Today I Fit into a Real Shirt!

…And ran errands, and wore my very own normal kind of bra, and took the stairs!   I even am going to try to co-walk the monster puppy with Hubs this evening because it’s Meatball’s first birthday.

I can’t even tell you how grateful I am for these little things and beginning to feel like a normal person again.  I was able to button up one of my real shirts today which is major progress from having to wear Hubs’ big t-shirts to my big t-shirts, to now a normal shirt.  Also, I have knees again.  Ankles and back, not so much, but I’ll take what I can get for now.

I had an appointment with the RE this morning to check in and am down lots of pounds, with ten more to go.  Word on the street is that I may not lose all of it since my ovaries are still enlarged, my uterus is growing, and hormones are a-raging, but I am happy if I weigh whatever as long as this belly goes down a bit and I don’t have to keep explaining why I look so very pregnant at a mere 5 1/2 weeks.  I also would love to have the luxury of being able to wait through the first trimester to share my pregnancy with patients and everyone else.  So much is taken from you with infertility, that would be a treat.

Also my Beta this morning was 4970 so I am happy about that.

It’s a good day to wear real clothes and a good day to celebrate our sweet Meatball.

Meatball is going to be a big brother and he is happy about it.
