Women of Strength!!!

A Strong Woman VS. A Woman 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.

For those who missed the wonderful news, I'm posting dnikki's message from Sunday morning:
Happy Sunday gals :-) I hope everyone is having a good weekend. My SIL cam up from SC yesterday so it's really nice to see her - DS is just loving her lol!! We are going to my MIL's today for a bit. DS is still doing well with potty training but once he's engrossed in something he doesn't let you know when he's gotta go. But at least he still goes when prompted! I was nauseated a bit last night - had one of my sour suckers (for some reason they make it go away for a bit) but it came back right before bed last night. So this morning my dogs wake me up..I decide I'm going to POAS even though I'm only 10DPIUI. I layed in bed with it on my nightstand staring at it literally keeping my fingers crossed and praying for  alittle nudger in there...HOLY ****! My digi says "pregnant"!!!!! SO now I'm hoping it really is right and that I didn't pee on it for too long or something silly like that lol!! DH doesn't even know b/c he's at drill! SO between now and later I will have to think of a cute way to tell him. I think I might also try to get in for a beta tomorrow morning. Do you all think this is it?? Mommyin10 - if you make a new thread could you copy and paste this in there?? Thanks ladies!!!!

Hugs, Love and SSBD to all  :-)

Also, I posted on our old thread that Keyan is in the hospital.  She's okay, but will be hospitalized for a few more days because her WBC was too high.  Please keep her in your thoughts & prayers! ;)

First off.... Dnikki...girl I wish my phone hadn't ate your phone number.  I'm beyond thrilled right now.  I am so excited for you and I will be on pins and needles all day til I find out your beta results.  I'm so happy for you. I knew it would happen.  Congrats dear.

mommyin10- How are you doing?  

luvkayln- I can't wait for your u/s tomorrow.  You're almost to 12 weeks already and that's just crazy wonderful!!  

keyan- You are in my thoughts and prayers.  I'm happy that you're in good hands and I can't wait til you're all better and back with us!

Well, it was an interesting weekend for me.  The puppies are hyper, but good.  They are so dang cute.  I'm starting to get worried that we won't be able to sell them. They are 6 weeks old and all our interested people (other than my in laws) have backed out.  But we'll see what happens.  

I spoke to my father for the first time in 9 months.  That was interesting.  He came to my house and apologized, which went ok.  I told him that I forgive him, but it's not in my power to have him in my life at this time.  He did well.  No hugs, or weird display's of affection.  I was so happy that I was able to stand my ground and say what I needed to say.  

DH and I had a long long talk about TTC and we've decided to try again.  He's going to fill my script this afternoon.  So right now we're just waiting for AF to start.  I called my dr this morning and let him know our decision and he's thrilled for us. He has high hopes.  Which just makes me feel better.  

And can I just say that I hate Monday's?  On Friday I decided to finish up a bunch of stuff on Monday.  I forgot and walked into a mountain of paperwork on my desk!  Ha ha.  I'll be around today checking up, but I better get to these "mountains"!!  

You all are wonderful!

Keyan-  I am sorry to hear that you are in the hospital.  I hope that your level gets back to normal so that you can gop home real soon.

Mrspace- I am glad that you and dh will be ttc again:)  I wish you the best:)

luvkayln-  Congratulations at almost being 12 weeks!  That is great!  I am so happy for you:)

Dnikki: Yay! That's awesome! I'm so happy for you!!! =)

Mrspace: Thanks for letting us know about Nikki! I'm happy you & dh decided to try again! Best wishes =)
473246 tn?1293837273
Dnikki - Great number at 11dpo!!  Awesome!  (thanks for letting us know Mrspace!)

Luvkayln - All the best for your u/s tomorrow!!  Now you will see a little baby moving around...not just a gummy bear!  Can't wait for the update.

Mommyin10 - How long are you on the bcps for?  Do you then stop, wait for AF, and then start lupron?  

Candie - Hope you had an awesome vacation and look forward to your update!  I hope AF got sea sick and stayed far far away! :)

Guesito - I was so happy to read your post about you trying again and with a different RE.  It is so important to like your RE and know that you are a priority!  It makes such a difference. That is so great!!  It will work for you again!  

Keyan - Thinking of you and hope you are out of the hospital very soon!!!

Hannah - Hope you feel better.  It's easy to feel down but good things will happen for you.

Michelle - Good luck with your appt today!

Well, not much new with me.  Dh is painting Jake's room as I write.  So exciting!  He decided to take a few days off this week and start to get things done.  We are reorganizing some of our rooms and clearing out Jakes room and donating a bunch of clothes and stuff we don't want.  Then I can finally order the baby furniture.  The only other big project we are doing is getting rid of our carpets and refinishing the hardwood floor that is underneath it.  Our house is 75 years old and all the hardwood is the original so we are keeping it all and refinishing it.  The only bad news with tht is we need to move into my parent's house for 3 or 4 days in early July! :(  

Well..happy Monday all and SSBD!!!!  Dnikki has got our BFP list started again!!!
