I understand about you not caring about sleepless nights. I didn't used to. But now I am tired all the time anyway nad Mary is old enough to sleep through the night! Well I should not complain, she is a wonderful baby. She started sleeping 6 hrs a night the week we brought her home from the hospital on or two nights a week! Then by the time she was a month old, she'd sleep through the night about two to three times a week. We had some times in there where she got up three times for a while. WHen she was about 4-5 months old! But other than that, she's a good sleeper. She is also one of the happiest babies you would ever meet. It kinda makes me afraid to have another. Mary spoiled us. What will I do if we have a colicy baby?!?!?! And dh would not be able to handle that. Mary is at the perfect age for him. He likes to hold babies for a while, but then he is ready to hand them off. He adores Mary now. She is at the age she can start to really interact and play with him. About 6 months is when he really got involved and it has incleased since then. I didn't really mind, cause that was extra time I got to spend with her....Anyway I am babling....

Oh Chris, there are three of you still waiting...I thought for sure af was coming then three days later I got a pos hpt! Good luck to you, and Carrie, and Jessica....Hey we should all go together and buy stock in hpt and opk....we could be rich. I think we single handedly keep them in business. Although, you will all hate me, I have never had to use opk....I didn't even know they exsisted until I saw the ad for FR one when I was preg w/ my m/c baby......

 

Jessica - October 26

So there's 3 of us with wacky af's today....Justine - I love it out here in NY, I a__sume they have it elsewhere, but when somebody gives birth they put this huge stork on the front lawn with the information. Come next baby I want to do all the stuff that I didnt get to do with Elizah because I was alot younger and struggling. My new home is just great, thanks for asking...I fell sound asleep yesterday before dh got home from work & I never get to do that. It's just so homely and peaceful there. I cant wait to really fix it up by putting my stuff away or putting up pictures and all that good stuff. I love the fact that dh is so close and he comes home every night instead of having to stay at his brother's house because he hates the commute. Em - I always said the same thing, I was spoiled with Elizah. Never had to worry about anything with her. I always said when I had another that's when I'd really feel what it's like to have a child. I dont mind, I'm still waiting....Stock with OPKs and HPTs are definitely good $$$ right about now...Em - I never used an opk before I was pg. I only used it the month after I m/c'd to see if I in fact was Oing and back on track....I have alot of ewcm but still a neg. If no af by Thanksgiving I'm going to make a dr's appt just to get checked out.

 

Justine - October 26

Em - i'd never heard of opks either before i started reading the other threads on this site. now i feel i'm about ready to have earned a degree in ttc as i've learnt so much in the last 8 months. now i'm moving on to learning about alternative therapies for getting pg as that's going to be my next master plan for getting that so far elusive bfp. Jess - that's great that you're happy and relaxed in your new home. that's a lovely idea about putting the stork in the yard once you've had a baby. we don't do that in england which is why i got confused once when my dh was talking about it. he was telling me that he and his ex had moved into this brand new housing community and within the next 9-12 months storks started popping up everywhere as almost everyone was young couples.

 

Jessica - October 26

I cant get baby off of my mind today, its pretty weird. I can usually shake it off but not today...

 

ashley - October 26

Hello all. Thought I would pop back in for a minute and say hi. I am sooooooo tired today. I overslept because dh got home late and never set the alarm. I attempted to temp, but was in the process of jumping out of bed and runnign to the bathroom to get ready, and it read 97.5 and since it was 96.9 yesterday I don't think it was a correct reading. I am not o'ing yet so I can't believe it would be that high. I think its because I didn't do it when I just woke up... Anyway, done with clinicals for the week. My patient from yesterday got moved to the ICU beause they did a procedure on him and he didn't tolerate it well, so I got a new patient. He was cool. HOpe all is well. Jessica and Carrie, Here's to no AF and a BFP for you. I'll drink to that! Well I better get to work.

 

Em - October 26

Oh, the stork thing is a good idea. I have seen things like it before...just not a stork. It makes sense though. Justine, are things really that different here than in England? I went to Euope once. We were in France (not my favorite place) and Italy (same there, not my favorite) And Switzerland (loved it, want to go back!) And England. We didn't see much of the country, just Cantebury and London. I would have loved to see the countryside. There were a couple of things that struck me as different. One was the whole driving on the other side of the road. I Londen there were actually directiosn of which way to llok first when crossing the street....LOL. I went with a tour of Girl Scouts wehn I was in High School. It was 10 years ago now. We were fed a lto of our meals as opart of the package, and they kept trying to feed us french fris, casu ewe were american. I got so sick of French Fris. We stopped at a pizza chart one night while We were out on the town in London. The pizza had tomatoes on it! Now since then I have seen that here, but not before then. In Itally you had to ask for it with tomatoes if you wanted tomato sauce on it…I am not very familer with England. Where are you from? I am sure you have said before, but I can never remember. Have you been to London? My two week trip to Europe was fun, but I would like to go back and visit on my own. I would like to go back to Switzerland and England, see the country. Also I would like to go to Germany and Ireland. Anyway, Jessica, glad you feel all safe and secure in your new house. It’s nice to have dh home every night isn’t it? My dh takes trips in a semi truck overnight every once in a while. I miss him so much when he is gone. I could not imagine him doing it all the time. Or being in the military! Oh my that must suck for those of you in that situation…..

