Introducing myself (losses ment.)

After four consecutive losses, it looks like I finally got one that is sticking! I am a little over 20 weeks, so halfway there. I figured it was about time to introduce myself. My name is Deb. I am having my 6th child (4th DIY baby) in July. We already know that she is a girl. We are going to name her Emily Therese. There is some question about whether or not they will let me have her at the birthing center because I had surgery for a giant paraesophageal hernia 2 years ago, and they are concerned about the risk of 2nd stage labor. I think we will be able to work it out, because my surgeon said it is safe enough (small risk of re-herniation). For some reason, that letter never got to the midwife.

I'm so happy that you feel comfortable about sharing now! I love your humor, "4th DIY baby". What a beautiful name.
I hope the surgeon's letter materializes.

Thanks. My mom's name was Therese Emily, so we chose the name in her honor.

Is there French in her background? Therese is very French. Biggrin

My mom was full-blooded German, but she was named after St. Therese Lisieux (the Little Flower).
