I'm so glad everything went great with the ultrasound! (I'm betting a girl hehe)
My opks stayed very dark + for 3 days I only bd once so not much hope this cycle. I'll just be glad to get af back hahaha
Also doing much much better on meal prep this week. I don't like wasting food so if it's all ready to go I would rather eat that then go out. except for nights I work. That is still my downfall of eating really bad
I would love another girl! I don't know what to do with boys lol. I don't have brothers, neither does DH. I know I'd be fine lol. What's funny is before I even knew I was pregnant, I was walking at work and got this strong feeling I was pregnant with a boy. That sure feeling hasn't continued, though. With Nora I felt the whole time that she was a girl.
♣♣♣ Happy St. Patrick's Day, gals! Hope everyone's wearing green. Don't wanna hafta come over there and pinch anyone.
So glad to hear that everything's okay with your little bean, DrJo.
AFM -- I think I forgot to mention that I started taking Myo-Inositol about a week ago. Two 750mg pills a day, one at breakfast and one at lunch. Thus far the biggest change is that I don't feel that overwhelming brain fog that made everything seem 10x more difficult than it actually was, and made me feel like I was always utterly exhausted.
In point of fact, the day before I started taking them, I slept from 10pm the previous night til 10am the next morning. Woke up, had breakfast, went back to bed at 12pm and slept til almost 3pm. Did my few chores and errands, came back home and went to bed at 930pm and slept through the night. And the whole day I felt so so so tired.
That was a regular occurrence, even with the help of caffeine. I have learned that that's because of the insulin resistance and my body not being able to fuel itself with what I'm eating.
Well, the inositol seems to be solving that. I only need 1 cup of coffee a day now, no afternoon energy slump, I can get right out of bed in the morning and feel rested, and I have no problem staying awake later than 930pm on a regular basis.
So it's looking up! I'm hoping it will help with weight loss too. We'll see.
IRYM - that is great! i know what you mean about having low energy. I swear I could sleep for 16 hours at a time if someone let me. I've been seriously considering trying Thrive. one of my friends sells it and has had a ton of successful weight loss with energy boost. the cost is a lot though and I don't love that idea. 150$ a month yikes!
I finally got out for a hike yesterday. It was perfect weather! I didn't realize how much I really really missed it until I was out there. It felt like all of my worry and stress was just gone hoping to go at least once this weekend again if the weather behaves. Im est myself to be at 8dpo right now fingers crossed i should see AF in like 3-4 days!
Well AF showed up and is here with an insane vengeance. I don't think i've ever had a period this bad. Or been this moody, I seriously was soooo mean to my DH today. Just everything he said set me off. ugh work has been total crap the last few nights. Looking forward to having 4 off and going to a concert with my mom today goal of only having one beer and splitting a meal before hand. Shes trying to lose weight too.
Swimmy - I hope AF gets the heck over with and leaves you alone for a good 9 months. What concert are you going to?
AFM -- DH and I both came down with the flu a week ago. Mine turned into acute bronchitis, and here I am, hacking and coughing and pretty much miserable. Forget any kind of exercise, just having a conversation with DH leaves me winded. Ugh!
On the upside, the side effect of the expectorant I'm taking is severe dry mouth, which has me drinking probably 2x the water I was before all this. So I'm sick, but well hydrated.
I've been completely off the boards for awhile (mostly just on Facebook), but I thought I'd check in. My baby is due any day now (due date is this Wednesday, the 29th), and man I'm definitely gonna have some weight to lose once this is all said and done. I went back on carbs after I got pregnant (as I'd read lots of conflicting stuff about restricting types of food during pregnancy, and I didn't want to risk it), and that combined with the fact that I stopped taking Metformin at 12 weeks (standard practice here in Denmark) meant man I've been struggling. Plus the last few weeks, well, I had no idea that it would be so hard to have decent self-control. I was lucky that through the pregnancy I didn't get gestational diabetes, which they were worried about due to my PCOS and BMI when I got pregnant. But I'm definitely going to have my work cut out for me, so I'll be back soon!
I hope to read through some of the recent pages and try and catch up with everyone.
