Yeah, so that conversation happened. At work. After several inquiries to co-worker friends.
I shrugged it off until I was 11 days late for my cycle.
Concerned, I went to my doctor for blood work only to get the, “You realize there is a .1% chance of you being pregnant?”.
“Yes, yes, yes, I know how effective the IUD is…I just need to know because if I am then changes need to be made to my meds, like 6 weeks ago”. That and I’ve allowed people outside of The Inner Circle get in, thank you so much for being so accommodating. Insert smile HERE.
Husband and I discussed the THE’S to if-I-am or if-I’m-not. It was mostly names and holy-F*#$-I’m-a-gonna-need-to-make-some-changes. Oh, and I’d like to go for my BCBA next Spring and want a baby in my arms shortly after graduation. (Can we insert one of those awkward smile emojis here? …it would fit perfectly.)
A phone call 18 hours later put us on TEAM SQUISHY and gave me the not-so-subtle push I needed to get just tad bit healthier (awkward smile emoji).
(slow carbing it up)
no anything except for vegetables and protein
1 CHEAT DAY (aka heaven)
engorge yourself with whatever you want
(I will be starting my Friday off with a plate of waffles slathered in butter and syrup with a side of strawberries and a plate of scrambled eggs and cheese. Chocolate will be eaten throughout all points in the day. Lunch will involve pizza and fresh mozzarella w/tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette. Oooh, definitely fruit snacks…probably a box of the Triple Layer ones or maybe the Stop n Shop brand (those bring me back to the 90s) Dinner will be pizza. And I’d love to see a bowl of Fruity Cheerios…an apple with peanut butter would be lovely too.
