Oh, poor Juliasmom!! Love and coming your way, I hope those meds work a miracle asap. I think being sick when you're pregnant is so freaking unfair. I have invested in a Neti pot, gross but effective and so far the germs haven't been winning with me.

Feel better, Julia'sMom! I had a sinus infection early in pregnancy. I tried to fight it off myself but it got to a point where my head hurt so much I didn't want to get out of bed. So then I went to the doctor and got antibiotics.

Apparently sinus issues are common during pregnancy.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. Long story short, went back to primary care dr, he referred me to specialist. Saw specialist 2 hours later, it's a moderately severe infection. New antibiotics and some good pain killers (midwife agreed to let me take the tylenol codeine for a few days since I wasn't sleeping or eating well due to pain). Dr says I should feel significantly better by Sunday. Good news, none of the pregnancy symptoms are really that bothersome right now.

Now, babies must stay in and contractions must cease. : I have way too much left to do to have them now. (as though they care).

Well, it's Sunday. I sure hope you're feeling better and NOT having contractions. Stay put babies!!

My contractions have stopped, thankfully, unless I do a lot of bending (no loading the dishwasher for me!). DD is really sick AGAIN, hope I don't catch it.

Well, I'm still here and the babies are still in. I must be feeling better because I've resumed complaining about carrying around all this baby weight. Follow-up appointment today and hopefully I'll regain all my hearing soon. Contractions aren't really increasing in frequency, just in strength. They're painful enough to wake me up, but when I wait after being woken, another one doesn't come for an hour or so. :

CRM - I hope your DD feels better really soon, and you don't catch it. Are you having a hospital birth? I just found out that the hospital changed it's visitor policy to only allow visitors over the age of 18. It breaks my heart to not see DD the whole time I'm there. : It's just more incentive to get my vbac and get out of there so we can be together as a family.

JM - glad to hear you're doing somewhat better. I'm sorry about the hospital regulations... Here's hoping for VBAC...

So ladies my SIL (the one going through IVF) - she had her transfer last Sunday (8th). Her DH is pushing her to test tomorrow morning. Too soon, no? I'm trying to convince her to hold off because it's so early...

Perdita - Did she have a 3-day or 5-day transfer? I think my beta was 10 days after a 4-day transfer. However, I'm always on the no POAS train with ivf. How are you feeling? It's hard to believe how fast it's going, you're past halfway point. Did you decide to keep the gender a surprise? I wish I had the patience for that.

Nummies - How are you holding up? Hopefully all is well.

CRM - Any update on your dd? I hope you were able to avoid the illness.

AFM, baby girl is in position! : : Over the last two weeks she went from breech to head down. Of course baby boy went from head down to transverse :. However, since he's baby b, that doesn't affect my provider allowing a vbac. I told the midwife to not schedule any more u/s, since I want my chart to read head down when I show up at the hospital. My lovely (not) belly is measuring about 44 weeks now. No wonder it feels so heavy and awkward. Dh left early this morning, so I had to go to work without socks. Thank goodness I can still fanangle on pants by myself. Only one more week of work! I am so ready as I don't think I"ll even be able to drive after that. Carseats are installed and checked. The last few things we have to do are prep the cloth diapers, purchase more disposables for the beginning and pack the hospital bag.

CRM, Are you guys all doing okay? So sorry to hear DD was/is sick again.

Perdita, I had to poas at about 11 dpo, but that's me. It's a very tough call.
I wish them well though! I would love to hear good news from you.

J's Mom, Brilliant news mama! Way to go, Little One! Goodness, measuring 44 wks. Get thee to a couch in pjs with some bon bons! Soon! Happy end of work!

Oh, and I happened to see that Bellybean had her baby on 11/1.

I really hope the gals on the IVF thread have some success soon. There have been some really hard and disappointing cycles on there, I think only 1 bfp on there since mine in Aug. Oh, it breaks my heart. I so want to bring them all here.

Doing ok, Julia's mom, thanks for asking! Glad that baby girl turned for you! I am getting so excited for you!

Actually, I am doing a lot better than I expected to feel at this stage. Yeah, it is kinda hard to move around, but overall I feel great! The boys are doing well. Both over 4lbs (estimated by u/s) and are both head down. I am measuring 41 weeks now. Just wanting to keep them in there for AT LEAST 4-5 more weeks and then I am good!

Mandy, It's great to hear from you and get an update!

You women carrying twins, you are so amazing!

I just have a quick to get off my chest. I'm sure you all understand. So we are starting to tell people and I am consequently getting the "See? I told you it would happen! Of course it was going to happen. You didn't think so, but IIIIIII knew..."

