1. I got to really talk to a good friend of mine that I lost touch with about a year ago. Getting all these things out and open didn't make it seem like such a huge load. Different perspectives are a huge deal. I'm glad that he could repeat different things and make me realize that they were kinda petty and small. I'm also glad that I got to really vent without having to text someone or be within a 45 minute time slot.
2. The IVF coordinator called my husband & I to set up our schedule. It's really happening. We are about to dive into the biggest and scariest infertility adventure and we are excited. I've googled a couple of medicines but the Military Infertility facebook group I'm apart of really helped me by explaining the procedure. I now know a little more of what to expect, what the time lines are and also found a couple of other ladies who also got their phone call today. I won't be walking this journey alone & it's nice to know that I'll have other people to ask questions too.. but most importantly understand. We decided to have a meetup on the 16th to introduce ourselves .. possibly a new friend or two. That's pretty awesome.
I'm debating on keeping my schedule and procedures quiet. I feel that the more I talk about them & share them the more I feel the disappointment. I want to share my stories. I want to help others through these difficult journeys ~ it's why I blog. I also feel that it puts a lot of pressure on myself to achieve this dream.
3. I went to the gym. Yep you are reading that right .. I went to the gym. My second trip since I hurt my knee. Third trip this year. I'm so proud of myself. I didn't do anything close to what I was doing but baby steps. I did a 7 min brisk walk on the treadmill, 10 min spin on the bike, 10 min glide on the elliptical and a 10 min stair climber machine. I mean that was 37 min more then I was doing before..
HIGH FIVE!I was also blessed to be included with my room mate and his girlfriend tonight. It's nice that even when I can't be on their workout level they still invited me, checked up on me and encouraged me. Seriously awesome. The plan is to go back tomorrow and do arms. I can keep up with them on arms but legs are a little tricky for me right now.
All in all I think it was a nice turn of events for me. I think it was nice to hear from certain people. to be included. to achieve a goal. to get the IVF phone call. Finally some good.
