Froggy very sweet pic! I'm glad the bf-ing is going so well for you and ellie. Well RQ for two girls that started out exactly the same weight we now have one that's bigger too. Piper weighs 15.4 and Teagan's at 14.5 pounds. Teagan is a wee bit shorter too. 3 pounds is quite a difference but as ling as their healthy that's the main thing. I'm on a few different twin fb groups anc there are plenty of teins of all different heights & sizes. Just goes to show you that we're all very different!
Fern that's very exciting news about the fs in Sept. I wish you good luck with your next round.

The twins don't seem to kerp a certain nap time like MacKinley did as a baby. It kills me because their up for a while and then dosn for .5 hour-44 min. I need all three to go down for 2-3 hours so that I csn rest. I'm feeling particularly tired today. The girls are both rolling from back to front and back again. They're all over the living room floor as soon as I walk out. We brought the exerscaucer from grandmas house and they love it. Next up we'll get the jolly jumper out. The only thing about these toys and the baby swing is MacKinley likes to play in them too. The exerscaucer can accommodate but I think she'd bend the frame on the jolly jumper. We'll maybe put her teddy flippity flop in it and get him jumping, see if that will do.

Hi all
So happy to see you are all doing well!
Well my news: I'm currently on week 2 of bcp. When AF shows, I need to wait 1month or however long it takes for a natural cycle, then I'm doing FET. Told the dr I'm definitely only planning on a single embryo transfer, the other embryo will be donated to scientific research. My husband gets no say in the matter because.... I asked for a divorce today.
He is extremely aggressive and a total asshole who spends no time with his kid. The "great dad" turned out to be a sham.

Fern I wish you the best of luck with your fet and divorce. People don't change do they? It's so disheartening to see that glimmer of hope that they'll try because after all, you're not asking for much are you? Just stay focussed on the positive, with everything you write I don't doubt that this will come naturally for you! And dumping the angry, aggressive dead weight will be uplifting and free you up to have better people enter your life.

Edit: just be careful about your fet, what if your husband opposes you using the embryo? Even in Czech republic they wouldn't give me my donor emby fet without my husband signing the paperwork and giving a copy of his passport (he didn't even come for the trip). Some clinics still require that you be married and both parties consenting. If this is what you want make sure you get your ducks in a row with your clinic so your husband doesn't mess things up for you xx

Hi ladies! Hope everyone is well.

We made it to Florida and we are in our new home. It has been absolutely beautiful here the past few days and I got to enjoy my new pool last night. Its going to take a while to get settled but we will get there.

Claire and Oliver are doing great. They are both rolling over and starting to sit up on their own. They can't get in the sitting positon on their own but if you get them there they are maintain for a min or more. They are learning to try out the tripod position. With support they can sit up great. We got them highchairs (which they LOVE) this week after we moved and just started some rice cereal today. We tried before but they just were not ready. The tongue thrust reflex was there and no interest. Today they both did good and we are going to work on introducing them to the concept of food.

Claire's two bottom teeth ruptured through this past weekend and she did great. Not too much fussiness. We were lucky that we didn't experience much of a 5 month sleep regression. They sometimes can make a whole night (8pm to 6:30am) without a peep and other nights they wake us up a time to two and we have to go in their room and soothe them. Claire is making a lot of different sounds right now, but Oliver isn't experimenting with sounds that much. He is more quiet or crying type. Claire is THE BEST baby. She only cries when she is hungry or tired. However, she routinely fights sleep! Other than that she is an absolute pleasure. So happy and smiling all the time. Oliver is a little bit more needy but still a great baby. We thank god everyday for our many blessings!

Fern, best of luck with you FET. I couldn't imagine going for another baby right now but I have my hands full with two. It is so much fun watching them grow that I might be tempted to have another in the future. Sorry to hear about hubby but I think you might be better off. It has been a rough go from the sounds of it for a while.

Fern I'm excited to follow your FET journey!!! Sorry about the divorce but as the others have said, it's probably for the best. I'm curious how the laws there are for the FET? Like 2have said, here in the US our embryos are both of our property and can only be used if both sign the proper paperwork.

Glad the move went well and the babies are doing so good rq!

