well today has been a really hard day for me i think i am dealing with depression i have been breaking down and crying alot today and think how much has happen over the last 3 yrs and its a bit overwhelming but i am so glad to finally have are rainbow here even though it was a really long road we go back to her heart doc on oct 20 to see if they want to go in and fix the whole in her heart at last look which was last week it had not change any and the right side of her heart has got bigger so we where hoping out of all odds it would get smaller but it has not from what they told us today when they made the appt for oct so it is a little hard to deal with that are baby will probable go under the knife before she is even a year old so i guess are long road is not over yet

It's a long and hard road isn't it, we also go back to cardiology in October, and I really hope we both get good news.
It terrifies me the thought of surgery even though all being well it should be only an overnight stay for us. But really hoping it closes by itself for both our girls.
I've been a bit down too but think it's a bit of birthday blues, it was my birthday yesterday and then also my first af arrived since saffron. Trying to think positive and plan saffrons birthday now. Xx

Thanks uriver, how's amberleys weight doing now? Saffron still a teeny 15 and a half pounds! But healthy and very active and following her line on the growth charts.

I want to give it a go!

Only just had one cycle at 11 months pp, so will chart for a while and read the book.

Really need to do it right as I just can't imagine another pregnancy after 3 preemies, too scared!

Would you think it's important to get the newest edition of the book?

Saw a copy on ebay but it's one of the older editions, not sure if I'd be missing anything important if I buy it?

I doubt you need the newest edition but I don't know what is in it. I found NFP to be really hard to do properly while breastfeeding and without AF. When my cycles were regular and there was no baby at the breast it was easy.

Sorry I've been MIA so long! Happy birthday to the birthday babies!

Clearly I'm not doing so hot at the NFP. I think my cycles are off (they started right after Catherine was born) because we had the surprise pregnancy of Gabriel (who we lost at 11 weeks) and now, 2 cycles later, I'm pregnant again. I'm positive I'm going to miscarry. I didn't even want to get a doctor involved - just wait until there's no hb at home (I have a doppler) and miscarry naturally. My husband said that we have to give this baby every chance at survival so I have an appointment on Friday morning to see the OB. I'm only about 4.5 weeks right now so it's early. My OB had said at my mc f/u appointment that she would get me right in with a high risk doc if I got pregnant again so I could start on heparin shots. I feel like it's already doomed because I"m so old (almost 40) and the baby probably has chromosomal problems. I've lost 3 of the past 4 pregnancies (not counting this one) so my odds are poor. Anyway, sorry to be a downer.

Catherine is doing well. She wants to walk but isn't yet. She cruises up and down furniture and can stand on her own for a while. She has four teeth (two up, two down) and is doing so-so on solids.

As for us, we are ticking along. Saffron is so different to her brother, she's a whirlwind, and needs watching constantly else she's up to all sorts of mischief. She also has decided she likes to breastfeed at least two or three times at night! She's cute and very cuddly and we are very blessed to have her. We are praying for good news at her cardiac appointment next month. I've been feeling more and more broody again!

Catherine is into every too! If you take your eyes off her for a SECOND... Although sometimes she'll just quietly sit and play with something for a long time. I think it's just to put us off our guard, lol.
