Merry Christmas ladies! Life has been hectic for you all as well I'm sure. I hope each of you have enjoyed the holidays. I have tried to focus less on TTC and more on life. Trying to get health issues under control. I've been on bed rest for awhile because my sciatica was at a scary level. I am getting better tho. Waiting game to have a CT scan of my gallbladder and then they will decide if I start new fertility meds or if it needs to come out first. I've been on antionflammatories because of the sciatica so thankfully the gallbladder has been under control. So we are just pushing along. We had a nice Christmas in GA. I hate that it is hot here though. Didn't feel like Christmas and then in WA I would've had my first ever white Christmas. But with the health issues my daddy and brother had been facing I wanted to be here so we did. There's always time for more white Christmases, God willing. Anyway, I just wanted to say I have thought of all of you just never time to pop in. I graduated a few weeks ago with my Master's in Psychology. So the year is ending pretty amazing for me. I hope the same for all of you!
Leetie - Wonderful to hear from you! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and Christmas with your family.
TTC - Glad that you've been focusing on your health, it's very important. Sorry to hear you've been on bed rest, I hope that things continue to get figured out and under control. Congrats on graduating from your Masters!!
AFM - Christmas was too chaotic this year. I got influenza on Wednesday and Christmas evening after we got home from dinner Amelia started violently vomiting. It's been a long couple of days with her being sick. She went nearly 24 hours without being able to hold down water so I took her to Children's urgent care, they gave her Zofran and fluids. When we got home she slept through the night. This morning she woke up and was sluggish and couldn't drink so I'm thankful they sent us home with Zofran for her, she had half a tablet and I've given her applesauce and chicken broth through the day with water and breast milk. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
Dragonfly- sorry to hear you and your family were sick. There is so much of that going around this year. I hope you feel better, and I'm so happy to see that this bean is sticky.
Things here are good- Liam just turned 4 months and is such a happy baby. He has been sleeping through the night pretty much for 2 months, so we feel lucky, if a little worried that it cannot last.
A confession- we've been NTNP since Thanksgiving. Something about the holidays made us feel like not being cautious. I would really love another baby, but it would be really hard with work and I have these health issues, so I'm torn. Well, New Year's Eve we DTD and wouldn't you know, I ovulated on New Year's Day. We'll see what happens, it was so hard to get pregnant with Liam that we're not really believing it will happen again on its own.
Hi ladies! We're all doing well but busy. I started back at work in January and miss being home, but enjoy adult conversations again. Liam turns 6months sonn- I can't believe how fast it goes! He's sitting and I bet he'll crawl soon. We're very much in love with him this Valentine's Day.
Dragonfly- they are both doing ok. My daddy goes to a new Dr on Friday to see what is going on. The other Dr was a headache but we have hopes for the new one.
Xan- can't believe he will be 6 months soon. Life passes so fast.
AFM - I'm in PT for my back and I had acupuncture for the first time on Monday. She said it might get worse before it gets better and she wasn't lying. I was so happy to have PT yesterday. My PT lady spent the whole hour massaging me. I have inflammation and major tightness so she tried to massage it out some (Happy Valentine's day to me lol) the acupuncture lady also put some needles in for fertility. Hard to believe in June it will be 4 years we have been trying. But thankfully I'm getting everything in order so that it happens for us soon. I had a CT scan last week about my gallbladder so once that is figured out the fertility Dr wants to start meds asap. So we have hope. I'm so glad to hear from y'all. I really hope Leetie is doing well. I've had her on my mind. Valentine's day is hard, so many baby announcements but hopefully her and I will get there or maybe she got there. Either way, hoping she's well too.
TTC - Excellent to hear you're taking care of yourself! I hope your Dad's new doctor is a good one, it's so hard finding new doctors.
Xan - This pregnancy has been so different! First trimester still sucked, but so far no heartburn like I had with Amelia. My stomach is growing a lot faster and we're measuring a week ahead. It's been an anxious pregnancy but Tuesday we find out the gender and I think I'll relax a lot more after the anatomy scan.
