YAY for week 5!

Alright, weighed in this morning after my walk and am down another .8 lbs, for a grand total of 9.4 lbs! Only .6 lbs to 10 total! Rock on! Passed my 5%! YAY!

Then headed to the doc's for my annual (gyn was earlier in the month, this is my general practictioner) and got a clean bill of health from her. Just to keep trying for baby and keep working out and losing weight! I was down from their records last year, but only by about 1.5 lbs, so that tells you I was gaining this year instead of losing! That has turned around now!

No real other excitement. Walk this morning was good. Didn't take Sierra because DH was worried about her limp, but she isn't anymore. So maybe will walk again on Thurs. Pedi with a friend and her daughter (3) on Fri, daughter's first pedi...will be fun! Then prep for the party. Will be a small affair this year, oh well...works for me! Off to study now but wanted to make sure I blogged about weightloss since this week I didn't think there would be any, but there was! YAY ME!

Oh, on a weird note...I have been having random dreams (never dream) the last 5 nights. And I have painted my nails 5 times...trying to be cute, but they end up coming out like crap. Hopefully what I did now will stay. Very indecisive lately. ODD!

Interesting couple of days

So it was an interesting weekend to say the least...

Saturday: ran Sierra (eldest pup) to the vet to weigh her (they had put her on a diet - like Mama like Pup) and she is down 4 lbs! Good girl! Also wanted them to look at her right front paw as she has been limping - poor baby! Seems okay, just need to watch her and make sure it isn't Valley Fever (HEAVEN FORBID!). Then dropped her at home, and went to Dream Dinners with Mom (you choose from their menu and they prep (read buy and cut) the food, then you go in and prepare your dinners using their recipies, then take them home and freeze until you are ready to use them!) Love it and I can even tell DH to cook some nights! Home again to put them in the freezer and then waste some time until we left for dinner with friends, so I worked on my pet project to get speedhumps in our neighborhood - have to get 60% of the affected neighbors to agree, no easy task. So I was writing letters to out-of-state owners pleading for them to sign petitions. We'll see if it works! Then, went to Fuddruckers to meet friends and have yummy food (I had saved up Points and looked up values online, so I splurged and had a turkey burger, fries, cheese sauce and a shake - well, half a shake, I was full!) After dinner we hit Golf n' Stuff for mini-golf, something we all agreed we hadn't done since high school but it was fun, even though I racked up the most points (read: lost!). And got eaten alive by mosquitos! Killin' me today! Home fairly early and relaxing while DH prepped the quad to go out with his buddy the next day.

Sunday: up by 6:45 am to head to the pool to swim laps with my dad, my team and my coach. Then off to breakfast with Dad as is tradition now-a-days. After breakfast, Dad left and I met up with Mom at the Farmer's Market to look at produce. Found tamales and Green Chile Stew, and jerky for DH. YUMMY! Then headed to Ulta to waste time and look at make-up, where they ended up doing my make-up and of course I found lots of goodies (BIG SALE!). Finally home to relax - painted my nails (twice and will probably do it again tonight, just don't like how they came out. I was experimenting with colors for french, and it's not my best work) and watched Lucky You (Drew Barrymore and Eric Bana - great romantic comedy). That's when the phone rang...(dun, dun, DUUNNN!)it was Mom and it was business that I shouldn't discuss, but let's just say what she said was a shocker and upset me. I'll leave it at that. DH came home around 4 pm, red as a lobster! He had neglected to put sunscreen on thinking that he would be okay under the shade and his helmet (and you ask how long he has lived in AZ?). Well he paid for it last night and today. I'm sure he was sore when he got up this morning, poor guy!

Now today: Up at 5:45 am (as hard as it was!) and off to el gym. Actually called a friend on the way to the gym (she was leaving for 2 week adventure in Europe - lucky girl - and wanted to wish her well and catch up a bit since we can't for two weeks - don't know what I will do without her! We had a nice chat and right about now she should be over the Atlantic on her way to Paris, then onto Prague!! I asked to go in her suitcase, but even with my weighloss I wouldn't have fit!) Anyway, tried to work off some of my anger from the phone call last night...not at Mom, but the situation she had presented to me. Done (and I mean DONE - so tired from the weights and lunges - have I said I HATE lunges? I do!) and off to the showers and to get dressed (found a zit, which doesn't happen to my face and could be a pregancy symptom, but won't know until Fri), then into the office. I had to will myself to put a smile on my face for the ladies (in light of the situation at hand) and managed to get through the day but it was a long one. Had a headache since about 1:30 pm and am so ready for dinner of Fish Tacos!

