Really bummed though, cause I got checked at the midwives again today, and nothing has changed at all since last week. I feel like I'm in a time crunch because I know they don't want me to go over due to the gd. And I'm having such a hard time getting around these days, I'm ready to move on to the next part.

Still thinking of you, Suzie

My cold has progressed to major coughing. I couldn't take it anymore and sent my husband out yesterday during the "storm" to get me pregnancy-safe cough medicine. I have been up since 4 this morning because I couldn't stop coughing. Poor Ben has a double ear infection, but he seems to be doing well since starting the antibiotic on Tuesday evening. I give him infant Motrin if he gets very fussy and at bedtime, but try to use only if he seems to need it.

I've been eating well, and I'm now down a few pounds. I'm not actively TRYING to lose weight, just trying to eat very healthy (no grains, no artificial sweeteners, very limited soy, focus on whole foods...). The biggest change for me has been ditching diet soda. I have had 2 sips in the past 4 days. I'm drinking lots of water with lemon and unsweetened almond milk, warm chicken broth if I need a hot drink.

First, I have to tell you I laughed at the "originally quoted" part; it trigger thoughts of you negotiating with the doctor But 7-low 8s is great, and that's because you've done so well at controlling your GD!
I've known multiple moms who were showing no signs of progress at a "check" and then went into labor within a few days anyway. I also know some who did show signs of progress and still didn't go into labor until after their due dates. I refused to be checked at my appointments for this very reason. I didn't lose my mucus plug until literally hours before I went into labor. You just never know!

Good luck! Mom feeling ready is one of the best reasons to go for it

Thanks! Ben does get more fruits and veggies than meat (though more veggies than fruit) since I read about some proteins being harder to digest when they're very young, but I can already tell his system is maturing and doing better because he used to get constipated if he had protein at both lunch and dinner, but the constipation isn't happening anymore, so now we have started adding eggs or meat to his lunch as well.

But pick those grains wisely! Sprouted live grains perhaps?
I know he has had whole grains a few times in the form of "puffs" at daycare before I told her I didn't want him having those (now I bring yogurt drops for him to snack on), and it didn't seem to bother him, which I hope is a good thing.

Anyone here with PCOS taking metformin? I conceived my daughter while on it 4 years ago and am seeing the doc next week to go back on it in anticipation of TTC late next year.

It really helped my ovulation. I've never been LC and on it though and wondered if I ought to see a greater weight loss than I'd normally see on just LC. I know metformin can help women with PCOS lose a little weight.

I was on it. I have PCOS. However, it made me so ill and it never went away for me. I even tried the extended release version with the same results. So, I quit taking it. I am hoping as I lose weight my cycles will straighten themselves out. Last time I lost weight before (gained weight since then) my cycles did straighten out and I did ovulate again. I know the Metformin works for a lot of people though. Hope you have good results with it

Suzie this is so awful, I have tears running down my face. I hope you and your husband take care of yourselves and lean on your family because this is truly too heavy a load for just two people to carry by themselves.

Lots of love to you from the CJ family

Jilly I dunno if I shared with you about my bad cough or not. Every year I get a really bad cold that turns into a bad cough. The kind you just can't shake, where it keeps you up all night. Every year I have it for over a month. Every year I go to the doc in the first week and ask for anitbiotics and they tell me "No, you don't need it, it's just a cold" And every year, it sticks around. Then after 6 weeks or so of non stop coughing and little sleep I go back and they give them to me and within days the cough is gone.
This year, when I got it I asked my Midwives what I should do. They gave me their "Group B strep remedy" and told me to try it. And ya know what? It worked! Within a week my cough was gone. It's very specific dosages of vitamins and supplements. If you're interested in trying it, private message me and I'll send you the exact info.

Hopefully weight loss gives you nice predictible cycles! I hear you on metformin making you sick. Makes me tummy sick for a little while but then goes away. That stuff can be brutal on the guts and butts!

I am pretty sure I'm ovulating now but it worked so well for me last time that I want to use it again. There have also been studies which show a 50% reduction in early miscarriage for women who have PCOS and take metformin during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. I'll be 39 this year and start TTC in 6 or more months, so I want that piece of mind.

Andi ~ When do you test? You should be getting close.

Lori ~ Youíve done such a good job with your eating during this pregnancy. Iím pretty dang proud of you. On labor front, donít worry, things can change quickly.

Jilly ~ You called me mom! I like it. Feel better soon.

Shannon ~ I have PCOS but ovulate while on a LC diet. I have taken Met in the past, but only for a short time. Metformin basically does the same thing a LC diet does. Based on all the womenís stories I have read, diet and weight loss is enough to help most women with ovulatory disorders, but even then some still have to take met. Do you know if you are ovulating? Have you charted your cycles? For me personally, I wonít take meds unless necessary (esp. during pregnancy), but weíre all different in that regard. Good luck to you.

