Christmas Eve babies — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Christmas Eve babies

Well, my trio decided that they just could not wait! I started contracting tuesday afternoon and things progressed quickly. Went in for a c-section around 4pm and my babes were delivered shortly after. They were only 27+2, so we have a long road ahead. But for now, they are stable. We have 2 boys and 1 sweet girl!

  • Yay, I'm so happy for you!!! I know you obviously wanted them to stay in longer, and that would have been ideal. But what a wonderful Christmas present! And I'm sure they are in great hands. So glad they are stable and doing well. And congrats on staying team green all that time... You are awesome, mama!

    Me: 42. DH: 46.

    5th Pregnancy: Ectopic, 2 doses of Methotrexate unsuccessful, surgery 4/10/12, right tube removed.

    Tried Letrozole January 2013-July 2013 (including 2 IUIs), all BFN.  After 2 1/2 years of trying for child #2, decided to "give up" after July cycle, based on AMA.
