Monthly Archives: January 2016


I’m 7dpo(i think), and I feel out. I’m just ready for af to show, then I’ll call the RE. Once again I didn’t track or anything, just assumed that I would ovulate about the same time as last month, so we bd’d accordingly.



I am in the 2ww. I’m guessing I ovulated yesterday(just a guess)


I feel like we covered our bases pretty well. And now af is due for me on January 20th, and if she shows, I’ll call my RE to get started on a treatment cycle. I’m hoping she’ll let us jump right back in with clomid and an IUI, but we shall see. Anyone have input as to what happened when you went to see your RE ttc#2?

12 month stats

Calvin decided to not grow(height) from 6-9 months. Both times he was 28 inches, and the doctor double checked both times. So I was a bit nervous about this growth. Not that I thought he wasn’t, but it is easy to get caught up on percentiles. So at 6 months he was 98%, 9 months, he was 25%. He is now 30.25 inches, and 65% so we’re growing again! And weight! Man my boy is a chunk. At 9 months he was in the low 20%(which is heavy for him, he had consistently been in the high teens, at 7 months for a sick visit he had dropped to the low teens.) but he is 22lbs 6 oz, 66%. So who knows!

He’s doing great. He’s been walking for 3 weeks, and he talks so much. Not english yet, but he’s definitely telling us something.

Month So far


I’m due to ovulate today or tomorrow, I think. Once again, not doing much in terms of tracking, just an average based on what I typically do, ya know, post partum. So it’s looking like I’ll call my fertility specialist around the 20th if af shows and schedule a medicated cycle. I’m actually quite excited about it. I know full well, I could get knocked up this month, but I feel like we in good hands when it come to my RE.

In other news, Calvin turned one. It happened. We had a party, it was nice, but it was sad. Sad because it was just a reminder that my brother and his family aren’t here. My Niece’s birthday was Friday, and my brother’s birthday Sunday.

Also, Calvin had his first fever Saturday, and we were supposed to have a party that night, but we had to cancel. Poor boy. I think he hadn’t been feeling well for a a bit before hand, because Friday he just sat in my lap for 45 minutes. Which never happens. And he had been super fussy at nap and bed time. Usually he’ll fuss for 30 seconds to see if we’ll come back in immediately, but Friday he fussed about about 15 minutes, so I went in and held him, and he feel right asleep. Saturday he napped in my arms. Saturday night we brought him into our bed and put on Mulan, and he loved it. He watched some, but he loved being in our bed. We did it again last night with Dumbo, and once again he loved it. He’s so funny. We’re planning on having a slumber party with Calvin where he gets to sleep with us here in the next month. It was supposed to be this weekend, but I wasn’t feeling super great.

We have Calvin’s 12 month appt this morning, and I’ve gotta get him going. I’ll post updates.
