Well I won't be starting today! I still need to go grocery shopping for all my supplies. I typically had a kale, celery, apple, orange juice smoothie with cinnamon and ginger. Or peanut butter, banana, flax seed and greek yogurt. Mmmm. Now that I'm thinking about it , I'm not sure why I quit making them, they were super yummy!

And at my job I had free access to a gym. But I'm not working there anymore so that part might be tough. Hmmmm. I always try to do home workout videos but it's so hard to stick without motivation of others around you!

I *think* I just got a negative pregnancy test!

The only thing is , I didn't test first thing in the morning. I'm going to test again tomorrow morning and probably go back to my doctor for a blood draw.

I'm so excited! It wasn't even a faint line, just completely white! I hope I'm not excited for nothing. It's been a long five weeks and I'm ready to see a light at the end of the tunnel!

hanrh- so sorry to hear your story. Hope you heal quickly both physically and emotionally.

As for the working out... I have been crossfitting for a few years (and I'm still a bit overweight even though I have enough muscle now to pick up a house, lol). I was taking it easy during pregnancy, but have really enjoyed being able to go hard again after the loss. It has really offered me a way to exert some of that negative energy. I am terrible at running/cardio (though I'll give you a run for your money with the jump rope), but I LOOOOOOVVVEEEEE lifting weights. I took a big hit to my ego when I had to drop my workout weights after becoming pregnant--but I never lost sight of why it was important to stop lifting heavy, and that got me through. I did attend class less often while pregnant also, so I really need to focus on getting back in the gym 4-5 times a week, like before I was pregnant. The healthy eating went out the window with pregnancy as well. Glad to hear you guys are in the same position. I have GOT to get back on the healthy eating bandwagon--especially if we decide to start trying again in December after talking to my dr at tomorrow's appointment. We should all work together to stay accountable since we all seem to be feeling the same way about getting back to a healthy routine.

Planning to take a preg test tomorrow morning just to see. Line was pretty light last time. Hoping it will be nearly invisible tomorrow. I do think that my cycles are trying to get back to normal though. My cm is moving toward ewcm this week, so at least I know SOMETHING is happening in that department. I went ahead and did an opk this afternoon and it was negative for a surge. I expected this much, but just wanted to check since cm seems to be changing. It just would have been nice to know my cycles are returning to normal. I want to be one of those people that af returns right on schedule 4 weeks after d&c. I'm a little overly hopeful. lol.

Now that I have written a novel, I'll stop typing. Hope everyone is doing well today.

Ah! I knew I was forgetting some important topic. As far as genetic testing, they never told me whether or not they are going to do any testing on the baby. I kind of want them to, just to know what the issue was, but I also kind of don't want to know--especially if they have the ability to tell me whether it was a boy or a girl. Not really sure if I will be equipped to handle that knowledge. But also not sure I don't want to know if they can tell me. Guess we will just see what comes out of my mouth if she knows and asks me if I want to know. lol. I assume I will find out all of this information at tomorrow's appointment. I'll update after.

Okay kdmalk, you sound like you do some intense working out, don't think I can keep up with that! Haha. I typically just ran on the treadmill or use the elliptical. Or yoga. I should probably do some weight lifting, my arms are sooooo weak! It's just so hard to get started. Once I'm in a routine and have been with it for a week or so, I love working out! Getting there is the problem. I think I'll try tomorrow with something simple. I went grocery shopping and got everything for my smoothies so I'm planning to start that again in the morning!

Your smoothies sound really good! I am just too lazy to do anything in the morning before work. Maybe I can do an afternoon snack smoothie. lol.

So... upon further evaluation, I am definitely going to push my doctor on the whole "trying again in december" thing if she says everything looks good tomorrow. I am thinking of trying SMEP. If my chances are higher, I really don't want to miss any of this time. Are you guys doing anything special?

That's what I would do. Most of the time there's no real reason to wait, although sometimes if they suspect here could be damage to the uterine wall from the d and c, that might be way. Otherwise, I say go for it right away! Are you taking any supplements or anything to help strengthen your uterus? I've heard raspberry leaf tea is good for that. Don't really know, it's more suggested by midwives and natural health people rather than obgyns, but I've been taking it like crazy!

I don't exactly have a plan like smep, I just intend to start DTD like crazy once my hcg drops. I don't think my husband will have any objections. We got pregnant our first try before, so hoping that happens again!

I'm not taking anything, but if you say raspberry leaf tea, I'll go for it. I have heard other people mention it in passing. Where can you find it?

You can get the tea or the supplements, I've used both. I prefer the tea, but I'm a tea drinker in general. Any health food store would have them, even some standard grocery stores might. My last batch I got from target. Make sure it's raspberry LEAF and not just raspberry.

I'll hit up target on my way home from work tomorrow! Thanks for the tip.

And now that I think we are going to start in december instead of january, guess I better get my fast food eating butt in gear and put good stuff in my body again.
