lyly,

SOOOO glad the scan came back good!! A Boy !! Hurray. That will be one of the few boys that are born to "our group" Sorry to hear about your mom, hope she starts doing better soon.

Reshema,

I am so glad you are back in the loop. I have missed you.

Lisa,

I feel your pain about going back to work!. I am into my 5th week back and its kinda feeling normal again. Good thing I am back to work. My dh got the new today that they are going to be laid off every 3rd week. Dh says there is just no work, so who know what will happen next. He is in panic mode and its starting to rub off on me. At least I have a job and unless the County Government shuts up shop....I will still have a job.

Hi guys!
Lyly,congrats-again :D ! what a relieve! Was worth waiting.I finally could get on MSN and see your new pictures and put a few of mine own belly.We are getting big!
I got a pretty good news myself today,we had a BIG u/s also(they did it a week earlier)-the baby is still a girl :D (like 99.9% :lol: ) and everything looks very good.Got a lots of good pictures. They have only concern with a cord-for some reason it comes from membranes,not from the placenta and a little longer. The doctor said it only really matters at the time of delivery(which they want to do a c-section anyway) and in some cases the baby might grow a little slower,but so far everything looks right on schedule .They are going to monitor me closely to watch this cord thing,so I'm still on my weekly appoitments.I definetly start feeling baby move every day,not much like 3-4 times,but I can tell for sure it's her and not my imagination .And yeah,it still hard to believe we are having a girl,not that i'd be very upset if it turned into a boy from last u/s,I'm very happy and my DH just trilled,but at this point I don't really care-it's alive and doing good and we hope and pray for the happy ending every day.

Marina I am so pleased that everything is looking so great! That is wonderful news. And I am happy you are feeling the baby moving - that makes it easy to stay relaxed. I hope you are taking good care of yourself and resting lots!

Seems very quiet on this tread. I just stopped by to see how everyone is doing. Time seems to be ticking by without any dramas which is nice for a change. I hope everyone is doing OK.

AFM I am on the last leg of what seems like a very long journey!! Can't wait until the end. Not long to go now. Am starting to feel very big and uncomfortable.

I think it being quiet MUST equal GOOD things!!! :) No worries for anyone b/c you're all 'safely' lumbering through your pregnancies. I'm keeping each and everyone of you in my prayers and thoughts, until you push those little ones out!

AFM: I went to the RE on Saturday and started our 1st IUI cycle on clomid. I'm to start testing for ovulation this coming Saturday, and am debating using the opk sticks you dip in the cup AND my Clearblue Easy monitor...... OR just the opk sticks alone.

What time of day would you all say is the best time to test for Lh??

So, then, when I get my color change, we both go in for the u/s and if I've got a good follie, we're a go. I'm freaked about missing the color change, or getting it too early and having to spend more time and money than what's necessary. SO any advice you can all give me would be most appreciated.

I really miss hearing about everyone's stuff :(

Hi guys,
yeah, you right ,it's been quiet- our new mommies busy with their little ones(and not so little ones) and our preggers hiding somewhere :( .
Jamie,you are getting on a finish line :) Do you have u/s to see your little one?Did you pick out the name yet for your princess?

Nicole,I know you can test twice-in the morning(the best) and evening to make sure you don't miss the change.Or just in the morning,but then if you don't test in the evening ,you woun't know when it begun.
Good luck !!!

Lyly,how are you?
Melissa,how things with you?I hope you are doing good...

I have nothing new to report,everything is fine with me,feel good,no drama(thanks God!!!),I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow(can't believe it!).My boobs grew in one week,I had a hard time finding the right bra !We still have weekly appt., little one growing nicely.I still don't feel her kicking very often(3-4 times a day),but they explained me that my placenta right in front and works like a cushion ,so I can't really feel that much now until baby gets a little bigger.But we see her every week on u/s and she is pretty active,I just don't feel it .So,like always,praying everyday,waiting for spring to come(absolutely sick of this long winter!)
Talk to you soon!

Beth,thank you so much!!! I think it all makes the difference,when people pray for you and I pray for everyone I know need an extra help.
It's funny you mentioned that-my nurses told me the same-every time they take my chart,they pray my little one is ok before they do quick u/s :)
I hope you guys are doing good.Who stays with Angelina?

Hi Girls,

it's been quite busy between work, dropping off and picking up Zara from her sitter everyday, laundry (and more laundry - i never seem to stop washing!) and going to the gym....after Zara was born, i was 10lbs lighter than i was at the start of my pregnancy and since going back to work, i seemed to have gained it all back! However, i am determined to take better care of myself...for her sake and mine - so i joined the gym! Wish me luck...my first goal is to lose 20lbs in the next 3 mths!!! :?

Lyly and Marina - I am so glad that things are going well for both of you and your little ones.

Lyly, congrats on the boy! I hope your mom is doing better now.

Lisa - how are you? havent heard from you in a while...is evrything ok?

Ronda - sorry to hear about dh. I hope things work out...stay positive.

To all the preggies and those TTC, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Lots of love to all,
Reshma

Reshema,

Doesn't going back to work SUCK!!!! :( It seems when you work, you are always behind, especially on laundry! Working moms get to do double the work, one job at home and one job at work. Anyway, enough whining by me, at least I still have a job.

Who is watching Zara?

Good luck with the gym....it is so hard to lose the weight. I am about 3 or 4 lbs above my pre-pg weight, but things will never fit the same again! Thank god a couple of my co-workers had clothes that I could wear.....we are swaping clothes at my ofc as I am bigger than I was and Nicole is getting smaller and smaller.

Marina,

I am so glad :D everything is going well for you and your little one. I am like Beth, I check everyday to make sure no one has any bad news and keep everyone in my prayers.

Reshema & Ronda & everyone in between:

I wish you all had the blessing of knowing Ronda like I do! I am so fortunate to have a co-worker who thinks I'm getting smaller and smaller!! Meanwhile, you should see Ronda- you'd NEVER KNOW she ever had ANY kids- SHE is the one who's getting smaller and smaller!!! :) I just kept my "big" clothes a little longer than usual, I suppose!

I wanted to finally do an update for everyone with angelina she went for her 1 yrs old check up a few weeks late... she is just 20 lbs and 31inches long she is so slender and long total opposite of my first. Its weird she was over a lb bigger then my first and 3 inches longer then my first. Now she is so small compared to my first. Morgan had her 4yr old check up she is 41inches tall and 40 lbs. shes a big girl off the charts.

Angelina finally walked. She talks all the time. She learned the word NO i hate it. When she was smalled i kept telling morgan not to pick on her that she would get her back and she so does now. She pulls morgans hair all the time. If morgan takes a toy from her she says Brat. it is so funny. But they kiss n hug all the time though. They are unseperatable. They have their own rooms however have to sleep together every nite.. Either morgan clibs in her crib or angelina climbs out her crib and morgan takes her to her bed. They are best friends. Well just wanted to update everyone.
