Hi ladies,My C-section went off without a hitch and we welcomed Joshua Robert Gellerstein to the world on Thursday, November 3rd at 9:45am. At birth he weighed 8lbs 6oz and was 19 3/4 inches long. I kept my pump on for the surgery which was not the original plan, but worked out quite well. My BG was 120 prior to surgery but adrenaline increased it throughout the day so by bed time I was hovering around 200. Since being home and breastfeeding, my numbers have been fantastic (without really…See More

Hi Andrea!

Thanks so much for your comment! I corresponded with Katie yesterday and she is adding me to the listservs/forum. Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town on August 11th (I would change my travel plans for this if I could!) but am going to do everything in my power to come to the last two meetings in August. I go to school in Rhode Island, so I guess I'll only get a taste of the group this month, and be able to really get involved after I graduate in May and am back in NY full time again.

Thanks so much for the comment and friend-add!