This gets under my skin! I never knew, not even when we got a bfp and neither did anyone else. I'm just saying some version of, "Well, all I can say is that this really is a miracle and we are so lucky."

Did this bug any of you? What did you say?

I agree - here I am at 28 weeks and feeling uncomfortable - I think I'd be unbearable to be around if I had twins....

Poet - if someone said that to me, I think my answer would have an expletive in it. How nice that THEY knew....

MIL asked tonight on the phone if we were planning on having "another" after this one. She was asking DH, who looked pained. Another swallowed expletive - um... not only am I almost 38, but, well, I'm done with IVF and pregnancy at this point!

SIL hasn't reported in, but she was going on a 2-day trip as of yesterday morning ... hoping she's doing ok. Crossing my fingers for her... it was a Day 3 transfer even though she had a good number of embryos, so I guess she might have seen something... 99% of me wants this for her, and 1% is a bit worried because BIL is the prodigal son, and if they get pregnant, we can kiss any attention to our family goodbye.. then again we've had 4 good years...

She's pregnant! Beta was 230!

And when they called to tell her that they did an audit of the genetic testing that she and BIL went through, and they found an uncommon Cystic Fibrosis mutation from his blood sample -they missed it the first time. So now she's having to be re-tested too.

This is interesting because the condition both BIL and DH have is Congenital Bilateral Absence of Vas Deferens (CBAVD). It's very often linked to CF, but neither DH nor BIL, until now, tested positive for any of the CF mutations. This could be the explanation why they both have it. I doubt DH will get tested at this point - I think that boat has sailed for us, but it would be nice to have an explanation. Looks like we'll have to have discussions with our kids in the future about the possibility they have this gene - and it does mean that there's a possibility any sons may have the same issue. NOT something to tell a teenage boy "hey, you can't get a girl pregnant without medical intervention!!" I think!

Perdita - Yeah for your SIL and BIL! : I hope you are able to share in the joy of pregnancy together.

Poet - I never got the remark you mentioned. It was probably because we rarely admitted to anyone that we wanted another child or were trying. It was just something we weren't comfortable with sharing. However, if someone had said that to me, an expletive would have been the response, at least in my head.

CRM - I hope you're feeling well. Check in when you get a chance.

Bellybean - Congrats on your birth! : :

Hello ladies!!! I feel like it has been forever since my ds was born and I have been meaning to get back here and check in to see how everyone is doing. It's funny how eventhough I am not pg anymore, I still feel a connection to everyone here. All is well here. DS is a great baby....very calm and not a screamer. I think someone knew I needed calm in my life after all the craziness. Especially since life is going to get even more crazy in January when I start my internship and have to put DS in daycare Ahh well...such is life. Anyway, I hope everyone continues to do well and Poet......I have to say that to those people who "knew" it would happen. My response would be "gee...is there anything else you would like to tell me about my future while we are at it?" Geez

JM - you've got those babies almost to term!! That's so awesome! I know you must be incredibly uncomfortable right now - but wow! That's so great! Are you planning for spontaneous labour, or will you be induced at a certain point? (or is there a c-section booked? I can't remember!)

Oooo, how crummy! I am going to not think about that until it gets closer, I plan to have dd there for labour if it's a reasonable time of day. Here's hoping for your VBAC, for one more reason!

That would sooooooo bug me!! I feel bad sometimes for how dodgy we are (like someone asked me if I'd be having my tubes tied after this baby and I said it'd be dh's problem - of course he has severe MFI , so our contraception is kind of up to him). But dumb comments like that are why I am not honest, I don't want to hear it and this way when people say the wrong thing, I know they really don't know better. Why are people so nosey and in your business? Grr. You are kind to be not rude when you get that comment, not sure I'd be able to poker face it.

Yes, we are all well at the moment. It seems like there are so many bugs going around that she or my dh get something every couple of weeks. So far so good for me (yay Neti pot!!). Thanks for caring guys!

Oh Juliasmom, I cannot imagine how uncomfortable you must be (is that like saying "you're going to feel some pressure"? ie. massively annoying understatement?). I am so so happy for you that you are this close to term. Even though you have to go get checked every week. Take good care of yourself.

I had my u/s on Wed, and found out that they don't tell sex unless you are after 20 weeks ( I was 19 weeks, 2 days). Baby looks healthy, but wouldn't move around so she could do all the spine measurements, so I have to go back in a couple of weeks. Now that I've decided I want to know the sex this time, I really want to know. NOW!!! And man, I am really big already. It is freaking me out to know how much longer I have and how much bigger I'll get.

to all, hope everyone is doing great.

