Well ladies, here I go again. Here is a posting I made on the infertility site. Feeling a little blue as my own eggs seem to be dwindling and poor in quality: "Hello everyone.

Eggs over 40

Hello everyone. I've migrated from the parents board back to fertility board. I am happy to say I am the mother of 2 twin boys using donor eggs. We had to resort to donor eggs because my first daughter died from a maternally inherited genetic disorder that we learned about after her passing. We are ...

btw, anyone losing their hair like nobody's business? Mine doesn't seem to stop shedding. I swear I feel like I have about 1/2 the hair I did previously. Feel like I have a receding hair-line :shock: :cry: I remember losing hair with my DD, but thought it was due in large part to the stress of losin...

Cocoa: I'm here! Life i so hectic these days. I just happened to check in as I sit here pumping before rushing off to work. I'm down to 1 pump a day now -- almost done weaning. YEAH! Not much spare time at all. My husband has an exam every FN Monday and usually a paper or two due. Translation: I hav...

I haven't been on the board in so long as I have been taking care of newborn twins. My boys came 2 years after experiencing the loss of my daughter (she died at 13 weeks of life due to a very rare genetic disorder). I remember the utter devastation and pain all too vividly and my heart goes out to t...

Not knowing the back story re: your daughter, my instincts are that you shouldn't be overly concerned at this age. My twin boys are now 5 months and I would say they just started grabbing things a couple of weeks ago (if that). One of my boys still has wobbly head too and while he can hold it up for...

Sorry I haven't posted. Read the posts and am happy to hear everyone is doing well. I started back to work 3 weeks ago and it has been so overwhelmingly exhausting. I feel like I'm racing around all the time, with hardly any time to just sit, relax and breathe. As soon as I get home from work (still...

Just curious: How much are all of your babies weighing these days? We just went to the pediatrician and our boys are now just a little over 10 lbs at 14 wks (they have grown so much already -- hard to believe). WC: I didn't realize you can't fly alone with 2 babies. Is this all airlines? How long do...

About pre-pregnancy weight -- DAMN you women are doing well. 4 lbs, 7-8 lbs? I feel WAY behind!!!! I have about 10-11 lbs to go and I am just starting to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes at 13 wks post pregnancy. Not everything fits and I definitely have some tummy bulge. I haven't really worked ou...

Hi everyone! I know it has been FOREVER since I've posted. These last 13 weeks have been incredibly rough -- as I'm sure you all know. My boys are growing like weeds. They are still on a strict 3 hour schedule though so my sleep time is minimal (on occasion, they might go 4 hrs after the midnight fe...

Thanks to all of you for your advice and words of support. Kristi: I can't tell you how impressed I am that you were able to BF both at the same time and keep one on the boob while you supplemented one with formula and burped him'/her on your knee at the same time. I'm not very skilled at holding th...

HELP! Exhausted with Twins

I'm new to Parents after Treatment and desperately need some advice. I gave birth to boy/boy twins 3 weeks ago. I have a night nurse assisting us 5 times a week (usually 5pm-6 am) and on these nights, I manage to get a a fair amount of sleep (usually in bed by 1:30 am and up by 7:30 am). I won't hav...

CONGRATS MANDY: Your little Ellie looks absolutely gorgeous. Despite complications, she looks like a perfect little angel. I think we have all delivered by now, no? I'm off to the grocery store in just a minute, so only have time for a quickie here. A few BF questions . . . I am only BFing 1-2 a day...

Rebecca: You are NOT ALONE in any of your concerns -- head butting while BFing, nose itches, crying at the same time and nothing to wear. I'm entering wk 3 now and most of my feeds are by bottle (BUT use only breastmilk). For many of the feeds, the little ones are simply too tired to latch on for an...
