Aw, such sweet baby photos, everyone! I would love to show off my own Little Monkey but I can get squirrely about privacy. Even on my FB I mostly post photos of him in very private photos that only immediate family members can see. Then another setting just for extended family (plus two of my best friends who are like family) and my general friends' list sees hardly anything.

I had a huge beer craving the other day and I normally don't drink beer. I saw a poster and it looked so cool and delicious and refreshing. ha ha

You sound just like my DH. He's very particular abt pictures. He believes some pictures are private and should only be shared with family and select ppl.

I'm not a huge beer person but I do like Coronas.

Hi ladies! Gonna try to catch up now. Yesterday was nuts. Sorry in advance for being all over the place. Just replying to stuff as I read it.

I agree BFing is so rewarding. It is a lot of work those first few weeks, but after a while it does get sooo much easier. I did it while working FT, so the pumping part was not so fun. But still worth it.

Hee hee two under 2 will be a little nuts, but you can do it! I have a good friend with about the same age gap with her girls. I originally wanted mine two years apart, and my angel's due date was one day after my daughter's 2nd birthday. But alas. Now mine will be about 3 years, 8.5 mos apart. Which is okay. I think it just depends on the kids. My brother and I were 2 mos short of being 5 years apart, and we always got along great. Now it's different because he's kind of an idiot. But we love each other. The only time it was really hard was when I was getting older enough to not be into kid stuff, and he didn't understand why I didn't want to do kid stuff with him anymore. There are probably pluses and minuses to every age gap. I wanted my kids close, but it will be easier perhaps having them farther apart. And now DD can share in the excitement. And she's already eager to be a helper.

Starry I hope the next 7 weeks fly by. Even me being 9 weeks (whoa, just realized EDD is 7 mos from today!), I feel in a sense like it's forever away. Then in another sense it already seems like there's an impossible amount of stuff to do between now and then.

As for the bleeding with me, yeah I strangely have a sense of peace that things are going to be fine. Which is completely contrary to my worrywart nature. But it's still stressful and unnerving.

Starry seems reasonable to give yourself a year to make any permanent decisions. Understand being weary of the TTC.

We used to say definitely 2 with an optional 3rd. But I think deep down I really started to want that third. Now, though, I just don't know. I'm for sure never doing hormonal BC again, and I don't like the idea of an IUD for a few reasons. And I have physical problems with condoms and most lubes, so I don't dare do spermicidal things. And hubby is VERY RELUCTANT to join the v-club (I think after his BF tells him it's NBD he might not be AS averse, but idk). I think we're going to be extremely cautious for a year after delivery, then we're going to NTNP indefinitely. It'd be funny if I got pregnant easily as it has happened before. But if nothing changes from before this pregnancy, we may still end up with just our two. I'm just SOOOO looking forward to no stress of conceiving, no stress of having to DTD at certain times, no concern about using this lube or that. It takes its toll on a marriage. DH and I are still great and everything, but our sex life has always had SOME kind of strain, and the ttc/infertility is just the most recent one. But the other issues are seemingly resolved. If we have any semblance of peace that our family could be complete, maybe we can finally have a healthy and happy sex life. WHOA I just took this on a tmi tangent lol.

Yes, the "fill the pad in under an hour" thing is NUTS. The only person I've known (before you) to ever do that was literally on death's door.

So far the spotting has let up again. I just wish I could know when it's not coming back. I don't even feel all that relieved this time because I know it could just turn up again. But yes, having an explanation for it helps a ton.

I can. not. WAIT!!!! to feel movement again! I have missed that feeling so much. Last time I first felt it at 17+2, so hopefully being my 2nd pregnancy I'll feel something at least by then. 7-8 weeks to wait I guess. Feels like forever away.

I haven't taken any pictures of my bump/bloat yet this pregnancy. There's not much to see yet, but there's a little something. Maybe I can find some old photos later.

Unexpected your little man is ADORABLE!!!!

Tricia, what a handsome little tiny.

Starry I don't blame you for being cautious and not posting pics of your little guy.

And the one time I filled a pad under an hour I had two huge gushes within an hour and that was it. Though the first gush was mostly my waters. Then the m/c was over. I had passed everything and within a few hours I was down to spotting. Looking back, after that first hour it was the easiest m/c I went through physically....and that was the baby I lost at 12 weeks.

Blah.

Anyways....we don't do condoms much either. I found out the hard way that I'm most likely allergic to latex. When we made the switch to non-latex they became much better. It's still not our favourite but I refuse to go back on the pill (did horrible things to me while on it) and I'm not comfortable with IUDS. They're not 100% effective (know lots of girls who got pregnant on them) and then the pregnancy is at a higher risk....NOT what I would need or want. DH says he is very open and willing to be snipped so once we do reach that time we will be able to knock boots freely with nothing in the way!

I'm sick again. Seriously. I have caught every stomach bug since Christmas. This time it's not too bad so it's tough avoiding food. I'm trying to stick to plain toast but food still looks good even though it's making things worse.

Starry. Yeah my m/c was at 6 weeks, but that was less uncomfortable physically than a menstrual period. :-/

I don't have a latex allergy, I don't think. Because I can use latex gloves and it's no problem. But I had a lot of pain issues for years that only really got better after delivering DD. Before that, sex was always excruciating, or, at best, tolerable.

DH is willing to get snipped, but only after a 3rd. So what are my odds of my (potential) next pregnancy being twins? LOL oh dear. I've always joked about it, it'd really be something if it became a reality. It's one thing to say, "Oh we can do one more," and another to double the number of kiddos! This is just me letting my imagination get out of hand though. :P

Starry, I'm so sorry you're sick. How frustrating. Hope since you still have an appetite, maybe this is something that will come and go quickly. Really hope you're feeling better soon!

Okay I dug up some TBT pics. I posted them in another thread too, and even the thumbnails came out huge. But I'm too lazy to resize them. So I'm spoilering them for space.

Spoiler
Here's the last pic my mom took of me (that's why it's kinda blurry, she's kinda twitchy lol) before my DD was born. I should be right at 39 weeks. My daughter was born a few days later at 39+3. I'm glad she got this one because we got bad about taking pics toward the end. I wanted one right before or after we got to the hospital, before she was born. But ehhhh by that point I wasn't in the mood.


I guess I look pretty small in that pic, and I was smallish, but it's also partly how I was sitting there. The last pics we took at home, I was 36+4, and I look bigger in those. So surely I was bigger yet by 39 weeks.

Here's 36+4:


And here was our beautiful newborn.
