yeah Tara- I want to see pix too!

Deb that sounds like a great gift from both boys!!!! Glad Blake is sleeping better.

Christina- how is Kate?

Lisa- thinking of you.

Chrissy- how are you doing- you going to show us a picture?

AFM: we are doing great other than getting a little anxious about going back to work, I still have until March 21 but I am scared it is going to mess up our BF being away from hom for so long. He is sleeping great though- usually from about 8 or 8:30- 5 or 5:30

Deb, yay!! Glad Blake is giving you some sleep now. What a thoughtful gift. :) It sounds beautiful.

Jen, I don't know how you working moms do it. That would be a big concern for me too. I hope you guys can figure out a way that's easy on you. How is your freezer stash coming along?

Tara, how are you feeling? It's getting close!!!!

Lisa, Chrissy, thinking of you ladies. Hope you check in soon.

AFM, we're good. Kate is doing great, although she's been coughing a lot today. Not sure if it's just choking on her copious amounts of drool, or if she's starting a cold. We are definately in a sleep regression and it's killing me. I know Deb is saying under her breath "welcome to my life". lol

I'M STILL NOT GETTING NOTIFICATIONS!!!!!! UGHHHHHHHHH!!

Christina, what's going on over there with the regression? Ours lasted about 3 weeks, and then it took some time to recover, amount a month, and then he started giving me decent sleep. Where is she sleeping now?

Jen, amazing sleep there!!! So happy for you! Are you pumping and storing??

She's about half in her crib and half in her swing. When she's in her crib it's hit or miss but I did get her to sleep 7 hrs straight in her crib one night. WOOT! Right now she's sick so I let her stay in her swing so she can sleep well and get better.

Christina- sorry about the sleep regression. I hope it works out soon.

Deb- yes I am pumping and freezing-I have been using one bottle a day to get Searcy used to it. Obed gives him the last bottle before bed so that I can read to Troy and get him to sleep. He has been doing great. I am just realy nervous about starting back to work.

What the hell? I"m not getting notifications either!

Deb - Hallelujah for 7 and 1/2 hours! Hope that becomes a more regular thing :) Have you started thinking about #2 yet?

Jenn - Ugh, I"m sure you are getting anxious about going back to work. Hope you can enjoy this last month at home without worrying too much. At least you only have to go back for a couple months before summer starts, right?

Christina - Sorry for the sleep regression :( Hope Kate gets over the bug or drool :) or whatever she's fighting and can give her mama some sleep! How are things with DH? How's the job hunt going?

Lisa - Are you still lurking? I hope you are doing well. I'm sure you need some time away from the TTC boards (or at least I did), but I miss you... been thinking and praying for you a lot these days.

Chrissy - How are the babies? You must be getting super close by now especially for twins!! Would love if you'd check in and let me know how you're doing.

AFM - I'm doing great, but I failed my 1 hr glucose tolerance. Not TOO worried about it since I didn't fail to badly, but it's definitely time to start focusing a little more on the diet :oops: I've also been getting back to the gym and walking on the treadmill which makes me feel a little better about my current state of enormity :( Hopefully the next test will go better. Otherwise, things are good. Not sure if I mentioned it already, but we decided on Luke Mitchell for his name. He's kicking me a lot now, which is the coolest feeling ever! I have to say though girls, you could have warned me about the peeing on myself when I laugh, sneeze, or cough :rofl: That came as a complete surprise.

STILL no notifications here either!!

Hahahaha Tara, I didnt have the pleasure of peeing on myself during pregnancy, but it wouldnt surprise me AT ALL if it happens on the next! I'm sooo glad you are feeling Luke move all around! And seriously, you cannot act like you did not see my demand for a PHOTO!!!!!!!!!!!! COME ON WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christina, how is the sleep regression going?

Jen, sooo glad Searcy is sleeping so well. I am so freaking jealous! Are you like the Baby Whisperer or something, lol! What is your secret!

