wet towels = no shower!

So I'm just waiting to take a shower. I'm gross. Go, dryer, go. After that, I'll peel Noah away from Dora and Diego long enough to sucker him into the car. Then off to the commissary we go. (grocery store on base) And I really wanted to be gone long before now, because it's supposed to rain again today. A lot I think. It really has been beautifully stormy in the afternoons. I get such a great view from my patio! But someone got struck by lightening down the beach from us. and died. Really sad. Someone on a vacation with his family. How sad is that?? Man.. The lightening is pretty fierce. Dangerous.
Which reminds me of a couple of great photos I got of it the other night.
There was a distant storm. I set the shutter at 30 seconds. I am amazed at the power of a tripod! Unbelievable.

Hopefully I'll be having a baby next year! I'm starting clomid next month. Crazy. Crazy. I'd be ok with twins. There is just a slightly higher chance of those. But it may not work at all..... ahhh.. so we will just see. I've lost a few pounds with metformin and a lower GI diet. (glycemic index) This week I'm kind of struggling. I'm craving sweets. I know why though--we went out of town and I stopped the metformin for a couple of days. It can cause a little tummy trouble. And well, that would be a big hassle out of town. So now I'm paying the price. It's not as strong in my system and not combating the insulin thing. I was doing really well. And I'd also started an interval running program. I'm getting back to that. It feels really good to sort of take charge of my body again. Especially since I now know that I CAN take it back. It's something I felt very helpless about before. And self-loathing about. But it wasn't *just* my conscious decisions. It was bad wiring.

So... ok. I think it's ok to throw out some baby names now! Since I'm being optimistic :)
These all happen to be for girls. Though I don't know WHAT I'd do with a dramatic emotional little person. :)

Hopefully I don't need all those names ;) But Kate (with 8 and no Jon) has PCOS too! I think she used injectibles though.

Ok. ready or not. I'm taking a shower. damp towel is better than no towel.

You aren't alone, I have PCOS and I am also taking metformine in hopes of getting pregnant. I am awaiting more blood work results which will determine if my doctor will start me on Clomid or if she will send us to the Women's Reproductive Center for an IUI. Either way, it is a very exciting but stressful time for us. I will keep you in my prayers and HOPEFULLY we will both be having babies next year! :o)

Jennifer I had no idea! Good luck to both of us :)

You are my Sunshine! said...

I like Shelby Leigh, although Azalea is very interesting. I might steal it...haha!

No stealing! Unless you have another baby before me. All's fair in ovulation and fertilization. ;)
