Well, it's taken me ages to join the DDC but here I am, officially in 3rd trimester and showing up to say hello.
I'm a first-time mama-to-be in Sonoma County, CA, due Feb 25ish with a little girl. My wife and I ttc 2x using frozen sperm from a cryobank, but then a lovely and generous friend offered his genetic material and the rest is history. We're incredibly excited to embark on this grand experiment with not just our new little one, but our new bonus family member--her "uncle"--too.
That said, after a bleeding incident and preterm labor scare at 23w, we're doing our best to keep our energy as calm and patient as we can to encourage the babe to stay in there until she's good and cooked.
I've reached the point in pregnancy where I think I'm becoming a bore to those around me because all I can think about is birth, baby, and becoming a parent. It would be great to connect here with those of you who can relate!
