~*~The BSL Graduate/Stalking Thread - NEW YEAR 2011 EDITION~*~

post #1 of 126
Thread Starter 
Welcome to the NEW YEAR 2011 EDITION Thread Mamas!!
Looking forward to adding some of our BSLs to the list over here,
we need some new babies!

This is a spinoff of the Bitter Sushi Ladies Thread over on the TTC board. Some of us have very happily made it to the "other side" and we want to be able to keep track of each other.

Our fellow BSL's that are still on their TTC journey like to check up on us from time to time too - which we really appreciate - since they continue to be in the midst of a sometimes brutal and just "NOT FAIR" TTC journey...

And we're off and running in the new year. Now we just need some of those BSL's on the other side to get preggo and get their butts over here! Sending them lots of praying.gif and goodvibes.gif!!! Jessica, how are you feeling??

post #3 of 126

Hello! Thanks Nanette for the new thread!!! 

 

I'm feeling good, getting anxious really to have this little one. Pregnancy is a part of the whole deal but I've really just wanted a little one for years now! So the fact that I'm SOOO close is like ahh! I'm ready, there are still things to do and stuff to keep me busy but it's really hard at this stage to not spend every second of every day wishing for labor. There are a couple of fun things on the agenda for next week so if I make it there I'll have a couple of nice nights out!

post #4 of 126

Nanette - Thanks for the lovely thread, I think I'll go ahead and join you all here!

 

Jessica - Excited for your upcoming birth!

 

So, may I join? 

 

I was over on the BSL thread for about 10 months or so...not the longest person there by a long shot, I know!  We went through 2 IUIs and then got pregnant on our first IVF...we've also been through a sperm scare (first RE said IVF was our only chance since DH had 0% morphology.  Got a second opinion and morphology was normal.  Went with that 2nd RE for treatment!) and through a miscarriage scare (right before Christmas they saw an empty sac at 6w4d and told me we had a 90% chance of miscarriage.  Lo-and-behold, 6 days later there was a healthy bean!).  Anyway, I hope all this is enough to put us in the "smooth sailing" category for the rest of this precious pregnancy. 

 

Since everyone is sharing their baby pics...here are mine!  :)  1st is at 3 days old,  2nd is from this week, at 11 weeks.

Awww!!! I was wondering when you would be joining us! WELCOME!!! One of the things I love about IVF is that we get a picture of our beans at 3,4,5 days old- It's just sooo amazing! Congrats again Maurine!! I'm going to add you to the list, let me know if there's anything in particular you want on there aside from what I have now :) H&H 9 months, and I'll be stalking you and Tear in the August DDC!

Good for keepin' busy! It seems like most of us get right up to (and over) that 40 week mark!! Here's hoping for a very safe (and fast) labor for you mama!

YAY!! Welcome Maurine! I try to keep up with the BSL thread and wow what a roller coster you've had so far. I do hope the rest of the journey is uncomplicated and way less scary! The 3 day picture is very cool. 

 

Here's a belly shot from 4 days ago, this is at about 38 weeks, not the best pic ever lol but you get the idea!

Nanette: thanks for the new thread!

 

Maurine: welcome!  I truly hope that the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly.  I can relate to how you are feeling.  I laugh at my username now that my girls are here... it just felt I was so long in the TTC phase and now that there are here I seem to have forgotten most of that time... or maybe I'm just sleep deprived :)

 

Jessica: you look great!  Labor will come before you know it so try to enjoy the last little while... you're almost there!

post #8 of 126
Hey, you guys. I'm sorry I've been so absent. I haven't been in a really post-y place. We found out Monday that we lost our Baby B. Our Baby A looked wonderfully, beautifully healthy, and we're focusing on that. It's been a tough week though, processing the sad part, and sending positive thoughts to my belly that Baby A continues to do wonderfully. Thanks for sending your love and support! Your pictures are so adorable: keep sharing!!! blowkiss.gif

Tear I'm so sorry for your Baby B! I am sure Baby A will continue to do marvelously.

Jessica you look great! I was very anxious starting at like 37 weeks and every day told DH... "some people go into labor now... Why not me" so good job keeping busy!

I haven't dug up our old thread to catch up but hope everyone else is doing great!

I was going to put a pic on here but don't have a URL for one so if you want to see our sweet Emery (who is 5 months already! And 18 lbs!) you can check our website colorwithwords.com if I can figure out a URL from the site I'll come back to share pictures of our chunky monkey.

Oh Tear, I'm so so sorry mama. I was stalking you yesterday and saw that you changed your siggy, and I've been thinking about you and sending you all kinds of positive thoughts and prayers. There's just no words. I'm happy to hear that Baby A is doing so well though. I know he or she will grow big, strong and healthy! Hang in there love!hug2.gif

Thanks, hon! We had another u/s this morning, and our baby looked beautiful and strong and bouncy. Hubby and I both practically gulped down air in relief when we saw our little beautiful baby jumping up and down in there. I've been feeling more nauseous again, too, which is reassuring.

Colorbywords, I can't wait to see your pics! love.gif

Oh Maurine I love the pics. I just came over to stalk you and see how you are doing. Hope it is smooth sailing now!

