I finally decided to try to start a journal. Maybe it will help me to obsess less and also put down all the lil events and dates that come with ttc.
a little background on me i joined jm after i found out i was pregnant with my first pregnancy in 2006, i got pregnant withought trying in 2006 was very sick througout the pregnancy loss alot of weight was even hospitalized for dehydration and needed to get nutrients through iv, had several u/s that were all cleared and told i was having a healthy big baby, i went into labor at 31 weeks on may 29, 2006 and delievered hunter completely natural on may 30, 2006 he weight 5 pounds exactly and was 18 inches hunter was doing good for a preemie for the first couple days on day 3 he started having respitory issues and was put on a vent the next day he was flown to a nicu hospital and had several test done including an echoe that determined hunter had a heart condition he was put on meds and slowly taking off the vent which he toletrated until he was 3 weeks old he had his first open heart surgery there was alot of up and down afterwards but all in all hunter was doing ok so the doctors told me, on the week that we were to be discharged hunter went into cardiac arrest they intervened so fast and he was put on the vent once again and was flown back to the level 3 hospital and he went into surgery once again but this time hunter did not come out of surgery i got to say goodbye to my precious angel on july 7, 2006 he was almost 2 months old.
4 months after i loss hunter i met future dh online at first we were just friends and we were new to the same town so we started hanging out and soon afterwards started dating we had common friends and interest 4 yrs into dating we decided to try for a baby and withing our first cycle we got a BFP now because of my first pregnancy i had to have an o.b and be seen on a regular basis and had more testing done the second pregnancy went fairly well morning sickness til 16 weeks had a fetal echo done at 20 weeks everything was cleared ok and then had another u/s done at 30 weeks and the dr thought he saw an abnormality with his kidneys we were then sent to see a high risk specialist which came back that the baby was ok and did not have anything wrong with his kidneys or heart they double checked, i went into labor naturally on dec 13, 2009 my dd was dec 24 and so a bit early but not that bad after a couple hours my labor stalled they then tried to induce me with pitocin and breaking my water i finally got to 10 and tried pushing for 4 hours by then it was dec 14 late at night i had been in the hospital over 24 hours in labor and the baby was not descending pass the pubic bone so it was decided i needed a c-section well when i got to the o.r room and got my spinal withing 5 minutes of getting the spinal i stopped breathing i needed to be put under and put on a vent, s/o was not allowd to be in the room during recovery they had to keep me in there for 4 hours i got a blood thansfusion and 2 iron shots and all this time the baby was in another room with s/o thank god but they did not update him on how i was doing so during this time denis was getting concerned about me and i was concerned about the baby. i finally got to meet him 4 hours later and he was perfect we named him sebastien and he was 8 pounds exactly and 19 inches
on june 6, 2001 we finally got married and bought a new house so we are now ttc baby #3 for me and baby #2 for him and we are excited and also a midwife is willing to take me on as a patient she is not willing to let me birth at home but at the hospital just as a precaution but she will push for natural and support me and because i pumped with hunter and with seb they gave him the bottle right away while i was in recovery knowing i wanted to breastfeed she will support me and let me breastfeed right away
i was become irregular and due to the wedding and making sure af wasn't around that day my doc gave me the pill and direction on taking it to shift af around so i started the pill on april 17 right after af and i stopped on june 13 had spotting june 14 and af showed up the next day from june 15 to june 22 we bd from the 24 to the 28 and according to certain calculations i either o'd on the 29 or 30 dh and i are convinced that this month was not it it's also harder this time around as we still co-sleep with seb hopefully next month i get that BFP
