Hi, Ladies!!

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much. I've been sneaking on and reading then running! Still invested in you all just super busy! We are putting our house up for sale this weekend so of course we procrastinated and waited until THIS WEEK to finish everything! The last four days have been hell. We haven't had a break. My DH is putting up a kitchen backslash as we speak. We've been painting, cleaning, yardwork, remodeling the kitchen, moving things, and organizing/cleaning out. It's just been crazy...lol. We need to sell ASAP because we've been trying to purchase a home in Nebraska while we are still here in California, BUT everyone has been rejecting our offers because they don't want to wait until we sell the house because the sell of our California home is contingent for our loan in Nebraska to go through. So, the sooner we sell the sooner we can buy! We've already lost 3 houses over there because of this so we can't wait anymore... :( . Houses go by QUICK over there! They sell the day they are listed and people offer more than the listing price. That's how we've lost out on 2 of the homes. So crazy!

Dev: I am so, so sorry about AF arriving. TTC sucks. There is no other way of wording it. It's ok to be emotional. I'm surprised you haven't cried about it before honestly- only because I've broken down several times! It's good to let all of those emotions out. I'm sure DH's friend meant well, but I don't think he should have said something like that. I mean, I took it the wrong way, and I guess it COULD be comforting. It's just that everyone is different, and if you want something I still think you should keep trying! You're still young! I don't know..I guess I"m putting myself in your shoes, and that's the way I would have felt if someone had told me that. Bleh, I'm not explaining this well. I'm all tuckered out so forgive me, lol.

Marina: OPKS are still about the same. Not positive yet, bleh. Actually, everyone is pretty healthy..hm..probably about to jinx it! haha. I don't think I felt those pregnancy symptoms until a few more weeks. Stay positive! My DH is from Colorado- we will be visiting there on the way to our new home in Nebraska around June. Glad you had fun- it's beautiful out there!

Star: Sorry about AF..yuck! Anything different this cycle?

Gaya: How did the OB appointment go?

Sarah: Sorry about the yucky day. I know how you feel- everything always seems to go wrong at once for me too, haha. Preggo hormones definitely don't help either! Hopefully you will get to your doctor on Tuesday- let us know how it goes!

AFM: Looks like it will be a late ovulation this time. Negative OPKS- not surprised though. I'm super stressed out with the house situation so I know that's delaying it. Hope it's not a crazy long cycle though, lol. I haven't had one of those in awhile..might be due for one... :rofl:

Dev - I am pissed for you :x I am pissed about everything in life these days but hearing your news makes me so mad! And whatever you feel, feel it. Take it very easy on yourself, let yourself feel whatever you need to feel. I hope you can do something to practice "self-care" - a massage, or a good book, a new shirt, glass of wine? Whatever it may be. You deserve it.

Gaya - looking forward to hearing you about your OB appointment. I don't see an actual ob until May 12! I will be 14 weeks at that point. But the other ob-gyn wouldn't see me because I'm "high risk" so I guess it's better for me to wait until I'm almost half way through my pregnancy to see an actual doctor, huh? Makes no flippin' sense to me! You already did sono?

Marina - I bet it's sinking in now, eh? Have you told anyone the news yet? How did Andrew take the news? Parents? At 4 weeks the only symptom I had was being very bloated, like way more than normal PMS bloating, and my boobs grew 2 sizes overnight. I hear you about wanting to wait a bit. It's so nerve raking especially in the beginning, things are so delicate.

Today is my first ultrasound (finally!). And then tonight DH will tell his parents which makes me happy because his family could really use the good news. Then the rest of his family will be announced to early next week at our family Passover dinner. My husband's brother already guessed because of my gigantic stomach I already have (wtf??). I'm pretty thin all over and then my belly sticks out really far. It's kind of crazy actually. Take a look. This is less than 8 weeks. Pretty bloated!

