Hi girls!!! Congratulations Julie!!! I am so happy for you!
I can't believe how fast all our little ones are growing! It's hard to believe the boys are 14 mos already!
I need to update my pic.
Oy - potty training - I don't even want to think about it yet...
:wavehello: I've been an awful grad member. Sorry! Life has been wonderful for us. Mina is such a joy that I still cry sometimes when I'm snuggling with her because I'm so grateful to have her in my life. I'm excited and nervous about sharing my time with her little sister when she comes in the next 5-9 weeks. I really thought we'd be in the midst of cycling for a sibling right now, but I guess there were other plans. :shock: Good luck to those of you that are trying again!
Andrea - I know what you mean, sometimes when I am holding Deacon or talking to him I just start to cry. I am still amazed that I have this perfect little human and he is all mine.
I posted this on the pg mummies thread too.... sorry for cross posting, just wanted everyone to know! :D
Hi all, thought you might like an update!
We are back from our big u/s and have a healthy baby BOY! I've had so many scares throughout this pregnancy and am still labeled 'high-risk miscarriage'. Today was all good news though! Baby boy measuring a few of days ahead, perfect in every way. Placenta is high and well out of the way, cervix is tight shut.
excuse the fuzziness, they are photos of photos!
Sophia came to the scan and was so well behaved. She kept saying "Mummy, baby monkey TV". She thought that the baby looks like a monkey!
Today is a happy day
Congrats Em! Boys are fun - congrats on your son. Any name ideas?
We have a few, but nothing that jumps out at us just yet! We will be using FIL's name as a middle name.
Congrats, Em! I'm glad Sophia is excited about the baby monkey. :lol:
Andrea - I can't believe you are less than a month away!!!
Wow...It has been literally about 6 months since Ive even logged onto PO. Congrats Em and I am glad everything is going well. Andrea, not too much longer!!
As for us, Isaac is doing great and pretty much caught up to "normal" 18 month olds. Still a little small, especially when I look at Jens pictures of Deacon! Isaac is 23 lbs right now. And yes, I get teary eyed sometimes with him too. Tentatively talking about an FET sometime this year.
My family life has been a little more stressful. My mom was diagnosed with Stage 2 Ovarian Cancer last summer. She finished chemo in Nov. and goes back Monday for CT scan and blood work to see if anything is left. Very scared about that. I think thats about all. I will have to try to remember to check here more.
Update: Things didn't go so well with my mom's tests. They found 5 new spots of cancer that are non-operable. She will start a trial treatment next week to try to shrink the tumors. This might move up our plans for an FET.
I just called the lab b/c I was concerned about not getting a bill yet for my frozen embryos. I keep worrying that they destroyed them or something. Anyhow, I talked to the dr in the lab (they are fine) and he told me I have 2 straws left, 2 embryos in each :eek: I was told when I did my transfer 2 years ago that we only had 3 embryos left. He said one straw didn't look good and the other just looked ok.
Even though we don't plan to transfer anytime soon, I feel so emotional. Why didn't I know there were 4? This changes our transfer plans. What if they were to all work? We don't want to destroy them or put them up for adoption, they are our children. I dunno - it may seems silly, but its really freaked me out. (not in a good or bad way)