Blake has regressed big time after that 7.5 hour stretch. Since then, I've gotten one 4 hour stretch, the rest have been 3.5 or less ALL WEEK LONG. I have no idea. Separation anxiety maybe, so when he wakes/stirs, he cant self soothes and needs to see me??? Or maybe its his mental development with the crawling and sitting up being perfected right now?? I'm reading The Wonder Weeks which describes alot but even though I know what all he is going through, it still doesnt make it all cookies and cream to wake up this many times again when we had gone down to 2x a night, with some 5 and 6 hour stretches! I'm one exhausted momma.

OH, and Tara asked about TTC #2. We will start trying in the fall! We want to do this while we are here and he is not deploying, you know. But it scares me to death since Blake still isnt sleeping yet. :(

DH has been unemployed for almost a year and it's driving me NUTS!!!!!!!!! I seriously can't stand the sight of him anymore. Today Kate went to sleep and so my Mom and I ran to the store that was right around the corner. Like 3 min away. I had my phone and everything. I get back an hour later and he's all pissy because according to him she's been screaming since I left. I'm pretty sure that's an exaggeration becuase he always exaggerates. He could have called if it was that bad. Seriously? Grrrrrr...stupid man. I never get any time to myself and he's all mad because he had to deal with the baby for more than 2 minutes. I'm questioning why I even got married. I can't picture the next 40 years like this. I'm really losing respect for him and I've already lost all my attraction to him a long time ago.

Sorry for the rant girls. I'm just really struggling.


Deb, That's so exciting that you're going to TTC again soon! I hope Blake can give you a break.

Tara, I never peed on myself but there was a few times I thought I might. LoL. I had to pee every 15 min. And kicks in the bladder made it spasm. Not a great part of pregnancy. :)

Jen, You do sound like super mom. You have two little ones and seem so calm!

I agree with Christina that Jenn seems to have it all together! Dude, we need some meltdowns from you, LOL! :)

Christina, so sorry to hear about the struggles. I can totally see how a strain could be there. I believe DH and I have a pretty darn good marriage, but today man, we've been butting heads and I dont know why! It was to the point where I just had my dinner in the kitchen and cried a bit b/c I just couldnt take any more stupid bickering. I busted my butt all day cleaning when he was with Blake, and I got Blake down for 2 naps, etc. So with us being as strong as we are, and still attracted, to have these issues, I can see where you would with your DH who hasnt seemed to help you one bit and hasnt had any luck on the job front. I hope he steps up and give you a much needed break. I think Brock helps alot, but sadly, when he gave me a *break* today, I ended up cleaning the freaking house b/c he hasnt done much around here lately. So much for *me* time. I think it is REALLY important for us to get that!

I think we need to peer pressure Tara for a pix....

you girls are funny... Its just my personality I guess. DH says to me all the time "youre just glad the sun comes up" I am def not super mom I am just a relaxed person and I dont let much get to me most of the time. I have been SUPER lucky with both my boys and their sleep patterns :dunno: cant say it was anything that I did though.

So I wonder why we are not getting notifications anymore??????

Deb- that is exciting that you are going to start trying for #2. I "think" we want to try for #3 but in a few years. I dont think I can have 3 in daycare! It already will cost us 1000 a month now for the two.

Christina- sorry for all that you are going though with DH. Hopefully he will get a job SOON and things will start to get better.

Tara- Im with Debbie- where is the pic?????? :d

Lisa- hope you are felling well. we miss you

Chrissy- how are you? how much longer?

I havent heard too much from Chrissy lately. And I dont think they are doing notifications with the buddy groups, but I dont know WHY. Bleh.

Tara, how are you feeling? pixxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx!!

Jenn, I saw that you had the babies in bed early but then Searcy woke early? I sooooo wish I could get Blake to sleep sooo well!

AFM, Blake is ALL over the place. He is now crawling and he is now pulling himself up by himself when he is on his tummy! This boy is super strong and outta control! He just turned 7 months today!!!!!! I wonder if that contributes to the poor sleep habits? Guess we'll see!
