Cali- We have been getting hit hard. Luckily it hasnt been too close to us. It hit the airport which is about 45mins from us and it hit bridgeton which isnt too far maybe 25-30mins. Weve have had Rain/storms/tornadoes since Jan. I am over it!! We are under a severe warning again tonight. Suppose to happen between 9pm-1pm. I dont like when it happens in the middle of the night. Ds will be sleeping in our room for sure.

Excited for your 4d too!

Hi all! I am sorry I have been away. :(

Vegas was great!! We had a great time. I didnt win much money but it was still a blast. We saw the Cirque du soliel show "O" and that by itself was worth the whole trip. It was amazing. I highly reccomend it.

As far as TTC, AF started to early last month and messes with the IVF timing. So we have skipped this month. AF just started again today (about 3 days to early again) :( so if all goes well I will start the IVF process this cycle. I have an appointment tomorrow for some blood work including a beta (what for?? ugh)

As far as my drama last month, its going better. It was mostly in my head... to explain further, I was having some serious doubts on doing the IVF at all. I kinda still am, but I think its just nerves. Last month I think I was in a depression and didnt even want to try any more. I wanted my life back, I wanted to not worry about it any more. I know that is normal from time to time, but I was way over the top in my reasoning. I even told DH I wanted to do weightloss surgery first (lap band- also covered completely by my insurance). He knows if I did that we would have to wait a full year before even thinking about getting pregnant, so that did not go over well. I know its crazy guys, but I was so Anti- having a baby that it was scary.

I am in a better place though and that is all that matters I guess. I did make an appointment with my reg doctor to talk about getting on some meds for depression. We talked for a long time and in the end I decided to wait. I think its just a rollercoaster and I was on a big low.

Thanks for hearing me out and for all your comments.

Ill let you know how tomorrows appointment goes!

I will try this again. I hit submit but it didn't post.

raine - Don't be afraid to go to the doc about depression. Dh has really suffered from depression. He finally went to the doc to get some meds, and it has helped him sooooo much. He is in a much better place now.

amom - I've been thinking about you and the storms. Stay safe.

cali - Achy hips stink don't they. Some nights are not bad, but others are. Last night was a good night. :D I had the day to myself, so I did some major cleaning (dh husband says my nesting is in overdrive. lol). I think that is why I slept better. My hips were so stiff this morning though. I have been told that I am waddling now (probably because my hips are stiff. lol). I get told all the time that I look like I am due any day. I'm not due until Aug 3. But it is true. I am huge already. I did the same with dd. I have even been asked if I'm having twins! lol.

A's mom- how did your class go?? It seems to be going so fast! I am excited for you. Do you watch "parenthood'? I just watched the season finale and thought of you because one of the couples has secondary infertility and just decided she wants to adopt! She got home and told her husband "I am not done, I want another baby. I want to adopt." I got teary-eyed and immediately thought about you.

AFM- I am getting ready to got to my appointment. I gave blood this morning but not sure if they will have any results. I will probably get a date with Mr wandy though! lol

I dont watch parenthood, darn. Love the story line!! Have fun on your date with mr wand lol.

Classes went fine. Kind of boring and the movies are ridiculous. Bad acting at its finest. Our teacher is kinda bitchy so the next 8 weeks should be interesting.

Ok. The last one posted so I'll try this again. Please keep one of my friends in your prayers. She just had a miscarriage at 17 weeks. Her first pregnancy ended at around 20 weeks. Thank the Lord that he has blessed her with a boy and girl since then, but I know it doesn't make this miscarriage any easier.

So much is going on today!! I found out my cousins kids are in foster care and need a placement asap. I called my worker who called their worker and she was thrilled. She will call me tomorrow and we could have 2 kids in our house any day!!!!!!! The little boy is 8 and the little girl is 4. The kids are older than expected but theyre family so it does change things some. Apparently since we are family we dont have to have the 9wk training but we are going to finish I think anyway(if we can).

Ugh so I just told the other foster mom that has "little guy" that we may be taking these kids in and she just told me that everyone else decided they werent interested in taking him. That we were the only ones. Why hasnt she emailed me then? My heart sank. He is the one we wanted originally and is completely adoptable and now we just changed everything. He does have some major allergies though. Sigh....

Hey Amom, Sorry that you guys seem to be having such an emotional rollercoaster these last few days! Is it possible that your cousin will want to get the kids back or are you going to move to adopt them? Where as if you were to foster the little guy you could move to adopt him you know? I am sure that you two will make the right decision for your family.

Artsy - so sorry to hear about your friend! that is terrible!

Raine - I am sorry that you found yourself in a dark place ttc wise, but glad that you found your way out of it. Things are always possible, you just have to remember not to give up! I know it is difficult, but it will happen soon for you!

Dream - your vacation looked dreamy. I wish I spent the week at the beach!

AFM - well I have finally agreed with DH to stop birth control, but not to try and have another baby. Emotionally wise I am just a wreck and I have never been a nice person on birth control. DH doesn't want to do anything to prevent, but I told him I am just not ready if we were to get pg again so I told him that we have to try and use condoms. I HATE this idea. I have never used them in my life and they gross me out, but I was just not in a good place mentally wise on the birth control...

On another note...Happy Belated Mother's Day to you all! I hope you were all treated like queens! :)

amom - Wow! I know that you will make the right decision.

peanut - Good luck going off the pill. I don't think condoms are gross, but you just can't feel as much, which is a bummer.

afm - I go back to the doctor today. I will be doing the glucose screening. I think that they are going to do another ultrasound too. Last time, the placenta was really close to my cervix. I hope that it has moved up. I really don't want a c-section.

Jast made a heartbreaking decision to not take in my cousins kids. There were many reasons we decided on this but it doesnt make it any easier. I am a mess. Feel like bawling.

We were worried about age, with the one child being older than ds. He is also having some behavorial issues and has had trouble getting along with other children ds's age(worker didnt tell me this) family did. Also the parents harass whoever has the kids and we dont want to deal with that.

Amom - so sorry for the heartbreaking decision that you guys had to make. But ultimately you have to put ds and your family first. It wouldn't be good to bring in a child that could potentially hurt your ds's feelings or not get along with him. Maybe little guy is definitely the one for you! Sending you some hugs.

Artsy - good luck with your glucose screening. I had placenta previa at my 20 week ultrasound and by 30 weeks to had moved up. C sections are not all that bad, but if you can avoid it that is better!

Ok are you guys ready for more craziness? Little Guys foster mom just emailed me and told me they went to court today and they will wait for our classes to be done to possibly adopt him!!! They do this thing called staffing where they pick a few few families, sit down with them and then pick who they feel would be best. We are now one of those families!! This week is INSANE. I am super excited though bc we've always wanted him!!

Peanut-Looks like u may be right :jump:
