Hello ladies! Last night I received a call from one if my midwives with the results of my MaterniT21 test and wanted to share the results with you. They wee negative. No increased risk for any trisomies. I am very thankful. And the baby is a girl. My daughter will be ecstatic. My son, not so much. lol!

Omg! How freaking grueling! Apparently it's normal for a grand multip to have an on again- off again labor that lasts several days? Man, I thought the last one would be easy! No such luck. Found out Monday I had a low lying placenta, which caused another freak out.
But in the end I finally had my fifth and final UC baby this morning at 2:05. 41 weeks exactly. No name yet.

Congratulations, Carita! Can't wait to hear the name of your little one. Is it a boy or girl? You give me such hope! Please come on back here when you are up to it and post an update, with maybe some pics?!

Honey, great news on your results!!!

Hi Waturmama! I recall your lovely and encouraging posts from 4 years ago when I first joined this thread. I wondered about you, how are you doing? xo

I am not doing so well with remembering what everyone is up to, with ages and cycles and challenges and good news and all... but I do follow along (although sometimes it's not regularly because for some reason with this new upgrade, it doesn't always notify me when there are new posts) and I'm rooting for everyone on their journey, whatever it may be.

AFM...I just got a positive LH surge today, my 3rd PP cycle, and I'm feeling hopeful that my body is still going strong when it comes to fertility. My hormones are a little wonky, as it is Day 27-- but at least I'm cycling. And last cycle I got my positive LH result on Day 32, so it looks like I'm getting more normal. It will be interesting to see if my luteal cycle is longer this time around, as last time I started my flow on Day 37. I had a pelvic ultrasound last month in which they did an Antral Follicle Count, and I go back to my doctor on September 8th to get the results. I'm scared because I don't know what I will do if it's showing a low count-- or worse, zero follicles. I only wish I could take back a couple of years in which I focused on my education in order to advance my career-- I put off ttc'ing with my current partner, and now although I am so grateful to have my three beautiful children I long for one more. It feels like 4 is my number at which I will feel complete... But is it too late? I hope not.

Congratulations, Rain! I'm sorry you had a tough labor but so happy your baby is here now. It would be great to see a picture when you're feeling up to it. You had a little girl, right? I'm trying to remember.

Congrats on your good news, Honeybun! That must feel like a relief.

Hi Tenzinsmama! I remember you from the old days. Glad to hear your cycle is back. I understand that desire for just one more. I'm trying to step back and move on, but the longing is still there. I also took a few years in my late 30s to focus on my education, so I understand that tinge of regret, too. Sending you good wishes.
