I get more nervous everyday thinking that in 8 short weeks, or less, my wife and I will get to meet our new baby boys. I think the most nerve racking thing for me is the cost of formula and diapers. I've had alot of people tell me to not even try to pay attention to the cost of those things. They to...

My wife has gained 24lbs so far and she's just over 30 weeks. She doesn't look pregnant at all beside her belly.....lol. The rest of her body looks like it did before she was pregnant. She's on bedrest now though so I'm sure she'll gain some more weight from not burning the same amount of calories a...

No, she's not on bedrest yet as the doctors don't seem that concerned about the whole issue. I'm scared to death of the NICU, but I know there is a fairly decent chance that they will end up there. She's worked from home everyday since Tuesday and has been doing nothing, but drinking water and layin...

My wife went into pre-term labor on Tuesday............

Hey everyone, Well my wife started having some pre-term contractions on Tuesday and needless to say it was a crazy day. Her contractions were fairly strong and 2 to 3 minutes apart and she was dilated to 1, but they said you can be there for months and it's no big deal. Thankfully they got the contr...

According to that article it should be gone in three weeks so here's hoping that it is. We go back in two weeks for another ultrasound and then a...

Just got back from the anatomy scan..............

Hey everyone, Thought I would post a quick update so everyone would know how our situation was going. My wife is 21 1/2 weeks now so we went in for the anatomy scan today. Everything looked good, but they found a small small cyst, less than 1/3 of a millimeter, in the left side of Zachary's brain. T...

Hi Annie and Bigrediowan Thanks for your kind words and support. I am afraid I had further sad news today. I did my third beta and the results have reduced to 126 which is a clear sign of 'miscarriage'. The clinic have told me to wait for a miscarriage. I am devastated. To be so close and then real...

Katina, First off let me say I'm sorry for what you've had to go through thus far and I wish everyone could understand what a difficult process this really is! My wife and I went through what you're going through now in September of 2008. Her first number was very low and then her second doubled, bu...

Wait until I tell my wife you said that, she'll laugh her butt off in agreement. :D Jackson is a good name Annie and good luck finding a girl name. We would've been able to pick out girl names easier than boys names.
