30 weeks! Frustration and a little vent

I had my 30 wk appt and it went really well. Baby and I are doing great and right on track. I go back in 2 weeks and the only kinda bad thing is he strongly recommends/prefers continuous fetal monitoring which I wanted to avoid but I'll trust his judgment and go w/ it. He also said to bring in my birth plan and we'd discuss it so we're on the same page.

Since I want to go med free there are some things I'd prefer that should make it easier, at least based on what I've learned/read. Of course the only thing that matters is the baby is born safe and healthy. Once I've hashed it out I'll post my final birth plan and any changes the Dr. recommends.

My frustration comes from the fact that we still don't have the nursery set up or even started. FIL is supposed to help Banks paint the nursery but he keeps putting off coming over. I can't convince DH to just do it already. It wouldn't be as big a deal if we didn't have a ton of gifts and nursery items stuck in the guest room. Everyone was very generous at our first shower and I have nowhere to put the baby items and it's driving me crazy. I might could deal if my Mom and BFF weren't coming out for my 2nd shower but the guestroom HAS to be ready by the time they come out which is ~ 2.5 weeks from now.

I keep telling DH that the EDD is a guess and the baby can come anytime from 38 wks to 41+ weeks but he seems to think that the baby won't be here until Aug. 31st and we have all the time in the world. I'd love to have things settled and set up by 35 wks so that whenever that baby comes we're ready. Not to mention I know I'm only gong to get more tired as time passes.

Anyway, that's what's up w/ us!

I'm so with you on the wanting to be completely ready to welcome baby much sooner than the EDD. Luckily my DH is on board with this, although he also has the "We have most everything, and if Baby came tonight I could go get whatever else we needed. It would be fine" attitude. At our 34wk appt, Dr. said that I've reached the magic mark and if I went into labor they would not try to stop me (because although a few more weeks would do Baby's lungs some good, if Baby is coming there is probably a good reason and his chances are great on the outside by this point). This totally freaked me out because- let's face it, heck yeah I want to be not pregnant anymore and I REALLY want to meet my Sweetie- but we are not ready. We don't even own a single bottle!!! Yikes! I feel this huge sense of urgency to ready everything. If only my feet would let me stay upright long enough to get any of it done...
I hope the painting gets done. Tell DH that if he doesn't do it by x date you are going to have to hire it out. Maybe that will light a fire under him. Haha...

Hi! I just wanted to say that I find your story very inspirational. My daughter is 15 months and also has TS and reading your blog has given me such hope that she too will be able to have a baby through a donor egg.

Hi there, I used to be a regular reader of your blog last year, but lost track of you until today. I'm so happy to see that you are pregnant. Congratulations! My daughter is 4 yrs old and also has Turner's Syndrome.

Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy! It's funny because I found your blog link through The Nest. I didn't know you were a Nestie too. ;-D Congrats again!

Our journey has begun!… secretly though

If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

Exciting things going on around here!

Hope - Don't know what's up with all the spam responses but mine is real! Congrats on becoming a Momma! I'm sure your little one is here now and you are so busy you don't have time to post, but I just took a pass to see how you are doing. I've been pretty pitiful at updating since Laura came along, but I hope to see a few new posts soon w/pics of the baby :)

Vanessa said...

I was following your story and I am really interested in the outcome. I hope everything is okay.

After 2 failed IVF cycles we were recommended to look into egg donor options. Having been told it could take up to 18 months to find a suitable donor in the UK, we were advised to look abroad where the process would be quicker. After lots of research and conversations with various clinics, we chose Ukrainian BioTexCom. We were impressed with the information available on their website, the latest technologies on offer and the communication from our manager who was excellent throughout. Her response was professional, helpful and prompt.
Our doctor made a plan to suit our needs involving a simultaneous donor egg and own egg cycle and we were contacted well in advance so had plenty of time to organize travel. The clinic took care of all our medication before, during and after our treatment which was a worry off our mind.

We travelled to Kiev in August 2013 and found the city to be a great place to stay and explore. Having never been to Ukraine before, we were not disappointed with all it had to offer.

On arrival at the BioTexCom we were impressed with the facilities and the warm welcome from all the staff, who spoke excellent English. Our experience could not have been made any easier from start to finish. Although this is a stressful and emotional time, the reassurance and care we were given allowed us to be more relaxed.

The nurses, embryologist and doctors explained all the procedures, gave us time to ask any questions and made sure we were completely happy before treatment commenced. We would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to all that require fertility treatment in the future.
