Audrey's Birth Story!

Audrey has arrived & as soon as I get the chance I will be updating our profile with lotsa pix and news! Stay tuned :D

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.........................................................................................................♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
We moved from Seattle, WA and have lived in San Diego for a year. We don't know anyone or really have any family here and would love to make some friends! Especially parents and/or young married couples in Cali... particularly San Diego area. :D

I love Parentanks of all kinds. If you Parentank me, I WILL Parentank you back. If I don't in a timely manner let me know, I probably just didn't notice. It'd be cool if you left me a comment, too. So I know that you PT'd me :D Thanks!!

Audrey-Cursive-Heart.png14-17 weeks = 4 months - COMPLETE! (10/4-Had OB appt. Heard heartbeat, sounded GREAT! Found out my ANA Titer for Lupus was still positive, got a referal for a Perinatal (high risk) specialist. Waiting for appt. to be scheduled, then I'll have a new Doc! Didn't schedule hospital gender scan :-( 10/13-Second and final round of blood tests for CA screening program. 10/15- IT'S A GIRL! Ultrasound tech said baby was measuring 1 week further along, which would put me @ 17wks 3days, and an EDD of 3-21-12. We'll see what the doctor says. Also said baby has long legs :D)
18-21 weeks = 5 months - COMPLETE! (11/1-OB appt. Dr. didn't say anything but when she was feeling for my uterus she stopped measuring about 2-3inches above belly button. I'm suppose to be 19wks, so it should be at or below my belly button... hmm. Heard HB, sounded PERFECT! 11/9- Started feeling actual kicks!! 11/11- Her name is Audrey! 11/18- Daddy felt kicks for the first time!!)
22-26 weeks = 6 months - COMPLETE! (11/23-Wow, only a month left of my 2nd tri! 11/30- Had high risk appt. Said Audrey & I were having a healthy, "normal" pregnancy! Got the go ahead for a birth center! No formal US, though... ex-doc forgot to order it, so wont know measurements/dating til 12/15, but her heart sounded great and everything looked perfect! Went to Birth Center tour & loved it! Scheduled first Midwife appt. for 12/9. No more Doctor! 12/9- First MW appt! Went well :D Heartbeat sounded PERFECT! So happy we've switched care. 12/15 20wk US @ 25wks!... she's measuring PERFECT! She kept taking big gulps of the amniotic fluid while she was napping. HR was 134. I have an anterior placenta, so I don't feel as many kicks.)

27-30 weeks = 7 months - COMPLETE! (12/27- Had a little scare. Didn't feel Audrey move much all day, and after 2 hours of kicks counts with only 2 movements we went to the ER. After getting transferred to L&D the nurse was very rude! Hubby gave her a piece of his mind and she shaped up :D Audrey & I were monitored for about an hour. As soon as the monitor went on she started kicking at it! OF COURSE! Everything was fine :D They actually said her heart accelerations were advanced for a baby of her gestational age. Hope we don't have to go back there again! 1/5- Midwife appt. 3 hour glucose challenge... don't have the results of the glucose yet, but I imagine I passed since I'm hypoglycemic, lol.
