Great news that the girls are here and doing well. Hoping the vaginal birth will have you healing quickly. Welcome little ones.
Okay, now I can get properly excited for Kinza and her girls:
I added you and your girls to the roster. Let me know if you want to add any more details when you're up to it. (And if I got things right!) I hope recovery is going well for you and your little ones are figuring out how to keep warm.
to everyone else - have I missed putting any expectant mamas on our roster?
AFM, 32 weeks, and still quite pregnant. Battling swelling off and on, but otherwise doing well. Sooooo ready to not be pregnant any more, but I obviously want this guy to be fully baked before coming out.
Oh, and I was just reading the online notes from my mw, and there's a note that they estimate his weight at 5 lbs 6 oz. I don't know why they write things in my chart they don't tell me (especially since I can look at it online), but HOLY COW - I hope that estimate is off! I'm only 32.5 weeks, for crying out loud - at this rate, I'm going to have a 12 lb baby! The estimate was based entirely on palpation, though, and I have no idea if that's more/less accurate than ultrasound estimates, which I know are not that reliable either. The funnier thing is I had another practitioner (not a mw, but someone who has worked with them) tell me just two days earlier that my baby was still quite small - probably only 3.5 lbs. Maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle?
CONGRATS!!! Welcome to Juniper Lee!! And bravo to you for getting on here so soon after she came! Can't wait for pictures and more story when you get the time!
Hopefully LTB will be around soon to tell us her little one is here!
AFM, 34 weeks! This does not really seem possible! Some time in the next 8 weeks, we will meet our little guy. And then we will be parents. AHHHHHHHHH!!! At least we finally start birth classes this week. And we had the baby shower, so baby now has a bed and a car seat, and socks - all things I was worried about. Still don't have a sheet for the cosleeper, or enough diapers or any wipes or a potty for EC, but we're getting closer. Oh, and a sling. Need one of those! But at least he has clothes and a bed and a carseat. I hope he keeps cooking for awhile!
Our little boy was born on Saturday, after an absolutely amazing labor. Will be back to write more some time later. He needs to be held basically the whole time and nursed about 98% of it. I like a baby who knows he needs to be with momma. ;)
(Julie, thank you. You made me cry... in a good way.)
Okay I'll double post because I am actually confused here. So I also frequent another infertility board elsewhere and some dude was posting about how he and his wife will never have kids for X reasons and he's depressed about it. I posted stating I sympathized because I'd suffered for many years before finally getting lucky, and he replied that I had no right to be posting because I will never understand the grief and finality of it all. I was taken a back, because well yes, I am currently pregnant and (knock on wood) will get a viable child out of this, but that doesn't invalidate the years of pain and suffering I went through, does it?
I am just not sure how to react to that. I reacted a bit rudely because I was just trying to sympathize with how much that sucks, and I felt like I didn't deserve that statement. I went back and reworded it to be more polite but I'm just :\
