Who's TTC? Who is pregnant? How are all the little(and not so little) ones? Who is back to WTTC? I miss hearing the updates!

We're officially TTC! No more WTTC! Testing this cycle, and next cycle moving forward with MA! Keeping our fingers crossed that the 3 cycles we have budgeted for right now will not all be needed and that we can roll some of the money towards a bigger vehicle, lol!

How are all the little(and not so little) ones? Edward is good, we got VERY behind in homeschooling with Mason's birth and then the foreclosure on the townhome we were renting and then a sudden move due to the foreclosure. Preston is not potty training as well as I'd like so I still have two in diapers. Not a big deal for me though. He talking more and in very short sentences. Mason is almost 5 months already and is trying to sit up on his own. He is WAY more of a Mama's boy than the older two were. Last night, I ran to the store when Chris got home and I left the boys with him and when I came back, Mason was passed out on Chris' shoulder until I spoke, he woke right up and reached for me!
Who is back to WTTC? Me, until Mason is about 2-3 years old.

Jen, so excited that you're TTC!!!! I'll be watching for your BFP!!!!

I'm currently 12 dpo and hoping AF doesn't show up!! I'm not that hopeful. I'm having my typical AF symptoms. Cramping, a little moody, sore nips when Oliver nurses. My last LP was 13 days long so I'm guessing AF will come on Thursday. If not I'll test of Friday with my very last IC. I stopped charting after ovulation was confirmed because I didn't want to obsess this time around.

Oliver is doing well. He talks non-stop. He likes to boss me around and be a control freak. Haha.. He still is waking me up at all hours of the night. I don't think I'll ever sleep restfully again.

How are all the little(and not so little) ones? Amara is doing well. She continues to amaze me with her speaking and how well she understands everything. She's now fully day-trained (potty) but I have no idea when I will start on night training. She's just growing up too quickly.

I just posted an update so I won't get into too much detail. Although I forgot to mention I'm in the same boat as some of you ladies -- Charlotte is still waking me up at least a couple of times a night! *sigh* I miss sleep.

I mentioned in my update we will start casually ttc next month. I don't want to obsess this time (am I just echoing Resi here??? ). I'm not even going to chart. I don't know how I would with Charlotte waking me up at night anyway. I might try to chart once just to make sure everything fell back into place after I had Charlotte.

I'm so happy for you Jen!

We are still TTC... I just feel like it's been forever. I haven't been temping for a while because i needed a break. although this month I am taking more OPKs, so hopefully O can be detected that way, although DTD sometimes feels like work now. lol it all just sucks. At this point, I'd even take a Dec/Jan baby like i always said i didn't want...I just want to wait to be over!

Im hanging around between very casually TTC and being completely done. We've started to ease into the mindset of being childless. Im HAPPY for the first time in probably two years, and I think it is all due to the fact that I am not really focusing on TTC and instead im focusing on myself, my health, and my marriage. We will be taking at least 6 months in this stage and after that if we both want to do IVF then we will, but if I still have my reservations about it (like I do now, im SO scared of IVF) then we wont do it. Maybe 5 or so years down the road we would look into adoption.

Honestly, I think us taking a few years away from seriously TTC was one of the best things we could do. We never prevented, but walking away from the temping and hormones and everything gave us time to focus on a different life, and to decide what we really wanted to do.

We are TTC, I am on my first medicated cycle It has taken us just shy of two years to get to this point. I was taking clomid from cd2-6. I will start doing OPK's from around CD12. I am determined to give us the best chance I can with this cycle. I want a Christmas baby! Iam also temping too My aim is to try and DTD at least every few days this cycle. I just hope DH is co-operative haha.

Mia is 3 and a half. Seriously I dont know how that happend. She goes to pre-school 3 days a week and she LOVES it! She is so clever and I am so proud. We had an appointment with the health visitor for her 3yr check last week and 2% of children in the UK are the same height as her. She is very small and dainty for her age. What she lacks in height she makes up for in vocals! We was told she is very intelegent (trying to work out who she gets that from!) and I wouldnt have her any other way

We're planning on TTC again as early as August, but possibly as late as November because we're toying with the idea of taking a family vacation to Disney World in November and I DO NOT want to be pregnant while on vacation! We hardly ever go on vacation, so there's just no way I'm going to spend all that money so that I can throw up in a different state! haha.

