Natalie- how are you doing? Any ultrasounds yet??

Afm- this week has been crazy with homework and studying for my certification exam... Luckily I either pass or fail tomorrow- hoping for the first of course, lol.. So sun we meet him!!!!! It'll be at Dave and busters so hopefully less pressure and less anxiety..

I hope everyone is doing well!!!

Super! Last minute second date huh! Well I hope you can make it so our young man and the social workers can make up their minds to entrust you withr him! Hope it all works out to the will of God.
I'm so tired today but hoping to squeeze in 4 miles no matter what. Got the race to train for. Hoped for the trail but as its rating darker, darn tread mill may have to do. Natalie? U alright?

Lori, omg, this is just wonderful. Hopefully the second get together went well. Looks like your household is expanding.

Damaris, nice running routine. Unfortunately I am not getting into the swing of things as far as exercising.

Natalie, hopefully your ultrasound is going well.

Myself, had a little medical mystery going on and unfortunately blood, urine and stool test didn't reveal anything. All my levels are good. Maybe just caught the bug but don't think so. I know how my body reacts and it just wasnt normal. Long story short started about two weeks ago going gluten free on areas such as bread, sandwich meat/coldcuts, some meats and cheese, noodles, cereal etc. Some items I still eat regular as in grain or wheat but usualy eat fresh fruit and pickles with it and I am good. Noticed coffee and sugar rubs my tummy the wrong way lately and so minimizing these items too.

Difference from before: absolutely no bloating or excessive gas which I tupically had 4-5 days before af so my tummy remains flatter, no headaches even weather changes which is great, reduction in vitamin and supplement intake, no pelvic pain such as feelings like needles stabbing or ovaries/tubes on fire which is a total relief, sleep better at night even without melatonin and a few other things. So based on the differences I am experiencing I assume that I am somewhat borderline endometriosis case which based on my laps are not in my ovaries or uterus or tubes. So I am assuming maybe have slight endo either behind my vagina bordering the rectum ( as some blood in stool only 4-5 dahs before af) or further up close to the esophagus area as that latter was always extremely painful due to pressure and dull ache and so doctors thought possible early stage esophogus cancer but all biopsies came back normal and free of any trace. Anyhow sorry for the long post but I am sure there is someone out there that has similar symptoms but keeps getting the green light from doctors too.

Other that that thought we as in my hubby and I finally were able to move on from loosing our babies but now my hubby keeps thinking with every symptom that I am pregnant. So I merely take it as he is praying that it will magically happen naturally one of these days as he still hasn't agreed to concur a second round of ivf and fet if necessary. But I am good either way now.

My new job is wonderful and a perfect fit. Enjoy the company stability, my coworkers and the heathly and positive working environment. Needless to say keeps me busy.

My church keeps me busy and I enjoy spending time with the little ones. They always seem to flock to me. My pastor says its my quiet and patient ways with the little ones. Must be practise I gained with my two wild boys when they were younger.

Anyhow hope all will go well for each and every one in this little group. Have a wonderful Sunday evening.
All our babies have become angels now!!

Hello everyone! Good to see all these posts as usual. Lori,things are going well, yes? Extra gifts under the Christmas tree ought to be really nice!
Natalie, it is autumn here too but being in Austin TX, can't say I see much change lol! In Kansas City I loved the evolution of the trees and grass. Fall is what you hear more Americans talk of really. Either way, it is race season here in Austin! Just ran 9 miles this morning in just under 2 hours. 5 mills of constant hills and boy was i winded with each elevation! then 4 miles of the trail which still sadly had some dips too! But i needed the practice coz it is the same track the race I signed up for is going to be. My running partner is also from Kenya and boy does she keep me in check! That was my longest run ever. So I am gearing for my 10 miler just fine lol!
Patricia, it is going to be well. Us women have a way of finding joy and peace in whatever situation we find ourselves in. Wallowing in coulda, woulda, shoulda doesn't help our spirits at all does it. I am happy that you are ok either way your situation falls in. You teach Sunday School? My brother taught sunday school and the kids adored him!
Almost forgot. I just swang by GNC to pick up Fertility Blend. Been reading good reviews on them and finally decided to start on it. They have one for men too and hubby said to pick up a bottle for him too so I will get his tomorrow. Says to use it for at least 3 cycles before expecting any change but from the reviews, many saw changes within 2 cycles. So I am excited. My poor herbs never made it so I stopped hoping and my mom being in the village is not so proactive when it comes to mailing stuff. So I do not bother her about them.
So this Ebola stuff is really scary. Dallas is 2 hrs from me where the 1st US patient died. Following all precautions when I work as I should.
Fun stuff: Homeland is baaaaaack!! and this new show How to Get Away with Murder is something else! Caught myself sucked into it despite an already full plate of Sleepy Hollow, Blacklist, and Homeland. I just started season 1 of Downton Abbey. Good stuff!
Did I fail to say I quit my teaching job? Whole lot of mess there! I had had it. First time quiting with immediate notice. I felt bad for the students but I just had to leave.
That's a lot of typing. Can you tell this time I used a laptop and not my phone? LOL!
Good day y'all!

Hi girls just to let u know that I had my scan on Thursday and all is fine! What a relief! So I am officially excited now! And we have started telling friends etc. It still feels quite surreal actually!

Damaris-your fertility blend sounds interesting and exciting! I dont think ive ever had a 28 day cycle! Fx and baby dust!

Lori-did u have any more meetings yet? I cant wait to hear!

And Patricia-did u get anywhere with solving the medical mystery? Hope u are feeling good. Any other news? I, like you am starting to think of Christmas a little. We do not have thanks giving here. Damaris-that made me laugh as u forgot that u call it 'fall' and not autumn!

Enjoy ur weekend x

Sorry ladies. I meant to post but just always something.

Lori, how did the unsupervised visit go? Did this young man provide any feedback too?

Natalie, relieved to hear baby on board doing well. Christmas should be a wonderful time for you all.

Damaris, right there with you. Sometimes you have to let go of a job to be blessed with a better opportunity. More power to you.

Myself, since going partially gluten free feel much better. So will keep track and see how it will go in the future. Other than that my son decided college wasnt for him at the moment as he doesnt feel his head is were it needs to ne. He likes to concentrate on finding a full time job and hopes that by next summer he is ready to re-enter college.

My little man is cruising along and enjoying himself as his 18th is fairly approaching.

Other than that we might take over guardianship go a newbie baby boy soon as the young mother needs help straightening things out. But this is all still in the very early preliminary stages and sadly wouldnt surprise me if it would change. He is a cutie though and bottom line we just like to make sure mom and baby are fine.

As far as church I am not an official Sunday School Teacher but merely assist in capacities as needed. Little ones just always tend to flock to me and I have the patience needed. I also help out with secretarial duties and provides guidance for younger members.

I will check in as events are unfolding. But for now my own personal approach to TTC is not very high on my agenda.

Have a wonderful week.
All our babies have become angels now!!
