Good morning!

I think it’s reflux but we go to a pediatric GI tomorrow afternoon. He will also be the final determination on whether we get the feed tube or not as well. We went to the eye clinic on Thursday and they did find abnormalities in the eye and optic nerve, we don’t quite know what it means yet but he’s assuming it’s from whatever genetic disorder she has.

Getting to know your cycles again is a good idea. What you went through could have switched them up a bit and it’s takes a bit to learn your new normal.

How is the school year going? Are you enjoying the permanent position?
I have this next week off-besides two days of refresher training- then we are back into another long school year. I felt like I had no real summer or break from it lol. Kensi isn’t doing well with taking a bottle or with suddenly letting other people hold her, going back to work will be really rough. She pukes everytime she gets upset and we can’t have her puking every time I leave for work. So i hope she adjusts okay, I’m realky worried. I’d love to be able to quit my job and take care of her but finances just won’t allow it.

How is everything else going? Samu is good?
We are getting cooler nights and it’s getting darker earlier unfortunately fall is getting closer :(

How did the GI appointment go? Do you need a feeding tube? How is it going otherwise? I hope you going back to work isn’t too hard on her!

The school year is going well. It’s not a permanent position yet, but next fall it should be if I do my job well enough... :) The amount of work I need to get done is incredible because it’s such an adjustment, and I feel like I am constantly neglecting someone or something. It should be easier next school year, but then again, I’m supposed to be pregnant or just given birth by that time, so it takes a lot to get used to the idea that my life is all about work right now.

Fall is getting closer here, too! Luckily we’ve had some warmer days, too.

I hope your week of getting back to work will go smoothly.

Good evening!!

It is officially a school night :( we go back tomorrow. I’m so sad to leave Kensi and she’s not been doing well with others lately. She’s going through a phase where she acts like everyone but me, Dad, brother and sister are strangers and screams bloody murder. This includes family who she has been around her whole life. I’m so worried about how tough this is going to be on her.

We go back to GI on the 13th . He ordered quite a few tests. He put her on a reflux med, an appetite stimulant, and a laxative. She has been eating foods by mouth, it’s such a huge step in progress!! Some days are better than others but she is finally eating something other than just nursing. He only gave it a two week trial period which I don’t feel is fair and if it doesn’t work then we move towards the tube. I’m hoping we can hold him off now that she’s eating on the stimulant.

I’m sure that with time and practice you’ll figure out how to balance work and everything else so it doesn’t feel like life is all work and no play. Even if you are pregnant or have just given birth you’ll readjust and figure it all out. I completely get it. Upping your work load is a huge adjustment.

This week will be high temps with really high humidity, it’s miserably hot. We’ve not had too much fall weather it’s still been nice, it’s been a wet summer but temps have been high.. The last few weeks have been more comfortable temps but we’re going right back up to way too hot lol.

Have a great week!!

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reply! I have been buried under work, it’s ridiculous how much stuff I have to do.

How are you doing? How has going back to work been for you, and Kensi? How about the rest of your gang?

I just realized that I have a little over a month of being in my thirties, and then you can call me a middle aged woman... yikes. I am still undecided on what to do about the baby situation, as in should we start trying again or hold off indefinitely. I’m not getting any younger, that’s for sure!

Talk to you later!

We are all doing okay. Kensi is having a hard time staying with grandma when I leave, it’s heartbreaking leaving her as she’s screaming. I hope she gets adjusted quickly.

I’m sorry to hear that work is so busy but I hope it’s going well! How’s Samu doing in daycare?

What’s your dh say about trying for another, is he on board?? If so girl get busy lol ;)

My mother in law just got here so it’s off to work I go I guess. Have a great rest of the week!!

I hope things are looking better with Kensi staying with her grandmother! How is work going for you?

I’m not quite sure what DH is thinking about, because he thought having an afternoon delight today (both working at home today and Samu was at daycare) without protection was okay for him, and I’m supposed to ovulate tomorrow or Wednesday... :’)

I’m starting to think that I may not want to continue working so much if things don’t let up at all. It’s too much stress and too little free time.

Have a great week!

Hi! Sorry it’s been so long! We are finally done with sports so I have a tiny bit of time to be home lol.

Work ya back into full swing and going just as it usually does. The kids were so good for the first month then the honeymoon period ended and normalcy took over. How’s work for you?

How’s everything else? We’ve all been sick for almost two weeks, it’s been terrible. Kensi has her MRI on Monday, I’m already getting anxiety about it.
I hope all is well!!

I’m glad to hear that everything is going as normally as it can! :) Good luck with Kensi’s MRI on Monday!

We’re just starting our fall break, heading out today for a couple of days. I got a really heavy flow a few days ago, so I guess it’s a July baby we’re trying for next. I turn forty on Sunday next week. Time is running out, it seems.

We’re doing well, adjusting to the school year again.

