Sorry it has taken me a bit of a while to post but at last baby boy is here. He is almost 2 weeks old now and came into the world following an attempted induction which resulted in 14 hours on the epidural before being taken down for an emergency c section as he was a bit stuck, being back to back, and the fact that my waters had broken quite a while before.
It’s obviously going to take a bit of a while to recover from the c section but baby boy is perfect and very handsome!
He didn’t really get to grips with breastfeeding so I am pumping and combining that with formula so that he gets enough nourishment.
Even though he came from a sonor egg I can categorically say that I would feel no different towards him if he had my genetics. At the end of the day he is my boy and noone can take that away. In fact the only time I think of the donor egg situation is when friends and family are discussing who he looks like. I have to say that I am not sure when or even if I will tell him as it really shouldn’t and doesn’t make any difference, but obviously there will be repercussions either way so I will need to think about it carefully.
If anyone is hesitating with the idea of using donor eggs I would say that if you really want a child, then just do it, you really won’t regret it and your love for the baby will not change (from my experience anyway).
Obviously it is not all plain sailing and the baby blues have hit – I have been crying for absolutely no reason quite a lot. But hopefully this will go away soon and I really don’t feel sad or upset about anything.
Am starting to go out for walks with junior in the pram and look forward to getting out more as the weather gets better and he gets older
