So I have only posted in the Nov DDC once I think....We could actually post here. It's not very active there yet anyhow..
So my DW & I are expecting! October 31st by her Ovulation date & Nov 3rd by her LMP. We are a lesbian couple & decided to try geting pg with a known sperm donor.
I have 3 older kids myself, 15...12 & 10 year old kiddos. They all have the same father & he actually was our chosen donor, since my DW is carrying & we wanted the 3 kids we have, to be blood relation to the new baby :-)
We got pg on our first try in January--We did 4 inseminations between Jan 22nd & Feb 7th. Her period was due Jan 27th, and although it did come, it was very light & short & not normal, and she is very normal each month! I, of course, obsessed and made her take a million pg tests & we got our first + on February 20th!!
Went to her OB on Monday Feb 22nd for HCG blood work, then back on the 24th for more blood work, to make sure her levels were rising....Needless to say, they were & the pregnancy was confirmed!! Yay!! :~)
We had gone to the ER for something this weekend (Sat) and the Dr. ordered an U/S & bloodwork. The U/S showed the yolk sack & baby, but no heartbeat yet--Tech said baby measured 5w5d, so still early for the heartbeat to be seen.
Our original U/S was scheduled for the 22nd of March, but the ER Dr. wanted her to follow up with her Dr Monday (Yesterday) and they want her to come in on the 15th of March instead, for U/S.
During our ER visit, we found out that her blood type is A-.....She did not know her blood type previously, so she will need a few shots during her preganncy, the first being at 28 weeks I think they said.
This is her first pregnancy/baby, so she gets to go through the fun, exciting stuff, but I am right there 110% all the way, and want to be as involved as possible!
Her bbs are sore, she is sleeping & eating a lot, but has only vomited 2 times so far ;)
So anyway, enough on us...Happy to be here, sticky baby vibes to us all!! ((Hugs))
