And so it begins..

So lovely AF returned yesterday, right on time, exactly 28 days from the day I had my 2nd m/c. I'm thankful really, that my body bounced back much quicker than the 1st time (which took 12 weeks holy cow!) but now I'm like here we go again...

I guess it's ideal really because if I stay on sched of 28 days; and my specialist appt is on Aug 20 - then it would perfect timing to do the tests and see if I need to start beefing up on anything during my next cycle --- I've been preoccupied with a lot of things lately that have completely taken my mind off of this whole baby making business -- been visiting a lot these past weeks with good friends, spending quality time with my sister, and scheming up new ways of re-arranging the furniture in our living room (poor hubby lol)

*Robin update*
I was working from home on Monday and I'm so glad I did because I witnessed the baby robins' first flight out of the nest. *tear* I felt so happy watching them hopping in the backyard for a bit with their mom and dad -but unfortunately for us, they haven't returned to their nest since Monday. I said to DH that I felt sad they had left us so soon -- just like the two babies we never had. Might sound silly but I feel like God brought the robin family to us to show us that not only to stay faithful and hopeful, but that he is taking care of us and our baby-to-be, just like he took care of those two baby robins until they were ready to be born.

We have a long weekend coming up in Canada so I'm super excited to finally get away up north - going to try tree-top trekking with DH (I hope it doesn't rain b/c there is no way I am walking across trees 20 ft up in the air in a storm!) and maybe some hiking and just 'outdoor' stuff this weekend. We are celebrating our 3 yr wedding anniversary a bit earlier as it didn't work out with work schedules to take of the actual weekend of. Wish me luck! Hope to post some pictures of our weekend adventures shortly.. ;)


  1. That's great that your period is already back. That's always a long, hard wait. I know exactly what you mean about the timing being good. I'm almost hoping mine DOESN'T come until after my appointment with the specialist because I don't know if she'll want me to do blood work or anything. Good luck with that appointment!!

  2. Have fun on your trip! I love doing outdoor stuff and used to go camping all the time! Sounds like you will have a wonderful time!
    oh and btw, the needles really aren't bad at all with acupuncture. I HATE needles, but that was nothing compared with the weekly blood draws @ the RE's office I have lately.

  3. Hi Wendy - thanks for your comment. I totally agree/understand about other people's blogs being a comfort. These have been the best support I've had. I'll be following you, too!
    Have a great time in Canada!
