If I had had a big sneeze when it happened, then I would've thought it was urine (that has happened during the pregnancy). But this was when I was sitting very calmly and reading. It made a stain about five inches in diameter. And it smelled kind of like cheese :/. Sorry for TMI.

The dr said if it were my water breaking, it wouldnt just be one gush, it would continue to trickle out.

Anyway, I just wanted to share in case something similar happens to others.

First, I'm glad things are ok for you.

Sweet, I'm sure your boys will continue to thrive.

Wells, I have a friend that named her little girl Iris...such a pretty name.

AFM, nothing new. Just have my parents here visiting so staying busy. I haven't seen them in almost three years so it's nice.

Three years?! Well, they must be so excited for you (and for themselves, the future grandparents)!

Yes, we live in separate parts of the country and we aren't very close so it's common to go long periods without seeing each other. They gave up on me having children years ago, and spend most of their travels with my brother and his family. They have been way more more supportive of IVF than I thought they would, so that is a pleasant surprise. They are really old-fashioned and often say hurtful things without thinking. I don't want to sound mean, but their visits are so stressful that every few years is more than I can handle. I love them dearly, we just live very different lifestyles.

Yeah, I know what you mean. My family is full of characters who can only be handled in small doses. I haven't told my own mother that I did IVF because 1) she has a big mouth, and 2) she might judge.

We told my MIL, who has been very supportive, but even she blabbed to people. And then, in a moment of insensitivity, suggested that we "just have sex" when we try for baby #2

I've been very lucky with how supportive my family and friends were about the IVF, although my parents didn't know until after... As I thought they'd be really pissed! As they thought at 22, I was too young for kids anyway!

Although we had IVF because we can't conceive naturally due to severe MFI. And I've been told many times by them and others, 'oh you'll have another one naturally'... Erm, I doubt it!

Mells I can totally relate to being able to take family in very small doses. My family lives far away and we only see each about once a year and that's plenty for me . I wish I hadn't told my Mom about IVF. She has said some very judgmental things about it. Surprisingly my in-laws have been so supportive about IVF and for that I am very thankful.

Sorry, I didn't read what you wrote originally Mells, thank you about the name!

She's named Iris after a song

I haven't told my mom about IVF either b/c she is judgmental and shellfish and would had said something about her needing the money we. Spent.. And she would have posted it on FB about her IVF grand baby and told everyone and start asking what's wrong... Then she would tell me she told me DH was no good b/c he cant even give me a baby, etc..she is a piece of work! But all that I wrote is a true story

Another question has anyone experienced uterus pressure or tightening? I feel pressure and tightening. Sometimes its hard... I told the clinic the other day. I'm in meds for UTI and they said maybe from that. I was thinking it was from that and some mild constipation combined but it makes me worry b/c if the ptl risk.

Mo - ugh so sorry it sounds like our Moms are similar . I always tell myself at least I know how I don't want to be as a Mother. I've felt lots of pressure and tightening too I think it's just the uterus growing and stretching. It's depends on how much I'm on my feet and my activity level. I keep track and make sure it's not consistent like contractions.
