Thanks so much Ryann!! Question for you, did you go to your RE for your betas and/or ultrasound or just go to an OB? I'm so used to all the testing we get in the IVF world I don't think I can wait for an 8 week u/s to see if this little bean has a heart beat! (I'm thinking about calling my RE to see if they can check me earlier. What did you do?

SD- You can certainly join!!! Welcome! I try not to add people to the roll call until they tell me they are ready! But I can certainly add you if you would like.

Kynlee-The whole 10 months 40 weeks 9 months thing confuses me. I will be 26 weeks tomorrow and have been going by weeks as every site i find gives me different answers to how to translate weeks into months. 4 1/2 weeks equal a month it seems but idk. some sites say i am 6 some say 7....i think im almost 6 but who knows.

AFM: Spent 2 hours at babies r us today working on the registry...what is everyone doing with the baby monitor & what type of bottles???

always, sure My dd is 5/3/2013

I had back pain in one area for about three weeks, my doc says its due to the ribs expanding and ligament pain. I also felt sharp pains under my breast when I sneezed and pain if I ate too much, :? he suggested bengay and xtra strenght tylenol. I used salon pas and passed on the tylenol hope this helps. If it bothers you call the doc even if its just to make you feel better.

SD- congrats!!

Wow this board has moved since I last checked in! How exciting all the BFP’s!

Tawny – Congrats on the triplets!!

SD- It’s great you guys were able to have a natural BFP! Congrats!

Tmiddle- If I read your sig correctly you are having boy/girl twins? Awesome!

Always- I registered for Dr. Brown’s bottles. A lot of my friends use them and swear by them. It creates low to no gas which means less fussy baby. I registered for the MobiCam Digital DXR audio/digital monitoring system. My DH researched it online and it seems to be better than many others. However, it is kinda expensive and not in the store. Well not the Babies R Us near me anyway. So it would be online order only.

Sunshine – You are too sweet! Thanks for following my journey! I really hope for your soon to be BFP and think of you often…. I check in on you too  Our nursery is violet and gray, furniture white. I was getting pinked out. I must say it would have been much easier to decorate if we did pink though.

Kynlee- I got a lot of baby clothes too… I was crying all day, just so happy and excited. We are down to less than 12 weeks! Ya my glucose test wasn’t bad at all. Why did you have to go twice?

Thanks guys for the welcome! Please give me some time to catch up with everyone for personals. Although it is a little sad that the board has slowed so much, it will make personals easier at least. This board was my life-line through my three other cycles and I can't imagine not hangin' out here through my pregnancy.

Always-- please don't add me to the list until I have my first u/s, since I don't want to see myself removed from the list if I have an early loss. Regardless of my outcome, this is certainly a small miracle for us, I'm gonna be recommending the home conception kit to everyone I know without clear reasons for infertility!

SD - omg! Congrats! That's so amazing! one of the reasons this board has gotten slow is because there is facebook group (private, no one on your 'regular' FB can see what is posted there), which most people find easier to use.

Anyone who wants can join! If you friend me (my last name is e_l_m_a_n), then I'll add you to the group!

Hi ladies!!! I have been stalking the board since I was pregnant last year. I know, long time to stalk and finally post! I have been a silent cheerleader for many of you and have sent many prayers your way. My husband and I tried for 7 years before getting our sweet Grace. We have one more embryo frozen and will go back for him/her in the future. It will be our one and only shot for a sibling.

Hope you don't mind me chiming in every now and then. :mrgreen: The board has slowed down a bit since last year but still a great place for info and of course, encouragement and support.

Take care,

SD-I went directly to my OB. He was pretty good and got me in for an us as soon as my beta was high enough. He gave me an us at 6, 7 and 8 weeks. I just explained my concerns and he worked with me :)

Thanks Leora for the info on the Facebook group. I'm gonna stick with the board here because I'm a bit of a identity freak when it comes to being on Facebook. I had a bad situation with an x-patient who I ended up needing a restraining order on (not sure if you remember me mentioning that) so I try to keep my Facebook activity and info available to a minimum. I'm sure it's totally fine and I'm being overly cautious but I figure better safe...I hope you'll still be dropping in because I will be forced to create a pseudo-Facebook account to stalk you there for when I can finally see you hold your take-home baby!!

ryann-- that makes sense, I have a midwife so I hope she'll give me the green light for the u/s too. I'm dying to know if the bean is growing or not! (I'm trying not to get my hopes up and just celebrate the fact that we got pregnant without ivf which is still blowing my mind)

Madame x- 12 week countdown!! So exciting!! I love the color choice, post some pics if you can.

