    Virginia - Nice OPK! Too bad you didn't try, hahaha.

    Amanda - Sorry about the food poisoning, blaaaah. Safe travels home!

    Katie - It's good to hear you've found a better sleep solution. People think we're crazy for cosleeping, but hey, whatever gets me the most sleep... I'm all for it, hahaha. I'm hoping they'll be out of the room by the time they're teenagers too, lol... BUT... I will say, I slept on the floor of my parents' room many, many nights until I was probably 12 also, just like Virginia said. And you know, I NEVER equated it to the anxiety until she said that, but now that I think of it, I guarantee that's why. I was terrified to sleep alone and would lay awake scared if I was by myself. Wow...

    AFM - I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I started cutting the pills in half, just to wean off of them. Having taken them for a week, it was sorta iffy as to whether or not I could just stop them cold turkey without any adverse effects. I've taken 1/2 tablet for the last 3 days, and I actually feel pretty good. I haven't decided what I'm going to do yet. I might just keep taking 1/2 tablet for a bit and see if that helps. I hadn't really considered therapy (like virginia mentioned, I try to do the cognitive behavior modification on my own, but i still worry myself sick about certain things from time to time)... I was hoping I'd have the same success with the medication this time that I had previously. It's insane to me that I could take it before with no side effects AT ALL, then have every side effect imaginable now. So weird. We'll see what happens.

    Mary - So weird that you did that, too. I hope the half pills work for you. feel better.
    yeah, I'm kind of bummed we didn't go for it. Now I'll keep wondering what would have happened. BUT, I don't actually want twins, and it would have been "timed" for a boy, and I don't want DH stuck inside with the 3 older boys during his pat leave! I want him able to take them out so baby and I can snuggle and sleep. So, I'm hoping for May 2013.

    Amanda - glad vacation has been good! Sounds very busy but fun!

    Mary - GL figuring it all out. And I agree sleep is good I just can't function with no sleep.

    Virginia - a May baby sounds wonderful. If we have a 3rd I'm NOT doing the winter baby thing again!

    not much excitement here....the weather was nice today and I'm itching for our playset to be delivered! http://www.rainbowplay.com/index.php...ge-iii-loaded/ that's the set.....I think I'm as excited as Evan LOL

    Wow, Katie! I want one, too! Those boys are going to have fun.

    Lauren - how are you doing? I miss you!

    AFM: Oed yesterday. Glad that's done. It's funny, I wanted Alex to be a May baby but was BFing and couldn't get pregnant until later. I wanted Oliver to be a May baby, but just missed it. Maybe the third try will work.

    Phew, all caught up! My sister was here for a few days, so I fell behind. Sorry!

    Virginia, wow that was a nice OPK! But yeah, not great timing. It's funny how hormones can make our normally logical brains play tricks on us around O time! You have a plan in place of when to TTC, but then you're about to O and BAM you want to now! haha.

    Katie, glad you guys came to a good sleep solution. Hopefully Rory will just naturally be ready to move out of your bed soon.

    Mary, have you thought about trying some other brands? Or if the half pill is working, maybe talk to your doctor about a lower dose? I'm sorry about your anxiety, kids definitely amp it up!

    Amanda, I always feel that way during a vacation, too! Vacations with kids are hard!!

    AFM, not too much going on. Still pregnant as far as I know. haha. Some days I have a lot of symptoms and other days I have zero symptoms and almost forget I'm pregnant. I think I had more nausea when I was 4 weeks than I do now at 6 weeks, which is funny because "they" always say nausea doesn't normally start til 6 or so weeks. Hopefully I'll be lucky again like I was with Xander and never get m/s. That'd be swell! I hate throwing up! I'm bloated and my pants are getting snug, though I haven't gained any weight. I think it won't be long until I have to break out the Bella Band! haha.

    Lauren - Good luck on not getting m/s! I didn't have it with Calvin, but I was horribly nauseated until 15-16 weeks with Sean. It was terrible, but of course when I was pregnant with Calvin, I was begging for m/s because his pregnancy was so weird with all the bleeding and whatnot. I never did get nausea though, which is good because I HATE that feeling. Blech...

