I'm feeling much better in terms of the cold I've had. I finally feel like I'm getting my energy back and actually made it to 10,000 steps today :/ I've been at about 5k every day for the last week.
I had a complete breakdown at my acupuncturist today. Some days just feel so hopeless: who am I kidding myself? I'm never going to get pregnant. Pigs will fly first. I went to see a new OB today, since my last was an idiot, to be completely frank. This one was nice, but not sure I'll be trusting my fertility to her. I'll be trusting my naturopath and acupuncturist on that front. The OB really urged me to take another 3-6 months to try naturally. She said we can go full-steam-ahead if I'm not pregnant by June. I appreciated that. She said she definitely thinks I can get pregnant naturally, I just need to give it time since I've only been ovulating regularly for 5 months. As far as she's concerned, I need another 7 of trying before there is any need to try anything more invasive. I guess that makes me happy...but no closer to being pregnant! Ugh.
My mom found out today that she is basically diabetic. That scares me, because I think I'm a ticking time bomb for diabetes....overweight, too many carbs, not active enough. Plus, what about gestational diabetes if I do get pregnant? I told her I'd follow a diabetic lifestyle with her, so I have some learning to do.
