Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

MP-thinking of you and your precious little girl. Hope all is well and any hole is easily fixed and/or will close on its own. Also hoping for answers re Downs markers so that you can best prepare for your little girl's arrival.

Re: The Official TTC for 6 Months or More Thread

SB-I am so sorry you feel left behind. I felt the same way for a long time during our 4+ year TTC journey. TTC can be such a hard and brutal road.

HUff-Congrats on your little boy's arrival and I hope his stay in the NICU is short. There have been some strong little fighters born at 32 weeks to other Pricescopers. Maybe some of them will chime in with their experiences.
