Hi Everyone, It sure sounds like you are all doing well and the babies are thriving. Dek is doing great. He eats everything we put in front of him - fruits, veggies, yogurt, oatmeal, rice cereal, and we are going to try smashed up egg yolk next week and maybe avocados soon just for some variety. He ...

Hi Everyone! I am sorry that I haven't posted in soooo long, but we have been sick, sick, sick, and I am barely keeping my head above water. Declan got sick a week after starting daycare and gave it to DH and I. That was the first week of February. Since then DH and I have been super sick with whate...

Rio - I am so sorry for your loss. It was just last May that I had to put my little Lucy to sleep and it still feels like yesterday. I know it was the right thing to do, but it is so hard. They give us such unconditional love. Try to focus on the good things you shared and in the knowledge that you ...

Hi! Sorry it's been a long while since I posted but we have been sick, sick, sick. First Declan got a cold which DH and I caught, then his cold turned into an ear infection. Then I guess I brought home the stomach bug that sidelined DH and I for at least 4 days. I am thankful that Declan didn't get ...

CT Michele- Try to keep the PMA. It will all work out! I had uncontrolled blood pressure before my IVF cycles and it took some time to get the meds working right but my blood pressure went down and I was still able to get pregnant. I even have a slight heart murmur and it was ok. In fact, once I bec...

CT Michele - I had a hysteroscopy which turned into a polypectomy (sp) and it was ok. They did the hysteroscopy because it was the last test they could do to figure out why I had failed both IVF attempts. She found some small polyps that were removed at that time and voila - I got pregnant the next ...

Hi All,

Wow, I have never heard of a floppy voicebox, but it sounds like they think it will clear up in time. Keep us posted. Suga - Glad the girls are doing better. I have never heard of the peroxide thi...

Hey Mellie, I stopped pumping on Dec. 10th and got my first period about two weeks later and then again exactly 28 days later in January. I guess my body just snapped back into it's old rhythm pretty fast. I wasn't getting much milk all along though so perhaps the cycle started earlier than I though...

Michelle, Don't think about this being a last chance because you never know how life will work out. You are still very young and if you decided later to have more children you may be in the position at some point to afford to pay out of pocket. Try to think of it as your last chance- for NOW. Look a...

Hi Everyone, Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. It has been crazy at work! I am really finding it hard to balance working full time and being a mom. Basically, I am being pretty ineffective in both arenas. I have to rant about my job too. I teach high school and have one of the worst classe...

I hear all you guys on the storage thing. I got 6 months free with my cycle and then had to renew it for a year ($1000) and it will be up in July. I plan to renew it again since we don't plan to do another cycle until the fall. I have four 6 day blasts so the odds are good of achieving a pregnancy a...
