Days 14 and 15

Yesterday, I literally never looked at my computer! It was just one of those go-go-go days! However, towards the end of the day I got to spend time with a friend due to deliver any day now and another that has a 7 week old infant. I was kind of expecting the time to put an ache in my heart, but it didn't! I left feeling re-charged and so excited for the new chapters in the lives of these two families. My heart was so refreshed and the whole evening felt like a two hour vacation from life...

WARNING: I'm about to discuss "women things" like periods and ovulation. If you're not into that sort of thing, please stop reading now.
Today, I'm thankful for PMS. Yes, I hate PMS (as does the Hubsters!) but right now, it's a beautiful reminder that I'm finally ovulating again. For several months after our miscarriage, I didn't ovulate at all. In August, the doctor decided the reason was Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Basically, I create all of the hormones I need and then have trouble processing and absorbing it. So we started new medicine in August that will help. So far, it seems to be doing it's job. I am ovulating on schedule and this month I am "thrilled" to add a raging case of PMS to the list of signs that my meds are working!
