Hi everyone -
Sorry I've been MIA, I've been alone with DS all week since Chris has had a loong schedule this week and by the time he's in bed I'm too wiped out to do anything. After a few days of all me all the time I have to admit I wonder if I'm crazy for wanting to try this again and if it works how will waddling around after a seriously active toddler be?
- Aww, honey how will going back to work be? Its nice to get out of the house a little, but I'm sure the first days of leaving Mister J. will be so hard on you. I may not be around as often as I used to be but I could never not check in on you all- especially to see you get your DS a sibling in July! I'll be rooting you on as always! So was I right? Having the little guy home makes all those bfn calls worth every bit of what we went through, doesnt it. Thrilled for you mama!
- Aww,I love how you told everyone! That was such a sweet way to do it! You must have been released to your OB today! Yay for that ( and for miracle babies!) I love your ticker and and am so happy that you feel like its real now and not as surreal as it must have been. Ok, so Mady? take it easy on mama, ok? A little nap each day will make you feel better.. and mommy too, lol.
- The appt went well, he was 30lbs and 32" so that put him in the 95% for height and 75% for weight, although I'm not sure how considering the boy never wants to eat. We've been having issues and if Ryan doesnt eat what we eat I've caved in and given him baby food, and the Ped said to knock that off right now and if it takes a week of him refusing our food, then so be it. UGH, this isnt easy to watch at all! Is your DS a good eater? I know I fed into his picky eating patterns by letting this go on for so long and and now to try and get him to eat new things is making this a looong week. He was teething molars for the past month, so I've been really lax about pushing him to try more foods - and now I regret it. We're ready to start sz 5 pampers as soon as I get rid of the maybe weeks worth of sz4's. He has a tiny hiney, I think, lol - so we were able to wear 4's until now. pj's are a 3T which are getting tight now and shoes I cannot keep up anymore, as soon as we buy them, they're too small, the new pair of sneakers are a tiny bit big at a sz 7 - this boy has some big tootsies.. Yippee for starting your stims tonight!! I'm thinking many healthy eggies thoughts for you
Wow, 1200 posts, for as much sleep as i've lost reading this forum, I would never have survived ivf without this place and the amazing ladies support here. I'm thankful to have this place - and you all
- Yay for AF cooperating!! now, no teasing there and move into full flow, ok? Darn these AFs always wanting to act up when we're ready to cycle
Wow, a clinic that actually answers their phone?! You mean an actual person answers AND helps you with your questions?? What a surprise that must have been, lol. This clinic I'm cycling with while being on the other side of the country is easier to reach than my old clinic ever was. And a person answers and never a machine so far. I love that I can also send an email and get a response if I think I have a minor question, also a nice improvement over my old clinic and the voicemail hell I was always in. What a relief to know that if I have to reach them, they WILL call me back in a short while. I had to get used to that as well. I wouldnt even get into any detailed reason to miss work, I'd just say " I have a Dr's appt" and leave it at that - if they pushed for something more specific, just say "female issues" and they wont ask again. Yes, luckily FETs are so much easier as far as appts and all around. The hard part right now is for you to completely forget aboput cycling with your eggs and try to not let those old feeling seep back in, ok? Seriously, this is a whole new ballgame and theres no need to be concerned about getting upset at work. Unless of course you get your BFP call at work and in which case - they can make fun of you jumping on the desk and doing a happy dance later, ok? Dont stress this, Franny, think of it as your first try, because thats what its like - and its going to work!! Much love but Homer go sleep now ( will be falling on my face if I dont go to bed soon) - xoxoxo
