No personals right now, keeping it quick since I am at work and have lots to do.
AF started up yesterday in full force, relieved for that.
Have been dealing with family drama, my sister separated from her other half recently. My mom has been horrible for supporting her, she's been there but hasn't really been there, if you get what I mean. Yesterday my sister had a really rough day, barely made it a few blocks from her workplace (on her commute home) and texted DH, we met up with her had coffee and calmed her down, helped her out. We also let her know that we are a safe to turn to, and she's welcome to come by at any time.
I'm so glad you're able to help her, Amanda.
AFM: My sister is the equivalent of 9dpo today. I've had BFPs with all my pregnancies at either 9 or 10dpo. She's waiting for her blood test (she's keeping the day a secret so she can announce when she wants). Now how do I get rid of my POAS urge? :doh:
Actually feeling a little fertile, but I'm sure it's a fake out. The question is how sure am I? Since Arthur is under 6mo and still exclusively BF on demand (usually every 4 hours at night still) I think I'll ignore it.
Amanda - I hope your sister has better days ahead and I'm sure you are a huge comfort
Virginia - I'm excited for your sister :) I hope this is it! I can't even imagine that level of stress. And ignore the fertile signs...MWhahaha ;) I think you probably are safe and if not one more makes five :)
AFM - super appointment. Baby was measuring 13 weeks, which isn't enough to change anything. NT was totally in the normal range blood won't be back until next week. I keep calling the baby he, I think I will be shocked if it isn't a third baby boy. Monday I'll tell work, get that out of the way. Then hopefully we'll head to NY for closing soon and tell our families. E&R had their first dentist appointments today. I know, I know waiting until E was 4 was late....but on the bright side both kids were fantastic and had beautiful healthy teeth so YAY! And then all 8 dogs went to the vet (in two groups of 4 and of the foursome I brought 2 in at a time, it's a process). All looked great and the vet was very complimentary which was nice. A nice way to start the weekend :)
Virginia - So exciting for your sister.
Katie - Glad to hear baby is growing well. Nat had her first dentist appointment just this month and she's 5, though the health unit does regular checks in schools and daycare here on kids under a certain age, so a hygienist has seen her twice before then. It's so amazing you can handle all those dogs, we tend to take our animals 2 at a time to the vet and typically it's one dog and one cat with two people. Our vets are amazed at how well our animals behave, especially since both our dogs are high strung breed mixes.
My sister decided to take a break from her troubles and visit a friend in Texas, DH and I are going along with her to keep her company. My mom is watching the girls and the house for the days we are gone. Looking forward to getting away from the cold for a short bit. :D
Amanda: that sounds like a great break for everyone! I am jealous of the trip
I told my boss. Since I have only been there about six months I think she was surprised and maybe not thrilled but it is what it is. Now she knows. My mom still doesn't since we should be going to NY soon I will tell her in person. Feels more real by the day lol
Amanda - have fun!
Katie - sorry telling work didn't go better, but it must feel nice to have it out in the open.
AFM: no news from my sister and no news on our move.
ETA: Oh my goodness. Arthur has a TOOTH! I knew he was acting like he was teething, but I expected it to last a while. He's not even 5 months yet! And he's already such a biter. Oh dear.
Virginia - I hope your sister shares some good news soon! A tooth...time flies! I hope he doesn't bite yikes!
Telling the rest of my team was fun. Two of the women that report to me are my age (one has a one year old) and they were super excited. Another on the team is also trying to get pregnant (same sex couple her partner is via iui) so she was fun to talk to too. House looks like it should close a week from tomorrow! So exciting!!!
I think I promised some pictures about a month ago.
My little marshmallow splashing in the tub
and a smile from today
Still waiting to hear from my sister. She must know by now. She's 16dpo. I'm nervous that she hasn't said anything yet. And not knowing about the move is driving me crazy. It's hard to know what to start packing when we don't know where we're going! So much of what to take or get rid of depends on that.
Oh total chubby baby! He's getting too big for that little tub quickly! He's adorable and still reminds me most of Raymond. I take it DH's work would be relocating you vs an entirely new job? Would this be the move far away from family? Sigh....come to NC! ;) I so hope your sister has good news and is just waiting for a final confirmation, a HB or something....
I both forgot I'm pregnant completely then feel so excited and like it's so far away and I can't wait to meet him/her (I default to him, it's what I know).
TGIF! Both boys have seemed a little off the last two days. Not exactly feverish but stuffy and cranky and tired. Hopefully a good night's sleep and a calm weekend will help
Arthur is teething, congested, and having a growth spurt all at once. I have barely slept for 3 nights.
I just got back from the Dr and Raymond has scarlet fever (no signs of strep until the rash showed up and he still doesn't have a sore throat or anything) and I get to take Alex and Oliver in this afternoon to find out if they have strep, too. And there's a norovirus going around our area which I'm really, really hoping we don't get.
I want a week off.
