Hey lovely!

I am going to be 37 when LO arrives as long as it is a sticky one - this will also be #4.

How old are your others? How are you feeling?

Plus, the fact that they took it seriously and didn't assume it was the trigger made me feel a little more confident.

I am being cautious, but am also really excited if this is what I think it is! It's funny... we tried for so long and the breaks in between were agonizing (our donor moved away and then I had a dermoid on my ovary so had to have surgery, then I got laid off) so it felt like it would be forever until we'd get our BFP, even once I started with the RE. Now it feels like everything is happening so fast and sooner than I let myself hope for it to happen. With all of the difficulties in the rest of my life (due to terminally ill relatives and friends, plus lost a pet last week), it was about dang time to have some good news!

How are you doing? I can't imagine going through this with other children needing my attention, but I guess you do what you have to and make it work!
1st of I'm so glad you get to go in for blood work tomorrow and don't have to wait all weekend. Yay!
FX for high #'s!!!

Sorry you've gone through all the heartache lately... it's about time good things start happening to you. You know what the say... When you least expect it

As to me, I'm feeling GREAT. If it weren't for the daily evening cramps (uterine expansion) and the tender, oversized boobee's I'd think I'm on CD 7 NO NAUSEA, NO FATIGUE... It's crazy! My skin is actually better now then on CD 7 lol thanx for asking.

As far as the older kiddos goes, it really isn't as bad. My 10 & 8 year old are pretty independent, they take their own showers and wash their own hair, which helps a lot. The only help they ask for is with their homework, which I love helping with. My 3 year old obviously requires a little more attention. But she is pretty easy going, and it doesn't take much to entertain her Being potty trained make a big difference! My DD 1&2 are 22 months apart, and were both in diapers for a few months, and that was a little harder, but as you said, we gotta do what we gotta do!

xx

Will be thinking of you tomorrow! Best of luck

Yes I did find out the gender - it's a girl. We have b/g twins so I would have been happy either way!

It's great that you don't have any morning sickness yet. I actually had more with this pregnancy than with the twins! Also feel more tired, maybe it's my age?!

Hey wicky78, congrats! Thanks

Congratulations on team

I have felt extremely exhausted with my previous PG's from the beginning and that was 11, 9 & 4 years ago... So it can't be age related lol Maybe Girl fetuses wear out more hehe, yeah let's go with that

My lasses are older; 16, 14 and 7

I'm waiting a little longer to tell them but told OH immediately (although I kind of wish I had held off and done it in a more fun way! I was just so stunned!)

My mum guessed last week and I've told two close gal pals.

I'm quite queasy and achey of boob, but it's also kinda reassuring to have symptoms!!

Have you told many? I'm guessing people will give it "oh are you hoping for a boy?" I've heard that soooo many times!

How funny that your mom guessed hehehe love it!

No, other than DH no one knows... I'm dying to tell my oldest, but she has been wanting a brother for so long. I'm afraid when I tell her she'll get her hopes up again. When I found out #3 was a girl, she cried... So I'm wanting to wait till I find out gender and if it's another girl (most likely, cause that's all I grow lol) I can gently prepare her, and if miracles do happen and it's a boy, well then we'll both cry together, happy tears this time...

With that said, I DO hope it's a boy, and everyone who knows me knows that I've always wanted a boy, with my 1st 2nd and 3rd. I'm planning to to find out at 10 weeks via harmony test, just to prepare myself for either scenario. I do want to enjoy this final pregnancy and not have any regrets!

Yes a few mild symptoms sure are reassuring. I also have extremely full and tender bb's and cramps every night. And I'm not complaining

How far along are you? Are you hoping for a certain gender? What genders are your older 3?

Happy Friday ~