Sarah : LOOK at the belly already !! too cute. I thought you were a week ahead of me. I just finished 8 weeks and only i notice me growing but i really think its food belly for me..lol Yes i had my dating sono and first OB appt . I cant believe the Docs over there wont see you sooner - esp coz you are high risk. how crazy is that ?!! I cant wrap my head around it. Have they atleast prescribed you a good prenatal and iron for your nausea?

danielle: so glad everyone at home is doing well. Maybe the move is good for you guys. Less sickness :). All the best and hope you find a house quick! btw , i dont have long cycles but I O'd only on CD 19 in my last cycle, so who knows it could be anytime today or tomorrow that you get a blaring +ve

star and dev : hope AF gets out of the way quick

marina : I have to stop my self from calling you nina 'coz my good friend's name is marina and we call her nina :). how are you doing girl?

i think i got everyone..afm : Ob appt went well, Doc is sticking to 11/11 due date and thinks it is hilarious when i told him how much i eat nowadays. So finally asked about my promotion couple of weeks ago and my boss said HR thinks its too soon after my last promotion just shy of 2 years ago. Frankly the last one was more of a correction coz they had hired me at a lower level. So well looks like that ship has probably sailed for another year or so. I was hoping to fight for it for the next round ins September but I am going to tell my boss about my pregnancy today and though its totally unethical, i think i dont have much of chance after that. SO NOT FAIR...makes me really really sad . What HR policy is on paper is so different from effing reality.. my boss is a woman and she will fight for me but her boss is this old dinosaur still living in dark ages and i dont think he will . Shouldn't my promotion be based on my work until now and not the future???! oh well..sorry for the rant, but this is eating me up...

Dev :rofl: xo

Danielleh - it is a crazy time for buying houses right now! especially those in a certain price range. Here where I live, houses in the under $250k market are going like hotcakes. We just put up our little starter home for sale and got an offer within 2 hours of the sale going up. crazy. I hope you get everything coordinated and working with the sale and the move!

Harmony - nice to see you again. I hope that your DH gets on the ttc train toot toot :)
Sarahleh - that is a cute bump - looks like you wont have to let people know just by subbing the wine for grapejuice next week. :)

Gaya - the world of HR, promotions, and being female is not always fair. I wish I had advice for you on this.

Marina - I miss you and when is your DR appt?

AFM - I am going to try to remember to be better about my vitamins this month. ... and hopefully get back on top of my workload so I can sleep like a normal person.

Oh my gosh you guys, I wrote a post on my phone but had to keep coming back to it throughout the day. Well, when I went to post it was gone!! So short and sweet personals for you all!!

Harmony -- welcome back friend!! So glad to "see" you. I'm so excited you're back in the game, no matter the form. And although guys may ntnp, we always know what's up and when to do it, so I don't think we're ever NTNP!!!

Gaya -- I'm sorry about the promotion and I'm sorry that you feel like you won't be considered for the promotion/raise when you are eligible because of the pregnancy. It's a sad state that we as women are in that it's basically one or the other!

Sarah -- what an adorable bump you have there!

Dev -- I'm so glad you're back to being you!

Star -- take all the vitamins and all the drugs so that you lay a big fat beautiful healthy egg this month.

OK, if I forgot you, I'm so sorry! It's been a messy week.

AFM -- well, I may not feel pregnant but my hormones hit me hard at the worst time. I was talking to my supervisor about a case I don't particularly enjoy and my chin started shaking and my eyes started watering. It was mortifying. I NEVER cry and usually have very little emotion. I had to apologize profusely and blame it on pregnancy hormones. So that cat is out of the bag. Oh well, I'm leaving this position at the end of the month! I have an appointment on Friday so I should get the numbers by Monday. The line seems to be getting darker so I guess it's still there. My friend won't do the progesterone again for me this time so I have to beg the doctor. I'll just have to tell him I know he's the doctor and that he went to medical school and I did not . . . but for my sanity, please give me the progesterone. He knows I'm a special level of crazy!!

Hi, ladies!

