Re: June IVF

  • @KZ1126 I have my re consult on 11/5. I would love to get pregnant again soon but with the c section I have to wait minimum of 10 months. Plus my res office said I would need to wean and get my period. I’m hoping to start a cycle may 2019 and get pregnant again in June. We will see!  

    @Holls214 my son starts his free trial day of day care tomorrow. Dh will be home in case it doesn’t go well but he needs to start full time monday 9/10 anyway

  • @SP128 almost 32 weeks.... to freak out or not to freak out. I’m getting curious about labor. Will I know when it’s happening? Should I be afraid of the pains? Am I ready to be responsible for two little lives? Whew! The anxiety...

  • @SP128 hope all goes well for you tomorrow. His daycare has been good this week. They have an app where they track everything which is nice so I check it too much. :) 
    @mrsa2017 I had some major anxiety as I got closer but all will be great! It’s definitely a life changer but for the best. When they told me I was getting induced the day I went to the doctor I freaked but calmed down once I saw him and had the epidural haha. 
    TTC 4 years. 7 failed IUI's with either Clomid, Femara and/or Trigger Shots. Started IVF journey in February 2017. Polyps removed in May. 1st IVF Transfer September 26th. BFP. Expected due date 6/14/18. Baby boy born 5/25/18 at 6 lb 9 oz. My bundle of joy. 
  • @mrsa2017 ;  i was induced and had a long annoying wait for 24 hours, then I had a quick labor, got an epi 10 min after the real contractions started, had an hour nap, woke up, did about 5 pushes and had a baby haha! didn't feel a thing. Can't even remember what the major contractions felt like. So while you may not have the same experience, it helps to hear non horror stories too!!! I like to think we did so much work just to have the baby that at SOME point during this whole process we catch a break :)

  • @Holls214 @KZ1126 I think most of this anxiety comes from feeling unprepared. I’m such a planner and feeling unprepared is not something I’m used too. I’ll relax more once I know things are in place. I’m so grateful to make it this far with no complications or having to be on bedrest. DH told me he can’t wait until the boys are here and neither can I.

    Hi ladies sounds like everyone is doing great especially if u ladies r ready for number 2 wow!!! U go girls @SP128 @KZ1126 I do miss being pregnant a Lil BUT my boobs hurt so bad there's no way I'm ready!

    i started this last night at 3am but this lil girl is demanding so I'll try again tonight st 4am  :D

     My LO is not sleeping! This am she first went down at 6:30am I'm so thankful she got a nap in finally as I was falling asleep feeding her.

    This last week has been rough as here I thought I was such a pro fully bf her and at her check up she didn't gain a lot of weight so the dr was very unhappy and made me feel like shit.  So I'm back to pumping bottles and even supplementing with formula again. Her gas is bad but hopefully this time around I'm giving the drops more frequently and she'll feel better!! I explained at 8 weeks I never pump a lot and everyone said don't worry the baby is getting more and now the dr was like no she's getting the same amount I pump s so definitely have the baby blues this week! Trying to ignore them and just get some more food in her...mind u she will eat it all and toss it up right after!  She just turned 3 months and I still feel like I'm feeding a new born. 

    @mrsa2017 3rd tri already how exciting!! I'm so excited with all the hard work everything is moving along as it should for u!  U are already carrying a lot of baby with twins so just try to stay as comfy as u can! And don't stop drinking u need to stay hydrated!! Ur going to have to pee no matter what! I was always so uncomfortable I was like a pancake cooking and constantly had to switch sides every hr so getting up to go to the bathroom just went with trying to get comfortable.

    as for labor ur carrying twins lady so u will have many dr appt keeping a close eye on u trying to keep those boys it for as long as possible! I'm not even getting into my horror story just remember to say yes to the drugs and to make sure u have a full machine before the nurses change shift!! Do u gave ur bag packed! I procrastinated on that but since u gave two I would get that together so u have at least what u want to have.  I don't think u can ever be fully prepared! Just relax and get as much rest as u can! That's the best preparation u need.  Watch a few youve videos for labor if ur nervous! 

    I never did any classes but I will say there was one nurse who mentioned I was breathing wrong after I threw up.  She gave me a few pointers and during the next contraction her tips helped.  That's why I mention watching some videos as that's all u need! 

