donor eggs/IVF

<t>Hi ladies. We cannot make up our minds with the TTC. About 6 weeks ago we thought we made the final decision to give up on fertility treatments. We started looking into adoption-my husband is not a big fan about adoption for more than one reason once we started researching the options. I can't le...

Re : breats leaking?

<t>I had that too starting at 26 weeks-major embarrassing. I had to wear breastfeeding pads that my mom had to buy since I was in the hospital on bed rest. Call your dr and ask about the normal part for your own piece of mind. It has been 3 years so I don't remember the reason, but do remember my dr...

Re : Bleeding throughout pregnancy

I had unexplained bleeding at week 7 and then a slight rip in the placenta at week 9 that caused bleeding. It was diagnosed as a slight abruption. Then PE diagnosed at 25 weeks. Delivered at 27. Hmmm, good question!

Re : TTC Questions and (on a separate note) Facebook

<t>Hi there. I am sorry about your loss. Just before we started with infertility treatment, my ob told me to do it every other day from cycle day 6-20. So far, that method alone has worked for my 2 friends. According to what my dr. said, you want to rebuild sperm count on the days off and sperm can ...

Re : weaning off bottle/exclusive pumping? -update 8/12

<t>I pumped for 18 months. By month 15, my body was shutting down. I used the Medela Classic Breast pump which I purchased off of ebay to pump with every 2-3 hours. Then when I went back to work, I used the Medela Advanced during work hours and my classic when I was home. It was sort of nice to sit ...

Re : Does PE effect milk supply?

I had no problems with my milk supply. I had to pump since my little one was in the NICU, but I used the hospital grade pump. The hospital pump made a big difference in the amount I pumped compared to the Medela Advanced Pump In Style. Good luck!

Re : What to eat?

This may sound crazy but it worked for me: I had all day sickness too so I would suck on sour gummy bears. The sour thing seemed to help the nausea. I also ate lots of mac and cheese, pizza, and Pizza Hut breadsticks. PBJ sandwiches were good too. Hope you feel better soon!

Re : scared about ttc

<t>Hi Anna and Welcome. I was like you. I had PE at 25 and made it 2 weeks in the hospital on bedrest. My son was 830 grams. We spent 3 months in the NICU and have had 3 surgeries too. My son is great and will be 4 this December. I am still on bp meds so my case is a bit different than the other lad...
