PW Preggies, Mommies, & TTC (October Updates!)

Hi my lovely ladies!!!!!!


Well I have a minute to myself and thought it was time to start the new monthly thread!  I hope all is well with my ladies, I can't wait to here the updates!  I know there are a lot of 'groups' now but this is a great place to touch base on our updates still!


Also: I was thinking if our mommies could put some of their "Mommy Advice" in that group since we have sooo many TTC'ers and Preggies it will be helpful!  There is soooo much to think & talk about as a mommy- it would be a great place for advice and support- for us all to touch base!  I know I could use some too lol  


:::HMM's Update:::



  • Lucas turned 2 months on Monday!  I still can't believe it! He's my little angel! Having a baby changed my world completely, and I truely love being a mom!  It has also been a change emotionally.  I know many say its the hormones- but it is a challenge either way.  So Im adjusting to the changes in work, marriage, friendships, etc. and Im not going to sugar coat it- sometimes this has been the hardest part- NOT THE CHILD lol This was a shock to me and also a learning experience.  I know I don't have time to be as active on here or ask for help- but if anyone can relate let me know!  I think once the baby is here its a whole new ball game- and the only girls I can relate to the most (or that understand me) are my fellow friends that have babies.  What can you do, I just take it one day at a time and so thankful at least I have my little guy- he's been amazing!

  • Lucas is not only smiling now, but "talking" lol I don't know about what but I love it!  He goes on and on and I just pretend I understand haha We just goooo and ahhh through the whole conversation. 

  • He is sleeping great and I love the progress- (The night feeding is now 4/5am) but Im still tired lol you'd think it help haha but nope- still tired! At least he sleeps in with me- I do love that!

  • Each week gets better and better- routine, development, sleep, eatting, the whole 9 yards.  (so for those preggies- just remember that haha)

  • Not loosing any weight- super bummed about this- now I must work for it haha Originally I dropped a bunch of weight (20 lbs) but then gained a few back!  I was sooo pissed haha.  So now I need to get with it and get the rest off.  I know it will help me feel better too- I got/am super bummed about my body- I feel warped after I had him.  Man having kids is such a catch 22 haha

  • I have still been updating our blog now and then if you want updates or pics when Im not one here: www.holymolymatrimony.com


Can't wait for the updates ladies!!! Lets hear them!!!

Thanks for updating us hmm! I can understand what you mean when you say that the only other people you can relate to are other new moms - my sister and sister-in-law saw a drop in friends without kids..it just difficult for them to be able to relate to those w/o kids.

oh i was JUST thinking about you today and wondering how mommyhood is going for you. I just about teared up reading what you said about relationships with everyone changing. STory of my life still to this day! None of our close friends have babies...so i feel really alone sometimes. Especially since I'm a stay at home mom. Its hard, and no one here can relate! Sometimes I feel really out of touch with the world. Its been hard for DH and I  at times...but also, makes us closer the other times..haha. I feel you on the body issues too. The twins pretty much took a "forever toll" on me. I cant help but hate it. DH says it doesnt bother him...but i cant help but be saddened by it at times...but that DOESNT mean I dont adore my boys...they are almost 20 months now...and I cant even begin to tell you how much FUN they are at this stage!


HUGS HMM...i totally, totally understand ya!!

YAY!!!!  So happy to hear how Lucas is growing! 

Not much new on our kinda TTC front, other than I got my PERIOD!  For most that wouldn't be a happy thing, but the Dr's said it could take up to 2 years, for it to come back after the Depo.  This took 2 months.  After not having cramps for the 8 yrs I was on the Depo, they knocked me on my a$$.  LOL.  Now we just hope that it comes regularly, then we can really start trying to TTC.  Until then, lets home Aunt Flo comes on time.  =)

HMM, I think of you ALLLL the time and wonder how you're doing.  I'm so glad to hear that things are going well.  Lucas is so precious!  His smile is infectous =D  I love baby talk...especially when they get really into it...so cute!  Are you back to work?  If you are, is it part-time?  Going back to work post baby has been a huge topic at our house lately.  We're still not TTC yet.  We're still planning for the "future."


Tiger...funny how something so dreadful could actually be a good thing!  Good luck hun :)

Not much excitement on my TTC journey as well.  I am one of the other stories after Depo.  It has been over a year and the only Aunt Flo that I had was doctor induced.  They thought that would kick-start it, but it has been three months since and no luck.  Seriously, if you are hoping to have kids within a few years after marriage, get off Depo now and switch to another method.  If I had really researched things, I never would have taken this route.


Like Tiger said, I NEVER thought I would actually WANT it to come!!

Pink - Aww.  =(  Such sad news!  Are they thinking about putting you back on BC to try and get one?  My Dr said that if I didn't get regular in 12 months, that would be the plan, to put me on a low dose of pills.

Wow, I had no idea your body takes so long to get back on track after Depo. I'll have to tell my friend about it for when she decides to start TTC.




There actually isn't a whole lot to report on my end. I'm 36 weeks/3 days and anxiously waiting for our little guy to get here. I'm gaining weight much more steadily now but feel like my stomach is just growing outward. I have 2 weeks of work left until I go on maternity leave, unless I go into labor earlier. I am planning to get my hospital bag packed this weekend in case he arrives early. I noticed we're a couple days away from a full moon and I don't want to tempt it. I used to get my period on a full moon. Must be my hippie blood. ;-D


Physically I've been feeling pretty good. I'm very thankful on how well my body is behaving itself with only minimal fatigue, back pain, hip pain and indigestion. I have been getting Fred Flinstone feet when the weather is warm or when I sit at my desk for too long.


Mentally I'm starting to feel anxious that we don't have enough time left to get the house in order before he gets here. I've been patiently waiting for DH to finish painting the nursery so I can finish putting it all together. It's all ready to go, just in pieces scattered throughout the house. Each once in a while I get a burst of nesting energy where I go on a cleaning frenzy. Of couse I get kind of bitchy when DH gets in my way. ;-)


Let's hear some more updates from fellow pregnant ladies! Good luck to everyone TTC this month!

That is exactly what they did for me.  They tried progesterone pills first.  It brought it back within ten days, but then I have been lasting over three months.  Today I started a low dose of BC pills in order to try to start the ovulation.  I hope it works!
