Just wanted to tell everyone I am pregnant with my 2nd child. I'll keep everyone updated. I'm optimistic because my OB/GYN has "heard" of ichthyosis. That's a start [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

I found this neat "ticker" so I wanted to try and add it. Talk to you all soon.

Congratulations! Let us know how things are progressing. I'm glad your OB is willing to check out ichthyosis. That is definitely a start!

LOL thats so funny, at least she has heard of it! Thats a little bit of what our new peds doctor said when we first moved back to Virginia. She was hilarious. Anyway, its not necessarily whether they have heard of it anymore to us, its more or less...will you find out more about it?
I am so happy for you, congrats.
I hate surprises, are you going to find out if its a boy or a girl? The d--- triple screen ruined it for us with the third. once that blood test came back with low estriol we said "great another boy!" and the doctor looked at us and said "how do you know????"
Arent the doctors cute????
I am so happy for you!!!!!!!

I want it to be a surprise. But was thinking if the test came back positive for ichthy, the surprise will be up. My husband wants to know...we'll see. Maybe he'll have to work during that ultrasound [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

Have the doctor put it in an envelope! LOL A friend had that done, of course by the time she reached the parking lot she had it torn open and was on the cell phone faster than you can say speed dial! LOL
We only did not know for our first born..I hated it and loved it. I hate surprises, but in todays world, there are hardly any babies born, that the parents had no idea until the birth-unless you are in the military that is. Most places still have the 1 ultrasound/sonagram rule, and if the baby does not pose for the camera..you have to wait. That is why we didnot know with the first. Congrats, I am so excited for you.

So I had my first visit with the OB/GYN and he turned his notebook and said, "I e-mailed F.I.R.S.T. ..." I don't think I heard him after that. Just blew my mind he actually did that before he even met me. I have blood test done next month, and an ultra sound the month after that. Time will fly, I know it. 1st trimester is officially over [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img] Thanks guys.

So I had my 4 month visit with my OB/GYN. We talked about the tests for diagnosis and decided not to do it. I really don't want to have an amniocetis (spelling?) and if tests come back positive for this baby I might feel pressured to have that done. Plus my husband is like 100% against having any tests done [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img] He isn't much of a talker when it comes to the bad things. So I've decided to think (and talk) positive and let nature take it's course. I'm having a planned C-Section anyways, so the labor part isn't even part of my concern. Next month I'll find out (baby willing) if I'm having a boy or girl. I'll keep you all updated.

Congratulations! How exciting! My husband and I have talked a lot about when we have our next child - we're planning to get pregnant this fall. Anyway, we have been doing the great debate about testing and about finding out the gender. The only way I know of to test for LI is through the amnio. Am I wrong? Is there another way that is less risky for the baby? (I know amnio is still fairly low risk, but since having my son (who has LI) I look at statistics very differently!)

How wonderful to hear about your OB/GYN taking a proactive part in learning about ichthyosis. That's wonderful! I have to laugh looking back at the birth of my son. My OB/GYN had never had any experience with ichthyosis before, and before they figured out what it was my son had, I'm sure he was doing his homework reviewing my files to see if he'd have a lawsuit on his hands!

Anyway, keep us posted on how it all goes! Blessings to you and the little "bun!"

Susie