So, now you are caught up and I am done rambling. Keep us in your prayers all week please...Fri is the big day! Then July 4th party on Sat, so we will either be celebrating with no alcohol for me or commisserating with lots of alcohol for me! I vote for the first one! Happy week all!

I'm not a fan of waiting!

Why does this take so long? I know there is a lot going on in my body right now, but seriously this 2ww crap is not my favorite thing! Plus semen takes 3 months (!) to develop! So changes we make now, won't show up for 3 months! YOWZA! This waiting stuff SUX! But what else can I do except take care of myself and pray. I've told a couple people about the dentist situation and they are supportive, but the online posts are not so happy. So we just continue to pray and pray and pray and pray and pray and pray and pray and pray.....

On another note, I'm watching what I am eating and don't get me wrong I am very happy with my 8.6 lb lost over the past month, BUT...my husband has cut his beer drinking since last Tuesday, and he has lost 13 lbs! 13 lbs in a week! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not fair! That is just wrong. Plus, he isn't a big guy to begin with so I don't know where it is coming from! Last night when we were talking about it, he was telling me that I should do his diet...which on Friday entails eating A PIZZA for lunch! You know I would weigh double what I do now if I did that! Plus he basically works out 8-10 hours a day...don't have that ability either. My butt gets a workout (from sitting on it all day) but that is about it! Which is why I work out at least 5 days a week and hard then!

Okay, enough rant...just pray for us please. I so want this to be this month!

Who knew the dentist could be so exciting?!

I've been up since about 5:15 this morning. I had to get to the gym and then to the dentist at 7:50 am. Got there and seems my gums are a little more sensitive than usual. Need to floss, yada yada. She asked if I was on any hormones...didn't know why. Told her about the Prometrium, but didn't think that was a hormone. So as she is finishing up, she reiterates, "You were jumpier today than most patients and your gums were bleeding, are you sure you aren't on hormones?" I said I was 85% positive and asked why. She said, "When your hormones go up, your gums become more tender and bleed more." I asked if that could be related to pregnancy as we have been trying and her face lit up. "Absolutely! There is even a medical condition called Pregnancy Gingivitus because people stop flossing because their gums are so tender." I told her we didn't know if we were, but it was possible.

You know that I flew out of that office to call Dr. H (our RE) and was told Prometrium is NOT hormones! So I am truely hoping that this is the month. Tried to call DH but he didn't answer, so called Talia to relay the news (she is always so supportive) and almost brought her to tears on the phone with excitement! So anyone out there, please pray for us for the next 2 weeks! This may be it! I'm trying not to get too excited, but this feels like sign #2 (first one being Acupuncture on Mon's experience!). Cross those fingers folks! Thanks!

Weigh - in

Another 3.4 lbs gone! YAY! That not only means that I lost last week, like I thought I did even though Tuesday was a fluke, but I lost .4 more than that! So we are still on a great track! I am down a total of 8.6 lbs! YAY!

Changes and Promises

So Acu switched to today (instead of Thursday) because Debi is going out of town for 2 weeks and I didn't want to miss out on a full week. I've felt really different for a couple days now. Not sick, not tired, just (for lack of a better word) enlightened. I hope it is what I want it to be, but not sure until July 3rd. So after Debi put all the needles into the points she wanted to, she always dims the lights and leaves the room for 15-20 minutes. During that time I do different things - take a little nap, think about what to pick up at the grocery store, talk to God or my un-born baby to come, etc. Today was the last and it literally gave me chills. I started making promises and hoping that that would help the baby "adhere" to my uteran wall. So here is the list I started with. Don't know if this will come out as poetic or not, but here are my promises. I repeated many of them over and over again, almost bringing myself to tears and will probably have to add to this list because I am sure I forgot a lot.

