Monica - August 8


Hi Ladies,

How is everyone? I only have about 2 minutes to post this message, so I will try to make this quick.
We just came back from our ultrasound appointment, and we found out that our baby IS A BOY!!!!!! Yaaaayy!!
The doctor was 100% positive that it was a boy & my husband is absolutely elated right now. The baby will be named Joseph III after his daddy, and my due date has been pushed up to December the 24th....Praise God!

I will be able to write a little more on tomorrow ladies.....

Luv To Everyone!
Monica :)

Hey Honey, I am doing fine. How are you doing and feeling? You are almost at that 12 week mark. How exciting!

Monica, a boy that is so great. I love hearing these things now!!! Time has flown.

I have to make this quick. I am heading to Eugene ( a bigger city) for my next perinatologist appointment. I will give you an update later.

Nancy, how are you doing?

Lili, I think we all say prayers and send baby dust out to everyone still trying to get pregnant. It is one of the most difficult processes but one that certainly must make us appreciate when we are pregnant a lot more.

Take Care,
Heather

Hi Ladies, I just read this and it seems true for all of us. Lili, I hope you are still reading our site. This is what I was trying to say in my previous message. Even though we in the message line have been blessed with pregnancy I don't believe any of us will ever forget the pain and difficulty it took to get here and sometimes even being here.

Thoughts on Becoming a Mother:

There are women that become mothers without effort, without thought, without patience or loss and though they are good mothers and love their children, I know that I will be better.

I will be better not because of genetics, or money or that I have read more books but because I have struggled and toiled for this child.
I have longed and waited. I have cried and prayed.
I have endured and planned over and over again.

Like most things in life, the people who truly have appreciation are those who have struggled to attain their dreams.
I will notice everything about my child.
I will take time to watch my child sleep, explore and discover. I will marvel at this miracle every day for the rest of my life.

I will be happy when I wake in the middle of the night to the sound of my child, knowing that I can comfort, hold and feed him and that I am not waking to take another temperature, pop another pill, take another shot or cry tears of a broken dream. My dream will be crying for me.

I count myself lucky in this sense; that God has given me this insight, this special vision with which I will look upon my child that my friends will not see.

Whether I parent a child I actually give birth to or a child that God leads me to, I will not be careless with my love.

I will be a better mother for all that I have endured. I am a better wife, a better aunt, a better daughter, neighbor, friend and sister because I have known pain.

I know disillusionment as I have been betrayed by my own body. I have been tried by fire and hell many never face, yet given time, I stood tall.

I have prevailed.
I have succeeded.
I have won.

So now, when others hurt around me, I do not run from their pain in order to save myself discomfort. I see it, mourn it, and join them in theirs.

I listen.

And even though I cannot make it better, I can make it less lonely. I have learned the immense power of another hand holding tight to mine, of other eyes that moisten as they learn to accept the harsh truth and when life is beyond hard. I have learned a compassion that only comes with walking in those shoes.

I have learned to appreciate life.

Yes I will be a wonderful mother.

Good morning Ladies -

I am wondering if any of you could help me out.

Yesterday at 11dpo I received the news that I am pg. My hcg was at 98. That number seemed really high to me but the re's office didn't seem concerned. Can any of you tell me if you heard of a number being that high so early.

I appreciate any advice you can give.

Thanks,
Liz

 

Honey - August 9

Liz,

First I want to say that you should change your ticker! LOL

And second I don't think any of us would give you asuring info like your doctor would. I think you can even call the doctors office any time of day they are open and ask the nurse questions.

A very big CONGRATS to you though! :)

God Bless!

~Honey~

lili246,

Thanks and I'm sending as much babay dust as my little one can make! :)




Sorry guys for the individual posts. I just had more to say after the first one and then I thought I was done after the second one and here is the third one! LOL

~Honey~

 

liz - August 9

Thanks Honey - Congrats to you as well!

I will work on that ticker change. haha

Yeah, I asked my nurse yesterday but she said they are not concerned at all. My re even made the comment that I don't waste any time. I had 2 good size follicles and 1 a tad smaller so all we can do is wait and see if this is a sign of multiples.

I was not sure what the normal so to say was for hcg levels and just thought I would ask.

Thanks,
Liz

Liz,
Congratulations and welcome to the Mommy board! I've heard high hcg levels could be a sign of multiples, I think a way to tell is how they change over the days or something like that...I could be wrong I tried not to read to deep into mine this time.

To Any previous preg ladies... Is this normal I am aggravated! I went to the doctor this morning only to find out that I am not even 1 frickin cent dilated at all whatsoever, I am thinning out, but I am not even dilated!!!!!!!!errrrghhhh all these painful bh contractions and no progress......NOTHING! Wow! I am so uncomfortable I hope he doesn't come late.....:(

Amanda,
Don't worry, your baby knows when it will be time!!

Honey,
Thanks for the Baby Dust!

Heather,
Thanks for that poem, I really agree with it. There are some womens that get pregnant with no effort and other like me have to put all that effort and do all my best, but I will keep trying and have the faith. That God knows when it will be my turn.

Thank You Ladies!!

Amanda Ivey - August 10

I am just hoping and praying that I don't have to be artificially induced or cut, because someone told me that he had to be out by 42 weeks and that usually most women are dilated around my time atleast 1 or 2 centimeters so I am starting to get worried a little I have a doctors appt Wed so I guess we'll see then...Although he didn't seem like it was a big deal that I wasn't he was just like "hahahha your not even dilated at all" He thought it was funny and told me to walk, guess the 2 hours that I do every other day and all the housework I do daily isn't counting for crap. Yes 2 hours and I bring my bottled water. DH is back until the 24th so let's just hope he gets to see his 1st born arrive into the world.

 

lili246 - August 10

Amanda,
That is true, walk alot I mean ALOT! On my first pregnancy I did alot of walking that when I was at the hospital I had my son very fast that the nurse was shock because I dilated from 2 to 9 in no time. And that was because of all that walking I did. OMG I would get to the end of the day and I really felt tired but it was worth it, big time.
The best of Luck, I just wish I get pregnant soon!

-Lili