Have a great weekend!

Sorry for my delay. We’ve all been sick, it’s been terrible with back to back Illnesses.

How was your getaway? I hope you got to relax and unwind.

Happy birthday! Sorry I’m late :) What did you guys do for your birthday?

We had to cancel the MRI, the baby was too sick. The anesthesiologists and ya were very uncomfortable with her being sedated. I have no idea when she goes next. They are supposed to call but haven’t yet.

How is everyone? How is work?

It’s good to hear from you, but I’m sorry about you being ill so much! I hope the flu season is over soon for you.

Thanks for the congrats! We didn’t really celebrate on the day, it was more like a whole week of celebration by going for a hotel getaway both weekends. We actually ended up visiting my mom as a surprise, and drove back on my birthday.

Work is work, and I still have to think about whether I want it to be as heavy as it is. Otherwise we’re all doing well!

I hope you’ll be feeling better soon!

Sorry it’s been so long. The website kept saying the site wasn’t secure when I was trying to log in, I didn’t want my info taken advantage of or something.

Let’s catch up!! How is everything? How are you? How is Samu?

We in the last few months since we talked have had a bunch of appointments including her brain MRI. The results from that are not good. We don’t know all the details yet, we don’t see neurology until January. The waiting is so hard when we already know the results are not good. My heart is shattered and so sad. Some days I wonder why my baby, why us. I just don’t understand. I’m so terrified to find out the rest of the details. For now I’m putting a fake smile on my face to get the day done to hide my sadness so people don’t ask. I pray to god that in all the bad news that maybe there’s some hope or good in there somewhere.

what’s been going on with you guys?

I understand the hesitation to log on if there’s any doubt about leaking information somewhere! I haven’t gotten any such notifications, though.

Oh, Ckatta, I’m sorry to hear they’re not giving you good news about her. :( Did they really let you know that it’s not good news and then just leave you hanging??? That’s terrible! How is she doing? I hope you get to deal with all of this and make peace with whatever the news is. :hb:

I’m still pretty tired all the time, and I feel like I need to really make a decision if this line of work is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Teaching is getting harder and harder as a profession.

Otherwise we’re doing well, but still not pregnant. I fear my menopause is going to start soon as my LP has shortened to 10 days, and my AF is very heavy and long, along with PMS getting more difficult each month. We haven’t stopped trying yet, but not getting pregnant is wearing me down. And the EDD for the MMC is this Tuesday, too. :(

Samu is fine, very talkative and active, and such a cuddly little one. Going through the terrible twos, though. :)

I wish you happy holidays, and good news for the coming year. :hb:

It still says in not secure but I was advised that the site may not have renewed their security stuff. I’m not sure, I don’t understand it so I’m just hoping my stuff is safe.

Our pediatrician did let us know her scan wasn’t good but did withhold details. I think probably because it’s out of his field and couldn’t answer our question. I’m really am upset we can’t get in to see her neurologist for so long but really I have no choice. They told me our pediatrician shouldn’t have told us anything regarding her testing , they seemed rather annoyed he did. So now we wait.. otherwise she is doing okay. She’s still small and growth has kinda stopped, she’s very behind mentally and physically but she is making small changes so that’s some good in all the bad.

Have you been feeling feeling this way just since you got a permanent position teaching? I’m sure it’s busy and exhausting. I don’t know about where you live but here it seems to be a thankless job and I’m sure that itself is frustrating and tiring.
I’m not sure what’s gonna happen with my job. It all depends on the news we get from her neurologist, if she’s going to need a lot of long term care I will probably quit so I can take care of her full time.

Ttc is so exhausting. I remember all the feelings month after Month. I pray that it happens for you guys soon! And I’m sure right now is an emotional time with your previous EDD being now, I’m so sorry :( are you using opks or anything else to help narrow down O?

I hope your week started off good!

It sounds like your pediatrician did overstep their bounds by telling you that there was something wrong with the scans and then not telling you more. I hope the news from the neurologist will be good!

My position isn’t permanent just yet, they hired me for this academic year, and there should be the opportunity to get a permanent position. I just feel like this work is getting too hard to do with little sleep and a small child to look after. DH hasn’t gotten any better with doing his part around the house, so it all lands on me, for the most part.

As for TTC, yes, I’m using OPKs, and today is 7DPO, expected AF arrival is at Christmas. I saw a gynecologist today and got a prescription for some progesterone if AF shows. It’s supposed to help with lengthening the LP, which was only 10 days long this past cycle...

I hope you get a break during the holidays! We’re driving up north, starting tomorrow, and coming home for New Year’s. :hb:

I am going to be starting my IVF next year. I am very nervous. We have sent the new doctor all of our reports. This is so that they can have an overlook of it before hand. However, we will still be medically examined by the clinic as well. I am excited but at the same time anxious. Hoping for the best. Good luck to you.
