FET Madness Day 5

Nothing too crazy going on. 4 doses of Estrace down and I was not having any side effects until last night when I woke up soaked to the bone. Ahhh...night sweats. Lovely.

We had a delightful weekend - fun, friends, food and relaxing. I maxed out on caffeine, spl.enda, red wine, sodium and nitrates. I probably gained 5lbs! I am back on the straight and narrow and off all the bad stuff - I am 5 days pregnant after all and wouldn't want to harm the frosties! Still my goal to be down 20lbs before transfer, so I've got some work to do.

The kids I tutor for are done with Spring Break, so it is back to regularly scheduled programming for me. I was really loving being home in the evenings with Sean - it is such a foreign concept to us. He has always worked super long days and would rarely get home before 9:30 and I usually tutor until around 9 myself. With spring break and Sean's new work schedule, we were beside ourselves! Oh well, only 3 more months of school and then on to summer schedule tutoring.

We are likely heading to Buffalo this weekend. Sean's oldest sister is having half of her colon removed on the 31st and the whole family is pretty stressed and nervous. We would like to spend some quality time with everyone before the surgery. We are praying for a good outcome and a speedy recovery for her!

Trying to focus on all positive things right now! I am so happy Spring is here and am anxiously awaiting warmer weather, flip flops and capris! The next month should fly by - we have a lot going on - Buffalo, transfer, family visiting for Easter, hopefully a BFP... (a girl can dream, can't she?)

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Glad you had such a great weekend! I am so excited that your transfer is just around the corner! WOO HOO! :)

Sorry about those night sweats- they are no picnic.

Love the night sweats and hot flashes! Good luck with the rest of your wait for transfer -- you've inspired me to get out and enjoy the spring!

Sounds like a good weekend. I had a little to much pizza, hot wings, and rum this weekend, so I need to get back to eating better and working out. Still, sometime you just have to be bad!
I'm crossing my fingers and toes for your BFP!

Glad you had fun! I asked my SIL about doing WW again and she said yes but that we had to have "a farewell to food binge" - so unhealthy. We did it the first time and I lost 10, yes 10 pounds in one week because of the sick binge I had the night before the official weigh-in.



Caroline said...

Good on you for thinking positively. I hope that Sean's sisters's surgery goes well.

Lost in Space said...

Night sweats suck ass!! I hope you are able to have some peaceful no side effects nights ahead.

Glad you had a great weekend and love your positive attitude. I hope that dream comes true!!

All my best for your SIL's surgery too.

Night sweats suck. Get ready- I had them during pregnancy and after, too. There's no reprieve :)

Praying for you and for your SIL. Sending you both good thoughts.
