It's Been a While

Oops, didn't mean to let so much time pass between my last post and well, this new post. It's been a pretty uneventful week or so in which I battled progesterone side effects. Sore boobs (now gone), massive headaches (now gone), massive nausea (residing) and diarrhea (also residing). Oh,I've been a joy to be around. This morning was supposed to have been my beta - oops didn't make it to the clinic on time. Like I told H., if it was a + today, then it would still be a + tomorrow and same goes for a -. Whatev. The good thing is that I know that I respond to progesterone. No breakthrough bleeding whatsoever which is nice.

In other news, I have been taking a knitting class to learn how to knit a sweater. It has been awesome. So far I have the back of the sweater and one sleeve completed. The best part is that I have learned some tricks of the trade for undoing mistakes without a lot of frustration and increasing/decreasing the number of stitches. I've also learned how to read a pattern properly. At first when I read the pattern it was like reading Chinese. Now, I'm all good. I'll try to take some pictures to post as I go along. It feels like such an accomplishment knitting something that's not square or rectangular.

Well, that's pretty much it for now. I will update tomorrow with the results. I'm going to talk to H. about taking next month off from the clinic. My cycle is usually all wonky from the progesterone, so I will take the opportunity to jump back on the fitness wagon. From a weight stand-point I haven't really gained or lost anything recently. I need to get my caboose in gear.

Good luck tomorrow with your beta! I'm keeping everything crossed for you!
Please post a pic of the sweater when it's finished. :)

Of course I hope your beta surprises you tomorrow, but I have to say that I love your attitude just the same.

I agree with Spacey. I would love to see a pic of the finished product or even pics taken during the process.

I am dying to learn to knit! I'm so jealous!!! And I, too, commend you on your laissez-faire attitude towards your beta and am crossing toes and fingers for you tomorrow!
P.S. YES, it was the Leafs home opener!! :-)
