Thanks amber! Congratulations on making it all the way through your pregnancy. Bet you are getting very excited to meet your little one. Smile

Not a whole lot to report as of lately, I've had pretty violent dry heaves all day for the last couple of days. Thank goodness it's not constant and only happens once every couple hours. I had a couple days this week without any morning sickness and was kinda worried about that, not anymore.

Wow its been a while since my last post. I'm 22 weeks now!!!! Only 18 more weeks until we meet our little girl Smile DH is very excited about bringing her home and finally being able to hold her and talk to her and love her. I've read the book I got when I signed up for prenatal classes and it said both mom and dad can do skin on skin with baby and how it helps with bonding... told DH about it and he came out the next morning wearing his bath robe and said this where she'll be when I hold her right? He made a little spot wear she could curl up inside with him... he loves her already I know. I'm so excited to meet her I hope the rest of the 18 weeks goes by as fast as the first 22 have Wink

I can't believe Emma is 9 months old already! I'm starting to plan her first birthday and making invitations. She and I are attending the weekly playgroup in our small town where she and her friends will go to school! She has a couple friends already! 3 girls and a boy ha ha. They'll all be in the same grade in school...and what is really great is we all only live a few minutes away from each other! She is starting to try and stand on her own, lifting her hands from whatever surface is helping her keep her balance. She is amazing! I never knew I could love someone as whole heartedly as I love her!

That being said, we are preparing ourselves for our second ttc journey! I will be having my iud removed in less than a month, then we'll be patiently waiting for my cycle to return so we can actually get started with out bding lol!

HERE WE GO AGAIN! TTC#2!!!

I can't believe we are here already! I got my iud removed finally (it was stuck the first time I went to have it removed so I had to wait for an ultrasound to check the location of it and to make sure all was good) on Monday and have started drinking my fertilitea again. I'm still nursing my little Emma so we'll have to wait and see how long it takes for my cycle to return, but it is now official... we're trying again!

Hey ELH!
I"m glad to see that the IUD was successfully removed. It's exciting that you can officially TTC and that you're already starting the fertiltea! Hopefully your cycle begins to regulate itself out soon. Best of luck in your TTC journey!!!

Is CD 8 today... I'll be staying opk every other day on cycle day 10. It seems strange to be at this step already but I also have no idea what to expect for a cycle, this is my first one in 2 years lol. I've been bbt the last few mornings and Dh seems more interested in my chatting this time around ha ha.
Last night was the first night in a long time that Emma and I have slept through the night! I've read that natural child spacing works in such a way that the baby that is breast feeding will let your body know when they are ready for a sibling, I wonder if this is the signal.
I'm excited to be trying again, much more relaxed than last time but it is only cd8 of my first cycle lol.

Ah day 1 of the tww... have you ever heard of the cycle of hope and dispare? I first heard the term 2 years ago at the orientation meeting for our fertility clinic, they said that is what the 28 day cycle of a woman or couple that is ttc is like. This is something I forgot about until today when I charted my bbt and realized I had possibly ovulated yesterday. I'm now very hopeful that in 14 days or so I'll be using one of my newly purchased pregnancy tests!

Double lines! Oh wait, that was this mornings ovulation test lol. I've never seen a darker line on one! Basically, I've been chatting my bbt quite faithfully so I figured I hasn't actually ovulated a couple weeks ago when I got all excited with a couple faint lines on the opks. I went to Saskatchewan for the weekend and as I was driving back home I felt some slight cramping so I thought maybe I'm getting ready to ovulate. We bd last night and this afternoon, hopefully we have the energy to get one more in again tomorrow if the opk is still showing positive. Fingers crossed!!!
