Marie, what an amazing thing you've been able to do, carrying two healthy babies. Next week you'll have your two little girls!!! Do you have any plans for this final pre-baby weekend?

Hope everyone else is doing great.

Hi Ladies!!!
So sorry it has taken me so long to update. I forgot how exhausting being a mom to a newborn is lol. Not to mention, DH is working 14 hour days 6 days a week. It's really a tough time...me trying to manage on my own. Enough with that... My lovely DAUGHTER is here!!! I still can't believe she's a SHE! We had a rough delivery. I'm in the process trying to type out our birth story Sorry it's taking so long. Currently I'm typing and arguing with my 7 yo about a stain in her favorite outfit lol. Wow....there isnt enough hours in the day lol.
Journee Merci Lyla Klein

8lbs 5oz 21" long
We simply adore her. Big sis is OBSESSED with changing her diaper everytime she pee's in it, I swear she hovers over her waiting for her to wet her diaper lol. Big bro enjoys looking at her and holding her when she's in a good mood. Dad gets to see her for about an hour or two so after work. He's still getting used to her crying lol. He thinks everytime she cries she's hungry
I can't wait to post pics. Just got to find the time to get them on the computer and resize them!

Anyone having any success with any type of schedule for your LO's? Anyone not using a paci? We aren't using a pacifier and OMG it's so hard!!!

Marie-I'm so excited for you! Those are awesome weights. I know your thrilled!!!

Congrats Klein! I can't wait to hear more and see pics of little Journee.

We weren't using a pacifier, but for the past week Declan has been screaming for hours and we broke down and gave one to him. I only give it to him when he is having a hard time, but I found out last night my DH has been just giving it to him every time he wants him to sleep (grrrr...).

We aren't sure what is causing this colic like reaction. Declan has a lot of gas and reflux. He spits up sometimes what seems half his feedings after he eats. I took him in for craniosacral therapy and she thought he was fine and maybe has a food sensitivity. I have been so careful with what I am eating, but then I realized I was still eating butter. We are taking him in to get allergy testing by a naturopath as soon as I can get an appointment.

I still have open gaps in my incision that aren't healing. I have to go back to the OB who did my CS Friday to see what is going on.

Is anybody else having issues with milk supply if BFing? I have tons at times and almost nothing at other times. It is so incredibly frustrating. I am taking 4 fenugreek 3 x aday to try to increase my supply, and Declan always wants to feed. Sometimes he just cries because I don't think he is getting enough. I am pumping too so he always has backup. I have seen 4 lactation consultants and have another coming on Wednesday (my homeopath is coming and she is also a lactation consultant so I will be getting her help as well). One of the lactation consultants, who is very well known and respected in our area and was recommended by my midwives and the hospital, told me that occasionally when you have assisted reproduction there can be milk supply issues and not to be too hard on myself if it doesn't work out. That really freaked me out and I have been trying even harder since I heard that.

Checking in quickly from the hospital. Babies arrived yesterday. Angela Reese is 5lb 11oz 18 inches born @ 5:44pm & Cassidy Quinn is 5 lb 13oz 18-1/4 inches born @ 5:45pm. Babies are thriving (no nicu) but i had hellp syndrome & high blood pressure. Hopefully they will get it under control. I will post pics of my beautiful little girls soon.
Klein- congrats!
Sienna- you are next!

Marie, congratulations!!!! I remember going through the February/March IVF cycle group with you and just can't believe it's finally our turn to be mothers.
So happy that your girls don't need the NICU, take care of yourself and I hope your health issues resolve quickly.

I'm now on domperidone to try and keep my supply going after a couple of dips and one total crash at the beginning of the week.