Tawny and tmiddle--- triplets!! Exciting and overwhelming I'm sure! Are there any good support places for moms of trips? I'm sure hearing it from someone else who's been through it would be really great.

Always- I heard good things about Dr. Brown's too but there are too many parts for me. I'd use them if I had a gassy babe. My first two didn't have any issues so I used agent with my first and switched to medela for the convenience of working well with all my pump stuff.

Kynlee- how are ya? What do you have left to do for preparations?

tmiddle- I'm so excited to hear from you. We cycled together in Aug it's nice to see that your little one's are still sticking. But I can't believe they are twins.

I'm such a mess right now. DH seems to be doing great with the idea of triplets but his life isn't going to turn upside down like mine is and he doesn't quite get that. He keeps talking about me not working any more and needing to trade my CRV in for a mini van. Both things I really don't want to do lol. Work is like my whole life and I don't want to leave. I'm trying to find some kind of an suv with a third row seat so I can avoid a mini van but I don't think thats going to happen. I was getting ready for church yesturday and all I could think about was how do I get 3 babies to church by myself. DH works thirds so he's always to tired to go with me. How am I suppose to take 3 babies any where by myself? :cry:

Hey tawny-- sounds like you are having a pretty normal reaction to having your world turned upside down. I think the only way you get three triplets to church is with help. Although I've never had triplets or even twins for that matter, I do have two kids and I have tons of help. we have hired "mommy's helper" type person who helps three times a week and my in laws help me quite a bit. I work though had I had multiples I definitely would have considered a year off work. Honestly that first year is gonna fly by so if you decide not to work I think you'll be shocked by how quickly it goes. For each of mine my head was really not at work until about 9 mths. Do you have family nearby?

Hi ladies,

Hope ye all had good xmas hols!

Twany Congrats on triplets, i am (fingers crossed) nearly 19 wks pg with trlipets and totally understand how over whelming it is....new car....triplet buggy....financally.....how do you feed 3 babies on your own!! but i have got my head around it and cant wait (well i can at least another 12 wks to get them here safely). It is scary but i wouldnt change a thing, 3 yrs ago i just had my 2nd miscarriage after 6 ivfs and was told i would never have kids, it was an awful time but here i am with gorgous 2 yr old girl and please god 3 more babies on the way. Your hubby is like my jason loves to hear peoples reaction!! Be prepared to get big real fast!!! I look about 7/8 mths pg already and feel it! Cant stand for too long or walk for long and i am back to work today after 2 wks hols and my body is in for a shock i only work 3 days a week but it can be very busy/active and i am gonna take it one day at a time, if i feel not up to it i am gonna go out on sick leave, i am not risking this babies. I too also had a few episidoes of bleeding in 1st trimester and endless days of spotting, it really freaked me out and i still on nicker watch!! I was told its very common with mulptiples and mine was just cause they were snuggling in. Take care and take one day at a time, for us we waited till 12 wks to really think about having triplets as anything can happen xxx

Kynlee hows the reflux??? I am getting a little bit of it now but nothing major. Isnt it exciting getting baby clothes, jasons cousin gave us 5 boxes of boys and girls clothes ranging from tiny baby (she had a premature daugther ) to 1 yrs old, havent gone thro. them really as dont want to jinx it!!

Always I got a video monitor for Kayla and swear by it!!!! She was such a mouchy baby and constantly groaned/talked in her sleep and we just had to look at her to see she was okay and didnt need us to go into here....which is really handy at 3am in morning!!! Plus now she is 2 its hillarious watching her go to sleep, she loves her cot and sings away with her legs in the air for about 30mins before drifting off, we never have to go in to her as we can see she is ok. I also used advent bottles which were grand not bit finicky, will use them again as have that branded sterilisor already.

SD Congrats on Natural pregnancy!!!!! How fantastic is that, best of luck xxx

AFM doing well but feel 8 mths pg!!!! Sleeping is difficult as i have this pregnancy itch all over had it on Kayla but with 3 its much worse, i dont mind too much as i never had morning sickness so cant complain besides as long as they get here safely i dont care what i go thro. Scan in 2 wks time, cant wait as it ages since my last one and i really need to know how they are doing, i am feeling little kicks but not sure from who!
