Squweeeeeee
I'm in love with these cuties! Emma and Andrew are ADORABLE I kinda want to eat their faces

Harmony - yay! are you back to TTC? curious minds and all that ;)
AFM - i'm on to lightflow/spotting and the long slug before O. I'm just kind of waiting for the shock of how much I owe in taxes to dissipate so I can figure out how I'm going to pay for IVF. I think I have an open Carecredit account, which would let me finance the IVF... will figure it out in the next few weeks and talk to my DR... I'm thinking I should try to do something in May.

Hey girls! I promise to try and catch up soon! Anne Douglas is 2 weeks old tomorrow and between a late coming milk supply, her first cold and company in town, I've been busy. Finally got out of the house Tuesday for lunch yay!

I love seeing sweet Andy and Emma pics and look forward to more BFPs. Hope to catch up soon. Right now we are feeding on demand to get my supply up which means lots of little cluster feedings and very little time to rest. And then she will recover from the feedings by taking a nap for 2-3 hrs and usually that's my time to sleep and/or attempt to get a few things done haha I am thankful for the help. And I am ready for more of a schedule. Even if it's a feed often schedule, just having a better schedule will help us.

I am recovering well from the c section but more slowly from the blood loss. Still very weak and tired but eating lots of iron and healthy foods. Hopefully at tomorrow's appointment they will draw my blood and tell me if my levels are going up again.

I will try to catch up on the past week but I may just pick up with personals next week from this point on.

I have missed you all!

OMG BABY PICS! LOVE!!! :hb: :hb: :hb: Emma is gorgeous and Andrew is so handsome!

I need to take more of Fi but my phone is full...gotta offload those so I can take more! She is growing like crazy and is soooo cute! I have gotten her to laugh several times, and she smiles all the time. Like Emma, she loves her bath, but HATES getting out of the warm water into the cold air, and cries and cries until I get her dry, dressed, and swaddled with a nipple in her mouth. :) She sleeps through the night, as defined by the docs...I put her to bed at 7:30pm and she wakes for her feeding any time between 2am-4am. Then she sleeps until about 7am, and wakes up happy and smiling. She has a mild case of cradle cap, so I have been trying to get the extra flaky skin on her head off, but it takes her hair with it - so she has bald spots here and there. Poor child looks like she has mange! :rofl:

I know my personals suck at the moment, just been crazy busy. We are planning a move to Albuquerque around June 1, 2 weeks after finals for the semester for me. SO MUCH TO DO lol

SO MUCH LOVE to you ladies!! :grouphug: I will be stalking as much as I can for BFPs!

Oh and to answer..Star I think it was? We are sort of TTC, sort of NTNP. It's hard to say we are officially TTC when I am not temping (no point with odd waking hours) and haven't REALLY had an AF (just a couple days of light bleeding over a month ago), or a positive opk...but we are trying to BD at least every 3 days just in case my body suddenly decides to O. ;) I am still breastfeeding so that may screw things up a bit, but we shall see!

Katy - iron-rich foods are yummy at least! burgers! apricots! spinach/kale!
Marina - insurance doesn't cover it. there are 2 companies that provide insurance in my area and neither cover fertility. at least it does go towards my out of pocket amount so that for other stuff I'll be paying less.
LIndsey - sounds awesome! and that is a pretty good plan to just keep up the bding :)

Andrew is adorableeee!! Love his hair!

Lindsey, I'm so envious of Fi and all that sleeping. This girl is waking every hour to feed and won't sleep unless it's on or next to me, preferably on top of me. She also hates getting taken out of her bath, cries so much!

Yeli -- Andrew was (is) all about the sleeping on me. Very disconcerting. I started letting him fall asleep that way and then moving him to the bassinet after. It's work so far. In fact last night after his 2 am feeding, I pretty much put him right back into the bassinet and he was fine. I do let him sleep on me after his 430 feeding just because he's such a sweet little cuddled. In fact, he's passed out there right now and while I need to get up, I can't bring myself to move!

Hey ladies. Just wanted to update you all. AF was present upon waking this morning. Since she was technically not late I don't even assume this was a chemical. I think the test I used was just shotty. I'm not hating on all blue dyes, just that brand. I think if I'm going to use a blue dye in the future I may just use name brand. Although, I'll be pr dominantly seeking pink dye. It sucks that I had to go through this, but being my level headed self I did not allow myself to get overly excited. I remained cautiously optimistic throughout. With that being said, no mush gushy stuff is needed ;). I am just putting my best foot forward and moving on with the vitex and progesterone. I am also vowing not to test unless my period is genuinely late in the future. So cheers to the future for all of us ladies hoping for our BFPs in the near future!!

