Since I'm shopping from a catalog...

... I might as well shop the J Crew catalog...

Oh, it's on!

I'm getting excited!

And here's a question for you -- how do you ask a gay friend's boyfriend, but not the gay friend himself, to donate? I mean, I'm friends with both of them, as they've been together for years, but you know how the person you met first is the official friend of record? How on earth do you ask?!

Maggie, this is exciting! I don't know how you ask the boyfriend but not the friend except to just ask and then say something like "I love you both, but boyfriend has better teeth." Or something like that.

Wow!

Okay, so I found your blog yesterday when searching for info on beloved Henry Santoro...and today I returned to see what was new. And I came across theis post and the "motherhood" theme and, subsequently, your radiology pics. Soooo, I just have to say that you are so brave. I've had those tests (cried like a baby during the hysterwhatever), gone through that process...and it's not at all fun. Best of luck!

Oh, BTW, I had a live-in donor, so I can;t help with the boyfriends of the boyfriend thing. But all that comes after that is tough. But worth is. Pumpkin turned 1 last week!

Thank you so much for the support! And I'm so glad to know I was not the only one to cry through the pinging. They said it would be a bit of pressure, I thought I was being a big wimp, because it's the weirdest kind of pain, you know? And then I was all, if I can't even handle this test, how will I handle the actual labor?

But it will all be worth it, of course, so thank you so much for your support.

And for anyone who's wondering, the gay couple said "no thanks", so it's back to the bank for me. I'm leaning towards the architect in the links above, any thoughts, folks?

Hmm, I'm partial to Canadians, but it so doesn't matter - intelligence comes from the mother - I swear I read this in an actual medical study. And as long as he's not from a long line of depressed addicts with bad teeth, you can overcome nature with nurture.

As for the test "pressure?" My fanny. It HURT. As for labor, can't tell you much since I never had an actual contraction. Emergency C. Horrible. But Pumpkin is worth it.

Oh, and do not watch "A Baby Story" on TV. Just don't. Trust me. Some things you just do not need to see...