Just painting..painting..and painting the house, lol. I HATE painting! This house better sell after all the blood, sweat, and tears put into this!

Harmony: Welcome back! Great to have another TTC buddy in the group! :)

Marina: That's a great sign that your experiencing pregnancy hormones! Honestly, with my last miscarriage, I literally had zero symptoms. I wasn't emotional..nothing. My lines barely got darker. It just wasn't progressing like it should. I think the main thing for me was absolutely zero symptoms. AT least with Manolo, I was just super tired at the beginning even if I didn't experience anything else.

Sarah: You're so pretty! And what a cute bump!

Dev: So glad you're in a better mood..*hugs*

Star: The housing market is so crazy...*sigh*. I need to be better about my vitamins as well!

EOE: I'm sorry if I forgot anyone, I was just taking a quick break from..painting...lol!

AFM: I don't think I'm close to ovulating which is frustrating. Zero symptoms. CM is nonexistent and OPKS look exactly the same as they did 10 days ago. I did take soy again this cycle but I KNOW this house stress is what is delaying it. Can't wait until it's over! Also, my really good friend who had the exact same due date as me during my miscarriage cycle just found the gender. I was super happy for her, but I've been super emotional about it as well. That could have been me finding out the gender of my baby. ugh. Jealousy and sadness all rolled up into one big crazy emotional mess!

OAN here's a photo from Manolo's cake smash photo shoot..guys..he turns ONE next week. O M G..lol. Where did time go?

Danielle Your boy is so cute I love his hair. Great picture.

Moblina You are so right males eh. I think he just hates the stress ttc puts on our sexlife... He did say last night if I get pregnant he will give up drinking. He also said hes ready to give up our social partylifestyle I actual thing hes really ready. These words have never came out of his mouth before. Ohhh you got too love those pregnancy emotions and there is always never no warning to them.

Gaya Must be huge releive for you having told your boss. Great she took it so well :)

Star I hope your sleep pattern isnt too interrupted this month

Leah OMG your MEME is so me... This happens everytime I hate it.

Sarah very pretty cute bump

Danielle - what a cute boy!!! Eep! And I love that background. Absolutely adorable and perfect.

Moblina - Pregnancy hormones yikes! That's crazy but glad you could share and "cover".

Gaya - that would be so so illegal in Israel! Is it illegal in the US to discriminate based on pregnancy (not offer a promotion after finding out they are pregnant)? I know so many employers who were sued (and lost) with cases like that here. All the women had to do was show some written proof (email, whatsapp, anything) that a promotion was being discussed/potentially offered in the future, and if she doesn't get it and she's pregnant, the burden is on the employer to prove why the promotion wasn't given (the burden is not on the employee to prove why she should have received it). Are you protected from getting fired while pregnant? Just so interesting to me, the "land of the free", and how hard it can be on pregnant women, sick people, mothers, etc... I guess I'm sort of venting on behalf of all the women I know in the US who go through these things. Sorry that's a bummer you have to worry about it! Dr said I don't need iron until later on, and if it's making me sick then just to focus on taking the folic acid. And I measured at exactly 8 weeks 1 day on the day of the ultrasound :) I thought I was 1 week ahead of you too! Maybe my cycle is just short (I expected AF before you).

Leah - I saw that meme at some point and it's so true!

Harmony - hello!

Star - so true about the grape juice haha. What vitamins do you take? Been trying to remember my magnesium and vit b. Magnesuim is "nature' chill pill" supposedly (gosh I need it).

Last day of work before spring vacation! Can hardly keep my eyes open. We are going to husband's parents/family for Passover. We sent the parents a pic of the ultrasound and said we are RSVPing with one more family member. It was cute. And on the day of Passover when we arrive, we are putting my toddler in a tshirt that says, "This boy is getting promoted to big brother". See who catches on first. We're so excited to announce.

Okay - opinion poll! If DH snores, and you can't sleep (and you're pregnant and sick and all that, hmph) WHO SLEEPS ON THE COUCH?
