Hi Kris! thank you for volunteering. did you want to take over right away or did you want me to continue as long as i can? all i do is every week, i copy and paste last week's list. then i go through and add all the appts and/or updates under the important dates. Then i go through and add a week to how far along everyone is. Then if someone is ready to move into the next trimester or someone finds out the gender etc, that all goes in the additions/updates. Let me know what you would like to do and we can go from there. Although, i have no problems keeping up with the list as long as i can. just let me know what you feel comfortable with View Thread
Note: I am now 36 weeks. I will continue to do this list as long as I can, but I think we can start thinking about someone else possibly taking over. If there are any volunteers, please let me know. The list is pretty easy to do.
Here are the updates for the week of 5/28/2012. If anything needs to be corrected, please let me know!
If you'd like to be added to next week's list, just respond to the post and I'll get you on here next week!

(refer to parts 1 and 2) When i was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, i was devastated. All i heard was "big baby", "respiratory distress", "increased likely hood of obesity and diabetes later", "shoulder dystocia" and the list went on and on. My doctors did nothing to alleviate my fears. And i thought "great, she is not even born yet and i am already hurting her". Then i found out that PCOS can interfere with breastfeeding, which was also devastating because i really want to breastfeed. so there you have it. Between feelings of inadequacy about being a good mother, a reluctant husband, a failed family life, outside perceptions and a diagnosis of GD and PCOS, i get very little time to think about the good things. Sometimes i have good days where i think none of that matters. that when she comes we will learn together and we will be ok. then i have days like today where it just seems hopeless. God knows how extremely GRATEFUL i am to even have this opportunity to think all this, but i pray that i can do right by this little girl. That i can do everything i can to make sure she is always happy and healthy. That is she has a great childhood and happy memories. That she grows up with parents she can be close to and communicate with. That i can tell her how much i love her everyday and be the kind of mother she thinks of as her friend. That i can protect her from the evil in this world and show her the goodness. I sometimes worry that all these feelings will give me postpartum depression or that i wont immediately fall in love with her. But as i write all this i realize that i already so love her so fiercely. i hope soon i can look back to this moment and realize that all these feelings were just part of becoming a new parent. I apologize for making this sooo long and thank you for reading. I hope i am not alone in feeling what i am feeling have a good holiday weekend! rooni View Thread
