We were matched about 2 weeks ago, and the due date is fast approaching (January 7)! Needless to say we have spent a lot of time preparing. Thank goodness I am a teacher, and have been off from school.
I have a few questions-
1. Meeting with EM-.
I remember seeing that some of you had given necklaces, and or lockets. Do you have any recommendations? (We gave EM flowers and photo albums when we first met. But I would like to give her something that would be more of a keepsake.)
Also- does anyone have any advice with interactions at the hospital? (Our agency gave us some advice, but this board has given me the best advice throughout this whole process- I can always use more)
2. Notifying People- We live in PA- (30 revocation period, and we have to wait 72 hours until TPR) I know a lot of people don't tell anyone until after the recovation period has ended. I dont think I will be able to go missing from work with no explanation for over a month. I have never taken so much as a sick day, so even after 1 day people are going to talk. I kind of want to "control the story" So does anyone have any advice here?
