ITA! I think about you guys all of the time. It's so funny how big a part of my life the BSLs really were/are.
And oh my! your twins are so beautiful. I understand baby heaven. For the most part, I'm so there, too!
Ha, ha, that's so me and Asher. He smells a bit like spit sometimes b/c I kiss him too much, lol. TMI.
Emaya, regarding periods... I'm feeling kind of weird wondering about birth control, too. The thing is we think we're done at 2 children. It's just so expensive to live where we do, plus we don't want to be outnumbered. I had postpartum bleeding for about 2 months, then had my first period just a couple of weeks ago (baby girl is 4 months old). She is exclusively breastfed and eats like crazy, so I have no idea how that happened. Did you decide what form of birth control you will be doing? I'd like to avoid anything hormonal until she is done breastfeeding.
I'm doing NFP, but it's nerve wracking without a post-partum AF as a starting point. There is a method, but I just don't trust it as much as when I have regular cycles. And as much as I'd love another baby, I'm really not ready just yet, and DH plus my family (who is helping out A LOT lately) would die.
And here is a photo from Sunday!
That's about the best photo we can get these days
PS-- my little girls were 5lb5oz (on the left) and 4lb12oz (on the right). CHECK OUT THOSE FAT LEGS! Yesterday at the doctors they were 17lb13oz and 15lb8oz! That's all breast milk, folks! I must make cream or something...
Dang, you must! They are so cute and chunky. And so happy!!
Blast from the past! Oh my goodness, so glad to see you ladies are still here! Oh how I've missed you! And how did all these babies get so big?! It happened over night! I have been terrible at keeping up with everyone, I just keep up with Liz via FB. If any of you are on, please feel free to friend me, as I'm a much better FB friend than MDC buddy :/ (DamarisClaude) It really makes me feel good to see all the smiling pics, and to see how our TTC journeys all brought us here. There were lots of tears, but lots of smiles too!
Anyway, I will be visiting more frequently, I promise!
My boys ( the two smallest) are now 14 months old, can you believe it?! They're growing like weeds, and happy to say we are still nursing here is a family pic, sorry, on my iPad, so no other way to post :/
They come to the office with me every day, and my clients love them, win-win!
My eldest is now 8 and we are starting virtual school this coming year, we are gonna have some fun
Oh and did I mention I just found out I'm preggo with number 4????? Completely unexpected miracle after the nightmare of fertility treatments we had to endure with Tristan and Cael, but feeling blessed. I think I'm 11 weeks, but not sure. I literally had no idea I was pregnant until Wednesday when I realized I hadn't had AF since MARCH! After 2 digis and 6 Answers, I figured there was no denying, especially since the test line was so much darker than the control Lol Still cautiously optimistic, going in for an ultrasound tomorrow to make sure we have a sticky bean. No bleeding spotting cramping, but 0 symptoms and that's scary both pregnancies with my boys, i was sick from weeks 8-16!! After a loss, you get completely jaded with this pregnancy experience, no?
Anyway, glad to see you all again, I'm going back to stalk some other people now- keep posting cute baby pics please!!
Good for you on the extended BFing. I <3 that! And congrats on #4!! That's so awesome that you didn't even have to try!
AFM - I <3 my little happy boy. He loves to be held, which can be frustrating, but he has such a sweet personality. He smiles and coos, and my heart just bursts.
Anyone else have trouble with being a worry-wart? I don't know if it's a by-product of the m/cs, but I think I worry about Asher more than I ever did the older two. I will say I worry about DS1 more than DD, which I think may have something to do with him being a preemie. But I worry the most about DS2. I just don't think I could survive something happening to him, he's such a miracle to me.
So here he is on Mother's Day. I'm so in love!
