Welcome to all you inspirational, gorgeous, warm hearted ladies.

 

Tory1980 - April 16

Hello lovely ladies. Today I opened my eyes to brilliant sunshine. I won't say i woke up since I have been up all night. Logan is coughing his head off and Joshua isn't well either. thye joys of children. It seems like they have just been sick since last September. Honestly the better weather had better bring good things. Thank you for the compliments but I find it hard to believe I am an inspiration to anyone but it is good to be appreciated anyway! LOL! Stef, money is ALWAYS an option when it comes to kids (usually the lack of!) but if you can juggle some things around and get away for a few days it will do you the world of good. It won't be long before you won't have a break at all and now is the time to take it if you can. kathy, I missed the belly get-up. Please tell me you weren;t laughing so hard as to not get photos. I bet it was hilarious. Now tell him to wear it all night too and see how comfy he gets! Lori, bad on the weeding, good on the boys doing it for you. Bad on the contractions but good on letting go a little more than usual. It's hard to do so as no one actually getsd it quite right. I am missing people I know (as usual lately) but I am thinking of you all. Have a great day. Off to feed Mini B___h before she sucks Bob's finger off his hand!

And my typing is ATROCIOUS on this bloody stupid keyboard! Please let a laptop arrive today on the wings of little angels. Actually Parcel Force would do but still waiting to hear if Insursance will pay out or not!

Hi Girls! i have my appointment in a little bit but wanted to say hi! CYNN-so glad to here from you! Glad all is well. LESLIE-your vacay sounded nice and relaxing! LORI-don't feel bad about paying someone to do the yard work, relax and enjoy not having to do much! TORY-I think your positiveness (is that a word?!) can get you and your family through pretty much anything!!! MIA-glad you are keeping a diary of everything. It will be good to look back on! Okay, i got to run! Sorry i didn't get everyone but I don't want to be late!!! I'll post when i get back!

Good luck Allie on the appointment! I hope the dr. has some ideas today. Girls who've had their babies...is it normal to not get another u/s after 20 weeks? I talked to the nurse yesterday and since I had her on the phone I asked her if I'd get another scan before birth and she said most likely not. :( I'm kind of bummed because I thought they had to do one to check if baby is in position at least! I decided against the 3D one because we really can't afford it, but now am trying to figure that out again.

 

april baby - April 16

Allie – I hope all goes well with your appointment today!!!! Stef – I would think you could ask them to do another scan. But I haven’t gotten that far so I am not sure. Tory – you are juggling a lot right now but you do seem to be strong and positive. Keep that up and all things will fall into place. As for me af is definitely here and it is heavy I hope this will only last for only one or two days. Well ladies off to my training cla__s for RE. Have a great day!!! Jenna~

 

FrancesM - April 16

Hey gals! Made it to Curves today woo hoo! Will probably skip tomorrow since I am not on carpool duty. I will sleep in...Sorry I was not real chatty yesterday, I was just tired and my sinuses were dragging me down! I wanted to lay down for an hour and the dumb a__s dogs kept barking and I was on the verge of tears. I just needed to rest! I slept pretty good last night. 2 pillows under my head and one under my belly. Just to recap my Dr appt. Everything was great. He was active, heart rate 140. They did however tell me that I needed to drink more water. I was like wtf! I drink 6-10 8oz gla__ses a DAY plus 1 Diet soda, unsweetened decaf tea at dinner, milk and on occasion orange juice! Do they want me to drown? Tory, you are an inspiration. You have 4 children, Bob, plus the dog and cat and you have everyone in line all the time plus cook and clean etc...Stef, I hope you guys can get up a few bucks to head out for a couple of days. I need a break too. Allie, good luck at your appt today. I hope we will hear some good news. Jenna, stay strong sister! You are not having a full flow right? Maybe bean was just getting settled? We will know more tomorrow. Hang in there 1 more day...Katie, soon you will be back in the ttc game and we will be here with you all the way. Lori, I am glad you are going to finally take it easy! Not much longer and Little B will be here...Leslie, so glad you guys were able to get away for a few days. Nice! I can't not believe that we will know what you are having in a week. I think Girl. I do not do predictions like Robyn but I just have a feeling. CSCindy, your appt is coming up too right? Can't wait to hear good news! Cyndi, are you ready to jump back in the game? I am glad you are more settled in Fl now. I hope things move along smoothly. Hi Cynn, glad to see you and know that Jazlyn is doing well. Mia, you are so positive about everything no matter what it is. Thanks for that. Kristin, where have you been? Robyn? Jen? Bueller? (ha ha I could not resist) Good morning to everyone else I have missed. I am still stuffy today. I am going to take a Claritin, maybe it will help...

 

FrancesM - April 16

Jenna, we posted at the same time. I am sorry that af is here full on...Chin up ok? We are here with you and for you!

