I feel bad for joining ICLW this month and then not posting much.  I'm working on a couple of entries, but let me get a quick summary up now so I have something for you to start with!

My adorable little son was born in October at 25 weeks gestation.  He was in the hospital for almost 5 months, but is now very healthy and we are extremely lucky.  My husband and I tried to conceive for 20 cycles including 3 IUIs with Clomid and finally were successful with IVF with ICSI.  We transferred 2 embryos and I am now a huge advocate of Single Embryo Transfer in most situations because of what happened to us.  (Check out my most popular posts to read about it.)

Dylan is now almost 9 months actual and 5 adjusted.  He's somewhere in the range of 13 pounds I think.  He's working on sitting right now as well as rolling more consistently.  He laughs all the time and smiles even more.

Our biggest struggles is getting him to sleep (as soon as he's asleep he sleeps really well, except for the 30 minute nap wake-up when he needs help to get back to sleep).  He had really bad reflux, but he's either outgrowing it or it is well-managed by the Prevacid he's on.  He doesn't eat super large volumes, but he's steadily increasing his intake.

We are about to start solids and are currently searching for a nanny so that's what I'm working on at the moment.

Thanks for stopping by!  I will try to get to as many of your blogs as possible! : )


  1. So I had been a lurker for about two years and your blog was one of the first blogs that I started reading. Now that I started my own blog, I am delurking and saying hi to everyone. I have followed your story and read about all the struggles that you've had. I'm so happy for you that Dylan is growing well. He's one adorable baby!