Promises to my future child
I will provide you with warmth and comfort, in my belly and for the rest of your life.
I will do everything in my power to keep you healthy and help you grow to the best person you can be.
I will love you like no other human on Earth has been loved.
I will keep you safe while you are growing in my body and as much as I can when you are out.
I will let you have your space and learn your own lessons, while protecting you from harms I know exist.
I will do whatever the doctors tell me to do to keep you healthy always.
No matter how imperfect you are, you will always be perfect to me.
My body is ready for you. I am ready to carry you. Your Daddy, Grandparents and "Aunts" and "Uncles" are ready to meet you.
Now is the time, I can feel it. Maybe this month isn't the time, but I am healthier, happier and ready to receive your heart, to add to the soul I already carry.
I promise to hold you whenever you need holding, and let you go when the time is right.
I promise to listen to what you tell me, to what God tells me and to listen to my heart.
I will never give up on you, no matter what the situation.
I promise to show you right from wrong, good from bad, and let you make mistakes.
I will always be thankful for the gift you have given me, your life.
Now is the time, angel baby, now is the time.
We are ready, we are so ready! Please join us!

That's all I can remember right now, and it didn't come out poetic at all. But this is what I meditated during Acu today. Now we just wait until July 3rd. Pray for us!

Oh, before I forget! Jason got a kind of promotion today. He is now in charge of used cars and customer cars, so hopefully will get more hours which mean bigger pay checks! Always a plus! And his boss went over the other boss' head to make sure Jason got the job and not anyone else! YAY! Finally something good happens at his work! It is about damn time! He deserves to be treated so much better, maybe this is the start of new things for us all! Cross fingers if they aren't already!

Two week wait

Well, this cycle is officially out of my hands. The OV watch read NF (Not Fertile) this morning, so now we just have to wait for the next 15 or so days. I started my Prometrium (to thicken the lining of my uterus) Friday, and have to take that for 15 days.

I will say that we gave this month a valiant effort. We BD'd every other day during the time we should have. I didn't drink after we started BDing and Jason stopped so his boys can recharge hopefully for next weekend. He has stopped completely during the week and only 2 on Fri and Sat. His choice, not mine! But great choice I think!

Yesterday was a very nice day. Slept in a bit then went to the JCC pool with Talia and the kids (Ava and Anthony - aka "the bean"). We tooled around in the pool a bit and to me there is nothing better than a child clinging to me for dear life. Got a little cold in the water for the kids, so we went to the water park at the J and Ava had the greatest time going down the water slide - took a bit to get her going, but then she must have done it 80 times! Lunch at Subway and then out to Talia's house for naps and some chat time. Talia is one of my favorite people, so that is awesome! She is also one of my biggest supporters! And when I was trying to check email on my computer while she put the kiddies down, there was the blog address, so I know she is reading my blog, which is always nice to see! Then came home (didn't get lost amazingly enough) and went to dinner with DH and my parents for Father's Day at Rosa's. If you live in Tucson and haven't been to Rosa's, you are missing out! Then home to watch The Assination of Jesse James - I don't recommend it. It was very slow and a downer. We didn't even finish it, too tired. DH had a great day too, he finally got his quad running! YAY Jason!

Today went swimming with Dad at 7:30 am. Coach was gone, so we ran practice ourselves. Got out and took him to breakfast at Denny's for Father's Day. Very yummy! Also sent him home with a piece of Coconut Cream Pie - his favorite! Thanks for being such a great dad Daddy! And a big teddy bear! Love you!

Took a nap when I got home and paid bills. Now off for a little cleaning and maybe watch a chick flick before Jason gets home from his ride on the now-running quad! Later skaters!

OV day #2

So the watch has been working, for the most part. Still needs it 90-minute bath every night to get it to read, but I am thankful it is working and telling me I am ovulating or whatever. I thought I was over my allergy to metals that aren't true gold, but the OV watch shows me I am not. This morning, I noticed a small rash on my wrist where the one piece of metal rubs. Oh well, body doesn't change that much after all.

We have tried to BD every-other night and then I talked to a friend who persuaded me to talk to our doc who said try for every night to every other night! YOWZA! That is a lot of BDing! I think our last night is tonight, but will see tomorrow...but one more for the road! Then I start my pills again and we wait 2 weeks for the results. If it doesn't happen this month, we move to next month and hope that DH's motility ups.

