Literatriz, so sorry for that loser you had to encounter-but don't let that bring you down......You are so blessed to have your 3 girls in your life. Did they tell you when they may be able to go home? That idiot will be forgotten but you will be so lucky to have your girls in your life forever. Think HAPPY thoughts, your girls will feel your vibes! Lots of Love & Luck! Jennifer

I am sooooo happy for you...:D

esperanza, babyloves, kerpupples, alreadyblessed, jenny...the THE DAY is just round the corner...and the world will never be the same again.
:)
Thanks for the wishes, we are having a great time.
Last night Anay had problems in sleeping, there was a mucus formation in his nose and he could n't have sound sleep. His congestion is miniaml and I already spoke to the doc, he prescribed saline nasal drops.
He is a sound sleeper and hardly troubles me. He is gaining weight at a fair pace, he gained 200 gms in the last week.

LITERATRIZ---what a looser :evil: OMG, I just can't imagine having a baby in the NICU, showing up high, and stealing from another parent...so obvious and a very stupid thing to do. A terrible consequence of addiction. I hope they don't come near your girls and that they are able to straighten up now they they have a child...goodness! But like Jenny said, the main thing is that you have your beautiful girls that are strong like their mama :wink: Here's my present to you (I forgot to attach it last time):

X 3


SONU---it's so good to hear from you! I'm glad Anay is doing well and that his congestion is not too bad. The saline solution should help. Oooohhh, it's so sweet to think that you have your precious child with you. I can't believe that in a matter of weeks our ballerina will be out here with us (she's practicing her routine right now, by the way, hahahha).

Love to everyone! how is everybody hanging?

Hi ladies....so frustrating. Computer probs. I just typed a super long post, and it never got sent, so this will be a little shorter...UGH. :?

LIT!!!!!!!~CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D How amazing for you and DH!!!! How are you feeling post c-section? Don't get discouraged with the nursing. I had many problems with my first and gamve up and I too was very upset. With my second, I found a lactation consultant in my neighborhood, and the experience was like night and day. See if you can find someone to help you. It's not as easy as many people think It will be. Your girls were all nice size for triplets! You did a great job mommy!!! :D You and DH must be over the moon!! I would say I can't believe what happened to you with that creep, but I hear stories like this all too often. Thank God you will be far far away from this person and I hope the stress of the situation is minimal. I will pray for their baby.
Stay well, and keep us posted sweetie. I would send pics and stuff to you for congratulations, but I am not good with the computer either! :) Much love~Donna :)

Ladies~ I did all personals, and the comp. logged me out, so I will retype them next time.
I feel your pain with the insomnia....it stinks, but we are all going to have many sleepless nights very soon :D
I have been nesting like CRAZY, so havn't had any down time. Since I usually go early, I'm freaking out now to get everything done. Hormones have also taken over. The dog jumped onto the counter and ate the chicken I made for dinner the other night, and I cried for 20 mins. DH tries to understand, but when I look up, he usually looks like this.. :shock: :shock:
Then he tells me the other night that the way I wassle is "hot". What the @#$! How the heck can a waddle be "hot"??? Talk about being desperate for some. Next he'll tell me he's incredibly turned on by hemmerhoids. (thankfully I havn't had the pleasure of those). Then I go to my docs and I had to have a strp B test....anyone do this one yet? fun fun fun. Vaginal swab, and the right up the........you know what.... the BUTT!!!! So I feel officially violated, and I am not ready to give birth.
1st IVF~DD 2004
2nd IVF~ 2008 BFP
Thank you Lord for this blessing
love and miss you gram and baby b

Hi ladies! My insomnia has caught up with me - I just slept the entire morning away! It was much needed.

Literatriz - congatulations on your beautiful girls! Your names are lovely. We were considering Cecilia ourselves. What a drag about the theft. Some people truly have no scruples at all. I'm glad it wasn't worse than it was.

alreadyblessed - Thanks for the Strep B warning, yuck! I've been nesting and hormonal too.

esperanza - Ready for our showers this weekend? Coming up right around the corner! My mother-in-law got us our infant car seat and I was looking at it yesterday realizing I don't have a clue how to operate it. Time to get cracking!

sonu - poor little congested Anay! I feel so bad for sick little babies, they have no clue why they feel so terrible. I hope the drops help.

Hang in there babyloves & SilverAngel. Hope I didn't forget anyone!

just popping in to check on you all.

Literatriz- Congrats on your three precious babies. I am so sorry you had that horrible hospital experience, hopefully they moved you far away from that creep.

alreadyblessed- I just wanted to give you some advice about losing your posts. And this goes for everyone. I have been a member here for too long and have learned the hard way too many times that this server stinks and you can easily lose a post you have just spent 45 minutes typing. Now, I have learned, and everytime I write a post, when I am done, I highlight it, right click and copy it. This way when I hit submit, if it dissappears, all I have to do is post again and paste what I just wrote. It is a lifesaver, only takes a few secs, and it will become habit before you know it.

Esperanza- I am so glad you enjoyed your registering experience. I am intrigued about this virtual/facebook shower. I have never heard of that before and I consider myself to be pretty tech saavy. How does it work? I might want to look into that for when my brother's wife gets pregnant since he moved away and has a lot of family out of state.