    Im glad ur missing sex I was so uncomfortable that was the last thing on my
    mind ;) 

    last tip I'm super sensitive and my boobs hurt a lot! LC said to try and toughen up ur nipples now so they won't hurt as much to bf.  I was too late for it to help but maybe it can help for u!!

  • @Holls214 ; I survived.  I sobbed hugging him before I left Friday morning, I sobbed on my commute into work and I sobbed at work.  Day care told me he did amazing.  DH was actually sweet and helped Embaby get me a card.  Tomorrow starts full time.  Ugh ugh ugh

    @mrsa2017 ; Oh lady.  You will be excellent.  It's so normal to be anxious.  I was induced and then had an unplanned c section.  Don't go crazy packing your hospital bag.  I did and didn't use anything.  I had the yoga ball in the car for me to labor on.  Didn't see outside of the car!  Next time, I'm just going to go in with a newborn sized outfit and a 0-3 sized outfit and coconut water ( I threw that down like no one's business last time), a toothbrush, a brush, toothpaste and my own pillow.  I"m going to come home in whatever I wear to the hospital : )

  • @Hopeful_mom You're doing awesome.  Don't let anyone make you feel like shit.  I have always heard that babies get more from breastfeeding then you can from a pump.  Is she still on her growth curve?  All babies gain at their own rates.  All that matter is that she is healthy for her.

  • @SP128 ugh it’s so hard... I’m already dreading tomorrow. Although a little break is nice, I really hate it. Wish I could just work part time. Good luck tomorrow! How sweet of your hubs. I agree about overpacking. Bring a robe, flip flops, toiletries and that was about it that I used. I brought a change of clothes to go home and didn’t wear them either.

  • @Holls214 ; Good call on flip flops.  I brought those and used them and chap stick. I I brought makeup.  Hahahha.  DH had to ask me to brush my teeth and the nurse asked me to shower.  I needed help showering, makeup lol. 

     It's not that I don't want to work, it's just that I don't want to leave him.  It's so incredibly hard and I'm tearing up typing this.

  • @Hopeful_mom @SP128 @Holls214 thank you ladies for the tips and encouragement. I can do this! My drs Appointment is tomorrow so I’ll let you all know how big the boys are. I’m going to watch a few videos as well. How exactly do I toughen up my nipples? Lol.... They probably are tough already since they haven’t been sucked in months hahaha... Why are some drs so harsh? Smt..... A little encouragement goes a long way, keep up the good work hun. Thank God I’m months away from leaving my babies. I plan to drive home every break I can to see them.

  • @SP128 I agree. I actually like working but leaving him is so hard. Wish I could just work part time and keep him with me. I do work from home but it’s too hard to get everything done with him here unfortunately.... hope today goes okay!

  • @Hopeful_mom @Holls214 @SP128 @KZ1126.... guys I think I’m in LABOR! I had hot fluid leaking out of me and I believe these are contractions that started. I am exactly 34 weeks today and it’s my moms birthday as well. I don’t know what will happen but please keep the boys and I in your prayers. 
    I’m actually not freaking out so that is good. Feels like I want to do a number 2 though but I don’t think it’s wise to try and go.
    Here comes another contraction.... I’ll keep you all posted

  • @mrsa2017 oh my goodness- yay! Keep us posted. Thinking about you!! 
    TTC 4 years. 7 failed IUI's with either Clomid, Femara and/or Trigger Shots. Started IVF journey in February 2017. Polyps removed in May. 1st IVF Transfer September 26th. BFP. Expected due date 6/14/18. Baby boy born 5/25/18 at 6 lb 9 oz. My bundle of joy. 
  • They’re here, my little boys are here! They were born on September 25 via C-Section due to one of the boys being transverse.

