CALLING ALL WOMEN OF STRENGTH!!!

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape…
But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything…
But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.
A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her…
But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them.
A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face…
But a woman of strength wears grace.
A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…
But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

My u/s is on the 26.... I am really excited now! Just knowing the numbers are climbing brings such comfort. I know there us no guarantee but at least I am alot calmer this tme around. You shouldn't be on here... Didn't you take your trigger shot? Go get "busy" and I am sending you tons of SSBD! I will keep you in my prayers! Good luck!!

Sbumblebeeo: We have our 9-omonth checkup on Fri, so we'll talk with our pediatrician about introducing more foods :) How fun! The bigger babies at daycare drink milk & eat finger foods, so you're probably right. Ava loves anything & Ricky does too for the most part, but his fav is sweet potatoes! :) Thanks for voting!!!

Guesito: Love your pics! Baby's room is beautiful :) Thanks for voting for my lil ones! :)

Krichar: Thank you! :) How are you feeling? Have you told family yet? Not too long before your 1st u/s!!!

Bfromthed: I'm so sorry! I know it's more than frustrating ;( but luvkayln is right. We did a trigger shot before egg retrieval because timing is so important. Your 18 & 19 follies are awesome & a good sized one on each side is great too. You're right, they'll grow every day til you O, so bd, bd, bd & try to stay relaxed ;) I'll keep you in my thoughts!!!

Bfromthed- Don't panic! You WILL still ovulate, the hcg trigger shot just ensures that you ovulate at a certain time! (It's mostly used to time the iui right). Just bd every day
until you see your temp spike and no that ovulation has taken place! :)

Will catch up later, Addy's trying to type with me right now! lol! Will check in/update later!!

I voted for them and saved the ling in my favorites so i can vote daily!!

bfromthed- Good luck this cycle!! Remember when you take the trigger shot it matures the eggs as well. The lining sound promising too!!! sending SSBD!!!!!

went to re's office today and have 2 follies 1 on my left (no tube) is a 18 on the right I have a 19 (tube there) e2 is 81 and lh is 2.8 not sure what all those numbers mean even though I have been going through this for 10 years now also my lining is up from 4.7 after d and c to 11 so I will be triggering tomorrow and covering our bases every other day as much as possible if you ask me...so here we go!

PS I thought the follies were small but I was told they continue to grow 1-2 mm per day and at 20 they are considered mature so about time I actually ovulate they could be between 20 and 23...i will have my progesterone drawn on the 21st
Please pray for us that this works and that this one sticks for 40 weeks!

Cheerios are good!! Helps them with their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Have you tried those yet? With my 10 year old he started on jar food but they didn't have all the "graduates" food they have now. I just started feeding him whatever we were eating. I know it was before 1. I remember he was about 9 months old stripped down to his diaper in his highchair covered head to toe in spaghetti because he refused to let me feed him, ge had to do it himself!!

Guesito- the pics are awsome!! Love the nursery theme... And your bump is sooooo cute!!

mommyin10-  She loved the spaghetti!  It's the gerber stage 3.  It says for Crawlers so I am sure you could give it a try if you wanted.  She's been getting a lot of stuff.  Last night I let her taste some Berry Smoothie, she loved that too.  I wondered about the cold but she didn't care.  The only thing she doesn't like is homemade bananas but I don't think they were rip enough for her.  By a year old they should be on their own finger foods right?  No more baby food?

Krichar: I can't wait til your u/s! What a wonderful surprise for your mil this Thanksgiving :)

Luvkayln: Hey there! Sounds like you stocked up & are ready to get in the game! As you know, I'll be cheering for you, for sure ;-) Ava is so ready to crawl! Boy, am I in trouble! :) She is very mobile, can get wherever she wants by "crawling", it's just not a technical crawl... yet!  Ricky has his 1st bottom tooth as of a few weeks ago & we just noticed the one next to it popping through! The doc felt two top front as well, so we'll expect them soon. They have pajama day at "school" tomorrow, so dh & I are gonna take them shopping for something cute later today ;) Wow! Isnt it amazing how fast time flies?!? I can't believe Addy will be a year old so soon! Mine will be 9 months next week... Crazy! What are your plans for her bday??

Keyan: I don't blame you for holding off on your hsg. Your body can only take so much at one time. I'm excited for your iui! Keep us posted :)

Sbumblebeeo: I saw your FB post! That's exciting she has her 1st tooth! How did she like the spaghetti? We haven't tried anything like that yet ;) We have our 9-month appt next Friday!

If anyone has a chance, please vote for Ricky & Ava's Halloween pic. I entered them in the cute kid contest. You can vote once per day per email address through Monday. I know it's just s popularity contest because some pics already have 100+ votes! We have 40 something. But it's fun anyway to see how many people vote :) If you do take the time to vote, thank you!!! It's appreciated :)

Congratulations!! great numbers!! happy and healthy pregnancy ;-)

Bfromthed: Hi. Surgery...well my plan is to try IUI for atleast 3 cycles...and then have surgery...but RE thinks we should only do one cycle....we will see...

I am around cd11,  after the biopsy I spotted for a few days until AF actually started....didn't call to set up the HSG apt, I felt sore and just wanted to give my body a rest...when AF shows again, will call to set the apt and then we go back to the RE with the test results to discuss the plan to follow.

Happy Thursday!

I dont' even know what to say.  I am so happy for you a tear just dripped!  That is wonderful news!!!!! I am soooo excited for your u\s!  That is the day after Thanksgiving for us!  I'll be at home waiting by the computer for pictures.  

So last night Shelby had spag. for the first time.  A little noodle slipped out and I pushed it back in her mouth with my finger and she BIT me with.... her TOOTH!  I feel it.  It's right there.  Very sharp.  I cried just a little.  I can't believe my baby girl has her first tooth.  I better break out the babybook!!!!

Krichar- Holy cow!!! Congrats girl!!! That is amazing! SO happy for you honey!! This is SO IT!!!! Yayyy!!! :) Can't wait till your u/s now! I just know there's more than 1 in there! ;)

Guesito- Congrats, so glad everything went well for your little one at the u/s! :) I bet you had a very eventful day shopping for her!! :)

Mommyin10- How's your little ones? Any new milestones? :) OMG, it's really hitting me hard! Addy's birthday is less than a month away!! Where did the time go??!!

AFM: CD 9 today! As you all know, my body has been thru a bunch this year, with having Addy, breastfeeding for 6 months therefore having no AF, then quitting breastfeeding and having one cycle and getting pregnant the same cycle, then miscarrying a month later... My poor body is trying to get back to normal, which I can imagine after all that could take a bit. My first cycle I ovulated on CD 30, and this last cycle I didn't ovulate until CD 41. I've been taking fertility blend, and am hoping that regulates my cycles. I bought the smiley face opk's for this month, and I bought 1 20 pack and 2 7 packs, just so I can start testing this Sunday (CD 12) and not run out in case I have a long cycle again, which I'm hoping not! I know it can take a while for the fertility blend to start working, but I'm hoping it starts working soon! :) Just ready to start officially trying! :)