AFM Iím expecting an egg any day now. My emotional investment in this cycle is pretty low. It took us a long time to get pregnant before, so I donít expect this time to be any different. My fertility specialist appointment is tomorrow. I hope it goes well!

Thank you so much for all your support. We just got home from the hospital not too long ago. We were beyond ready to be home. It was so hard to be in the maternity ward all week. Connor Steven was born this morning at 3:38 am. He was 2 lb 3 oz, 14 inches, and so precious. He had blonde hair like me and my nose. My whole family was there for him to be baptized and they all got to say goodbye to him in their own way and could hold him if they wanted to. He is so loved and missed so much already.

Lori - I agree with the other ladies, you have done an amazing job!

Debbie - I am 8 DPO today and planning on testing this weekend. Originally I thought I would stop testing unless AF was late because its hard to see those BFN's but as it turns out I have a pending Vegas trip so I need to test and buy my flight tix if BFN! Im nervous as ever.

Andi I've done the "I won't test unless AF does not show" bit and it fails every time! At least you have a good reason to test early. Keep us informed.

Suzie, were they able to give a reason why this happened?

Suzie it's amazing how the little guy managed to touch so many lives. So glad you got to spend some time with him and see him. *hugs* and prayers to you and your family. Connor was and is very loved.

I would say I'm interested, but I fear it wouldn't work so well for me. Due to the weight loss surgery I've had, I don't absorb vitamins and minerals and whatnot at the same rate as others (which is why I have to take supplements at least 4 times every day for the rest of my life).

You know, even though I was in labor, the reality of having a baby REALLY hit me when the nurses in the hospital kept calling my husband, "Dad." As if I weren't emotional enough being in labor, that brought tears to my eyes.

Suzie, were they able to give a reason why this happened?
They are not 100% sure yet. We opted to get the placenta and blood tested, as well as an autopsy and both or our blood genetically tested. The doctor said the only thing he noticed was that the placenta was a little small and calcified a little. He thinks it may have just gave out for some reason. He said to be prepared to just not get an answer, which I think will be incredibly hard. We want a "abc happened because of xyz." We want to know how to fix this. We both just are still trying to process everything. Even though we were in the hospital Monday - Thursday, it just keeps hitting us in waves. It feels unreal at times, and then incredibly overwhelming at others.

ETA: The hospital was fantastic. They had a grief counselor that visited with us regularly and was in the delivery with us. She will be checking in with us at home and we will be going to a group meeting at the hospital.

Thanks Debbie. The whole thing is getting painful. Im going to switch my focus back to diet. I tried once but TTC just took over again. This is such an emotional rollercoaster. I have a new goal to lose weight and look good by the time we go on vacation in July. If we get pregnant by then, even better! But I really need something to take the pressure off. I'll continue to temp and chart and we will do our part but I need to get my mind off it.

I'm sorry ladies, I've been MIA and busy! Tons of contractions and discomfort, some progress, my midwives don't think I'll go overdue in this pregnancy (for once).

All is still go for my home birth, my vitals are perfect, baby is healthy. Just a TON of contractions that are quite painful. I always have prodromal labor, but this baby is sitting much lower than my others and thus the contractions are at least doing more. I had some spotting the other night after a particularly intense bout, so I'm thinking I got some dilation with the effacement I know has been going on.

But yeah, I'm me mentally and physically tired. Grateful things are going well, though! As we told people at church today (apparently I must have looked miserable, everyone seemed to be commenting and asking how I was feeling, which is funny since most didn't know I was pregnant a month ago, as my belly looks fairly small) I'm due any day the baby decides to show, and we're hoping that is sooner than not! Especially since my father in law, who is our childcare for the birth, is going out of town for a work project in a week!

38 weeks, at any rate. The days are numbered by God and he knows, but I have no clue how much longer the baby will bake. He/she will come quickly when they do, but the first five cm always take ages for me. Boo!

Now I REALLY need to get my diet back in check, as I went way off track when I was sick these past couple weeks. My throat actually STILL hurts today, which marks day 14 in a row of sore throat

I had also been saying recently that I really needed a happy hour to just go out and drink (which I only do maybe 2-3 times a year), but looks like that might have to wait another year!
I just saw this. Congratulations! I LOOOOVE the spacing of my first two (they're just shy of fifteen months apart) and the wider kid spacing a since then haven't been as enjoyable for me. Close siblings in terms of age is actually a bit easier, in my experience

Sorry about that sore throat, though, and hopefully by now (with my late commenting) it's cleared all up
