Our trip to Arizona was amazing! We were welcomed with open arms & participated in so much stuff! The weekend went way too quick though; which was the saddest part of the whole weekend. We went quadding, to dinner, had a birthday party for a 4 & 5 yr old, ran around Arizona and shared in home meals with the whole family. It was so nice and relaxing.. did I mention that we were beyond spoiled? Breakfast & coffee every morning.. amazing lunches and two incredible home cooked meals. I almost cried when we left but although short; it was awesome. I learned that my dogs have a HUGE separation anxiety issue & that we need to do weekend getaways more often.
Tuesday I started my day off with my pre-op appointment. My least favorite of the two Dr's was on the rounds & changed our plan of action again. So this coming Thursday I'll have a HSG dye test done. They want to check my tubes for any blockage or damage that Eddie might have caused. I should be able to start the Clomid & Trigger shot after my follow up appointment on September 19th. Should being the key word; every time I go in something is changed or they want to run more tests... but I'm happy that they are taking all these extra steps so that we don't have any pregnancy issues later. I got to see pictures of the benign tumor that they removed; it was nasty. I also got to see the inside of my uterus and the entrance to my fallopian tubes; which was awesome!!
Leaving the Dr's office I got a flat tire which offset the remainder of my day. Grocery shopping on Wed was a great treat - the female roomie went with and we took our sweet time while enjoying the AC at the Commissary. We also walked around the NEX and indulged in some Starbucks.
I restarted my workouts with the hubby on Thursday - which was nice. I've really been looking up "kettlebell" exercises and applying those to our workouts. I can totally feel the effects of the Kettlebell squats and the dumbell side bends with a 25lb weight. We've been using the Leg Press, the seat abductor/adductor outer/inner thigh, the hip raise machine, and leg raises machine. Then the next day we really focus on arms. My Dr told me that I should start focusing my workouts on "pregnancy" workouts so I don't stress my body out with the sudden change. I have no idea what "pregnancy" workouts are & to be honest pinterest is no help in this matter. Suggestions??
Otherwise it's HOT. Our house, like many in SD, doesn't have ac. So these 100* degree days heat up the house so quickly & it's hard to get anything done. I stayed up all night Saturday just to clean the house - so not kidding. My awesome hubby bought a AC window unit and roomie couple did too. Ours should arrive this afternoon & be installed tonight.. hoping it will cool this blazing house off!! This is my explanation for being MIA for a week.
I'd love to hear some pregnancy workout suggestions.
Hope you enjoyed a couple of picture collages from our trip to Arizona.
