Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Wehavehope~ It is possible for it to go down and it still be a viable pregnancy. When you transfer more than one embryo, you can miscarry one and the other still be fine, which would make your beta go down. I don't want to give you false hope, but this is entirely possible...it happened to me. Hang ...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Leora, there are no words to comfort you right now that I could possibly say. As a mother that has lost children as you have, I know the heartbreak, and I feel it with you. Your heart will one day heal, but until then, let your tears flow, and let the love of those around lift you up when you feel y...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Leora, it's good to hear from you! It's surprising how overwhelming and exhausting each day is in the NICU. It' up and down everyday, sometimes just in a matter of seconds. Pumping is tough, but it's the one thing you can do that makes it feel like you are helping in some small way, that will change...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Leora, I am sitting here pumping and typing with one hand right now...yes pumping is rewarding but sooooooo very tiring. :) Glad to hear from you. Please know that I will be praying for you, and your boys, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. We have been doing this NICU busin...

Congratulations Rio! What's her name? Glad you got to spend a little time with her. It won't be long until you can spend all your time with her. :) So happy for you!

Re: Beautiful Babies Born in 2011/2012

Hey ladies. :) Nice to see our group growing. Marlo is 11 weeks old now! She is having trouble with anemia, and had to have another transfusion yesterday. She's getting so big, and now weighs 4lbs 7.5oz. She is taking most of her feeds by bottle now, just not able to finish the whole thing quite yet...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

GAH! I had 4 pages to catch up on, and boy was there a lot to catch up on. :) Ryann, I am so happy for you! Good job growing such good sized babies. Hang in there, the NICU shouldn't be too bad for you since they weren't terribly early. Can't wait to see a picture of your two sweet little ones. Blai...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Here is my little Marlo, from a few days ago. She is 8 weeks old today! I am exhausted, but to look at her sweet face makes it all worth it. :) My hubby is gone to Australia, so I am on my own with the kids and all this hospital stuff. Now I have to add in to that selling the house, and furnishings ...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Anna is right about the contractions...they are just tight in the beginning. They can be making changes to your cervix, and so can the pressure of carrying twins. I'd go in and get on the monitors. If I hadn't gone in when I didm it would have been too late and I would have delivered Marlo 2 weeks e...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Ryann, I would push for steroids shots, just in case. Since they are twins you have to be more cautious. I see a lot of babies in the NICU, born around the time you are, and they sometimes struggle a bit with their breathing. It's nothing like what we have experienced...but just in case I think it's...
