And Hope Springs Anew
« on: April 21, 2017, 12:05:12 AM »
So one of the biggest fears I have had the past year getting on meds and relearning my marriage was the fear of somehow passing on the virus to my spouse once we started being active again.

Well after a broken condom I haven't passed on the HIV (nor does my DR think I would anyway since I am nearly 10 months UD) but I am going to be a dad again. When I told my Doc at my last appointment (we had just found out) she was excited for us and quite happy - assured me that I didn't need to worry about anything and it fell at a good point too since my wife's 6 month test was due (again negative - she will move to once a year next year.)

So yeah, still trying to wrap the mind around it - this will be our third, kind of hoping for a boy this time but if I end up with 3 girls so be it - cause this is it regardless. So thankful to live in a day where this is possible.

Hope - Its a sign of Hope.

Thank you all and Wade - my wife's family is known to have twins (her dad is one) so the possibility is there. Would be a lot all at one time though lol.

Tony, Rene is the middle name we have picked out for a Girl - long before this ever came up so we shall see.
