Nothing Exciting

My TWW is almost over. Nothing feels different but hey who knows right!? Anywhoo I had my blood draw last week along with a fasting glucose test. My fasting glucose number was down 7 points from where it had been the first time which I will take as a win. Now I'm sure it can be lower but hey we can always stand for some improvement somewhere right? My progesterone, however, was 8.8. I realize it is an improvement and I am staying positive. Repeat I am staying positive! I did go to good old goog.le and there have been some stories about positive tests with that low of progesterone. So please keep your fingers crossed! The nurse P did tell me that should this cycle not work then we will up the dose and give it one more try. If still a negative then we move onto the injectables and Matt and I move onto a break from Dr. S. 

On another note, I have a workout buddy! An old friend from my 4-H days and I reconnected and we are motivating each other at the gym. It definitely keeps me motivated and makes me not want to miss since I have someone counting on me to be there. I will say that my shin splints have come back with a vengeance so I have opted to do more of the elliptical and bike. Eventually it seems like I get over a hump of some sorts and they go away so I've been taking it easy and walking on the treadmill at a ssssssllllllllloooooowwwwww pace but hey none is better than some.

Nothing else is really going on with my life these days, these TWW's are super boring actually! Either way I will take a for sure TWW over anything else. I also want to give a shout out to a fellow bloggy friend who did get her BFP and I am super excited for her, even though I know this is late in saying but yay Scarlet!

Oh and if anyone can help the dumby here who tried to upload a new background from The Cutest Blog on the Block and somehow I couldn't get it to work =( so any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. I see your new, pretty blue background! I love it! Way to go on the positivity front. I've seen my own progesterone numbers like that too, and it is possible...wishing, hoping, praying for you! So glad you have a gym buddy too- what a great motivator! A bunch of my girlfriends are dropping weight left and right using My Fitness Pal, I on the other hand, am eating everything in my path :)

  3. It's so great to have workout buddies! I am most consistent on days that I have someone that is counting on me the way I'm counting on them. Hoping your 2ww ends well!

  4. Glad you a staying positive and things are starting to look up, even if it's just a little!! Finding a workout buddy is more than half the battle! I get so bored with my blog I am always looking for ways to change it, but everything is just so darn difficult!

  5. That's awesome that you have someone to go with. Plus, I don't know if you are stretching right after you run or workout but if not do because that will help with you shin splints. They aren't fun!!! :( You are so amazing and you will overcome any bumps you come by!! I love your post and they keep me motivate! Hey where are you from anyways??
