Fingers crossed! Can't wait to hear that she is here.
It turns out I didn't ovulate, so I am ready to start taking the provera again and start over. I don't know if I should start provera soon and be in the middle of my cycle Jan 10th, or wait for another week or so and be at the begining of my cycle around my Jan 10th appointment. I guess it doesn't matter which i choose, since I will probably not get another real chance until Feb after all the testing... I guess I will wait a few days since my average cycle has been about 35-36 days.
Sorry to hear you didn't o Michelle good thing provera is available so you don't have to have any more crazy long cycles. Your appt will be here before you know it and you will be on your way to your long awaited bfp!
Sorry I've not been on. As you can imagine, I've been busy! On friday my doctor's appt showed no progress and I thought for sure I'd go way overdue. I woke up at 330 am feeling just kinda blah. I snoozed on and off until about 7am when I woke up feeling like I had to use the bathroom and crampy. I lost a bit of plug while using the bathroom and I tred to go back to bed with DH. Then the contractions began. They went on all day and by about 5pm theyhad gotten STRONG. They were still irregular but we decided that since I wouldn't be sleeping through them we would go to l&d anyway. We got there at around 9pm andthey checked me and I hadn't made barely any progress! They monitored me and at mdnight gave me pain meds. Overnight I progressed quickly and by 630 am I was 10 cm. I got my epi at about 5cm. I am not sure hat time that was and to b honest I was in so much pain the whole time it's all a bit foggy. I do remember the doctor saying that they would let me start pushing at 730 and by 8:04 aby Caitlyn Isabel was here! My DH wasn't much help when I was pushing because he was queezy but by that time I didn't need him anyway I was way to focused on the pushing. He cried like a baby when he saw her for the first time though and we both love her so much. She was 7lb 7oz and 19in long. She's doing pretty well but we haven't slept since she was born and we're getting really drained. I'm also super hormonal and I cry a lot but honestly my baby is so wonderful and I love her. Here are a few pics. She has Daddy's hair and maybe his eyes but the rest of her looks like me.
She's adorable! I was thinking the same thing, look at all that hair Love it. I am sure it is all worth it just having her there in your arms. Makes you think how crazy it is that she started out as sperm and an egg...
Yes. Really crazy that she was once a sperm and an egg. I'm so happy to have her here and so far so good. We are all learning together. It's still hectic but the first few days were the worst!It's getting better everyday and we're so in love with her.
Anything newwith any of you? Hope you're doing well!
Nothing new here, just started taking provera, I just want to start af already. I am guessing that I won't be ovulating until hopefully my feburary cycle. I don't think that I will be ovulating on my own, so I just hope that we can do all the tests in January and get the ball rolling in feb. I am enjoying not following a zero tolerance on caffine and wine, and not having to bd on set days, but I just hate waiting for my bfp. On the plus side I have all these holidays to cheer me up. My in laws are all having christmas here this weekend, and my mother and father in-law will arrive this wednesday. I have been doing some spring/winter cleaning big time.
Michelle-That's good that you are keeping busy and the holidays are here. After all that is over you will be on your way to getting things sorted out fertility wise and be that much closer to your bfp!
Steph- glad to hear things are getting easier and you are beginning to adjust to your new life
All is well here. I feel kicks here and there but they are still very subtle and no pattern yet. The ultra sound tech told me I have an anterior placenta so I may not feel obvious kicks until 22 weeks or so. Steph, didn't you have an anterior placenta?
Rachel I did have an anterior placenta and because of it I think I felt baby less than a lot of other women feel their babies. But I did feel things here and there early on and of course as she got bigger I felt it more and more.
Michelle the holidays will surely keep your mind off of ttc until you can get to your appts. I'm sure everything will go well and they will get you sorted in no time!
I'm just running around like a nut lately. Caitlyn keeps us crazy busy and I'm dreading after Christmas when DH has to go back to work and I'll have her here all by myself! SHe is just so much work and I'm finding it so hard to keep up on the housework and everything. DH has been a lifesaver even though he isn't much help at night as he just doesn't wake up when she cries. I'm hoping that once her lungs grow and she can scream louder that he'll be doing some night feedings as well. Breastfeeding is super difficult so I've also been pumping and supplementing her with formula as I just don't feel like she is getting enough because she is hungry within an hour after breastfeeding. I don't know. We are just trying to work through it. The first 5 days were just awful and I was such an emotional wreck but it just keeps getting better and I hope it continues with that pattern.\
Steph- everything you are saying sounds completely normal. I just know you are doing an amazing job with your baby and things will continue to get easier. I am sure it will be so difficult when your dh has to go back to work. I am going to try to have my dh take off and be home for the first 10 days and then work from home for another week or two after that so at least he will be in the house. Unfortunately with the type of job he has (sales) his income would suffer if he took too much time off and we need his income.
Last night I saw my stomach move a little when she kicked it was amazing!
