We basically gave up when we got the phone call from Emilee's (DD) birth Mom and she said she was pregnant again and did we want to adopt the baby....it took us about a second to say YES!!!!! So I feel great physically but adopting comes with its own set of worries and concerns....we feel pretty confidant but until we have her home in our house we won't breathe very easy. Ahhhh us fertility challenged ladies are a strong bunch and no one could ever say we didn't want to be parents with every fiber of our beings! Good luck at appt and keep us updated...we go on Monday for one final check and if all looks the way they want then we will schedule the induction for Friday February 3rd....Oh I just realized you get the big gender surprise on birth day! Ok so I want to guess...answer me a few questions....what was the HB rate? Are you carrying low or high? And if you put your arms at your side and then put your arms in front of you are your hands up or down


Katie,
I did know your story but I had forgotten that was you. I'm sorry. I feel like a heel!!!! I do understand the concerns you have and I'll be praying for everything to go very smoothly!!!!!!!

Heart rate at Friday's u/s was 160.

I'm only 5'0" so I feel like I'm carrying everywhere. LOL I do think baby has dropped so I guess I was carrying high??? I don't know really.
hands are down

What's your guess?

Nancy - No worries don't feel like a heel! I am going to guess a girl....they say a heart rate above 140 indicates girl and I think hands up is girl and hands down is boy. So for you & my test it is 50/50! Hah! Do you have names picked out.....we are getting close....I know I will call her Olivia but we can't decide about the middle name...that is the hardest one for me I really want to honor someone in my family so my choices have been Wolfe (mothers maiden name & she is an only child) Irene Grandmother, Caroline Great Grandmother....we are leaning towards Wolfe since it will make my Mom so happy and I think it is unique and has a special meaning behind it....Olivia Wolfe Brackeen.....Kinda pretty? I don't know....torn......

Cool. Well I look fwd to seeing if you are correct! :-)

Names .... ugh We are struggling. We like Jude for a boy. Not sure about a middle name.

We like Hadassah for a girl. Again, not sure about a middle name.

Time is quickly approaching so we are going to have to get serious about this.

I like Olivia. That is a great name!

Nancy: I just realized that you were waiting to find out the gender. OMG! I could never be that strong. How have you fought off the urge to know? A few years ago, I quit smoking after smoking for a long time and I think that took less will power than waiting to find out the gender!

No, I'm quite sure quitting smoking is harder than not finding out gender. :-)

It really hasn't been hard once we got past the 20 week u/s. Because I'm having a singleton, we've only had that one u/s and then last week we had another to determine baby's position. As soon as I saw the u/s tech, I told her we didn't know gender and didn't want to know and that was it. If we were having lots of u/s, I think it would be harder but with just having those two, it's been easier.

This is probably our only child (unless we win the lottery) :-)

Nancy - I love your names there are so unique....Jude is a awesome boys name I love that, our boys name was Jacob and for the girl what a beautiful name....how do you pronounce it and what origin is it? So exciting that we are this close!!!!

Thanks Bliss...I think that is the direction we are leaning towards Olivia Wolfe.......

Hope you all are having a wonderful Thursday night....we are very very close to being done with the Sundance Film Festival it ends on Sunday....so we get our town back from all the PIB's (People in Black)! Can not wait!!!

I like Jacob as well. Soooo many names to choose from and yet only one child.... LOL LOL

You pronounce Hadassah like this: (hah DAH sah) The origin is Hebrew. Here is more info. on the name:

Hadassah is from the Hebrew meaning "myrtle tree". It is a symbol of victory and a symbolic name for girls born on Sukkot because a branch of the myrtle bush, which has a lovely fragrance, is one of the Four Species.
Hadassah was the Hebrew name of Esther, the Jewish queen of King Ahasuerus of Persia, who save her people from the wicked plans of Haman. Thus Hadassah is also a symbolic name for girls born on Purim because Queen Esther is the central character in the Scroll of Esther which is read on Purim.

Lyd - Sorry about losing one of the babies...that is tough....so happy though that you have a strong sticky little survivor in there! Will be praying for an un-eventful happy pregnancy!

Wishing - Thanks, I think we are definitely going in that direction and are very happy with it! Naming is always the most difficult for us and we like to have it done before so we can just relax and wait for the arrival of our precious peanut.

Tuffy - How was your scan today? Did you get to find out sex of LO?

Hope everyone else is having a great night.....smiles all around...... :wink:
