hi all! sorry it's been so long...i've been reading but finding it hard to formulate a thoughtful response with being busy with nathan. he's doing great, now 9lbs 11 oz, more alert, smiles. just a beauty..we're so in love.

congratulations to everyone else who's made it this far. Ny and chris- i've been thinking lots about you and sending out energy for your miracles to come. i so admire your perseverence despite how hard it's been. i believe you should keep trying til you no longer want to, no matter what your family says NY- do what's right for you. if a part of you believes this is possible, then keep trying, cause that's what i did, and eventually it worked. i saw 2 quotes that i thought of you when i read it:

'faith is knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof'

and
'You can come out of the furnace of trouble two ways: if you let it consume you, you come out a cinder; but there is a kind of metal which refuses to be consumed, and comes out a star.'

i think we're all stars... :D refuse to be consumed..please let us know about the development of your embies
love to all, karen

Karen,

I love your quotes! I plan to be up your way at some point soon to visit my inlaws. It would be fun to introduce our little babies! I LOVE being a mom and I can not wait for all of us here to experience that!


So I am praying for NY and Chris to get their little miracles soon!

Karen -- I am thinking around January is the time frame so I will keep up with you and let you know! I love our little miracles and hope the rest of the group here is gonna join us.

Kat...where are you? I am worried about you!

Chris...what is your timeframe on the next cycle? I keep asking that...I know you decided to try one more with you own eggs and I really hope it works.

NY..when will you do your transfer back with the good eggs you already have??


Hope all are doing well!

Hey Ladies, glad to see everyone and their babies are doing well.

Lynniecat -- Congrats on the delivery of your little baby Katherine. She was born the day after my B-day. :lol: I will be doing another cycle in Nov. I should start stims around Oct 26, ER should be the first week of Nov. So so far away.

Karen - Thanks for the quotes they were beautiful. It gets tougher and tougher as time goes by.


AFM - Not much going on. Thought maybe I was PG, AF is late and is never late. Did a beta test yesterday and of course a BFN. O'well, I wasn't getting my hopes up.

I can not wait for our ladies who are still cycling to get their BFPs. I wonder if we could form a little group outside this group since we are almost a year from our first posts....

Kat, seems to be gone for awhile and that makes me nervous. I hope all is good with her and her three sweeties. I know its hard to log in with us all so busy!


Chris..I guess its November for you. I think I mentioned it before, but AP never did anything for me and oddly the two cycles I used it were BFNs! But this lady did not even insert the needles...she used some Japanese method where she would just touch the needles to my skin. I have to say, it seemed really silly, though relaxing...

Hi Lynniecat and Karen,

Take Care

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I posted any comments but much like many of the other ladies who have had their babies, I'm constantly busy. However, I have been trying to read the posts whenever I have a free moment. Congrats to everyone that I haven't congratulated yet. I hope that you and your babies are doing great.

Chris I see that you and NY are still hanging in there and I am still praying that you will get you guys will get the BFP in your next cycles.

As for me, I am enjoying being a mother and I'm so thankful that I am able to stay at home with Talyah. Hopefully I can continue to stay home with her at least until she's 1. As for Talyah, she's a beauty and seems to be growing so fast. She was 6lbs 8.7 oz at birth, she's 2months old today and weighs 12lbs. 7oz. Her pediatrician said for me to take her off of formula since I breastfeed but I can't seem to pump enough milk to bottle it up. Other than the fact that I'm always sleepy since she isn't sleeping during the night, things are going well. I'm going to post a pic of her on photobucket while I have a free moment.

Gina, wonderce and kas your babies are adorable.

Love to all and until next time,take care!

Someone remind me the photobucket account and I will post Kate's pictures... but until then you can go to katherineemma.shutterfly.com to see candid pictures of her birth, of me and and of DH! And yes, those beautiful views are the golden gate bridge and downtown SF! My labor room was a corner room on the 15th floor with amazing and unobstructed views of the golden gate bridge and lots of San Francisco. The nurses told me I went into labor at the right time and go the best room in the house! Cool eh! We got to spend almost 2 days in that room. It even has a guest bed for DH!


Lee--- I am glad you are still here, can you update me on this thread as to how you continue to do or PM me? I hope things are going well or at least you have some good future plans!


NY--hope you are doing some FETs soon! I also hope you new job is going well. My brother at GS is doing well and seems to be in a better mood these days, though he does seem crazy busy again...

Kat...where are you!


wishing_4_blessings - I am glad u are enjoying being a mom...I am too. My little girl is very easy...too easy and at first I was worried about how much she slept, but she seems to be developing normally (remember that she has the possible extra chromosome)! I must say that I love being a mom and immediately want another baby. DH does not and I do so badly now that I see the joys of having one. I think its totally worth if for our other ladies to keep on working for their miracles!!!

Marynaz

I am glad you are doing well with the twins, wow so much work, but I am secretly jealous you have two (or not so secretly jealous)!!!


Chris...hope your spirits are up!


Karen -- Looks like its Yuma for Christmas and VI in the early spring! I can not wait to meet! So much fun after sharing our stories on line!


Anyone think another little discussion group somewhere else might be more appropriate for us to chat? Or is this fine? Just a thought!

I can not wait for Chris and NY to get their BFPs!!! Man, will that make me SOOOOO incredibly happy! Once that happens, we should have a big get together somewhere!!! :-)
