Hi everyone! We are doing great. The babies are 9 months and it's such a fun age. They're full of personality and totally different from one another. They are super mobile and I think they will be early walkers. Our new babysitter is great. They are STTN. We have been busy and stressed with other life things but overall everything is good.
QOTW: No garden right now but we are moving to the suburbs and I am determined to grow something!

Heeeeyyyyy all. Still lurking around. E is doing really well except she won't sleep in her own bed and it's been like 6weeks and we're all just at our wits end. I'm reading Ferber, but at 18 months STing just isn't the best option. Uggghhhh.....
I'm 11 weeks with #2 and really struggling physically. I've lost 8lbs from puking and I'm coming off a 3 day migraine in which I could only take Tylenol. Combined with some seriously work drama and everything is a little overwhelming right now.
QOTW: I don't, but MH grows some small veggies and a few plants in our yard.

Thank you for the check-in, @underdog25!
Missing you, 3T, and lurking as always. Rooting my very hardest for you
lemonliz, Fuck yeah to insurance!!!!!!!!!! lillee, Fuck you, Lupron. Learn to play well with others. amberr, I'm so sorry for everything. Hugs for what you're going through. babyhopes, I hope yesterday went beautifully! I shall cross every appendage I have for you during this TWW! heartpresidents, I'm so sorry for difficult anniversaries on difficult days. So many hugs. gratefulandthankful, YAS!! birch113, Excited to see you started estrace!! fikafairy67, So sorry to hear about your fender bender and your poor foot! Congrats on the weight loss--that's awesome! I'm sorry you have so much going on, and I hope that the time until September passes quickly for you. bonzo2012, Hoping you hear from the pharmacy soon! Plenty of time before the 25th though! Exciting! home2sara, So glad that your hysteroscopy went well, but I'm sorry that it brought questions. hoosiermama, I'm sorry for the uncertainty right now.
My little guy is almost 13 months old and starting to take 3 and 4 steps at a time these days (before gracefully faceplanting...) The other day at a picnic someone asked if he could have goldfish crackers and I said he wasn't chewing that well yet. He was like "Uh, speak for yourself, woman" and grabbed a fistful of someone else's goldfish crackers and scarfed them down So we've started letting him try more things! In other news, I'm looking forward to the school year wrapping up and staying home with MB for the summer!

Thanks for the check-in Underdog!
Emma is 9.75 months now. She has started "waving" (she holds her arm out and opens and closes her hand) and seems to be more vocal lately.
Unfortunately, we had a very long day last Saturday when Emma woke up at 12:30 am having difficulty breathing, crying, and barking like a seal. We ended up going to the ED where she was diagnosed with croup and got a dexamethasone shot and some nebulizer treatments. I had to work at the hospital from 7-3:30, so I was exhausted after working a full shift on 1.5 hours of sleep. Luckily Emma is doing much better now with just a runny nose.
QOTW: My DH has grown tomatoes in our garden. I plant flowers and do all the weeding but don't plant vegetables because I'm picky and don't like to eat many veggies.
I'm 28 weeks today, hello 3rd tri! Each week I'm gettingnmore uncomfortable and it's feeling more real now. I've been testing my blood sugar a few times a day to see if I have GD. Other than that nothing going on.
Qotw: nope. Don't have the motivation or the knowledge. Previous home owners built one but filled it with mulch so we'd have to start from scratch basically
I'm 17 weeks 3 days. Feeling pretty good overall. Next appointment is 2 weeks away.
QOTW: I haven't planted anything this year on our little patio. But when we did, we had soo many cherry tomatoes, so much basil, a few mini peppers, cilantro, parsley, and I think that's it. I wish I could find the motivation to plant something this year. The day is still young, right?!

