    So, Riley turned 7 months this past week. It's truly unbelievable how fast they grow! It seems like a lifetime ago that we were struggling to get pg, and at the same time, it seems like Riley was born just yesterday! Here's a few pics of Riley from our neighborhood Fourth of July parade.

    Christi - he is so cute! Its sad how fast time goes. When TTC time drags by but once your LO is here is flies. Its kind of cruel.

    realized i never posted about Olivia here....

    After an eventful pregnancy, had Olivia Evelyn Teodora July 16th. She was 9lbs 10oz and 20in. She unfort. had to stay in nicu for a week - sugar levels were super low (symptom from my gest. diabetes) and she got jaundice and was dehydrated......

    She's doing great now though and i just can't believe she's here. It was a year ago this week that the 1st IVF didn't work out.......and here we are with a little miracle.
    I'll have to load a new pic...but that's one of her newborn pics in my siggy

    Our little boy has arrived...a little early. We did the embryo transfer back on Easter Sunday and his EDD was Jan 10, 2012. After a rather uneventful pregnancy, I was surprised to find out my BP was elevated at my 36 week appt. The next day I found out blood labs showed elevated liver enzymes and they were concerned I was showing symptoms of HELLP syndrome though to be honest I felt fine despite the regular 3rd trimester discomforts. I was admitted to the hospital that very day and about 5 hours after being admitted he made his arrival via a pain med free, vaginal delivery on Dec 15, 2011. Needless to say we were in shock those initial days & somewhat overwelmed b/c we had not organized the house yet & I was still recovering healthwise. They were a little concerned that hewas losing weight (he started out at 6lb 11oz) but now he is feeding like a champ and putting on weight though he still seems tiny compared to other newborns. We are settling in well at home and look forward to the holidays with our surprise present.

    Christina...Thanks for updating over here. I've been following you on your lodge. I'm so happy that you have a healthy baby boy despite him being a little early. Is name is beautiful. What a neat way to honor your father. Glad you delivered him before HELLP syndrome became an issue. I've known someone that had it and she was very sick.

    cross posted on other boards:

    Kara Elliot
    Dec 27th, 8:36 am
    7lb 1 oz
    20.5 in
    apgars were 8, 9

    On Tuesday, Dec 27th we were scheduled for a csection at 8:30 am. I got to the hospital at 7:15 and by 8:36 Kara was born. I had been so nervous all morning for some reason, like scared to death of the surgery. That's pretty out of character of me but I couldn't shake it. At one point right when the doctor had walked in I started saying "I'm scared, please give me something, I'm really to scared to do this!" and the anesthesiologist said "scared of what, they have already started and she will be here in a minute". After that for some reason I was completely calm and didn't mind the rest of the procedure. They let Justin stand up and video the actual delivery so that was really cool. As soon as she was out the nurse said "do you have big babies? she is big" but then they showed her to me and all I could think was how tiny she was. Then the doctors and nurses were all commenting about something on her face. They had Jus come over and look and it was a gold piece of glitter. So weird! They said they have never seen anything like that before. Anyhow, they finished up my surgery and we went to recover for a few hours. Once I had been in there for an hour they allowed Deacon to come back and see us. He walked in and was so excited that Sister was finally here. He was thrilled to give her a hug and a kiss. Then he said 'come on daddy, let's go get mimi (my mom) so she can see her' LOL.

    After I finished the required time we were moved to a room. The nurses was great and loved Deacon, so they let him push her to my room all by himself (with Jus' supervision). As soon we we settled in the grandparents came in to meet her. I was pretty sick all day from the spinal and then exhausted from the anti-nausea meds. Justin stayed with me he first two nights and then my MIL stayed the last night. We got home yesterday (Friday).

    Since Kara was born I have literally been on cloud 9. I never put her down and I miss her when someone else holds her for too long. I even held her to sleep every night in the hospital. She is such a good baby but man does she have her days and nights confused. She sleeps the entire day and is wide awake from 11p to 7a. I spend my nights trying to stay away and mu days trying to catch up on sleep. But right now I don't mind too much. I am going to try to work on reversing her days and nights this week while I have Justin home to help me with Deacon. Jus has been amazing with D this week. He is playing with him and taking care of everything for him so I can focus on me and Kara. Its been much easier than I ever expected but I know its only because Jus has been so helpful.

    Kara lost 9% of her body weight in the hospital and the nurses were really concerned. The pedi said she wasn't as worried since I'm a BTDT mom and she remembers how chubby Deacon got when I was BFing him. She asked me to nurse every 2 hours between now and our appt on Tuesday just to help her gain a little. However, had Kara been my first baby we would still be in the hospital. She was down to 6lb 6 oz when we left and she is TEENY TINY! She is so small and its the first thing everyone comments on when they see her. Even her features are tiny.

    Anyhow, that's what we have been up to - exhausted days, tons of visitors around the clock and adjusting to being a family of 4. Its been amazing but it leaves no time for me to do anything else right night. I'm not sure when I will be back on the boards regularly but I will try to get on and lurk. I'm on FB since its easy to do on my phone while nursing or pumping. I'm sure you have seen her pictures on FB. I'll try to get some online soon or at least more on FB.
