Hi Amand!!! Isn't it nice to not be worrying about how much your little one is nursing and if it is messing with your hormones or not? Our little miracle miss is almost 11 months old and although I have several patches of what seems like fertile CM all the time, no AF yet, and as far as I know, no O either. It is so freeing to just let her nurse when she wants to and not care about what it might be doing to my fertility. DH says we are done and I wish I felt so done too .....I thought I would after she was born and I did for about 20 minutes after she was born - and then I thought "oh gosh I need to do this all again one day!".....some days I am ready to move forward and sell all my baby stuff - most days not so much. Dh has not had the big snip yet and based on my fertility problems last time around, I am not worried - am turning 40 next week so think my body is done but you never know right?! The pull and pray has failed before lol :)
Your king size bed sounds lovely - we bought ours just before our #2 was born and it is a life/sleep saver!! Queen beds seem so tiny now.
Very glad you are all doing so well and enjoying your babies.
We are great too - Baby girl is almost 11 months old and still nursing nursing nursing although she is very into big girl food too - pretty much skipped purees and went right to the chewable stuff. She has 7 teeth already (!) and can free stand so walking must be close behind. I LOVE her so dearly - the miracle that she is still blow me away and the pain of struggling to get her reminds me of how very grateful I am that we were blessed with her. Our boys are wonderful too - DS#1 just turned 7 and is thriving in school and with all his sports he is into. DS#2 is 4 1/2 and blooming so wonderfully in school and socially. He is a funny little character. Both of them adore there sister and are so helpful with her - she thinks they are both awesome. So that's me :) Let's keep doing this so we can keep in touch!
Big hugs Jasmine

Good news foryou, i am glad to hear things are going well. My LO is now 13.5 months, which is amazing to me. It just flies by with number two. We are not ttc right now, which i find to be such a relief. I am just enjoying my two girls, which is cool bc M is beginning to wander around after her sister and has a few words, so things are really fun. Or really hard when they are both whining at me!! Life with DH is nice, without the stress of ttc, or being pregnant. That isnt something we have enjoyed in aBout three years! On a personal note, i have started working towards being a rugby referee, and phasing out of playing a bit. It is a hard road, but one i am enjoying. I juts hope i can learn all the laws and actually be a good ref! It is crazy how complex one silly game can be. DD is still nursing like a champ, ,and of course, not sleeping thru the night. We have an enormous, beautiful king sized bed now. We got it custom made and it is only 15 inches off the ground, so even at 13 months the baby can get on and off easily. It is a relief not to worry about her falling! Talia turned 4 and she is in and put of my room at nit as well. Someday i will get sleep!! Well, when that day comes, maybe it will be time for number three, ha!

My mommy intuition was right for the 3rd time on gender. I even had the tech just show me the picture and let me tell her at our anatomy (though our MFM had already made a guess at 12 weeks... it was an educated one!). We're not gonna share though :) We only find out because we have so many u/s there's no way to not know... but we let everyone else wonder. :)

Labs were ok... still puts me at a higher risk for pre-e again... hopefully not though! My bp is finally come back down to it's normal 11x/6x and hopefully it stays there. I didn't deal with bp issues at all with my first, and with my 2nd it wasn't until past 25weeks... so this is a lil' unnerving since with our 2nd we made it to full term with only 12 hours to spare! :/
