**Mrs. McIrish** — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

**Mrs. McIrish**

I've been stalking you like crazy (I'm sure I'm not the only one), and just wanted to share how happy and excited I am to see you finally getting your well-deserved happy ending this week.  It's so amazing to see you carry your little girls for so long, and you've been a champ the whole way through!  

As a previously induced mom, allow me to humbly (but strongly) recommend asking for an epidural as early as possible after being induced, as I can tell you that Pitocin-induced contractions are ridiculously painful.  I was induced at 39w4d about 8 hours after my water broke and I failed to dilate beyond a fingertip. By the time I reached 2cm, I was cursing through every contraction, begging for drugs.  By comparison, when I started going into labor with my second at 38w (I had a RCS that turned into an ECS), I was blissfully unaware that I was at 4-5 cm when I went in for my weekly checkup.  When the doctor went in to get my little one, he said he was shocked I couldn't feel the contractions because based on how my uterus looked, I'd been contracting like crazy!  I just wanted to share that, because I feel like you've been through so much to get here, and I'd hate to see you suffer more unnecessarily.  

But the main reason for my post is just to congratulate you yet again and wish you the best as your journey to meeting your lucky clovers comes to a close and a new and exciting chapter in your lives begins.  Wishing nothing but the best for you, YH, and your girls, and again, so happy for you!

     being still pregnant with twins at 38wks +, lol).

     I'm guessing these babies won't be born until Friday.... They are very comfortable and will have to be forcibly evicted!!!


    That's the craziest part of all.  I totally expected them to keep the drama coming by showing up early, and here you are, going longer with twins than I did with my son!  I know you're ready to be done, but I'm kind of curious how long they'd stay in their comfy womb, given the opportunity.

    Very exciting!  Good luck!!!

    The PgAL board does "labor buddies," meaning that people buddy up and share cell numbers or similar so they can text their labor buddy, who then posts updates to the board, when they go into labor. I think it's a cool idea. :)
