Today is the first day...

Today is the first day that I have wanted to have Dawson here NOW...that I wanted to skip the rest of the pregnancy and just love on the little guy.  I am ready.  I know we have like 114 more days left but I want to see him and hold him now.  I want to count his little toes and fingers and compare his little features with both his daddy's and mine.  I don't know, I just want him here...maybe because of this next story...

My friend "N" had her baby this morning.  If you remember, "N", after immediately coming off of a BFN (big fat negative) on an IUI, found out she was pregnant (randomly with NO fertility help) the same day I found out that my FET was a BFN.  Lily Rebekah was born via c-section this morning at 8:30 EST.  She is 8 lbs & 9 oz and 20 1/2 inches long.  I can't wait to see pictures.  Her mom and dad live up north and we met through all this infertility crap.  :-)  We have already decided that Lily and Dawson are getting married.  Congrats, "N & M" :-)  (I received a picture before I posted this...so here is a picture!!!)



It is cool to see how the concept of Dawson is forming in mine and Matt's minds.  When talking about the baby to anyone...I always say "him" instead of "baby" or "it" or anything.  Matt always refers to him as Dawson.  It was funny, last night, Matt and I went to run an errand and he wanted to stop at Subway and grab a sandwich first (Matt loves Subway).  He asked if I wanted anything but I was not feeling too great from the onion rings I ate from Sonic about four hours earlier.  I said no, and he of course knew why.  He said "Dawson is taking after me on the whole onion thing..."  I can eat onions like an apple, or I could prior to pregnancy.  Matt despises them and you couldn't pay him to eat a sliver of one.  It is just funny...and it will be interesting to see IF Dawson actually likes onions...we already know he LOVES Subway since that is what I crave!
