My Story

The chronicle of the journey from infertility, to miscarriage, to finally raising twin girls born in June 2012.

One year ago today

On Aug 30th, 2010, I became pregnant.  Well, the embryo and the spare that would become my girls was transferred back into my body.

Coincidentally, I've felt like crap all day.  Could barely get out of bed, everything is stiff, and even 2 hours later after my acupuncture appointment, I still felt like I hadn't actually woken up yet.

And last night I got a headache.  Got another one earlier but took some aspirin and I'm starting to feel just tired rather than exhausted and achy.

Wish I could make some big connections between the date and feeling crappy, but since I really haven't been dwelling, I'm going to have to chalk it up to coincidence or the beginnings of some sort of illness.

In diet news, not doing so good.  I saw 233.9 on the scale a couple of days ago but today I bounced back up to 237 (aka, the starting weight for this particular weight loss endeavor).  I'm not really good at this when the deadline is vague, seems so far off, and there's only a couple of pounds to lose.  It's too easy to tell myself that this one cookie doesn't matter.  So I end up telling myself that more often than I should.

  1. I think our bodies remember more than we give them credit for. One year after my first miscarriage, I had a cycle that EXACTLY mimicked my IVF cycle -- only completely without meds. Same O date, same period start date, etc. It was very odd.

    That being said, today is hard, whether you consider yourself "dwelling" or not. It's hard, and the next few months are going to be hard. I'm thinking of you and your girls, and sending lots of love out into the universe for all three of you.



Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
