I really did buy some of each while pregnant but hugely my underestimated postpartum size.

And is FAM complicated? Can you get it to work without analyzing 'mucous' ? because I've never really been in tune with my mucous.

Lol, it's true! thanks maximom!
No, FAM is not complicated- I really recommend Taking Charge of YOur Fertility- at first i really really resisted it, thinking it was so controlling and hyper- but it turned out to be something I feel I should have learned in school! (when I was a teenager, meaning it should be known by all girls) and no, cm plays a part, but you would see it all come together if you started charting. I recommend picking up the book and reading it- even if you decide not to do it- but I find it kind of fun!

I thought you were making this up until I googled it. No thanks, I rather like filling the landfill with my pads. (or just stay pg and bf and avoid the bleeding thing all together.)

Hi mommas! Once again, I've been half MIA / half lurking. I don't know what my deal is. I think I just do an over all bad job of managing my time most days. :

All of your LOs are soooooo freakin' beautiful!!

That "free bleeding" site is so funny. It cracks me up 'cuz I've been a "free bleeder" lately and I (like the woman who wrote the article on the front page of the site) just thought I was being lazy and irresponsible. I seem to lightly spot constantly lately and it's not enough really to wear anything, so I just spot up my undies. : Sorry...TMI!

Hhhmmm...what's new with us...

Scout took about 7 steps in a row yesterday. It surprised me, since the most she had take before that was about 2 or 3. I hesitate to say this because I know there are some mommas here that are totally sleep deprived , but she is sleeping super great. I won't give you the details because you might want to punch me. She is a voracious eater, like I remember reading some of your babes are. The other day, DH fed her lunch for the first time and was amazed at how much she was putting away. He was like, "Gees, how many times a day does she eat like this?" She eats 3 meals a day and nurses several times a day as well. She must've inherited DH's metabolism, 'cuz she's really not at all chunky.

I've been having fun with planning her first b-day party. I think it's going to turn out a little bigger than originally planned. It's more for me than for her. I just love doing stuff like that!

She's waking up from her nap...catch you later!

i completely agree with you! after i took a FAM class that my mw taught, i thought--why doesn't every female learn this!! not that every female needs to chart or do FAM but every woman should be taught how to know their cycle. man, i think i didn't even know that i wasn't fertile all the time (ha! i'm embarassed to say this) until i was 20 and taught myself about my cycle. b/f that i guess i didn't really know much about any cycle stuff and i even have an MD dad who taught us all the details of sex ed in descriptive medical fashion.
anyway--it's very empowering. i don't even do temps b/c i'm lazy but it's fun to track my cycle and even chart my moods/creative times/etc.

kewpie-o--nice to "see" you! scout's party sounds like fun! are you inviting a lot of people? it seems like there are more early walkers here than not. i always thought 1 yr was an average walking time but man, i think zenon is one of the few who has not walked!

Yay Scout! Isn't it fun. Desmond is walking more then crawling now, I think he's going to quit crawling all together in the next week or two. He still needs to figure out how to stand with nothing around to pull up on though.

I am going to work on Desmond' birthday party this weekend while my Mom is here. We're doing it at my aunt's house since she has room. I just need to decide what to do for it.

As for the lovely free bleeding stuff, umm no thanks. Though I will go to bed without a pad if I know I am bleeding extremely lightly. I normally am really heavy so it doesn't work though. That being said I am waiting on the rest of my cloth pads so I can go full cloth next month.

I've been on a spending spree this week, our finanaces are wincing. I bought Desmond 4 more night diapers, so he now has 6 (we went with the dream-eze bamboo), 4 more all in ones (dream-eze again DH likes the AIO a lot), the start of the present for my swap person, a car seat (which just arrived, it rocks, I'll post pictures later), and a new Beco Butterfly. I've wanted a Beco for awhile and I really like the look of the Butterfly, especially since I am kind of leery of back carries on my own. It should be nice, it is my birthday present, but I'm getting it early for the airport, since Des and I are heading to Atlanta on the 9th.

DH is upstairs with Des now, he missed his train today, and seeing if he can get him to nap in his crib, it was working, until the dog started barking and made the baby cry again. We'll see how it goes.

Mine started up again in July, and there was no reason for it! I think my body is saying, "No time for vacations, lady, clock is ticking."

Oh, I need to buy peas! I am no good at spoiling him. He's the one who always spoils me. :

He's at the surgery center right now. I had to leave him there I know two people who have died during routine surgeries, so I'm really trying not to freak out.

Hows hubby doing?
post #699 of 717
He's fine! Yay! I bought peas and some of his favorite treats, and I'm trying to keep the house quiet-ish for him (we have no bedroom door).

I feel a little bit sad about the no-more-children factor, but I know it's the right decision for us. Dh said that if I totally freak out in three years and decide I want another one, we can adopt, but at this point I don't see that happening. There's a reason it took me ten years to have a second baby!

Glad your hubby's home and doing well - you're so sweet for buying special treats for him
