Seraf, if you and Sara feel comfortable sharing more details about becoming a bone marrow donor, I for one would be very interested! 

 

My spouse is a much better cook than I am; and while neither of us are exactly "handy", I do many of the tasks with electric screwdrivers and such.  (I was *so* grateful to the person who gave A a push walker which required a master's in engineering to assemble...)

Cross posting all over the place, GGNJ, I don't ever buy new clothes to know! Our boys are both comfortable in the full color spectrum (Soren is wearing a brown shirt covered in hearts today, someone said something and I said "boys and girls both have hearts").

GGNJ, she signed up when she was in Israel, I guess it's really hard for Jews to get matches or something. Gift of life foundation is the name of the group. I see signs up on campus all the time that ask "Got swabbed?" Sara said she thinks you can even contact them for a kit through the mail.

glassesgirl--I think those issues matter with any family configuration.  We are happy because we are a mix of complementary traits.  I'm carrying the baby and I kill the spiders.  My wife does all the cooking and looks forward to playing catch with our child.  We are who we are.  There was a study a couple years ago that looked at lesbian parents.  The kids turned out just fine and one of the only differences they could find from kids raised by male/female couples was that the kids were more likely to go into careers that were not stereotypical for their sex.

I hope Sara's surgery goes well! What a great gift for someone smile.gif

Cananny, I also have terrible anxiety around surgery and specifically c-sections. We did birthing from within prenatal classes with DD and there was actually a whole part focused on c-section births...perhaps you could read the book? I know it put my mind more at ease when imagining that I could end up with one...which I didn't but it was nice to have addressed that possibility.

Afm: 10 weeks tomorrow! Double digits! The nausea is mostly in the evenings now or if I eat too much. My anxiety level goes from almost zero to full on fast beating heart, etc. but mostly I'm so busy that I don't have time to think too much! It's 10 weeks has actually flown by and I'm grateful for that. I didn't feel movement until about 16 weeks with DD - is it true you feel movement earlier with subsequent babes? The RE said it looks like my placenta is anterior though which I've heard can make movement harder to feel too? It was posterior with DD.

Seraf, I don't buy many new clothes for A either!  Most of her day-to-day stuff comes in big lots from Craigslist, Ebay, Goodwill or the local consignment shops.  (I admit to a weakness for special holiday outfits, but even there I will try to use Zuliliy, or find an Etsy seller who's having a sale, or something.)

 

Thanks for the bone marrow donating information.  I don't suppose there's a special need for "Catholic American Mutt" donors...

 

Pokey, I think you're right that all family configurations have to think about gender stuff.  In this case, I was seeing quotes like (I had to check the UA to make sure we can quote from one thread to another orngbiggrin.gif ):

"The feeding bond is the strongest care-giving bond. That's why fathers, grandparents, and other people envy it. And Nature *means* for it to be the strongest care-giving bond. And Nature means for it to the the bond that the MOTHER shares with the child."

"Dads have their own unique bond, being generally stronger. They are the defenders and the roughhousers and usually the one to encourage a timid child to take a risk with his supervision."

"The father-child bond doesn't even come close to being as strong as the mother-child bond. And Nature designed it that way."

 

...all of which feels pretty goofy, and even hurtful, to genderqueer families like mine (where the primary caregiver might identify as "mother" one day and "father" the next).  Does that make any sense?

Hi All,

I'm jumping back in after a long time of not posting. Our little guy is 14 months old now, hilarious and wonderful (although not much of a sleeper).

First: Congratulations to Carmen and Max on your expected babies! I am so, so happy for both of you. I know what a challenge it was to get to this point. Hooray!!!!!

Cananny: I agree with the other folks who said that that wonderful thing about c-sections being so common is that doctors have lots and lots of practice with them and are very good at doing them. I had a different experience than you'll have (emergency cesarean after long labor), but I found the surgery itself to be totally painless and much less scary than I would have imagined. The first few days of recovery were harder for me, but it seems like most people feel better very quickly. I did notice on amazon that there are a number of books about planning for a c-section. I don't know if they would be interesting to you. Good luck!

Isa: At 14 months our little guy can now play independently for long periods of time. Maybe your little one will be able to soon too!

Hi to everyone else!

Carmen. Woo hoo!

GGNJ, lol, I think capitalizing nature was enough for me. I don't get into religious arguments and that person is making one. I'm sure if there's a person out there who needs Catholic American Mutt, they'd be really happy if you signed up. If you ever feel like talking about something that's none of my business, did the police come to give you a ride? Or did they expect non-compliance?

