Happyshopper, please pop by whenever you want! Love to hear from all our fellow spotters! Was just thinking about Yum the other day. I hope she is getting on well.
Well girls, I am officially done BF! I thought I would be more sad about it, but Gabby doesn't seem to care, and now I don't have to share my boobs! I stopped on Saturday, and DH has been putting her to bed since then. She has no interest in rocking with him in our rocking chair, he just goes in, turns on her music and projector, and puts her in the crib, where she stays and talks to herself for a good 20 min and then fall asleep. Also big news in daycare is that she has moved to a toddler room! This means napping in COTS and no more high chairs! My baby is growing up! She has napped beautifully in the cots this week, and eats from a bowl with a spoon and fork (although not well, and still uses her hands a lot), but sits at the kids table instead of in a high chair. So many changes. Makes me very sad to see her grow up so fast, but also so happy to see her learning and catching on to things. So many mixed emotions! I think DH and i have decided to TTC starting in November when we go on our cruise. I don't want gabby to be an only child if i can help it, even if it means my life may be a bit more hectic for a few years. I'm sure we can work it out. That thought is both scary and exciting at the same time.
Congrats Chloe! Glad to hear it went smoothly. And I can't wait to hear how sleeping in a cot goes!
For us, H has been going through his last wonder week, so he has been crying a bit more when we put him down at night, and waking once at night crying but he goes back to sleep pretty soon by himself. It's just sad for me to hear that because he had been doing so great at just laying down and going right to sleep. It'll improve though, so I'm not worried.
He has his first dentist appt tomorrow morning, we picked a very kid friendly pediatric dentist. I actually noticed this past weekend that he chipped his front tooth at some point. Very very minor, I'm sure I'm the only person to notice, so I'm hoping they will file it down to be even.
His favorite word lately is No. Even when he means yes. So we've had lots of discussions of "Did you mean to say yes?" "Yesh" "Okay, good"
haha, daydream, that is funny about the no meaning yes thing. Gabby has a similar confusion where she thinks 'poo poo' means both pee and poop, and 'mommy' means both me and 'i want that!' She will point to something and just yell 'mommy mommy mommy!!!'
And you will have to let us know how the dentist goes! I should probably bring gabby in, although i didn't put her on my dental plan yet, since she only had 1 tooth as of sign up time last year, so we thought we could put it off until she turned 2. So we will probably be going to the dentist in early january. Still haven't decided on a dentist, as DH and i go to different ones. Mine doesn't have a specific kid friendly office. Not sure about DH's dentist office tho.
Gob, they do grow so fast! Its scary! Can't believe yours is 2 months already! Just wait for the rolling over, laughing, grabbing at toys, it all comes so quickly you wonder where your tiny little helpless baby is! but its great fun to watch them grow
We just got back and the dentist went great! They just looked at his teeth and soft palate, all are good. He was such a little charmer. It was great because the dentist was sooo good with kids and he was happy the whole time. Now we just have to start flossing.
Glad the dentist went well for H! Also, I noticed your signature says NTNP. Yay! I hope things go smoothly.
Chloe, I'm glad you have your boobs back. Haha. Also, that's exciting that Gabby is moving to the new daycare room.
Nothing to report here really. Stella isn't crawling yet. We spent the weekend away at a wedding with another couple and their baby (born two days after S). He's crawling around like mad so it was funny to see her watch him. I want her to learn how but I'm not exactly stoked at the prospect of chasing her around
SB - Oh yes crawling definitely is a game changer, enjoy the immobility while it lasts!
And yes, we are officially NTNP, though really have been very lax about protection for the last few months. It actually would be best for our family to not conceive until Sept-Dec, but since I think I'm having the same fertility issues, we are just being very casual about it and whatever happens happens. I had six days of spotting last month, so that's kind of depressing. I'm also really putting in the effort to start watching what I eat and exercising, so I hope that a few months of that will put me in a good spot for whenever we actually are TTC.
It's strange to me, but I actually really would rather that we not have to TTC and I can actually be somewhat surprised when we finally do get a BFP. It would be such a nice change after our last pregnancy where we ended up needing three IUIs to get there.
That would be great if you got a nice surprise daydream!! We are sort of NTNP. I am trying to not dtd when I could be O'ing. After we did on Sunday though I realized I should Ov on Wednesday. The OPK showed a faint line today but I'm not too worried.
Chloe, I forgot to say congrats on making the decision to have a second. It's exciting to have a date in mind to start trying.
I've been posting on the spotting thread on and off. Unfortunately there haven't been any BFPs on that thread for absolutely ages. I checked again today after not posting on there for a while and there still haven't been any I have had the pre-AF spotting ever since coming off the pill. I still haven't managed to conceive again and although it looks like I might have a problem with one of my tubes (the information I have been given has been a bit vague) I still have no answer as to whats wrong. The spotting has got a lot better but I still get it and still no BFP! I am booked in for IVF (privately funded as we are at the end of our tether and our CCG want us to wait another year before they agree funding - as if - I would be 35 by then!). I have my consultation in the next couple of weeks. Did anyone on this thread get their BFP after having IVF? If you did then did you still get the spotting? I am so worried that its not going to work.
Ok....my message has been erased twice ( a long one grrrrr) so:
-Bun, I'm sorry, I often visit the other page hoping to see a BFP. I wish you the best. Keep us posted.
-Me: mad at UK passport office. Delays of more than 8 weeks for baby J's passport. I have to stay in Spain for at least another month, whilst DH is in Vietnam missing us both.
-Baby J: absolute darling. Sleeping this last week at night only waking once! Yay! But daytime naps can be very hard sometimes....
That's about it! lol
