    Being dialated or effaced at this point isn't really a good indicator of when labor will start IMO how you are feeling is much better indicator. Hope your GBS is negative!

    KUP on your "doula" plans.

    I'm glad you had a good and uneventful appointment!

    Here's hoping the GBS test comes back all clear for you!

    Love,

    Not a dumb question! We actually are not sure of that yet! I don't think Steven wants to be on the birth certificate. We know that legally Missy cannot be on it, we may look into second parent adoption, but I am going to make a will stating what I want to happen if something were to happen to me.

    Steven has one biological daughter with Marilyn, there are 3 others that she had from a previous marriage but he takes care of all of them. Penelope is his daughter and she is 7 years old. She is very excited to be having a sister! She is so adorable and so I know my lo will be too!

    Yeah, I've decided that I am not going to count on any of that. I know she will come when she is good and ready

    I emailed a couple local doulas yesterday and so far have gotten no response. In reality I don't think we can really afford a doula so I am trying to find a doula in training that will be low or no cost....not only will it help her build her reputation, it will give Missy and I some more support. So I'll keep you all posted on whatever happens.

    It's fun that your little lady will have your donor be a part of her life, and have a big sister. Is Christian close to the donor and his family? There are so many dynamics I've never thought of that you get to deal with. I hope your feeling well this weekend, and that your GBS is negative!

    Well, the donor (Steven) is Missy's cousin, so since he is family, we see them often and everyone loves Christian, and of course Christian loves them too.

    Yeah, it seems that it could get pretty complicated at times when you really read into it. We decided we are never going to lie to Phoebe about the situation. She will know the way everyone is related....Christian has done so well with all of it. We taught him early on about acceptance and all of the different types of families there can be. Christian has 3 sets of grandparents (Missy's parents, His dad's parents, and my parents ) Phoebe will be the same. She will have my parents, Steven's parents, Missy's parents ) Christian loves this! It all means extra love for him and Phoebe will be no different.

    I know there will be things that come up that we haven't thought about, but we are ready to face them.


    Nicole~ I am feeling good. I lost some of my mucus plug last night and more today. I know that doesn't mean labor is tomorrow but it is a step in the right direction!

    Hey! Losing your mucous plug is one step in the right direction, a positive sign your body is getting ready!
