suga- everyday after Ella gets up from her nap, I have been setting her up in either her bumbo chair or her high chair for snack. I put in front of her a suction cupped gerber bowl with some puffs cereals and some gerber crunchies (they look kinda like cheetos). I also give her a sippy cup with water. Then I kinda back off, and as much as it kills me to see the mess, I let her do her own thing and try to figure it all out. I have been doing this for like a week, and she is getting better everyday. Gosh, her fingers get so messy, but she does really well with the snacks, especially the cruchies (they are in a can in the baby food aisle). Ella also has no teeth so she munches and it breaks down in her mouth.
I am pretty strict about other foods though, like real foods or foods not made specifically for babies. I think when I go to Ella's 9 month appt, the dr will give us the all clear for trying some stuff and then I might be more comfortable. He did tell us that she could try gnawing on italian bread and eating cheerios. I think pancakes might be a safe bet too, but I just don't feel comfortable yet.
loopie- way to go pulman for eating all those things at 6 months! Ella is 8 months today, and like I said, I am still nervous about giving her real food.
Thank you all again for the baby dust! I am feeling ok, just anxious I guess. I did my first hpt this morning, just like I did last cycle, and I was actually hoping to see a negative, so I would know trigger was out of my system...but it was a faint line, so I know trigger is still there since there is absolutely no way it could be anything else. With ella, on this day after ET, my hpt was negative so I knew trigger was gone, but no such luck yet. I will try again probably tomorrow night or tuesday morning. I have started to feel a tiny bit of stretching/pulling/cramping, but I know none of it means anything, so I just keep waiting.
Of course I will keep you all updated.
