Hello to all. I hope that everyone had a good weekend. I just wanted to log in quickly to say Congratulations to Karen for the birth of little Nathan. I was surprised to read that he came early but I was very happy to read that he's home and doing well. I wish you and DH the best.

There are a few other ladies that we haven't heard from in a while so I hope that all is well with them too, as alot of us all expecting to deliver within the coming weeks.

Hi Ladies, I just wanted to pop on and say congratulations to Karen and I am so glad that Nathan is home!!! It makes it all start feeling real now that so many babies are coming - I am scheduled for a c-section on Aug. 26 and it seems so far away still.

Good Luck to all you ladies.

Please send me all the P&PT that you can muster up.

Of course my cycle is not going so well. When ever does it? I only have 3 follies and I will trigger tonight for an ER on Friday. RE thinks I should have an egg in each follie but he doesn't realize my track record of empty follicles so I don't have much hope. O'well, i can't change anything and I am so tired of being on this roller coaster ride that I just don't have enough nerve to cancel this cycle. I know I only need 1, so my little brain is trying to concentrate on that right now.

Why can't anything be easy?

Hope eveyone else is well. Sending tons of prayers to all of you.

hi chris, sending tons of prayers to you also. maybe it's good 'you don't have the nerve to cancel'.. despite low follie count, maybe this is it.. miracles happen all the time, so why not you and why not now.

all the best to everyone, karen

Karen --- A BIG CONGRATS to you and Nathan! How exciting. I am glad all is going well and that although he was early he is home now! How is motherhood? Are you tired all the time??? I bet the weather is wonderful right now though!!!!


Chris --- Don't despair! I had 3 this last cycle and all made embies and one was able to keep going to give me little Kate. So, it really does take just one. I think us ladies with fewer follies sometimes have better numbers for how many are actually good eggs. I know it sucks and I hated seeing such low numbers and worried they would cancel me but .... a friend recently had 19 follies, 10 mature eggs, 3 fertilized and 2 that made it to day 3. She just got a bfp.... I find it interesting that you can start with 19 or 3 and still get 2 good embies.

I will looking for some good news from you! This one could be it...I know, I know, but it could be and I am sending all the baby dust there is your way!

Thanks Karen and Lynnicat -- I have ER @ 3:30 CST. I am going to go crazy because I can not eat or drink till after ER. Talk about pure torture.

Happy Friday to all of you.

Karen - Hoping you are having fun with your little baby boy.

Hi Ladies,

Sorry I have not been on for a while, DH and I spend most of our days at the NICU. Finally since April 21sst when I delivered at 26 weeks 2 days we will be bringing Arianna home in the next 10 days or so. She is 3lbs 15 oz and doing great. Angelina became Sepsis 6 weeks ago and we almost lost here to the same Bacteria we lost Alexa to at 8 days old. She to now is doing great but a bit smaller at 3 lbs, so she has some more growing to do before she comes home.

I am so happy to see everyone doing well and continuing to post. I will keep you updated on the babies.

All my love to everyone
