April TTC Update

Luana Cardenas4 Comments

So I know I've been neglecting the blog lately. There hasn’t really been anything to write about. And I would be lying if I said my spirits haven’t been a little depleted. This waiting to get pregnant game is not fun anymore and my “Get fit for pregnancy” fire has been completely put out. I mean, not even a little spark. It is so hard to stay active when you absolutely hate working out. Im disappointed I'm still struggling with this knowing that working out directly benefits my chances of me getting pregnant and staying pregnant. I don't know what is wrong with me sometimes.

All I do lately is get home, whip up a quick meal and go to straight to bed. It also doesn't help that the husband and I have been completely obsessed with Sons of Anarchy on Netflix not to mention the new season of The New Girl has been updated. My free time doesn't stand a chance. I blame Netflix for my shortcomings.


On another note, I’m so glad April is here! Im contended that another month has gone by and I seem to be surviving. I have my moments, but everyday that goes by is a day closer to being a mom again. 

I wish I could just enter a time capsule and catapult myself two months into the future so Lucas and I can finally start trying again. It is really a shame to waste three perfectly good cycles (Doctor’s orders). I realize how weird that sounds but a "Perfect cycle" is definitely a thing when your every waking moment is spent dreaming about a baby and what it takes for you to get there. Adulting is so weird sometimes.

Forever missing my bump, forever missing my angel.

Meanwhile, I’m starting fertility acupuncture next week and I’m so excited! Have heard amazing things and hoping I can get some good juices flowing and ready for when it’s that special time. Im hopeful in being proactive towards my goals and going to search for some motivation to get back on that elliptical again! 

Do you have experience with Acupuncture?

Can you share some tips on how to stay committed to working out when you absolutely hate ittttt 😩?

Please share 🙌 🙌 !!
