Who was the first person you told? Doug...then my TTC after MC girls!
How did your parents react? They were all happy but VERY cautious! They got a bit more excited after we saw a heartbeat at 6 wks (and 5 days), and even more thrilled when we went to the 3d u/s and found out the sex!

About the Baby

Will you keep the baby? This is a given… Absolutely!
Home or hospital birth? Hospital
Natural or medicated birth? I’ll most likely get an epidural, but we’ll see how it goes. 
Who will be in the delivery room with you? Doug...and probably the grandmas.
Will you breastfeed? I'm going to try.
Do you think you’ll need a c-section? I hope not.  Mom did, so if history repeats, then yes...
Will you cry when you hold the baby for the first time? I know it!
What’s the first thing you might say to him? How much I LOVE him!
Would you let someone videotape the birth? Ehh probably not.
Are you excited or scared about the birth? At this moment, no. But I'm sure I will be when the time comes.


  1. Time is flying! Happy almost 19 weeks!! I'm looking forward to following your "next half" and the months/years that follow! Have a wonderful weekend! Xoxo

  2. Just now reading this. I must have accidentally looked over it. I get all giddy reading your posts. I pray you don't need a c-section, but if you end up having one, I'll be there to support you in any way I possibly can.
