Babyluv - Great news about your cervix and the growth of the girls! I think we both have super babies because I am guessing mine is around the 3lb mark by now. lol Alex starts school Monday too. She is all kinds of nervous and excited. She gets so nervous that she throws up each year. We had meet the teacher yesterday and when she went to bed, she got sick. Fun fun! lol She is fine, just nervous. She is such a big help that I am going to miss her when she goes to school. lol She looks at the end table and if I don't have a water, she goes and gets me one. She will ask me if I want a snack or something and make mac n cheese. She truly is a sweetheart and so glad I have such a great kid! She even helps me get up when she sees I am struggling. lol
Hazel - The nursery is adorable! I love the sloped walls, brings so much character to the room! I think you did a great job in staying cute and neutral.
Have you been having much pressure lately? I have noticed that today is much worse than any day before now. Lots of pressure that I would assume if I had one baby that the baby was dropping into position. Though because there are two in there, I have no idea if that is really possible or not?
Franca - Good to know everything is going great! Keep up the good work baby mama!
Angela - I hope those bad days are over and you can relax and enjoy. Did you get your car back? I hope someone set your inlaws straight. I would hate to hear about another ignorant outbust from the FIL.
Katie - Your nursery is gorgeous! The pictures didn't turn out big on my computer. I am thinking that the site might be screwing it up because I had the same issues with my last two picture posts. There was always one that was huge. Anyway, back to your nursery. LOVE IT! NOT too cartoon like at all! It is a nursery for f*ck sake. lol I know she is your friend but does she even have children? lol I think my nursery is too bland so I am trying to add color the best I can. I think the tree and averything looks perfect for a little girl's room. Something for her to look at and help her little eyes focus as well as something she can grow into. Thanks for the compliment about the pics.
Alex really showed her little divalicious personality in the rock horns pic. lol I gt told a lot that I look good for carrying twins, but I feel like crap. lol At least I look good I suppose? Oh and the make up... I usually NEVER wear my make up like that.
I was playing around because one of my neighbors agreed to take some artistic photos. If she actually does them that is. In professional pictures that are to be more artistic, I thought I would try a smokey eye. Alex then wantd me to put some on her so I did and that went from doing make up to taking pics of my belly, to pics of her, to pics of us. lol
Karen - So awesome you popped in and haven't forgotten us.
You know there is no way in hell we could ever forget about you. As you know, you inspired me in a few ways along this journey. I am glad to hear that your bionic cervix surgery is in place and going to happen. I think if you can go through a fresh cycle that it would be a more iron clad thing to do. I did the transfer of one embie thing before and it is so hard to have all your hopes in just one. Even though it was a beatiful hatching embie and they told me that I shouldn't need more than one since I was so healthy, it didn't work out for us that time. Of course it was different for us, it was a rescue ICSI embie and those all have less than 1% chance of working. Your one frosty would have a better chance.
A fresh cycle would also leave you likely with more frosties which means possibly a future brother or sister for the baby(ies) you will get from the fresh cycle. Yes, I am thinking very positive because it will work and you will be here again with your super duty cervix telling us you are preggers and 9 months from that you will be telling us that you had a gorgeous healthy baby! This is me visualizing.
You may have heard me say before that my moto is... Believe it into existance! I think the mind is a powerful tool. Much love dear friend! Keep in touch!
AFM - UGH! Today has been a bad day as far as pain goes. It was about the worst night's sleep that I have ever had. My stomach has just been in pain most of the day now too. I woke up this morning on my back and was in such pain but had to turn over. I just couldn't so I had to get Andrew to push me to my side which still caused pain. My belly is so heavy now that no matter which way I lay, it hurts. I almost thought I was having some real contractions this morning because of the pain. If it was, they stopped. If it wasn't, it was just the pain combined with a few braxton hicks. Lovely huh? I don't want to complain but I think I officially hit miserable. lol I will manage of course... anything for these babies. I just wish I could find a way to sleep at night and hope this pain and pressure goes away. Still not sure that my body will cooperate for the next 6 weeks. Other than that crappy news... Andrew starts his first days off today at close of business!! His leave doesn't officially start till midnight Sunday but we are hoping that all is well. Alex starts school Monday and her name should be changed within the next 2 weeks or so. The teacher has agreed that she can use her new name starting the first day of school so that it will be easier on her. She is so excited! On to the nursery. That will be more of a project than originally planned. Because of all the brown as you know I have decided to add color. I went to home depot and bought pink and blue paint. I decided the individual accent walls behind their cribs would be cute and easy to paint over when we move. Also was looking for block letters online to add to their shelves. All the letters I would need, yeah.. way too expensive. Nothing less than $130 for letters!! So... I brainstormed. lol Andrew was given some word working tools that I have been begging him to get rid of but he hasn't yet. Well, they say averything happens for a reason.
So I asked him if he can use the lathe and stuff to cut out letters to spell their names. He agreed so I also got an 8ft piece of 1x4 pine. This way the letters will be special because daddy made them and mom and big sis helped paint and decorate them. That should be a project for this weekend. Now that will be fun! After that, the room should be done... that is unless I decide to trade out the new brown panels for pink. Which I might very well do! I thought it would be good to match and stay neutral with them, but it really brings the room down. Might have to convince Andrew to go pink on that. Oh and I am still looking for a cute rug. That might take a while.
Hope everyone is well! Take care all you sexy baby mama's!