Seraf, I don't mind talking about it... The police came by to do a "welfare check". 

 

My phone was on the charger when my ped called with the test results - she tried twice in 20 minutes and then immediately sent the cops to our house.  Seriously!  (Needless to say, I've since changed pediatricians, and I've made sure that our new ped has my cell number, my spouse's cell, my mom's landline as a backup, etc etc.)

 

When the cops found out I hadn't been cleared for driving yet (four days postpartum), they called the volunteer first aid squad to give us a ride to the hospital.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that my old ped's phone comes up as "Private Number", and she didn't leave a callback number either of the times she called me...

 

Edited to clarify: this was the original pediatrician I'm talking about, not our new one (who rocks the house).

That's cool that Sara is donating marrow.  They actually do need mutts to register because it's harder to find marrow for mixed-race folks, although Catholic mutt may not be the kind they are looking for.

ggng--That does sound aggravating.  I'm sure there are plenty of "mothers" out there who aren't very bonded with their children and plenty of children who have stronger bonds with their "fathers."  As queer folks where there is often a gestational parent and a non-gestational parent, we have to deal with these things all the time.  No one wants to be judged as a parent who is less than.  I think that anyone who feeds a child can develop a strong bond.  A parent can give a baby a bottle of breastmilk and that bond is cemented when that babe stares up into your eyes.  If I were a man reading that conversation, I might be offended as well.  There used to be a McDonald's commercial where it was Dad's night with the kids and he took them out for Happy Meals, so I must assume that he is too stupid to fix dinner for his own children.  That always bugged me.  Anyway, I think I am rambling now.

GGNJ, that sounds pretty freaky.

Pokey, I think I said it up thread, I've bonded with plenty of people I've never fed. I do nurse Soren, but I'm a very rough and tumble parent and the potty parent. Soren occasionally asks to nurse with me instead of Sara but I get a lot of the smiles and adoration related to other areas of his life.

Hi Escher!

Birthmother just texted me to say her water broke then 15 minutes later she said she doesn't know if it did or not. She's going to the hospital to have it checked out. We are on pins and needles here packing just in case we have to take off tonight. Can pregnant women just pee on themselves and think it's the water?

Max!!!!! The pressure of the baby moving down can increase cervical secretions and quite a bit of liquid will come out that's not amniotic. My first was born within 24 hours of this.

Mrsandmrs and Bigfoot, yay!!!!!!!! Congratulations!

It was a false labor but if what Seraf said is similar we might be looking at labor really soon. We are staying put for now. It may have just been pee, who knows??

Woohoo! I know a singleton would be so much easier, but I am elated to get a two-fer deal. It is still so early. There was just a hint of yolk and it was too soon to see heartbeats, so we go back in a week. They measured 5w4d and 5w6d. We are according to LMP exactly 5w4d today. So far so good.

 

We are still feeling out when we want to tell the teenager. We are thinking once we see heartbeats it will be time. Mrs came up with a great plan of ordering a cake that tells him. I decided it should say, "Sorry, buddy. You're going to be a big brother." But then do we tell him the full story (twins) or hold off on that info until he has time to get used to the idea??

 

Also complicated: we have a consultation with a midwife tomorrow. Mrs. thought we should cancel, but I think we should just have our consultation and schedule our first appointment and cancel closer to that date if we still are sure there are two. It will be impossible to get back on their schedule and we don't want an OB unless it is twins.

 

Max - I am so excited for you! I did start to leak pee and thought my water broke towards the end of my pregnancy. Oh, the things we go through.

Max! I'm so excited for you guys--real labor must be coming soon!

Bigfoot and MrsMrs--congrats on twins! That's so awesome! I would say to meet the midwife and get started--is it possible that the midwife could still be involved in a twin birth? In any case, I'd meet and see if you like her, and then if you need to cancel later maybe she can give you a good referral. I think that cake would be hilarious.

She's here!
And so are the boys!

The practice we were looking at we believe doesn't do hospital births. We were hoping to use their birth house that is walking distance from our house. Apparently it is illegal in our state to have a twin birth at a birth house. I guess we do have a lot more research to do now that we actually have two embryos! But that is encouraging to know you have a midwife. I don't even know how to pick a provider. Last time I was pregnant I was a teenager and didn't pick my own, but somehow magically ended up with an awesome OB.
