I can't keep secrets

Post by fellare » Wed May 07, 2014 10:00 pm

I'm ttc. I found a sperm donor. Insemination day is on the 23rd. I'm so excited!!! I've thought it through a lot and I'm pretty sure I've got everything covered. I know the risks. I know it will be hard work but very much worth it.

Anyway, just wanted to share so you can hold my hand for the next two weeks and the 2ww after that.

Guess what the due date would be!!! Hoping it's first time lucky, otherwise I might wait until due date is in spring. I couldn't do a newborn in this cold Melbourne weather. Not when the house goes down to 14C as soon as I turn the heater of.

Good luck!
I loved have a winter baby - lots of snuggles and baby wearing is much more comfortable when it's not in the high 30s!
And cute knitted jumpers make more sense too

True to that last one. Ds wore hardly any of the things I had made pre conception. I made a lot of cotton tops for him.

You sound very excited! Have you had a chance to work through things from DSs birth?

I know when we were TTC #2 I would need to work through them, but once I got pregnant, it was inevitable and i couldnt put it off.

I know you were unable to have the birth you wanted and I think its important to be able to start thinking about who you can be supported by in your pregnancy and birth.

It wasn't about not getting the birth I wanted, it was about getting screamed at, poked with explicit non consent and being so terrified that I had five outer body experience and want there at the moment of birth. I don't care about the interventions as such, it was the complete lack of respect and fear mongering that caused the trauma
Still seeing a psych weekly. Going to have a home birth unless I'm dying. I'll have to work harder on the trauma now, but am also dealing with the divorce and past child abuse. But I'll have to work on it, thinking about going to hospital make me vomit.
