"But when the nurse called and said it was positive my husband knew what was going on when I started crying into the phone and said, We've been trying for over 4 years! We both shed a few more happy tears and couldn't wait to tell our 11 year old son who has been requesting a baby brother for a long time. The good news, the little brother got so tired of waiting that he says he'll even take a baby sister now!!
The 28-year-old mother to be says, "I was 10 days late with my first child, and still had to be induced, so we are hoping for that to happen again. I don't have any real expectations about delivering on January 1st, it would be sort of neat, but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen." "My brother is an OB in Guam, and if he delivers a January 1 baby, it will be the first in the U.S. We've talked about that, that's how we told the family we were pregnant...by bringing up that discussion."
Jennifer actually wants to try to avoid going to the hospital on New Years. She tells us, "AUGH! Who wants to be in a hospital on December 31 at 11:59 P.M.? Since we weren't trying for a Millennium baby, it has sort of caught us off guard. We were on fertility treatments with Gonal-F (injectable) and didn't think I'd even ovulate this cycle...but that's another story....We would prefer that the baby is born in January, to avoid the Christmas problems with a birthday."
She tells us, "the thought of having the first millennium baby never really occurred to me before and actually frightens me to some extent. In truth, the chances are so slim that I am not really worrying or focusing on it. I just wanted to register for the "big prize" as a token, like buying a lotto ticket."
