All that relaxing yesterday must have helped, because I got home from the pool and typed up my "Snapshot Sunday" blog post and shizam period.
Nothing like a 40 day cycle to make you
So I called the RE today. I go in tomorrow for Cycle Day 3 ultrasound, blood work and to learn about my medications this cycle.
I also went to my acupuncturist today. I think it was my best session so far. I had 10 needles in me and the infrared lamp on my lower abdomen. I have been extremely uncomfortable since my period started. The warmth on my uterus was just what the doctor ordered. I told Dominic -my acupuncturist- that I wanted to take his light home with me and keep it over my uterus for the length of my period. Its so much better than wearing a heating pad or using those disposable heating pads.
I laid on the table for about an hour and just stared out the window. I listened to the music. I practiced deep breaths. I relaxed and I talked to God for the extent of my time there. The blue sky with white clouds just called to me.
I thanked God that my friend delivered her twins last night safely and they are both healthy and everyone is doing well.
I thanked God for a job that allows me to take time off and relax.
I thanked God for all the blessings that Rob and I have in our lives.
I prayed for Rob to find a job or some answers for what we are going to do soon.
I prayed for a good cycle ahead of us.
I watched out the window and saw the breeze in the trees. The birds flying around. I was truly grateful for today.
After acupuncture I was filled with a calmness that I haven't had in awhile. I know whatever is meant to be will be. This cycle is filled with hope for me and I have a good positive vibe going into it.
I walked the Ocean City boardwalk and just thought about our future. Our baby that is out there somewhere and I felt serene and ready for whatever the future holds.
Im happy, Im relaxed, Im thankful, and I am hopeful. I haven't been this relaxed accompanied with this peace filled feeling the entire time we've been called infertile. I think its a good sign.
Definitely a good sign.
