Yep, It's April - we need a new thread!
What is going on this month? Anyone TTC or JLIH this month?
Still JLIH. It hasn't happened in the opportune time still. Maybe this will be my month. If not, then I'm hoping in May because we have a hotel date during O time.
Sara-Did you talk to DH about #2? Let us know how that goes. I'm curious how other women go about this as well. All I say is "I want a baby." Not too creative.
AFM-Today in north Texas there were tornados everywhere. Like 12 of them I heard. Our office duck and covered in the conference room. But it didn't do damage by us. But in Arlington, where my Dad lives, it got hit really bad. My friend's niece's daycare got its roof torn off and a tree flipped over. The kiddos are all ok. My dad is ok too and so is his house. Lots of power outages. It was a scary day though.
Eliann- Glad ya'll are OK. My BFF is in the Dallas area and was evacuated twice, one even touched down near her oldest sons school. I was so worried. The news reports say there are minimal injuries so hopefully the storms are done with!
Nope no chat yet. My DH is moody so the timing has to be really really right. Kinda like he is having some cocktails being all lovey kinda mood. He knows I want another one. I flat told him that on our 5 year anniversary last october. So he knows.
Eliann- Hope you can catch an eggy during your overnight out!
Oh and didnt you have a tea sprinkle- how did it go?
Otherwise, nothing new here. going out to dinner with the girls tomorrow night. I rarely get out so I am stoked! One of my friends going is 13 weeks so I am excited to see her.
Eliann- glad you are ok.
Sara- good for you telling dh you want another.
I am sure no one remembers me. Lol. I poted her awhile ago. Dh goes back and forth aboit wanting anotjer and when. We are on wanting another again. He wants to wait though until it is time for the mirena to come out. That is September 2014. I will be topped out then. Hopefully we can get a bigger house. Anyways his only issue with it right now is that he is afraid something my go wrong and he doesnt want that. My daugter had a focus on her heart and two cyst on her brain. Both markers for Downs. Things resolved though and everthing was fine. I dont think.he wants to go through that.cagain. I am excited he is taljing about it though. It is a start. I have been looking into a water birth at abirthing center. Althought there were issues with my son too so I dont know how relistic my wants are.

Elizabeth - I hope JLIH works for you in April or May!
Sara - get DH liquored up and jump him, then tell him you want another! LOL Have a fun girl's night out tomorrow!
Isisgoddess (sorry don't know your name!) - i've seen you around, not sure on what board though! If you really are interested in a water birth at a birthing center, stop by the Birthing Naturally board - the ladies there can give you a good idea if your wants are realistic or not. They are a very knowledgeable group!
So some news for me! We were waiting to TTC until October because DH was supposed to find out if his company would get renewed on their government contract. He told me today that they extended the contract for another year!!! So that means TTC could move up to sooner! Guess what I did today - joined the gym near my house! LOL need to lose some weight before TTC! If I can lose the weight and convince DH, I'm thinking TTC in August.
uh, yeah duh! Isisgoddess - from the June 2009 board! ha ha! I started off on the July board but DS was born early, so straddled both boards for awhile until they merged recently.
Mel- yep that is me. LOL. Oh and my name is Kathleen. I keep meaning to put it in my siggy but forget to. That is awsome you get to move the ttc date up.
I had another talk about when we would ttc. We agreed to try January '14. That means I have 21 months to go. OOOOO the anticipation. His only request is that we redo the kitchen before we have another child. I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand I would love to have a new kitchen, but the kids rooms are way to small to put two kids in one room so we would have to look for a new home. On the other had, if we redo the kitchen it would help us to sell the house which we will need since we have lost alot of money on this house so far. I think Dh would love to stay here in this house. I really loves it, but like I said it is far to small for a family of 5.

Mel- awesome job with the gym membership! I hate to work out but I am trying to like it. And YAY for August that is not far away at all! I am jealous!
Kathleen- 21 months is a ways to go. We remodeled our kitchen when I was 12 weeks PG with DS. It was a mess for 6 weeks. It really does test your relationship during remodeling.
I had a great night out myself. Still waiting for the cocktail hour for DH to talk. I too worry about the constant worry of another pregnancy. my sister has a chromosone abnormality that isnt bad- but something we have to worry about. So going through another PG with those thoughts for 9 month is so emotionally taxing.
DH just got an awesome surprise bonus, so TTC date is pretty much getting set in stone. We're going to start trying June!
I'm really excited. Baby fever is killing me over here.
On a related note, WTH happened to my current baby?!? She woke up one morning a TODDLER! At least she's still a super cute and super sweet toddler. But when she shakes her head no when Mommy asks for a kiss or squirms away when I try to give her a hug a little part of Mommy cries. *sigh*
When is does the stage come where she wants to cuddle with Mommy all the time?
Other than that, not much going on. I've started doing "Slumber Parties" with my Mom, which has been lots of fun. It's nice to get out of the house and feel productive.
No joke, I started talking about #2 and a possible #3 before Sophia was even born. I said, "So, I want our children to be X years apart, what do you think of that?" Answer... "Yeah, I agree. So we should start trying for our next when Sophia turns one."
When Sophia was nearing a year, we did a brief discussion about how NEITHER of us were ready. HAHA! I said something like, "Yeah, you know how were going to start trying again when Sophia turned one...? I'm thinking maybe we can move that back by another 6 months-year. What do you think?"
Then we've just kind of been going back and forth on the dates. We've pretty much been on the same page as far a TTC goes, give or take a few months.
We talk about #3 as a "we'll see how number 2 goes, what sex #2 is, ect" type thing.
We're planners, can you tell? :P I get the impression you guys are planners, too.
Hope that helps!
