we are having another little boy
I don't see anything on a siggy for you, is this baby #1 for you guys? What do you do for a living? I look forward to getting to know you better.

It's exciting but nerve wracking because it was a surprise. We were planning on trying soon (probably around now), and this pregnancy came as a huge shocker. I didn't even know I was late. I only tested because I had a dream I was pregnant!
We're being followed by a high risk doctor because Baby has a cyst is his/her abdomen. At first my ob/gyn told me Baby had a high NT measurement, but the high risk doctor showed us how the Tech put the calipers in the wrong spot, so the measurement was actually perfectly normal. They think the cyst is a duplication cyst or an ovarian cyst (if baby is a girl), both of which would most likely be benign. They couldn't tell the sex at our last ultrasound- we don't want to know the sex, but we want to know what the cyst is, so we might have to find out.
To tell you the truth, I'm glad I'm being followed by a high risk doctor. I'm not a huge fan of my ob/gyn and I've heard horrible stories about him, whereas my high risk doctor is AMAZING and so nice and reassuring.
I'm the youngest of 5 children, so I think your family is going to be the perfect size I loved growing up in a bigger family. It's especially nice when you're going through difficult times and you have so many people to lean on for support!
