Wishful Thinking

I find myself walking around the last couple days thinking I might actually get pregnant. Earlier I saw a co worker who has been wearing baggier shirts and eating more than normal and the thought occured to me that she may be pregnant and how far along might she be and would we end up on maternity leave back to back.

Now, I am on a break... I just got done with the estrace and started one prometrium at night for a week and then I have to wait a whole nother month to even think about starting and that's after another view of my lady parts by my dr. So it's funny that I had this dialog in my head. I guess for a moment it seemed possible that when we start trying again we will actually get pregnant and it will go well.

It gives me the giggles which is a far better state than I have been in awhile. Let's just say I feel cautiously optomistic which is better than expecting the worst.

I am dieting. I figured since I had the time it might be nice to get into a BMI that doesn't raise my risk for miscarriage...optimize the whole body now that the uterus is optimized.

I am doing Weight Watchers. I've done it before and it's worked well for me. Last week though I didn't lose anything and I kept on plan so I should have lost. Does anyone know if the estrace causes weight gain? I know progesterone makes me bloat up like crazy but wasn't sure about the estrogen.

I've also been considering accupuncture, I've read about other ladies doing it but it's hard for me to get on board for another apt where someone pokes me with needles. I have had enough of that for a lifetime :) Wondering if anyone had a really good experience they'd like to share with me?

Hi! I just read your whole blog from the beginning. Good lord, you've been through a lot! I'm glad the cautious optimism is creeping back in, because from where I sit you ARE closer to parenthood after your surgery. Forty-schmorty: seems like you've got lots of good eggs to use.

I have nothing to offer about acupuncture. I hope you're feeling great soon and that this last month on the bench goes fast.

Awww, I'm very happy to hear you feeling a little optimism. That's fabulous! (And don't be bummed if it comes and goes.) I do think you have GOOD reason to be more optimistic. Of course, that's what people keep telling me and it does nothing for me, so I won't blame you if you just find that annoying.

Good luck with the weight loss. It sounds like it will go well with your new, optimistic approach!

As for acu, Katie over at does it and loves it!
