Babyluv – So my episode sounds familiar to you huh? Well, maybe that means I will meet her pretty soon but I hope she stays in for just a little longer.

I am so glad that your BP finally came down and the babies are doing well. I was just imagining your two older kids with their new siblings and it brought a huge smile to my face. I know they are going to just love them!

Ronda – Thanks for the encouragement. I am trying my best to keep her in there for a little longer!

AFM – Well, I am a little anxious to find out if I will be put on bed rest in the hospital on Monday or not but hopefully her stomach has grown to the size it is supposed to be. I will check in with you lovely ladies later today.

Hey ladies,

Sara for some reason i missed a page and only copped the pics of your beautiful twins!!! Congrats they are just gorgous i hope you are recovering well xxx

Katie OMG he is just scrumptious!!!!! Sorry you ended up under ga for c\s seems like a lot of inductions do lead to c/s, i hope you recover soon. Can you believe after all ye have been thro. your miracle is finally here, i am sure its such a relief to know that it was worth the difficult journey, i just cant wait for that feeling.

Angela hopefully Gabriella will cook a little longer but you are at such a safe stage now even if she is born early.

Babyluv what precious moments it must have been to introduce dd and ds to the twins, so glad to hear the bp is now under control and hopefully ye will all be home over the weekend.

Hope i checked the list and it looks like you may have had your c\s on the 3rd i hope all went well.

AFM so if Katies list is right and unless somebody else wants to beat me looks like i am next :shock: AHHHH 9 days and counting, the braxton hicks and period pains have subsided so she prob. will hang on for another while yet!!! Ah well maximum of 19 days hey if i can wait 8 yrs i am sure 19 days is a breeze :lol: though jason is literally begging her to come asap...last night i was watching tv on the recliner, he comes over pulls my legs apart and shouts "Kayla come towards the light" i swear i nearly peed on myself laughing he can be such and ejit sometimes!!!

Gi – It is great to hear from you. I was beginning to think Kayla already showed up too! Thank you so much for the reassurance about Gabriella’s birth. I have to tell you that I laughed so hard when I read your comment about Jason and “come to the light”. He is so darn funny!!!!! Tell him thanks for the laugh…

Gi - I hope she comes soon too! Can't wait to see pictures of another gorgeous baby! Jason is hilarious with his whole 'come to the light' comment. It seems like he is always keeping a smile on your face. I bet he is usually the comic relief. :)

Angela - I hope Gabriella's belly is ok! Sounds like you had an eventful night the other night. At least you are far enough along now that if she needs to come out now, she will be just fine! Hopefully she can keep cooking for a while longer though.

Babyluv - Glad breast feeding is going so well for you and the girls! I couldn't get to that point of doing both at the same time. You are such a trooper! lol I still am not there, but they aren't on the boob as often anymore. Ethan more so than Angelina. :) Don't worry too much about being hunched over. That won't really go away for a few more days if you are anything like me. Each step for me was painful so I dreaded that first step each time. lol Whenever the cath came out and I had to pee the first time, I found it hard to relax for the first few days... do you happen to have that issue? Hopefully you will be out tomorrow and get your family all together for the weekend! Congrats again on your two perfect babies!

Katie - You, the pista resistance!! Ryan is absolutely perfect! I can't believe how though doctor's labeled you normal and it's been an uneventful pregnancy, it sure has proven to be exciting and dramatic towards the end. I figured there would be a surprise but I figured it would be an early arrival, not boy parts! Then being late, going through 13 hours of labor just to be put to sleep and FINALLY wake up to meet your subborn but gorgeous baby boy! Wow... you did it mama! Congratulations for getting through it and bringing someone so precious into the world! I hope you are starting to heal well! Don't rush into doing too much! Let Chris be super dad and relax, take your time getting up and doing things. Trust me, going to the bathroom and getting up and going to bed is all you will likely have the energy to do for the first day or two at home. After that you still have to take it easy! While I was in the hospital, one of the babies sounded like they were spitting up in the bassinet so out of instinct I jumped up in my bed... BOY did that hurt! So be careful, it takes a lot longer to get back on track when you try to do too much. I was told that I probably set myself back by doing that and that was my first night! No wonder I was such a big baby with the pain. lol Anyway... enough about me, YOU just had RYAN! And just 4oz shy of 9lbs! I bet he is going to be tall. :) I can't wait to hear your story when you come home. I am sure that there is some humor in it. There is no rush though, just take care of you and that beautiful baby boy! Love love love love!

Question for anyone who cares to answer... when did your symptoms kick in? I'm 5w5d and not really feeling much except mood swings, lower back pain and some very overly sensitive nipples. I'm not concerned because the betas have been great - but I'm wanting to feel more pregnant than I do right now. LOL

Sonya - I think for me I started to feel my pregnancy symptoms around 6 or 7 weeks or so. But with this last pregnancy, I didn’t develop the severe nausea until I hit 10 weeks and then I felt like I ran into a brick wall … lol. It is funny that you asked this question because they say every pregnancy is different and they are right for sure. I am sure your symptoms will intensify as your pregnancy progresses.

Good morning ladies!

So much excitement around here lately....congrat to all the new mamas!

Sara-your twins are beautiful. hope your bp goes down very soon so that you don't have to stress over that. You will probably be home in the next day or so and I can't wait to hear the updates.

Katie-Ryan is delicious and what a big boy!! Both you and Hazel are setting a trend here for big boys!!! I can't wait to see him without the hat or blankets on and you get to take advantage of all those cute baby clothes you had to run out and buy!!!! I hope your recovery from the cs is speedy and I can't wait to hear from you.

