Three and a half months

Jonah's crib arrived Thursday afternoon finally(!) We've been assembling it and have just the wheels to hammer in but the baby is sleeping in the chair so we're waiting to finish. I'm not sure how the crib will work into our routine but I will use it for naps during the day and start out some nights with him in it so he can get used to it. I was worried that the crib wasn't going to arrive until July as he hasn't ever had a chance to use his mobile (and they say to remove them around 5 months) Now we'll at least get some use from them.

We ended up with the Sorelle Rosa crib in Antique Black after shopping around some. I'm liking the look of the black; originally I had been thinking of dark brown but then my mother just about convinced me to do something more wood-y -- to match the other things in the room. Black looks just right to me though. Now I have to just get a mattress pad and some more sheets.

This week Jonah's been talking up a storm (who knows what he's saying most of the time), trying to scootch along on his belly, making faces (and teasing at that), sitting up supported more easily (yeah for head control) and gaining major hand control. This was him a couple of days ago playing with a toy, a toy that wouldn't interest him at all two weeks ago:

He sure is getting big!

I got my results from the endometrios test. He did two tests the first one was in the normal range and the second was abnormal. He called it the velcro test, my velcro molecules are abnormal. My eggs won't stick! I am so surprised because I have gotten pg twice in the past two years.Well I am grateful that I have two children- ages 19 & 12. We are considering adoption. We just thought we wanted to add to our family. Who thought it would be so hard!

Hi Deb,

Good to hear that you have some answers. Still, it sounds like something that could be fixed through diet and maybe herbs (based on my experience).

Consider this, the liver replaces all of its cells every 40 days or so (I might have the number of days wrong but you get the idea). So goes it as well with the rest of the cells in your body, they might just take a while to replace themselves. What you eat and drink, how you feel and behave, they all have influence on those subsequent generations of cells.

So, while things may be off at the moment, that doesn't mean it is a definative diagnosis. Also, your doctor doesn't have training (most likely) in any means to heal your body, to bring it back into balance. That's why you might want to consult with a practioner of alternative medicine -- which with your diagnosis seems to point more towards Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Good luck either way, because adoption can be a wonderful thing to persue as well. Just keep me posted on what you decide to do.
