October Chat Thread!
Happy October! This is probably my favorite month. I love the beginning of fall, the changing of the leaves, and normally I LOVE all the delicious pumpkin and apple-flavored treats, but I don't think I'm going to be able to stomach them this year. Booo!
ETA: I just heard from my mom, and my dad's surgery for his herniated disc is on Friday at noon. It can't come soon enough! I've never seen the man so miserable, and I thought he was pretty darn miserable when he tore his ACL and had to have knee surgery. The man needs to stop injuring himself. Although, he has no clue what caused this one. The doctors told him that a herniated disc as bad as his is almost always due to some trauma, but my dad can't really link it to any specific incident. Crazy...
Amanda - :bighug: sorry your MIL is such a pain.
Ashley - great lines!
Grenet - I can't believe they're almost two, either! Wow. I hope they keep feeling better.
Lauren - I hope your dog is okay. How old is he?
Mary - I hope your dad's surgery goes smoothly.
AFM: no progress towards O. I hope by the end of this month I've at least managed that. A BFP would be nice, too.
Lovely. I'm bleeding again. It's no more than light (yet) but it's red. Yet my cervix is still HSO and my ovaries still hurt. At least, it feels exactly like my ovaries hurting. And I had EWCM this morning. I am so stumped. If it continues I'm going to call and see about having and u/s done.
Virginia - Ugh, that is incredibly frustrating. I really hope it all gets sorted out soon. I know how miserable it is to be stuck in limbo.
Ashley - I love the new pee-stick pic! Woohoo!
Amanda - Sorry your MIL is so difficult to deal with. Why would she yell at the niece just for talking to you?? wtf?
Grenet - Good to hear from you! I can't believe your babies are almost 2! Time flies, wow. Sorry everyone has been sick. I hope they feel well soon.
Lauren - Good luck with your dog... I hope no surgery is needed.
AFM - My initial appointment with the nurse is tomorrow. I wish I could say something magic to get her to send me for an ultrasound, but I don't think she will. She did with Calvin, but only for dating purposes since I didn't have an AF after the m/c. Ahh, I still remember that moment when he popped onto the screen. I didn't see the little flash of his heartbeat for a slight second, but then there it was... I was straining to choke back the tears, haha. I'd love a peek of this bean, but not expecting much. Oh well, two more weeks isn't a TERRIBLE wait, I suppose.
Virginia - Hope the bleeding stops soon and you can get on with TTC.
Mary - Hope your appointment goes really well, I am sure the two weeks until the U/S will fly by.
Messaged MIL privately on facebook, shes not mad at me for talking to DH's niece but mad at DH's niece over something else. Still MIL does bother me but not over that. YAY!
Natalie is having an absolutely wonderful time with her swimming lessons, today they had life preservers on, she got flipped on her back while the teacher was with another kid and couldn't get back upright, at first there was a moment of panic then she realized that if kicked she could swim around the pool and have a good time even though she was stuck on her back.
Alright off to bed for me I'm EXHAUSTED!
okay... so the bleeding stopped as abruptly as it started and today my OPK is a little darker... this is so weird. I don't think I'm very likely to get pregnant this cycle, but we'll still try.
Grenet: great to hear from you! I love your kids pics on FB :)
Lauren: good vibes for your dog :vibes: My poor dog sort of gets pushed to the side a lot, but a few months ago we thought he was really sick and suddenly I was completely stressed about him again.
Virginia: weird about the bleeding. Crossing my fingers that things get back to normal for you soon, I'm sure this is pretty stressful not knowing.
Mary: Best of luck to your dad!! October is my fave too but probably because it's Halloween and my b-day. I'll send you magic u/s vibes so just maybe you'll get a sneak peek!
Amanda: sorry about the MIL. That's great that Natalie is in swimming lessons. I REALLY need to get Brekke is some but I've been trying to wait for the preschool shock to wear off.
DH gets home tonight from his work trip. As much as I hate him being gone, for whatever reason I'm like 200% more productive when he leaves. Probably partially because I stay up until midnight doing stuff whereas DH likes to go to bed at like 10 (he does wake up at 5 though so I can't get too annoyed). Anyway, I got a lot done and am sooooo close to done with refinishing that bed I've been working on. I'll post pics as soon as I finish.
Mary - hmm... have your cycles been at all irregular? Is there any chance you don't recall when your LMP was? GL with your appointment.
Virginia - sorry about the bleeding. My guess would be that it's related to that chunk of tissue you lost...
Mary - good luck trying to get a sneak peak! And I'm glad your dad was able to get in for his surgery so soon!
Amanda - Xander loves swim class, too! I can't believe what a great little swimmer he has become. I'm glad Natalie was able to have fun instead of panic when she got flipped on her back.
Ash - I hope you're taking before/after pics of the bed. I want to see what you did!
AFM - The vet thinks that most likely Brodie has a luxating patella, which is when the knee cap pops out of place. It usually goes back in on its own, but sometimes it gets stuck and then the surrounding tissue swells and it can't move back. So she put him on anti-inflammatory meds to reduce the swelling so that it'll hopefully go back on its own. He has a recheck next week. If it hasn't gone back on its own then he may need surgery... So here's hoping it rights itself! Until then no walks for the poor guy. He just doesn't understand when I take Zuul out for a walk and he has to stay home. He probably thinks he's being punished or something.
So I can't believe I'm almost third tri!!! EEK! My uterus feels really high all of the sudden, like I can feel it in my lungs now. Yippie. My balance has pretty much gone to crap. Also, I've been super scatter brained. Like all of the sudden I can't focus on more than one task at a time. Today Xander was asking me 20 BILLION questions while we were driving and I kept putting my turn signals on for NO reason when I'd try to listen to him/answer him! WTH!? The guy driving behind me probably thought I was insane! I finally just had to start tuning Xander out and not answering him, because I was afraid I'd drive off a freakin' cliff or something! lol
Also, I love that Xander's ticker says he's 3 years old. Uh... Not for a few more weeks. haha.
Lauren: I saw your belly pic on FB. Xander looked so grown up in the background! Is he tall for his age? Sorry about the doggie.
Virginia- I'm sure that has to be very tiring and confusing. Hope your body starts figuring it out soon.
Amanda- The swimming lessons sound fun.
