It's great to hear from you!!! WOW, as you said things move really fast, I'm so happy for you!!!!! Oooooh I hope the adoption process will be joyful and exciting!!! No needle in sight, it's a plus!
I hope you'll update often so I know what's happening for you guys! You're the living proof that, when you really want something, you will get it. You're meant to become a mommy again, and it will be granted to you very soon!
As for your question, Jérémie was born on April 27th. THANKS for the update on Aunty, I'm SO HAPPY for her!!! Where are the little girls from? Tell her hi!!!!!
Miracle: Any news dear? Cake decoration???? Ooooooh if you have tips I'm in. I spent half an hour watching cake decoration tutorials on youtube and I had a blast!!!! Two of my friends are engaged and I'm, crossing my fingers that they'll think of me for the cake or the whole banquet. How are your studies going dearest? Are you still passionate about law? Have you found a type of law that you like more than others? How are things on the tmt front? I can't wait to have news!
Lee Hi dear!
Oh wow, I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. *HUGS* Is she hospitalized? Is she okay now? Does she live far from you? Wow, it must be a lot of stress, I can only imagine. My oldest grandma is 85 and she lives 3 hours from here. If she fell... *shudders* I mean, even if my family is there and would take care of her, I would still feel the distance and very much wish to be there. She's very lucky to have you and I really hope you can organize things for her in order to get some peace of mind about the situation, and improve hers of course. And I hope the little buggers cooperate!
Vicky: so, what did the test say? And what's the next step? Oh, I really hope things will work out for you. Sometimes, all you need is a little push. I'll keep fingers and toes crossed that Clomid does the trick.
Rachel: so sorry to hear you're still depressed! And Daisy! It must drive you crazy to see her refuse solids and still be on a full nursing schedule... *HUGS* I really hope the ped can help. My best friend's baby had weight problems and they struggled for a few months, but he's very healthy now, he came out of it. No baby will starve him/herself for long; I'm sure you'll find a way. Hang in there!!!!!
Carolyn: Reading your post made me all warm and fuzzy inside!
:D I mean, I can understand how tired you must be, and how two straight hours of sleep is a luxury right now. But through it all, I feel such a wonderful warmth, love, care, and tenderness emanate from your post that I can't help but think how lucky your little boys are to have a devoted mom like you. *HUGS* Sometimes you think you can't go on like this and a minute later they remind you why you'd do anything for them, and the energy comes back! How is DH adapting to the twins? Do you get some help from family members or friends that live close?
Hope: you and I seem to be alike in a few ways. I, too, dream about the day I'll relocate closer to my family. Our relationship has been difficult for decades (not with everybody of course! some of them), but the arrival of my son made everybody drop their defenses and, just like that, we changed our relationship completely, for the better! Things became easy! Hehehe I understand how it is, to make somewhat unpleasant choices because you want DH to be happy and not rush him into a big decision. Hey, if you wait until he retires, that means you guys can move without worrying about him finding a new job, that's great!
I'm sorry to hear MS is so bad: have you considered taking Diclectin? It made a WORLD of difference for me with my last pregnancy. The pharmacist told me it's completely safe, lots of research done and it's made with vitamins and minerals so nothing harmful for the baby. It does cause fatigue, though, I could barely stand up at the end of the day sometimes. But I'd choose that over MS anytime! As for taking care of your DS AND dealing with pregnancy symptoms, all I can say is... think about how each day that passes is one LESS day of fatigue and MS before the second trimester kicks in!
Can't wait until your ultrasound; keep us posted!!!!
Sorry, I've been MIA, sorry! Small panic with the daycare, but everything is okay now. She refused to take Jérémie after his first morning (she felt overwhelmed with two newbies and, even though we booked him in December, and knowing I'm going back to work on April 1st, she just said she couldn't take him!!!!) but she changed her mind the next day because she reorganized the daycare schedule, realized she had panicked and spoken too soon, and after a long discussion, we decided to give her a second chance. WHEW. Jérémie is fine when I'm not there, but he started to realize he's missed me when I come back to pick him up. I'm not worried; he LOVES being with other babies and children, so before long he won't want to leave!
I also had an evaluation done by a nutritionist and I am now on a very precise "diet". I realized I was cutting down too many things, putting too much pressure on myself to do cardio, and she gave me tips to prevent hypoglycemia. Once you learn to calculate your portions and organise them throughout the meals and snacks, it's easy. And it works! I've lost 3.4 pounds in a week! Yay!
Cutting down my sugar intake dramatically was hard the first few days, but now that the detox is complete, I actually taste sugar much better and I rediscovered the pleasure of food! And I still get to eat peanut butter every morning, yaaaay!
Okay, way past bedtime, time to go to bed! Jérémie has the flu for the first time (yup, didn't waste any time, started daycare only last week!!!) and I hope he'll get a good night's rest... and us too! He's been Mr Grumpy all day, it's really not like him!
