IVF Pregnancies - Due in Spring 2012!

Hi There

I would love to connect with those having babies this spring.  I underwent a 3-day donor egg IVF transfer in August 2011 and am expecting twins in April 2012.

I need lots of baby dust.   I'm 42 this is my 2nd fresh IVF   I'm taking microdose Lipton and gonall f twice a day.    My first Ivf was when I was 38.   Things didn't work out   I had 13 eggs.  5 fertilized.  We did three cycles.  I finally stopped NO POSTIVE TESTS.   People ask why I took so long to start again.  I just don't know I wasn't ready.  I know my age is a big factor but this time I feel I'm ready.  please send lots of luck and keep us in yalls prayers.

I only stayed in until the friday, (4 days including the day of birth) He was under the lamp for heat but only for an hour and we kept an eye on him becoming Jaundis but it worked out all OK....
I know how you feel, just a feeding machine ha ha, however my lil man is sleeping great so Im not tired as with lack of sleep, he is sleeping lots and is great. We have his 1st Doc appointment and hopefully he has put on a couple of ounces.......
I just sit and watch him sleep, its amazing and I still can't believe he is all mine........ :-)

Congrats!!!!  I am so glad Liam made it out safely.  Are you still at the hospital?  We had to stay 2 extra days.  The first because Grace was cold and the second because she had to be under the UV lights for jaundice.  It was so nice to finally come home.  Now I am trying to get used to very little sleep and nursing all the time (or so it seems).  Isn't it just amazing every time you look at your little baby?

Well, I got induced on Monday and a few hours into it they had to stop the IV. His lil heartbeat was dropping everytime I had a contraction, so 1 1/2hrs later I got a C Section, Little Liam Alexander was Born at 9:50am, 5lbs 11oz & 18 1/4" in length.. He is a lil cracker....... Good luck to the others who still have to give birth and keep us posted.

Thought I would add to the birth stories on this forum!  My water broke last night at 5:30pm while I was at home.  I phoned the hospital and asked if I could take a shower and get ready before coming in and they said that was fine.  So we arrived at the hospital by 6:30pm with me still gushing water off/on.  They admitted me but I was only having very mild intermittent contractions.  I started real labor about 1am and delivered my surprise gender baby girl by 8:29am without drugs.  It was hell with no sleep and the last food at 10pm.  I did not think I would survive and was so ready for the nurse to say it's taking too long let's give you drugs and/or c-section...anything for relief!  I thought I had a high pain threshold but it kicked my butt!  But when I hold baby Grace Addison it is all worth it.  Hubby and I are mesmerized by her.  Can't wait to hear more birth stories!

I had my weekly check-up today and baby is still head-down, YAY!!!  No c-section!  The midwife estimates baby is more than 7 and less than 8lbs and I've been dilated at 1 cm for the last 3 weeks.  4 more days until due date and wondering when baby will make an appearance.  Any more birth stories out there?

Well, I am 39 weeks and 2days pregnant. My baby weighs 6.5lb. and things seem to be back on track.My due date is 5/14
Don't believe the dr's all the time, they make plenty of mistakes. I do not want to be induced, our plan is to have natural childbirth.
Artificial induction usually leads to a cascade of chemical interventions. One of the main reasons they want to induce is because most of us are in the high risk category because of age. Our placenta's are older and there is risk of detachment from the baby. I still am a believer that our bodies know what to do and with all the technology we have, dr's are able to keep such a close watch on everything.
Anyway, what an exciting time for everyone. Let's all stay in touch !!!

What is the reason for inducing early?  Don't they want to give your baby as long as possible to grow bigger?  If you do end up getting induced it will be on my due date!  Maybe we'll deliver the same day!  I will pray though that you start labor naturally.  I have heard from another lady that she went into labor spontaneously on the morning she was to be induced.  Keep us posted!

Baby is still head down at today's check-up, yay!!!  But, the midwife told me baby is posterior or sunny-side-up so that usually means longer and more painful labor with a lot of back pain.  Can't win them all.  11 days til due date!

Congrats to both of you and enjoy this time of snuggling with your babies!  I cannot wait to meet mine.  38 weeks tomorrow.  It's so crazy knowing that labor could start at any moment.

Congratsulations!!!!! You did it. I am so happy for you. Don't worry Your little girl will be home soon!
Also Pecas just had her twins. Congrats to Pecas!!!
The next couple of weeks are going to be exciting for all.
I will be 38 weeks Monday and my baby is weighing in small, they are doing NST's and growth anatomy. Unfortunately, Dr's just found hypertension, so they are keeping a close watch. I am hoping there is no labor induction.
Keep me in your thoughts.
Hugs to all.

Baby stayed head down at my prenatal check on Wed. Yeah!!!  Ever since the baby turned I have been able to see the movements on my belly so much better and it seems like the baby is much more active.  The ob/gyn said the baby was frank breech so its legs were up around its head.  Maybe now the legs have more room to move around.

Let us know how the u/s is on Thurs.  I'll be praying for great results!
