Ashley:yea!!! Sending lots of calming positive energy your way. Can't wait for your update! So happy that your special day has arrived. :D

Lou: adorable pics!

Blair:so glad to hear LO's still baking. You are amazing. Keep it up!!

Mama boo: Glad to hear your fluid levels are back up. Take it easy.

AFM: Looks like my Levi is coming home on Monday!! Very confusing emotions, because it is going to be so hard to have them split up. I will be home mostly with Levi, but will have to visit my little Sofia once or twice a day. They are both doing great with weight and maintaining their temperature in the open beds. It is just that Sofia still has bradys occasional when she eats. (like 2-4 times a day).

They are two weeks old today. Wow.

Margi- I am soooo excited that Levi will be coming home. I'm sure it will be tough leaving Sofia but hopefully she will stop those bradys so she can come home soon to join her brother.

Lou- Those pics are adorable. I love how she's smiling at her daddy!!

Ashley- sending positive thoughts your way. Hoping Athena has already made her debut and that you had a relatively easy labor. Can't wait to hear all about it.

SD- you should be next!! I promise I am doing my best not to jump the line.

Kat- hope your pains are getting better. I know it stinks but I'm glad baby Lucas is still doing well.

AFM- still holding out. Contractions are anywhere from 4-9min apart and that's with Procardia 20mg every 4 hrs. Going to try and take it as easy as possible over the next few days so we can try our best to make it to 32wks. One of my MDs thinks its possible, the rest are just glad I've made it this far. The girls are also getting measured again next week which I am excited for. They were so big last time I'm hoping they are continuing to progress nicely.

Ashley. Good luck. Praying for easy complicarion free delivery. Hopefylly she is already here!

Blair. Great job girl! Just keep baking those little ones. Everyday is a huge difference,

Lou. Love the pics.

Bliss. Good luck with new dr search. You are a brave women but great job taking control.

Margi. Hurray for levi getting to go home but i know it will be tough leaving sofia behind. I was so luckY to be able to take both mine at same time. They kept ella a extra day so i could. Hopefully sofia will be do with the bradies soon so she can go home. Is it like the apnea and she has to have five days without before she can go home?

SD. Your turn soon. I know you are ready!

Kat. Hope you feel better soon or they find something to ease ypur pain.

Afm. Busy with the babies. Meaning to post new pics but no time. No family help for two weeks so just dh and i. Will be flying solo during work week. Will be fun. Babies are great. Both have gained two pounds in six weeks.i am tired most of the time but lovi g the babies! I still look at them and can not beleive they are mine! Anyone else feel like that?

Hope all are well!

Ashley- Congrats!!!! Sooo excited that baby Athena made her debut...and that your birth plan ended up working out. Cant wait to see pics and hear all about it. Glad she came while your mom was visiting too!!

Stephanie- Your little men are getting sooo big. They are both very handsome little guys and I love seeing the new pics.

SD- Could be any day now!!!

kjm/Ryann- How are those little ones doing?

Margi- Still planning on taking Levi home today?? Cant wait to see more pics of those beautiful babies!!

Bliss- Found a new MD you like yer? Hope things are going well.

AFM- Not the best wknd (had 2 scares that almost sent me back to L&D), but am still hanging out on Antepartum. MD thinks things are probably going to happen soon but I am bound and determined to make it to 32 wks (Thurs). Had another BPP and measurement and both girls are looking great. A measured 4lb 6oz and B measured 4lb 15oz. Trying to lay on my side and avoid making contractions closer together. Hope everyone is doing well and sorry if i missed anyone.

Hey all! I know it's been a WHILE. I wanted to check in and get updated on my cycle buddies BLISS, BLAIR, SD, FUN, MARGI, and several others that came just before us like HOPE and LOU... I've had a roller coaster of a pregnancy with several threatened pre term labor and hospital stints since 23 weeks I gave birth at 37 wks 1 day to Sage Astin,a healthy 6.7 lb girl! :D I can't begin to express the emotion and gratitude that overwhelmed me knowing how this process all began and all the disappointment over the yrs of TTC. Ladies, it was well worth the journey...
MARGI-what a shock for me to chk in and see those truly "beautiful babies" already here, but looking goregeous and apparently thriving so well. Having had a premie previously I can tell u being an all day NICU mom is making all the difference in their speedy development. Hang in there. I know it's hard.

Ashley- I couldn't believe you were still preggers, but congrats on the lil princess.

Blair- Honey my gosh! 40+ days in the hospital is unbelievable! After 4 days one time I was ready to tear my hair out. Mag is the worse and procardia ain't much better so hang in there. I had to keep telling my little one "it's not like you have a job to get to, so just wait. At lt least til 37." So my advice is to play a mental game with ur body and the babies since it's said they talk to each other to engage labor. I'm so happy u made it this far though.

