thank you, ladies! We are doing great! I think the 'twin' thing has sunk in, for now at least. Until 2 babies pop out!! DH hasn't said much about them being boys, I think he's just excited that they are healthy. And I think he's a bit more tuned in - he doesn't talk about his feelings that much, he prefers to stay as even-keeled as possible and not put too much into one thing over another if, in the end, it doesn't 'matter'. So healthy kids, either gender, was good with him. But I asked him if he wants to come to the next scan, which is just the monthly check, or skip it and he said he'll see. I actually expected him to be good with this scan for the time being and come to one later, so I read into that that he's more keyed in now. ahhh my husband - complicated soul, he is.

spud - that is WONDERFUL news about the company and DH coming to be with you!! Sounds like things are really aligning for you. And go ahead and try to start your own thing with the photography! What have you got to lose! I bet you'll keep gaining confidence, the more experience you get. But jump over that first hoop to get your name out there. Maybe do some pro bono stuff first to get experience working with clients and get your name out there? Make business cards? I'm excited for you - I think this is just fantastic.
That said, i'm really sorry to read about your aunt. I know you didn't 'know' her but yes, still a shock and something people you are probably closer to in your family are affected by.

taurus - thank you! I'm envisioning different things now - boys running around thinking they are dinosaurs/robots/aliens, jumping off of things they shouldn't be on in the first place, mud, mud, mud, but hilarious little creative minds. Also thinking on my own history, it's probably going to be more of a fit for me with boys - I'm more tomboy (as terri said, i think?) - sportsy, grew up with my male cousin as more of a brother so played cops & robbers and flag football and such with him. I never took too closely to girls - I never got into Barbies or dolls or princess stuff. Couldn't be bothered with it. So I would probably be more lost with girls!

miki - that's great that your work friends gave you some things! I agree with Terri - see? people care! HA!

wicky - wow, you have my admiration - you are handling things so well and have a positive perspective on things. I love where your mind is at on the TWW - that will get you far if you can maintain that level of sanity. It'll probably waiver, mine totally did. But the months I was zen were actually my BFP months! I just felt happy and content and calm. My best to you.

hello to everyone else! where are you in your cycles?

Wish, so glad to hear your DH is starting to feel more connected. I hope this means you can both get excited now!

I wanted to pop in to update on me... I took a FRER last night and got a very faint line, and same this AM (no change). I am cautiously optimistic that this could be a BFP, but I'm also aware that by testing at 9 and 10 dpIUI (11 and 12 days after trigger), I could potentially just be seeing the last of the trigger. However, when I tested at this point last cycle, I got stark white tests. So I'm trying to be positive but am still uncertain if this is really IT because I tested before my RE said I should. Only time will tell, so I'll keep you updated!

Since I've never had line porn to share before and it seems like it's been awhile since we've had tests to ogle on here, I thought I'd share the test from this morning. It's a really faint line, but definitely pink. Too bad I won't know if it's the trigger or a BFP for at least another day. It's still fun to share, though! FX that this month's zen is all the baby dust I need... Oh, the test was FMU on a frer at 10 dpIUI/12 days post trigger.

Thanks, Terri!

Quick update - DW convinced me to test again tonight and it was definitely darker. I think this is my and it's starting to sink in. The picture is attached, so you can see the progression. Since it's darker, I am fairly sure this isn't left over from the trigger. AHHHHHhhhhhh!!! I will, of course, feel better when I see some darker lines and get bloods done, but I'm not sure if my RE will order bloods until after 9/16, since that's when she said I should test. I'll keep everyone posted, but it's looking really good!

Wicky, I think it looks like that’s a BFP for you! So exciting Hehe, I’ll be sure to post when the cats react to gummy’s kicks.

Terri- Yeah, you were right... people do care! Hey it’s true, my mom is weird. The rest of the family is ok. Good thing my mom is very concerned about keeping up appearances, so even though she is not excited at all, she tries to seem like she is. That’s good enough for me! Oh yeah, virtual shower...I’d definitely invite you if I had one! How’s your job going these days?

TTC- Are you doing ok?

Spud- Wow, lots going on. What an amazing trip you're on, and how wonderful that DH has agreed to stay in England for a year. And you’re free from your business now! I’m so sorry about your aunt, I hope that you and your family are coping with the loss.

Wish- Thanks, it’s nice that people do care! It sounds like you’ll have a blast with your twin boys! I too grew up a tomboy and never had any dolls. I had a big collection of cars and lego bricks instead. I grew up with my male cousin too. I think that if I had a girl, she might be a tomboy too. How are you feeling physically these days? How does your belly feel, is your bump very obvious now?

MsR, Vonn- How are you and your babies doing?

OOOOOOOH WICKY!!!! THIS IS IT!!! I'm so excited for you!!!! You guys need this happy news right now!! YAHOOOOOOO!!

miki - oh yes, the bump is quite obvious now! Mentally I'm feeling great. Physically - starting to get a little uncomfortable at times. I can't sit in my normal spot on the couch at night anymore - I've moved to the loveseat where I can lay back and put my feet up to see the TV. And still waking up just about 6 hrs on the dot from when I fall asleep every night, which is early (around 9). So I toss and turn trying to get comfortable. I can no longer lay completely flat on my back b/c of that vein thing - I feel nauseous. That all goes on for about 2 hrs until I fall back to sleep. Every night. Lastly, sitting at my desk is getting to me - I am going to try to adjust myself ergonomically to see what works best but I think it just is what it is!!
Note that all of this is NOT complaining!! I still love every second of this entire experience!

How about you, miki? Are you feeling ok? Is being on your feet all day getting to you at all? Were you able to manage through the chemical smells and such?

rainy - haven't heard from you in awhile besides your WRONG guess on the twins how are you?

terri - updates on your Bal'more life please! how's your Dad? is he out gallivanting around the country with some lady friends? Did you end up getting a property mgmt company for your rental yet or did you say you were going to wait until one more time with your tenant?

ask / all / bear - how are you ladies doing?

and yes, mrs and vonn - how are the little girls doing?

spud - if you have any gorgeous pics of the french countryside or other drool-worthy shots, please share!!

taurus - if you have any tips on how to understand little boys, throw them at me! But everyone seems to say they are the snuggliest little sweethearts until about 7. And I've been 'studying' my friend's 5 yr old son (part of boy/girl twins) and he does stuff like FULLY believing he turns into a velociraptor and ROWRRRRRRing at us. I have to say - I give it a 10 for impressions!

anyone I missed, I'm sorry! I do hope you're well and look forward to updates!
