Group for the BFPs
Hi, girls! I just wanted to create a group for all the BFPs we have gotten. There have been so many lately and i have gotten to know a lot of you and i don't want to go to another forum. I feel bad talking on other groups about my bfp when others are still trying. So I figured we could talk about things in here too! I am 6w5d today. I have a 2yr old dd and am 39 yrs old. Just starting to get a few symptoms and my eye is twitching out of control. Hope to hear from my other bfp friends!

Hey ladies! Oh what a week it’s been. First we are doing great now. Second my house is a mess (welcome to newborn life) third 5hours asleep a day is rough but so worth it
We are home and got to come home right on the usual time frame. He did have a close call to NICU for his body temperature we couldn’t get him to stay warm at 97.7. His sugar levels passed the 24hours testing. He passed all other test as well. He has no health problems at all. I am breastfeeding and had some difficulty birth (since he was late preterm baby.) So had to get a Lactation Specialist to come out to house to help me. We have to use a “nipple shield” for 2 weeks and mouth exercises to help him latch and suck better. Soon will ween him off the nipple shield. Also she recommended me a hospital grade breast pump WOW!! That is better than the one my insurance gave me LOL.
Other than that we are doing great and wet/dirty diapers are coming along well. I have been peed on twice and pooped on once baby boys!!! Lol. Oh and he doesn’t cry much at all. Loving every moment. I do miss my pregnant belly.

@Beaut1ful38. He is so adorable. I'm glad everything is going ok and that he passed all of his tests. I've only been peed on a couple times, it's quite a shocker when one isn't expecting it. He even peed on my hubby and I had quite the chuckle.
AFM. Yesterday was a good day for me and Isaiah. His legs are getting stronger every day and I am sure he will start crawling soon. We also had some amazing bonding time. Was in the process of giving him a bath and he started to get upset a bit. So, I climbed in the tub with him. Let me say it was an amazing experience. I have a question for you ladies. Isaiah has a case of baby shudders. I read that it is a neurological thing and can be alarming to some parents. But should I beconcerned. He sees his paediatrician on June 4 and I will ask the doctor then.
Other than that, I hope everyone is doing well with their pregnancies and enjoying every movement.

Thank you RooRoo. I wanted to comment but the stupid ads wouldn't let me click on the post. It even won't let me add my period date. It's nice that the site is free and all but wish there wasn't so many ads popping up all the time.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there and soon to be. I hope you all had a wonderful day.

Hi ladies. I was given some sad news today but I know my son will be in good hands. I was told that Isaiah will need to undergo surgery because the umbilical cord stump will not fall off. I can't remember the exact name and if I do then I will edit this post. If things go well he can go for surgery next friday. He wont have to stay the night unless the stump goes through his stomach then he will. I will be allowed to stay with him if that is the case. There is also a risk that he could get an infection because it is such an isolated location. I am nervous as I have grown so attached to him. In the long run, I want this taken care of because this could cause more complications down the road. I will keep everyone updated.

Dragonfly23 - I know you sound calm about it, but you have to be freaking out. I'm so sorry - it's so scary when your baby has to go through something like this. I'm thinking of you and little Isaiah, and I'm sure it'll go fantastic. Fast healing to him and calm thoughts to you.

I'm just catching up....Happy Mother's day to all you ladies post and pre-baby. Dragonfly, no I've never heard of the shudders thing, but I looked it up out of curiosity and I think I remember my brother having that. I have no clue the cure. I know that bad restless leg syndrome runs in our family too, and that's neurological as well. I guess he'll grow out of it. Again, hope his surgery goes smoothly!

Hey ladies! Rooroo omg your getting close!!
I can’t believe Elijah is 1 month already. This has flew by fast. Is it just me but I still have baby fever and miss my pregnant belly. Like I am ready to get pregnant again. Maybe it’s my hormones just wanting sex other than that we are doing great. Elijah starts ECI in June. We have to see a speech therapist bc feeding has become a little struggle. He still can’t latch on so I’m exclusively pumping and trying to maintain my milk supply! Any suggestions on what I can take to help maintain my milk (pumps are getting down to 2oz) I can only get 10oz a day now. It making me stress bc all I want to do is breastfeed but without him latching to stimulate my boobs for milk it’s hard. I’m only relying on pump. Which my lactation specialist made me a daily plan. Still need help!!!! We are also still waiting in genetic testing to see how many cells/levels his TS21 falls under as well as thyroid results.
I hope everyone else is doing great!
Dragonfly- sorry to hear about little one, hope for a speedy recovery. I almost though we were having trouble with that they wanted to use silver if it had not fallen off by next visit. It finally did but we haven’t gone for our 1 month check up yet.

Beaut1ful38, I had the same issue - baby fever. I think it's all the hormones. I totally was toying with the idea of trying for a sibling for Phoebe before I got too old all the way up to about 4 months. Then she hit teething solidly and has attachment anxiety already, and I realized that it was all that prolactin flowing through me. She's almost 6 months now and I feel saner. I definitely want her to be my last. Milk supply: I went on domperidone to up my milk supply. Phoebe nurses, but my body sucks and doesn't make enough. At my BEST, I'll get 2 ozs a pumping for when she's in daycare. My daily goal is 4oz total so she gets at least one bm bottle while I'm at work. She's been supplemented with formula since birth, but I'm determined to get as much breastmilk in her as possible. I had to get the domperidone (which increases your prolactin and has less side effects than Reglan) from a Canadian pharmacy, but it's been a life saver. I highly recommend. It doubled my pumping results. Message me if you want the site.
