I thought I would join your thread. I am familiar with you all, as I cycled my first cycle with a lot of you. I have kept up, while pregnant, with your stories. I am on maternity leave until March 2, when unfortunately, I have to return to work.
My daughter, Katie was born on December 4th, on her due date. I had to have a C-section, as she was breech and had no interest in turning. She was 7 lbs 7 oz and 20 1/2 inches long. She is doing just great. I tried to breastfeed, but actually never got my milk. Wierd, but doctor says that happens sometimes. Katie is doing fine on the formula, so it is fine.
We do have an interesting situation, as Katie has a floppy voicebox. She has always made many noises while sleeping and even some while awake. We actually took her to the ER at 9 days old thinking she was having trouble breathing. They said it was normal baby noises. She got her first cold at about 4 weeks, and it seemed the noises were worse. She went to the DR three times during cold, as worried Mom thought she was having trouble breathing. I was finally told it was a "noisy airway". They said some children are born with it and it usually goes away by 2 yrs old. I have been to the pulmonologist to verify, and he says it is a noisy voicebox, not airway. He said we should go to the Pediatric Ear Nose and Throat DR, so they can scope and verify. If so, and there is a 99% chance this is what it is, they will do nothing, she will just be noisy for a while and it will go away. In one way, it is good, because we never have any doubt she is breathing, as we can hear her all night long. (She is in a cradle in our room for now)
I have enjoyed following all of your stories, and I hope I am welcome to join. I don't know how to post pictures to photobucket, and once I conquer that, I willl post a pic of Katie.
