A lot of you girls probably don't know me but I was a part of this area at the beginning of the year after having miscarried at the end of October '06.

We had LITERALLY just moved March first and actually TTCing was the last thing on our minds. We were just "breaking in" the new place 2 days after moving in I realized towards the end of the month that I felt funny. I sat down and looked at the dates and they matched up. Took a test, and here I am! I think actually taking our minds off TRYING is what did it myself.

I'd be lying if I said that I got to enjoy the whole pregnancy. I didn't have any complications until towards the end when we found out that the baby was measuring small for her gestational age. The whole time I was waiting for something to happen. I was so freaked out at my 20 week u/s that DH had to pull the car over and I puked on the way to the Dr. after not having thrown up once during the pregnancy. I'd be nervous until every doctor's appointment. I'd be relieved after the appointment, but then would make up something in my head to worry about the next day and that would carry me through 'til my next visit. I played it cool on the outside but was a nervous wreck on the inside. They induced me at 39 weeks because she was measuring small. Boy, she was small. Eleanor Frances was born November 24, 2007 weighing 5 lbs 11 oz and 18 inches long. Still not sure why she was so small. Healthy as a horse though. I even got to take her home the next day because I couldn't stand being in the hospital.

Anyhow, I don't know how inspirational this was. I'm very grateful that things worked out as well as they did. My miscarriage was devastating. When my one year anniversary came up I felt so strange. Sure, I was very pregnant but something was off. I don't think I'll ever forget my FIRST pregnancy.

Here's Ellie:

THANK YOU Mrs. Jantzen for my AWESOME siggy!
