Hi! I realized that after many of us have gone through this journey together and finally have our beautiful babies via DE or DS IVF…we really do not have a thread to discuss milestones or issues that may be around our babies. We can go to the regular AFTER thread, but I think it would benefit us to continue to share with those who have had a similar journey. This thread is not ONLY for people who have had success yet…this can be for others too who may have children already, or the general knowledge of babies, some of us might be lacking. A couple people thought this was a good idea so let’s see how it goes.
AFM, my little one is almost five months old and I can not believe that time has flown so quickly. She is now 15.7 pounds (70 percentile) and in the 80 percentile in height. Her head is still measuring only 35 percentile…is that weird? She does seem to have such an adorable little face. Doc says she is fine and not to dwell on this. She is amazing in many ways, sits up when propped up, holds her bottle in a few positions, laughs and tries to talk, rasberries A LOT, drolls a lot! Their are two things that worry me and probably should not. Her little arms shake a lot when she gets excited or reaches for me. My DH calls her “zombie baby” because her arms shake and she loves to lean forward and gum us. LOL Doc says they are discovering their strength etc. Odd, do other babies do this? Also she can turn from back to belly to the right and had done it to the left…only a couple times. Still, she can not roll back to back once on belly though. Crazy thing…she is already trying to crawl. I assume it is normal for some babies to miss milestones and move on to bigger one, right???
Share with me your insight ladies. To those with wee little ones, age and milestones shares would be great!
