Welcome to all the new mamas and mamas to be!
sosurreal - I gained over 60 lbs with DS and lost it all with his crazy nursing but have now gained at least 15 of it back. I'm so mad about the lack of pants I have that fit but am stubborn and cheap enough that I refuse to admit defeat and go up a size. I'm hoping that a summer of gardening and chasing around DS will get me back in a semblance of shape before TTC next year.
belacmsage - Did you catch the O? I think you might be our first TWW!
mommyb2nc - We are not trying until Jan 2012 also (I got DH to move up his time frame 3 months) and while it does seem like a long way away now, when I think about the fact that this time next year, we'll be in the thick of it, it doesn't seem too bad. Three cheers for your DD beating cancer! Many healthy thoughts for your family!
Brighids - Congratulations on all the positive things happening in your life right now! I was excited to see someone else uses the word 'wonky'! My friends were just laughing at me this weekend about how often I say it. I would vote for trying after your honeymoon (or on it if the timing works). Morning sickness probably won't kick in right away and that way you are totally focused on TTC. No pre-TTC lists for me but I'm not a list person.
bodhicitta - Yay for empty wombs! Not something I would usually cheer in TTC circles...
justKate - I am keeping everything from DS who is 19 mos. I figure that even if he is over 3 by the time I give birth to #2 all of the stuff will still be good. I don't want to spend the money on all the stuff again anyway. I think the only thing that we will really have to replace is the bucket seat which was a hand-me-down the first time around and is probably well past it's expiration date. We have plenty of attic storage space though so it's easy to keep things.
AFM - I'm close to AF time and starting to get a little cranky. I never really had many emotional effects from O or AF before DS was born but now I'm all over the map during my cycle. Sometimes I get very depressed around O and sometimes it's Day 1 and 2 of AF. Other times, I'm ANGRY and impatient about everything right before AF. I chalk it all up to EBF and regulating cycles but I've had PPAF back for 9 months now...what gives?
Sorry if I forgot anyone...I'm at work (shhhh) and get easily distracted.
