Thanks Ladies, yes I am really proud of my girl. It is a great, positive outlet to channel all of that energy of hers! She has ADHD, and she used to not be able to sit still....and she had always been so bright but last year when standardized times tests came into play, especially in math, she was not on grade level. I was so used to her being above grade level. So we knew that she needed some help. So we started her on ADHD medication (controversial I know, and we struggled with it as well) but between the low dose medication and her focus on this sport that she absolutely loves, she has made A's in math and science...she has always been an extremely fluent reader so she reads on a 6th grade level but this has helped her self confidence so much. She would come home crying after failing the timed math tests (simple addition and subtraction but they had to finish 60 questions in 3 minutes! It would break her heart. Now she makes A's this year doing 100 multiplication facts in 5 min. So I really feel like the medicine helps her. Until she can learn the organization skills and study skills (and how to tube out distractions) that we learn as we get older. Then we can take her off the medication. Hopefully soon. She is already growing leaps and bounds in her maturity. So that will help.
She took ballet and dance for 3 years since she was 3 1/2, but was never totally passsionate about it. Once she went to a summer camp at this cheer/tumbling gym she was hooked. She absolutely loves it and never grows tired of it or wants to skip a day. She recently had strep and 102.5 fever and still went to her practices because she knew they had a competition that weekend and she didn't want to miss!! She is so dedicated. (I wanted her to stay home of course and not infect the other children, but it's the gym's policy that if you miss a practice the week before competition then you can't compete that weekend) craziness....a little extreme. But it is building character and perseverance in her. I am really pleased with it overall.
So enough about me, Chuord you have been on my mind and I have prayed that you will defy the odds and hold on to this pregnancy. If not, I think that conceiving and getting to implantation is a huge step. Chemical pregnancies are natures way of taking care of a mishap during the fertilization and chromosom formation stage (from what I understand) and that is just bad luck. So if that is the case then on to the next month and fingers crossed for you my dear!!
Take care everyone- Oxford big hugs to you and your hormones :-) I totally feel your pain. I know exactly how brutal that ride can be. But I know you'll find the courage to stick your finger back into that crazy light socket for another go!
