I am excited to see what you are having this time, ALiKO!
Incredible birth story, kksy! I am a huge proponent of natural birth - preparation would likely have made it less traumatic for you! Especially since your baby came so quickly, you might consider (if you go for #3) taking some natural birth classes in case you run out of time again and honestly, keeping a bag with gloves, a clean towel, things to tie off the umbilical cord, etc. in your car in case you don't get to the hospital. My bff from work had her second in a similar fashion. She's working on #3 now, so I'll let you know how that works out for her. I am super biased (as my son is Nathaniel H.), but I his name!
Momwithbabies, great news about your tubes! We tried the month after my HSG (and almost nine months following it) before we got our keeper BFP. I hope your path is much less rocky.
Newbie/ Melann - I feel you both on the sleeping issues, I think we just survived our first sleep regression (which was terrible and I even had to take a day off work to recover from the lack of sleep). He goes to sleep on his back most of the time, but now can roll over. We did end up co-sleeping, which I was super against in theory. We basically have created a safe sleep environment per all the recommendations, just between us on a king size bed, no where near pillows or blankets (or us, really) and that helped a lot. He will go to sleep on his own - like right now, he's in the middle of my full size guest bed (again without pillows or bedding), but he will wake up in time to go to bed with us, always does, like he has a sixth sense that tells him when it's our bedtime!
Oh, I feel your frustration! I can't remember the cycle after mine, but then my cycle days were all over the place anyway. Will your doctor send you for a blood test? I have my fingers crossed for you.
How are you all? Life for me has been crazy with a newborn and back working full time already. I'm getting into a routine but I'm exhausted. Counting the days until summer... I only get five weeks off but I'm looking forward to that.
Hi, Newbie! Glad to hear you're doing well! Yes, that time off will be so good!!! How's the baby doing?
I've been down lately, but the anniversaries are always the hardest. I will forever connect this time of year with losing my baby, but I'm trying to hold it together since Easter is almost here. I'm going to start seeing a counselor later this month, so I can hopefully cope better.
I can't wait for summer, too! This teacher needs a break! I'm trying to move from teaching 8th grade to elementary school. After 7 years, I might need a change.