BTW...DH hasn't had a beer since Tuesday...I realize that is only 2 days, but he has had a beer at least every evening since we have been together (7 years) with the exception of a week or two while we lived in CO to see how it would change his weight (he lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks - talk about diet! No fair!). I'm very proud of him and glad he came to this decision all on his own. Means a lot to me. Hopefully my losing weight will help my side of the equation. (Also, I know I didn't lose on Tues at WW, but I weighed Wed morning just to see if things were crazy and the scale was down 3 lbs! So maybe Tuesday was a fluke! I had emailed my trainer, and my BFF to ask for their advice, and it was the same...to keep doing the same thing I am.) Most of all, I feel better. I have been wearing new clothes all week and I feel great in them! YAY me!

Tuesday, June 16, 2009


Okay, 3rd post of the day, I know...It's been an interesting day!

Anyway, Jason came home from work and didn't have a single beer! We are starting a good path!

Now off to "bed".

Doctor's Orders

Talked to the RE this morning about Jason's test results. Questions and Answers were as follows:

Q: Last test motility was 80, now it is 43, what could have caused that?
A: Don't know, so many factors. Advice is to cut down on alcohol and hot tubbing (10 mins if hot tub is 100 degrees), stress if possible. Add in exercise, a walk in the evenings would help lower stress and increase testosterone. (I had read that caffeine helps motility and doc said yes, but hinders other things, so don't load up.)

Q: Are there any meds/herbs/vitamins that would help fix this? Acupuncture?
A: There are, but we don't recommend them and acupuncture is good for women fertility issues, but not male.

Q: Should we test again soon?
A: In 1-2-3 months. If it doesn't improve, talk to a urologist.

Q: What is the next step?
A: Repeat the SA, or IUI and fertility drugs for me, or Urologist for J.

Q: How often should we BD during OV?
A: Every day to every other day. Studies have shown that don't need day in between to "rest" and more BD means more babies, especially with patients who have low motility.

So, the verdict is....we wait. We alter his eating/drinking/exercise and we wait for a few more cycles to see how this all pans out, then decide.


Up, and not in a good way

So I weighed in this morning and I am up .4 lbs. Not a whole lot, but enough to bug me! I ate well all week and worked out 5 days and nothing! What gives?!

FD #3 - Update

So got home and talked with DH about the results of his SA, compared them to the last one and realized that a year ago (I thought it was 2, but it was only 1) he stopped drinking caffeine (which could help with motility) and he was having health issues in December (after last test). Anyway, the last test his motility was 80, and now it is 43. Will ask the doc tomorrow if there could be a tie to that.

Also, I had found some articles online and scoured my infertility books at home for any information about motility. So I was reading him sentences and paragraphs here and there so he understood what the diagnosis meant.

Some Factoids:
1) Sperm takes up to 3 months to develop (so what was he doing 3 months ago?)
2) Alcohol and hot tubbing can affect motility specifically
3) Motility is how the sperm move and caffeine can actually help that

Anyway, he stopped drinking caffeine after all the dr. visits because they told him it was bad for his head, but stopped cold turkey, not just backed off. The dr. told him to cut down on alcohol and he didn't. As soon as I read him the one about alcohol, he said, "well, maybe if I stop drinking beer altogether, this will fix itself." And he promptly went out to the garage and got something that wasn't a beer! If that doesn't say he wants a kid, I don't know what does!

I feel like some progress has been made today! YAY!

Fertile Day #3 - and report from the doc

So the watch still says "Fertile Day" and we aren't messing around anymore, we are doing our darndest to make sure that we are covered! Won't go into detail, but we are!

DH had another SA on Friday (his last one was almost 2 years ago and apparently the boys change their tune sooner than my body does). So off he went to the doc for the test - so much easier than all of mine. Results were due back in 3-4 days.

Low and behold, the results came back today. Despite the less than stellar news, I finally feel a little better because we know of a problem! DH's motility is 43% and is supposed to be 50% or above. That could be related to his work chemicals, or a variety of other things. He couldn't tell me everything. I will call the doc's office tomorrow for the doc's version so I can see where we go from here. Not the best news, but doesn't mean we won't keep trying. And maybe this is God's way of telling us we need REAL help now.

Cross the fingers that maybe this cycle will be the one because at least we have the OVing down to a science! But now have this new hurdle to leap! And at least now I know that not being able to get pregnant isn't only riding on my shoulders, that it is both of our bodies probably! Not that that is a good thing, but helps me feel like less of a failure as a woman. Also maybe gets him a little bit more into understanding the situation at hand, instead of just be a bystander and when I say "time to go" he jumps!

Pray for us!

Game on...

