    Questions:
    1) How far along?
    39w+1d

    2) Any appointments this week?
    This Thursday again.

    3) How are you feeling?
    The waiting game is getting to all of us. I know I know... he will be here soon and when he's ready. But it is hard seeing all my pregnancy buddies getting to hold their LOs and us still waiting. I know it seems silly seeing that we just now hit 39 weeks and are a week away from the due date... but it's been the same "any day now" talk with our MW since 36weeks. We were sure labor would come over the weekend. Sigh... not yet.

    The GREAT news is that our surrogate (I hate calling her that because she is our best friend) is finally on maternity leave!!! So that's awesome! She is feeling good. Ready to not be pregnant, but also in a good frame of mind.

    Please let soon come sooner! :)

  • 37+1. Had MFM today for NST, OB tomorrow, MFM Wednesday and c-section scheduled for Thursday! They are watching the babies very close due to the cholestasis.

    Feeling a little better with the medication so I have been less itchy. But everything I eat gives me heartburn since there is no room left. We are looking forward to meeting these babies and I will be happy to not be pregnant anymore.

    QOTW: the babies will likely be listening to whatever DH and I are reading to DD. DD loves Cat in the Hat, Go Dog Go, and Wacky Wednesday right now so there is a good chance one of those.

  • @lawmom747 good luck Thursday I'll be thinking of you! So exciting!!

    Afm: 33w4d. Not getting much sleep. Waking up with hip pain, running to pee and heartburn. I swelled up pretty bad a few days ago. I think I had too much salt that day because it went down and I haven't had issues since. Ob is still saying we will induce a week early. We are going to try to shoot for my grandmas birthday but of course no guarantees. My parents are being weird about it all but its not their choice. Everyone has a freaking opinion. Next appointment is the 23rd.

    Qotw: the giving tree will be the first. It's my favorite book.

  • I am 33 weeks and 5 days today. I had an appointment yesterday and everything is looking good. My next appointment is 7/27, and then we are starting once a week appointments. I am still feeling good. I definitely have a lot more soreness in my hips and back by the end of the day. I also started getting acid reflux more often in the past week. Congrats @Caring Cat he is beautiful! :) QOTW: She will definitely be hearing whatever we are reading my DS. He has a Llama Llama book memorized, so he can "read" it to his baby sister. Also, I will probably read "Guess How Much I Love You?" to her, because it was he first book I read DS.

    Follow up SA numbers are: Count= 4 million, Motility= 40%, Morphology= 1%
    Uro wants us to have another follow up SA 5/9 to see if we see further improvement than we are back to the RE to make a game plan.

    SA 5/9/2014 Count: 12 Million, Motility: 60%, and Morphology 2%. We will be doing iui #1 in late June

    IUI #1 6/28 clomid + ovidrel, post wash count 3 million total sperm= BFN

    IUI # 2 7/21 clomid+ ovidrel. post wash count 900,000 total sperm= BFN