Gumby - Those pictures made me cry :

I am so happy for all the new mama's on this thread. It's a beautiful thing, especially after all that we've been thru to get here.

Perdita - I will go into spontaneous labor. The ob will let me go until 42 weeks, which I really don't think I"ll make. Even if a c-section is then required due to babies position, at least they chose the birthdate.

CRM - Sorry you have to wait for the gender. Is that so they can be more sure? I know I got a preliminary guess at 16 weeks that was confirmed at 20 weeks. I hope you're just popping out now and the baby gives you a little break so you don't get too big.

All of you ladies are so sweet to be so supportive. I'm actually feeling better now that I have for the last 3-4 weeks. I think it's because I'm at term and more at peace with the idea that I only have to hang on for up to 3 more weeks. OF course, then I think about labor and that kinda freaks me out. Besides, I'll admit the attention I get now whenever I go anywhere is a big ego boost. They're still shocked each Sunday when I make it to yet another service. I haven't done belly shots, but I"ll try to get one before I deliver, just to memoralize the shape of my body, and to remind me to never let it get this way again.

Just some advice to all you ladies, build up your immune system as much as you can. I rarely ever get sick, yet have caught every cold, infection, etc. that I've been around for the last month. My system is just shot and I'm so thankful to be done with work and am hoping the extra rest will help me get over it all before birth.

Gumby- He is adorable!!! So sweet. Thanks for sharing with us!

CRM- That stinks that they wouldn't tell you the gender! What is 5 days gonna do?? Weird.

Juliasmom- Yay for 37 weeks!!

AFM- I am 34 weeks tomorrow. Still doing well. Although now I have the cold from hell, so I am feeling really crummy.

Hope you all are well!

You are doing awesome as well!! Take real good care of yourself and keep on top of that cold. The first cold from hell I got led to the ear infection from hell. I now see more benefits to have a spring/summer baby.

First I want to thank all of you who affirmed that I was not off my rocker to be totally irked by the "I KNEW it would happen" comments. If I get them again, I'll be a little franker.

Gumby, What a love.

Perdita, It's SO awesome about you BIL/SIL! I love hearing about ART successes. All the best to them~

J's Mom and Mandy, First off, you are both amazing. Twins and working through the last frontier. Sorry you've both been sick. Hoping for a healing and recvoery respite before those babies come!

CRM, That 5 day thing seems a bit literal. I mean surely they could take a peek and make a guess.

AFM, I'm great but so so dry. I keep drinking and am getting a good amount of fluid, but my nose and throat are parched dry. I'm going to pick up a humidifier and see if that helps. When DH takes a shower I hang out in the bathroom. I think our house is just too dry for some reason. Anyhow I keep reading about excess salivation and runny noses and I'm confused about this symptom. Anyone?

All of you ladies are so sweet to be so supportive. I'm actually feeling better now that I have for the last 3-4 weeks. I think it's because I'm at term and more at peace with the idea that I only have to hang on for up to 3 more weeks. OF course, then I think about labor and that kinda freaks me out. Besides, I'll admit the attention I get now whenever I go anywhere is a big ego boost. They're still shocked each Sunday when I make it to yet another service. I haven't done belly shots, but I"ll try to get one before I deliver, just to memoralize the shape of my body, and to remind me to never let it get this way again.
No, they have a policy of not telling until 20 weeks to prevent people from terminating "wrong" sex pregnancies!! That issue is specific to some cultures in my city, and I don't belong to any of those cultures, but they have to make the rule solid for everyone or they would be discriminating. I told her this was a $25,000 baby and I don't give a damn, I'd just like to know, but she wouldn't tell (the tech obviously knew). Had I known, I would have booked it for a few days later, but I have to go back in a couple of weeks anyways, so they'll darn well tell me then.

I am so excited for you making it this far!!! And even contemplating going to 42 weeks, wow! Do take some photos, the babies will love to look at them some day. I've been starting to wonder if there'll just be a break in your posts and we won't even know you're in labour. When it starts, can you take a minute to let us know?

I know, I really tried to convince the tech to bend the rules, but.... no. I hope you feel better soon!!!!

Poet, would a Neti pot help? Or that saline nasal spray? I have been drinking lots and am always thirsty as well, it's annoying because I am soooooo bored of going to the bathroom every 5 minutes!

Peace and love to all and keep those cutie baby pics coming!!!!! Congrats again Gumby!!