 

BriannasMummy - April 16

Stef: Unfortanately with a lot of doctors that is the norm. They only provide one u/s at the 20 week. A lot of the doctors are skilled enough to kind of squeeze the bottom of your belly with one hand to know if the baby is head down or not. Sucks! ALLIE: Hope ur appt goes well today!! Jenna: Im so so so sorry that everything went down the way it did. Its going to happen.. it will.. just keep believing in that! TORI: Anyone would be stressed with all of the goings on at your house. Even supernanny!!!!!! I doubt that you have PND but I do believe youre stressed to that max.. and as you said time will ease that. Good job for keeping your chin up! LORI: I just checked out your pics.. they are soo cute.. Its so funny to see "sherri oteri" pregnant..hehehehe. Now get will in there.. get out your pom poms and it would sooo be saturday night live gets knocked up!! hehe. FRANCES: Im glad that you got some much needed sleep. Sorry about the stuffiness.. im stuffy too.. i got it from Bri.. Bri gave it to us all except DADDY!! Katie: So sorry about AF.. but happy you decided to stay. Cyndi: I think its now going to be easier for you. Even last month you were still getting settled and all that good stuff, this month is going to be a good go at it! KATHY: I love your belly pictures.. you didnt get any shower pics from the family baby shower? Sorry I havent been around as much as I like. Kayden is a smart baby.. For instance if I give him a bottle at 3.. he knows EXACTLY when its time for another. Like last night we were in the car.. I said 8 minutes to 6.. kayden will be crying in 8 minutes.. and Joe said.. "no he wont" sure enough in 8 minutes he was crying. Same as this morning.. hes right down to the minute. He also knows if ive put more in his bottle. I tried to fill the bottle to the top.. which is about an extra 1/2 of an ounce or an entire oz.. He will stop promptly after he has had his 4oz. There is no getting in even one more sip.. LOL..It amazes me. Hes sleeping in his swing right now.. im going to put the baby gate up in ka__si's room.. so I can keep her contained while I have a shower.. this hair needs to look pretty today.. instead of this ugly ole ponytail.. YYYUUCCCKKKK.. Talk to you soon! ~Kristin~

 

AllieP. - April 16

Hi Girls, okay well my appointment was sort of disappointing but I sort of expected everything the doc told me. He did another scan and there are still “unwanted” things up in my fanny pack! LOL (I had to throw that in!) Anyway don’t let my laughter belie the fact that indeed I’m quite upset. Based on my FF chart I showed him and the fact that I did have a 19mm follie last week I did ovulate. He took another hcg and progesterone level. Unfortunately my hcg has remained the same around 7 and my progesterone was over 20 he said which confirms ovulation (DUH!). That being said until I get my AF which should be a week from today he can’t give me any concrete answers. He is hoping that what we are seeing is indeed leftover tissue which will come out with AF. He doesn’t want to fool up there until I get an AF! On CD1 I am supposed to call and they will do an u/s to see if “it” comes out. If not than God be with me I will have to do ANOTHER yes I said another HSG. I thought one was bad enough that I had last fall but since I did have the D&C since then he will have to repeat it if my AF doesn’t clear the “remains” out. I am praying that my AF does clear it all and my lining returns to normal. Based on my estrogen and progesterone levels and the size of my follie I do appear to have a “normal” ovulation. Its my lining that is F’ed up at the moment. Of course I’m thinking of all the what if’s. What if my doc screwed up the D&C and caused scarring or something like that? Please girls pray that my AF clears everything. DH and I decided to go home this weekend to get my mind off of everything. I think I need to go home!!! JENNA-I’m hoping AF will be over quick for you and you can move on!! FRANCIS-maybe you should treat yourself to some R&R and get a room at a nice hotel for a couple days! How great would that be?? STEF- I would probably request an u/s! There is no reason why they wouldn’t do one for you! KRISTIN-sounds like Kayden is doing wonderfully!!! Okay girls, I’m sort of bummed so sorry for all my maladies.

 

cyndilea1973 - April 16

ALLIE--That just plain sucks! I am also hoping af clears out your uterine lining and you can get on the ttc boat. It is encouraging to know you have good cycles, I bet there isn't scarring, but it sure makes you want to kick the doc in the bum who did your d&c for leaving you in a mess! I also hope you don't have to another hsg (I also had one last fall, and it was NO fun), but IF you do, it does clean the pipes so to speak. I know I can be overly positive, but it seems to be the best way to cope with ttc and all the stumbling blocks we encounter on our way. Frances and Kristin--I think you ladies are right in that at least THIS month I am feeling more relaxed being in FL with my DH. I have been fending him off with a stick the past week as I have been SO sick and not in the mood for love (poor guy), I am on CD6, so I will have to get in the mood by next week . LESLIE--What a nice vacation! Wisconsin is such a nice place , we used to go to the Wisconsin Dells alot for summer trips. I have been slack on putting my temps in on FF, I guess I better get to it! I almost (ALMOST) feel like not charting my temps this month and just winging it. I know that I usually O around cd16 and have an average LP of 13 days..maybe if not plotting and charting will work this time? BUT I AM ADDICTED.hee hee. Please give me strength! +++Cyndi+++

 

cyndilea1973 - April 16

maybe NOT plotting and charting.. yikes, bad typing

 

ZenGirl - April 16

ALLIE- i am bummed that you still have the lingering issue but i think it is wonderful news that you are, in fact , ovulating and with a good follie... i will send positive vibes your way that af clears up the leftovers....CYNDI- you better get your b___t better by next week!! and have you considered taking b6 to lengthen your LP by a day or 2?? i think that would definatley help you..but i am no doctor!! ...speaking of doctors... i had my 2nd ultrasound this morning and we have a heartbeat! it was 140 and she just kept using the word "Perfect". the baby measured 6 weeks 5 days (i am 6 weeks 3 days today) and we go back next Friday to look again! i put a new u/s pic up on my piczo page...

