    TB - I had an anterior placenta with Luke. It was just matter of fact for the most part. Nothing special became of it. I think that's a good call to wait on getting your dose of the vaccine until after your baby girl comes.

    Sunny - Oh that's exciting! I get the uncertainty though. There's so much of that floating around in 2021. It just can't be avoided. I too worry about secondary infertility (especially after my MMC last year, will that be a new trend for me? Urgh!) but I've prayed about it and decided that I won't pray and worry at the same time. That's just what's working for me to keep my sanity about it all.

    Hey Steph! COVID in Ontario, sigh. We're under another province wide lockdown - but it's all very silly. All the big box stores are still open, Starbucks is open, I just wish they would do a true lock down. Shut down EVERYTHING, leave gas stations, grocery stores and hospitals open, that's it! Numbers continue to rise. Daycares are open still too. I mean it's helpful for us cause DH and I are both working, so we need childcare but it's not helping the greater cause. 1 good thing is masks are mandatory pretty much EVERYWHERE. Well wishes for your upcoming appointment (hopefully you can get it rescheduled shortly after your quarantine period) and getting things lined up for your FET! Can't wait.

    AFM - Looks like April is going to be go time for TTC #2.

    Wow just finally catching up here!

    Hi Steph!! So good to hear from you. Sorry to hear your husband caught covid. Hope his symptoms are mild and he recovers quickly!
    Excited for you for your FET!

    Tb- I didn't have any issues with jealously, but I did find it really challenging that Leon was so rough around Emmett. I remember one day I put up the octagon playpen and sat in it with Emmett just to keep them separated because I was running low on patience. Coming up with special activities to keep Leon occupied while I was nursing Emmett was super helpful.

    Sunny- yes, I've been very lucky to be able to get both doses of the vaccine! What a relief that was!
    Please share your secret on how to get a 2 year old to wear a mask. No luck here yet, but I guess I haven't really tried too hard since we just don't go anywhere.

    Dream- yay for TTC in April, so exciting!

    I've been struggling with some anxiety... I think mostly normal considering the circumstances with the pandemic and being very isolated, feeling lonely, etc. I finally decided to reach out to a counselor, started working out again (at home) and things have improved some. Still struggling with essentially no social life but hanging in there!

    Thanks for chiming in about the anterior placenta. I have definitely noticed the difference in the amount of movement. I still feel her a lot but not the same way I felt K! But that’s ok :)

    We just celebrated her second birthday! So crazy that I have a TWO YEAR OLD!! What?!

    Amber- sounds like those two will be wrestling partners in the future! That probably was frustrating!! Kaydence is really sweet with the newborn at the babysitters so hopefully I won’t have to worry too much about that (who knows!)
    I’m really sorry you are having anxiety. I’m definitely missing normal life. In some ways it is all normal (we have been face to face at school all year) but weekends or anything else including grocery shopping is just is weird. I miss my friends!

    Another weird thing is I’m having some Weird body image issues this go around. I am terrified of being bigger than last pregnancy and am constantly comparing my bump to the first time and at work I’ve even tried hiding it! Last time I flaunted it the whole time! The weird thing is My logical brain knows that’s dumb lol and not healthy and also I’m definitely the same size (if not a little smaller) than last time so it’s already an illogical fear.. but I’ve been struggling to get out of my brain about it. It was just kind of a surprising thing. It may also have to do with the fact that I haven’t been working out 5 days a week this time like I did the first time. Anyway...

    I can’t wait for you girls to all start TTC- I need to see tests!

    Tb- isn't it crazy to have a 2 year old! I often look at Leon and just about cry thinking about how BIG he is!! He will always be my baby, but he certainly doesn't look like it anymore!

    Sorry you are dealing with body image stuff. I really fixated on it the second time around. It's hard. I think what worked most for me was making a promise to myself to stay active, even if just walking some on days I wasn't feeling so good, and telling myself that I'm doing the best I can. Being pregnant with a 2 year old is exhausting! We all deserve to give ourselves lots of grace!

    I know! They are growing up so fast! Kaydence surprises me every day with what she knows and can do.

    So I passed glucose test but like last time I may be slightly anemic. Ordered some of the same iron supplements I took last pregnancy and I’ll take them at a separate time than my prenatal.

    what’s funny is I weigh just under a pound more this time than I did last time and my belly is measuring exactly the same.. so I’m giving myself more grace in the body image category. Idk what my problem has been lol also started seeing my chiropractor again.. except this time was out of necessity and not preventative. Out of no where I started getting horrible pelvic pains. Chiropractor says everything is ridiculously loose and I am likely over producing relaxin at this point. So that’s fun. I wear an SI belt during the day now.

    Other than that- all is well haha! Hope everyone else is doing well

    I have just over a week left in this cycle. Then we're pulling the goalie (aka I'm coming off the pill). I'm calling this upcoming cycle my cleansing cycle. Really not 'trying' to conceive but instead just ridding my body of the extra hormones and having a natural cycle before we really get going in April. DH told me over the weekend he's ready to start now! I'm happy to hear how excited he is.

    I had a moment with Luke last week too. Dad usually does bedtime but he was out late so I did it. I was overcome with emotions putting him down, he's SO BIG in my arms. Soon he's gonna be talking to me about girlfriends and moving out. lol
