    Alexis turned 4 months a week ago!

    She's currently suffering from a chest cold and having to do breathing treatments to help open her lungs.

    James will be 3 in about two weeks!!!

    Other then that, just adjusting to being a parent of two and working full time, battling a lot of guilt over not being with my babies all the time but feeling like I don't want to be home either. It's been a bit of a struggle trying to control my temper when James acts out...he still sleeps like complete crap and I'm exhausted.

    How is everyone else?

    So good to hear from you dream

    Good to hear from you Miranda. I know the feeling of guilt and it hits me every time I go back to work. But I always convince myself that it's for everyone's sake. I mean I would love to work part time if we can afford it.
    Alexis is 4 months already? Wow. Shitty about her cold though. Jamal is battling serious cough and I took him to the gp who said that his body needs to fight it but to bring him back if it gets worse. So that was on thursday and the cough is still here but kinda not as bad so I am torn as to weather to take him or wait it out.

    I am currently going through the crazy phase with ds1. He is absolutely cheeky and stubborn. I have been loosing my temper often with him but thank God that naughty step kinda still works lol.

    What do u do when james start playing up? As for the sleep? Does James sleep in the afternoon? Cos Jay was like that until I stopped him from sleeping in the afternoon. And then I find that he is exhausted come bed time.

    I think he naps at daycare....not really looking to stop that though, he's a whiney nightmare if he doesn't nap lol. It's like a double edge sword.

    I do time outs, warnings first...after the third warning, in time out.

    Yesterday I skipped the warnings and straight to time out because he punched Alexis in the stomach, little turd

    I am awful at updating here..I do update in my own journal and if you have instagram or fb I would love to add anyone Im not currently friends with.

    Alexis is already 6 months old! And by the feel of it her first tooth has barely surfaced and should any day now. I can feel it if I run a fingernail lightly across.

    James turned 3 in August! He is such a mischevious boy..always keeping me on my toes. Hes really going to be a handful when hes older.

    How is everyone?

    :flower: I am fine. I am still here. Lo is going to be 7 months next week and I am still in shock at how fast he is growing. He is crawling or at least moving forward lol but no tooth yet. My babies cut tooth late anyway so no bother.
    How is everyone else? Hope all good?

    No teeth yet here either, and no crawling. She wants to, but the only direction she moves is backwards haha.

    I always forget how close in age our babies are!

    Hope everyone is well

    My dd was exactly like that. She started moving backwards as well. But this ds got the hang of crawling quickly at 6 months lol. I also forget how close in age our Lo's are :thumbup:

    Hello Miranda! Hello ladies!
    Happy New Year to you all. Hope you all are doing great.

    We had been to my native land recently. Had met fertility specialist there and did one more round of IUI with a slight different protocol. But result was BFN. Then I saw my OBGYN here in Houston and did ultrasound. Both the doctors here as well as in India found fibroids in my uterus. But they are saying it isn't going to interfere in anything and these are apparently small. While the doctor in India thinks I have PCOS, here my OBGYN thinks I don't have PCOS. Plus we suspect endometriosis. So I am scheduled for Laparoscopy+Hysterscopy on 7th of next month. We will go from there. We have to be quick and aggressive in pursuing treatment within 6months of laparoscopy. Because if I have endo it might start to come back 6months after the surgery. So more IUI and IVF in line for us within next few months or we might straight go to IVF depending on the outcome of the surgery.

    Thanks Miranda! Alexis is such a cutie and I love her expressions. Her videos are pure treat to watch.

    AFM: This will be my first time going under general anesthesia. I am nervous for that. I am trying to clean, cook and do all other chores this week. So that it will be easier for DH to manage. I am expecting to be sore for at least a week.

    Hello Miranda. Hello ladies How have you been ?
    Happy Easter to you all in advance!!

    So I am fully recovered from the laparoscopy. It took nearly two weeks to get back to normal routine. But nearly a month to be completely ok and ready for TTC. AF arrived 10days late. But we tried to conceive this cycle. AF is due next week. Fingers crossed for a no show.

    Surgery update: Doctor found stage 3 endometriosis. She was able to clean some but left few sites untouched as it was risky to touch those sites as they were close to blood vessels. She also cleared many polyps, drained fluid filled cyst from my left ovary. Left ovary seems to be the bad one with endometrioma and cysts. it was attached to the pelvic wall and doctor unattached it. She also did hysteroscopy. My left tube showed fill and spill but right tube showed no fill and spill. But she thinks it is just due to spasm and nothing to worry about as my HSG was clear in 2014. But again I can't help thinking it might be blocked.

    So she wants us to starts seeing the specialist for IVF. We may try IUI if we wish but chances are it mayn't work. But we have decided to try two cycles naturally and then see specialist for consultation. I need a break from drugs and hospitals.

    I'm glad recovery is going well. I'm keeping everything crossed for you this cycle!!! Lots and lots of baby dust!!


    Alexis just turned a year old! She's being moved up to the toddler room at daycare, it's all a little bittersweet.

    James is doing well. He's got quite the personality. But he can be pretty cranky..I'm hoping huge growth spurt, cause honestly the whining the crying gets on my last nerve haha.

    As for me, I've been trying to lose weight...I haven't been able to shake the baby weight from James and looking back at pre pregnancy pictures and even James bump pictures it makes me a little sad at how I've let myself gain so much.

    I've gotten into the routine of working out. And slowly trying to fix my eating habits...my brother gets married next month and I'd really like to be a bit smaller by then!

    Hi ladies :flower:. So sorry I have been MIA :blush:. Hope everyone is k?
    Miranda happy belated birthday to Alexis (time sure does fly). I am the same on the weight loss journey, put on quite a bit of weight and I have been trying to shift it. We can be weight loss buddies lol. Are u registered at the gym or just going with the flow. I do 6000 steps and 30 minutes aerobics every morning with my Samsung app and then I am also on the 1200 calorie challenge on my fitness pal app. I have done it for 3 weeks now and have lost 5 pounds (2.3 kg) so that truly motivates me. I need to loose 10kg in total (20 pounds). So I am here for motivation if u need me.

    Pal :hugs: how are u sweetie? Glad u have gotten all the ops out of the way. Now let's try and catch that eggy. I wish u all the luck in the world and we are here if u want to talk. Where are u in ur cycle now?

    How is everyone else? Hope great :thumbup:

    Well my ds turned 1 today and I can't believe how time has flown lol

    Happy birthday little man!!!!


    I'm doing at home videos, insanity max 30. I took off this week as I wasnt feeling well and lo and behold I started my first postpartum period. I thought I had gotten lucky and the mirena I have stopped my periods but apparently that's not the case, the breastfeeding has stalled them like with James...and now that I no longer pump or nurse during the day and have cut back night nursing my prolactin levels have dropped enough to bring the old witch back!

    I downloaded a program from someone called Emily Skye I think I'll try next, including her eating program. My body should be able to let go of weight now that I'm not breastfeeding as much (I'm one of those lucky ones who hold onto weight while breastfeeding)

    We've been good here, surviving :haha:

    Alexis will be two next month! James turned 4 in August. They both keep me on my toes and test my patience daily but I love who they're growing into and becoming.


    How are you?
