Good luck to your BIL and SIL!!!

Perdita - Here are some more vibes for your bil & sil. : : I wish them all the best.

Sarah - Where are you? (not so patiently tapping my fingers)
post #284 of 449
Thanks for the vibes... keep 'em coming. 7 eggs fertilized of 9 retrieved. She is disappointed in the numbers but I've tried to reassure her that that's a great haul (only once did I get over 3 fertilize!). So they're set for a Day 5 transfer - oh I hope it works out for them.

JM - I'm uncomfortable and baby is in weird positions. One baby, at 26 weeks. I cannot IMAGINE how you are remaining so calm about this all.

More : : and for Perdita's SIL. Crummy as the whole situation is, it's cool that she has you for some very knowledgable support ( I think back to my first - clueless - IVF cycle).

Re: abeecharmer, I know!! So not patiently waiting for an update....Sarah posted on her blog yesterday, but it's password protected (yes, I'm stalking her, she knows). And something had to happen by Thursday. Here's hoping it all went wonderfully for the whole beecharmer family!!!

Okay, is anyone else checking back here twice a day to see if abeecharmer has posted? Or is that just me?

Hope all is well for everyone, I'm just looking forward to my mw appointment on Tuesday.

hi ladies! you are all so sweet to be thinking of us! we just got home from the hospital yesterday afternoon. emeline patience was born thursday, november 5 at 1:47 pm. she weighed a whopping 8 lbs 10 oz and measured 21 3/4 inches.

i ended up having a c-section due to her size and her continued refusal to move on down the birth canal. im doing okay with the recovery and, after an extra day in the hospital to work with the lacation specialist, breastfeeding is going well.

we are totally exhausted and totally in love with this sweet baby girl.

hope you are all doing well! thanks again for all of the sweet wishes sent our way

~ sarah

Wahooo abeecharmer!!! Thanks for giving us the update, sounds like you have been through a bit. Soooo glad to hear that breastfeeding is going well, please get more support asap if it seems at all like you need it (dd and I had a very hard time with bf'ing and I was stupidly stubborn about asking for help). Oh, sooo pleased. Many congratulations to you and your dp.

Hey poet, is that a 12 week ticker I see????? Small and non-jinxing congratulations.

Congratulations Sarah and welcome Emeline!

Thanks again for the vibes for my SIL. She had her transfer on Sunday - 2 above average blasts (almost morula stage at day 3!!!) and 4 more blasts got frozen. I'm a little jealous actually - that's far better than any of our cycles!

Why Yes, in fact, it is! I feel more confident as the days go by and I'm not wishing them away so much. I feel that my body knew exactly what to do once it got pregnant and I'm really proud of it. I have another appt. with the m/w on Fri. but feeling kinda mellow for now. Every day, I just feel so incredibly lucky.

Perdita, That's a great result! I am wishing them many many sticky bfp vibes.

Julia's Mom, I was wondering if you can distinguish the movement of both babies. How does it feel different on the inside from a single pregnancy besides the obvious, lol?

How is everyone else?

Congrats, Sarah!
Congrats, poetgirl!
We have thrush here -- dd's mouth is quite white.
post #300 of 449
Jen - So sorry to hear about the thrush. I hope it gets better really soon.

Poet - Yeah for feeling so relaxed. That is awesome! It's amazing how fast it's going now. Are you starting to show?

Sometimes it's easy to distinguish the two, sometimes not. It depends on their position. I must say that I'm not in favor of the two butts and two heads. Someone always seems to be pushing out which is rather uncomfy. YOu'll find out soon enough. I will say that I don't know if I'd guess twins from the movement alone, but combined with my rather large girth, I might.

I'd appreciate some prayers. My never ending cold turned into a sinus infection and now an ear infection. I'm hoping the meds kick in soon so I can feel back to (pregnant) normal before the babes come.
