Luv- I really hope I get to have my Mom/son day of school shopping with DS1. I will be so disappointed if I have to bring my mom along! She's one of my favorite people and I'd almost always rather have her with me than not, but this is one exception. I've been looking forward to this for months. :( He has his lunch kit (skip hop owl) and some stainless steel containers for his lunches, and his Klean Kanteen for his water bottle. He has some new clothes, but I'm hoping to pick out a really nice, special outfit for the first day. Kindergarten is full days here, too. They have a gradual start, first a one hour day with a parent along, then a two hour day alone, then a half day, then the first whole day. There are some days in between, too. The one hour day is Sept 5 and the first full day is Sept 12. I think it will be great fun packing his lunches. I'm sure I'll get tired of it, but for now I'm excited. I will miss him like crazy when he goes to school. I think I need the shopping day together to help be accept that he's leaving me!
I am definitely in better spirits. If I find on Monday that my levels are still dropping quickly I will be very encouraged. I sent the midwife an email asking if I need to wait three months to TTC after expectant management of ectopic. I think she will say I don't have to. I think it's similar to after a regular miscarriage, but we'll see. If she tells me what I'm hoping to hear then I'll be VERY encouraged. I'm getting excited to get pregnant again.
We named our precious baby Emmanuella. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions of names, it helped me think through good aspects for a name of this special baby.
