    Aaaah! Katie, I want us to both get knocked up and share a BB, hahaha. And we can both have babies of the same sex so we can either be Team 3 Boy or Team 2 Boys and a Baby Girl. Hahahaha... Fun times.

    Virginia - Sorry the ms is kicking your butt. I do not miss that part, that's for sure.

    AFM - Exhausted and soooo glad to be off for the weekend now..

    I think #4 is it for us. I just don't know if I can go through m/s again after this. It is so d@mn hard. I'm exhausted and still getting nausea even with the zofran which brings its own unpleasant side effects. It's making me grouchy and despite my best efforts I end up taking it out on the kids who have been watching too much TV and movies just to let me rest. And being so rundown is making me blue and I know I need to fight that because I can't let myself get any more useless than I already am. Oh, and DH just called to tell me he has to work late (very apologetically). Can I just skip ahead to the second tri? Or spend the next 6 weeks asleep? I feel like I can;t enjoy the wonderful kids I already have when I feel this gross.

    Ugh, I remember that feeling very well, Virginia... Even though it was nearly 4 years ago for me (since I lucked out of it with Calvin). I remember the feelings of worthlessness and feeling depressed about it. And I didn't have any kids to run around and take care of. All I had to do was take care of myself and I could barely hold it together. Just remember, it's temporary and oh-so-worth it when you see that sweet little face. *hugs*

    yeah. I know it's worth it. But I remember telling myself last time I'd never do this again and now I remember why. I just have to keep telling myself it'll start to get better in 5 1/2 weeks. But all our vacation (at my favorite place ever) is during that time, so I'm afraid I won't get to enjoy it.
    Maybe I should take twin girls vibes. Then we'd definitely be done. But, I'm pretty sure we just have one, even with the bad m/s.

    Mary - Bite your tongue! I am not ready for 3 and if I wound up prego I'd need a serious pep talk. Don't get me wrong I'd get over it and probably be thrilled but there would be a moment of emotional meltdown! Rory has been such a difficult baby he's just starting to entertain himself, sleep away from me a little (not that he sleeps through the night, he's up at least twice) etc. He's so needy his head would probably explode if he had to share me with an infant! But team 2 blue 1 pink would be fun.....but more fun in 2015!

    Virginia - I'm so sorry you get SO sick! What a total bummer that is Hopefully you can get through it and once on the other side you might change your mind. Hope it lets up some I have hardly any m/s so I can't even relate but when I get a stomach bug I want to crawl in a hole so I think I'd be totally non-functioning if I had m/s like you do!

    LOL, Sorry Katie! The way I see it, if they're close together, you're still sleep deprived from the last one, so you won't even hardly notice the additional sleep deprivation of the next one, hahaha.

    Yeah, m/s really does suck. Blech. Of course, the lack thereof sucks as well. The next time I get pregnant, can I please have a moderate level of nausea? Just enough to make me feel confident that I have a sticky bean, but not so bad that I'm dysfunctional?? That would be ideal.

    ha ha. Good luck with that, Mary!

    I found some optimism. I made some ravioli for dinner (stuffed with chicken and mozzarella) and it tasted amazing. I have had to force myself to eat the past few days, so that was nice. I think part of the problem is that I crave salt (and protein, when not nauseous) right now and since we tend to eat a low sodium diet we don't have many salty things around. I've been practically living off string cheese. I also remembered that I had a few really rough days around this time with Oliver and then I started feeling better. Maybe it just takes a little while for me to fully respond to the zofran or something. I hope that happens again.

    Virginia - I'm glad you were able to have a good meal! That always helps. I'm the same way with salt in early pregnancy.

    AFM - I *think* I probably O'ed yesterday. I had some pinchy O-type pains while at work and a good bit of EWCM. We DTD, but not until 8-10 hours after the O pains, so I'm not really optimistic about that one.

    You DTD again unprotected? HAHA I LOVE IT! You might be surprised! Rory is the product of long living sperm! I think I O'd 5-6 days after we DTD we were JLIH and I didn't want his bday so close to Evan's (ha that worked out well...) I thought we were definitely safe so far before O. DH is still (privately of course) rather proud of that.

    Besides some EWCM and a soft kind of open cervix I have no other signs so I think I'm safe. I did some crunches which are making it hard to gage if there are O pains. I'm thinking if anything it's annov or gearing up to O then quitting. My cycles have been so whacked out. I had my first PP AF at ~3 months PP then I had a normal cycle after that at roughly 31 days then I went 3 month before my last AF and now I'm at 30+ days....

    It is a little fun to obsess....

    I feel like a BFP storm is a brewin'! hahahahaha We'll all be stalking you Mary and Katie!

    Virginia - I'm glad you got a good meal in. If you found something that works, eat it again! There's nothing wrong with eating the same meal a few times in a row (given it's not a carton of ice cream or something, heh). I hope you start to feel some more relief soon.

    AFM - starting to feel like a whale, I feel like my belly exploded this week! I'm sure part of it is bloat because I keep eating crap food. I finally broke that cycle yesterday, so hopefully that'll help. I've had my first BH contractions already. Talk about early! I didn't have a lot, just a few... Here's hoping I don't have to deal with a ton of those again! I keep hearing from people who use midwives that if you get a ton of them and water/laying down doesn't help that a small (2-3 oz) glass of wine is supposed to stop them. I'm going to bring that up with my dr at my next appt. Not that I'd want to regularly drink it at all, but if I start getting them every 4-5 minutes for hours on end like I did with Xander (which landed me in the hospital), I'd definitely be willing to try that as a last resort... But I can't find any actual studies on it, just what peoples midwives tell them based on experience.
