Sweet September!

This month, one year ago, I found out we were pregnant. I will never, EVER forget that day. It was September 11. I know…., I know it is a horrible day for a lot of people, considering the 9/11 tragedy. For us, it will ALWAYS be THE DAY.

The T was flying out of the country that same day. I remember he wondered a LOT about flying on that date and finally decided to book it. It turned out great because he was going, literally, to the other side of the world, 24+ hours total travel time and the flights were, as you can imagine, ALMOST EMPTY.

I woke up thinking that, finally, after having been cycling again on my own, my ovaries had decided to go on strike one more time and that would be confirming the pre.ma.tu.re ova.rian fai.lu.re dx. I tested because the doctor wouldn’t give any meds to medically induce my pe.riod without discarding pregnancy. Can you imagine the crocodile tears flowing through my face as I saw 2 lines?

Yes, 2 very dark lines, right there

No squint needed

I couldn’t believe it!!!…

And I can’t believe one year has gone by already!!!… I miss my belly, a LOT!

On the nursing front, I’ve been having a hard time lately. With plugged ducts. Oh my, all was going great until about 2 weeks ago that I started to have plugged ducts and now it seems it has become a recurrent problem!!!… I get one every other day and to be honest, I am starting to get desperate. It is really uncomfortable and time consuming to be unplugging ducts so often! Please feel free to share any magic tricks or suggestions.
