piratemere...yup that's a BFP! Congrats! Sticky baby dust to you! 
Congrats tomtemama and RosieL!  I think I gave congrats to the other mamas in my last drive-by post.  I Lol'd at "morning porn" from tomtemama.  Pregnant sticks are so nice to look at any time of day.  "Pregnant once, pregnant twice, pregnant chicken soup with rice!".  That's a sendak shout-out for all you crazy mamas out there.   I am clearly in some kind of strange hormonal place.  I feel like bouncing off the walls.  I am cutting out coffee (again) and the lack of...
Hello All!   I have a 15 mo old DS and a 4 yr old DS.  I work OH part time and DS #1 is starting Waldorf kindergarten 3 days a week in Sept so our lives are going to be changing in a couple weeks.  I'm nervous about getting into a different rhythm and how its going to affect everyone but especially DS#2 since its hard to explain anything to him.    I am also looking forward to spending one on one time with DS #2.    I don't have any pictures on my work...

Huge congrats to you for being able to be honest with yourself about your challenges.  I think that self-awareness is the first step to any change yet so many people don't want to take a honest look at themselves and admit to their flaws.  Being able to say "this is a problem and I am the cause of it" is at least half the battle as far as I am concerned.   You have also inspired me to really commit to the changes that I need to make in my reactions to my children's...
Wow!  I check out for two weeks (vacation and general insanity) and come to back to find its raining BFP's!  Woot!   Congrats, fishywishy, wengrin, and tantylynn!  Sticky baby dust to you all!   tomtemama - yes, POAS, multiple sticks and then take pictures for us.  I, like RosieL, am a POASporn addict.  I could squint all day long.   stretch358 - hope to see a postive test from you tomorrow too!   piratemere - Hi!  My first PPAF was a doozy also.  I had a...
Just offering  to all the mamas out there struggling with this.  I am one of the lucky mamas who only wakes up 4-6 times a night to nurse .  It was this way and worse with DS1, who at 4, still only sleeps through the night about once a week.  I'm not nursing the 4 year old at night but I can't remember when we night-weaned.  It was a gradual process and coincided with moving him out of our bed and me being pregnant with DS2.  The 14 mo old has a nice 4 hour chunk of...
Hope this still may be helpful to you...First question would be are you or any family members handy?  I'm envisioning an 'L' shaped 'wall' for the side of your bed.  The long piece would slide under your mattress and the short piece would extend up the side of your mattress and then another foot or so to make a headboard for the side of your bed.  You could make it as wide as you wanted but I think three feet would be sufficient.  You could make it out of reclaimed...
tomtemom - if AF isn't due for another week. maybe your cramping and spotting are implantation.  What's your LP like?  I'd wait to POAS for 3 more days at least.  I didn't get BFP's on FRER's until at least 14-16 DPO but that's just me.  That's a pretty impressive TTC acronym string there, isn't it?   tolovemercy - Welcome!  I have noticed after the birth of DS2 that CP is a little trickier to figure out.  I think that my os is always a little open now and my...
Rosie - I think that my DH is going to be very careful for a couple months and then he's going to get cocky and think that he's got this cycle thing down and then we're going to have the oops.  That's my plan anyway (Insert devious smiley here).  I told him that I would chart my cycle on the family calendar and I always synch with the moon so he can pretty much figure that 5 days before and 2 days after a full moon is the danger zone.  It's not rocket science.  And I am...
