Dragonfly- I totally get the anxiety after a loss. For me 20 weeks was my point where I started to relax. We're thinking TTC again over the summer, I'm sure it'll be stressful.

It helps starting to feel movement. I'm pretty convinced my placenta is hiding baby because the little kicks are so low down and when they're picked up higher on the doppler I don't feel them at all.

I hope you won't feel stressed when you ttc #2.

Hey ladies, I hope you're all doing well

I just wanted to share we found out yesterday we're having another little girl! We're both still in shock because everyone has been guessing a boy. DH said he's so happy that they'll be sisters and have a special bond

Thank you Xan I keep thinking of names and suggesting them to DH but we both keep coming back to Madelyn.

Amelia and Madelyn, I think they sound nice together

Hi ladies- it's been a while. I hope everyone is doing well.

Mrs. Dragonfly- how are you doing? 34 weeks, so close to the end. I hope everything is going well with bubs.

So I just had a shock this morning- on a fluke I took a pregnancy test, the second cycle after Liam was born. My jaw almost hit the floor when it was positive. We weren't really trying, just got lucky with trying, and no fertility friend or anything. Liam just turned 9 months, so it feels like 9 months on, 9 months off and then...

Hi ladies- I guess I am feeling nostalgic and thought of all of you. I hope everything is going well with you all.

I can't believe it, but I am entering 3rd trimester with bubs #2. Liam is 14 months old and a real charmer. He just started saying uh-oh and says it at the funniest times. He also mocks DH and I sometimes when we're having an adult conversation by saying "blah blah blah". We had a little scare with this bump, but it turned out okay in the end.

It's been a crazy year for us. Besides this wonderful time with Liam, most of the rest has been really hard. My dad passed away in March from prostrate cancer that came back and spread. I am so, so lucky I found a job close to my parents and got to spend the last 2 years with him. And being here for my mom has been good, challenging at times, but good. I also lost my mentor- he died of pancreatic cancer last month at the age of 57. Screw cancer.

I guess it's the holidays that make me sentimental, but I miss you ladies and I am thinking of you often. I hope to hear an update or two.

Hi ladies,

I can't believe how long it has been. LO will be three in January. I think of you all often, but I haven't had much time to check in. I miss you ladies!

Xan, I am sorry about your father. I am glad you got to spend time with him, and congrats on your pregnancy. How is your little boy?

Congrats to Dragonfly as well :-)

We are one and done, no plans for another LO.

I hope Leetie and TTC are well too...

Happy holidays, ladies :-)

Hey Ladies!!

Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. Life has really just been so busy. But I think about you all the time.

I’ve been doing well though. Keeping busy with the Nephews. Me and DH are actually in the process of adopting through foster care. We’re going to do ages newborn through 6 for now. We’re hoping to be matched with a child. We could do emergency foster care and be able to adopt that way but you have more of a chance of the child being returned to the family that way. It’s scary but exciting. We’ve done all our classes and paperwork. The next step should be home inspection.

I will try to update when I can. Thank you all for your support and encouragement throughout the years. I pray you all are happy!

Oh, Leetie, you are going to be such a great mom! I'm sure when they meet you it will be obvious that you will give a child a warm, happy home to grow up in.

I'm glad that you are enjoying time with your nephews too. We went to France this summer to spend time with my in laws and my nephew and niece. It's so cool to see them growing into their own. As sweet as babies are, it is more rewarding for me to see Liam starting to communicate and express himself. He's a goofy, affectionate little boy with a very stubborn streak.

It's exactly one month until baby boy #2 will come. I'm not sure how we're going to do this (I only have 2 weeks off work) but it will happen!