Thanks for the check-in underdog!
Hope you're all doing well. I lurk here and there and am sending so many good thoughts.
The twins are 14 months and growing like weeds! They are moving up from the Infants classroom to the Toddlers classroom at daycare! They are starting to learn more words, which is super cute. And they're really starting to play together which just melts my heart.
Aiden's ears seem to be doing a bit better after his second tubes surgery, and we're all doing much better now that the terrible stomach bug seems to have left us all alone.
Mat is a busy month for us, so I'm looking forward to the first weekend in June when my parents are going to keep the kids. I may do absolutely nothing at all!
Hope you're all doing well. Love to all.
QOTW: I don't even have fake plants... because I'm sure I'd find a way to kill those. Plus, I'm not a fruits and veggies person.

Underdog25 - thanks for the check-in!
I have been lurking here and there but I am always rooting for you guys.
My little boy is 11 weeks already! He's been smiling for a few weeks now and is starting to reach for things! He is still going to PT for his torticollis and has made great progress with his range of motion on his neck.
I'm still dealing with anxiety here and there but it's getting better. I officially left my job 2 weeks ago and I am so happy to stay home with him. I am almost healed from delivery to start running again and I will be running a half marathon in the fall.
QOTW: condo living = no garden and 5 cats = no plants inside. I'm fine with that.
I'm 25 weeks now and really showing though my students at school still don't know. I have 3 weeks left of school and I'm so ready for the summer. I'm beat every day. Baby is kicking a lot and DH can feel him which is really neat. My parents are dying to feel him move around but I hate people touching my stomach.
QOTW: Yes I garden every year. I'm hoping to do it this year but I'm not sure how that's going to work. I always have an herb garden with basil, oregano, mint, thyme, rosemary, and parsley. I usually grow cucumbers, green beans, and tomatoes too. I've tried growing cabbage, peppers, and peas but it doesn't work too well so I'm sticking with the 3 veggies I know work.
Thanks @underdog25 for the check-in. Late as always here. E is 15.5 months and I'm loving this age. I actually flew solo with her to NC this weekend Fri-Sun for my brother's graduation and we survived! It was exhausting but I also enjoyed the alone time with her. It was fun to get her together with my friend's babies, two of which are also IVF babies.
My FET was a BFN so now waiting for my WTF appointment to see what the plan is next. That was our only frosty.
QOTW: I haven't done a garden in a couple of years. Theoretically I'd like to but I'm a bit too busy at the moment.
Hi ladies! I haven't been great at keeping up lately, but I'm always rooting for you and sending good vibes your way. AFM, M will be 10 months old on Monday. He's so much fun - and getting to be a little stinker. He's crawling and getting into everything. We think he's going to start walking very soon. My goal is to keep him exclusively breastfed until he's one, but I'm getting so sick of pumping (he had some issues early on, so I've been exclusively pumping since he was just a few weeks old). Plus, I still haven't gotten my period back, which is nice, but we'd like to start trying for a second soon.
QOTW: I suck at gardening, but DH loves it. He started plants from seeds in the winter (I was not thrilled to find a makeshift greenhouse in our guest bedroom). DH just planted them in the garden last weekend. I think he's doing tomatoes (love), cucumbers, zucchini and various other herbs.
jennykat, I didn't go on any BC after baby and my OB was supportive. I didn't have any complications during delivery and everything looked good at my 6-week check up, so DH and I figured that if we miraculously got KU when baby was still little, we'd be happy with it.

Thanks for the check in @underdog25!
ProfessorChaos Sending good vibes that your SCH clears up soon. babyhopes I am stalking you and wishing you so much luck this cycle! birch113 I had the same side effects with Estrace, fortunately they seemed to level off once my system got used to it. home2sara It sounds like you have a great doctor, FX for your next cycle! lemonliz i'm counting down the days until June 1 and you getting started again!
How far along are you? 12 weeks 5 days How are you feeling? Pretty good, hunger seems to be subsiding but I do get winded easily. Have any important dr. appts? NT scan was today. It was awesome to see the babe wigglin around. Unfortunately that also meant they had issues getting measurements so I ended up being there for an hour and a half.
