DS: William, stillborn 4/1/2009 at 39 weeks
One furbaby - Sophie, our cocker spanielBaby's Gender (hopes or guesses):
BD timing says girl. Honestly, after losing William, it's so hard to say what I want. A girl, so I won't compare? A boy, because I can't imagine not having a boy after losing one? I don't know. My feeling, for some reason, is girl. DH wants a boy. But he always wants a boy!
If we have a girl, I'll have to buy all new clothes - oh darn! Names you like:
My favorite part! William was named after my dad, who died of a stroke 6 weeks before my son was stillborn... talk about a double whammy. He originally had a very Greek name, though, and we'll probably continue in that tradition, if DH had anything to say about it!Birth Plans/Preferences:
Eek! I've had 2 HB's and was planning a HB with William, until we couldn't find his heartbeat at a routine prenatal. I'd like to say HB again. I think it will be. But I'm not 100% sure. I'm scared, and will be seeing both an OB and a MW, probably.Anything else you'd like to share:
We have been trying to get pg since we lost William... and I'm so very happy to be expecting this baby. But I'm also anxious and scared in the midst of the hopefulness and excitement...
that I get to stay!
