The magnesium helped, and he seems to be hanging in there. My gyno predicts he'll arrive early, but she also predicted that for Kian, and he was right on time. So we'll see! Anyway, I'm at the safe point of 37 weeks, so he can really come anytime and his lungs will be ready for the world. Just enjoying these last few weeks with my only child as an only child :P

How are things with you Keep? How are you holding up? Do you think you will give IVF a try again?

Everyone else? How are you?? We need more action on this thread! haha

Hello All!

So a little late here, but Sam David has arrived! He was born last week, May 10, right on his due date. 3860g, 57 cm.
Kian is so good with his little brother, constantly giving kisses and wanting to share his toys. He always comes and gets me when Sam is crying. It's really cute.
Having big troubles with nursing though. He won't latch properly no matter how many times I try to correct. So I have cracked and bleeding nipples that are so sore. I dread nursing :( I just hope it gets better over time. Might have to look into nipple shields if it doesn't improve soon.

How is everyone doing??

Kendra he is gorgeous!! Congratulations!! I had the same issue with Ciaran for the first week, to the point that I would sob while nursing because it hurt so much. It did get better though, and hopefully his latch will improve for you soon!

Been quiet here - hope everyone is well!

So at Sam's check-up today, it turns out he has thrush in his mouth and I have it on my nipples. So on top of cracked bleeding nipples due to poor latch, I have an infection that makes it even more painful. I'm sure it's not comfortable for him either. So we were prescribed an anti-fungal cream - him for his mouth, and me for my nipples. But now that I know it's thrush, I've stopped using lanolin (which encourages its growth) and my nipples are killing constantly. Gah! I hope this thrush won't take long to heal, and then I can focus on the latch.

Kendra, congrats! He is so beautiful! I'm glad that Kian seems to be adjusting well. But super sorry for the latch and thrush problems. Makes me hurt just thinking about it! :( I hope it improves for you both soon!

Congratulations again...you did good momma.

Hope everyone else is doing well. :hi: I am still popping in to read sometimes but please forgive my lack of posts lately. I have no excuses!! I think of you all and am rooting for each and every one!

Lindsey, congrats on your big bundle of joy! He sounds like such a sweet one and I bet Fiona just adores being a big sis. :hb:

Keep - Do you have any idea when you'll be trying IVF again?

Lindsey - when is your last exam?

EOE - how are you all??

I broke down and bought nipple shields. It will be hard to wean him off them down the road (I had them for Kian too), but I really need to heal first, or it's not going to be enjoyable for either of us!

I wish Fi cuddled with Ciaran like that, but he is only a couple pounds (about a kilo) lighter than her and already in 12 mo clothes! She is also always trying to touch his eyes, don't know what the deal is with that! Super sweet pic though, I love it! The thrush issue sounds so awful though! I hope it improves quickly.

Next appointments are in a few weeks for Fiona's 18 mo and Ciaran's 4 mo check ups. Time flies!!

Hope everyone is well! :grouphug:

Lindsey - Would love to see a pic of the two of them together if you have one! :)

The cream cleared the thrush away, and I've been using nipple shields for about a week, and they are looking much better! However, in the meantime, I developed mastitis in my right breast, so went from nipple pain to breast pain. :doh: Hopefully someday down the road I will have NOTHING, and nursing can again be relaxing and pain-free! :)

Where is everyone these days?? Also, haven't heard from Sept at all since she was due to deliver. If you are still popping in here Sept, let us know how things are going, even if you just have time for a sentence or two, want to know you are ok!
