CJ!!!!

I was wondering about you and was about to post soon wondering what happended to you. Yeah! Its so nice to hear from you. We have lots in common. I need my rhogram shot in a few weeks too and of course the glucose tests. I didnt know you were Rh-..I think there more of us out there than the stats say. Also, I am having a repeat u/s at 28 wks to see if my placenta has moved up..If it hasnt I will need a c section. I am sure the spine thing will be fine..just extra vertabrae.

Also, I had a scare this week..still ongoing. I was exposed to Fifths Disease. I dont even want to get into it, but I never knew what it was and how it was dangerous to pregnant people. My dr. is monitoring my blood to see if I have gotten it or not. If I have I will need to be closely monitored the rest of the pregnancy. I try not to think about it.

I understand your concerns when you read scary birth stories. I actually know two people who lost their babies during delivery. One lives on my block. I look at her in awe how she carried on. But she did with lots of therapy she tells me, and went on to have three more kids. But still I think we all know its very fragile business.

You are sounding more prepared than me. I havent thought about getting a room ready or anything. I wont decorate until after the baby is born, because i dont want to know the sex..but it certainly makes it more difficult. I am beginning to think this is a girl, mainly because I STILL have morning sickness. Still puke on occasion even. Thats the way it was with my daughter too..so I am trying to prepare my hubbie that it is a girl. That way, he expects it, but if its a boy he would be so suprised. Who knows, maybe boys make me this sick too!>!>!>! Anyways..Please post more often! Its so nice to hear from you.

Hi, CJ!

Just wanted to welcome you back! It's good to see your post! I'm so glad you're doing well! As you can see, we are all doing well under the excellent leadership of our new CL, Krista! The board is changed and somehow she is still holding down her job while responding to EVERYONE!

Aside to Beth, Fifths disease is quite a bit on the rare side. I'm shocked to read about this. I'm sure everything will be fine, but I send you tons of positive thoughts and anti-fifths vibes!

Best to all!

Alexeyev
