Re: PAIF Graduates- New Mommies - February

  • @omarismyhomeboy How scary! I'm so glad June is ok, I hope you are as well! We have a convertible carseat on the passenger side in my Pathfinder. I have to commute with others, so I cannot put him in the middle. I am even more extra cautious when driving now, I wish everyone else were too!

    Me: 40 DH: 38
    TTC since November 2012
    BFP IUI Cycle 2 Dec 2016
    Baby Boy Due Sept 12 2017
    Elias (Eli) born 9/2/17 at 7:07pm weight 8lbs 10oz and 20.5 inches long!!


  • @omarismyhomeboy this is one of my nightmares!! I’m so glad everyone is ok. I have twins so I have no choice but put one on each side and it scares me to death that I’ll get hit from the side with them in the car. 

    TTC for 8 years.
    Started in 2008 with timed intercourse, ovulation testing, no official monitoring.
    OB-GYN recommended Clomid and timed intercourse, attempted for 6 straight months.
    First surgery June 2009 (OB-GYN): diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis and large hydrosalpinx on right tube.
    Second surgery (July 2009, RE performed this): Right tube had to be removed, lots of adhesions removed.
    Attempted "trying on our own" as per RE recommendations, unsuccessful 5-6 months.
    HSG performed December 2009: left tube open.
    February 2010: started Femara and timed intercourse, attempted 6 months, no BFPs.
    Took a break for a while.
    January 2011: started IUI process, ovaries never properly responded to medications, 6 failed attempts, never actually completed an IUI.
    Took 2012-2014 off due to depression and frustration (side note: did complete grad school to become a nurse practitioner- great distraction).
    2015: started seeing RE again, went through tons of testing and HSG, left tube now blocked, only option is IVF.
    September 2015: Started first official IVF cycle, cancelled in October due to large cyst on left ovary.
    October 2015: started on birth control for 2 months.
    December 2015: attempted to start another IVF cycle, cysts on both ovaries on initial ultrasound, left was huge, cancelled to aspirated cyst.
    January 2016: Cyst back, surgery for ex-lap, cyst and adhesions removed.
    March 2016: Attempted second IVF cycle, estrogen way too high, cyst back, cancelled again.
    April 2016: Third attempted IVF cycle, 7 eggs retrieved, 2 mature (but not great) embryos made to fresh transfer, neither implanted.
    May-Sept 2016: Break to regain sanity.
    Sept-Oct 2016: Attempted fourth IVF cycle, very successful, cyst still on left but we ignored. 7 mature "great looking" eggs retrieved, 4 mature embryos made it to day 5 transfer. Transfer aborted due to large amount of endometriosis fluid in uterus.
    FET of 2 embryos completed on 12/12/16.
    12/22/16 1st Beta 179 BFP!!!
    12/24/16 2nd Beta 449!!
    EDD 8/30/17 with two girls!!!!!

    Audrey (4lb 8oz) and Olivia (6lb 6oz) born 8/10/17!!

  • Thanks to all of you! I'm realizing it's a total mixed bag and it's normal to move her to the side seats if its just not doable anymore. Appreciate everyone's concern, thankful that we are totally fine <3

  • @omarismyhomeboy - I'm so happy to hear you guys are all okay. How scary!! Like @persnickity, we have the latch system on both driver/passenger sides but not the middle so she is behind the passenger in both our SUVs.

  • Car seats and cars today, and then the latch system, really keep our babies safer than ever before. Maybe there is a “best” spot in the back seat but I don’t think theres really a bad spot - it’s whatever works best for you to be able to drive safely with your baby!

  • @JWatt5 you're so right. My mom was born in a small town in Scotland in 1957 and she's like "hey, my parents just tossed me in the back seat and went about their day."

  • @omarismyhomeboy when I was growing up you didn’t have to wear a seatbelt, so once I turned 5 it was “optional” and I definitely opted out. We also spent a lot of time at our grandparents house, both were chain smokers, I remember it was always “foggy” in their house. Glad things have changed since then!

  • I honestly don’t remember even being in a booster seat. And barely remember my youngest sister in a car seat. The kids are in seats waaay longer than when I was even little hehe.

  • Just wondering if anyone’s LO had a big change in poop once they transitioned to pooping once a day/once every few days? My DS is 12 weeks and pooping about every other day, but it’s no longer that mustard, seedy poo. Now it’s runny and darker than before. It smells way worse too, but I know that’s normal since it sits in his bowels longer now.

  • @PoeMasque - it’s possible it’s also due to excess saliva. Even if it’s just once a day it tends to be the same colour but some days I’d notice a change like that when he had a particularly “drooly” day.

  • @PoeMasque We noticed that they got a darker mustard color and less seedy looking too. To us, they smell like buttered popcorn. Haha. But definitely a different smell than at first. Once the dirty diapers changed in color/consistency, they also decreased in frequency. She has one a day and if she misses a day, she'll have two the next.
