New Phase and a condensed TTC history for IComLeavWe

Wow. For the past week, Hulk has been sleeping 8 - 9+ hours a night. It's freaking awesome. What is NOT awesome is that he now is totally up in the morning, but not really sure what he wants. I swear, this is his thought process:

Hi! Hi! *smiles*
Wait. What is that thing (staring at the window)?
Oh. Hi mom. *smiles*
Nice. I like being on Mom's shoulder (nuzzles in).
Wait! I don't want to be held. putmedownputmedonputmedown.
Phew. I really want to be put down. Laying on this play mat this is nice.
AUGH! I don't want to lay down!
NOOOOOOO not on the shoulder!!!! NOOOOOOOO!!! All you do is torture me!!!!!
Yes. That is nice. Bumbo seats are fun, thanks.
Oh. I'm getting sleeping.... so sleepy.
HOLD ME HOLD ME HOLD ME. (insert baby in sling)
*pause for 5 minutes of happy baby, sometimes maybe up to 15 minutes*
Mom. Mom. Mom. I'm hot. Take me out. OUT OUT OUT.
Wait. Yes. Yes, maybe the swing is ok.

Lather, rinse repeat. People who asked if I was sad about going back to work? Not so much right now, lol.

For those of you here from Icomleavwe - figured I'd give a quick condensed history of our TTC:
Spring 2005 - off the pill.
Spring 2006 - first visit to RE. Diagnosed with Unexplained Infertility. 3 cycles of clomid with IUI
Oct 06 - in between the clomid cycles and starting injectables, got pregnant. Turned out to be ectopic. Devestated.
Oct 06- Oct 07: Forced break because insurance now deems me fertile because of the ectopic pregnancy. Frustrating and annoying.
Sept 07 - change REs because mine is an asshole.
Nov 07, get pregnant on first IVF cycle, very low HCG, miscarriage in Dec.
March 08: Pregnant with Hulk after second IVF cycle!
Dec 08: Hulk enters the world.... life as we know it changes dramatically!

LOl @ "People who asked if I was sad about going back to work? Not so much right now, lol." Hulk is keeping you on your toes, that's for sure!

Lol! I loved the whole "stream of conciousness" thing. Thanks for making me giggle.

Musings from the Hulk...I love it.

Just stopping-in via ICLW to say "hey!" and congratulate you on the 8-9 hours of sleep. There is hope for uninterrupted sleep with a baby, huh? :)

So funny~I remember those days well! :)
Thanks for your comment!

Glad to hear you are getting some sleep. I'm still occasionally jealous of DH because he "gets" to go to work and hang out with adults all day.


Kristin said...

Oh man...I remember those types of mornings/days all too well. Loved the way you wrote it up...too funny.


Mrs. Gamgee said...

Thanks for the giggle this morning!

Time flies. It really does.

Dropping by for ICLW!!

I can't believe that bit about your insurance, what crap.

Also, I think my dog has just about the opposite thought process of Hulk. "Yep. This chair is nice. I'll stay here." "Yep... this chair is nice..." All say long.

Glad to hear Hulk is sleeping well, I'm so excited to have stories like that of my own.
