Thanks girls for your support. My beta is tomorrow at 8 am, I will probably have results by 2, but right now it is not looking good. All hpts have been negative and it is really getting to me, I am much more depressed than I thought I would be. I know I have my beautiful Ella, but I so want a sibling for her, and I so want to have another child. Really all I want to do right now is cry and sleep. I will certainly let you know if my hpts change, I am planning one for tonight and one for the morning.

CT- Stay strong. You just remember PUPO!!! You know those HPTs are ugly and they sometimes play tricks with our minds. Don't rule out the possibility of being pregnant until you have taken the actual blood test. Good luck girly and you hang in there.

Hug Ella when you feel you want to cry. I bet that will help you out alot.

Thank you for all the prayers and baby dust girls, but it was a BFN for me today. I am surprised at how hard I am taking it. I thought the blow would be softened since I am so lucky to have Ella, but I think it is actually harder. I think because I could envision how beautiful things could be in 9 months, I could picture Ella wearing that big sister t-shirt at the hospital, I know how wonderful it is to be a mom and I so wanted it all again.

I think I had a false sense of hope since it worked the first time for me, I felt like I had an advantage since my RE knew what worked with me. We are going to meet with RE tomorrow afternoon to talk about what's next, hopefully we can figure out the money and go for an FET real soon.

Thank you all for your support, it really means a lot to me.

CT_Michele -- I'm so sorry. I hope it gets better with time and I'm glad to hear that you're looking forward. I can hear how much you love motherhood in your writing and Ella is a lucky girl to have you for a Mom.

Take care and vent here all you need.

CT - I am so sorry! I imagine how upset you might be - I would feel the same way. Luckily you have the chance for a FET. HUg and kiss Ella a ton and soon you will have another!
Fingers crossed!!!

Michele,

I am sorry that it did not work this time. Take some time for you and remember you have living breathing proof that IVF works. I believe your FET will bring Ella's little brother or sister.

Awww... I am so bummed for you. There are no words that take away the sting of a BFN so just know that we are all here for you, hug your DH and beautiful daughter and take whatever time you need to regroup.

You said you were going to see the RE today. How did it go? Do you have a plan? I don't remember if you said whether you had any frosties from this cycle? I hope you get some answers. Keep us posted.

Michele: Sorry for the negative! I would feel the same way as you so I am sure it is hard. Hopefully with the frozen something will happen as I am sure you want some more little ones running around. So sorry my dear!!!

Baby 8 mos & still doesn't sleep all night! Anyone else

Post by washingtonda » Wed May 06, 2009 6:34 pm

Hey just wanted to see how many of you have babies who are 8 months or older who have never slept through the night?

We are struggling as our precious Michaela has never had a night where she hasn't awaken. Sometimes its' several times a night.

She is not hard to get back to sleep and she is not a crier just wakes up constantly. She will go back to sleep if we feed her or put the pacifyer in but she wakes alot.

She does have Acid Reflux but never seemed to be uncomfortable from it. She just use to vomit alot and now it's getting better as they said it would when she got older.

Anyone else out there going through the same or something similar. Also how are you coping. It's hard when DH and I have to get up at 5:15am for work.

michele-I wish there was some magic words to take away your saddness. Just hug and kiss Ella and take some time off for yourself. You know it can happen and I have faith that it will. ((((hugs))))

washingtonda-Gavin still wakes 2-3x a night. And it used to be a lot more (every 2-3 hours)! I have just tried sticking with a routine. He eats b/w 5:30and6.then we walk the dog for about 10minutes. Then he gets a bath and a bottle. Then bed by 7:30. He won't take a paci so when he wakes b/w 10:30-11:00 I just pat his bottom until he falls back asleep. Then he gets a bottle b/w 2 & 4. It is taxing to have a child that doesn't sleep thru the nite. But I just keep reminding myself that it will get better and I try to go to bed when he does. Tonite is an exception.


I just wanted to pass along what I consider to be a blessing. Diapers.com OMG I love that site. Price wise they are very reasonable.actually inexpensive. I had heard of it before but never looked into it. Now it's the only place I shop for Gavin. Diapers,food,bottles(I love green to grow)stair gate,wipes,toys.the best part is orders over 49.00 are shipped for free! And in 2days. My last order took 3 days so they gave me a 5.00 credit.I'm impressed with the company. If any of you give them a try use my referal code (Gman) and get a 5.00credit on your 1st order. Gotta run dh is back from visiting my dad who got put in the hospital Monday .I need to get my report on how he looks. Kiss all your babies for me!!Gavin still gets his 100 kisses a day :wink:

washingtonda: Mine were on such a routine that for awhile they still woke up 2x a night for feedings (10PM and 3AM) I dropped the 3Am and made them cry it out and it only took them 2 nights to get used to it. They just recently dropped their 10PM feed all on their own (at 8.5 months) so now they sleep 7PM till 6:45AM(ish).

I did not give them pats on the butt, no bottle, no soothing. I made them figure it out themselves. Some say this is harsh but I wanted them to be able to soothe themselves back to sleep and not need me in the middle of the night. There are still nights where I will hear one of mine wake up at 3AM. She just talks and goes back to sleep. She may just need to be put down a little earlier for her first nap if she does that.

I am a stickler to a schedule. Naps are at the same time every day and they eat at the same time each day. Mine need their schedule, but I think all twins do! I would go crazy!!

Once mine started eating a big dinner on solids they started sleeping a ton better! Adjusted mine are only 7 months old so they slept through the night at 6 months technically??

weezie: I will have to try diapers.com! Thanks for the coupon as well!