 

Indie - October 26

Hi all! Looks like I missed a lot of the convo. Jessica, I am so there with you. Today has been an obsessive day. But this week...this week has been CRAPOLICIOUS! The nonsense with my toolhead friend, then nonsense with toolhead recruiter, and no my donor is being a toolhead. He's a nice guy, and I totally appreciate him helping me, but I don't think that makes it ok to be a jerk. He basically blew me off yesterday. We're supposed to meet this weekend because I am due to O, but he's been doing the not returning calls, not calling when he says he will, and basically just seeming very wishy washy. So who knows...I just have this feeling like he is going to bail on me. If nothing else, it'd be consistent with how c___ppy this week has been. And to add to the fun, yesterday my friend decided to give me a lecture on motherhood. No, I don't have kids, but I was a nanny for years and have been babysitting since I was 11. It's funny, but some people are child prodigies on the piano, or can draw, or are super geniuses. for me, my gift is being good with kids. I mean, I have other friends calling ME for parenting and childcare advice! I can go to an amus____nt park with 3 kids and be completely relaxed! I used to teach kindergarden with 30 kids! I have cared for special needs kids. I have an uncanny ability to pick up a crying baby and get it to go to sleep. Heck, my friend Katie even holds her baby certain ways because I found the way the baby liked to be held and she calls it the "Ona position" (that's my name) because I figured it out. I'm single, but I am very confident that I can handle being a single parent. It's not ideal...I'd much rather meet my doctor in shining armour and have him marry me and be a stay at home mom living in the lap of luxury, but life doesn't work out that way. Anyway, my friend went off for a good hour about "How hard it is". She's got two kids, one newborn and one 2 year old. Her husband is only available to help on the weekends because he works and then goes to night school, so she keeps saying she's a "single mom"..HA! In 4 months he'll be done with school and she'll actually be able to quit her job and stay home. Oh, and her job...is 100% teleworking, pays 6 figures, and she just built a custom house on 26 acres and bought a BMW wagon. Oh, and her husband is the nicest guy EVER and looks like the actor in Lord of the Rings who played Aragorn...read: SUPER HOT. Her life is SOOOoooooooo hard. Basically, she's all drama trauma because her FIRST child was angelic. NEVER cried. And she still complained. I told her she was lucky because baby #1 was not a "REAL baby". Well, second baby is more "normal" and she is acting the drama queen as a result. She's never had to stay up all night with a colicky baby before... so now she thinks she can lecture me about how hard it is. UGH. Anyway...sorry for the rant. I just get irritated when she starts complaining about her life I just get so mad, and now she's decided it's her mission to "keep me from bringing a child into the world that I can't give everything to". Ok, I'm going to go take a nap. I'm working from home and I finished everything early so I am going to spend my lunch hour taking a cat nap because I am just so depressed and frustrated with life.

 

Jessica - October 26

Awww Indie, Sorry you feel that way today and sorry your friend is being a jerk....MEN!!!! As for your friend, some people just dont realize what they have and are always complaining. I hate when people try to talk you out of a decision that you've made. TTC and being a mother is something that you want why talk you out of it instead of helping you stay confident while you're ttc. Em - Yes its great to have dh home every night...I still miss him while he's gone but things are just so much more relaxing knowing that he's coming home at the end of the day. I'm still here waiting for a BFP or af....I cant believe that my cycle let me down this month and didnt give me either or and I'm just here in limbo WAITINGGGGGGGG.....Ugh, now I know exactly how Carrie felt when she was waiting for a/f and it never came. I thought it would be like that after the m/c but when everything was right ontime I thought for sure that it would always be that way but boy was I wrong....Ashley - thanks...I'm also very sleepy today, I'm leaving the house and waking up an hour earlier than I did when I was in my other apt. I drove 120 miles yesterday going to drop off dd @ school and then to work and then back home in the nighttime. I was exhausted and still am. I just want my body to be back to normal. Em - didnt we read about a girl getting a bfn until she was about 15days late? I sure hope that that's the case with me. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. what stinks is that I have a whole month before my next af is due. It's going to be the longest 4 weeks ever.

