    Those OPKs <3 <3 Fingers crossed in a few weeks this is exactly what your pregnancy tests will look like!

    Tb; sign me up for one of those babies like Olivia :D That's amazing! Are you looking forward to going back to work in a few weeks?

    AFM; 25.5 weeks. We caved and got a (used!) Snoo for baby #2. I remember thinking who'd ever pay for such a thing back when I was pregnant with #1 lol. But it feels different this time around. I just want to make sure we're doing everything we can possibly do to make this transition easier on us all soooo if that involves spending hundreds of dollars on a bassinet, well so be it :D Upside: since we "only" paid $650 instead of $1500, there's a good chance we'll be able to resell it for about that much in a few months when we're done with it.

    Sunny- it’s not always like that. We get lots of 30-45 minute naps. And she fights 97% of them which is hard when Kaydence is there too! But she has always been a great night sleeper so I’m hoping as we hit 3 and 4 months she will start connecting those cycles better for day time sleep!
    I’m actually ready to go back to work. I wasn’t with Kaydence being a FTM, but now with a toddler and an infant, I’m ready for a little bit of something else lol I love them dearly but, you know…

    I’m actually shocked that the queen of being frugal bought a snoo! I would love to have that- ans you’re probably right about reselling. Maybe I should have bought one used and sold it to you haha

    Tb; I know!! Can't believe it myself either lol.

    I remember you said you had some unexpected body image issues during your pregnancy, how are things now? I'm dealing with the same and it came out of the blue for me. I loved my pregnant body with #1 but now I just see a penguin/whale mix when I look in the mirror. I know the added weight is temporary and is something we should appreciate (our bodies are doing some amazing things during pregnancy!), but somehow it's just not coming through lol.

    That was exactly how i felt! I loved my pregnant body with K. Then I felt enormous and not cute with O.

    honestly I bounced back WAY faster this time.. which makes zero sense because I was still lifting and working out the entire time the first time. My entire 4th trimester has been better this time. I only bled for about 3.5 weeks, no tears. Honestly didn’t even feel like I pushed out a baby 10 minutes after having her. My mood swings were rare.. I felt more like I knew what I was doing. I feel good about how I look now and I wish I wasn’t so hard on myself. I took very few photos this pregnancy:(

    CD22 & 5DPO
    I'm probably going to start testing on Monday at 8DPO, which is dangerous, cause its early but that's the best I can do. lol

    That gives me some hope Tb! Sorry you didn't take many pregnancy pics though :( So far I haven't either.

    Dream, you have our full permission to start testing that early :D Keeping everything crossed and can't wait to stare at some faint lines pretty soon!!

    CD27 & 10DPO - BFN with FMU

    This is the part where I start to doubt I'll ever get pregnant again. I feel so silly for feeling like we would actually have better luck TTC#2. With 2 surprise BFP (and MCs) since my first I figured when we were actually trying it wouldn't be that difficult. Sigh, whatevs.

    I feel like it's gonna be a no on the May baby for us. Hopefully better luck for a June baby.

    Hang in there Dream! Every cycle is a brand new chance and those past experiences aren't indicative of what will happen in the future (I know it sounds like one of those lame banking commercials).

    Every cycle feels like one too many, but in reality you haven't had that many cycles of trying yet. I know it'll happen soon!! :hugs:

    Nope this is really only cycle 2. It's not cause for panic. All my sane and rational thoughts go out the window when I'm staring at stark white negatives though. lol

    CD28 & 11DPO - BFN

    My Birthday is Sunday, AF will likely come right on time for that. Happy Birthday to me!

    Okay my pity party is over.

    :( So sorry

    But think of it this way; how awesome would it be to write in your birthday every time they ask you for your last menstrual period on those future OB visits? After all, CD1 is the start of the first week of pregnancy if you get your positive next month. So I have high hopes for your upcoming cycle dream.
