Our firstborn Lucas

So, back in 2005 we were actively trying to get pregnant with the assistance of our fertility specialist Dr. Lu. We went through two cycles of Chlomid unsuccessfully. Our third attempt doing an IUI resulted in my first pregnancy. We were so excited and thankful that it didn't take us too long to get pregnant. Here are a few pictures of Lucas' u/s.

And also a picture of me being 7 months pregnant. I will post a picture of me being pregnant with triplets later on.

I had a pretty uneventful pregnancy up until I was 29 weeks when I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I then had to go see a dietician and go on a strict diet which also included some sort of exercise. So, Victor and I went out for a walk every night for about 20 to 30 minutes. I never felt better and I ended up losing 7 pounds by the time Lucas was born. Lucas was born on April 30th, 2006, at 4:25 pm, weighing 6lbs 3.4 oz, measuring 20 1/2 inches. He was born via c-section since labor was not progressing and his heart rate was dropping during each contraction. Here are a few pictures taken after Lucas' birth.
