It's day 6 of Fitness Cheerleader's August blogger challenge. Today's topic is our highs and lows from the last year.
So, August of last year. It was pretty terrible. I had to quit my running group in the middle of training for the Marine Corp Marathon because it was fantastically obvious that running that much was hurting my chances for having a baby. Looking back, that decision is no less painful. I was holding on to running and training for races as a coping mechanism for infertility. Giving up that crutch was crazy hard. Having no goals for the near future stunk.
October of last year: another low. Surgery for endometriosis. Having my RE tell me to give up on trying to have a baby. Firing said RE and starting over with a new one.
November: LSU beats Alabama by a field goal. Boo - go eat a corn dog, Bayou Bengals.
December: Another failed cycle. Merry F'ing Christmas.
January: Sally the Cyst emerges. But Alabama won the BCS title, so that was a bonus.
March: start our last medicated cycle. Woo hoo, we're pregnant!
April-July: barf city.
Here we are in August, again. I'd say that times change quickly, but the last year dragged on like nobody's business. The good news is that the reason time is moving slowly now is because I'm so anxious to meet our little girl.
Last year was abnormally dramatic. How was yours? Let me know a highlight!
