Itabu --- you are very sweet... Im sure Lou appreciates the thoughts her way.. I need to get my butt off the Facebook and email her myself I guess.
Rings... Im not exactly sure how tall he is but I know he's right about 49-50 inches.. he's 7 1/2.. and weighed last night at 44 lbs. he varies between 42 and 46 depending on how many meals I make in a row that he particularly likes! grrr.. He may not actually be in the lower percentile because I havent had him graphed in years... is there a downloadable chart somewhere? you know the blue one where you put dots for the height and weight and see the curve of national averages or whatever..?
he has zero mental issues... no ADHD or anything like Tyler does... no delays at all, in fact he's on the upside of average like Kaytie. Yeah, I dont usually worry WHAT he eats as long as he's eating... if he wants to live on peanut butter and pizza thats fine with me... but when he sits down next to me and I can hear his stomach growling I cant convince him that he needs to eat. "I dont feel hungry"... but put any sort of candy, cookie or PICKLES in front of him and the child wont stop. LMAO.
I guess none of it is an actual "Concern" more as a curiosity about the correlation between habits/stature and IUGR diagnosis at birth.. he was 36 weeks 4 days.. 4.0 lbs and 16 in -- they said they sized him at a 33 weeker... which was interesting because Cade being born at 33 weeks (twin) was 4.6 and 16 in... So because of the Lovenox injections I took daily, the twins were not underweight for their gestation at all.. Very glad for all the science behind the studies for IUGR and prevention... but when I lost Ceegan (before the twins, before the diagnosis) he was 29 weeks and sized way smaller at like 23 weeks.. he was stillborn at 1 lb 12 oz and like 14 in I think, I cant remember for sure on length
SO ANYWAY... how are you doing ??? did you find a sitter? Hubby all recovered? Have you thought any more about what month for TTC? Still thinking Dec, Jan? Did all your test results come in?
Today Im 8 dpo... nothing to report really.. my headcold is almost gone but I still have an occasional cough and voice is on the mend but still very rough. I'd say maybe yesterday was an implantation dip but I'd be fooling myself... I have one of those every damn cycle - so obviously NOT.. or hasnt been... an implantation dip in the past. But then I wondered something.. all those really strong symptoms I was having in the 2ww in the past months... I wonder if I actually was pg but it couldnt implant.... there may be just loads of scar tissue in there. I wont dwell on it, but its possible. If it ended up next year with no conception, I'd go in for some tests ... not too worried about it yet though.