Hi guys...sorry I have been away...I live each day now fighting for an hour of sleep... Batman wakes every hour and a half.. He refuses to sleep in his crib and the only way we both sleep is if I am on the couch and he is on my chest... I manage to get him to sleep for 2hours in his bouncer... I must admit I had days where I wanted my pre-batman life back but when I look into his innocent eyes... I pull myself together

Hey gals, I'm back to work today. I miss my little dude but is it bad to say that it's really nice being back and being among adults again?? I feel bad for the people I run into. They start talking to me and I'm like ohhhh, person, who talks back . . . let me talk (and talk and talk and talk) to you!

Amber -- there are ovi tests in there too so I want April to be the month of Amber!

Echo -- I'm sorry batman is being such a clinger/non-sleeper. It sounds like all of our babies are going through the same thing . . . demanding to sleep on our chests instead of the beds we spent tons of money on (or in my case any one of the SIX we got him).

Star -- sorry about the forever period. Clean the old uterus ouuuuuuuut!!

:rofl: I'm trying to get this uterus all cleaned up and ready :rofl:
Marina - congrats on first day back at work!
Echo - Babies are made to be cute and lovable so we don't eat them or throw them out. :rofl: I hope you are finding some time to sleep! I've been listening to a lot of dr radio and they had someone on about babies and sleeping. The doctor said that the best way to train a baby to sleep on their own (and not on you) is to not let them be fully asleep when you put them on the bed and to swaddle them really well. The guy on the radio was saying how if they cry, pick them back up and get them almost asleep before putting them back down... repeating until they realize that it is how you sleep. ----- anyways, that was what the guy on the radio said (and I've got no personal experience)

Hello ladies!
SOOOOO happy to see all of this baby spam!! These cuties warm my heart :hb:

Not much going on with me - I just finished my Clomid yesterday and I'm being monitored but nothing exciting going on yet because it's still early in my cycle. I go back tomorrow. Hope all of you are doing well! I can't wait for BFPs :) We are LOOOONG overdue!

Star - sorry about the long AF. I hate when that b**ch lingers. That's actually a really good sleep tip. I started way late on that (probably about 6 months ago) but I LOVE it now. My sister started way earlier with it and I wish I did too!

Marina - Happy first day back at work! (or second day now).

Echo - sorry to hear about the lack of sleep.

Anyway, I thought you new mommies would find this hilarious, I know I did.

Exhausted new mom's hilarious take on 'expert' sleep advice

"You shouldn’t sleep train at all, before a year, before 6 months, or before 4 months, but if you wait too late, your baby will never be able to sleep without you. College-aged children never need to be nursed, rocked, helped to sleep, so don’t worry about any bad habits. Nursing, rocking, singing, swaddling, etc to sleep are all bad habits and should be stopped immediately.

Naps should only be taken in the bed, never in a swing, car seat, stroller, or when worn. Letting them sleep in the car seat or swing will damage their skulls. If your baby has trouble falling asleep in the bed, put them in a swing, car seat, stroller, or wear them. Use the crib only for sleep and keep it free of distractions. If the baby is having trouble adjusting to the crib, have them play in it first. If the baby wakes up at night and wants to play, put fun toys in the crib to distract them.

Put the baby in a nursery, bed in your room, in your bed. Co-sleeping is the best way to get sleep, except that it can kill your baby, so never, ever do it. If your baby doesn't die, you will need to bed-share until college.

Keep the room warm, but not too warm. Swaddle the baby tightly, but not too tightly. Put them on their backs to sleep, but don't let them be on their backs too long or they will be developmentally delayed. Give them a pacifier to reduce SIDS. Be careful about pacifiers because they can cause nursing problems and stop your baby from sleeping soundly. If your baby sleeps too soundly, they’ll die of SIDS.

Don’t let your baby sleep too long, except when they’ve been napping too much, then you should wake them. Never wake a sleeping baby. Any baby problem can be solved by putting them to bed earlier, even if they are waking up too early. If your baby wakes up too early, put them to bed later or cut out a nap. Don’t let them nap after 5 p.m. Sleep begets sleep, so try to get your child to sleep as much as possible. Put the baby to bed awake but drowsy. Don't wake the baby if it fell asleep while nursing.

You should start a routine and keep track of everything. Don’t watch the clock. Put them on a schedule. Scheduling will make your life impossible because they will constantly be thrown off of it and you will become a prisoner in your home.

Using the "Cry It Out" method (CIO) will make them think they’ve been abandoned and will be eaten by a lion shortly. It also causes brain damage. Not getting enough sleep will cause behavior and mental problems, so be sure to put them to sleep by any means necessary, especially CIO, which is the most effective form. CIO is cruel beyond belief and the only thing that truly works because parents are a distraction.

Formula and solid foods will help the baby sleep longer. Solid foods shouldn’t be given at night because they might wake the baby. Don't stop the baby from nursing when asleep. Be wary of night feeds. If you respond too quickly with food or comfort, your baby is manipulating you. Babies can’t manipulate. Babies older than six months can manipulate.

Sleep when the baby sleeps. Clean when the baby cleans. Don’t worry. Stress causes your baby stress and a stressed baby won't sleep."
