Things are Different

6 May

This cycle, things are different.

First of all, despite what I said earlier, my period is back to being long and voluminous. TMI: on Wednesday, I was under the impression that AF left the town and we had sex. Boy, was I happy my dearest hubby didn’t turn on the light when he went to the bathroom… Two days later, AF is still out and about. All in all, I believe long AF is good – it means my lining grows thick and fertile or so I want to believe.

My mood improved tremendously. I’m not fixed on ‘getting pregnant’ as much as I was last cycle, as I am focusing now on my career change plans. These thoughts are making me happy. They awakened me from my half-depressed half-asleep state of mind. So much so that yesterday I went out on my rollerblades in the nearby park, today I am going out for sushi with my friends and – the most important thing – I spent the whole day today creating.

I joined a glass mosaic class and today I was working on my project for about 7 hours straight. My back is killing me and my finger tips are covered in micro cuts and teeny-tiny splinters, but am I feeling happy!!!

I also submitted my application for the 6-month graphic design program, along with samples of my work. Keep my fingers crossed.

I feel like things are moving.

I feel rejuvenated.

And you know what? Birds are singing, sun is out, and a fat caterpillar crossed my path as I was struggling to stay up in my rollerblades yesterday.

Life is beautiful. You just need to stop and notice it.

    I’m glad you are feeling positive and concentrating on real life (that’s what I call my world outside of infertility).

    Good luck with this cycle and your career plans.

      Thank you Cinderelly!
      My friends repeatedly insisted on my focusing on the world around me. So far, so good!

    Stopping by from Stirrup Queens and wanted to wish you good luck on your journey.

    I also have pcos and have been diagnosed for about a year and a half. It’s a tough road but keep hope that it’ll happen for you. That’s all we can do. That, and keep pushing ahead.

      Hi Alissa,
      I was first diagnosed when I was about 19 or so, but back then it meant nothing to me and I forgot about it.
      And then we started TTC… A fruitless year on our own, and we’re into cycle 2 with the clinic.
      Let’s hope we push through this – soon!

    Glad to hear that you’re feeling so good! The mosaic class sounds like it would be awesome. I’d love to see a picture when you’re done!

      I will definitely share!
      It is painstakingly slow. Three hours of work yielded only about a square inch covered with tiles. Yikes!
