Hi, girls! I have been away for a while, and am so glad I came to visit the boards today. Lots of happy stories on the pregnant again forum! Brandon is now 4 and a half months old. He is such a cutie! I am going to see how I can post some pictures on here. He weighs 13 pounds, which is about what Hannah weighed when she was a year old :)
He is going to have to have surgery on September 3rd for severe hypospadeus(sp?) and chordee. The surgeon said this may be the first of several surgies, so that's not good news, but he thinks he can correct the problems. He said if it's not fixed, then he will always have to pee sitting down for his entire life, and he won't be able to have sex. I want granchildren, so we have to get it fixed :)
I am going to be a nervous wreck, so I'll need some support when the time comes. Hannah is doing great and loves her baby brother. I am doing better now. I had pretty bad pp depression, and the MFM wasn't a lot of help, but he put me on a low dose antidepressant. I finally got up the courage to see my regular OB - the one I had a falling out with while I was pregnant. She has been through so much with me for so many years, and I missed her and I really wanted to see her. We had a good visit and she upped the antidepressants and I feel better. I had pp depression after Hannah, too. It didn't help this time that I found out that my husband may have been having an affair with a co-worker while I was pregnant. I was one month pp when I found phone bills that showed a lot of texting and late night phone calls, especially when I was in the hospital. He said that nothing happened between them, but I don't really believe him. I thought we might get divorced, but we're working on our marriage right now. I had to go back to work 5 weeks pp because I was out of FMLA time due to bedrest. I was also told that our office is being relocated to another state, which also depressed me because I love my job and the people I work with. I'm still working there for now, but I haven't been able to find a new job. So, it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since I first found out I was pregnant, which was almost a year ago! I am so glad to have this forum and for all of the help and support when I was pregnant. I can't wait to hear updates on everyone else!
