I haven't posted for months, and haven't even been following along as Libby's news was posted way down the list. Congrats Libby!
I just went over 20 weeks, and found out the week before last we are having a healthy baby girl. The process of going for the amnio was way more stressful than I thought it would be, and was certainly uncomfortable, but I am so glad to have all the chromosomes counted and in the right place.
The rest of the pregnancy is a tale as old as time -- eating, sleeping and fighting nausea. In fact, that is why I haven't been online. In my mind, this board make me so sick to my stomach! Of course, it was the morning sickness, but I found it tainted many things I had formerly enjoyed.
My sister-in-law had a baby last week, and did not gain 20 pounds for the whole pregnancy. I am afraid I am going to have her beat in about 2 weeks. I just can't stop eating!
I am enjoying prenatal yoga and am hoping and planning for a really wonderful natural childbirth experience. It is funny how these things can work out though, so I am open to whatever comes next.
Lovely to see you all here!
