Looking for the
old Cat/Astrophe or PinkPig files? I've taken them all down and will not be putting
them back anywhere for a long time to come. The links that are left behind?
current fitness endeavors are now at The
Road to Orlando and at Primagravida.
is a quick timeline of my pregnancy:
- After a
year of planning and then another year of actively trying to conceive despite
my problems with hypothyroid and PCOS, Paul and I are now expecting our first
baby! We're delighted, thrilled,
terrified and all that other good stuff.
- I've scaled
back on a lot of things as I adjust to being pregnant. Suddenly my body is not
my own any more.
and I are not doing the Disney half marathon this year as planned because I am
due Feb 2004.
- I've grown
used to low-grade chronic nausea. Lucky Charms is the only food that tastes ok
coming back up. :P
miss exercising and the gals at water aerobics class. I am investigating my options
for a prenatal yoga class, prenatal massage, and more.
- We register
for labor/birth class.
- We get
to find out gender....maybe. Baby did not want to cooperate at my 12 week ultrasound.
S/he may not want to again.
learn that Cletus is a GIRL in time for Paul's birthday. He admits he'd been secretly
wanting a little girl all along.
- I'm diagnosed
with gestational diabetes and my OB hands my case over to a high risk perinatologist.
So far, no insulin -- just control with diet and exercise.I attend diabetes nutrition
- My father has
a heart attack, but is doing fine. The same weekend of his attack, we attend and
complete our Lamaze weekend class. It was a crazy weekend with so much going on
but we both enjoyed class.
met our doula for the first time and both like her very much.
buy a new car for Xmas. Hooray!
- 1/5: Detailed
ultrasound reveals baby is measuring 3 weeks ahead of her age and is 7.5 lbs.
If she continnues at this rate I may be induced at 38 weeks. We schedule another
- 1/10 Although we
do not race, we go to the 2004 Disney Half Marathon expo to collect our race packets
and goodie bags. We register for 2005's half marathon.
revive the fitness blog (The
Road to Orlando) as I look ahead to post-partum fitness.
OB visit reveals I am 50% effaced and a fingertip dilated! Keeping blood glucose
under control with diet alone still.
OB revelas I am 60% effaced and 2 cm dilated! Baby is at least 9 lbs so I'm scheduled
for induction with emergnecy C-section if needed. I'm hoping to be induced and
do the rest on my own...
joined the party on planet earth at 10:12 PM by emergency c-section after 20 hours
of labor. She was 9 lbs, 5 oz and 20.75 inches long. Mommy and Daddy are thrilled!
that's the news here. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you are all doing great!
