Kas, I don't even know what to say. I am praying for you and your babies, they are miracles. I am glad to know your labor stopped. I am so sorry you are going through this, may God give you strength, and your babies.

Hi Kas, I just want to say that my heart goes out to you, your little angels and your DH. I am so saddened by what you have to go through but I was happy to read that your labor has stopped. I too believe in miracles and I am praying for all of you. It is evident that your babies have gained your strength by hanging in there this far, so I hope and pray that God continues to give you and the babies the strength you need to continue to make it. As some of the other ladies have mentioned, you only have 17 days to go and I know that you're not going to give up. Take care and we are all here for you and will be praying for all of you.

Hello to everyone else. I just wanted to post a comment to Kas, but I hope that all is well with you ladies.

hi everyone... i too have been thinking so much of you kas..i hold my breath whenever there's a post, hoping that it's good news from you.

NY- i'm so glad to hear you got some normals' back from your testing.. i thought you had more than 5 that fertilized though? am i misunderstanding something? i think i don't totally understnad this process you're doiing.

i'm glad to hear it seems like everyone else is doing ok. i'm doing ok. i can't believe i'm this far along, some days it still shocks me and part of my brain still questions if this is all real. i was brutally tired for about 2 weeks but i seem to be out of that phase now and more energized again. i will have another ultrasound maybe in a month or so just to check things out. hugs to everyone, karen

well with that explanation i think this sounds promising NY...i remember you having lots of eggs before, but maybe the wrong ones were getting implanted..so this is good. with eliminating the non-feasible ones, things can be successful!!

NY4thtry - I am so happy that a couple of your eggs were normal. I am sure that was a relief to know that you will have at least 2 to transfer. Good luck in June when you do another cycle. So I guess you will probably doing a transfer in July or August? Good luck.

What protocol did you do? Have you done EPP? Just curious, I should be getting AF next week and then go in for more testing. I will be doing EPP and then do A/ACP.

NY that is great that you know which ones to implant, also 5 day blasts that were frozen, if they make it through all that then I can't see why they can't go all the way!!! They have to be genetically amazing!!! I have a really really good feeling for you.

Ladies, I worry when we don't hear from Kas. I pray she is going through a miracle and this is why. I think of her all the time.

Changing subjects now...it looks like some of you ladies are rounding a corner, really getting up there in the 20+ weeks. That is great, no possibility of miscarriage Karen now as it isn't a medical term after 20 weeks. Therefore I felt safe telling people I don't see normally am prego. I have found out finally at 20 weeks what we are having...are your ready...drum roll please, baby A is a boy and Baby B is a girl! I am really happy, happiest I have been in a few years.

Last year I had some added stress. I was taking care of my "second mom" my Aunt who passed just 46 days after we learned of her terminal pancreatic cancer. She was my role model and our last conversation went exactly like this:

“When you get to Heaven, will you tell God to send us a baby?” “He has two little angels waiting for you,” she said. “One with a pink bow and one with a blue bow, they are ready. God is just waiting for when you are ready for them.” “I am ready now!” I told her.

I knew there was someone in heaven looking down on me, now I have real proof, two gifts from God. I feel so blessed, I will tell her to bless everyone of you! All my best, Babyhope.

Hello Ladies:

I wanted to let evryone know my 3 little angels were born last week at 26 weeks 2 days. I was put in the Hospital 3/31/09 with severe pre eclampsia at 23 weeks 1 day and was so bad they wanteed me to terminate saying I would most likely stroke before the end of the week. I felt fine until 26 weeks 1 day when the headache started and the meds no longer were controling my blood preasure. They could not section me that day since I was on Heprin and they were afrais I would bleed out during delivery.

The girls were 1lb 2 oz, 1lb 8 oz and 1lb 11 oz.

They are doing great, no brain bleeds which is huge for their size and age. They are also coming off their vents and onto C pap in the next day or so. They are also now on .04 cc continuious feed of breast milk.

Their Neonatologists are thrilled that they are doing so well and so fast given their size and age.

I am doing ok, hardest part is coming home without them, but we know they are so well taken care of and it is just a matter of time befroe we will have our hands full taking care of our little angels.

I hope everyone is doing wonderful.

Much Hope - Just last week I was thinking about you and wondering how you were doing. Glad to hear that your little ones have arrived and are doing well, and they are almost 1 month old. :lol: :lol: Congrats on your 3 little girls. I am so happy for you.


KAS - I am always praying for you and your little ones. Hope that since you haven't posted means that you are still in the hospital baking those little ones for as long as you can.
