Janeite, I'm glad to hear from you even though the news isn't so bright at the moment. I understand that posting can sometimes be more painful than helpful, so I extra appreciate the time and energy you took to communicate with us. I so wish I could do something. Am sending an imaginary bottle of very good wine and wishing you a clear head and a strong heart for the important decisions to come.

Thank you, girls. I'm feeling better now, but please keep those prayers coming! Lord knows I need them. For now, DH and I are going to keep trying. At some point we may change our minds, but I've realized that we have time to make those decisions. I've decided to stop tempting in an effort to let go of trying to control the situation. I've also started journaling. I had a girls night in with my puppy on Friday and am feeling much more relaxed.

Peaks- any more news on the child care front? Are you going to try to celebrate Thanksgiving again this year?

Court- How's little Ben? He looked so cute in the pics! How's your dad? What are you doing to celebrate Thanksgiving?

Hey ladies it's been so long since I've been on here. I've had so much going on that I've had such little time to check in.

Becky I hope you are doing ok. Have you had anymore testing or information you've found out?

Peaks how is your family doing? Are you getting anymore sleep yet?

I don't remember what I've posted so sorry if I'm repeating myself. Ben is doing great. He's a little over 12 lbs now. He's pretty grumpy unless I'm holding him. He's for sure a mommas boy. Perfect in every way though. My dad was put in the nursing home right around my actual due date. He has alcohol related dementia and he's not doing well. I've spent so much time with him I've not had time to do anything else. We are currently snowed in so I've had some time to catch up on things at home. Miss you all and hope things are going well!

Hello ladies,

It's been forever since I've written... It's not for lack of time or interest, but I guess I feel like I'm not on the same journey that I was before, and I don't quite know how to helpfully participate. I'm not even considering going for a second LO, though DD is lovely and delightful. As this group is pretty small, I'll PM you both my e-mail address in case you'd like to stay in touch. I hate the thought of completely losing contact, as we've shared quite a lot over the past few years and I still want to encourage you in your respective paths! So I'll give my last official update, then I'll say goodbye to this thread and the site in general.

Our biggest news is that we moved a couple of weeks ago. We loved our old apartment, and it was good in some says to be living in the church, but the noise of the city center just got to us. Too many people passing by our bedroom windows screaming drunkenly in the middle of the night, arguing, singing, etc. One of DH's colleagues was also planning to move (just two floors up in the same building), so we got her old apartment. It's appropriately sized for three people, the layout is quite nice, and there's a little balcony and a built-in bookcase with a rounded top that have a special place in my heart! We've still got a decent number of boxes around, but much progress has been made. It's only a 15-minute walk from the church and 20 from DH's work, so we're still pretty close to everything important.

Salomé did great with the move, as well as her transition into daycare. We finally got a spot, though it's only 1.5 days a week for now (that's all they had available). But MIL is helping a lot, which has been great. Small daughter is eating solid foods now (well, certain pureed fruits and veggies). She has two little teeth halfway in (bottom two in the middle) and can roll from back to stomach. She used to also roll from stomach to back, though she seems to have forgotten how now! Nights are now unpredictable, sometimes sleeping 10 hours straight (ideal!), sometimes waking one or two times because of teeth or who knows what. She can now take "chunky" naps in the day, often 1-2 hours morning and afternoon, so that gives me a break finally! For the longest time she wouldn't fall asleep on her own in her bed, so this is a big deal for us to have hands free for a while. She's becoming a lot stronger and a lot more active. Her general temperament is pretty sunny, but she becomes much more quickly frustrated and expressive if something doesn't go her way. It's pretty interesting to see how that's changed with time. Here are some photos...

I think that's about it for me! I'm so glad to have this support when I needed it, and I hope I've been able to support others along the way. It was sometimes hard to manage obsession during TTC, to which the site sometimes contributed more than anything else! Still, I'm very grateful for the encouragement, the information, and generally the relief of sharing things that I couldn't share elsewhere. Thanks to you all for your thoughts and good wishes, and continued strength to you for whatever lies ahead!
