Hello ladies.. Just popping in to catch up. Pebbles hope op went ok? Ari almost there now. How are belly d, Mel, village, nanny and brown and anyone I've missed? Sue must be getting into third trimester now. In doing ok with E... He is 3 weeks old on Tuesday next week. I think about you guys a lot and hope to read some positive news on here soon... The thread is over due some x


swlondonnanny · 15/11/2014 15:34

Duggs huge congratulations. Does it feel real now E is nearly 3 weeks?
Village I am quite intrigued how Penny came up with your immune treatment? Do you mind sharing your results? I had those tests done in Athens as well and was told that all was fine and dont need any immune treatment as dont have immune issues? Dr gorgy and ndukwe disagreed...
Brown how are you doing? Have you teasted yet?
Ari hope your twins will arrive safely soon
AFM BFN at what I think is 13DPO -am not sure I ovulated though. And on antibiotics for Strep B! Feels like I dont do anything else but taking antibiotics this year.....

Hi ladies ., just wanted to announce the safe arrival of Lawrence (5lb 12oz) and Lewis (6lb 3oz) at 8:47/8:48 this morning. I can't say a CS is my favourite of experiences but I appear to be largely in one piece and the chief midwife in the operating theatre was apparently impressed as she called it a 'textbook' CS. Whatever one of those is!



suemays · 17/11/2014 20:12

ari fantastic news and good weights for the twins! You finally made it, now you can put the journey behind you xx


Pebbles73 · 17/11/2014 20:44

Ari that's fantastic news so pleased for you and your family. They do sound a good weight for twins! Enjoy every moment Smile

Thanks for asking Ari, had it done on Wednesday and all went well. Was a bit strange and painful but felt better after a top up of sedation! Had to lie flat and not move for about five hours (including the two hour procedure) which isn't as easy as it sounds!

When are you due sue?

Waves to all.


brownstag · 17/11/2014 20:55

Just popping my head out from under a six-foot-high pile of work to say the hugest of congratulations, Ari. Love the names too - they were both on my list of favourites (and it was only that our surname would have made the name of a famous author that we had to avoid one of them).
Sorry for the lack of other personals - hardly have time to eat or sleep curently.

Aww huge congrats ari super weights!
Pebbles glad you are ok.
Brown hope you're ok, you must eat!
Waves to everyone else x


swlondonnanny · 18/11/2014 07:46

Ari huge congratulation. Hope you'll recover quickly from your C-section and you can enjoy yout twins Smile


VillageMum · 18/11/2014 13:44

Ari wow! A thousand congratulations and a very big well done to you on getting through the C-section in such style!! Beautiful names too... Enjoy these special first few days together. Grin

Brown you've got me sitting here (when I'm supposed to be working!) compulsively coming up with surnames. Is it Carroll? Durrell? "Of Arabia"? Wink


VillageMum · 18/11/2014 14:04

Pebbles meant to say that I'm glad your op is behind you - you do sound very brave!

And brown just joking of course - no need to disclose!! Smile


BellyD · 18/11/2014 20:53

Ari many many congratulations on the safe arrival of your two little bundles of joy. Feel emotional for you that you have finally achieved your dream. Wonderful news and lovely names, as the others have said. You will definitely have your hands (quite literally) full from now on, but hope you pop back now and again as you have been such an inspiration to so many of us.

Pebbles glad the op went well, hope you are taking it easy.


Mel3062 · 19/11/2014 03:08

My cysitis is now a water infection so antibiotics for me. Bfn 12 dpo I feel really rubbish :( x


suemays · 19/11/2014 12:13

pebbles glad the op went ok. Onwards and upwards!
I'm due on 31st jan but think it will be earlier. The hospital want to induce me on 31st if I haven't given birth by then. Still in denial and haven't got anything ready yet!
Waves to everyone else xx


Iggi999 · 22/11/2014 17:03

Hello, just did a search for Ari as I knew she was due around now - delighted to see the good news!! SmileSmile


Arianrhod · 24/11/2014 22:37

Thank you all lovely ladies! Blurry eyed and fatigued to the point I don't remember what on earth I'm supposed to be doing most of the time, but I'm sure it's all worth it. :)

How are you all doing??


duggs1976 · 25/11/2014 08:53

Yay Ari Grin fab news. Tough having a C section with one, must be impossible looking after two... So pleased for you. How is belly D getting on? Do you have another try in Spain in new year? Will you try donor eggs if this next try doesn't work out? X


Arianrhod · 29/11/2014 09:05

Morning ladies .. Just wondered how you're all doing?


Mel3062 · 29/11/2014 10:35

Ari hope alls well your end. I'm ok on day 9, scan tomorrow though no pains this time with gonal f but no headache either :) hubby's had both knees drained so no Dtd yet :( my mum has been diagnosed with either early Parkinson's or early dementia so it's not been a great week! X


Arianrhod · 29/11/2014 19:15

Oh crikey mel, so sorry to hear about your mum. Let's hope it's one of those with slow progression. And if this week was that [email protected], then next week has to be better, right? :)


Mel3062 · 30/11/2014 13:17

Thanks ari I hope so! Scan was great today last month I had 2 big follicles this month just one but it only takes one?! X


Mel3062 · 01/12/2014 22:15

Not so great I ment! One at 21 and one at 15, wel


suemays · 03/12/2014 12:37

I only had one egg at 21 but it worked as am now 32 weeks! I was disappointed too but think quality rather than quantity!


Mel3062 · 03/12/2014 18:22

I know hun thanks I keep thinking of that! X


Arianrhod · 11/12/2014 15:31

How's everybody doing .. very quiet on here??


brownstag · 11/12/2014 17:06

Yes, very slack. Personally, I am overworked, ill with the worst cold and writing this wearing nasal tampons fashioned from tissues. It's the only way I can function. And just into BFN territory after my month of antibiotics. I took letrozole this cycle too.
How are you? Are you getting any sleep?