Xander is doing great! He says more and more words every day and is extremely active. He'll walk and walk and walk until he can literally walk no more if I let him loose outside. haha. Every day is an adventure. He loves to help me garden, which makes me happy since I love to garden. He'll just wander around and play with his plastic garden tools and explore while I do my thing. Luckily he's not the type of kid that puts things in his mouth, so I can trust him not to eat plants or dirt... He's just a little ball of energy, which leaves me wiped out at the end of each day. heh. He's also very demanding, wanting up, down, in, out, etc. I don't let him lead all day, but I try to let him lead sometimes (choose where we go, what we do, etc.) so that he can build those skills. I don't, however, want to spoil him and let him do whatever the crap he wants all day, so I still set boundaries. Sorry, rambling. haha. Anyway, we go to playgroup once a week so he is getting interaction with other kiddos. Not nearly was much as he probably should, but oh well. He still eats like a bird most of the time, but he's still growing and happy and active, so I guess it's just how he is. How he's always been. He was 23 lbs at 15 months and I'd guess he's easily 24-25 now. He's definitely gained and he's definitely gotten longer because all his pants suddenly got super short. hahaha.

I suppose that's it for now. I know I need to update more often, I just don't usually get on the computer for more than a few minutes at the time and it doesn't leave a ton of time for typing things out.

Still preggo with #1 here! I just turned 18 weeks. We switched to a midwife who is awesome and are planning on a natural birth at the birthing center!

We have purchased a few things, but still have no clothes, no crib, and no bassinet.

It's hard for me to say but there's been tons of other stuff on my mind other than baby stuff. Like taxes, more taxes, gardening, planning a spring garage sale, etc. All of which have to get done before I can "afford" to think about making room for the baby!

We are still on team green! So we'll probably end up buying the bulk of baby's clothes after the birth. There is so much available used or on craigslist but it is all gender-specific.

As far as me personally, I still haven't gained all that much weight! Maybe 6 pounds total? Although I did buy 3 maternity shirts at goodwill last week. Two are still too big, but the 3rd is perfect and super stretchy, which I love. I still fit into my regular pants with the hairband around the button.

Pics!

We are waiting to TTC. I'd like to start trying next summer but convincing Guy is not going well. We are also looking into adoption.

Harper is 8 months old. She is crawling and cruising everywhere. She's a pretty easy baby most of the time. She says mama, boob, no, up and rawr. She is a champ at drinking out of her sippy cup and does high fives and has just started clapping. She can tell you where the eyes, nose and mouth are on her toys as well.

Not TTC, not preggo!

Julien is three weeks old! Time is going so fast. I gotta say the first 2.5 weeks have been incredibly difficult. Breastfeeding was not going well (very long story) and baby was always crying. Always. And he was almost never sleeping and I was miserable because I felt my baby was unhappy and that I was a bad mom for not being able to comfort him. He was nursing constantly but never seemed satisfied and then when we weighed him we found out he wasn't gaining weight at all.

So, we ended up switching to formula. And my baby was immediately transformed. He wasn't hungry anymore and now he's happy. That being said, I'm still struggling with the fact that I'm not breastfeeding because I was determined to do it, but yeah. I gave up. I guess that despite all the books I had read, videos I had watched, consultants I had talked to, I never expected breastfeeding to be so difficult for me, both physically and mentally. I love seeing my son so happy and he's gaining weight, but I can't help but feel guilty.

We are WTTC till 2012. We want Teddy to be at least 2 when the new addition arrives. Trying to be casual this time around.

We've had a lot of drama surrounding Teddy lately. He has protein sensitivites to EVERYTHING. I tried everything to change my diet and he still had bloody stool. I just had to wean him off breast milk and onto hypoallergenic formula. It's been a rough transition for everyone involved. For me its more the loss of a dream... and him the loss of his everything.
He is doing great on formula though. He's not colicky anymore and i finally am getting sleep and feeling like a regular mom. Hoping not to go through this with the next one!

Preggo here. I am doing okay but I think pregnancy just started catching up with me. My back hurts so much today I think I did something yesterday while out walking/playing with Matthew.

As for Matthew, he is doing well. He is back on Prevacid b/c he had a reflux flareup after he got a virus and was puking almost every night. He is finally happier, but his sleeping has gone horrible again and still is. He is definitely strong willed and pushing the limits on things these days, getting ready for the terrible 2s! Especially when it comes to not wanting to take a nap or go to bed. He talks a lot, mostly one word at a time, but a few short sentences now and then. He has recently learned all his colors.
