[B]Hi Ladies!! I have missed you and hope you had a great 4th of July!!![/B]
[B]Melissa:[/B] Wahoo!!! That is amazing news… OMG, that is better than amazing!! I would take the loan and pay back what ever, because like us (we are strapped and happy to be done) you will pay it back eventually! So, I would go for it and be thankful that it was not a bank that I had to pay interest too. It is so fantastic, and I will hope and pray it comes through for you!!! You deserve it!!
[B]Natasha:[/B] I have only used xanax for surgeries and it is yucky. I feel loopy. Two of my family use Wellbutrin and the other it the one McKenna uses. The are light and not massively effected by alcohol. My DH and daughter find it helps alot to get over stress and the blues. My DH’s is seasonal, but my DD’s is stress related. I would talk to someone about getting a more a different drug. I am glad to hear the nanny is working out. I can’t wait to hear how she does when you Mom is gone. I know you will miss her and enjoy your freedom…
[B]Sheri:[/B] Girl, you look good!! I swear I am going to be huge (like killer whale size!). You look fantastic and now you are almost ready. I can’t believe how close you are to finished. Next Month!!! How are you feeling. I think I should get my room ready sometime in August. After school starts, but before we get crazy busy. I have never set one up that early, but 2 months is not horrible. I will still have to buy clothes and all the other necessities (I have none!) I have seen the name Elin a few times, and it just stuck. I am struggling with a middle name… I guess I may have to look up some names. Have you decided on your sons name? Did you tell and I completely forget?? Are you using family names? I love picking, but my DH will throw out many of them. He wanted Renee last night and I threw it out. So, I guess we both do it!! Decisions… Decisions!!
[B]Kristin:[/B] I bet you placenta is moving as we speak!! You will have that beautiful natural birth… I bet you will be excited for your 32 week u/s. You will be fine, most move. So, have you started buying fun stuff?? I have bought nothing, but today I am buying a crib!! Names are so difficult. We can not decide on a middle name. I love middle names to be after family members. I love yours… Little M has Danielle after my DH’s middle name Daniel. Big M’s is my middle name, and Z’s is my sisters first name. I think first names are harder!! They are a labor of love… and we have until the last minute!! I think we are set, but DH could throw out something and it could change. I think it is fun trying to find one!
[B]Rosie:[/B] I am glad your uterus is happy and ready for baby!!! I can’t believe you will be starting soon!! Are you mentally ready for the excitement? You and your uterus can do this… You will make it to the end!!! I can’t wait to hear how everything goes!!! Your DD rocked at school… you are so lucky!! Once mine started high school, she is just average. She loves to have fun (not sure where she gets that from!!).
[B]LilY[/B]: You are a traveling woman!! I am glad you enjoying seeing the “boys”. Boy bands were such a fun thing… I bet they looked great grown up!!! Hahahahaha!!! I bet you will be ready to start a great cycle after your next trip. I have stopped bleeding and I feel really good. I can’t wait to hear about how your lining does… I bet it will be great since you will be using stims!!
[B]Karen:[/B] Nate did great at his baptisim and he is eating everything!!! I love it!!! I love my babies to fluffy and happy!! I bet your DH has enjoyed keeping the baby. I would be so jealous if my DH got to keep the baby (hahahaha!! It’s true, but one day would be nice!!) I hope you 3 are enjoiying all the summer fun!! And, each of mine have had a bonk on the head. My first rolled off the couch… I died!! I promise, he will not remember and he will be just fine. It is just awful for us!!!
[B]Carol:[/B] Girl, you did wicked good in the heat in Florida!! I normally go in the fall, during fall break. It is cooler and less packed. I know your DD loved performing, mine does too!! So, do you feel like you are missing one more little one. I have that the first year I have a baby. If it last after the first year, then I know it is real!! I was fine for a long time after the first, but the others… it drove me nuts!! Now, I know there will not be another. I could not handle the stress or the failure. So, 4 is going to be the perfect number! I think you should try the fun way, until you are ready to do IVF again. If mine was not out of pocket… I would have tried sooner!!
[B]Jazz/Sam[/B]: I hope you both get a new job!! You need something you love, when you have to go daily!! I am so excited that your little ones are all personality!! It is fun when they become all smiles, giggles and frowns (I call it pookie-pookie face). When they start to cry, it is cute. I know that is horrible, but I just love everything about babies.
[B]Kate:[/B] I hope you are resting and happy!!! Miss you and hope you are great!!!
[B]McKenna:[/B] Is your arm getting better? I am sure you are healing and have a really funny tan line!!!
[B]Jen:[/B] I loved the article, it made me cry. It was so touching that she found her mom. Did you have the discussion with your boss. Holy crap, it going to get busier and he going to expect more. You are working on vacation!! You are dedicated!!! My DH works to much and they know he will so they take advantage of him. He was in yesterday for 6 hours. It is crazy, but he feels like he must. So, I try to be supportive.
[SIZE=3][B]AFM:[/B][/SIZE] Did I miss somebody… Hmmmm!!! I have been doing great. We had a great fouth, filled with food and fun. My DH is starting to say, “Don’t we need to buy something?” Hahahahaha!! I have nothing!! I have not bought one thing. So, today I am buying our crib and bedding. I will need to look at crib mattresses sometime, but I am picky. I hate vinyl (they make a crunchy noise when they roll over), so I have to go feel every one. I figured I will get the crib, then work on the clothes & blankets in the last two months (Sept & Oct). I am having no showers, so I will pick up bouncy seats and bottles in those last three months. I only have 16 weeks left… I am so excited!!! It is enough time to get stuff done, but not rush. I am shooting for room, then bottles and accessories, then clothes. I have my 20 week appointment today. I feel good and can wait to starting ordering the crib and bedding. I went with a convertible crib and it is so pretty. I hope everyone had a happy 4th!!!
