I am at the peak of my busiest time of the year at work, hence the extended absence here. The busy time comes to a close on Friday night, when 200 people attend the formal holiday party I’ve been planning since last December. There is truly no hell like trying to arrange 200 of your coworkers at tables of 10. It’s like planning a wedding EVERY SINGLE YEAR. It’ll be a nice evening for sure, but the thing I’m looking forward to most is collapsing into my bed at the Four Seasons post-party. They seriously have the best beds. Here’s a sneak peak at the decor of a few previous events to give you an idea.
That aside, life seems to be on board with us taking time off from TTC, as it’s thrown us every curve ball in the book lately. Catch’s grandfather passed away last week on Wednesday, and my nana was admitted to the hospital that Friday and has been there ever since battling a mystery infection. The death has hit Catch pretty hard and brought up a lot of the past for me. Then when my only remaining grandparent got so sick, it pushed me over the edge even more. I desperately want our future baby to meet my nana. We can’t lose her now.
All of that added to the normal stress of the holidays and my craziness at work has made me glad we’ve put the OPKs away for the time being.
My doctor appointment was moved up to tomorrow, and I’m desperately hoping for some answers and guidance on this PCOS nightmare. The original appointment I’ve been waiting weeks for was scheduled for the 26th, but that’s the day of my grandfather in law’s funeral service so I called and begged them to change it. Fortunately, they were very nice and squeezed me in sooner rather than later.
On the weight loss front, over the past 5 weeks I’ve lost 11.9 lbs. I’m pretty proud of that. It’s not easy LOSING weight over the holidays, but we’re sticking with it and it’s paying off. Catch is down 14.9! That’s not to say we don’t have our moments, though. Yesterday, I had a meltdown in the form of some dark chocolate covered see’s caramels and two margaritas, but I’m in the middle of my period and had the worst cramps. I’m only human. These things happen. Back on the wagon today.
I hope everyone’s doing well and surviving the holidays!
