Four! Congratulations!!!! Very happy for you!

Fluffy and Lucy, hope announcing went well!

Nita, sounds like you have a big healthy girl! Shes beautiful! Iím a bit jealous Liezl smiles! Ford still doesnít and heís nearly 5 weeks...but being a preemie he may reach some milestones late...

Sarah, your little guy has grown so well! Heís gorgeous!!!! How are you feeling now?

As for me, Iíve healed up well. My hubby went right back to his 80 hr weeks so being alone with the 4 and 2 year old and the new baby has been challenging. Doing dinner, bath, bed alone is tough. Very exhausted, but hubby let me sleep in today...waking me to feed baby and then back to sleep. Much needed!

Its really good seeing you back here Four! I am so glad things are working out for you in alaska, I remember you being stressed about the move.

I dont know how you cope with 3 kids on your own ttc, my DH works 72hour weeks, and its just me an baby.. I barely get time for dishes, food, etc. Im sure Ford is going to sneak in a smile very soon.

Nita, haha I was too tired to do anything for weeks. I don’t even know where September went. I kind of remember October but now it’s November and I don’t know how that happened haha. Yay it sounds like she’s growing well! Good stuff with the boob milk! I think William has gotten bigger overnight haha. I picked him up this morning and it felt like he’d doubled in size haha. So cute! The smiles are the best!

Four! Of course we remember! That is so unbelievably exciting!! Yay!! I bet you can’t wait to find out how far along you are. And that’s pretty typical about buying a 3bedroom house just before finding out haha! I’m sure you will make it work. Please hang around, and thank you!

Ttc, it’s good to hear from you. Thanks, he has grown lots! He is changing so much. Today he tried to roll over but I put him back on his back haha I’m not ready for that (and also my DH is away so I’ll try and stall that milestone. The first few weeks are so tough, you’re amazing doing it with 2 others and a premmie, let alone your DH going back to work 80 hours a week! I wouldn’t have coped haha. I’m doing ok, still sore and waiting for a scan and another appointment to see if I need surgery.

Also, I can’t remember if I said but William has been having tummy. Turns out he has a milk protein allergy. So I can’t eat any dairy. How do I survive without chocolate? Haha. Life just seems to be a gift that keeps on giving!

Well I went in to a midwife today that we may use for this pregnancy. She said my uterus felt like I was about 8 weeks so she decided to listen with a Doppler but then couldn't find a heartbeat, of course this made me super anxious that something was wrong so she sent me down the road for an ultrasound. At first the tech couldn't find any sac but then finally found a gestational sac but it was empty. She measured and it only measures 5 weeks 1 day...she said that's too early to see a fetal pole so there's not much to do but wait and hope within a week or two that she can get an image of a baby. I'm super crampy tonight and just unsettled stomach over the whole ordeal. I still have hope everything is fine but I really thought I was at least 6 weeks if not further. My last af was Sept 15 and my normal O was anywhere between cd 26-33...not sure how those dates play a roll for dates or anything but I think I had to of O'd really really late. Still getting dark hpt's so hopefully that's a good sign. They did tell me that based on measurements my due date would be July 16th, which is my birthday So I really hope this baby is okay!

Oh Four, that must have been so stressful. Fundal height can be inaccurate. I’m surprised she used the doppler without knowing for sure because it had the potential to freak you out like it did. I really hope it’s still too early and you will see that beautiful heartbeat next week. I think it’s a good sign your tests are getting darker and you’re not bleeding. Keeping everything crossed for you.

AFM, after William being so settled and happy the past few weeks today was just rubbish. Flat out refused to sleep, fussy, couldn’t be put down, on and off the boob, over tired blah blah blah. DH is still away, he can’t get home because there’s a big storm. I got no sleep last night, none today. I just hope tonight’s better.

Four, I would say, as long as those HPTs stay dark and you dont bleed, you are in the clear. I had some confusion over my dates as well. I knew when I Od and when I got my BFP I should have been 5 weeks already, but the blood test showed HCQ of only 87, which put me in the 3-4 weeks region. I hope you get some clarity soon.

Sarah, I had a night like that Sunday! Its horrible!

Thanks ladies I'm trying not to stress I have a repeat ultrasound in 2 weeks so we should see baby and a heartbeat by then! My new dr also ordered betas for today and Friday so that should give us a good idea too that things are going as planned. I honestly can't imagine loosing this baby since we had quit trying and won't try again, we are just trying to have faith this was meant to be The dr did say that baby implanted perfectly and in a great spot so that makes me feel good! I'll keep you updated