 

Em - October 26

Oh, Indie, so sorry you are having a rough week. I will be thinking of you. I hoep your donor snaps out of it and your friend cools it. It is hard to understand when you aren;t the one in the situation. I was very lucky to get preg the first 4 months of trying with Mary. When I lost the baby in Aug, I heard and saw so many people who got pregnant and ddin't want to be. I saw others who threw thier child off on someone else cause they were too busy for a baby. Why did I have to lose my baby, but they got to keep thiers!? I jsut didn't get it. I am sure you all feel the same way. I had a co-worker who had a really hard tiem getting pregnant. She finally did thanks to AI. She is now mother to 6 1/2 year old twin gilrs. (faternal twins) She said that ehen her and her dh were trying, was when that mother pushed her car into the lake with her kids in it and then went on the news pleading for her kids back, when all along she knew that she killed them...My cousin also had AI done while on alot of fertilty drugs and she has quads! 4 boys! THey are four now. My dad's cousin had IVF done and gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl, about a month after I had Mary. and of all things she named them will and grace. I like both names, but come on, together? They always say Grace's name first, I wonder why....Anyway, sorry I got off subject. I was trying to make Indie feel better and I just suceeded in ranting for a while. Anyway, I hope Indie wakes up form her nap to a whole new outlooka nd friends who are much more suportive....

 

Jessica - October 26

Em - Did you ever get a UTI when you were pg with Mary, your other baby or this one so far? I had one when I was pg with Elizah and got another when I was pg with my m/c baby. Now I feel like I'm getting another one. Dr's told me that its from my body releasing the pg hormone etc...Now I'm starting to think again. I'm having alot of pressure around where my bladder is.

 

Em - October 26

Jessica, I read on another forum on this site about a lady who was 17 weeks late and kept getting bfn on her hpt. The dr refused to do a blood test. After several drs and clinics, she finally got an u/s. She was 15 ½ weeks pregnant! She kept having neg hpt though! By the time she sound out for sure, she didn’t even fit into her jeans anymore. She was watching what she ate and everything. She would have been real surprised when she felt the baby kick had she let the dr keep giving her the run around. She had a baby girl the end of September….

 

Carrie - October 26

Good day Ladies! Indie - I am so sorry you're being treated like that by your friends and donor..the nerve of some people! I know what you mean about ppl trying to tell you how hard parenting is, I've got a few in my family. When my ys got preg our aunts kept telling her how hard it was and how the baby isn't like a doll and blah blah blah. My ys has been around babies all her life! She would come w/ me on babysitting jobs, when my os had her son we all helped her raise him (she was still at home). There were many times when we'd watch our nephew for my sister and he was still...as my os friend says, a freshie! lol. (meaning he was just days old) My ys has been around babies all her life and she does a great job with them, I think she can handle having her own. I hope I don't get the same talk from my mil! She seems to think I can't handle kids on my own, ha! I've been babysitting since I was 12! Anyway, with you being a nanny and after all that you have shared with us, I think you're well more than ready to be a Mommy. I really hope that happens for you Indie, you would be such a great Mommy. As for me, I'll update first - last night I went to the bathroom & when I wiped there was was blood on the paper and cm too. When I went to the bathroom a few hours later there was blood again, only this time brown and more cm. Now this morning I went to the bathroom and there was nothing! Nothing at all! I am really hoping that was ib and not the start of af...someone tell me it as ib...calm me down. I was so ready to test when I woke up, I had my hand on the drawer handle where the test was and I was about to pull the drawer open when DH rolled over, he was facing me after he rolled. I didn't know if he was awake or not so I just got up and left the room, without the test.

 

Jessica - October 26

Em - I agree, you are so supportive...I know the Will & Grace thing is kinda corny but it is still kinda cute. By the time they get older only our generation will probably get it anyway. I really cant take this "not knowing" the suspense is killing me, I'm going to call the dr and speak to him in a few and ask him what he thinks I should do. Maybe I'll go during lunch tomorrow and get a bloodtest done so I can find out what's really going on with my body. My emotions are all out of wack today....I need to get back on track here.

 

Jessica - October 26

Carrie - you poor thing, the suspense must be driving you insane...I sure hope that it was IB...Im feeling much more pg now then I did with the baby that I m/c'd. Em - Are you serious??? 17 weeks with a BFN...I think I'd go crazy. Good luck if you decide to test before af is due...I cant wait to hear about another BFP...I guess last month we were spoiled when we got 2, this month we got Em. and now all these pending BFM's are driving me crazy.
