Any Non-Gestational Moms-to-Be out there?


Hi every one let me Introduce myself. My name is Kelley (44) and my Wife (35) is pregnant with our first child, due 3/26/13. I have two adult children from a previous relationship that I carried but it has always been my wife's dream to be pregnant and have a child. So we have embarked on this journey together.

A little bit about us. She is the one who is pregnant, I am the one who is the (as Leah so eloquently put it) is the conception guru. I charted temps, chose the donor, researched every single detail of conception methods, tips, procedures, drugs, etc. We are using donor sperm from a bank.

As I said I have had 2 children that I carried but being on this side of the fence has its own unique experiences and challenges. It would be great to find other Non-gestational moms out there to share this experience with.

My wife is carrying our first baby and is due on 23/3/13!

We used a private donor and ICI method, we're so lucky she fell pregnant on our first cycle!

Wife is doing well, no bump yet but she is cranky, emotional, boobs hurt and getting the baby stretching too. We went and looked at maternity clothes but she is kind of on the boyish side ( on the outside anyway, underneath she is all girly) so she turned her nose up at all of them. So I will probably end up getting her some over sized men's shirts and making maternity pants out of regular jeans. I also found a cute site, cafe press online that has a bunch of lesbian maternity shirts. So maybe I will get her a few of those.

I didn't do much an intro do hmmm let me
See

I'm Katy(27) wife is Catherine but shortened to Cat -(26) bizarrely we have the same middle name Victoria! I work in insurance and she works in Social Services.

Although we met our donor he won't have any part in bringing up our baby!

I'm in practical mode so buying stuff and thinking about decoratIng the nursery (hope our landlord lets us!) I'm finding some awesome deals for second hand items which is fun as I'm an eBay addict!

My nickname for baby is wigglemunch and I can't wait to meet them!

Do you have any name ideas? We like George for a boy and Flora for a girl

Hello Katy & Cat!

I am Kelley (44) and my wife is Jen (35) I have 2 children who are (I am going to sound old now ) your age. I have a daughter 27 and son 22. This will be Jen's first child.

I work in the legal/social service fields and I am a full time student is well. Jen works in the legal field. We are planning to buy a house soon but may stay her a while longer so we can afford for her to stay home with the baby fora while.

If we have a boy we will name him Justin and if it is a girl she will be a Kelley Jr.

I will be honest, having to grown children it took me a while to come to the decision to have another child, but now that we are here I am super excited.