    Summary: Water broke about 12 pm( wasn’t sure it was my water bag due to thinking it’s too early), called drs office and was told to come in for 2:30 pm. Started having contractions, mildly, after 1 pm (still wasn’t sure I was in labor). Got to the drs office at about 3 pm and found out I was already 4cm dilated. We were sent to the hospital immediately. By the time as I was registered, settled in and checked, I was 6 cm. DH took a flight from home to Florida and got in just as I was being prepped for surgery. They were born one minute apart shortly after 8. 
    They had to have some assistance with breathing so they were rushed off to the NICU. They are currently progressing in there. It breaks my heart leaving them in there but I know it’s for the best. I’m so protective of them that I see myself wanting to slap a nurse if I feel she is being too rough with my children lol.... 
    Mr Canaan weighed 4lbs 4oz at birth and Mr Kenyatta weighed 5lbs 3oz. They have lost some weight as expected so they are both under 4 lbs currently. I have not been able to provide one drop of breast milk yet and I’m trying to be patient. I still pump to stimulate my breast for now. I was told to give it 4/5 days so for right now I’m not trying to beat myself up about it.

    Thank you ladies for your thoughts and prayers. You all have been a pillar of strength throughout this entire journey.

    I hope everyone is doing well.  Can't wait to see pictures!!!  I am so excited for you.  I am so excited for all of us!!

I swear with my LO having her witching hr at 2am I couldn’t imagine having to get up for work!!  She has a diaper rash that is taking longer to go away then I would like.  I’m now using nystatin from the dr so hoping it will clear it up! I actually have some type of bug or I’m just so exhausted that it’s all catching up to me! I’m still eIying for her to grow out of this gas thing I hate it!! She’ll be all smiles and then scream for an hr it’s so awful I hate it!! Who likes seeing any kid cry!!!  
    I feel like crap! Did some house work and I can’t believe the agony my back is in!! Pregnancy seriously took a dump on my body!!! Do u ever feel like ur back to normal?

  • @Hopeful_mom I went back to work on June for 12 days before summer break started. I went back the first week of September. It is no joke the whole working mom thing. Have you tried triple paste for the diaper rash ? 

    I started going ro rhe chiropractor late summer to help with my back. The bending while nursing and picking him up did a number on me. 

    Im pretty much back to normal now. I still have my tummy mummy tummy.

    Motherhood..... Hello ladies @Hopeful_mom @sp128 @kz1126 @holls214... I miss this group and actually being pregnant lol... The twins are now a month old(where is the time going?!)... They spent 11 days in the NICU and then me and DH were in for it. I’m currently writing this with Twin 1 knocked out in my arms. He cries all night for no reason and then they are both knocked out in the day. They take turns crying throughout the night and some nights its both of them.
    Breastfeeding..... I feel like a failure some days but God knows this isnt easy. My milk came in the day after being discharged from the hospital but the most I have ever gotten between both breast was 2 oz. I have tried lactation cookies, fenugreek tea, staying hydrated and still not much flow. The boys have latched twice and once was at a lactation nurse office. I haven’t given up yet but the boys are formula fed.
    Sleep...... I get maybe 2 hours between 12am-8am and about 4 hours throughout the  day. Thank God for my relatives that help out.
    The boys came out of the NICU with thrush so they were given Nystatin as welll for 10 days but that did not clear it up like we’d hope so we got this purple thing that's working like a charm.

    How are your LOs?! Regardless of everything, it’s such joy being these two mama. I’m just watching their little personalities come in. One twin looks like me and the other looks like DH lol. I will post pics tomorrow, I know you all are anxious to see them.

  • Yay!!! @mrsa2017 too excited over here reading as I’m in the same position as u were writing this! I catch up best while feeding and pumping her.  She’s not satisfied though as she hasn’t gotten off my boob all night.  She fed at 6:30a took lik snacks and already wants more at 8am....which means I should probably give her a bottle but she’s already sleeping again.  She has a cold so it has been rough and now I have her cold so we’re a mess over here! I can’t even imagine having two right now....
    cant wait to see them! Sounds like ur exhausted and doing a great job mom!! Glad u have the help and sleep when u can! Honestly my milk never came in as it should BUT it’s still giving her something.  Have u tried power pumping? Pump 15/20 min rest for 10 min and then pump again and repeat? It would take me like an hr but at times it gave me a lil more.  Can u try pumping one boob while baby nurses the other? That could help too.  I know 2oz doesn’t seem like a lot but that’s a full feeding for one right now.  Fed is best as they say!! So glad ur home and doing well we’ve all been on the lookout for u!!!
    @SP128 I totally forgot u went back right at the end.  With both of us sick now I can’t imagine not being with her and glad I don’t.  Glad to hear ur back is back to normal so maybe there is hope BUT I’m also older so maybe not  :s :D 

    anyone dressing up for Halloween?

