Hey all. Just wanted to confirm that I saw the new thread. Not much going on with me. I have all the pg symptoms and we did everything at the right time so....who knows!!?? CD27 and AF due in about 5-7 days. I am not getting my hopes up. I always have pg symptoms...just some months is worse/better than others.

Keep my fingers crossed for you Shauna! I hope your interview goes well and the $ is good! Tanya, so what else are you doing? Does your RE do cd17 progesterone tests? Do you BBT?

 

mommy2josh - January 15

Jen, thank you for starting a new thread. Good luck at the interview. Kathy, BBT is out of the question, because DS gets up in the middle of the night to pee and stuff, so I dont get achance to get at least 4 hours of uninterupted sleep. And when I tried to take my BBT, I would forget about it half of the time. Shauna, nice to hear from you. Good luck, hopefully this is your month :)

Hey girls found you. I went to sleep at a decent hour last night I was just up a lot tossed and turned alot. Anthony is off school today so around 1030am I stared at the clock and I thought there is no way he is still sleeping I all of a sudden got real nervous went to his bedroom he has a bunk bed climbed up the stairs saw a cat sleeping in his spot my heart dropped ran downstairs hes just sitting playing on his laptop. Hes like whats wrong I said I thought something happened to you. He said no I didnt want to wake you and where would i go I know better. I said thank you my heart attack is now gone. I get really weird dreams and some of them are really awful one was that something happened to him while he was sleeping so i jumped out of bed. Well anyway BROOKE I really like the Hudson actually never even thought of that name its cool. TANYA I think the latest I O'd on Clomid was cd16 but that was the absolute latest for me. I hate Clomid. Are you guys gonna seek another option maybe it just doesnt work for you theres got to be a better med out there for you thats the right one. JD wish you luck the possible new job but not on those hours. Those are messed up hours sister. I thought midnites sucked but that kinda takes the cake. Well girls I have had no bleeding at all for 2 days I do have cramping though it could be uterus stretching related or actually the cramps that I have come to know and love. LOL. The hematoma hadnt shrunk on Thursday so I am sure it hasnt disappeared that quickly it could be building up again. So I am cautiously optimistic Also today is my last progesterone injection I am so excited it hurt so bad last night. I started crying. But tomorrow its pill time for the next several months and I can definitely handle that. Well I will be back later. Hi to everyone.

Hi everyone! Jd, thanks for starting the new thread. I hope you have a great interview. What kind of work have you been doing for the past six years? Tanya, I hope you get a + opk soon. I can understand how temping would be out of the question if you're up in the middle of the night. Kathy, how's your dad doing? Robyn, i'm glad you have gotten a reprieve from bleeding!! I hope it stays away. I hate that feeling, when you think someting is wrong with your child. Thank goodness your shots will be over. Do you go for another u/s this week? When we went yesterday we got some 3d pictures, it was amazing. We also got to see his brain, heart, fingers, oh and the little wienie too!! I still can't believe that I will have two boys. Everyone we know has little girls or one of each. I was teasing dh that he must have some fast boy swimmers. Oh, whenI did that Cheri prediction for fun, she was right about conception month and the gender. Maybe a coincidence!

 

mommy2josh - January 15

We just put our dog down. He was 15 and we couldn't watch him suffer anymore:( I dont know what to say to DS, he is very attached to Spike. Any suggestions?

 

cmelissa - January 15

JD thanks for strating the new thread!! Mommy2josh so sorry about your dog - we have to put our 16 year old when down last month and it was so sad!! I posted a long message on the old thread hope everyone had a chance to read it. Well hope everyone has a great day! I'm working today didnt get the holiday off :(

 

bl - January 15

Tanya, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. That must be awful. I wish I had some advice to give you about telling Josh, but I just don't know. I know death is a very tough subject with kids.

 

cmelissa - January 15

I just went back and read our old thread! Thanks so much everyone regarding the well wished for my dad!! mommy2 josh - what type of lymphoma did your dad have? WHere was it?? So sorry for your loss as well. Brooke congrats on your little BOY!! Boys are so sweet!!!

 

ROBYN - January 15

TANYA - I am so very sorry. When we had to put my cat to sleep which was my other baby unexpectedly 2 years ago I was devastated for a while. Anthony was told the truth he cried also but we told him Cali was in heaven with grandma and poppops dog JD so they will have fun together. Its still hard for me I loved that animal so much. But in our case a week later we rescued two cats and now we have Wyatt and Doc and they are awesome. So in our case we had to have more animals plus I had had my other cat Vox and she loved to play all the time so they were all able to have one another. I am sorry there is really no easy way to do it. BROOKE i have another u/s Thursday. I agree I hope its a repreive also at least for a while. Thats awesome you were able to see so much already and a 3-D u/s did you ask for that or do they just do that? MEL - i did read your long post I am very sorry about your dad I hope he will get better you are in my thoughts. Anyway gonna continue to rest I will be back.

good morning ladies - I just have a second as I'm running out to get my haircut (finally!!), but I wanted to respond to Tanya before I go - I'm sorry about the dog, but there is a great children's book that I got for my dd when my Dad passed away and she was 3 y.o. - it helped explain death and the grieving process its called "I'll always love you" by Hans Wilhelm. I used it when I was teaching too and it is a wonderful conversation starter for kids. Anyway I'll check back in later - Oh congrats Brooke on having a boy- I of course love the middle name you've picked!! :)

 

mommy2josh - January 15

Caron, I am not totally sure about the type of lymphoma, as I said they kept alot from my, but I know the lyphnodes which were affected were somewhere by the ears I think.

 

mommy2josh - January 15

Thanks guys, but I still dont know what I will say to him. He is such a sensitive child, dont know if he is ready for the truth. Robyn, I am not getting anymore pets. I cant stand the mess that comes with the cats, such as litter and hair, though I love cats. And I will not get another dog until dh or I are retired. Its not fair to the animal to have no one pay the them attention.

 

ROBYN - January 15

Tanya I understand its a personal decision and dog is a major committment we thought about getting a puppy also but I love my cats and they have each other and we play with them all the time Anthony loves them so much he begs for a dog but I know the responsibility would so fall on me. Then you have to find people to watch it when you go away and thats a lot to ask of someone. With my cats I have one of my girlfriends come over everyday just change the litter and feed them its a lot easier. I think Brooke recommended a book for Josh. Anthony cried too but he realizes that nothing lives forever trust me I took it alot worse than he did I was a basketcase i couldnt look at a picture of my cat until recently its still hard.

 

wannabeamom - January 15

Tanya, I am sorry about your dog. I put my dog down in May. It breaks my heart thinkin gabout it. I have his son still but he is 13. I am not sure what to tell children about death, but have faith you will find the right words. About the clomid, how are you being monitored by your doc? Robyn, glad you are doing ok. Well I have my cd10 u/s Wednesday morning. I go back to work tomorrow. I wish I worked closer to home. I work 45 minutes away. I know it is not too bad but I'd still like to be closer. I have to go to the grocery store so I will check back later. Hi to all the girls here!
