I just moved from SI, but as Bonnie said we have an awesome LLL group of like minded moms. I love them so much I still keep up with them even though I live an hr away. If you haven't already you could always sign up for the LLL SI yahoo group too. It's really active. There is a link off the one Bonnie posted! Cindy
I didn't use them, but I'm right in the area (one town over in Budd Lake) and just had an awesome home birth with Jessica Lawlor, and her backup Dina who actually ended up being at the birth. Just writing in case you were researching other options too. I know how overwhelming researching can be!
I agree with you wholeheartedly about seeking several opinions. What a blessing to know this early and have time and options! The surgeries are nerve-wracking but at least you get to choose the best option for your son and family.

I feel for you. I have two boys and as much as I love them and wouldn't trade them for the world I'd also love to have an additional child be a girl. Regardless, you (and I if it comes to that) will love our kids whatever their sex. You'll be an amazing mama to 4 boys, or 5 boys or...

I'm constantly surprised at how many people don't, or don't think it's important. I think it's a hugely important distinction because *making* the distinction points out that gender is not a part of your essential nature, but rather is constructed by society (as some of you have said). I laugh when I see it wrong on...
Awesome! How fun is that!
I agree with the above mamas when I say to be easy on yourself. Things happen and its not your fault. I'm sorry Julian will have to go through surgeries and you'll have to deal with that type of pain. Hugs.
