Family visit: Friday after work I visited with my step-sister and her 4-y-o son. It was lovely to read him a story (or three) as he went to bed. Didn't leave me sad, just more determined to be a mom.
Baby Shower: Saturday got up early to finish cleaning the house before the 8 ladies arrived for the baby shower. I didn't serve bourbon and none of my guests wanted to drink (it started at noon). We did have great food and a blast decorating onesies of various sizes with fabric paints as gifts for the mom-to-be. Then we did a Mad_Lib and then opened presents. It was a really good time. Again, it didn't leave me sad at all, but just happy for her (a "whoops PG" at age 41, not married and with a guy who travels a lot for his job, not the best combo).
Adult fun: (not that kind, get your mind out of the gutter!) Sunday I slept in (take THAT, all you moms out there! Ha!) and then went to a Purim party - drank red wine and had a blast (take that, all you moms-to-be out there who can't drink! I'm not bitter, really! LOL!)
Overall, a wonderful weekend...
Period from hell: Only dark side is that I'm on my 8th day of bleeding, if you call this rusty brown leakage bleeding. My period normally lasts 3-4 days and is mostly bright red. TMI? Sorry.
Fitness: My next step is to get back to exercising! I'm 30 lbs over my ideal weight. Since we're taking a break with ART until May I have time to get back to my pre-IVF and pre-TTC weight. I joined Weight_Watchers, but have had a hard time getting back to tracking.
Are any of you out there working on losing weight between treatments? Any tips or words of wisdom for us?
Okay, that catches you all up. Work's going to be super busy this week, so if you don't hear from me, know that I'm doing well, and keeping out of trouble.
