Alix- Congrats on the baby boy! How exciting!
AFM- I called my doctor today because I was a little freaked out over reading some stuff on the internet about cysts and what not from clomid. She said that it COULD be a cyst but my pain sounds more like I released multiple eggs. She did an ultrasound and I DEFINATELY ovulated. She said If I am pregnant I'd be conceiving about right now. So 2 weeks pregnant lol...BUT we won;t know for a couple weeks. I'm going in for a blood test on 11/16. Hoping for BFP!

Alix: bwahaha..reminds me of layla!! Everytime she had an u/s, she would turn around and show her buttcheeks. DH was like "that sight looks pretty familiar!" and about that time, you saw she was a girl..lol. Made it difficult on the second time around to tell for sure, but we managed to get it!
Congrats on the boy!!! so happy for you, just wanted to say that before i go clean the living room that my little tornado destroyed this morning.

Alex - Fingers Crossed for you for that BFP!
Alix - Congrats on the baby boy!! <3 Boys are so much fun! I have 2 of them!! <3
AFM - I will be 4 weeks officially tomorrow. Yesterday I made my first OB appt but it isn't until November 29th. Which happens to be the day before we leave for our surprise trip to Disney. We are surprising our oldest (he will be 5 December 12) with a trip to Disney. It will also be my youngest's son's first time there. I was pregnant with him the last time we went to Disney May 2011. I am super excited b/c I am a Disney fanatic! And it's so hard to keep a secret!!! We got our magicbands yesterday in the mail and got our luggage tags last week. I have everything hidden in my closet!!! And we plan on doing a scavenger hunt for my oldest to find the clues and ultimately find a big treasure chest DH and I built out of cardboard boxes and spraypainted. We will be down in Disney for almost 2 weeks so that means I have to wait even longer to get my ultrasound done. Oh phoeey! The good thing is my DH is an ultrasound tech so if we really wanted to take a peek he can scan me. Counting down the days!!!!!!!

Faith- Yay! Ooh and a suprise Disney trip to boot! How fun! It's neat your DH is a US tech and you can sneak a peek. I'm a L&D nurse and I know my coworkers sneak peaks during their pregnancies. It's pretty cool to be able to do that. Hope you have a great vacation 2 weeks is a good chunk of time!
Alix- You picked out the name already, Bryce? Cute! I bet it's nice to be able to call him by name.
Isra- For sure it's been a long time! We've missed you! Sorry to hear that you're sick. That's not good. Hope you can find some time to rest and get better. AF needs to stay away so you can get that BFP!

Life has been so incredibly busy! I am trying to read up!
Tara: Good Luck this month! I can't wait to hear how the IVF goes! Praying for you!
Isra: Oh I hope its a BFP for you!
Amy: How are you? How is little miss doing?
Bre: I hope all is well! My classes are kicking my butt this semester! It really makes me want to take a semester off to just take a break--but I seriously just want to be DONE! I can't believe little miss is almost a year old already!
Alix: YAH a baby boy!! How incredibly exciting!!! I absolutely love my boys and I have to tell you--they have some ADORABLE boy clothes out there!!
I apologize if I forgot anyone! I hope everyone is doing well!
AFM--Life has been absolutely insane. Between my classroom being insane, my 2nd job starting back up again, my grad school work, the boys, Jordyn, the house, and everything else I just barely feel like I am staying above water! My grandma also passed away the end of October So we were out of town for 4 days for that--and then last weekend we were out of town for our annual Hot Chocolate Race in Chicago! This weekend we stayed home and it felt SOO good! Oh ya---and we are currently fostering 2 basset hound brothers!! We love them--and they are doing a great job at our house!
Jordyn is 4 months old already! It's absolutely INSANE! She is such a fabulous baby and is happy and calm most of the time! She definitely has a temper if you don't do what she wants WHEN she wants you to...but she is such a beautiful blessing to our family!
Here she is:
