Hi my lovely ladies. I was soo happy to see you all add me on facebook! I am glad you got to see pictures of my little man. The depression is slowly getting better, I am on a low dose anti-depressent and I take st johns wart. The hardest part for me was not being able to have the delivery I wanted, and then "failing" at breastfeeding really sealed the deal. I am still have quilty feelings about feeding Sam formula, but I am trying to deal with them, and reaching out to other formula feeding moms on the site. My husband also has OCD so there are days I feel quilty about dishes in the sink and not doing laundry or putting laundry away because he does sooo much of the cleaning. I know it doesnt bother him and I know he is just happy that I am feeling better, and taking care of Sam but there are so many emotions I am having that I never thought I would. My mom and sister are coming on April 21st and my mom will only be here for a few days since she has already come for a week and cant take anymore time off work but my sister will be staying for around two weeks so that is nice. Well I hope all the babies are doing well, I cant believe they are growing soooo quickly and there are soo many babies to be had just around the corner!!
Carly I dont have facebook so don't think its personal that I haven't added you. I'm sorry you didnt have the birth you wanted and that its affected you so hard, I really hope your feeling better about it soon
Shona I hope your move was quick and easy as possible! Where abouts in Scotland you moving too?
Natasha the photos are lovely! We got Kyles done with Pixie too, cost an absolute fortune but worth it
Natalie just seen your new avatar, Saranna has gotten so big! Shes beautiful
I hope everyones bumps/babies are doing well! I've been working as much as I can lately before finishing up, and on my days off I try to spend as much fun time with Kyle while I can. We picked a girls name, and DFs cousin had a little girl 2 weeks ago and used it so our child will be nameless it is a girl My cyst has grown but not greatly so surgery will be after bubs is born unless some drastic happens beforehand which isnt likely. My midwife is coming on thursday to run through a home birthing check list and speak to us about all the risks we're taking etc.. its exciting :happydance
I wouldnt worry about your girls name tbh, unless you see your cousin more than a couple times a year. Don't settle for a name you don't love just because a cousin has the same name. But maybe bub is a biy and it wont matter anyway
I know, Sara is getting so big hey? 3 1/2 months old already!
Carly im sorry to hear you've had problems breastfeedjng and have pnd don't blame yourself. Not everyone can breastfeed - sometimes its supply and often its lack of proper help/support, but good on you fir trying. Sam has an awesome mommy - you're doing a great job
Arlene I can't believe how far along you are. It won't be long now. I'm glad you won't have to have surgery until after your little bean arrives. Take care of yourself and your little bean.
Shona you're moving right along as well. Sorry you're still suffering from the headaches, and I hope your move was quick and painless.
Carly I echo what Nat has said. Try not to be to hard on yourself, because Sam has an AWESOME MOM!!!!
AFM I'm in the middle of my IVF cycle and have egg retrival tomorrow morning. I'm nervous and excited all at the sametime. I really hope this is it for me as this giving yourself shots everyday is no easy task. LOL Hope the rest of the Moms and Moms to be on here and are doing well. Take care ladies.
How'd did everyone get so far!? It seems like yesterday you all got your BFPs in the other group!
Adrienne - I hope the egg retrieval went well!!!!!
Arlene - I can't believe you're almost 34 weeks! How exciting!
Carly - You're a fantastic mom! Sam is absolutely adorable!
Hope everyone else is well!
I'm over 14 weeks now, and so ecstatic to be in 2nd tri. Never thought I'd get to this point. Doc appt next week, and I should be able to make the big gender ultrasound after that appointment. I'm dying to know what this little peanut is!

Thank you ladies. . you guys are soo sweet and I love coming on here!
Adrienne- I pray the egg retrieval goes well and IVF is a success for you, I can only imagine how hard it is for you, but just keep the good thoughts going and I know you will be blessed!!
Amy-Cant wait to hear the gender annoucement!! Hope your watching secret life, its the only show I still make sure I catch, I could care less about any other tv shows but me and sam have a bottle and watch the show each week!!
Natalie- Thank you for making me feel better about breastfeeding. I am glad its going well for you, as well as cloth diapering.I dont know if you ever check out youtube but look up naturesknockout she is all about natural stuff and she clothe diapers and talks all about it and some other really cool natural baby stuff, and she is breastfeeding as well.
I have been trying to find solace in knowing I can try to breastfeed our next child. I pray they will have an easier time latching on, and hopefully my supply will satisfy them. I think I will reach out for more help next time instead of trying to figure it out on my own. I hope all you lovely ladies are still in my life so I can get all the advice I can about it and read more about your experiences. But next baby wont be for awhile however I cant help thinking it would be nice them back to back, but my husband would never go for it. My mom and sister get here on friday and I cant wait!!! My sister will be staying for two weeks and she truely is my best friend so its going to be amazing even just sitting around the house we can have fun with each other.
