Hey Ladies I hope you are all doing well. I am settled in and have been taking a FB/JM Break. At one point I was considering leaving the board but now that I'm not spending as much time on FB, I realized it wasn't this that was taking up so much time Sooo. I'm back, and I missed yall! Denmark is okay, but taking some serious adjusting to. On top of general adjustments, I've been dealing with hormones, financial issues (soon to be resolved), and being relatively isolated from all our family. I had a REALLY difficult time this past month and have been ALL OVER the place emotionally. I mean, I have NEVER been so moody or emotional in my entire life.... Turns out it was for a good reason as AF is finally back! She showed up this morning. Ironically, I feel so much more level-headed and at ease now. And crampy as ... well, yall have AFs as well, so you understand DH and I have a compromise that if we stay here, then we get to talk about TTC much sooner than originally expected because we will be in a much better situation financially and education-wise. He can go to school for free while we work on paying off my degree, so we can be debt free when he graduates. Plus, there's 9 months paid mat. leave here, which puts us in a much better place when we have another one. We're still not 100% sure though and our plan changes every couple of days So! What did I miss? Who's PG and who's still waiting for AF? I heard Miranda's having a boy! Congrats! And I stalk her and Jo on FB/JM anyway How is everyone else?
Oh! I guess I could update about Leila! She took her first steps a couple of weeks ago and is now taking a couple unassisted a few times a day. She cruises and stands on her own no problem, but was so afraid to walk for the longest time... So I'm happy she's interested now! She has changed so much the last few days and is so much more engaged in *everything*. Things are getting so fun with her now
Alissa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's great to hear from you!!!!!!!! Ahhh so AF made her return huh? I'm still waiting over here! Did you cut back on BF'ing or was it just time for her to return? I ask cuz i'm wondering when mine will return...i will wanna start TTC in a couple months
I'm glad to hear you are adjusting, i totally understand the difficulty about being away from family, i'm having the same issue. I hope you are able to pop in a little more often, we miss ya!
Aww I miss you ladies too!!!! Lauren, yep!! I thought I ovulated and for once I was FINALLY right hahahah. I thought I was ovulating every couple of months since Leila was born
<<--- Paranoid. I'm going to temp this time so I can really keep track on when I'm ovulating because we're using the same method of BC that gave us oopsie #1 That being said, it will be fun to actually TTC!!!
On a side note.... my MIL just asked if I was prego because I was wearing an empire waist dress! ... hahahahah last time she asked me that question a couple month later we ended up pg. we'll see how that goes this time!
Unrelated....Am I the only one not going to be TTC soon? LOL
More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually. - Dalai Lama
Sorry to hear you had a bit of a difficult time but glad to hear it's looking up!
AF is such a witch!
Exciting to read about everyone wanting to TTC! Hope it happens quickly for everyone that is wanting it to
Happy to hear from you... I was starting to wonder about you... So sorry the transition has been so rough on you but happy things are starting to get better for you. So sorry you AF returned but yay for ttc soon!!
On a side note.... we are going to start ttc as well.... after I get AF.. she has been inconsisitant for 6 months now (since she first showed up after 4 months pp)... once she comes next we will start!!

Glad all is going well - and yay for everyone who is TTC. My best friends are both pregnant - one with her second and one with twins. However, we are quite happy with one for now. Glad for all of you wanting another little one though!