    AFM - Starting my long 9-day week at work, then 5 days off for the weekend of my SIL's wedding. It's going to be exhausting. The rehearsal is late next Friday evening, then we'll have to drive 2 hours home. Then I have to be at the hair salon at 8:30 Saturday morning, get my hair done, then make the 2 hour drive back for the wedding. Then of course 2 more hours driving home that night. I'm looking forward to it, but at the same time, I dread the exhaustion that is sure to come. And dealing with the two kids through a wedding when I'm wearing a long dress and heels will NOT be fun. It should be interesting.

    Lauren - glad you're feeling ok! I didn't have much sickness with either kid. I threw up a couple times with Rory but it was very fleeting, ate, it all came back up and i was fine again in a matter of minutes. Bizarre.

    Mary - Oh man we did Evan at a wedding once and I swore I'd never do it again. For my sister's wedding next Sept I've already decided the boys will do the ceremony, pictures, and maybe a bit of the reception then they are going to a sitter. We'll probably have one of DH's nieces come and stay at the hotel and take the boys. Running after kids at a wedding was too much for me. Of course it wasn't a family wedding so it wasn't like anyone else really wanted to juggle Evan, it might be better with family around to help.

    Mary - I was in my sisters wedding when the boys Alex was 13.5m. It wasn't too bad. During the ceremony they were DH's job (since I was a bridesmaid) and they were okay during the reception (late morning wedding). I brought flip flops to change into because I'm hopeless in heels and we ducked out a bit early (I was also 8w pregnant, exhausted, and nauseous). Good luck. I hope the boys behave.

    Katie - just occurred to me - have you tried a co-sleeper? Or does Rory have to be snuggled up to you?

    Lauren - I hope you miss the m/s. Mine has been brutal with all the kids. Next time, I'm calling and asking for Zofran as soon as I get my BFP. I don't know how I survived the first two pregnancies without it. (I had it with Oliver, but not right away)

    Mary, sounds like a tiring week ahead!!! Since this is a family wedding I think you should ask for help from other family members, especially since you're IN the wedding! I'm sure there are lots of aunts or cousins that'd be happy to help keep the kiddos entertained. We brought Xander to SIL's wedding and he did fine for the ceremony (though we had to keep him in the back so we could stand) and then he stayed for an hour or so of the reception before my parents took him home.

    Speaking of nausea, I guess I spoke too soon because I am a bit nauseous this morning... I don't think I'm at a point where I'd puke or anything, just not feeling so hot. Though the longer I'm up, the better I feel. I could use an extra hour (or two, or three... four?) in bed, though! SLEEPY! I'd say yay for coffee, but decaf doesn't really help. hahaha

    Lauren - Boo (and woohoo at the same time, haha) for nausea! I hope you feel better. That's the one thing I do NOT miss about pregnancy. Blech...

    Virginia - I wish I'd had zofran for Sean's pregnancy. I was miserable for MONTHS. Ugh. But I was still in Illinois for the first half of my pregnancy with him, and the doctor I had there was all anti-nausea meds. He eventually (after much begging) gave me phenergan, which to me is stupid. Phenergan is category C, zofran is category B. And zofran doesn't cause that loopy/drowsy feeling like phenergan. So I took half of a phenergan when I was desperate and nearly unable to get through my work day. Thankfully, my current OB is all about zofran, but then I didn't even need it with Calvin.

    Katie - I imagine this wedding will go much the same way.. At least there will be family there to hopefully entertain them.

    AFM - So I totally forgot to mention that Sean is going to be a ring bearer in the wedding! This kid is SO bull-headed. He doesn't want to do ANYTHING unless he thinks it's his idea. So how I'm going to get him to obediently walk down an aisle is beyond me. I'm a little scared, hahah. I did also forget that my parents are going to the wedding, so they'll gladly entertain the little ones.
