Chugging Along- Penultimate Cycle Updates


Things are going along as expected. I take my last 2 pills tonight and then have my follicle check Sunday morning at 7 am.

Sunday is Mother's Day. Can't think of a better place to spend Mother's Day morning. As always, Thank goodness for bub. In all seriousness, that's a special hell- fertility clinic on Mother's Day.

Hub and I joined the town's fancy gym (2 salt water pools, 5 studios for classes, huge cardio and weight rooms, hot tub and sauna in the locker rooms etc). They have free childcare and awesome activities for bub. Hoping it's a kick start to better fitness for both of us. Likely, it's just going to go to waste and we'll need to remortgage our house. Or worse- we'll go to the guy, drop bub in the baby center- and go sit in the hot tub. (but soooooo nice, right?)

We also got Fitbits last week and are in fierce competition with each other and our friends. I've lost 2+ pounds. Hub is down 3+. I have 6 more to lose in 4 weeks to meet my goal. Feeling good about it, actually!

Acupuncture appointment set for Tuesday. That is my projected IUI day. I also set up a therapy appointment for tomorrow. We'll see how it goes. I found a hippy place, full of female mental health specialists- many of whom focus on IF. They pitch themselves as a wellness center- I like that. When scheduling the appointment I told them about Blue Sunday- there wouldn't be much worse than getting shamed/judged in therapy, right? Of course, I also told them about bub, about TTC again and likely hitting the end of the road.

  1. Oy... the timing of that falling on Sunday. Hope the follicle check goes well.

    I'm coveting a fitbit. I feel like it would get me up and moving if I saw how little I actually walk.

    1. I really recommend getting one. I am moving more, and like to compete (with myself and others which you can do in the app)

  2. I'm sorry you have to go to the clinic on Mother's Day. We have spent quite a few holidays at the clinic. Not fun! But hopefully the cycle works and then it will have a special significance.
    Yes, thank goodness for Bub! He is so sweet. Is he coming with you to the clinic? We brought Joseph with us. Good luck!
