Hi Everyone! I have been reading, but haven't had time to write.

Corny - I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I hope he mends quickly. I loved seeing your u/s pics on your website! Sure does make it real! I am so happy for you.

Michele- I am bummed about your FET cycle. That is really discouraging. Try to stay focused though and I am sure you will finally suppress. Sounds like Ella is doing great though. I am planning on the duo of cakes for Declan's birthday too. I want him to really get into his cake and enjoy it. Can you believe they are almost a year old?!

Katie - I hear you on the weight thing. I haven't lost an ounce since I stopped breastfeeding. It is just really hard. Glad you worked out when to do your FET. You definitely want a calm period of time for that process.

Suga - Hope the girls had a great first birthday! Way to go on the teeth! Declan now has four - two bottom and two on top and I think there are more coming. He is very drooly, fussy and chews on everything. He looks pretty cute with his little teeth though!

Mellie - Declan isn't too big on table food too. Worse still is the stage 3 baby foods. He gags. He will eat cheerios, yogurt melts, bread, cheese though. Go figure. I guess it's the texture.

Weezie - Yippee!!!!!!! I am so happy for you! I wish that could happen for us, but it's not in the cards. Sorry about the evil step kids, but this gives you all the more reason to be happy.

Rio - I would give your bean anything he wants. As long as he continues to grow I am sure it is fine. They go through phases too. Perhaps he will like veggies later. Declan used to love bananas but now won't open his mouth for anything if he smells them. Strange, but I guess it's their way of asserting a little independence. I think I read somewhere that you have to offer foods at least 10 times for them to take to it. We try new foods and if he doesn't like them, wait a week or two and try again. Sometimes it works and sometimes not.

Well, I had my FET transfer today. We chose to transfer only one blast as we really didn't want to risk twins. We still have three blast frozen for later if needed. I really hate the valium I had to take prior to transfer and I am left feeling foggy and headachy but all went extremely well. DH is taking care of the baby until we both go back to work on Monday. My RE doesn't want me lifting and Declan weighs 25 lbs sooooo it is hard. Corny, Mellie, Weezie - what are you doing about the lifting?

Hope eveyone is well and happy. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Weezie - My sweetie gags sometimes on the stage 3 foods, too. As for the lifting, my mom traveled to Colorado with us for the IVF, came back with us, and stayed with us until I got the positive beta. She did all the lifting. I got slightly, and irrationally, jealous b/c she and my little Evie bonded so well. I was really grateful to have her, though. And now Evie's a Mommy's girl again. :D

Rio - Yep. PUPO. But I am a bit discouraged. I just don't feel the same as with my BFP with Declan. I am also getting VERY nauseated from the meds this time and the PIO shots are leaving me with bruised and lumpy hips. I am using a different pharmacy this time so perhaps the oil is different. I will mention it to my RE if I am indeed preg. If not, it's only a few more days. My beta is Sunday (but won't be read until Monday) and I think I may POAS on Saturday since DH has to go to work on Sunday morning and won't be back until later in the week. We plan to just keep doing the FET cycle until we are out of frosties to see if we can get one more sibling for Declan. If not, I am not going to do another fresh cycle. We will just have to be ok with him being an only child.

Happy Birthday to all the August babies!!!!!! I hope they all have wonderful celebrations.

Declan is doing great. Almost walking. It is so cute to see him stumble about! He is working on his 5th and 6th teeth so he has been a bit cranky. He still eats like a champ and is sleeping well. He is just hours of fun!!! I will post to photobucket soon.

Hope everyone is well!

Congrats weezie how exciting!!!! Good luck Gecko PUPO!! Hang in there CT. I can only imagine how frustrating this has been for you. It seem like everyone is doing really good otherwise. Glad to hear the prego mammas are doing well. It's crazy that our babies are getting so big. Parker is into EVERYTHING. He's starting to get himself a little attitude. Rio we man be cycling together since we are pushing it to early in the year.

Hey ladies!

Well I finally got some good news from the clinic today. Looks like my e2 is down to 46 (they want below 50) and if all goes well at an u/s in the morning, I should be starting estrace and getting ready for sept. FET! It will probably be 3rd week in september, but I am just glad to hear good news for once.

And we made it through Ella's b-day party yesterday. It was exhausting! So much work, but I know one day she will look back at pics and know how special we made the day for her. The weather was gorgeous for a luau in the park. She got so many presents even though I said no presents! It was like christmas in summer! I spent all day reorganizing my house to fit everything. And of course she made a mess of her cake. Here is the link to the youtube video:

I am also working on uploading pics to her website now, they should finish uploading tonight, so check back and take a look:

Her real birthday is wednesday. DH and I saved her gift from us for wednesday and my mom is bringing her some chocolate pudding that day too. I have a cute little birthday onesie for her to wear. OMG, I can not believe she is almost 1!

I am so glad to hear everyone is doing well.

Gecko, my fingers are crossed for you...I am sending you lost of sticky dust. I can't believe declan has so many teeth already. Ella just got her first one a week ago, and it is still not even fully out, just peeking through.

katie- That is funny that parker has an attitude, ella is starting to get one too, she pouts when she doesn't get her way or I tell her no.

Ok, gotta run, but I will check in again soon.

Hi Ladies,

BFP for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yesterday's beta was 90. I go back for to see if it doubled tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed....... I can't believe I am doing this again. I will breathe easy after I see the heartbeat on u/s.

Michele - Glad Ella's birthday was a success! God they are so much fun at this age! Declan entertains me everyday.

CONGRATULATIONS GECKO!!!! Wow!!!

CT - ella looks too cute!

Katie - it will be nice to have someone familiar to go through it again, you are doing a fresh cycle?

Our clinic doesn't do 5 day transfers, just 3 days, of course I am already nervous about how many to transfer! I need to relax! ;)

I can't believe our babies are turning one!

Bean took two steps yesterday at daycare - I cried cause I missed it!