Babyluv-how are the girls doing?!?! I can't believe you already had them and we were due the same date!!! I can't wait to see your photography skills with the little ones and hope your feeling well.

Angela-any update if you have to be on bedrest? hope your doing well.

Steph-how are you doing with the twins and Andrew back at work? any update on his promotion?

AFM...today I have my maternity shoot which I'm excited about!!! Last night I was starting to get period like cramps every 10 minutes and for a few minutes convinced myselft it might be m time!!! they went away so I just think that Flick is moving more into position and putting pressure lower which I'm not used to!! I go in Wednesday morning for a check so hopefully I will have started to dilate!! I have started to pack up my hospital bag since today I'm officially 37 weeks and DH is starting to get nervous!!! hope all is well and I will chat with you ladies later.

Sara- the babies are so beautiful. I loved the pics of them all snuggled. I hope you are feeling better and are starting to adjust at home. I love the names you picked out!

Katie- OMG Ryan is such a cutie! Sorry you had such a long labor with him only to end up under general. It's all worth it in the end though, right! Did Chris cry? I have a feeling my DH will. He gets misty eyed now when he sees my tummy move. I hope you are healing fast from the cs. And I hope you darling doggie is behaving for you! ;) No more fur and drooling doggie toys in the nursery now that Ryan is here!

Franca- I feel the same things sometimes. I feel like maybe I have over done it and I lay down to rest. How often you you see your OB? I would bring it up next time for sure or call if it gets too bad.

Claud- Have fun on your maternity shoot. You are doing it outside right? Or am I thinking of something else? I hope you are able to avoid the traffic today with the marathon going on! I can't wait to see pics. I know you will look gorgeous.

Sonya- My only first trimester symptom was being tired. Around 9w all symptoms had gone away...so much so that I demanded another u/s just to make sure there was still a hb. I agree though, once you can feel him/her it is much more reassuring.

GI- Your DH is so funny! Sounds like he would get along marvelously with mine. My DH keeps making Alien references since he can watch my tummy move now. Since you are probably next how are you feeling?

Angela- How are you doing sweetie?

I know I missed people but I can't scroll back any further~! I hope everyone is doing well with their new families and impending births!

AFM- I am bored to death being off work. Yet, I have so much to do. I still have to clean out the nursery. I have to get it painted asap. Our crib that was supposed to take 8-12w is in already after only 5w. I mean that's great but I am no where near ready for it to be delivered. I did finally give in and order our crib bedding since we didn't get it for the shower. It kept showing on back order so that made me nervous. It is now showing as processed and on its way to my house! WOO HOO! We ordered our glider and are waiting for that to be delivered. I was able to hire a great housekeeper. She has been a great help. She is only here every few weeks to do floors and bathrooms and I do the rest. It's been a Godsend though. My sister-in-law told me she hired one while she was pregnant 8 years ago. She still has one. LOL I guess it's one of those things that if you get used to it you really don't want to let it go!

Question ladies...did anyone get super stuffed up or have lots of phlem in their chest during pregnancy? I am super stuffy every morning. After an hour or so it goes away. However, by the end of the day I am so tired and it becomes difficult to breathe. I have to use my inhaler way more than I ever have had to before I was pregnant. It's kind of freaking me out. The only thing that calms me down is feeling my little kickboxer in there saying hello.

I have another OB apt on Tuesday. I am hoping he doesn't tell me that there is even more protein in my urine. I am so scared of developing pre-e. I am thinking that they will have me go for my 1 hr GTT this week. Cross you fingers. I hope I pass!

Hi girls,

PA sorry have no chesty issues but just mention it to your doc. next appt it is a relief though when you feel the baby move isnt it??? Best of luck on Tues fingers crossed all is well. I too wasnt ready to do my nursery and most of our stuff arrived early but we left it flat packed till 30 wks i think having a nursery just made it seem so real.

Angela i hope all goes well with little Gabriellas next appt, i am sure you are super nervous given your history but again you have passed so many milestones this pregnancy. I now think Gabriella has decided she wants to beat Kayla into delivering 1st!!!

Steph how is life with the twins, are ye settling into a routine yet???? I hope you are recovering well from the c/s.

Sonya have been religioulsy following your journey on the other site and also really enjoy reading your blog you are such a natural gifted writer that i have often wondered how great you would be at writing a book about your journey. As for symptoms besides having period type cramps nearly daily till i came off the progesterone at 17 wks i had literally NO Symptoms!! No morning sickness, no sore boobs, no tiredness though i reckon thats cause i was on steroids till 12 wks and i only ever believed i was pregnant cause of my growing belly :lol: Best of luck with your scan i really have a good feeling about this one 3rd times a charm!!!

Claud sounds like you have the same pains as me, i was woken twice last night with really bad braxton hicks that travelled right around my back and i had bad period pains then they stopped....damit!!! But it is exciting wondering is this it?????

Franca those pains are normal, i was watching an OB talk about pregnancy and he said the 3rd trimester brings a lot of pains and aches and he was right but if you are concerned just tell your OB.

Katie hope you and Ryan are recovering from the birth, how is motherhood???? Can you believe he is here :lol:

AFM funny ye should laugh over jasons comments cause now he has decided that cause my cervix is fully shut she cant see the light so is now shouting "Come towards the voice"!!! He has even started to bribe her and said he will go out and buy her loads of shoes if she comes, now that i would love to see Jason in a baby shop on his own. He did say that he is loving this stage knowing it can happen any time, he says he cant wait for the phone call or me telling him its time...thats if we dont go over but i reckon since we have started ivf 4 yrs ago everything has been set to a specific time and date and i cant imagine spontanous labour i think we will get an induction date but time will tell!!!
