Thank you everyone for the warm welcomes!!! DH said he has a good feeling about this month so we shall see!!
Nursetara - I hope this month is your month with the Clomid! I will KMFC for you!!! Thank you so much for the welcome wishes! You ladies are so welcoming!!!
Brie - Keep your head up!!! How much longer do you have until your classes are over? Is there any family or friends nearby that could give you a hand during this time so you can get your studying and homework done? It's a shame that he is this way...I hope things get better for you!!! And the 14th is fine for my test date. I actually think I may have ovulated on the 2nd so it could even be as far out as the 16th if you want to change it to that. Either way I will definitely keep you guys posted and KMFC for that BFP!!
Alix - Make sure you follow up on your complaint from whoever said they would keep you in the loop. Keep on them and make sure appropriate actions are taken. The comment he made was very inappropriate...joking or not....it is just something that shouldn't be said. And I definitely would also feel weird about also working with him again. Follow your gut instincts!!!

Alix: OMG! How flipping insane!! I wish I was there! I know violence isnt the answer, but I'd sure like to kick him in his kahonas and see if it "really kills his babies!" little freaking ba....... OMG. Girl, I dont know how your DH didnt just go up there and choke his brain cells out..obviously that idiot is lacking some so it probably wouldnt have hurt him. That just makes me so freaking mad! Maybe you and DH can sit down and work the financials and maybe you can afford to quit for a little bit and then take a few weeks to find another job? please do! i am now worried about you!!
Faith: I put the 14th up for now, and welcome! These ladies are amazing! Welcome aboard! I have 2 more semesters after this one, but this one just started..so more like 3.
Tara: KMFC for you!
afm- not much to report other than school is crazy, as usual. DH's coworker and friend's wife just found out she is pregnant with baby number 5. Shes insane.. she doesnt even look after the 4 they have. She has been trying to trap her husband for 3 months into getting her pregnant.. if its even his..which is a completely different story lol. However, she wants another one because...wait for it... "Brie gets to stay home all day with her baby so I should too!"... wow. Seriously? Yes. But Chris works 60+ hours a week, and her husband works more (often 7 days, and upwards to 16 hours a day at times!) to struggle to support his family. She doesnt want to work at all, and he keeps pushing her to work more. She doesnt watch her kids now and pushes them outside and locks the door so she can read. I go to school and am very involved with Layla. I feel guilty for staying home because Chris has to work so hard for us and had to drop out of school. I just dont get it, and I dont get wanting to bring another baby into the world all because you are jealous of me (and her words here, not mine.). I feel bad for that poor baby, the enviornment he/she will be born into is sickening.. roaches from floor to ceiling..pots and pans filled with mold because she wont wash them.. making the dog eat the kids poop accidents so she doesnt have to clean it. Oh and she is now "anti vaccine" and home birth. I had to explain to her why vaccines were important.. like prevents pandemics and epidemics.. duh. Her 4 are always sick, then in the emergency room for various things running across a hot stove, stabbing themselves, etc. Crazy.. jealousy is not a reason to bring a baby into this world esepcially when you are struggling to take care of what you have. But i guess not everyone sees reason the way I do.
On the upside, DH told me how proud of me he is and that I make him so proud by how far ive gone in school and how good I am at it. That doesnt happen often (not that hes a dingaling always..he just isnt very good at sharing his emotions..he just expects me to know lol.) so I was completely taken by surprise. :

Alix- I agree that you should make sure they follow through!
Brie- Yikes, that is frightening. That is grounds for CPS. Those children don't sound like they have a stable living environment. How increadibly sad. My DH isn't overly emotional either, so I agree it means so much more when they share their feelings like that.
09-04-2013 02:43 PM
Tara: It certainly does.. it means more than anything! I remember when we first met and he always worried about "being good enough" for me. he is perfect for me.. I just wish that he was a little more emotional. lol but at the same time, it means so much more because i know he really feels it and isnt just saying it to make me feel better.
Alix: how did today go?

Alix: Im so glad they are moving you hun! It makes me feel better! Where do grown women get the idea to act like they are 12 years old? Name calling? Really? Im sure she probably has her own self issues..but geez. You're pregnant. Not fat. You have the paitence of a saint, my dear. Big ((HUGS)) to you.
Nicole: please let us know you are ok!! We havent heard anything for awhile, just know we are still thinking of you!
Isra: How about you? have things improved with the whole moving thing?
Tara: When is your next RE appt at the new place again? I want to say Oct. 9..but cant remember. I hope you wont need it! Do you have a test date in mind yet?
afm- DH and I were talking about maybe having another after I graduate in July. I told him I was open to the idea, BUT changes will have to be made this time around..and that I am going to use the pill until then (when i stop BF'ing.) . I told him the closer we get to July, we can have another discussion about how we feel on the subject then, especially since we both go through the "No Layla being an "only child" is fine" constantly, he says he would love another, just not sure we could afford that and I feel the same way, on top of worrying how i would deal with two..even though school would be finished. I always thought I'd be fine with just one (and 90% of the time I completely am!) but lately I've gotten a few more neighbors in the building next to me who have a 8 month old girl who layla loves to play with. She gets so excited over other children anywhere we go, I feel like if i dont have one more she's missing out.. but at the same time, I totally love just worrying about HER. Just too many things to discuss, finances, etc to consider before we plunge into any decisions. I know that doesnt sound real fun when you consider a baby, but heck, I like to be over prepared, than underprepared and I want to make sure we CAN afford it. I dont want the state and taxpayers to be paying for my child and children. I very firmly believe that if you can't afford all the aspects of children (medical, financial, etc) you definitely do not need to be having them. Like I said, I'd rather be overprepared. lol.

Alix- I'm glad you are getting moved early. Hopefully a new setting will be better. That souns like some major workplace bullying to me. I can only think that your doc was left speechless. It's hard to wrap your head around people thinking it's acceptable to behave that way. I hope you can believe in yourself and stand up for you. It's not okay in any circumstance to treat someone that way. Glad

Brie- Yep, October 9th it is. I haven't decided on a test date for sure yet, Think I'm just going to see how thigns go. I think you have a good plan to reevaluate the baby #2 situtation when the time comes. I think we share the same idea on the responsibility of raising a child. Wish more people took it seriously.
AFM- DH and I are in the trying phase. I'm done with the clomid and just kinda going with the flow. Not a whole lot new.
