My name is Natasha. I have a 2 1/2 yr old girl named Autumn Lilly, and I am expecting another little girl April 19th which we are naming Danika Riley. This pregnancy has been pretty uneventful for me besides being GD. My last pregnancy was much more eventful due to preterm labor at 23 weeks (due to a short cervix), being GD, and being 4 cm dilated for the duration of my pregnancy until I delivered at 36 weeks. It was a very fast and spontaneous labor lasting about 20 min total... I lucked out! Autumn was born very healthy at 6lbs 6 oz. The only "abnormality" was a tad bit of jaundice. I EBF her and started to wean her off at 11 months. This pregnancy I have been fortunate enough to not have any such complications as I did in my last. I will be induced between 36-38 weeks though because of the GD. (I am 33 weeks now!!) SO the ending is very near for me!!! I plan to EBF this time also.. oh and I had no pain meds while delivering Autumn... I went o'natural (but that wasn't by choice because of how fast everything happened), but I plan to try o'natural again because if I did it once I can do it again!
Anyway, enough about me.. looking forward to getting to know you all!!
