ARGH....a break in the catching up to update the now!

I know that some of you already know, but I'll fill everyone else in as to why today was so important! I did not tell a lot of friends, mostly family, because i did not want to jinx myself, but I am a candidate to become a NATIONAL TRAINER for NILMDTS. It's a big honor, as I would be traveling to Littleton, CO to become certified and then I would come home and start setting up training sessions around this area, or wherever there would be a need in this part of the country. I would be training all new photographers to NILMDTS and other photographers who have yet been able to attend a training session. I know that there is no one in this area, or ANYWHERE close who does sessions and it's tough to just walk in the hospital the first time without knowing what is expected of you.
So i was told that we would know by today if we were selected or not, and i've waited all day to hear. My stomach is in knots and i my spirits were starting to sink with every hour that i heard nothing. I just got an email from HQ stating that they are still least one more day, if not two until i will know!!
I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but they have already called me twice with different questions as they are going through the deciding process!! If you all could just pray for me over the next 48 hours, i would really appreciate it. Not that i'm chosen, just for peace within me until i find out.
I've been having some physical issues going on as well, for weeks now, and everyday it's a struggle to just keep up with the kids. I'm having some complications associated with Depo, things i never thought would happen, and they are really taking their toll on me. The doctors are trying to figure out if there is anything they can do to help me out, but they are not sure if there is anything that be done to ease the complications. If anyone else has had issues with Depo, email me please, because this is all new to me.
On a separate note:
Fionn had his specialist come today to check on him, and he's doing great. He can already do everything that he is supposed to, and is ahead of the game in a couple of areas. He loves to stand already and has GREAT head control! Oh, and she weighed him, lol..I guessed he was somewhere around 13 pounds. He came in at 12 pounds 14 oz.!! Momma's big boy!!
Okay it's time for dinner so i better wrap this up!!
Until later...

Wow sounds like life has been crazy for you! About Depo..have you ever thought of an IUD I did that between my 2 kids because BC pills made me crazy..the IUD worked great with no problems for me. Just a suggestion..have a great weekend. Mr. Fionn is getting so big and cute..sister too! time flies and babies grow :)

This is my first time reading your blog but had to post when you asked about the depo.
I was on the depo shot for almost 8 years I had a lot of trouble with it at first I bled like crazy then quit completly for 4 years then had a period after all of that time and had terrible cramps and ended up anemic.They upped my dose then I went back to no periods.2 years after that I found out I was pregnant (yes pregnant while taking it) I had a shot in Feb and found out I was expecting 2 weeks after taking my last shot.My daughters are 18 and 11 we were not planning on another baby.I was put at high risk because of all of the complications that can happen to a depo baby.My son was born november 16 2006 he is healthy but when he was born had some breathing trouble.He was not planned but has made our family complete we could not imagine life without him.It was a very scary pregnancy there are so many risks we try not to think about the what ifs and just thank god everyday that we were blessed to have this little man in our lives.
My email is if you want to ask me anything about what I went through on the depo.I would not recommend that form of birth control to anyone.
