I am over hear thinking holy hell, I would not want to be split all the way down omg that had to be awful! Yeah my labia tore, but healed quick and bd was only painful the first couple of times (we waited only the recommended 6 weeks). I don’t ever want a csection bc I hear the healing is so much longer, also I am a bleeder! I would be too scared to be cut like that. And would I feel the cut if the epi didn’t work again and I had to have a csection, or would they numb another way? I don’t know how that all works.

Loz was scheduled to have baby today, right?

Faith, yay for O! Fingers crossed!

Hi everyone
Meet Connor, born 6.29pm on 2/2. He came out face up! Ouch. A healthy 3.476kg (I think 7lbs 11oz).
I got the epi after 9 hours...total lifesaver for the last 6!
We are in love!
Hope you're all well x

Hello ladies. On Friday I had a long page of personals, but it wouldn't post, darn it. I'm too tired to do them tonight. I wanted to log in and let everyone know that I'm still around. And to congratulate Whoz on her bfp. Then I see Connor and I want to tell Loz how beautiful he is. Afm I had a 35 day cycle last month and believe I had a chemical. Was just 3 days from testing when af reared her ugly head. I had just got the flu as well so it double sucked. Had it for two weeks which kept me off here. But I'm happy to be in the tww again. That is all except for hugs, baby dust, and sticky vibes to us all.

Loz: Awwwwwww...hello Connor!! Welcome!! :happyforyou: (handsome lil guy)

Angela: Aw, I'm so sorry. I hope your next cycle is a sticky bean. Keep us posted.

Fly: I still get spasms from hell in my bum. BUT I'm took chicken to get my stomach open. Like you, I have bleeding/healing issures. Some thing with thrombosis??? Eh, I forget the word but I'd like to avoid the stomach part and weather some more stitches. At least this time if I every get preggo again I'll know to keep it stretched and moisturized or SOMETHING..lol

Dana: Csection has been around for so long. I'm not against it just don't want to do one...lol. I think initially they were for emergencies only but now moms are electing to do c section over vaginal birth. I think the only time I'd lean that way is if I was having multiples. I think pushing would stress babies out. So better to go in and get them.

Faith,Fly I completely understand your views on csection,for me is the easy way out,the thought of having to push another baby from my vagina or having the doctors/nurses hands up in my vagina to check progress is making me very,very,very uncomfortable,probably trauma from the loss of my boys.
I rather have an easy delivery and a cut than to go trough all of that again.

Fly: Sorry about bfns. Sensitive tests drive me crazy every cycle. I haven't seen a real no doubt about it bfp since 2009 on an old style frer for myself. And it was seriously squinter at 10dpo evening urine. FX 10dp gives you some thing more to look at :hugs:

HI EOE HUGS

AFM: I'm 4dpo and my scan to check on my ovaries went well. Tech said I ovulated 'alot' and that my lining is 14mm. My doc also said he thinks its best I see an RE already because of my age. He doesn't want me waiting any longer because it is a race against the clock now. The scan tech told me of a fantastic RE to see when we are ready to go that route. She said she use to want to have another as well when she was 38 and after a year of doing everything (REs and all) they decided to stop trying and be happy with the one kiddo they already have who is 13 now. And she is very happy but understands our desire to get pregnant all to well. She was so sweet and was telling me EVERYTHING I asked about on the screen. Best scan/tech ever. She saw all the cysts formed from ovulation and said that if she didn't see any functional cysts bigger than a certain cm she would tell the doc i'm ok to do more clomid. She found only two and they weren't that big. But said I defintely Od Alot! I was was given the ok to do two more cycles of clomid.

The doctor said there may be an issue with the sperm getting to the egg as well as egg quality at this point. I promised him I'd see an RE in August if not pregnant by then.

I'm 50/50 on feeling hopeful.

Ok, my ramble is done. HUGS

Danaa: Thank you. I can't even close my mouth I'm in shock at the possibility of having a real chance. Question, for you IVF and FETS, did you doc require you have a triple lining for uterus?

Hi everyone...sorry I have been MIA.

Fly: Sorry about BFN. But 9 dpo is still early. Your bobble head comment made me ROFL. Hugs to Remi.Your failed epidural sounds really bad. Glad you are doing well though.

Faith: I am excited for you and your plan. Your lining sounds awesome for this phase of the cycle. And I am keeping all the fingers crossed that you got one of those super eggs.

Star: Hoping you are doing great..

Loz: My o My! What a handsome young lad we have here. Hi Connor. And welcome to the world. I hope he is being a good boy to mommy.

Danaa: I am probably gonna be with you on c section. I think if I ever have the chance, I am going to be s**t scared of the chances of a normal delivery. And all the vagina and labia tearing and epidurals, ouch, is supporting my chickening out!

Whoz: How are you feeling?? When do you go for your next scan??

Courtney, Wish, Andi: Hello...

AFM, nothing much happening here except some family functions and wedding which has kept me busy. As far as ttc is concerned, we are taking a break from the thought of ttc. We will go for FET again in the fall season. Till then, focus on healthy me.