Alright, woke up this morning and the OV watch said "Fertile Day 1" which means, we are in the thick of where we need to be AND the watch seems to be doing it's job! Soooooooo....here we go!

Went to some friends' house last night to see an old friend of J's who was in town and that was fun. Drank some wine (bad Niki!) and ate some pizza so the scale was too high for me this morning! But now the drinking is done as it seems OV has begun. Need to read up on what the book says about when to BD now that we are in this phase of the cycle. I think it is every other day. Going out with more old friends tonight for a LATE dinner (9 pm, really people?!), but no wine this time.

Worked out this morning with my trainer, updating my workout and making it harder for the next month to get more results. Didn't work out like I usually do because we were experimenting with new things to do. But still got 30 mins of cardio in so that is good. Thinking about a nap since we went to bed late last night and tonight will be another late one, with an early tomorrow for my weekly swim.

Time to rock-n-roll...

Fresh Fat vs. Hard Lard

On my first week at WW, Joanne (the leader I have and love) talked about Fresh Fat and Hard Lard. "Fresh Fat" is the easy stuff - the day's meals you had before joining WW or the last couple lbs that put you over the edge to join. The "hard lard" is the stuff you have had for years that really likes being attached to your body. I'm afraid that is the stuff we are dealing with now. The lbs I gained after the wedding and my smaller waist, that just won't seem to go away. However, for the past 5 years (since we got married), I have primarily focused on working out and "ate what I thought was ok." I am hoping WW is my secret weapon to finishing off the hard lard and melting it away (pun intended!). Wish me luck and any advice is welcome! I have a feeling I will be needing it, but I also feel really confident I can finally do this for real this time!

Week 2 = Successful

So walked with a friend this morning at 6 am and Sierra (our eldest pup) and then went to WW to weigh in. Lost another 2.2 lbs! YAY! I admit I cheated a bit. My first weigh in and last week's were in the evening, and we all know you weigh more in the evening than in the morning. I thought I had lost a little bit (I got on the scale at home and it showed a loss of .6 lbs - which I had been on last week Tuesday morning - it is one of those that remembers!) but WW says I lost more! I won't argue. But now I really have to go Tuesday mornings after my walk so that I know I lost, instead of in the afternoon. But still...I lost! YAY me! Now to do it again! 5.6 lbs down total! ROCK ON!

Walk this morning was so nice. Brisk, but because it is so much cooler in the am, it was wonderful. Wore the HRM (Heart Rate Monitor) with new batteries and I think it is a little off. Says I burned 528 cal walking in 53 minutes, which seems a bit high. Need to investigate!

Back to work now!

OB and OV Watch

Where to begin?

Let's go with the watch. So started wearing the watch last Tuesday (Day 1) like I was supposed to. Worked just fine Tuesday and Wednesday (there is a way to test if it is testing and it was). Thursday, it told me "Not Reading" before I went to bed. Tried all the things in the manual, and still nada! Wore it anyway, hoping it would work during the night. Tested it again in the morning, still "not reading." Now the book says, don't go for 2 days with that because then basically you are SOL. So called the Customer Service line for advice. Val, at OV watch, was very helpful. Gave me some things to do that weren't in the book. Promised to send me a new, free sensor if this one didn't work and I had to go to the next one (Sensors are about $35 each and last for a full month, so trashing one after 5 days is not okay!) Tried them that evening and voila, we are up and running again. Saturday, we went to a party at some friends' house and got home late, completely forgot to put the watch on! DANG IT! Sunday, put the watch on at 10 pm and tested it, you guessed it..."Not Reading"! Tried everything again, except the fix from Val because it took 90 mins and I was not staying up until 11:30 for the dang watch. Finally switched sensors, just in case. Wore it anyway, hoping for the best. Even the new one said "Not Reading." Now I think we're sunk, but not giving in yet.

(OOPS - sidenote...I bought the thing on Ebay and the girl who sold it to me was great. After I called customer service they said they couldn't back up the sensors because I wasn't the original buyer. I told Val a "friend" had given me the watch, then hurridly emailed my Ebay seller to request her help. She was great and called Val and backed up my story, so they switched the address on the watch so will send new, free sensors if one bugs out! YAY for great Ebayers!)

