Ive always been a little "tlhick" but athletic and very active. After having 4 babies in 7 years, I would just get the pregnancy weight off and before I knew it, I was pregnant again!
Now that my husband and I know our family is complete, we feel this is my oppourtunity to have something for me.
This decision has not come lightly. I've been researching this option for 2 1/2 years....I decided 2years ago to see a dr, but didn't have a good feeling about that Dr. We found out 3 months after seeing that Dr that I was pregnant with baby number 4.
I did more research after having our fourth baby and found a dr that I'm comfortable with and love. It's amazing that I'm getting this opportunity.
September 27th was my band date. I gave her a name....Bon Qui Qui. Because she will "get crazy" on me if I mess up! I'm thrilled to be a Bandit!
