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.
She's getting a bump! Have to get some maternity trousers this weekend as hers don't fit anymore already!!!!
Other symptoms nausea, tiredness, very emotional and hungry. She's getting a lot of cramps or what she describes as baby stretching!! V. Cute! Can't beleive about now baby will have a heartbeat!!!! So amazing!
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 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.
Hey MummyPony! How is the wife doing? Anymore symptoms? Not much going on here except the boobs are filling out. Goes for her second beta Tuesday so waiting to see what those #s are going to be. Have you guys gotten your betas yet?
