Re: xpost: Anemic mamas what do you take?

I took OTC iron and then prescription ones, and they didn't help at all. I got very anemic during my twin pregnancy. At the end they had me go in a few times for IV iron and that really helped! I...

Re: Does Follistim improve egg quality

I dont know the answer to your question, but I know it worked for me when Clomid and Femara did not. From my understanding it is better because the theory behind clomid and femara is that they trick...

Re: Size newborn clothes question

As of last Thursday, Kevin is 8lbs and 21in and newborn are snug on him. They pretty much fit perfectly, which means he probably won't be wearing them in a week or so. Colleen on the other hand is...

Re: How are the new dads doing?

One thing that I learned when I had my first is you have to cut him some slack. Do not lord over him and point out every thing he does "wrong" or not the way you'd do it. While first time moms might...
