Just a quick update today- my temp dropped a bit this morning, so I think AF is finally on her way. FF moved my O day to CD 58, but I think the original CD 53 is probably more accurate. Either way, once the witch shows up I'll be calling the RE to schedule CD 3 blood work and an HSG. Then we'll go from there.

Hello finally,

Sorry for the silence, but I've been struggling a bit lately. Things were going well, and I was overjoyed to discover the marvelous liberation that came with carrying the baby in the wrap... She sleeps AND I can go places and have a life - stores, coffee with friends, lovely... But now she's accustomed to talking her naps in the wrap and won't nap at home in her basket. She only falls asleep at night on her father or after entering a breast milk coma. I can't keep walking around the city for hours a day just so she'll nap, though I broke down this afternoon and went out in a tempest because she wouldn't sleep in the morning and was overtired and crazy irritable. The fatigue is accumulating, even though I sleep maybe 6 hours a night, but that's still broken up into 2-4 hour intervals, and of course I don't nap if she only naps on the go. That's my brief update using my phone with one hand while breastfeeding... Hopefully be back with personals (I do read!)...

Hey just a quick update. Baby is measuring super small. Growth a month and a week behind. I see fetal high risk Dr tomorrow. Probably means delivery street soon since he's not putting on much weight. I'm mentally and physically taxed right now so I can't even focus to do personals at the moment. Just please pray

Thanks ladies. Here's the latest!
My phone is broke so I only have a quick sec to update. I'm in hospital. I started having contractions last night about 730 after being to the dr and hospital to get fluids. Baby is only approx 4 lbs. ladies listen to your gut feeling! I'm telling you I knew something was the matter all of this time but everyone dismissed me. Anyways the dr thinks my placenta isn't working properly so he would do better on outside than in. They won't start my labor unless there is a problem and looks like he's in distress but they won't stop it at this point. I've been having contractions all night and I'm a 5cm. They will be checking me again soon to see if I'm in active labor or not. I got a steroid shot yesterday and they would like to get another in today. My contractions are picking up a bit this morning so I don't know. I'm just praying if he needs to come now let him come if he'd be better off. I'm getting loads of genetic testing as well to rule that stuff out. Crazy scary time but I just have to let go and trust God right now whatever the outcome. My phone broke last night so I only have Luke's to get on here so I have to be quick bc he doesn't share unless he's asleep. Lol

That's fantastic! Congratulations! You'll have to change your screen name to Momma of 5... I hope the rest of your hospital stay (and his) goes well and that everyone recovers nicely!

Hello mommas,

How you you both feeling these days?

Court- how are you and the little one? I hope you both are thriving and continuing to heal! What did you name your little boy? Do you know how much longer you'll be in the NICU? Please update when you are able. Hugs.

Peaks- I'm sorry that Salomé is giving you so much trouble! I hope she finds a consistent sleep schedule soon for you. I'm sure it's hard at times, but just remember that she is the miracle you've been praying for and waiting for for a long time. You'll figure things out, I'm sure of it! Hugs.

AFM- My cycle finally started on Saturday. I'm not sure I've ever been that excited to see the witch. The flow has been really good, too. It was heavy yesterday and all bright red blood. A definite improvement. I went in today for my cycle day 3 blood work. I should know the results by tomorrow. They also did an antral follicle count. They found two follicles on one ovary and three on another. This is still considered low, but it's significantly better than last time they looked. Last time I only had one follicle total--one ovary was completely empty. They're running a repeat of my AMH today as well. I'm hoping to see some higher numbers. My acupuncturist is convinced that this can be reversed--that it's due to external factors (like adrenal fatigue) rather than age. So far, it's looking like she's right. If my FSH numbers come back low (which is what we want) I'll feel a lot better. The volume of one ovary was also looking bigger, which the doc said was good, too, but I already had one follicles growing, which it shouldn't be this early on in my cycle. I guess I'll take what I can get.

I've also been reading "The Women Code" by Alissa Vitti. It's all about what foods to eat during each phase of your cycle to keep your hormones and endocrine system humming along smoothly. I've started to implement some of the things and I'm feeling better already. So far, I've been trying to eat every three and a half hours to keep my blood sugar stable, which minimizes the strain on the adrenals (which is a place I've had trouble with) and I've started adding some of the food suggestions to my diet. It certainly falls into the well-it-certainly-can't-hurt category. :)

Take care! I hope to hear from both of you soon!

Becky I just popped in super quick abs I just wanted quick ly to say how excited I am to hear your good news! I Only have a few seconds but I knew your tests would be better. That one month was just one of those whacky messed up times and that influenced your numbers greatly. I think you are so close to getting pregnant :) can't wait for more news.

Benjamin Wyatt is his name. Hrs doing great but this is seriously the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Just because he looks normal but we don't know till all tests comes back if it is. He seriously sleeps non stop which worries me. I see his eyes like only 30 min a day. He finally starred to gain a little last night. 4 grams to be exact! Not much but it's in right direction. He had brain scan and fetal heart echo today. Brain was normal. We haven't heard about echo yet. We live at the hospital at the moment. I haven't seen my other kids in days. It's sad. I miss everyone. I had an emotional meltdown in the nicu today. I guess it's common fir nicu parents. Lol ok gotta run keep the prayers coming,!
