Hi, Chuord! Your scan either just happened or is about to happen -- thinking of you and your amazing ripe, numerous follies that I'm sure are waiting.
Oxford -- I'm glad your rest time has refreshed you. This next IVF cycle is going to be so exciting! What a great chance you're going to have now that they know the possible cause of your difficulty. I'm watching you with much excitement and optimism.
Mares -- Big families are great. Crazy, but fun.
This is my last one; I don't think we could manage more unless I stopped working, and I enjoy my job (and right now we need the income). It feels like the right time for us to be finished. I'm really trying to stay present and really experience this last pregnancy, despite my impatience.
No labor, but the twinges are becoming more crampy at night, so I think my body is slowing moving in that direction. Maybe a few more days? We're taking this time now to spend time with the kids and each other. We took the boys to a movie yesterday, and went swimming last night. I had a nice brunch with DH yesterday, too. I'm feeling a bit stressed over work. There are some things I would like to get done before the baby is born, but I'm really struggling to have any motivation or focus to do it. I'm going to try to talk myself into completing some of the work tonight, but we'll see.
DH and I are both really looking forward to meeting our new little guy.
M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2000. DS #1 -- March 2001. DS #2 -- November 2002. (Ten year break!) DD -- October 2011. M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2013. Expecting #4 late July.
