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.

Richard & Ava see their pediatrician today. We're always anxious to see how  much they've gained :) Richard's supposed to be taken off his formula & put on something else. The one they're on has extra calories for preemies. I'll post their update later today :)

kmcarino: Best wishes at your appt today!

sbumblebeeo: How are you spending your last day before Shelby's arrival?!?
I'll be thinking of you & awaiting your update! :-)

hello,
am on my CD3.
He put me on clomid this month and he gave me pills called progyluton, which is a combination of estrogen and progesterone. I am suppose to take it from day 5
My DH blood work results were negative, means there is no anti-bodies (Thanks to god). The doc gave him cough medicine; he said it will help to liquidate (the agglutination).

Take care,

I just wanted to update that my appt was ok other than that they had to stick me four times to get my blood.  I am meausuring right and the heart rate was normal at 144.  I gained another 7 pounds from my last visit which is unbelievable to me since my belly growth has definitely slowed down.  My next appt is in two weeks.  I also got a prescription to get an ultrasound for growth so I will schedule that for a few weeks from now.

Hooray for Shelby Rachel arriving today!

Hey girls! Sorry for the late post. I am CD7 today. I have been so sick since our bahama vacation. I got bronchitis somehow and am still fighting it to this day. going on 15 days now. Hope everyone is doing well!

Congrats to Ad_06 on your son! How exciting to finally know!

Hi girls! :) Sorry I haven't posted lately...! So much is going on I feel like. My mil is moving to Catalina Island on April 20th, so we're moving into her house! I'm excited b/c right now we rent and it's just a small 2 bedroom house. Her house is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house, which means Addy gets 2 rooms! A bedroom and a toy room! lol! :) She's getting so big you guys! We started her on cereal Tuesday, it was SO much fun seeing her eat it! She made such a big mess, I loved it! :) I just love watching her everyday discovering new things! It shocks me really b/c just this past Saturday, she couldn't reach the floor while in her jumperoo, and on Tuesday I put her in there and she could reach!! She's also starting to reach for her toys, and holds on to them really good! She puts me in the best mood every morning, b/c she's always so happy when she wakes up! She just brightens my day everyday!!! :)

Sbumblebeeo- Wow, today is the day, congratulations!!! I know this has been a long awaited day, I'm SO happy for you! :) Can't wait for your update that your little girl is here, and I'm very anxious to see pics!!! :)

Kmcarino- So happy to hear everything is going great on your end!! I can't believe you're already in your third trimester! :)

Mommyin10- Hey you! ;) Sounds like everything is going great with the babies!! Wow, they're switching Ricky's formula, how exciting he's getting off his preemie formula! What did they end up putting him on? Ava will catch up soon! ;) So, have you started tummy time yet? I love putting Addy on her tummy, especially now b/c she can really hold her head up and look all around! :) Have you thought about when you'll go back to work? Addy has her 4 month check up on April 9th at 10 am... which means more shots! :(

Dnikki- Wow, Peyton's 2 months already??!! That's crazy! I know, it was SO sad when Addy had her 2 month appointment and had to get her shots! :( I couldn't watch! And she has that delayed reaction, ya know? So when they did the shots, she screamed like 10 seconds later and she was so upset she held her cry in so her face was bright red! The nurses just stared at her, and I'm like yelling "breathe, breathe!" It was horrible! :( Can't wait to see new pics! :)

Babymadd- Yayy for ovulating!! :) Good luck! ;)

jmh2005- Oh, I'm sorry you're so sick! :( I hope you start feeling better soon!!

Keyan- CD 14 already!? Wow, I really haven't been on in a while! I know the adoption process is your priority right now, but I'm still sending good luck vibes for this cycle! :)

Hi, ladies.  So, our appt on Wed. went well.  Richard is now 7 lbs, 4 oz and Ava is 6 lbs, 7 1/2 oz!  The doc kept them both on the 22-calorie formula and we'll likely switch it to a 20-cal next week.  We go back on Friday.  Both babies have a slight umbilical hernia, which the doc said wasn't something to worry about.  He'll just keep an eye on them.  I was concerned that it was causing pain & maybe that's why Richard cries/screams at times, but the doc assured me it wouldn't cause them pain, so I feel better.  It's so hard to believe they're 6 1/2 weeks old already & yesterday was my due date =)  dh and I took some great pics of the babies together & finally ordered our announcements.  They turned out so cute!  I promised I wouldn't post pics or send them out before the announcements go out, so I'll post them in another week :)

sbumblebeeo:  We're all thinking of you & Shelby and looking forward to your update!!!  I hope everything went smoothly & you're resting comfortably, loving & admiring your little girl!!! =)

Leighanne:  I love Jaedyn's new pics!  He's gotten so big & sat so well for his photo shoot =)

Luvkayln:  Wow, I didn't realize the move to Catalina meant a new house for you!!!  That's great =)  Addy will need extra room for all her clothes & toys!  heehee :)  Her new pics are just beautiful.  She's such a happy girl :)  I love that she's accompanying you to see Kayln, too.  So sweet! Their doc didn't switch his formula yet.  He said maybe this next week.  It'll just be switched to a 20 calorie formula rather than 22.  We use Similac now, so we'll stick with that or switch to Enfamil.  Not too sure yet.  We haven't started tummy time yet.  I do hold each baby up on my chest after they eat, though & they each hold up their heads to look at me!  It's amazing to me that they can do that.  Their necks are so strong already :)  We'll have to get out their jumperoo, cradle swing or bouncy seats!  I'm sure they'd enjoy those now! =)  It's so nice to hear how Addy brightens your day!  I feel the same way & it's just too awesome for words =)

jmh2005:  I hope you had a wonderful vacation even though you got so sick!  Poor you! ;(  I hope you feel better soon!

kmcarino: That's great your appt went so well & you're ready to schedule your growth scan!  Those are so amazing =)  It's good you're gaining weight.  I can't believe I was 176 when my babies were born & I'm already down to 139 without exercise or anything.  Just taking care of them ;)

dnikki:  Sorry in advance to Peyton for her shots next week ;(  We'll be getting ours in 2 weeks...  I didn't realize our babies were so close in age!  It sounds like she's doing great & gaining well.  How's big brother handling having a lil sis? :)  Good luck with the computer!  How'd we ever survive without them?!

BabyMadd:  Yahoo!  Congrats on O'ing & best wishes for this cycle =)
