usually I am a big believer in birthday parties with balloons, cake,
and the whole mess, but not this year. I can't really put my finger
on why I felt this way, but It really just did NOT feel like a birthday.
I think it all started when I woke up with a pounding sinus headache,
then instead of sitting down with a nice cup of birthday coffee, sat down
to a big steaming cup of the worst tasting herbs ever! Really, they are
disgusting, I can't even describe it in a way that would do it justice.
So after choking down the herbs I had to take my antibiotics, drink
5 glasses of water and head to the clinic for a full bladder ultrasound.
Then it was time for work, which I love...most of the time, I really
should have known better then to teach back to back pre/postnatal
fitness classes on my 31st birthday after a trip to the fertility clinic.
The first class I teach is full of newborns so it's hard to stay too grumpy
for too long cause they are so FREAKIN cute, but somedays it's hard
not to bursting into tears and run out of the room. The prenatal class
is usually a bit easier because the baby cuteness is hidden behind a big
pregnant belly, but I could still end up crying most days, depending on
my mood. They did bring me some fudge as a b-day gift, so again....hard
to be grumpy for too long.
Things did get better after I got home from work though, my husband
had dinner ready for us and there was a BIG bouquet of flowers on the
table. So sweet he is, but despite his best efforts, I still wasn't feeling it.
I guess with the events of the day and the looming HSG, I just couldn't
get into it. I requested a Birthday "Do over" for the weekend and hubby
This morning was my HSG, it wasn't so bad, it hurt a lot but only
for a few minutes and wasn't any worse then my period. I would
like to send a shout out to all of you who told me to take 2 advil
before the procedure, I think it really helped. Blogging is good :)
While I was there I asked the Dr. If she had seen the water get
through my fallopian tubes, she said everything was perfect....I got
the "best tube" award for the day. It was still only early but, I'll
take what I can get, the "best tube" award is a very good belated
