A mom at last...

Jan 28, 2009 - 18 comments

Just wanted to let all my old medhelp friends know that after 3 yrs of trying in some way or another I am going to be a Mom in April.  And no I am not pregnant...gave up on that awhile ago.  We decided to adopt and were recently matched with a birthmom.  She is wonderful and the situation is perfect for us.  She is due in mid April.  So no 9 months to prepare...I got two and half and I am scared to death. :)
I know I haven't been around in awhile as I had to take some time out to regroup and heal from all the failed ivf cycles.  I do still check up on a few of you though.  Yes, I am the silent stalker. ;P   I hope everyone is doing well.

Holy Sh!t JRK!  

Con-friggin-gratulations!  Hahahaha!  I am sitting here with goosebumps!  That was so fast...well, no doubt since the 2 of you are a perfect couple!  I am sure she picked you all out of about 90 million couples looking to adopt!

Thank you ladies.  Yes we do know the is boy.  We have a name picked out, however we want to discuss it with the birthmom, b/c she has been calling him something and if she would like us to use that name we would like to do that for her.  If not we will go with our name (Hudson), however they are pretty similar to each other.

This is so wonderful!  Prayers do work!

Like I have always said in the past, and sometimes posted online, I believe that God has three answers... Yes... Not right now... and... I have something better in mind... For you, my friend, he had something better in mind for both you and this new baby boy!

Awwwwe!  What a lucky, lucky little guy!  Also, what a lucky birthmom to know you 2 will be his parents!  I wish I could hug her myself and tell her how smart she is....

We've been talking to our birthmom just about everyday.  She is so absolutely wonderful.  Makes me want to adopt her too.  She sent us pics of herself, her daughter and the 4D  u/s of our future son.  Her and are daughter are beautiful.  Our son looks like a little alien in the 4D picture :), but is beautiful to us. I am still trying to catch my breath with all this.  Time is ticking down and we have so much to do.  I need to go baby shopping in a bad way.  My mom is visiting this weekend so hopefully she can help me.  Babies R Us scares the daylights out of me.  Way too much stuff.

SDS: First - Congratulations!!!! We are thinking about maybe going that route after a bit....Anyways, I've seen some adoptive parents have actual baby showers! I mean, why not? You are still going to have a newborn baby and adopted or not, the baby will still need the same things. You could blow up some of the u/s pics and frame them and put them up at the shower. I'm sure everyone would love it!!!
