How's everyone?

AFM, im cd2 again!!! First AF lasted from Dec. 19-Dec. 31st Now I got ANOTHER AF starting Jan. 3rd Its really driving me crazy. This is the proper AF because I am having loads of clots, bleeding heavy, painful cramping etc. I thought by now I would be properly adjusted to the BCPs but I guess not. On Sunday I start month 3 pack and Im hoping that things get better. So far dh stay has been pretty good. We celebrated XMas, my 23rd birthday, my mom's birthday, new year's eve and new year's together. Also had an amazing time at our overnight getaway. There has been majority times of stress because DH and his mom have been arguing back and forth BUT the godo thing is..she isnt moving in until DH leaves so we can have our alone time together. Even though these AFs have been a pain in my behind...DH and I still enjoyed dtd like its no tomorrow and not one AF is going to stop us Right now, DH is out with the guys on his little guys night out and Im just at home. He leaves to go back Sunday and when he goes back he should be able to pick his job and wait for his new contract and orders. I had my hematologist appt and found out that my platelets level is back to normal range (my level is 411 and the max is 450 ) and im borderline iron deficient. My iron level suppose to be at 100% and im at 25% so he told me to take iron supplement pills every day and then when I come back in march, he will check to see where my levels at to determine whether i should continue taking them every day or only when I have my AF so another appt set in March well actually to scheduled in March for the hematologist. I have my follow up with my primary care doctor next month on the 18th and Then my ob/gyn appt in March plus the 2 hematologist appts as well. So busy busy me. I also have the hemoglobin c trait so dh has to get tested to see if he has it because if he does then our baby will have a 25% chance of being anemic. So will get that done once we are properly together. 3 more months worth of birth control to take Also, im going back to school to get my nursing degree. So because I want to become a midwife....im going to go to college and become a RN and then work my way up. Seeing that Im going to be pretty busy with my nursing degree. DH and I decided that we will ttc once i get my nursing degree. So that's 1 1/2-2 years. Even though, subconsciously, I still want to ttc once the birth control is over but we shall see whats in store for us. Well thats all for now.

Good to hear from you again Patrice Wow sounds like lots going on with you!! Aww I hope your MIL isn't gonna cause too much stress
Wow a nurse good for you!! And who knows a baby might come along in the midst of everything, no way of knowing


AFM I've still got AF, it showed up on the 2nd booo!! My cycle still isn't regulated but thats probably due to I'm still nursing.
Lots going on, today gonna go shopping for a birthday present for a 3 yr old, friends kid. And also hopefully gonna find a harness strap for my highchair that my dad had brought down.

how old are all the babies now?

happy new year to everyone by the way!!
Im having the same problem about him sleeping in our bed. It started out with occasional naps now he's hooked. He will cry if I put him the bassinet and would sleep immediately once placed on our bed. We live in an apartment so I don't want him screaming in the middle night so I give him. It's been a long time since my husband and I got the bed to ourselves.

Ashley-I believe that a child will come. It always comes when you are busy with other things And I received AF a day after you

AFM, im on cd4 today and so far this AF has been on the light side but im just waiting it out to see whats going on. Cant believe 3 months have came and gone already. Today I started month 3 of the bcps. So time is flying by. Also today was the day DH had to leave to go back to the base He is on his way back now so he should be there in the afternoon. Before DH left, he sat his mom down and gave her rules for the house. But at the end of it all..she is going to do what she wants. Thats pretty much what she told him and we talked about it and he was like, dont let her boss you around and just like he told her..im the boss of the house now so if she has anything to say or do she has to come to me first. So atleast DH and I got an understanding. I cant wait until I can be back with him again. So now its back to taking care of the household.

Patrice--thats good news and i am going for nursing too i have some classes done already and i start full time agin Jan 22nd.

Ashley- She is such a little cutie!!!

AFM- AF is due tomorrow...and i am kind of sad that she is not here yet! the last few months my AF has been coming days early.....i havent been stressed or anything so i hope nothing is keeping her away (unless im pregnant which i highly doubt) but we shall see if she makes an appearance tomorrow. other then that not much going.

thats what a lot of people has been telling us. I know a couple who has 2 kids that still sleep with them and they are 8 and 10. My baby is super clingy and wants to be held all the time he's laying on my chest right now while im typing this

To ease my LO into sleeping in her bed, we would place her down as soon as she hit a deep sleep. And then gradually reduced the time before putting her to bed, now I can put her to bed while shes awake and she'll fall asleep if shes tired. Though it wasn't until my LO was 2 months before she started sleeping in her bed.

AFM I'm doing alot of slow cooker meals lately as this seems easier as my LO wants my attention in the afternoon early evening so I can't cook.

AFM, well i guess this is how my AFs really suppose to be. It has been light enough to jsut have on one panty liner a day but of course i always change them. But no more cramps and I always think its on its way out because its that light. Hoping now it is on track and it wont come until the 4th week of the bcps. Because even though I had an extended AF and then a REAL AF, the real AF came on the 4th week while the extended AF came during the 2nd week. Also, i read that spotting and bleeding between AFs is normal with the pills but I hope this 2 AFs in a row thing doesnt happen again. Well, my friend needs a place to stay so I told her she can move in here until she gets on her feet. Atleast now it will help me deal with my MIL and she wont really be on my case alot because a "stranger" to her, will be in the house as well so she would most likely be on her best behavior. So I guess everything works out. I just got to talk to dh about it first and my friend is even willing to pay rent so that would REALLY help us out too because we are already saving alot of money so now if she does pay rent...over $200 more will be in our pockets and that will be able to go to the credit card debt which will help us pay them off faster So I'll talk to him and see what he says. Anywho, all is well today. I went out with my friend last night which was well needed and we are going out again this weekend to a reggae club which is awesome seeing as dh and I are both jamaican (dh is british/jamaican)...wish he could've been here with us. But thats all for now.
