The wonderful Kirsten Wallace with her daughter Aviana (2). Kirsten is also 33 weeks pregnant with her second, due in November. When Kirsten was 18, she was told that she had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and would never have children of her own, or if she did she would have to utilize fertility treatments to get there. Despite the warnings, she conceived without issue unexpectedly. Aviana's pregnancy was great, Kirsten struggled with morning sickness but was otherwise okay. She was born vaginally with an epidural due to her posterior position and was able to breastfeed right away. Aviana is still breastfeeding, and Kirsten hopes to tandem feed once the new baby arrives. They decided to try again very quickly so that the kids could grow up close in age. Conception took a lot longer this time and Kirsten had to rely on Clomid and other fertility treatments. She hasn't been as sick this pregnancy but has had a few complications. The baby has a single vessel umbilical cord and is measuring quite small. Thankfully he's growing steadily, just in lower percentiles, so everything is looking great this time around. Kirsten had hoped to have a homebirth but is going to deliver in the hospital with a student midwife assisting. She is hoping for a natural waterbirth this time. When Kirsten was growing up, she had family members who forbid her from having seconds and told her to suck her stomach in at age 6 or 7, things they would never have said to her brother. She doesn't feel anyone should be subjected to that and wants to set a better example for both her children.
