I'm feeling better

I know, I know two posts in one day. But I haven't posted in a while and with a couple of days on the beach and hours spent in the airport I have had a lot of time to think. I may have to figure out how to mobile blog.

I am feeling better. It is amazing. I think I just forced myself to get out of the funk I was in after the failed IUI. I started looking to the future more and setting goals that are crushed 2 weeks at a time. I have signed up for a half marathon at the end of May for many different reasons:

#1 - to have something else on my calendar other than cycle charting.

#2 - to get back into shape. IF treatment really has gotten me out of shape. A lot of it is self-inflicted, but between being over stimulated from the drugs and hearing the threat of flipping ovaries to massive cysts because of the drugs, etc., etc., I have not been in the greatest condition to work out.

#3 - exercise really is a natural anti-depressant and I can use all of that I can get!

So not that I am patting myself on the back or anything, but since I am feeling better I scheduled a dinner with two of my friends who are both within 3 weeks of giving birth. I sat at the dinner tonight, talked about my vacation, books we were reading and asked questions about their pregnancies. Not a lot, but enough to show I do really care about them and their pregnancies.

I was glad I got that all out of my system because I am not sure when I will be able to do that again. However, the next time I see them they will probably be both nursing newborns.

One day at a time. . .


  1. Hi there. I'm here via ICLW.

    You do deserve a pat on the back for having dinner with a couple of obviously pregnant friends and making it through. I liked the photo below. I really hope you get to use it to announce a pregnancy.

  2. Good for you! I'm about to head to brunch with a pregnant friend, and know how much energy it can take to ask enough questions to show you care, but to also have lots of other topics to talk about so the whole meal isn't consumed with baby-baby-baby.

    Hope you continue to feel good!


  3. I agree with Liv, you deserve a big pat on the back! Exercising is huge. I totally suck at it. It HURTS! Good for you for going to lunch with your friends. I'm glad you had a nice relaxing time on your vacation, I hope those pesky cysts go away, soon.

  4. Its wonderful that you are doing things to help yourself feel better. And, I know how hard those meetings with pregnant friends can be...congrats on being able to handle it.
