Oh.. and the kiddos are doing well. Alice seems to be developing a sleep pattern which is helping. I'm hoping she will continue to sleep well at night as i go back to work.

Christian is still doing well with her and likes to sing to her when she is whiney. It's so precious! He is suppose to get his tonsils out on the 23rd. I'm super nervous about it. His cousin has the same procedure in December and struggled with recovery.

Krissie: That was fast! I'm glad you see the positives with the vasectomy. Love your two munchkins to the max! They sound priceless.

When do you head back to work?

I just had my tonsillectomy at the end of January. Even though my experience was rough, I had other factors your son doesn't have (age, pregnancy, strep throat). I had zero pain until my allergic reaction to the pain medication, then I made the decision of no more pain meds. I'm sure if you keep up on the meds as directed by the doctor, and give him cold (kids-ice cream, cold pudding, fudgsicles?) He'll be great in no time. I'm eager to hear how it goes.

AFM: We have our ob/gyn appointment tomorrow. My partner still hasn't seen baby so I hope tomorrow is his day. Hopefully I'll be able to get a photo to show you gals.

My s/o hates my dog. He has since I moved in last year. I've made the decision to find my baby a new home for both their sakes. Her new family is picking her up tomorrow. Heartbroken.

Urs- I'm sorry about your dog. I hope she has a good happy home. I hope you got to see baby!

I go back to work Monday for half days that week. Then I have spring break off and then back full time on April 2nd. I have 8 weeks then off for summer break. So just trying to stay positive I can make it that long and hopefully by August we are all in a better routine.

Thanks fern, how are you doing?

Fern: Their only guess for quads was that my body hasn't ovulated in years so it did a large ovulation. I don't know how accurate this thought is though...

Krissie: Thank you. She instantly loved the man. If she has issues with someone they're usually male so that was great to see her connect so quickly. It's all done now, I know I made the right choice.

It's unfortunate you aren't able to take right to August off. I hope things go smoothly for you as you make the transition back.

AFM: Had a poor experience at our ob/gyn yesterday. We saw her resident first who then lied to her about the ultrasound. I felt betrayed and unwelcome. We didn't get a photo because our ob/gyn rushed our appointment. She wanted another couple in the room but we were already in the room. Sigh, whatever. Not every appointment can be good I suppose. I'll be seeing her every 2 weeks until birth because of history and medical issues.

Fern how are you doing?

Krissie- Iím sorry you have to go back so soon. Glad you at least can just to 1/2 days for a little bit. Fingers crossed you guys can find a good routine quickly.

Urs- Iím sorry you donít like your Obgyn any chance you can change drs? What do you mean lied about your ultrasound? They should have pictures of that on file. At least they are monitoring you closer due to your history.

Arm - Sorry I decided to take the month off from ttc and actually went on vacation for 2 weeks with my dd. I didnít realize how much I needed the ocean and sunshine lol. (Until I got horribly sunburned the first day hahaha). Fertility doc appointment was today. I felt a little disappointed compared to our last time starting with them. We do have a plan though in place. My dh is going for his SA Thursday morning. Have you ever heard of them only wanting guys to wait 1-2 days before testing? If his count is normal clearly it wonít be lol we will do med cycle. If itís 5-15 mil start on clomid and try an iui in a few months. If itís below 5 still do the clomid. See how much improvement we get but if not enough then jump right to ivf. I think itís a reasonable plan just makes me a bit nervous to have it a written out for us again.

Swimmy, I'm sorry the plan is nerve wracking, but so good you guys got in and have a plan now, all laid out. Also sounds like the vacation was just what you needed! I hope along with the nerves you also feel excited about these next steps!

We are starting to try again in June. Aaaaack. I'm so excited and really hope it goes well for us. If I had a magic wand and could choose when we actually conceive, I would hope for it to happen in August/September so we could deliver in May/June and our little one would be past the 2 yr mark before new baby was born. But of course I know it is highly unlikely to work out exactly as I want it to, lol.

Doc - Hahahaha I said if we do IVF I want to do aug/sept for that exact reason lol. A may/June baby would be sooo nice! I would like to avoid being pregnant the summer again. But beggars canít be choosers right? My day 3 labs all came back normal. Still waiting on his SA results, fingers crossed we can get them Monday.

Swimmy, exactly! My first was a May baby and it was perfect pregnancy wise... but having mat leave in the dog days of summer was brutal, it gets up to around 100 degrees here so taking a newborn out in that wasn't realistic. I guess there are pros and cons to everything. I mostly just want my son to be 2 first! Lol. Two under two just sounds too stressful! (Even though I know there's not anything particularly magical about the age two... but it just feels like it would be better!)

I am anxiously awaiting your husband's SA results! Fingers crossed! (Just realized this is the only place where saying I'm looking forward to someone's semen analysis is totally normal, haha!)

IRYM, how are you doing? We haven't heard from you in a bit?!

Hmm.. I thought I replied awhile back. Must not have pushed send.

Urs- I am glad your dog was able to connect with him, it sounds like a positive transition for her. How are you feeling? Happy 2nd trimestes!! I hope your experiences at your ob improve.

Swimmy- I hope you get the SA soon and that it is looking good for ttc. I think when my DH did his he was told to abstain for 3 days, but that was over 5 years ago so it might have been 2-3 days?

I wanted desperately to avoid a Dec/Jan baby but she was still born in January. Granted when she was conceived we weren't exactly trying. I guess it all worked out how it was suppose to anyways.

IRYM- Full term!! I hope everything has been going well and that you have your little girl in your arms soon.
