That's awesome hunnybunny!
Leo is still allergic? ugg. Hopefully not too much longer.

Eren- you're kids are so beautiful!

Oh and happy birthday to Madeline!

Wyatt is going to be 2 in a little less than 2 months. Growing so fast!

Speaking of TTC #2... for some reason this month, I've started really thinking about it. DH and I aren't real cautious, so I know it could happen... but this month, I dunno, maybe it's me being crazy (very likely), but I just feel weird. I've had very weird spotting and I'm still almost a week away from AF. So, anyway, I took a preg test today cuz I'm silly and it was negative, lol. But I'm only 8 days past O, :lol:

Knowing my cycles (and everyone else in this forum!) I'm prob just way off b/c I'm so irregular and not preggo. Anywhoo.. all this thinking has gotten me kinda wanting to TTC #2, but I am afraid to mention it to DH b/c I dont think he's quite ready to reallly try KWIM?

Hmm, I'll keep ya posted on what comes about.

Thanks for all the b'day wishes for Madeline , she really had a good b'day. Madeline will have to have tubes THursday. I hope it will make her better and she won't have as many ear infections.

Hunny- I am sorry Leo is allergic to milk. Hope they can figure out some answers for you. That is great the baby is doing well! I am so happy for you.

EMMO- They grow up so fast! Time flies by! I KWYM I kind of want to start on another one but don't know if my DH is ready. I don't want them to be to far apart. But I am taking BC pills right now. I thought about getting an IUD But don't think I want to wait 5 years for another baby! WHen the right time comes along, it will happen. FOr me, I think it is b/c my baby is 2 and that is why I want another one :lol: hmm IDK , I don't miss having to get up every 2-3 hours though. I like STTN stage :)

emmo - you will have to keep us updated, i hope you get a nice suprise.

ttc41 - yes leo is still allergic and it sucks his diet is so limited but we get by he usually has to have olive oil added to his food because he literally gets no fat apart from his formula milk.

well i decided to book a gender scan a month early than the anatomy scan and its in 2 weeks time i am so excited!
2 weeks and we know what we are having i have yet to suprise OH i am going to spring it on him on the day and not tell him where we are going! 8)

Well, I think I'm having a light AF now, so pretty sure I'm out. So.... I went back and looked at the calendar... Od on CD freakin 38 and started spotting 5 days past O. So, that just means I'm back to super duper irregular and I'm not happy about it. :mad:

I hadn't really been paying attention to my cyles b/c we haven't been TTC and it just seemed like they were somewhat regular, but not this month, nope. Just brings back all the miserable memories and frustration of TTC last time (you guys can feel my pain!)

So, blah...

Anyway, that's very exciting about the gender scan! Any hunches on what it is??

I would have been happy with either for number two, but I like having two girls. I have a sister myself, so I am used to that family dynamic, lol. Who knows though? Lily wasn`t planned. Were going to be a LOT more careful from now on and not planning on ttc again. However, we`ve decided not to take any permanent measures, but re-examine the situation (mainly financial) in about 4/5 years and make the final decision about a third child. I`d kind of like to try for a boy, but pregnancy and childbirth and sleepless nights again.... well they`re not so appealing...

Emmo - sorry your cycles are playing up.

Hunny - Can`t wait to find out what you`re having this time. I think I`ll guess girl. :)

ttc41 - A 3 year gap is considered a good gap in Japan for some reason. It means you`d have only one in junior high/high school at a time.

Interesting Eren- that must be why my brother and his wife (from Japan) have kids that are 3 years apart, lol.

I have a different idea about my genders... I want 3 kids, DH wants 2... so, I'd like to have my next one be another boy so that we "have to" try for a third one to attempt to get a girl. lol.

Hey guys- How did you get pregnant after the first? What did you take? I'm going to start doing just about everything I know of to try to get my cycles normal. Not that we are TTC yet, i just want to feel normal :( . I'm gonna take vitex and b6. Any other suggestions?

emmo- this worked for me. my cycles were bad from bcp, i took vitex 800 mg per day
soy isoflavones - 1 capsule per day cd 3-7 or 5-9
epo
dong quai
black cohosh

dont take dong quai or black cohosh on af they make it 10 times worse.

this worked within 2 cycles. i was ttc from march to july

Interesting hunnybunny- you took a lot of things. I wouldn't have thought to take it all together. Especially with the soy as well. I'm kinda afraid it would be too much. But it obviously worked for you!!
So now I 'm trying to decide what else I want to try... i still have epo and dong quai in my medicine cabinet from last time. Maybe I'll add those.
