First Positive Pregnancy Test
My husband and I decided to try just 3 cycles to TTC a 3rd child. At 36, he saw that as a good compromise as he was less excited about another child and the statistics aren't good at our age. But lo and behold, I got a BFP at 9dpo on cycle #2!

I am over the moon. However, I've never (ever!) had a miscarriage and feel like the odds are stacked against me this time.

Only time will tell. =-)

Wow what a birth story! I’m so happy you’re both doing well, no NICU, and breastfeeding is great. Congrats!

Thanks Calvingirl! He was smaller than predicted but still an awesome size. We're doing great and starting to get into a good routine where I get enough sleep to feel human. Babies are so wonderful. :)

Big boy too! Phoebe was born at 37+2 and was only 5 lbs, 13oz. What an awesome name too. You must be so happy! Get some rest and enjoy your new little prince!

Hey Erica... That's right. :( The meds are already working - ctx's are only 15 mins apart or so - but I do expect them to get bad again as soon as I stop the Indocin. And you can only be on Indocin for 48 hours without risk to the baby, and only until 32 weeks. They are doing an ultrasound on Friday and we will take it from there. This sucks so bad but day by day seems like the only way to handle it.

Read your recent comment on your bump photo. I hope the meds give you a break. So unless you start dilating there is nothing else they really do for this? :(