Back to the story, had left a message for Val on Friday after I heard back from my Ebayer and OV watch was closed. Val called this morning on cell and left a VM with her email address. I do so much better on email! So emailed her the situation as of late and got more input. She put the new sensor in the mail, overnighted, and when I got home from work this evening, I did the 90 min trick and seems the watch is now working. So still have the other sensor and need to send it back once the new one comes in. Wearing the watch now and crossing fingers, toes and eyes that it does what it says it does. (FYI...the OV watch is backed by the American Pregnancy Association as a better tester for fertility than pee sticks and all the other devices out there. Apparently, something in your skin changes when OV is close and gives you more notice than the pee sticks! After months of thinking about it, I finally bought one. Looking back, probably should have done it a year ago and we wouldn't be in the predicament we are today!) Anyway....

OB appt today. Nothing special, just the annual check-up. Of course, my doc (love her!) knows the whole story (she was the one that started me on Clomid initially and had to deal with all the questions and crying!). So she could see we had been to the RE she recommended, and wanted to hear what the progress (or lack there of) was. Good conversation, some questions. Eased my mind on some things (i.e. miscarriage). She thinks I am healthy and happy that the acupuncture seems to be helping with the Endo. Also wanted the name of the Acupuncutrist (Debi) for references. Debi will be happy about that. Also discussed WW with doc because she had suggested it, oh a year ago, just to lose 10 lbs and up the estrogen. And seeing the success I had the first week, now wants to join. Hopefully, weigh in tomorrow will be good again! Although the scale at doc's scared me because it was only down .6 lbs and I have been working out like a crazy woman this week.

Hoping to visit the new baby that was born over the weekend on my way home, but no avail...big day for him (I am guessing the "cut" day). So knowing I needed to schedule DH for his test at RE, stopped there because it was on my way home and could pick up the supplies. Scheduled him and was told to BD tonight, then not for 3 days. Hopefully watch doesn't "alarm" me before the 3 days are up, but I think we will be okay.

Hit the grocery store, called DMV on the way home (DH realized his plates were past due and we hadn't gotten anything in the mail) and then came home and made dinner. Talk about a busy day. And need to be up tomorrow by 5:45 to walk with a friend and Sierra (our eldest pup). So now to be soothed to sleep by the rain (artificial from the radio). Night all!

Thursday, June 4, 2009

On to today...

Told Jason what the doc said last night and he was fine with the decision to get tested again. Maybe will bring us some answers.

Feeling a little off today. My allergies are bothering me and I would love to just go lay down and take a nap. But have to study. Missing Jason...he comes home tomorrow, and I can't wait!

Been wearing the watch and it is interesting. Thus far "NF" (not fertile") which isn't surprising since AF wrapped up yesterday. Going to Acupuncture today and always like that. Not much else today.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009

Talked to the doc...

I had called the doc on Monday with some questions about 1) the drug I am on and whether or not we continue with it, 2) where we go next and 3) Jason's testing. He is very nice and never rushes me.

Answers were,
1)stay on the drug (Prometrium) for a couple more months and keep working at it because we are young/viral/yada yada
2)next step would be artificial insemination or IVF (neither which I vote for) or surgery for the Endometrosis, to which I told him the acupuncture seemed to be helping immensley (at the very least, with the pain) and he was happy. Also told him that one of his staff had told me we would need to come back in this month because if the treatment wasn't working, why continue - he said he didn't agree with that
3) yes, Jason needs to be tested again, since his last one was 2 years ago. Apparently, "that" changes a lot quicker than the chemistry of my body. He won't be happy to hear that, but will be happy I think that we are progressing and it will be at our doc's office, cheaper and tell us more. I think it is senseless to keep trying, if we find out his body has changed and created a different reason. So, that is our next step I think.

Alright, back to the books!

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

I lost! I lost! I lost!

YAY! First week at WW and I lost! That is right, the scale went down - hasn't done that forever! AF even came today too. I lost 3.4 lbs! Can you tell I am excited? It was so nice to have worked hard all week and accomplished something! Now to add in my exercise and do it again! I lost! YAY!

Here comes the OV watch...

Alright, AF showed up today, so that means I finally get to figure out the OV watch and use it. Should be interesting. Also left a message for the doc yesterday with some questions about the drugs I am on, where we go from here, etc. Was kind of a miserable night, painful (from AF and my first workout back yesterday - good pain!), odd dreams and no hubby. He is in Phoenix for classes all this week. Kind of nice to be home alone, but also lonely. Back to work now!
