Congratulations Ads!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy for you, and welcome little Isabel Carmela.What a beautiful name. Looking forward to hearing more, and so glad all is well.

Dakota, wow girl, you have a story to tell your lo! Glad that allended well, it must have been pretty scary at the time.

Sounds like everyone else is doing okay, and keeping busy. Dakota, I started drinking 'Mother's Milk Tea', to help increase my supply, and it seems to be helping. I am consistently pumping 8-10, oz at a time now, compared to 6 or so. I am pretty much pumping now, and only breastfeeding maybe once per day. It is still a struggle to get them latched on well, and it takes so much time for both as I haven't managed t get them feeding tandem. It really helps in the night too, so that DH can feed one or both and then I can, so we end up getting maybe a 4-5 hour stretch of sleep = wonderful!!

Is anyone else having a hard time with hormones?? I feel so sensitive to everything, and the last 3 days have been really weepy. I don't feel sad really, I don't think it's post partum depression, but just really up and down with crying for no reason and then feeling fine......
It's really annoying as I want to be bubbly and happy with the babies, we are so blessed and they are so beautiful.
At their 2 week check, Chris had put on almost 1lb, and Amy 10 oz, and are both doing great, they love riding around in their car seats too. Nights and days are still the same as they are eating around the clock - but generally every 2-3 hours and sometimes a 4 hour gap - Chris has started eating 4 oz at a time most feedings!!!!!

Hope all those lovely babies out there are growing well, and mommas and DH are doing good.

Jude- where did you get the mothers milk tea? I know what you mean about crying alot. I did that for the first week or so. I wasnt depressed, I just cried. It was weird!

Ads, CONGRATULATIONS girl!!! You finally did it! Welcome Isable Carmela!

Neffi, we use Enfamil brand formula. We order the ready-to-use bottles from this site http://www.babywuvinc.com. I've never heard of Parents Choice.

Jude, I had the baby blues a couple days after I got home with the baby. It was bad for a day....I cried for no reason all day. Then, I cried a little bit for the next two days. After that, I was fine.

I hope the Mommies are doing well with their new babies.

Hey everyone!

Well you are never going to believe this, but I am starting stims on Friday! Dh found out his insurance is going to change again so we are going to do a retreival and freeze the embryos. I got AF this morning and I have my baseline bw and u/s tomorrow morning at 8:30! RE doesnt want to transfer without seeing my uterus, so we have to wait to transfer for at least another month. Depending on DHs insurance, we could transfer in MAY!!!!! I would transfer now if it meant my chances were better and it would be covered. Jack is almost 9 weeks old, I know that sounds crazy, but without insurance coverage, who knows when Id be able to give him a sibling! Wish us LUCK!!!

mothers milk can be found at any grocery store usually in the tea asile or a gnc. Another thing that works is brewers yeast which also contains b vitamins and helps with energy

OMG Neffi!!! Good luck!! I know plently of people with kids 12-15 months apart, it doesnt seem much different than having twins I would guess except there is only one pregnancy.

I am excited for you!!!

Well, thank goodness I have managed to go the last 3 days without crying for no reason, or a reason (no sleep and 2 babies crying and only 1 of me!), so I think I am doing okay!

I got the Mother's milk from tealand.com - they were super fast with shipping, I got it the next day or the day after. I also heard that soup, and oatmeal helps - so i"m doing it all! Dont know how much it really is helping tho, as I am back to producing around 7oz per pump - so going pump for feed at the mo.

Neffi!!!! Wow that is awesome! How exciting for you - good luck, I hope all goes great with the stims. Keep us updated! Can't believe that Jack is almost 9 weeks old too. I bet you can't either. Does it feel like he has never not been here? With Amy and Christopher, it feels as though they have, or at least that they have been what I've been waiting for all my life without even knowing them yet.

Hi ladies - haven't been on in a while, trying to get my little one to calm down during the day. We're not sure if it's really bad gas from my diet, the way I'm feeding, or my incredibly hard and fast letdown, so we're working on it all. Also not sure if it's reflux, so trying to research that a bit as well. Other than that, our little Audrey is doing wonderfully and is up to 10lbs now!

How's everyone else doing?

Hey ladies--

Where is everyone????? Hope everyone is just too busy staring at their beautiful babies!!! Jack is doing well, we are still trying to figure out the formula for him, but he is so perfect! And Sunday is my ER! I trigger tonight! I have 18 follies, so lets just hope that DHs little guys can work their magic! I cant believe that I am doing this againso soon...but we will just freeze our embies so we can use them when we are ready! Hope everyone is doing well

Neffi - wonderful news on your upcoming ER, good luck tomorrow! DH doesn't want to go through anymore IVF's after the years of fertility treatment and 2 IVF's we went through, so I'm hoping the next one happens naturally :) Let us know how everything goes, I'll be thinking about you!

Hey girls--


ER went well....18 eggs, 10 mature...so we'll see what happens with fert. tomorrow. DHs boys need to do their job. We decided to go ahead with the transfer! I know it will be crazy, if it works my babies will only be 11 months apart, but I just feel like since we dont ever have alot of embies and my insurnace is probably going to be gone in the next month or so, we have to go for it otherwise who knows when I'll have $4000 for a FET or even 8-12k depending on how many times it takes??? I feel like it is no different than twins....DH and I only plan on two anyway, so we will just go through it like twins! Watch me actually get twins this time! I will let you know about the fert report tomorrow!
