    @pawcall thank you so much! It's lonely sometimes when people don't get it. I'll take any advice I can get! 

    @ugoglencoco I so hope ours is easy too! He has a LOT of negative reactions to other kids and babies, especially if they are making loud noises. He is super verbal and will tell a baby "STOP YELLING WHILE IM TRYING TO EAT MY BACON" or something similar. He will wear headphones sometimes which helps. If you know of any good social stories or anything you did that helped I would be grateful! 

    @Noellee2005 yay! Due date buds!

    @jka427 - honestly I am dreading telling my son.  We won't be telling him for quite some time, and when we do, i'm probably going to ask his team (therapists, school counselor, that kind of thing) for help.  If he so much as sees or hears a baby, he will loudly tell the world that he HATES babies.  I think for him, he doesn't like that they are loud (headphones do help for us too, a bit), unpredictable, and tend to touch him.  He doesn't like to be touched unexpectedly and he really doesn't like children, his peers included. 

    He is fantastic with adults, honestly, I think he's funny and insightful and fun to be around - but he seems to think kids are a waste of his time and do weird things (like play) and overall it's just a struggle to get him engaged with non-adults.

    All of this is to say that I'm not looking forward to telling him we're bringing home a tiny human.  But we'll get there ;-)
    We should get them together. I could have written this about my son!!!!!

    I can finally post! I'm a FTM due Nov 21! I'm currently in PA, where we plan to put roots down. We're very excited but nervous. We moved to the area early Feb and found out on 3/11 I was 3w5d ...talk about it happening right away. Tried for 5 months after getting off the pill. Pleasantly surprised it happened that quickly! I have my first appt at 7w exactly! 
    @kaitlinliz ; - do you know what hospital you plan to deliver at?  Not sure what part of PA you're in but I'm in the philly suburbs.

  • @DsMom Yay! Due date buddies! 
    **TW I definitely understand your feelings about  such an early loss... it was a really hard on me, but it seems like nothing compared with what some women go through. It's weird, because the first time I got pregnant I was so sure that it happened, way before I finally POAS, I knew we'd done it. Then after the MC, I wanted so badly to just be pregnant again, but I was tracking my ovulation and it never came (or so I thought).... I was so heartbroken and sure that this cycle wasn't going to be the one, then, lo and behold, BFP. Just goes to show that your brain and body will play tricks on you, I guess :) /TW**

    BTW, we also live 1 1/2 hours from the nearest hospital (that does deliveries, at least), and for that reason (especially as a FTM), I won't be doing a home birth, but I am veeerrryyyy nervous about that drive down to the hospital/birthing center while in labor.....

    Shameless plug for Lankenau Hospital! I delivered my second there and had a great experience. 

    We have a lot of PA ladies on this BMB!

    I'm totally delivering at Lankenau!  I had my son there in 2011 and it was a really great experience, all things considered.

    10/16 - azoo dx confirmed. more bw + TRUS to determine differential dx. 3/17 - genetic labs, renal & repeat scrotal u/s.

    of a successful vas reconstruction less likely, IHHO. | Waiting for DH's exploratory/retrieval attempt till after 06/06/17.

  • @jess0211  I'm about 45 minutes north of Allentown! 
    @kissthesky32 No I have no clue yet! There's one down the street from us, but I heard it can be very expensive. So I've been looking - our insurance changes soon so I have to really wait til then to see who's covered.