Jennywit- Hows my CT friend holding in there? Your almost there girl! I saw your other post about the polyps and thanks for your help, it's nice to be able to ask someone with the same doc since you know what he will say.

To everyone else here, I can't wait to read all of the delivery stories and hopefully get to see some pics.

MICHELLE--I'm not sure about the "virtual/facebook" baby shower yet. My friend mentioned it the other day as we were chatting online. She said she would organize it and let me know :wink: Once I get details I'll share them with you.


Anybody planning on using cloth diapers? I'm pretty much set on doing it. Well, at least a mix. Cloth for home, disposable for trips or long days out of home.

KERPUPPLES--yes, ready for the shower :) it's funny how I was kind of embarrassed about it and now I'm obsessed with checking who has RSVPed (my friends used e-vite.com for the invitations) and what has been bought from the registry (since Target lets you check online). Ahhhh, human beings...we're funny and complex! I will be just like you when I get my presents, I'm going to have to have a crash course on how to operate everything!

ALREADYBLESSED--that really sucks about your posting. I feel your frustration. I was about to suggest the same thing as Michelle; before hitting submit, make sure to copy first. Sometimes I've been lucky enough to click the "back" arrow and voila my post is still there, then I copy it, sign back in and then paste it.

Anyway, I had my strep B test this past Thursday but it wasn't bad, really, I barely felt anything...now I'm worried that I didn't find it uncomfortable :? Oh God! have I become a freak? :shock: :shock: :shock: I don't think my midwife put the swap up my butt :oops: I felt as if she just stayed kind of out in the periphery...now you got me concerned. Geez! hehehehe. I'll get my results this week during my weekly appointment. By the way, your husband's story is hilarious! I guess he's starting feel the drought, lol! Mine has gotten a little bit more sexual lately, which is surprising since he's been so "cautious" during the whole pregnancy. We haven't done anything but his looks, games, and sexual comments are suddenly back...I'm wondering if he's working me out because he knows the pregnancy is coming to an end...hhhmmmmm.

How funny is that. My husband and I also "nookied" for the first time in like 5 months the other day. He's also been very anti sex because he's affraid to "disturbing" anything in there.

But now that the dr. said that he doesn't care about my cervical length any more and isn't worried about the babies if they where born now, he's gotten his groove back I think.

It was his idea and he initiated everything. I had tried to do that maybe 2 weeks ago when we were both awake in the middle of the night with insomnia and he turned me down flat. Saying that he was scared, which I can understand as I wasn't 100% ok with it my self, but I was more willing to take a chance.

Are you guys as glad as me that they're coming around now? I don't know about you ladies, but I missed my man. :oops:

SILVERANGEL--you are not the only one sister friend. I've been horny for half this pregnancy and my guy has been "afraid of hurting the baby" the entire time...not a good combination :evil: He thinks that after all we've gone through it's not worth it to have something go wrong just for some pleasure. I get him and appreciate his feelings, but hey...mama got needs!!!! :twisted: We did it one day after we came back from a party back when my bump was just starting to show and that was it...he began to freak out after that. He kept asking "do you think the baby is feeling this?" in the midst of it :shock:

Anyway, at least this past week he started with the sexual jokes and looks again. As I said, maybe he's "getting his groove back" now that the pregnancy is coming to an end :lol:

HE DID NOT!!!! You know, a lot of guys feel that way. My friend who got pregnant naturally told me her boyfriend wouldn't touch her after like the 2nd month becuase he was afraid that the baby would "feel" it.

My husband wasn;t afraid of that. He was afraid of putting me into labor or making my cervix open. Silly boys. :wink:

oh yes HE DID! :shock:

Don't you think it's a little bit arrogant of themselves to believe they're "that big" to hurt the baby or open a cervix? hehehheheeh :wink:

that was hilarious...so no pain for you ladies who recently did it? i'm kinda the one that doesn't want to right now as those manual exam and speculums kinda hurt...but maybe sex would be better? baby A is literally on top of my cervix too... :o

we've been talking about doing it now more too, if i pass 37 weeks, we can do it to try to induce labor (sperm can cause labor - prostaglandins and stuff) :oops:

DH is kinda excited to do it 2 wks after my delivery, and i told him 4 wks is the usual waiting time and he was disappointed..

so i guess our DHs were just being cautious and were probably horny this whole time... :D

mine also didn't have any sushi for 8 months which is a lot for us!!

btw, my GBS culture was only vaginal, not anal...but i guess different docs do diff things..

literatriz: i don't know if i officially congratulated u...but i'm very happy for u...3 delightful little girls...enjoy and congratulations again!!

Well, no nookie in this house since our 20 week scan! I'm now on pelvic rest for my previa so there won't be any either. I think we've both been afraid of causing any bleeding, so since 20 wks we've both taken care of ourselves in that dept. :oops: We both want to step it up as soon as we can after delivery though, and we've done plenty of cuddling and whatnot to stay intimate.

You all are ahead of me - is your milk starting to come in? I can squeeze clear liquid out of my nipples now. Is it colostrum? My books don't refer to it as clear. It's funny because it freaks DH out!

esperanza - I too have been stalking my registry and my evite online! Too funny!
