Hi :)

We were too late to go pick pumpkins, I held off too long this year they both near us were closed already. We had to buy them from the store, it’s just not as fun as going to pick them out but we got some and they got them carved this weekend. We roasted 4 batches of pumpkin seeds, that’s always the best part for my daughter she loves them,

Halloween is on Tuesday I think, the 31st. That’s when we trick or treat but there’s lots of Halloween festivities going on this weekend. It’s supposed to snow the day of halloween so it’s gonna be cold walking around for candy.

Happy belated birthday!! What did you guys do to celebrate?
Friendships really are tough as you get older. I’ve got a few friends from my younger years that I’m in contact with but that’s it. It’s hard not to grow apart when you get married and have kids, life takes over.

I hear you on no sleep. I’m tired all the time too and of course every wake time during the night is solely me taking care of it while he sleeps, that’s even more aggravating. I’m ready for her to sleep for longer stretches of time lol but she still has so much growing to do her eat schedule is priority.
I hope you can get it all straightened out so you can get good quality rest to be able to keep up with everything.

I hope you enjoyed the weekend and got some rest!!

Hi!

I hope your Halloween went nicely! :) And that you’re getting enough sleep! I know how frustrating it is to be the one to take care of the nights (and days). Try to think of it as making sure she grows, it might help.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Me making coffee and baking a cake was us celebrating my birthday. I did get breakfast served at the table, too. ;)

I hope you’re doing well!

Hi!

Our Halloween was cold with snow in the air. My daughter was cold and miserable, my son was running house to house for candy like a crazy person and Kensi just hung out lol. She hates her car seat so her stroller isn’t useful right now so I’ve been using a wrap and wearing her , so she was snugly wrapped up and warm.

Sleep... I give up.. exhausted is the new normal... I go back to work in a week, I have to be up at 430am so with her sleep schedule I won’t get much sleep, less then I get now. Her bedtime is between 7-8pm she’ll sleep till usually 11 then 130,330,530. By the time you feed and change diapers there goes a half hour in between each feed time in the night. By the time you get back to sleep you’re up again. Some nights she’ll go a little longer per feeding only waking 3 times in a night but that’s still exhausting. I’m not complaining I love my baby and wouldn’t change anything, I worked hard to get her lol.

How is Samu feeling, is the illness going away? How’s work been?

Hi!

I’m sorry to hear that your daughter was not feeling it during Halloween, but glad that Kensi was all wrapped up and cozy. :) Babywearing is the best invention ever. :)

Your nights sound rough, as well. Hang in there, mama! And yes, you did work hard to get her, rough nights and all. :hb:

It’s Fathers Day here and I guess we’re NTNP since DH didn’t use protection while DTD. I’m on CD11, so there’s a slight possibility of an August baby.

Work is fine on some days and some days not so much. Last week was tough, but I survived. The students are mostly just lovely, it’s the colleagues I seem to have trouble with the most. And the lack of sleep, the dark time of year, etc. It’s going to be okay, I’m sure.

I hope your weekend is going well! Good luck with going back to work!

Hi ladies-- is this a private group?? I just got my IUD out and am on CD45 with no period. Definitely looking for women who can relate!

I am a mom to one spunky little girl (20 months) and I live in ATL (my name says DC because I lived in DC when I first joined TWW a few years ago)

I had Mirena for 18 months and went to get it removed-- had multiple failed attempts before finally having to have a scope and be put under. It's been out for 3.5 weeks and it came out post ovulation, so I should have had a period by now but nothing...... Not sure if I ovulated again or if period is eventually coming. I have taken a pregnancy test as well and it was negative.

How long till your cycle returned to normal? When was your first period post removal? Any tips??

Hi, Katy!

It’s not so much a private group but a thwarted one; there used to be more of us but over time there’s only been myself and Ckatta. You’re welcome to join us. :) We’re not that active, though.

If I remember correctly, I had a few irregular cycles post-Mirena, ranging from 30+ days to just over 20 days. I remember saying that I wouldn’t have another IUD. :D I had mine taken out in the April of 2015, we started TTC in May, and were pregnant in September (as you may be able to see from my signature). My son turns 18 months tomorrow, and we seem to be heading towards at least NTNP if not TTC towards baby #2. I’m getting old (turned 39 last month), so we need to try to make it happen if we’re going to be a family of four. I’m from Finland, and got back to work this August.

I totally get what you’re saying about taking the Mirena out, it was really painful for me. I had to go through it without any painkillers, too. (Yikes!) I had bloody discharge for two weeks after the removal, and a sort of period about a month after the removal. Things were wonky for a while, but I used a BBT thermometer and OPKs to help with getting pregnant, took grapefruit juice and did SMEP at some point, too. We DTD a lot the cycle we did get pregnant, and I’d stopped running that month, too. I believe it was causing too much stress for me. I’m not sure what really did the trick, but we were really lucky to get pregnant in the firts place.

Good luck with TTC, and hang in there! AF will show up soon, I’m sure. (That’s the only time she’s actually expected, isn’t it? To get started with TTC.)

Hi

My daughter is like that every Halloween for some reason.

Wakasa yay!!! Fx for a new pregnancy!! That would be so exciting!!

I keep to myself within the school it’s a huge gossip mill, it’s terrible and I want no part in it. Sometimes the adults are way worse than the kids unfortunately.

Katy you’re welcome to join us. Like Wakasa said it’s just the two of us and we do chat but we aren’t active daily but please join in!!

I had my murena out years ago, it was August of 2012. I did not get pregnant until December last year, my peanut is 3 months old. I would never in my life put another iud in my body... i was so messed up, I went through what they called “withdrawal” from the synthetic hormones from the iud I was losing mass amounts of hair, I was moody/hormonal. It was absolutely terrible. I had really long unpredictable cycles post mirena. It took me months to regulate. It doesn’t sound like your situation is like that so I’m sure your period is on it’s way so you can start with a fresh new cycle!!

This is exciting! I’m excited to sit on the side lines and follow along with you guys !! Your own personal cheerleader!! I can’t wait to see bfp’s!! Good luck gals!!

Kensi was 9lbs8oz at her visit on Tuesday! She’s growing steadily and getting so big!! We go for our genetics consult in December then thank the lord we are done with testing (for now) . She’s about a month behind but she’s finally smiling and cooing, I absolutely love it!! She’s changing so fast it’s amazing.

Any weekend plans?
