If this is worrying you, you should call your doctor's office and ask them. I think the biggest risks of listeria are miscarriage or early labor which would occur while you still have it so you don't have to worry about those. Yes, there is some risk that the baby could have been affected but I read a lot of women who have it their babies are just f...

I have been having braxton hicks a lot. I had contractions so bad at 25 weeks that my doctor sent me to the hospital. They had to give me a shot to calm my uterus and get the contractions to stop. If you are having around 4-6 within an hour you should call your doctor's office to see if they want you to be checked out. At this early stage of pregnancy yo...

I didn't have to pay for mine since insurance covered it. I believe that the price can vary greatly depending on how many ultrasounds the doctor does and whether you do clomid or injections. The injections themselves are very expensive. Your best way to get an idea of your price is to check with your clinic. Some clinic's will give discounted prices...

I did 2 IUI's using clomid and then a trigger shot. My 1st IUI I got pregnant but unfortunately lost the baby due to a blighted ovum. My 2nd IUI I got pregnant but it was ectopic. So IUI worked for me but I was just very unlucky. Your chances of getting pregnant are greater with IUI with injections, but so are you chances of multiple births. I am pregnan...

These twins are my 2nd and 3rd babies and they are both team blue so this makes 3 boys for me. My due date is Nov 16 but my dr said they probably won't let me go past Nov 2.

I'm so sorry your little one isn't cooperating for the gender checks. I haven't had this happen to me, but a friend of mine did. She was pregnant with twins and her boy twin was not cooperating. With twins you get a ton of ultrasounds and it was only about a month before they were born that her little boy finally decided to reveal himself. I ho...

I'm doing good. My twins are growing nicely. I found out they are both boys. I feel extremely huge already and I still have over 11 - 13 weeks to go. How are you doing?

Yes I believe they call that pregnancy brain. My husband makes fun of my pregnancy brain all the time.
It is possible to make it to 33 weeks working, but with twins we are higher risk of having to stop working sooner. Some good advice to follow would be to keep well hydrated while working, never stand when you can sit, and try to stay as stress-free as possible. Of course watch for any signs your body may give you that you might be doing too much and then try ...

Thank you for your helpful advice. I was also thinking double electric pump would be my best bet.