SD good luck with mom and your delivery. I'm sending positive vibes ur way. You're a tough gal.

Fun-Good luck on ur induction...in the end ur body will decide how baby arrives so I wish u a simple, easy delivery.

Boo-happy ur NST looked good and i wish uall the best for your section. This was my second one and my body isn't bouncing back like I wished so I'll encourage you to prepare ahead by resting all u can bcuz it's rough!

Lou-your little Chloe is to die for! Congrats. Daddy looks like he's in 7th heaven :)

BLISSY-Been kinda depressed about my Gators, but thkfly Sage has taken my mind off of it. :lol: I know your GT will be good the first go 'round. Good luck.

Ashley & Crissylove - CONGRATULATIONS on the arrival of your little girls! Can't wait to see pics of your little cuties!

Stephanie - Jaxon & Brady are gorgeous!! LOVE the new pics you posted! :D

Blair - You are doing soooo great!! Sounds like those girls of yours are doing fabulously with those estimated weights, wow!

Margi - Have a great "Levi's first day at home" today! I know it will be difficult to have Sofia still at the hospital, but I just know she'll be home in no time.

Ashley - CONGRATS! I was stalking for an update :D I can't wait for pictures. I'm so glad you got the birth experience you wanted!

Crissy - long time no 'see' - CONGRATS to you as well! I'm so glad to hear your little girl make her arrival safely, and full-term.

Blair - you are doing sooooo well, honey! Over 4lbs each is amazing! I know it's hard to think about a long (ish) NICU stay, but those girls will be home before you know it. I hope you make it to Thursday also - and maybe even next Thursday too!

Stephanie - BEAUTIFUL boys! I can't believe they are 4 months old already!

Margi - Welcome home to Levi! I know it'll be soooo hard to have them separated, but hopefully Sofia will be home in just a little while.

AFM - well.... here we go again. Tomorrow is my last BCP and then we start our FET. We only have a single frostie, and we aren't quite sure how good it is. (The embryo is exactly a day behind in development, only almost a morula at day 5, but seems to be in really good shape - which my doctor says he's never seen before. Usually, embryos that are behind in development have other issues. He is giving me a 30% chance of a viable pregnancy.) If this doesn't work, our plan is to do another fresh cycle immediately after (not sure how many we'll transfer....). Hopefully, FET will be before Thanksgiving!

Maybe I'll be back here on "PAT" before you ALL leave for "Parents after Treatment"! Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Ashley- Congratulations on the birth of Athena. Can not wait to see pics and here her birth story. :)

Crissylove- Congratulations to you too on the birth of your daughter. That's awesome you managed to hold of your labor till full term :)

Blair- So sorry you ahd a rough weekend but glad yto hear they are still cooking in you and that they are getting so big. What great weights for 32 weeks!! Hang in there Thursday will come soon. Now I they still going to try and keep you from going into labor even if you reach 32 weeks?

Kjm-Glad to hear you are enjoying those babies. It must be nice to have the house to yourself with just them babies.

Stephanie- Those boys are sooo cute!! I can not believe it's been 4 months that is crazy.

Bliss-So sorry you are having a hard time with your OB's office staff. Not having much of a choice but to go there too doesn't help. Goodluck in finding a new one. 20 minutes isn't too bad and probably worth it if your not happy. I grew up in Maine so know how it is to live in a small town. I live 3 miles from my hospital and it's 20-30 minute ride due to lights and traffic.

Lou- Chloe is just precious! Love the pictures.

Margi- It's Monday and I'm sure you are excited to take Levi home. Hopefully little Sophia follows shortly. Question what are Brady's?

NwWhiz-Ya GD is not fun and following a diet is not easy. Of course when you have to follow something you always crave what your not supposed ot have. (at least that's what happens for me) Good luck witht he diet and we don't have too much longer :)

Mamaboo- Glad your levels are back up. That's such good news. Take it easy though. How is your son feeling?

Leora- So good to hear from you. Fingers crossed and lots of prayers this FET works. You deserve this more than anything!

AFM: Not too much going on. Pain was much better yesterday and today. But Friday and all day Saturday was horrendous. I even had contractions ranging from 3-7 minutes apart for almost 2 hours, I drank a ton of water and laid down and was just about to call the doctor when they slowed down thankfully. Hoping these little contractions haven't done any work to my cervix. Will find out Wednesday. Lucas I think is pretty cramped in my belly as when he moves (which is a lot) it doesn't feel too good. :( Sleep is getting difficult now.

Hope everyone has a good week!