Tear, hope you are doing OK too. I imagine it has been a tough few weeks hug.gif

Hey Ladies...

Just popping in quick (since I'm supposed to be working) to say Hi and Thanks, Nanette for starting the new thread!

Maurine - So glad you came over here so we can follow your pgcy! Adorable little bean picture by the way. My baby DS's "bean" picture from 9 weeks is still on our fridge (and on my cell phone). I look at the one on the fridge almost every day and think how amazing it is - especially since I often have my little munchkin in arms!

Jessica - How are you doing?

Tear - I am so happy to hear that you had another u/s today and saw the baby-bean healthy and bouncy and GOOD! Will you continue to have weekly ultrasounds? I hope so... at least until you can feel that little baby movin' and groovin'!

Not much is new here. Caleb has started to "cry" for me when he can see me and I'm not holding him, mostly when he's tired or hungry. Very cute (for now) and makes Mommy feel soo very, very loved!

He likes so few solids, but what he does like... he has expensive taste. His favorites so far are avocado and mango! No mashed banana for him!

Hope all is well with everyone!

 

post #14 of 126

Mmmm....I myself could use some avacado and mango...  :)

post #15 of 126

Yay! It's good to hear from everyone! Lots of hugs your way Tear, I'm glad to hear about your little one bouncing around!! 

 

Just a quick AFM 

Nothing going yet, just a ton of BH's which are fun and all but it's making me really anxious for the real deal. The people who we're going to need to call first thing to come and take care of my DS are calling us daily now asking if there are any "signs". LOL My MIL who is going to be coming to help take care of DS while I'm in labor/in the hospital actually FB'd, texted, then called and left a voice mail for my DH all in the span of about 2 minutes ... to see if it was ok if she ran to the store. Dear god, it could be another 2 weeks of this!

ROTFLMAO.gif ME TOO!!! upsidedown.gif

Lis, we go in again in two weeks for another u/s. Two weeks is a long time compared, but I feel much better about it after yesterday's experience. How fun that you can look at DS's u/s pic on the fridge! We're hoping to be able to put together a baby album for our little one starting at 4 days past retrieval. Keep growing, little marvel!!!

rcr, Hi girl! wave.gif How are you doing?

jessica, your post made me laugh picturing all the people dancing around you in anticipation, though I know it's probably not funny IRL. I can't imagine how on-the-edge-of-your-seat you must feel. Thinking of you!

No, it is actually pretty funny! The anticipation is about to drive me crazy though. Pregnancy even if it goes fast is a long time. The first half I spent worrying and wondering if we'd really have a baby and the second half I spent waiting for this little guy! There were no long classes this time, no going out for prenatal yoga, no little bitty tiny things to collect (we kept everything from DS) so I've spent a lot of time ready and waiting! Not that I'm complaining, there's just a whole lot less fanfare this time around. :) 

The edge of the seat feeling is very similar to the end of a tww (which all of you ladies are very family with) or to those first few weeks when your not sure if you got a sticky one, or a million other wait-for-your-fate-to-be-decided moments. There is always an end to it though, nobody has been pregnant forever! That's my mantra lol

A TWW where everyone and their second cousin and their second cousin's neighbor knows about it.  And is super excited.  love.giforngbiggrin.gif  I AM SO EXCITED to be on the other side of that for Tear!!!  I plan to make myself very annoying...

post #19 of 126

Hi Ladies!  It's been forever, I've been caught up in the holidays and trying to get stuff done before the baby gets here (20 more days!) and then I get slammed with a nasty stomach virus.  Evil.

 

Congrats Tear and Maurine!  So excited to see you both over here! 

 

Jessica, hang in there!  I do know about the fanfare and lack there of.  No one has shown ANY interest in this pregnancy at all, my inlaws live next door and I think have asked how I was once a few months ago.  I'm not even sure they know my due date.... ugh.  I'm trying to make myself useful these last months cleaning closets and getting rid of some clothes, washing newborn clothes, bought a few small things for the new baby (sheets, lamp, rug).  After 2 boys, some of the things we do have are kind of worn.

 

Also, Jessica your belly photo is adorable! 

 

Oh and for the record, I have officially stopped wearing socks.  Yup, January in Massachusetts.  No socks, can't do it.  I just bought a pair of sherpa lined clip on mules to wear for the next few weeks.  I took my 4 year old to school wearing them and he said to me "mommy how come you have your slippers on?"   Because I'm too big to bend over, honey....

 

post #20 of 126
Tear Hi to you too. Glad baby A is bouncing around. I am fine. Actually, I am feeling really optimistic about IVF. A little overwhelmed by the process and the prospect of giving myself huge shots of progesterone in the ass for ten weeks if we are successful, but ya know, I am sure I will get through it. I took by shot class last week and was scared off by the size of that needle. The little tummy shot needles didn't look too scary, but the hsg and progesterone shots... wow.

finnegan -Hi there. wow, you are big now? I guess you would be. Seems like yesterday you just got you bfp though. Pregnancy goes by fast when you are not the one who is huge and uncomfortable.
