Hey sweetie-glad the mylanta is helping. You know, i forgot to mention, when Alexi teethes she pukes a lot. If yours always puke, maybe its even more so when teething? Just a thought.

Good luck with your decisions to make regarding the embryos.

As for your health and having another...if you love children, and you'd love to have more, go for it. I'm not sure what all health issues you may have and if you could endure another pregnancy, but if the docs say OK-then go for it!

I really want a 2nd child. Knowing the hell I went through with my pregnancy, I wonder if it's the right thing to do. The docs say it's OK... I have put the plans on hold for awhile. Need to get other things under control.

Good luck with all of your decisions, my friend.


8 Days in sunny California. :) Where in CA is he going to?


Hello, friend. when you have a difficult, multiple pregnancy, I think it is very normal to wish for one more pregnancy to fill in the gaps of what we think we missed. However, having an "oops" blessing the year after the twins were born did not fill in the gaps. Because if you do have another, you will still have your four to care for. I loved having Andrew and being pregnant with him, but it was exhausting with a 4 yr old and year old twins crawling around the place. The whole experience is a blur. Strangely enough, Jeff and I have being having some of the same conversations since we have one frozen embryo left from our twin cycle. That's right - one little lone embryo. I feel responsible for it, and probably will go back and get it. But for now, four under the age of six and one having special needs is enough for me right now. I am rambling and trying to think through my own issues, but wanted you to know that you are not alone in your thoughts, and I pray that God directs our paths.

Sorry about MC going to CA. Will you be apart the whole time you are in Canada?



Oh sweetie, GOOD LUCK! On all counts.

Tess, you have my support no matter what you do . I do understand the dilema you are feeling re: giving up these embryos, so I do know how the heart strings can be tugged at a time like this....

As you yourself mentioned, your health would not be in favour of another pregnancy, so why take that chance? Don't get me wrong, as i stated earlier I support you and love you no matter what you decide. I trust you will really consider your health in the long run :-).

You are blessed to have MC ( and his extended family loves him too ) , and you have 4 beautiful kids. Enjoy and embrace!!

Getting excited to see you all soon!
