ok,on december 24,2008 (chrsitmas eve) w found out we were pregnant. it was conifrmed on december 30th! i was very nautious through the first few months including my birthday! moving on....i was tested around may to see if i ws a carrier for CF,his was the only genetic testing i WANTED done..so since i was positive,sam was tested and he was positive..we went to Toledo for a detailed ultrasound and learned vince had mucous in his colon and it was a high chancehe did in fact have CF..but since it was so close to my due date i opted for no further testing. I'm glad..so i was induce at 40 weeks and 5 days and vince was born at 40 weeks and 6 days weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces! i never wanted a big baby,but now knowing that he was less than this at 1 month but still a good % i felt relieved that he was a big baby..he wore newborns for a few months before moving into 0-3. while i the hospial after his birth he pooped and we actually took pictures! we were so happy and had high hopes he didnt have CF because he was able to poop on his own..i was brestfeeding him and he lost 1/2 a pound in the first 24 hours and was started on formula in addition to my feeds..once he was home he began eating tons..like 6 ounces at a time,but would then puke most of it back up! it came through in his newborn screen that he tested positive for CF..so off to toledo we went for a sweat test which of course was positive..we were devestated and didnt want anymore kids after this..but as we are seeing CF is very manageable and is livable..i dont want the next baby to have CF..but yes are going to have more kids..
***today's news:::: vince has chicken pox! his nose is now scratched open and since he is napping i put a little a and d on it with an itty bitty band aid! he is still eating OK but not as well as we would like..we go to see a GI on the 31st at 1130AM..and once again that vince is taking enzymes he is very constipated..so that will also be discussed!!!! we went an applied for a loan yesterday so we can purchase our very first home! we also were able to file our taxes and are getting more back than last year :) yippie!
