1. The other day we went in to a bread bakery that recently opened. When you walk in you are hit with the most wonderful smell and it smelled so delicious. So we looked around for a bit and DH said he didn't want anything. Since I can't eat gluten we didn't buy any bread. So that night I dreamt that I was baking all kinds of bread, with all kinds of seeds and eating all night. I am usually over gluten, there is always bread for toddler and DH in the home but I never cheat. If I cheat usually it is a few bites of fried chicken that I make for DH. But I guess I can only take so much. Hehehe, I ate so much bread in my dream that I woke up satisfied.
2. Moving on to TTC, I am on P + 7 and has done two HCG injection so far. I had a blood draw today so we shall see where the progesterone/estradiol levels are. I knew that I might start getting pregnancy symptoms because of the HCG but thought much later than P + 7. I have had faint nausea and slightly tender boobs since yesterday. I don't find these symptoms fun. I am assuming it will increase the more HCG I inject. I know that HCG might improve PMS but I don't know if I am ready to trade the PMS with a new set of symptoms. Plus the last few cycles my PMS was at a minimum with out meds but I think that is due to Red raspberry leaf tea I have been drinking for the last two months.
3. Since DH is only working par time in the summer we have been watching the World Cup every single day since it started. This afternoon we didn't know what to do with ourselves since there is no scheduled game. We are loving all the intense games. So much fun and screaming..
4. We have a lot of family drama going on. My sister is filing for a divorce. The spouse is putting the kids in between their fight and it is a sad and dangerous situation all around. You know the things that you thought will never happen in your family and they are slowly unfolding in front of your eyes and you are left with the feeling that you are watching a movie. Oh boy, I am praying for the kids that they come out of this situation sane. It is that serious and it is stressing me out. I am so mad at the parents. Kids are teen and preteen years and are not mature enough to handle all the craziness that is around them. It is very sad for everybody watching and we can't do anything to prevent the situation.
5. During the summer our upstairs get really hot if we don't have the temp way down. So one night we decided to crash in the basement where we watch TV. We put a few comforters on top of thick rug and it has served us so well. In addition to getting a decent sleep in a cool place my back is thanking me. I used to get up in pain and would have to walk around for it to slowly subside but now I walk up stretched. The only down side is the hard surface gives me lower back pain since I have a curved back and not being full supported. I am trying to work around it so that we spend the entire summer in the basement. We will have to change our mattress in the winter and get something very firm.
