Hi Everyone! Rio - Can't believe you are having potty training success already. What's your secret? Gecko - Congrats on DH's promotion. Evie doesn't like meat, either. She sucks it a little and spits it out. It is a challenge. We have been pureeing one meal a day to make sure she is getting protein....

Ghost - estrogen question

Hello! My best friend (38 years) is trying to conceive her second child. She is using an OPK that detects not only the LH surge but the preceeding high estrogen as well. For the last 12 days she has gotten a high estrogen reading but still no LH surge. It is day 20 of her cycle. Do you know why some...

Hi Everyone, We received some unsettling news yesterday. Our little girl isn't growing as she should be growing. She is in the 27th percentile but her stomach is only in the 7th percentile. They tell us that this is a sign that she isn't getting all of the nutrients she needs. They suspect it is a m...

Hey Loopie and Rio! I didn't know you guys were stimming. Good luck to you both! Rio, I was considered a poor responder. I remember seeing various definitions of it but less than 5 is what sticks in my head. I think that referred to retrieved eggs. And, I had a way worse lead follicle situation than...

Hands-free bra for pumping milk?

Hello! I would like to try one of those nursing bras that are supposed to allow you to pump milk without having to hold the cups to your boobs. Supposedly the cups fit in there and so you have your hands free.

Anyone tried one of these? Recommend any particular one?

Thanks! :D

Corny - I just read your story on your blog. I'm am so glad to hear that you are well and stunned by what a close call you had. Do I understand correctly that this emergency was due entirely to the rupture of the scar and not to the other issue with the blood vessel that they have been so concerned...

Hi Everyone! Just trying to keep our thread going! How are the holidays for everyone? Our little ones are old enough to really enjoy it this year! We are staying home this year b/c I am too pregnant to travel. I bought Evie boy/girl twin baby dolls with a twin stroller for Christmas so that she can ...

Thanks, CT_Michele. You're right. It's inevitable. Lately, Evie has literally bumped her head on the walls! I have not idea how to child-proof a wall :lol: She'll turn around quickly or be looking at something in her hand and smack. Down she goes. Regarding treatment, it looks like you have some goo...

CT_Michele - Crap. That just totally sucks. I take it Connecticut is not a state that mandates fertility coverage. Any luck w/IKEA? Any other company that has insurance through a state that mandates coverage? Katie - Chicago is a beautiful city. You should see it in the summer. So much to do and so...

Hey Rio! That sounds really nice. Aren't you near the bay area? We thought about Colorado. My brother used to live there and we did our fertility treatments there and thought it was beautiful. We kind of hesitate to go too far west b/c it makes it a much longer flight to Switzerland -- where DH is f...

CT_Michele - How have you been? Suga - How are you feeling? Haven't heard from you lately. Things are fine here. Evie is more fun ...

Nursing Bras!? Help!

I'm looking for a good nursing bra that will offer lots of support and that is reasonably priced. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!
