washingtonda- Congrats on getting married! How exciting! I loved las vegas when I was there and I bet it was tons of fun. Oh my goodness, I checked out her website and she is gorgeous! Isn't it crazy how they are starting to look like little people instead of babies now? Thanks for thinking about me, I already did a second fresh cycle and it was a BFN. I froze 4 embryos from that cycle and was supposed to have an FET June 24th, delayed until July 22 due to e2 levels. I continued my lupron and last week found out e2 levels were due to a cyst, so I got cancelled and have to start all over again. I took my last provera pill last night and af should be here soon, then bcp's, then lupron and god willing, maybe an FET by mid august? What a roller coaster it has been so far. Are you going for number 2? Our mommy thread here is quite busy, Mellie and Corny both preggers, gecko and katie both cycling with me now.
Mellie- Evie's pics are adorable! I got ella's pics done around 7/8 months and I am so glad I did, she was just old enough to take some really good ones! Congrats on the awesome betas, can't wait to hear about u/s.
corny- congrats on a smooth u/s, I am so happy for you pregnant girsl...I can't wait to join you...here's to a smooth 9 months! (well, more like 7.5 or 8 now!)
weezie- so sorry to hear about the heat waves...i don't know how you southern girls do it. It is getting close to 85 around here and I am already dying! Oh, and I am with you on the fear of choking...I got over it by getting one of those nuby bags that you put food it and they chomp on it. It only squeezes out non-chokable food bits. You can put fruits and veggies in it, I have put pasta and ham, bagels...and I keep experimenting with it, but no chance of choking!
tina- I am jealous that noah has gotten past the army crawl, ella is still dragging her belly all over the place. She will get up on all fours, but won't move. I have heard wonderful things about the goddard school...except that it is quite pricey, at least in my part of the country it is! Oh my, slap your husbands hand for me...peanut butter...I wonder what guys are thinking sometimes...maybe it just shocks me since I am a teacher and peanut butter is the universal banned food in schools due to so many allergies.
katie- I think ella is growth spurting too. Over the past few days, she has slept a lot! She sleeps late in the morning (usually until 9-ish, but I woke her at 11 one day last week!), and gets tired way earlier than usual. I also notice she is being really fussy with food, and not eating as much...I wonder what that is about?
Well, this week I started summer tutoring. It will be a busy July b/c of it, but I just couldn't pass up that kind of money. Ella also starts summer swim lessons on Tuesday, twice a week. She really started enjoying it in the spring, so I hope she still likes it. Next weekend is my brothers wedding in upstate ny. We went 2 weeks ago for the shower/bachelorette party and ella did ok on the 8 hr drive, a bit fussy on the drive up, but better on the way back. She slept surprisingly well in the play pen too, so I hope this next trip goes as well. I am most worried about her missing naps and being super fussy. DH and I are both in the wedding party, so other people will have her for a good portion of the day. I will be relieved when it is done.
I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday weekend...enjoy the cookouts and fireworks!
