---Anne and Gary Keynon
She tells us, "Great News! We found out a week ago with three home pregnancy tests that I am pregnant! I guess I went overboard with three tests, but the first one was very faint since I did it a little early, so I bought a kit with two tests the next time. After the second one came out positive also, I had nothing to do with the third test, so I figured what the heck and did it again just for grins and giggles. My husband thinks I've gone insane! Ha Ha" Although she hasn't determined an official due date, her calculations say it's January 3rd 2000.
Jennifer says she's getting a little sick now and then, but her attention for now is more on her year-and-a-half old toddler and getting him potty trained. She also is concerned that this will be a healthy pregnancy since a previous one ended in a miscarriage on January 28th of 1999. She says, "this time I'm not so much worried about my weight. As long as I don't miscarry again, I don't care if I gain 50 lbs!
She says the doctors assure her that the chances of it happening again are very slim since my first pregnancy was so uncomplicated. She says the miscarriage was probably due to the fact that she was very ill with strep throat and a high fever when six weeks pregnant."
She says "the thought of having the first baby of the year is sort of a fun idea, but on the other hand, I wonder what my chances of actually being the first one actually are. Not very good I suppose, even if everything goes perfectly. There are thousands of women who get pregnant every day. But someone has to be the first and it's still fun to think about."
"I think it is important to know that my husband and I wanted a baby at this time in our lives, the fact that it could be a Y2K baby interests me more than my husband. He just wants a healthy baby, and doesn't really care when it comes. I feel sorry for all the children who are conceived at this time for all the wrong reasons."
"I have had a few problems so in February the doctor put us on Fertility drugs (a low dose)" says Jodi. "It did not decide to work until April. This was nothing we had really planned, but we are very happy none the less."
Jodi's ultrasound shows that she's due 12-31-99 but the doctor says 1-3-2000. Jodi says, "I really have not given much thought to having the first baby of 2000 or the last of 1999, but it would be cool. I just want it to be healthy and happy. I can not wait. It seems so far away but everyone says it will be here sooner than I think(or wish). I don't believe that. The doctor said this could be our only shot at children, so I can not wait!!"