  • I still can’t believe that any of us are where we’re at after everything we’ve faced to get here. This will be the best Christmas holiday for me by far. 
    They were one month and 1 day when I took them, that was DH Birthday. I love seeing him with them. He’s so overprotective lol. Any new traditions with your LOs this holiday season? 
    @Hopeful_mom @Holls214 @kz1126 @SP128 ;

    It is also time to start planning one year old birthday parties for a few of you as well lol. 
    We plan to christen the boys in January before I head back to work. I haven’t given up bf yet but this is really hard work.... why couldn’t we at least have that part easy?! 

    Sooooooo I was thinking about getting our remaining embryos tested to reveal the genders since DH wants a girl in a few short years. I would love to know for sure that we’re implanting a girl but then another part of me want to just take whatever the Lord wants to bless us with..... Decisions Decisions... Anyone else already planning for number 2?!

  • @mrsa2017 ; We are meeting with the RE on 11/29 to talk about a sibling for Adam!  Just preliminary stuff. I want some info on what he needs my body to do before we can start.  My OB doesn't want me to get pregnant before Adam is 10 months due to the c section.  I know I'll have to wean before the RE will start.  I have mixed feelings about weaning.  

    Breastfeeding is hard, but it is by far so rewarding for me.  Keep at it if you want, it does get easier.  If not, there is nothing wrong with formula.  

    My family didn't really do up Christmas.  I definitely want to start some traditions.  A couple of months ago DH and I discussed it.  He's not big on presents.  I told him I wanted presents under the tree.

  • For some reason I couldn’t find this forum smt. I’m finally able to get on and the day before Christmas, how ironic. These two gives  me a run for my money. I’m still at home, due back to work in the new year but plan to take leave for an extra month just until they are a little older before I fully go back. I WOULD NOT TRADE THIS FOR ANYTHING IN THE WORLD! Bf was a bust and I’m so disappointed that I can’t wait to get pregnant again so I can do all the research and be better prepared for our next baby/babies. I had so many plans for their first Christmas but sadly we didn’t even get to get the tree. I’m still so thankful for my little family this year and that’s all I need.

    I really do miss talking to you ladies. It’s so busy being a SAHM but rewarding. 

    @SP128 you will be leading the pact this time lol. I pray for smooth sailing as you start to gear up for baby #2.

    I wanted to wish each of you ladies a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year as you spend time with your families and your LOs. May next year be even more fulfilling as this year was watching our kiddos grow. I thank God for each of you and do enjoy your holidays.

  • Merry Christmas Mamas!!!

    @Hopeful_mom ;  Bf the whole time!  We only supplemented the first week but my little boobs have sustained him thus far : )  The appointment went well. We took the baby in with us.  So the plan is to start weaning him when he turns one.  The RE said a FET is a lot different than a fresh cycle.  From start to finish is only 17 days.  We have 2 frozen tested little embabies.  If we transfer one, insurance will cover it.  If we transfer two, insurance will not and it will cost $4k. The RE prefers to do one because it is lower risk, but he said the risk of severe premature birth isn't high enough for him to not transfer two.  So maybe @mrsa2017 can help me out here!!  

    You are doing amazing taking care of your littles!!  Everyone no matter what gets all the credit.

    @mrsa2017 ; Having one newborn was nuts, I can't imagine two.  I'm sure the blessings out weight the sleepless nights.  Going back to work is so hard.  I'm glad you get to take another month.  

    @KZ1126 and @Holls214 ; How are you ladies doing?

  • Merry Christmas!! @SP128 @Hopeful_mom   Hope all your peanuts enjoyed the holidays! Ours got totally over loved and too much attention and ended up with a fever keeping her out of school for two days! haha But so much fun. 

    eek, can't believe we're all thinking about the next one! I have an appointment soon, also debating transferring one vs two. Basically every time we tried to get pregnant with medicine, it happened, but only one stuck. So our doctor wants to do one. But I'm also older now, so not sure what we want to do. Twins terrify me but would be nice to get a two for one...  :D :D :D :disappointed:
    @mrsa2017 you will have to let us know how tired you are teehee
