    somehow I completely missed this thread!

    Eliann - I'm glad you're okay! Good luck with JLIH. As for asking for more, after the first (forget how I told DH that time) he has basically just known I want more. For the last two kids (and #4) TTC planning has mostly depended on when would be best given his job and what spacing we want. Honestly, though... I have a spreadsheet of what ages I and our kids would be if we got pregnant during X month. I think it goes through when I'm 34 (I'm 2 and covers 6 kids (DH has agreed to a 4th but is very hesitant to go past that). Oh, and it has tentative dates for TTC... DH knows nothing about it.

    Isis - I'm glad you got a TTC date. I'm sorry it's so far away!

    Mel - exciting! I loved having a spring baby.

    Sara - good luck talking with DH. Have you considered going out on a date and bringing it up over dinner?

    Cindyanns - June is so soon! I'm sorry DD has been pushing you away. It's tough when they do that. But, I think the come around again for a little bit. My 2 1/2 year old and 4 year old are both back into snuggles. But LO is already pushing me away because he wants to go explore.

    AFM: I'm pretty sure we won't move TTC up (I'm thinking October), so unless I get unexpected news when I test in the next day or two then no big plans for the month.

    Kathleen - good luck on the kitchen, that's such a big job!

    Sara - yeah, don't much like the gym either, but it's a necessary evil so I can have another baby and be healthier during the pregnancy!

    Cindy - Yahoo! That's so close! Yeah, I have two toddlers at the moment! Ummm, can you hear my house now "No! Screech No! Mine!" LOL


    So far I have had a June and a December baby. I think a Spring baby would be nice! Plus I want to enjoy most of the summer at the beach and such before getting pregnant and it gives us longer to get in a better place financially too.

    The Tea party Sprinkle was fun! It was slightly odd because I didn't know that the tea room was inside a giant Christmas store. We took lots of photos in front of the north pole! Haha.

    Cindyanns-Yes we are planners, but in a much different way than it sounds like you are. There's a commericial out right now that explains my situation for the past year. I say I want a baby, and DH says "but we have to take our arch exams, buy a house, go to amsterdam, hike macchu picchu, buy a new car, get better jobs." Haha. But we are finally JLIH, thank goodness. Since we decided to JLIH, I haven't talked about JLIH. I guess that's the whole point of JLIH? I don't want to jinx anything, KWIM? Yay for June!

    Mel-Yay for TTC in August. A spring baby would be perfect!! Ever since I contacted that psychic last summer, I've been convinced I would conceive in August 2012 and it will be a boy. Can't wait to find out if that's true. I almost want it to be true, so there may be some serious BD'ing going on in August if I'm not pregnant before then. And Yay for joining the gym. Lesli would be proud. Haha. I have not been to that zumba class in awhile. I have been going to yoga once a week and this class I'm taking is way more advanced than I'm used to. It kicks my butt.

    Virginia-LOL, I love that you have a spreadsheet. That's hilarious. I don't have anything like that for TTC, but I love names and when I get bored or I'm waiting for a 2GB photoshop file to open at work I make pages and pages of name combos. I've been naming things since I was child. I named all the household pets, my stuffed animals, even my plants and my cars have had names.

    Kathleen-Hello and welcome back! Sorry you have to wait so long to TTC. But the kitchen remodeling sounds fun. Kitchens are my favorite part of any house!

    Sara-Glad you had a fun night out!

    Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend and you aren't working tomorrow!!

    Eliann - I hope you don't have to wait until August for a BFP.

    Mel - I have December, August, then late April. Spring was nice.

    AFM: I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant. I was expecting at least a little disappointment at seeing a BFN, but last night was crazy. DS1 wet rhough a pull-up (again) and woke up soaked. He threw a fit and managed to wake both his brothers (they share a room). DS2 got up to use the potty (he's night-time trained) and DS3 nursed. We got the younger two back to sleep, but DS1 spent an hour screaming and crying about stupid things (like that his new pants weren't the correct ones to go with his pajama shirt and he liked his old, wet pull-up better, etc). And since DH slept in and went into work late he probably won't get home until close to midnight. Again.
    So, that's my crazy life in a nutshell. At least we have a playdate this morning.

    Elizabeth - I hope you don't have to wait until August but it would be a ton of fun to be on a BB together! Yep, Lesli would be proud - do you see her around on preg.org anymore? Yoga is NOT my thing - I'll do pilates, but Yoga is either too advanced, or bores me to tears!


    Virginia - saw that drop in your chart. It's probably best for now, right! Your oldest must be annoyed that the almost 3 year old is already night trained and he's not. that has to be hard. Sounds like DH's schedule doesn't always work for you all! How often do you have the kids from wake up to bedtime without DH?

    Yeah, I like the drop. I don't really want the exhaustion and m/s during the summer when the kids want to be running around outside all the time! I did get super jealous when I saw a pregnant woman earlier today, though. Whenever my heart yells out "I want another baby!" my head has to step in and add "but not just yet".

    This week I've had them from wake-up to bedtime almost every day. Sometimes DH comes home just in time to read to them then works from home for a few hours. Most weeks he's able to come home for dinner or at least bedtime. Honestly, given his career I'm lucky he rarely has to work on the weekends. And I'm always thankful he doesn't travel.

    You know, oddly the oldest doesn't seem to care that the younger one is in underwear before him. It helped when we switched him to pull-ups at night so now he can get ready for bed all by himself.

    I totally dread potty training! It scares me! hahaha!
    Eliann- In a Christmas store? It is Xmas stuff year round? That sounds interesting!

    It was almost the right setting to talk to DH last night but not quite. We have friends coming over tomorrow and bringing their 3 kiddos. SO I am sure the topic will be brought up then.

    Potty training is not fun, but IMHO if you wait until the child is ready it's not so bad. Ethan has day trained in about 2 weeks with very few accidents. He had two accidents yesterday but we were at the playground that doesn't have a bathroom, so not really his fault IYKWIM. We won't be night training for awhile since he wakes up wet all the time, and I don't want to bother at this point.

    Sara- I bet the topic does come up.

    Potty training has been my least favorite part of the whole thing. Lol. My daughter just doesnt want to do it. I keep waiting , but we are not getting any closer.

    potty training is tough, but it's so worth it after.
