Tiger- I haven't had anymore twinges or signs of anything since the weekend. Not even a weird pee smell that I've noticed...I know....TMI....hehe. As for which fruit was I near...bananas. It was kinda nice. He said, "Has anyone told you how pretty you look today?" Then he introduced himself and made a few more nice comments. I politely said thank you and left....blushing and smiling. Made my whole day! Not that the man was that handsome or anything, but it was nice to hear from a harmless stranger. I told my DH and he laughed and said...I tell you how beautiful you are all the time. When do you plan to POAS? I think that I will Monday morning...maybe Sunday even. I get antsy when it gets close.
Didi- 20 EGGS!!!
Awesome! I am so jealous! But very proud of you! Good job! Can't wait to hear your fertilization report.
Amanda- Great wedding photo! You're a beautiful couple!
Franny- Enjoy your needle free day! Congrats on your wedding anniversary. My ET was the day before my 1st year anniversary. I actually didn't get my husband anything because of the week of with the ER and everything. We talked about it and agreed not to do gifts. I really didn't have time anyway because my daughter was still in school and I had alot of volunteer work I had to do before that week. I made him a nice card and we went out to dinner at the Montage a few days later. He made me a book of poems that he put together from all of the poems he's written me since we met. It was very sweet. Have an awesome day with DH! Best wishes for many more to come!
Lou- Thanks for the exercise advice. I am a really healthy person, which is why when I started seeing cellulite that I was like...what is this? I've alway gone to the gym and do weight training. I'm a healthy eater in general. I don't eat fried or fast food. I read labels. I don't really count carbs or calories. I just don't eat things with a high fat content or bad stuff in them. I eat alot of fresh foods and I've always drank protein shakes. Since January I have stopped going to the gym and started walking more and doing more light free weights at home. For 2 months I did absolutely nothing. My cellulite isn't unbearable...I've just never had it before. My acupuncturist said that I was healthy for my own longevity and that's great, but to get pregnant I need to be a little unhealthy and that I should raise my cholesterol until I'm pregnant. He told me to eat a whole egg a day. I think that the little amount of desserts that I was eating went straight
to my thighs. Now that I am aware of it...I will not be doing that. I have been eating more things like avocado and nuts. It's more fat, but it's a healthier fat. Oh...I almost forgot. I looked at the IVFMEDS site too. I think I will be doing the same next time.
Teresa- My acupuncturist uses a heat lamp on me too. He also uses an electric current stimulator. He hooks a few of the needles up in the stomach area and they pulse. As for the moax stick. I have heard of it, but my guy hasn't suggested me use it. Try it...maybe it's just what you need. Are you on the lupron flare protocol that Tammy talks about? Have you done it before? I know that waiting to start seems to take forever. Don't worry....you'll be poking yourself in no time.
Ester- Zumba sounds like fun. A few of my friends in ATL started doing it and says they love it. Belly-dancing sounds great. I've always wanted to try it! I'm sure it would help with the mid-section.
Ann- I'm thinking of you and hoping for a BFP!
Sunshine- Can't wait to hear your new beta numbers tomorrow!
Tammy- Thanks again for the lupron info. You seem to know a little about everything...which I love.
Renee- How are you doing?
AFM- I am enjoying alot of 'me' time. My husband is gone to work until Thursday evening. My daughter is still in ATL and will be back on next Tuesday. The weather here in Southern California is finally getting better. It hasn't been very sunny for at least 3 weeks. Not like summer at all...even a little cold at times. On Monday the sun finally came out and I am in better spirits because of it.
I live a block from the beach, so I walk my dog by the beach daily...sunny or not. I've been shopping and catching up with friends. It's been kinda nice. I do miss my daughter alot, but it's nice to have a break.
Thanks for all of your comments and advice on my cellulite issue. You guys are awesome! I will take all advice and use it to the best of my ability! I am on a mission to get rid of it....or at least to make it better.
*Lots of love*
P.S. Sorry to have written a book. I have alot of free time on my hands.
