thats fabulous.. and it made me realize why I'm feeling so comfortable with my current OB practice.. there has not been any of the negative stuff about me being plus sized. No questioning, no extra "problems" mentioned and never once did they tell me they couldnt hear the heartbeat because I am a bigger woman. That made me smile.

My boys are beautiful and look forward to meeting the new member of our family

Thats a great letter Melissa, I'm also plus size and im due the day after you, July 6th. I dont feel that my size affects my pregnancy. I am healthy and there is no reason why i can't have a healthy baby! Good luck on your pregnancy! Robyn
