Hi all! Sorry for the absence - wrapping my head around taking care of these babies and getting better has required all my energy. I was Released from the hospital on 9/12. Had to continue diuretics until today to get all that preeclampsia fluid drained off. My lungs are finally clear and blood pres...

Hi all. I'm back in the hospital with fluid on my lungs due to my severe preeclampsia. My husband & his mom are home with the babies, and we have a community of wonderful friends who are pulling together to help until I get better. I'll post some pics of the babies as soon as I'm home and better. Th...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Kay - oh my goodness. I don't envy your position one bit. I know you are afraid to make a choice but I almost feel like you owe it to yourselves to explore any option you may have to keep both those babies if possible. I think it will save you much anguish in the long run. Then again, what do I know...

Thanks for the name encouragement ladies. We may just make the final decision at the hospital. Maria - are you getting any sleep? The girls look absolutely perfect! Tess - partial or complete previa? There is much better chance of it moving if it's a partial. Christy - your neighbors sounded great. ...

Crash... Jayne - hooray for BFP! Sorry you are dealing with the OHSS. Its miserable. I only had it when we were doing the CCS so I wasn't pregnant when dealing with it. Gatorade and salty, fatty foods were on the menu for me per my clinic. Can't wait for your beta! I saw your wine cellar on FB - I'm...

It wast even Batman comments...people just acting like Bruce was hideous. My mom said it was funny. It's nt like we were going to name him Shoe or something! Middle name will still be Mitchell, my maiden name, but I have a feeling his nickname could end up being Bruce :). Even I still call him that ...

Big congrats to you Lyd!!! She's small but not crazy small. Can't wait to hear more! Maria - so glad to hear that you're home! My 3 year old spent 10 days in the NICU so I'm aware of how hard that is. It's even tougher when yu go home before they do. Doesn't look like they are coming soon anyway. I'...

Re: Best USA clinics for over 42s PLEASE HELP

I was at CCRM in Colorado and listened to them on the phone with overseas patients quite frequently. I'm not sure if you called them or just looked at their website. I know they do insist on doing their own pre-cycle workup so maybe that's it? If you haven't called them you should just to make sure....

Wish I could help you hon. It's probably nothing, but I'd say talk to your doctor if it continues.

Ryann - thanks for the cheers. I need them at this point. Doc said yesterday she thinks babies will stay in all the way up to our scheduled date of Sept 10th. :shock:

CRASH Patricia - Sending all the prayers and positive thoughts I can muster for you and your 2 embis! Amy (Jayne) - good luck today! I'm 35 weeks and perfectly happy to meet these twinnies any day now. We have a delivery scheduled for Sept 10th and I'm starting to fear they might stay in that long. ...