- Gage will be five months old tomorrow! The time flys! He loves his jumparoo, we got the rainforest one that makes monkey and elephant noises and he goes crazy in that thing. He is trying his hardest to scoot somewhere when he is on his tummy, but he hasn't figured it out yet and it makes him so mad lol. He can roll from back to belly and belly to back but mostly just hangs out side to side just enough to grab whatever toy is in reach. His sleeping went to complete crap right at four months and I bought him the merlins magic sleep suit. It definitely helped but his sleep still sucked! I decided to go ahead and try without the suit again since he can't hardly move in it and he is liking to roll from side to side in his sleep, and I'm hoping I'm not jinxing myself right now but the last two nights have been incredible! He still wakes to eat but goes right back to sleep! He is wearing 9 months clothes and I'm about to put him in size four diapers because he is a monster baby! He took his first airplane ride at the beginning of the month and did really really good both going to Texas and coming back. My family LOVED him and most of his days were spent being passed around from person to person so he was exhausted every night and slept amazing while we were there. I had weaned him from the breast shield which we used because his tongue tie had caused his latch to make my nipples bleed and crack. He was completely weaned by the end of may but I still couldn't get his latch right. He ended up causing me excruciating pain and I would just holler and cry when he would get on to bf. so I sadly had to stop nursing him. I cried. He still roots for my boob. He gets bottles of breast milk but I have a hard time keeping up with him with just pumping so he get formula too. I will just combi feed him for as long as I can. We have been doing it for about two weeks now and so far it's going good. I did get my first af, and it sucks. It has been 14 months without one. It also caused a dip in my supply, but it's on it's way back up. Overall he is just the happiest funniest baby. He is constantly looking around for something that makes him laugh. Whether it be us or the dogs or even himself jumping around, he is a very silly boy and I think he will be a clown! He has been on oatmeal cereal and rice cereal for a month now and I have been introducing different purées. He has had blueberries, peaches, apples, bananas, and peas.

Froggy - how sweet. Gage sounds like a fun baby and what a big boy! Claire is like that. She is a big girl, but Oliver is still a tiny boy.

We were going to do solids at 4.5 months because the doc said we could introduce rice cereal. Oliver was ready, but Claire wasn't. Then we got busy with the move so we didn't attempt very much. Earlier this week we did cereal again and they are both ready now. Oliver was actually grabbing the spoon and feeding himself. It was the cutest. I read up and I think we are going to skip cereal and start pureed foods. Maybe start with a banana today and see how they do. I read that babies probable don't prefer the bland cereal and it is ok to start with pureed foods. I think that is Claire's problem. She always gets this look like "what nasty pasty stuff are you putting in my mouth". But if someone feeds her from their plate like mashed potatoes on a finger she doesn't get that same look.

Hubby and I are enjoying Florida. I was able to work from home with my current job. How lucky is that!! It is a slight adjustment, but honestly not much different than being in the office. I'm good at staying busy and keeping on task so that isn't a challenge. I also have a dedicated room in the house as an office so that helps too. And what's not to love about taking a lunch break and seeing my husband and kissing two babies! I have a beautiful pool and palm tree view out of my window. It is an absolute beautiful morning here today and I'm enjoying all the sunshine. I used to work in a cubicle in the office with no natural sunlight so its an upgrade

Life sounds so perfect for you right now rq!! I'm so glad that everything is working out in your favor!! Over the weekend I made a ton of purées to freeze so that it takes less time to prepare them. I just boiled things that needs boiling and threw them in the blender with a little water and poured them into ice cube trays. Each cube is 1oz so I can give him two cubes each feeding. I also like that I can mix any two together to make my own flavors for him. I just popped out the food cubes and labeled them in bags

Froggy, that is what I plan to do. Getting store bought stuff is expensive and I don't like the thought of additives. It is easy to make at home so I will prepare some next month. I have to travel back to Indiana for work for a week (yuck!) so I will have to plan around that. Gage is so cute and I love his dark hair. Oliver is still bald and I wonder when he is going to get hair!

Hi ladies I thought I'd posted a long post on the weekend but guess it didn't go through.

So glad to hear everyone's doing well and that all the babies are thriving. They're all getting so big! Rolling and eating and teething. G is just munching everything. I even made him spinach puree which he will try after I'm done with our 3 day kale and carrot puree test run (which is going great). He can sit up a bit and is getting better at rolling.

So far we're definitely going forward with the FET (don't want to talk about DH situation if you don't mind) and I'm excited but TERRIFIED at the same time. If my son has a sibling I want them to be close together in age and get the baby stuff over and done. But a small part of my mind feels like I'll be relieved if the FET doesn't work lol. The plan is:
10 more bc pills, then AF, then wait for 1 normal cycle. As soon as AF shows up again, I need to phone in day 1 and start with the meds to do FET that cycle. Sh*t!! So it could be anywhere from 6 weeks from now!
