that dress...

Here's what I look like in this dress at 32 weeks.

And here's what it looks like now.


Yes, I'm still taking pictures in our women's room...

And check out those heels. I'm just glad my feet get into them and they aren't 1/2 as swollen as they were when I was pregnant.  I won't and don't wear heels every day, but I have a few times since having Coen.  Not my most favorite option, but they still make everything look better, even if they aren't that comfy.

Just wanted to note how my body has changed.

Another note.  A lot of people are asking me why I'm so dressed up today.  To be perfectly honest.  My clothes don't fit me.  I'm 5 pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight and I just cannot get clothes on like I used to.  My hips are wider and my stomach just isn't as flat as it once was.  Plus, when I get into them and sit all day, they pinch my tummy and that just doesn't feel good after 8 hours of sitting.

I'm thinking about being more aware of what I'm eating.  I mean, I have to keep my calories up for nursing, but I can make better choices.  I just feel like I'm starving when I don't eat all day.  It's maddening.  Today I packed a can of soup, PB&J x2, frozen SmartOnes meal, 2 apples, pretzels, oatmeal x2 and gold fish.  That should be good for today's meals/snacks while at work, but there are some days when I bring 1/2 that and I literally get a headache from not eating more.

Oh well,  one of these days things will start to take shape again.

Happy Thursday!

I am mostly a lurker, but I HAD to chime in and tell you that I am having the exact same problem! I am 5 pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight, but my clothes just. don't. fit. Still, after seven months. Glad to know I'm not the only one! And sorry you're going through this- I can commiserate!

I like that dress and think it is great that you can wear it post baby! next time people ask you why you are so dressed up you should say "because I feel like it"!!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on webmd.com just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
