Hello everyone...It looks like the time has come for Gabriel to be born...FINALLY....We went to the doctor yesterday and he is almost 8 pounds and measuring 38 weeks and 5 days along...I was 38 weeks yesterday...So to not let him get to much bigger and possibly cause delivery complications the docotr is going to induce me next week...I don't have the day yet but we will know tomorrow what day they are going to induce me next week...So at some point next week I will finally see our baby boy and get to hold and kiss him...Such a long journey we have been on but was all worth it!!!!...I will let you know what date it will be on Sunday when I am at my mom's once again and able to utilize her computer...Take care....

JasJulesMom...mild nausea occasionally, frequent trips to bathroom and craving for spicy food, usually followed by tums!!!:D

I also noticed yesterday that my tummy is a bit bloated and i am also experiencing some other physical signs which may be TMI to share publicly :) Otherwise, i'm doing great..dont feel sick but i do get tired quite easily. What about you? How are you doing and when is your next visit?

Thank you so much for keeping everyone informed about me Beth...You were great to help out so much with me not having a computer up and running...However now I do have one so I can keep in touch...Gabriel is doing great...I can;t believe he turned 6 weeks on Saturday...Time sure does fly...He is beautiful and has a great disposition...He doesn't fuss much and has been sleep 4-6 hours in between bottles since we came home from the hospital...I have been blessed...

My birth story...Well I went in originally on Friday the 28th of March at 6:30 in the morning to be induced...They were so crowded that they sent all the scheduled c-sections and inductions home until 21 people could be discharged from the post partum unit and the ones in labor and delivery could be sent to the post partum unit...It was crazy...Well then at 1:30pm that same day I got a call to tell me to come back in at 3:30pm...So when we got back there they took me right in and at 4:30 they started the pitocin and I was 2cm at that point...They also broke my bag of waters and put a monitor on Gabriel's head to monitor his heartbeat because of my excess skin they were not able to get his heartbeat to register with the external monitor...Let me just say that that whole ordeal HURT!!!!...So a few hours later I got my epidural and was relaxing...My left side kept getting more and more numb because that was the side that I was laying on so he could better tolerate the contractions that I was having...So at around 6:30am they cheked me and I was 9cm and then shift change happened so they did not check me again until around 8:30am and I was 10cm and could start pushing...Well after about an hour of pushing Gabriel came out at 9:27am and weighed in at 7lbs 15ounces and was 20 1/4 inches long...He was wide awake and stayed that way until they took him to the nursery to get his first bath...Now my little man is 12lbs 2 ounces and almost 22 inches long...He loves to eat and it shows...I would love to send you all pictures...Anyone interested just drop me an email and I will send you his shutterfly album...

Well enough about me...How is everyone else...I have sooo missed you all!!!...Looking forward to catching up

Hi all -

This is my second go around for the two week wait. I had a failed cycle back in October. I had my transfer on Monday - 2 excellent quality embies! My beta is on Friday the 13th of all days. I found this site very comforting last time. Good luck to all.

Take care, Meg