 

Tory1980 - April 16

Good evening wonderful ladies. Stef, I was scanned later in the pregnancy with all of mine (around 34 weeks) with the almost term and term pregnancies to check size of baby as they were inducing Logan and Imogen due to the Cholestasis and Joshua was on Due date. Matthew came early but I was scaneed 3-5 times a week with him until I left Ireland to go back to England. As a rule they won't do another scan after 20 weeks or so as positioning etc can be determined on palpatation of the stomach. Sometimes they will scan if the 'lie' of the baby is in question or if they suspect a breech or transverse lie. They will also do one if movements are slowing or few and far between and sometimes if you think your waters have gone. You are being treated like a 'normal' pregnancy so be glad for that but I am sure if you requested another one your doctor may be good enough to do it. Krisitin, I very much doubt it is PND either. I am not saying it isn't going to affect me as it can affect ANYONE but I really just think things are a little stressed out right now and once I have all my little eggs lined up in their neat little rows everything will be fine again. Sleep would be good and I think everything will then take on a much rosier glow. Allie, poo on the scan. Good news though that you are indeed ovulating. Half the battle has been met but I would imagine the waiting is driving you insane. What happens if you don't have AF? With the hCG staying higher than it should be it could stop it from happening. If that is the case will he do the surgery if the b___h doesn't show when she should? Frances, good God! Where has the time gone? Six months! WOW!!!!!! Looking pregnant yet? I still say you are having us one except for those scan pictures! I STILL can't get onto the d__n Piczo site. I HATE Bob's computer! However I bet you are all gorgeous and those of you that are pregnant are glowing from the inside out and those that aren't are just gorgoeus with those figures! Lori, stretchmarks - my Midwife told me to think of them as a positive thing. She said they were a 'map of the journey you and your little one has taken in order to bring them safely into the world'. I thought that was quite sweet. I only ever got stretchmarks with Joshua but he planted himself low down on my stomach and didn't move for the entire pregnancy plus I was ENORMOUS! A beached whale could have hid behind me with absolutly no problems. I joked with him that if I stood just right I could have my own lunar eclipse. It was HORRIBLE but there you have it. It was my own d__n fault anyway I just COULDN'T stop eating. I was hungry all the time but it was just for food in general. He still eats like a bloody horse to this day. Anyway, off to buy little bro his birthday present which none of us had planned for. How inconsiderate for him to show up unannounced for his Birthday. He is 25 tomorrow. Scary biccies! We are buying him an iPod Nano V3 so not only has he fleeced us into buying him something but we are also skinned into the bargain! Bloody expensive he is! LOL! It's worth it just to have him home. It is going to be awful saying bye to him again but he should be home for his birthday. We were all really sad that he would be spending it alone as such. He has made friends but it isn't the same thing. We are all quite close and I hated the thought of having him all the way over there on his lonesome. Granted my bank account might be happier if he disappeared back over there again! Night ladies. Talk tomorrow.

 

FrancesM - April 16

Woo Hoo Jen!! SO glad to hear the good news! Nice strong heartbeat too! I am so happy for you. Again, I am not Robyn (Or Cheri) but I think girl for you! A sweet little angel girl that looks like her mommy! Congrats again!!

 

FrancesM - April 16

Tory, you are so funny. I have gained 16 pounds so far. My Dr said that she is fine with that. I started out chunky. I have been looking for info on the net about a month to month gaining schedule but have yet to find one. I really think going to Curves is helping. The girl there today could not believe I was just shy of 6 months, she could not even tell. She gained 80 with her little one. If I get the chance, I will take a pic and email it to you since you can not get on Piczo. I am getting more shaped but it still looks fat to me! Sometimes I look down and go d__n, I am fat, then I think, oh yea, I am pg! As for your "mental state" I think you are doing an excellent job with your family and lack of sleep can be a issue for anyone, not just a mom...So they need to buzz off and leave you alone!

 

stefkay - April 16

hey girls! Thanks for the input on the u/s...I'll probably just go to my appt. next Friday and if everything seems ok and feels right then I will make a decision about the 3D after I ask the doc if I get one more scan. I do kind of want to have the surprise of seeing her when she is born since I already know the s_x, ya know? We'll see. I mainly want a scan just to be sure everything is ok and she's not in some weird position with the cord or anything (I know I need to stop with this cord business really). JEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAYYYAYAYAYAYY Awesome :) I'm so glad to hear the news and it sounds like you got a healthy one on the way. Measuring ahead AND a good heartrate :) woohoooo!
