Hysteroscopy = Done

FET #3 Update

Well, I made it through the hysteroscopy.  Just feeling really tired today but I think that is partly because I couldn’t sleep last night and from the anesthesia.  I have definitely been more anxious this past month and I am not sure if it is because of the holidays or because I am nervous for the next FET.   Maybe a combination of both?  Either way it is causing a disruption in sleep.  No Cool.  My Dr did come over to me while I was half out of it to let me know what she did.  Of course I was out of it and all I remember was asking if what she “fixed” could be why we have not gotten pregnant yet.  I asked the hubby what she said to him and she smoothed out my uterus or something like that and most likely it would not have caused all the failed cycles.  I will get more info during the post-op appointment in a few weeks.  The good news is while we were in the waiting room she had us sign all our FET paperwork which she will be submitting today.  So once that goes through then I will stop the birth control pills, wait for my friend to arrive, go in for baseline u/s and blood work then start the Estrace.  Things are going to start moving along.  I am guesstimating that transfer will be at the end of January or beginning of February.  Not too shabby.  Just a month away.

I took yesterday off from working out obviously but Wednesday I did a new 45 minute Treadmill workout.  I have been on pinterest like crazy trying to find some good workouts.  Here is the one I did on Wednesday:

I added an extra ten minute walk on the end.  It was a good workout for getting back into it after the holidays.  I ended up burning about 400ish calories so that’s always a good thing.  I have been lifting A LOT and cut down on cardio the past few months.  I am going to switch it up and increase cardio and decrease lifting to help lose some of this holiday weight.

First Day of Fall

It is the first day of Fall today!!  The day started looking dreary but it cleared up and ended up being a beautiful day.  I started my morning at 4:15am….not by choice but because I just couldn’t fall back asleep.  I finally climbed out of bed around 5 and decided to head to the gym.  It was amazing there was not one single person there.   No one by the free weights….

or in the rest of the gym!  It was heaven.

Yes, I am that freak taking pictures of the gym a 5:30 in the morning.  I did a great shoulder workout which I found in Phase 2 of Jamie Eason’s Live Fit.  After that I jumped on the treadmill for an hour and burned 500 calories!

I think that is the most that I have seen on my heart rate monitor.  I did a 20 minute interval workout and then the 45 minute workout I said I would stop doing.  The interval workout I got here from Brittany but modified it a bit by making the walking part 3.8mph.

After a hearty breakfast I decided it’s time to take out the Fall decorations.  I really don’t have much and most of them are hand me downs. Hmmm maybe I could get crafty and make some decorations or centerpieces.  First day of fall also means I can break out the Fall Candles.  The things I get excited about…..

What arrived in the mail……

How excited am I?

My heart rate monitor came in today!!! I have been wanting one FOREVER but finally decided to splurge and get one.  What a pleasant surprise to a tired, boring Monday.

Dinner

I typically make up a large batch of cooked turkey for the week.  Doug and I will have turkey tacos at least once a week.  Today I had a turkey taco with corn tortilla, avocado, cilantro, salsa and a dollop of greek yogurt.  Mmmm yummy.

Along side that I had to make this cake batter protein shake I found on Dashing Dish.  Not a beautiful pic but it was mighty tasty.

Oh and for the record I did start jotting down what I ate today! Yay me.  It looks like overall it was a good Monday.
