Ultrasound went really well today. Teddy is approximately 3lbs 13ozs, right where he should be. Yes, I had them double check to make sure he was a boy (and he most definitely is as evidenced by the pictures below.) He is currently sitting breech. (YEAH! NOT!!!!!) The doctor told me that he looks absolutely perfect and is right where he should be for size.
I read a lot of infertility blogs and it has gotten me wondering, am I an infertile or a fertile? SA was the one diagnosed with azoospermia, I was the one that got pregnant on our first try with DS. We waited 7 years for this baby, I looked longingly at the pregnant ladies and all the babies, I wondered when our turn would be. I had bariatric surgery because I was sure the issue was with me and knew that I wouldn't be treated at my pre-surgery size. I felt like an infertile for so many years but my question is, do I have a "right" to label myself that way? Technically, I can't. I didn't have to take medication, I didn't have a monitored cycle, I got pregnant very easily on our first try and have had a very easy pregnancy. I am blessed, I know that and that is a fact that I don't take for granted for even a second. However, it doesn't take away the fact that I felt like an "infertile" for so long. So, just because my DH isn't producing any sperm, does that make me an infertile?

Soooo SA and I have agreed from the very beginning that the baby will know that he came from DS. We aren't going to make a big deal about it and the DS will NEVER be referred to as a father parent or anything remotely close. He will always be known as the DS. We were also going to make sure whatever information we had on the DS would be made availabe to the baby. Since I am scrapbooking the baby's baby book, I included a simple two pages that included the childhood photo, the silouhette, the medical profile and the personal profile. No titles no nothing. I told SA about the page and he was upset all of sudden. Now no one outside our immediate family and a few of my close friends know about DS. Apparently the guys at his work have been giving him a hard time, asking him if he was sure the kid was his. It's a guy thing but seriously, why in the hell would you ask someone that. Now because of these assholes, he is not sure what he wants to do. UGH! I think not being able to feel the baby makes it a little more difficult. Whenever he comes running to feel the baby, of course its nap time and the show is over. Hopefully once the baby gets here, this too will change but it makes me worry a titch.
