Hi ladies,

Just checking in to say hi. I am still around, however is now in the "trying to conceive" forum So far no luck.

Aidan just turned 3 in april. He weighs about 28 pds (last weighed in april) He is growing taller consistantly though. He's just a skinny kid, but growing taller....i'm not complaining He is at the "independent" stage right now. Always wanting to do things himself, or else he puts up a fit! I am proud and sometimes annoyed at the same time...annoyed when I am in a hurry...lol. He is half way potty trained. Will only pee in toilet, not poo in toilet. I don't know what else to do to get him to want to poo in there. He goes to the toilet himself every morning now...which i'm so proud of...haha.

Anyway, that's all that is up right now. Will keep you updated

Oh btw, I have a blood condition, which could've been the reason why i had pre-e. With baby #2, there is a plan this time...I am already taking low-dose aspirin, and will take lovenex injections myself once/day once i get pregnant....eek! I just have to remind myself it's to help me!

Glad to hear from you! I hope you're able to conceive as quickly as possible!

I can't believe Aidan is getting so big!!! Good luck with the potty--with Jim, it had to be a combination of threats and bribes to get him to poop in the potty. We backed off for a couple of months about pooping and made a deal with him that he'd start pooping on the potty after Christmas in exchange for getting good Christmas presents. When he pooped in a diaper the day after Christmas, we told him we were going to take away one of the toys Santa brought him unless he pooped in the potty from now on. That got his attention--then when he pooped in the potty, he got ridiculous amounts of praise and hugs and M&M's. I know you're not supposed to bribe them, but frankly it works!

Keep us posted about how it goes with TTC!
