32 Weeks and Counting...
Okay, so almost 32...going off the date the doctor originally gave me week 32 officially starts Monday. Anyhow...I'm still hanging in there! It's awesome. I'm proving that short, pudgy little fertility doctor I spent thousands of dollars on 2... Read more
So, I'm really a giant ball of anxiety lately. I've been trying to busy myself and keep my mind occupied otherwise I'll fret myself senseless.
I was weaned off progesterone at 16 weeks and I'm 18w3days today. The Dr. hasn't bothered to ... Read more
The weather took a turn back to winter so we're snowed in. Well, the snow isn't deep but it's 11 degrees with a 10 mph wind...that equals me being snowed in.
I have been struggling lately to get in much movement let alone any cardio bein... Read more
Energy...I haz sum...
I'm glad to have it returning! While my progesterone still makes me feel tired it's been decreased from 400mg to 200mg and I seem to have past the "feel like complete poo" stage and progressed to "only feeling like poo once a week or so" stage.... Read more
Now leaving the first trimester!
A miracle! Nine years later, 3 "losses" (failed to grow past a yolk sac), 200 pounds down from my weight in 2005, lots of hard work, pain, emotions, and progress...here it... Read more
It's been a busy last month. I got the insane idea to remodel my kitchen. Aside from the paint, paint brushes, and vinyl tiles we bought, all the wood was found for free and ta-da brand "new" kitchen for around $60.
Today is supposed to ... Read more
I've come down with a serious case of the lazies. It's lasted 3 days now and coincided with a case of the moodies. But, we are still waiting for the results of the two week wait...'nuff said about that.
Friday stressed me out and I was go... Read more
Rain, rain and more rain! But, I did manage to get in about 25 minutes of walking during a brief sunny break in the rain. I didn't get to run like I wanted too but, hey, anything is better than nothing.
We carved up the pumpkin tonight. ... Read more
I have been missing from Spark. I have still been tracking food consistently but, avoiding the social aspects...that socialization is pretty darn important though. I am trying to get myself back into things and crawl out of my hermit hidey-hol... Read more
Today should be a fairly good day. I will hopefully get my blocked ear taken care of (it will be nice to hear again), I get to go food shopping, and we're getting a new kitten.
I'm armed with my Price Match list, a healthier list of snack ... Read more
Not all calories are equal...
Just because you have 300 spare calories and you can eat a piece of cake does not mean you should eat the cake. If I sub out a meal just so I can have a Biggie fry for lunch I am not doing my body any favors. I've been playing balance the bad ... Read more
The Penny Perplexion
The weather today is fantastic! It's cloudy with a light breeze and it's about 68 degrees...perfect walking weather. So, I laced up my shoes and decided despite my already busy morning there is no reason I can't get my butt in gear and try to ... Read more
Okay, so my eating efforts have been pretty half hearted this week...I'm well aware of me slipping up in that department. But, I'm seeing the numbers of how slacking I am in the exercise area also.
My Dad offered to buy me the FitBit Flex ... Read more
My trip to the dentist today was actually enjoyable. Well, the dental work itself wasn't but, the dentist is so nice and polite. She stopped often to ask if I was okay or needed anything. She shared her story about her miscarriages and having... Read more
