Oh hey, I've been stalking all morning. Waiting for an update from Rama!
E is 20 months. Doing toddler things. She's newly obsessed with Brave and the "baby bars" as she calls them. We've been settling into our new life. I've been trying to think of it as an adventure as much as possible.
Well, Ridley had her nephrology appointment this morning and it went pretty well. The doctor doesn't think it's SIADH, though that's the only thing that makes any sense, but her labs don't support it. They redid them today to make sure, though. If it is SIADH, it's probably caused by my meds. Which means we would have to stop breastfeeding and I'm really not looking forward to that. I was hoping to breastfeed for another year. Ugh. I have a glimmer of hope that it's just her new normal, though. If the blood work comes back normal they'll do a 24 hour catheter to see how much she's peeing and see if it's within normal limits. Apparently she can pee as little as like 250ish mL and still be normal. So that's my current hope.
In other news she waves and claps all the time. She can say dada and hey, but doesn't say much often. Her favorite foods are apple cinnamon oatmeal and green curry rice. And she loves to climb over people that are on the floor.

Hey GKU! R will be 6 months on Monday! No idea how time is going by so quickly. We've started giving him some solids and so far his favorite seems to be pears.
Back in November we had to go see a neurosurgeon because he was really cone head his head wasn't rounding out as expected. At that appointment the dr didn't think there was anything wrong and that he just needed more time. Well today we had his follow-up and the dr said we're all good! He has "graduated" from the neuro and no additional follow-up is needed. Excited not to have to worry about that!
He can sit on his own for short lengths of time and loves to be on his feet. He still hates tummy time, although he tolerates it better than he used to, but part of me wouldn't be surprised if this kid walks before he crawls, lol.
Mom! Gimme food faster! **poof**
Sitting up! **poof**
And his new favorite, sticking out his tongue! **poof**

FX the tests bring good results and a plan going forward, @led !
A is 8.5 months today. He's such a little ham now. He loves to people watch and flirt with anyone who gives him any kind of attention, a completely 180 from a few weeks ago when he'd seize up around strangers. We've struggled with weight gain (according to the pedi nurse, I was not super concerned since he didn't show any other alarming signs), but I can confidently say I think his next weight check (tomorrow) will be his last as my arms and back quiver at the thought of picking him up. He's super close to crawling but would rather "walk" with mom or dad to chase the dog.
As always, I love checking up on y'all; I'm watching and hoping to see more BFPs!!
Here's my babe enjoying a nice day on the swing. (PDQ, will poof tonight)
Alec and Adeline turned 4 months old on Sunday but we don't have our appt until Friday so I have no official stats but the scale tells me he is about 17lbs and she is almost 11lbs !
We are currently going through a sleep regression which has not been the most fun thing but they make up for it with their general cuteness. They are both rolling over decently, Adeline really loves to roll back side to tummy and about five minutes ago she just took a "crawl" !!! We'll see if it was a one off bc that's damn early.
We don't have much to report...in a lull between our u/s last week and our anatomy scan at the end of the month. We did get NIPT test results, which were good. We aren't finding out sex, though...I'll admit that knowing someone out there knows is a little crazy! We are "out" now to the world (no hiding it, I'm enormous already) so that's exciting. Love seeing everyone's updates and pics of all the beautiful bubs!
TTC since July 2014. CP March 2015. IVF #1 March 2016, 5R, 3M, 2F with ICSI. Transferred 2 on day 3. CP. Surprise BFP and then CP August 2016 (prep cycle for IVF). IVF #2: zero eggs retrieved IVF #3: 6R, 5M, 5F, 3 (2 8A and 1 11A) transferred, one "B" graded embryo frozen on day 5. BFP (at home 7dp3dt, confirmed 14dp3dt with 1552 beta) and U/S at 5w5d, 2 sacs and 2 yolks!
D is 15 weeks old. She is a really awesome, fun baby and we're settling into a good schedule with her naps, eating, and night time sleep. Just in time for us to turn everything on its head when I go back to work in a few more weeks!
A big growth spurt this past week has me scrambling to sort out her wardrobe, as we seem to have skipped right over 6 month clothes into 9 😳 It sure is fun dressing her up though!
Hi GKU. Eleanor is a week shy of 16 months. She's becoming quiet the running, climbing, crazy spitfire. She's saying lots of words and never seems to run out of energy. She's awesome.
AFM, I got another BFP over the weekend. Considering I just had a loss in January I've been kind of crazed since. But my lines are getting darker, which helps. Just trying to take things one day at a time.
My OB contacted me last week to congratulate me on my twins! The third sac is a pregnancy that did not progress, so it is a loss. MrRama and I have been dealing with the loss of Baby C okay and we're looking forward to meeting Babies A & B very much.
But in much, much happier news, I would like to welcome a dear, dear friend into the thread that I am very, very excited about: **spoiler for suspense**
Ooh my gosh Rama, thanks for the lovely into! You're sweet!
I guess I have news! On cycle 43 we got our first ever BFP!! On our own, which is a huge shock. I literally just found out yesterday. And to make matters more interesting, we leave today for an Iceland/European vacation for two weeks! So no beer or wine for me, but I guess it's OK! And the best part, I'm going to surprise MH when we get to Iceland tomorrow. I can't keep the news longer than that. So that's what I've got.
