One Small Bit of Brightness

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

I had my 6-month check-up with my regular doctor yesterday, after not seeing him since my appointment back in May. He said I'm doing great and look much better that I did (although the scale is back to the same place now as it was then) and to keep doing what I'm doing.

Now just to get back into my size 14 pants...right now, all I care wear comfortably is maternity pants, and that's not putting me in a good place emotionally or mentally. Two more days until I see the OB/GYN for my post-op appointment. Then I can decide where to go from there.

Lost my Little Peanut

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I went to my 12-week prenatal check-up yesterday, thinking everything was going great, only to find out that I lost my little one when I had the flu a few weeks ago. Totally blindsided and completely devastated. I'm having surgery on Thursday.

Outta the Weight-Loss Arena...For Now

Thursday, August 23, 2012

But for the happiest of reasons - I'm pregnant! As of this morning, I'm only sitting at about 4.5lbs over my pre-vacation weight.

The house is caught up to the same point it was pre-vacation. Luckily we plan on co-sleeping for the first year, so we have about a year-and-a-half before we have to start trying to "make room" for more than diaper storage and clothes. Now to get super serious on straightening the finances out, so we can save that next tax return to cover my maternity leave!

New roof gets put on the house next week, along with some sheetrock repairs in the garage and a new attic access (complete with drop-down ladder, no we didn't have that...) getting installed. So, that gives hubby the month of September to reinsulate the attic and put down some plywood, so we can get the stuff out of the storage unit and back at home. Besides, I'll need those maternity clothes back! I should have at least a pair of jeans and pair of black pants that will work over the winter, plus all the tops.

    Congratulations! And good luck getting caught up on all that work. One of the biggest problems with vacation is getting back in to the normal swing of life.

30 weeks in - 7 months of progress

Thursday, August 02, 2012

As of this morning, I'm down a total of 37.6lbs. WOW, that's almost 9lbs from what I posted a month ago!!! Down to 195.0 from 232.6!

Right now, the house is still looking pretty good. I've been maintaining about the same level we got to for that July 4th party, which is good considering we've been gone almost every weekend the past month.

Finances are up, but we're getting ready to do a whole new roof on our house, and that's not cheap, even with the insurance helping. I have a goal for the end of the year, and right now it looks to be acheivable, but we'll see. Hoping to be down to just car & mortgage after tax return season (next spring).

Its official, we are finally TTC our second child. I took my first round of Clomid this week, and the "magic days" are while hubby and I will be on our anniversary trip in Hawaii (our son has Grandma out to visit and stay with him for 2 weeks). Hopefully, my post next month will be with some awesome news!

    Congrats on the achievements so far - it will make it all the more likely that that 2nd child will arrive (especially if you're doing it the healthy way...). What does TTC stand for? All I could think here was "Toronto Transit Commission?" but I assume it involves trying to get pregnant.
