It's been a long while! and Beware...hormones are raging!

I can't believe another month has come and gone and its ICLW time again. I love this time of the month, but with school back in session and hubby's college classes starting again on Monday... I'm not sure how successful I'll be in posting. Nothing is going on infertility wise in my life AT ALL. Some days, like today I hate myself for continuing to put it off, but we really have no choice. The closes RE is 90 minutes away at least and in a different state, we have no money for any sort of treatments, and John MUST finish school before we go there. (Like my justifications to myself?)

Today's been a crappy day. I'm at the point in the school year (8 days in) where I DESPERATELY miss my last year's class, and don't want to deal with (this year I don't know how to deal with) all the challenges this new group of children bring. Don't get me wrong, they're great kids and I know I'll feel the same way next year about that class just like I feel this way ever year about my new class, but gosh, today really sucked!

I think there must be some major hormonal changes going on inside my body right now...I'm either laughing yelling, or crying hysterically. It's a good thing my husband isn't home. I think he would banish me to my room! But maybe that is the best place for me.

Anyway, I have my yearly appt. on the 24th of Sept. I have some questions about why I've gained weight since I've started walking every morning... It's a little concerning to me only because it's the first time I've gained weight since being treated for PCOS with met.formin. Not to mention its the first time I've done any type of regular exercise at all in a long while. Even if it's not very much it's gotta be better then not doing anything right?

Welcome to all the ICLWers... Most of the recent posts that are up should be introduction types from the last few months. I'll try and catch up on all our travels before school started soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Sending you hugs.

I hear you on the mood swings and hormones, thats me lately and for reasons unknown!

As for missing last years class, just think fast forward to this time next year and you'll feel the same about this group of students!


Sonja said...

I hope you can get some answers about the weight gain!

Take care,

Happy ICLW!

We're sorta in the same boat, no treatments until SO graduates. GAH! We're just beginning 2nd year of his PhD program.

Hoping for things to look up for you!!!

I have a good friend with IR, PCOS. She's told me the side effects are pretty brutal.

Hope time moves quickly until graduation.

Weight loss when you have PCOS is proving to be science defying activity for me. I just don't get it. I look foward to hearing what your RE thinks about it.

Lee Family said...

I still have another week plus until I start to wish my students were like last semester's students. But I know it'll happen.

Kristin said...

Good luck getting the weight thing figured out.

Hope your school year settles down and you can begin enjoying the year. {{{Hugs}}}

Beautiful Mess said...


I can't imagine all the stresses and feelings surrounding a new school year for you. I've talked to many teachers and they all feel the same way! I hope your class this year is AMAZING!

Good luck at your appointment. I hope they have the answers to all your questions.

I was going to say something to the effect of "I bet you say something like that every year" but then you said pretty much the same. LOL.. and remember that muscle weights more then fat so you may gain weight, it's more about your inches and how your clothes fit. (I bet you've heard that though.. lol)

Happy ICLW :)

Jen said...

I hear you about starting the new school year! It's always so hard getting used to a new batch of students, but then we love them just as much as the last by the end of the year...only to lose them again! Vicious cycle!

Hope that you get the answer to your weight gain. Could it just be that you are building muscle by walking?

LOL on perhaps needing to be banished to your room...I usually banish myself!

Stopping by from *ICLW*.
LOVE your blog background. So pretty. Hormones totally suck. I feel you on the emotional roller coaster ride. Hope it gets better for you soon.

Mrs. Gamgee said...

I totally hear you on hormonal emotions... I really wish men coud experience it just once. I hope things at school settle down for you quickly.
