Re: Pregnancy After Loss (March 1-15)

Yesterday was the date that my 1st lost baby was due. I am actually not all that sad because I really feel like I'm almost getting that same baby with this rainbow baby. I lost that first baby on 8/8, and my due date with this baby is 8/8. It makes me feel better somehow.

for head down baby and placenta movement!!! Sorry about the cervix shortening, but that's wonderful that it lengthened with rest - definitely keep that up!
I'm jealous of your addition happening/coming along - nothing has been started in our house yet!

So I was told to strictly limit my activity and started progesterone. Which helped and as of yesterday the cervix is 40mm again! Dr. still wants me to limit activity and continue progesterone until I'm 32w. Baby boy is crazy active-no need here for a doppler-LOL most of the time I can see him move and I can already see feet moving across my belly. He is over 3lbs so I am starting to get to a point where I'd feel confident things would be fine even if he were born. 28 weeks tomorrow! I'm also getting to a point of feeling somewhat prepared for him. Clothes and diapers are washed even if still boxed. We have no real room for his stuff until our addition to the house is done but even that is coming along and we now have WINDOWS!
Glad things are going well for you even if it requires limited activity. I'm sure all baby's movements are reassuring to you and you're feeling more confident in how things are progressing.

Congrats on your rainbow. Catherine is beautiful. Tell me, how did you do with managing your GD? I just got the diagnosis today, I had it 5 years ago with DS's pregnancy, but don't remember much from that.

Congrats. What happy news

AFM: I failed my 3 hr glucose test. Not a huge fail, more border line on my results, but doc said we need to go with the GD diagnosis. Too bad, this baby really loved cheeseburgers, especially Whoppers from BurgerKing

Thanks! Bummer on the GD. It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, especially once I got the hang of it and learned that freaking out about occasional high sugars wasn't worth it . I checked my sugars 4 times a day (fasting and one hour after each meal). I ate around 30g of carbs for breakfast and three snacks a day, plus 60g for lunch and dinner. Certain carbs spiked my sugars, so there was some learning to do...it's not as cut and dry as it seems at first. I started out diet controlled, but as my numbers rose as I got further along, I was put on glyburide (a pill). I started with just a low dose before bed, then added some more in the morning. The doses were bumped up as my numbers rose a bit more. In general, my numbers were always in the 100-140 range after meals, but the occasional 170-180 happened, and that's okay. I was seriously stressing about it at first, terrified of a huge baby and a c section, but my docs and nurses assured me that I was doing great...in the end, this LO was my smallest baby! I missed eating certain foods, but it was temporary. It's really just a pain in the bum. In the long line of bad news you can get while pregnant, GD is really not a big issue. Good luck, mama!

Thanks for your perspective. I don't see the specialist till Thursday, but want to start eating the right foods now. I'll do a little internet research later, your carb guidelines are helpful .Doc said he didn't think I'd need meds. Thanks for the advice about not stressing over the occasional sugar spike. I'm definitely not worried about big baby and c-section because that is how all my births have been, lol. So even before the GD diagnosis, I expected to be a c-section with big baby.

The labor was short, but really quite low-key for the most part. I did go from 5cm to fully dilated in literally 10 minutes, so the end was a bit intense! It only took a few contractions after that to push her out. I did it with no pain meds, which I had really wanted but was afraid would not happen with the pit. Yay!

Little Catherine is perfect: 7lb 7oz, 20.5in. She's a champion nurser already, too I'm feeling great and will be home tomorrow.

I know that my little baby H is celebrating with us from Heaven...I've been thinking about him a lot. Catherine has a special little angel watching over her.
She is gorgeous! Congratulations, Lauren!!!!!!
