Sorry Steph, but I'm hopeful the letrozole will be the key next cycle. My RE had me take letrozole during my transfer cycle, he said it has something to do with it having a positive effect on implantation, so that may be what your body needs to make things optimal.

Ok, here's a bump pic, about as good as I could get it since I'm at work lol.

Thanks and yes it does feel real, especially for dh now that my bump is becoming more noticeable and seeing our boy on the ultrasound moving and kicking around. Dh was amazed at how much the baby was moving and I wasn't feeling anything. They said my placenta is anterior, so that makes it harder to feel the baby sometimes I guess. I would feel him every once in a while, very subtle, but I'm finally starting to feel him moving a little more over the last couple of days.

So cute! Are you feeling little guy moving? It's so exciting especially with the journey you've been on. I'm hoping that is the key and if it works we know what we need if we're going to have any more then 2, haha.

Thanks Steph, starting to feel him a little more now, nothing too significant but definite movement. Yes, hopefully you can get the letrozole sooner for #3 :)

Hi ladies...
My second opinion went really well and the Dr said I’ve nothing to worry about, baby boy is not as small as I was told and all looks well on U/S. He is measuring approx 2800g (6lbs.2oz). I am SO relieved and now I can relax and enjoy my last two weeks as much as I can.
I’ve still got a bit to sort out before he arrives and today is my baby shower, very much looking forward to a fun afternoon.

Liz - cute bump!

Steph - best of luck this cycle.

Shannon - yey for making the announcement, amazing feeling isn’t it!

This week on My prenatal course we had tummy painting, quite different and fun! Mia ended up with blue lips because she couldn’t stop kissing the monkey! Pic attached :rofl:

Hi!

Aside from having a wicked stomach bug, we are doing well! I ran a 5k on Thanksgiving in 30 minutes, at 17 weeks pregnant- so I’m pretty happy with that :)

I hope all works out Steph!!

Emma and Shannon- hope all is well with you!

Liz that stinks about the stomach bug! But a 5k??????? You go girl!! I love it :D Hope things are going well, how's little John doing?

Hope EOE is doing good!

Sorry I've been away for a while, work has been busy and this carpal tunnel has been kicking my butt lately, really affecting my sleep. I seem to have it under control now somewhat with doing stretching exercises during the day. Today I have a wicked low back ache and pressure in my belly. Hoping it's just baby sitting on a nerve or something. Otherwise things are progressing along, I've been feeling a lot more movement from baby lately. I have my 1 hour glucose test at my next appt in a little over a week, should be fun lol.

Hello ladies... we have a baby :baby2:

Our little man, Jack Johannes arrived safely last Tuesday 28th November :hb:
I was scheduled for the CS on the 01.12 however I lost my mucus plug on the Monday evening and contractions and slow loss of amniotic fluid started in the early hours. Went in to hospital on Tuesday morning and they did the CS around lunch time. Jack was born at 12:48 and weighed 6lbs 6oz (3000g) which is good for 37 weeks.

We are overjoyed that he is here safe and well, he scored 10/10 on the apgar test :D

Recovery from surgery was really tough and I was also struggling with BF. Just had it confirmed that he has tongue-tie so he can’t fully latch on. My midwife has been amazing and we’ve found some positions that help minimise the pain but it’s still hurts! He can only have it corrected from 12 weeks of age, so 11 more weeks and counting!

I hope you are all well, much love Emma and Jack.

Yay!!!!!!!!!! Welcome baby Jack (love the name!!) :balloons: He really is a precious little boy and Mia looks like a happy big sis! I'm so sorry things didn't go as planned, but he's here now all healthy and looking fabulous. It will be rough, but you'll get through it :hugs:
