So Frustrated - looks like we are out again for a couple of months, barring a miracle =(

DH got a tummy bug that is going around - complete with a fever of 101 for 3 days....he's never had a fever in the almost 9 years I've known him.  Maybe one or two of his swimmers are okay, but its not looking good with my narrow window and Mora delivering soon.....


Funny, when we first started talking about TTC we decided on March 2013 and then moved it up per my doctor's advice because of our ages....looks like March might be our first real opportunity after all =)


Baby Dust to you all! =)

I'm sorry, Claire. That's a bummer. But good luck with your baby puppies!

I am thinking that it is more that he had a fever for three days, rendering his swimmers useless that will be the problem. It takes approx. 2.5 months to manufacture a new "batch". So even if we manage the BDing, I'm not sure any of his boys are smart enough to figure out where they need to go anymore lol. I know it can happen, but 3 days is a long time for the temps to be raised on those guys =/

Raising a litter the way we do is ridiculously time consuming, plus the first couple of weeks I will be up every couple of hours to let Mora out and feed her (we can't just leave food out because my Lab eats anything that isn't nailed down - we tried it last time and he woke me up in a panic because he had gorged on her food and made himself sick in the process *sigh*). This might sound crazy, but I plan to have the puppies trained to sit, down, stand, come and walk on a leash before they go home - yes it can be done, but most people don't =). I take this very seriously =)

Start with Ian Dunbar's "Before You Get A Puppy" on dogstardaily.com it's a free e-book and something that all of my puppy owners get before I even take payment. =)

I know it's possible that his swimmers were NOT affected, but its not likely.....we will try!

Claire So Sorry!!


I'm so frustrated too. If I see another FB friend posting their big news that they're having a baby, I'm going to break my phone. I have baby envy. :'/

All the FB announcements are killing me, too.  In the space of 5 minutes I got a text and then saw an announcement for another friend having twins - I broke down crying right there =(


@Murph - we get comments all the time about how well behaved our dogs are too (my Lab can't help the counter surfing and trash digging, he lived on the street before I adopted him and some fears about being hungry just never go away).

I'm so sorry, Claire :-( FX for some miracle, super hero swimmers to survive! (And for a break in your schedule when the time is right!)

=( EWCM the last 3 days, DH is not fully recovered (lost 5 lbs when he was sick and that takes a toll) and tonight it looks like Mora may be going into labor....this month is just not in the cards

Baby Dust to everyone else!
