Duckies!

Prometrium continues to kick my ass.  I spend the day yawning, uncoordinated with heavy limbs, misspelling words and horrible typos.  Not exactly great for a productive work day.  But I'm here and I'm doing my best.  Yesterday was a zoo for me but it was all face-to-face work, a lot of mentoring people on different things and a quick, casual presentation.  I can usually draw up a little more energy around people although those who know me well have commented on me looking tired.  All for a good cause.

I am still enjoying hanging out with my embryos.  We give rubs good morning and good night, we talk about the like it's real and they are there.  I like that.  In past cycles, I've rarely been surprised by a pregnancy test result.  Between my breasts and some internal awareness, if I'm not sure then I might pass but with really low numbers.  Things are starting to feel promising.  My breasts are not the same size, it's not so much to be noticable in clothing but if you knew to look, it might be now as I think the right side is getting bigger still.  My nipples are getting bigger, also a good sign, but there are a few other changes I usually see that aren't there.  It's early still, but when I see that, I'll feel more secure.

So Sunday in between boughts of sleepiness, I worked on that night gown.  It's now at a point where I can (and did) wear it.  I will get Mr. Lina to take some pictures because it's not too revealing and he seems to want to play around with a new lense he bought.  I just have to shorten one strap first.  I did not pay attention to where I was sewing in the straps and it's quite hilarious right now as the right side is a good 2" higher than the left.  There are aspects of it that I'm embarassed to say I sewed and if this was not nightwear, it would never leave the house, but I got to a fuck-it point.  I don't care about the parts I had to zig zag over to close the raw edges because it's wearable and done and I like the quirkiness of it.

And just so there are some pictures...  Not too far away from us is a park following a creek.  There are 3 sets of ducklings this year so we've been going for walks in the evening to see them grow.  Mr. Lina took the camera with him and this is the family he got to see that day.

  1. A good cause indeed! I won't say I hope you feel better because I know it's all part of it. :)
    Cute ducklings. Best part of spring.

    1. That is exactly the right sentiment, it really is part of it and maybe it sounds like whining but I mean it more in a statement of fact.

  2. Love the ducklings. I'm glad you are feeling the way you are feeling since it means what it means (what a weird sentence). Sending good thoughts your way!
