200th Post!

Wow!  It seems like just yesterday I discovered the blogging community.  And what a sweet relief it was to know that we are not alone.  I started this blog to help me deal with my diagnosis of POF.  And it really has helped me.  Getting it all out there in the open, it's a release!  There are still times I get really down about our situation, but I can't change it, so I just have to deal with it and find a way to complete our dreams in a different manner.  And that's what we've done. 

With the help of fellow bloggers I have come to a very comfortable place with donor.  I'm still figuring out how we are going to approach the topic with our children, but I'm hopeful that if we raise them with love and honesty that they won't grow up with any issues with their origins.  Anyway, if you are one of my readers Thank you for hanging in with me for 200 rambling posts!  I hope you enjoy some of what I write!

Onto Bebe Update

OB appointment yesterday.  No pelvic exam, no arguing over the Pap, victory for me!  Weight is up, not by much but enough that I need to keep my eye on it.  We heard the heartbeat - 155!  Yahh!  Talked about trying to get to the gym, Dr. says no, but I can swim, so another small victory!  SCH looks like it is fully healed, but B's sac is still there... :(  I had a good cry after the appointment about that.  JD says it's staying around to watch over it's sibling. 

I think the whole issue with me working out is because of the SCH and the gush that I had 5 weeks ago.  I think the Dr. might be worried that I might have an incompetent cervix, or maybe a risk of pre-term labour.  I think I read somewhere that woman who have very large SCH tend to delivery early, but I could be mistaken.  They all just might want me to get fat and lazy who knows!  But I tell you with my stupid thyroid disease and the fact that I only crave crap food, I am gaining weight way to fast.  I'm really going to have to work my butt off after this Bebe!  Oh well!

That's my update for today!

Much Love!

That's right...just focus on whatever you need to do to have a normal pg and then after that you can have your body back and work it to the bone!! I know what you mean about DE issues...we're hoping the same thing!!

wonderful to hear about the good OB appt! I imagine it must be hard to know that baby B's sac is still there. It's a loss and I think it's ok to feel sad about it. Good luck on the swimming! (I try and try to swim at least once a week but am not very good at getting there.....)

Congrats on the 200 mark :) I have enjoyed reading your blog (especially having POF myself too). It has been great to see you keep your chin up through the tough times and find success. Thyroid issues stink (with ya there too) but definitely focus on the bebe and you will have plenty of time and a cute kid to chase after soon enough to burn it off :)
