I love your story! I'm glad you missed your December cycle so you could be in Oct 2008!! Can't wait to see your little girl!!
Congrats and welcome to your lodge!
Keky~ I was so happy to know I was having an October baby! October is my favorite month! I love Halloween and the fall in general!
Thank you everyone for going through this "home stretch" with me, I think it's wonderful to have a place like this, and not just a lodge, but I mean pg.org...I have met so many wonderful people here! I tell my mother about the boards and she is so jealous. She wonders where this kind of support was when she was pregnant. We are so lucky to have each other!
So I have an OB appointment tomorrow evening. I plan on talking to my doc about wanting a doula. I also have my GBS test and an internal. I'm anxious to see if there has been any progress with all of these take my breath away bh contractions. We'll see....ok well, talk to you all tomorrow! Good night!!
I agree, pg.org is a great source of support, but this board in particular is a really great place, everyone is so encouraging and positive!
Keep us posted on your dr appointment!
Welcome to your lodge pretty lady!!!!! I am so glad you are due in October! October is a wonderful MONTH! Good luck today at your appt. I have one also and get to have my check and GBS test! Negative GBS result vibes for both of us!!!!
Have you found a doula or are you just thinking about it? I would love to get one but we just can't afford one! Good luck Becca!
That could be really cool to have her as a doula type person. This little one is coming into such a big group of people who will love her that having one more to welcome her could be really nice. Is your donor going to be able to come and meet her soon after her arrival too?
Yes of course, we really never discussed him being in the delivery room and I'm not all that sure I want him in there when she comes out, but he can definitely be at the hospital! He is going to play an active role in her life. I know it sounds like it will be confusing, but she will know that he is her dad. The situation with Christian's father worked out so well that we really wanted a known donor who would be willing to be in the child's life. Missy's cousin being that person is a blessing because we know and trust him and his wife.
So I am back from my appointment. I had a NST and everything was great. She also did the GBS test and I will have the results next week I think. I had to see the nurse practitioner because my doc had an emergency so I didn't talk to her about my doula plan.
I had an internal check and there is no dilation at all....I'm closed up tight but she did say that my cervix is low and about 20% effaced.
I go back in two weeks for another ultrasound...I'm so excited to see my baby again!
Anyway, pretty uneventful. Just wanted to update you all!
thats great that the donor will get to play an active roll! Does he have any kids of his own? This may be dumb question- but who all will be listed on the birth certificate?
