"And I'm feeeeling gooooood...."

Does anyone else have a love/hate relationship with that Jennifer Hudson Weight Watchers commercial? Does anyone else watch as much TV as me?

Apparently having your pelvis and your neck realigned make you want to clean your house. I managed to deodorize & vacuum the carpet, as well as clean out (and not just throw away the food, but actually SCRUB) the fridge. I also did the dishes, cooked dinner, and bathed my kid. Day well done, eh?

Still frustrated with my cycles. I didn't exercise today, but I am DETERMINED to do so tomorrow. I missed temping this morning, but this months cycle is so screwy. Day 37ish and no ovulation. Lovely. I don't know if I should just concentrate on dropping the weight and putting procreating on the back burner for a bit... or if I should seek out more testing to make sure that I'm not missing something. They checked my thyroid in April and it was normal. We don't have the best insurance and I don't want to be out a huge amount of money... but I want to be better. I don't want to fall into the whole "using the weight as an excuse" thing, but I want to find out if it really is just the weight that's causing my cycles to be SO freaking long (and for me to apparently not ovulate).

On a happier note.... my child is hilarious. I'm so blessed to be her mother. At 20 months, she has 12 teeth (10 all the way through, her upper molars are still working on it), can identify a scary amount of shapes (thanks apps for the iPhone...), loves books more than anything, will point to any clock and go "Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock!", will identify anything that has anything to do with "The Wiggles" by screaming "WEE WEE" and wiggling her fingers, is very girly and dainty, loves to "cook" in her kitchen, would live outside if I let her, plays constantly with her "door" we got her, wishes Mommy wasn't quite so stuck up about the whole kissing doggies things, loves stealing chairs and iPhones, still loves her "Pah-peeesh" (pacifier) and just has the best personality.

I'm trying to keep perspective through this whole weightloss/conceiving thing. I have an absolutely beautiful daughter. I don't want her to be my only child, but if there's a 3+ year difference between them?  I guess I'm going to have to live with that. And I can, it just means erasing MY plan and settling in for GOD'S plan. Something I'm not always happy doing, but hey, life happens.

Today was a better day. Praying tomorrow is as well. 


  1. I know exactly how you feel...except well, I don't already have an adorable child!

    I'm on day 47 and no ovulation and no AF... PCOS is driving me nutty!

    Praying for you!

  2. Hey:) They didn't say if he was anterior or posterior. I have no idea!! Glad to hear you're feeling better. Hang in there with the weight loss/baby thing. I know it's hard, but I'll be praying for you!

  3. As weird as this may sound, how do you know you're not ovulating? Are you using an ovulation prediction kit? I'm on day 44 or 45 of my cycle and still no period (I've been regular at 31-34 days since September) but I've been using a kit and it said I was ovulating around day 19 or so. The hubs and I did the baby dance several times starting that day through 5 or so days later. We think we may be pregnant, but we're not sure. We've been TTC for 13 months now, with no success whatsoever. I know I don't have PCOS, but I still can kinda relate to how you're feeling. The weight CAN be an issue, but it isn't the end all be all. Being overweight can decrease your chances of conceiving, but not completely rule it out. I understand that PCOS is a horse of a different color though. I am praying for you!!


  4. Oh and that WW Jennifer Hudson commercial irritates me after awhile. It makes me think "Well of course SHE lost the weight with WW. She can afford to hire someone to make sure she's on track as well as make her food if she so chooses!" ;-)
