CONGRATULATIONS CONGRATULATIONS TO LIZ AND TOMMY!!!!!!!!! :D :D I was off the thread for a few days and when I read about her mucous plug and was about to type to her that it sounds like it's time, and I got to the next page, and IT WAS! SOOOOOO happy for both of you!! How wonderful! Much love and Gods blessing on you all!!!!

Babyloves~ You are probably holding your beautiful baby as I type this. I hope all goes/went well, and cannot wait to hear everything!!! God Bless!!

Just a quick post ladies as much like all of you I have lots n lots to do. Long story short, I began itching like mad from head to toe on Sat night. No rash... nothing. Turns out I may have cholestasis (a liver problem that occurs in pregnancy). The tests that would be conclusive take up to a week to come back, and it can be harmful to the baby, so I have opted to do an amnio tomorrow to check for lung development, and if all is well which we anticipate it will be, I will be getting my c-section on Friday at 3:30. I am freaking out!!! :shock: I can't believe that after all of this waiting I will be holding my son in less than 48 hours. It's so surreal! Well, it sounds like we are all popping one after the other, so it will be interesting to see who goes next, and to keep in touch as our little angels grow.

Love all you ladies! Your support and friendship has been unbelievable!

Tom & Liz-all of our best to ALL of you-We wish you a speedy recovery, Liz, and how great NO time in the NICU for your boys!! God Bless!!! Alreadyblessed-that's so crazy, I wish you & the baby Best Of Luck, I'm sure the lungs are just fine, since the baby isn't premature at this point!! Wishing you a quick recovery too. As for me, 38 weeks today, and not even a twinge that anything is gonna happen anytime soon......so I will rejoice in the rest of your stories for now, and wait for my own to unfold. Healthy wishes to both mommas and babies!!!!! Jennifer

ALREADYBLESSED--
:shock: :shock: :shock: you're going to have your baby boy in your arms in the next few hours. EXCITING! I'm sorry about the liver issue though. Being itchy all over sounds awful, but since it's a pregnancy related thing, hopefully it'll go away as soon as your boy is out. I'm going to say a special prayer for you tonight. Let us know how everything goes with the amnio. Thinking of you :)

BABYLOVES---you must be with your sweet babies right now. Sending lots of love.


JENNY--you said it, let's see who's next!!! I have no point of comparison but I think this ballerina is ready to be in my belly for a little bit longer as well, although I should say that my body is really getting to that point of being done with the pregnancy.

Woohhooooo ladies, it's so surreal to be "here" sharing these "oh, so special" moments with you all. It makes me feel quite emotional, especially when I think about my long journey with pregnancy loss and infertility. In a way all of that feels so far away.

Jenny and esperanza, you two will be hanging out and keeping me company I hope! Soonest I'll go will be the last week in April.

alreadyblessed - How was the amnio? I guess you get your results tomorrow morning? They will do the same for me around 36-37 weeks but I've already had steroid shots for baby girl's lungs. I'm sure at 38 your little guy is ready to go. Good luck tomorrow!

I had a scare yesterday. I realized at about 1 PM that I hadn't felt the baby move all day. Watched closely for the next few hours, had a sweet drink and a snack, lied down, but still nothing. So I called my OB just after 4 but they were closing and told me to go into labor & delivery at the hospital to get checked out. When I got there the first nurse couldn't find the heartbeat with the fetal monitor. I nearly passed out! But the second one found it and when the Dr. looked at her on the ultrasound all was fine. She's even starting to practice breathing. I'm so glad it was just a scare!

Looking forward to seeing baby pics here soon!

HI LADIES!!!!!!!
Well, I went in for the amnio today and they called at 3:30 and said the results were "intermediate" and they needed to do another test which wouldn't be back until tomorrow a.m.
The doc wound up calling me at around 8 p.m. this evening and said the tests came back early, and everything looks good. So, by this time tomorrow, I should be holding my son!!! :D :D
My c-section is scheduled for 3:30 pm. That was the earliest they had. I'm freaking out! Don't know how I will sleep tonight! I won't have computer access in the hospital, but I will be sure to update everyone when I am home.
Everyone please stay healthy and well, and who knows, by the time I come home Monday or Tuesday, there may be more mommies on this thread!!!!! :D :D

alreayblessed--how exciting that you would be holding your little angel in less than 24 hrs! Anay was also born late afternoon at 3.18 pm...his friend is going to be closer. :) we will be so eagerly waiting for the news.

Kerpepples - Thanks for your concern. Anay is not collic but burping remains an issue. I read all possible articles available on net, they all assured me nothing much to worry, excessive vomiting or crying is a matter of concern.

esperanza-ur lil ballerina must be waiting to see her mom. Its so enthralling that we started the journey together, some joined midway, we had our struggles, our good or bad days...fought on with each other's support and now here we are s= celebrating the births of our angels.

Cheers to our support group!!!

Alreadyblessed, Congrats, Congrats, Congrats!!!!!!! Kerpuppies, you are right, I think that esperanza and I will be the ones hanging out for at least a while. Sorry you had that scare, that's why I started renting a doppler at 9 wks, and havent returned it yet....I am too neurotic and would have been in the ER countless times without it (he-he) I know, dh thinks I'm CRAZY!!!

Hello every one. I'll do some personals later if that's ok as I've had my hands full the last few days. I just wanted to come on and say thank you all for your replys and well wishes.

The boys are doing great and I'm healing thank God. Just really tired and ready to sleep for like 3 days...lol. Thanks again to all and I promise I'll have some pics up soon.

Love to all.

So glad you're home with all your guys Liz! You know we're anxious to see pics of Sonny & Tommy. I'd love to hear how you're doing after your c-section as well. But first things first - heal, rest, and love on your boys!
