That's great he is gaining now!

I had terrible supply. Like less than half an ounce after 10 mins feeding. So I ended up using formula and things improved from the first bottle. I actually ended up having insufficient glandular tissue so it was a physical issue caused in puberty.

Sarah firstly congratulations! Secondly I'm sorry you had a traumatic time. That was like my first too and he spent first 2 weeks in nicu as a result. We avoided a section but it should of been one. Cab I just say well done on breastfeeding despite everything. I pumpedfor 4to 5 weeks but found it hard to feed after it all. It sounds like he is doing well now gaining. Your body and milk will adjust it could of been after the section your milk was a bit slow to come in which is normal. Well done you xx

Nothing happening here. Got a few positive opks last week no sure if my body is ovulating or not on it's own. Would be great if so but doubt it. I'm trying to loose weight before my appt in November not easy when bf and hungry a lot!

Hey, everyone!

Sarah, I'm so sorry for the traumatic delivery. That sounds awful. I hope that you are getting much needed rest and recovery with your support system around you. Just keep your mind on that sweet baby!

Angela, any word from your TWW? If AF comes, then I hope that your FET goes well!

Krissie, how is baby doing?!

Red, any more signs of ovulation?

Dogmommy, I'm so happy for you!

AFM, nothing to update. My master's program started in September, and of course I'm busy with teaching, so that's all been a welcome distraction. I do keep sporadically wishing for a baby, though. Especially now that I've turned 26. For some reason I keep thinking that the youngest possible age that I could be and still have a baby is going to be 27, and that's if I get pregnant right now. It's not that I think 27 is old, it's just that when I imagine my life at 27 when I was younger, I assumed I would have kids.

Brandi- congrats on starting your program! What are you studying?

I had my first at 28. Later than I planned for sure. But none the less good timing with all my schooling.

Afm, we attempted a fetal echo on little miss today but she was in a horrible postion and refused to move or wake up. So now I have to drive 2 hours back in two weeks. Outside of that everything has been going well and fast! Less than 4 months now!

It's flying by, Krissie! Do you all have a name picked out? I'm so glad all is going well.

28 is a good age for a first baby. I hope that I can be a mommy by then, too.

I feel like I'm somewhat getting back on the health bandwagon. It's a struggle for me, definitely. I just prayed and felt strongly like God was telling me that he would give me a baby, but that I need to take care of my body first. I know that may sound silly, and no worries if you're non-religious, it's just what I felt like was being said to me. So for the last few days, I have been keeping that statement in mind. I really need to lose 60-80 pounds. I am just going to try my best and keep my end goal as my focus...to be a mom.

As for school, my master's will be in teaching and learning. I already have my B.S. in elementary education, so this will just be an enhancement of that.

Brandi- I hope you are a mommy by then too. Have you guys talked any more about pursing treatment?

Yes, we have picked out a name. Her name is Alice Rose.

Thank you, Krissie! We have still just put it on hold. It's just really not in our budget. I think if a few more years pass with no luck, then we will look back into it. It's motivational to me to start trying to eat better because of the possibility of getting pregnant without all of those additional costs.

I love that name! That is just beautiful. A perfect name!

Hi girls I was thinking of this thread the other day and haven't had a chance to catch up.

Krissie what a lovely name. We are going for our fetal echo on the 1st. That stinks she wasn't cooperating for it.

Brandi that's great for you. I've always daydream about going back to school but I just can't bring myself to do it. I'm an honest believer age is just a number. I'm in my 30s and I thought that I would have children in my 20s but I'm so glad I had my 20s to do whatever I wanted and traveled and indulged!

Angela any news? I have absolutely everything crossed for you. I have a great feeling about your FET. My bleeding did stop completely and was resolved on the ultrasound.

Red I really hope you are O ing on your own! It's glad you have appt set up in November but I'm hoping it works out for you before!

Sarah I'm so sorry. That sounds awful. But I'm glad everything is going well with baby boy.
