Lucky momma

Dude... this whole eating well thing... it's working! Almost too well, though! Down 2 more pounds since yesterday! So, today, I had two slices of whole wheat toast with 2 tbs. of peanut butter on 1 and Sugar Free trawberry jam on the other with unsweetened green tea for breakfast. I had a repeat of yesterday's chicken balsamic goat cheese salad for lunch and a grande Sugar Free Soy Vanilla Latte from Bucks with one of the moms from my Mom's Group. I also just had a Sugar Free pudding cup. I used a plastic fork, cause all our spoons are dirty... I plan on having a bigger dinner tonight than last night. My biggest fear is that the weight will come off too fast and mess up my milk supply. Also had some Mother's Milk tea last night, and will have some tonight, just to be safe.

Anyway, enough of all that! The mom I had coffee with is 41, and had her baby a few weeks before T.J. was born. She went through ovarian failure, which basically started early-monopausal symptoms. Like at 25. Wacky! But, because she was on the Pill, she didn't know it because she always got her period, thanks to the estrogen in the Pill. So, when she and hubby hadn't conceived after a couple of years of trying, she went to one fertility specialist after another. Only after years and going through her old medical records of bloodwork from when she was hospitalized for pneumonia in her 20s did they realize her issues. How lame! But happy ending, they had IVF using an anonymous donor egg, and their little boy is adorable!

But, it makes me realize, once again, how lucky we are to have our little man. Even though he nurses like a fiend, and won't let me sleep past 7am this week, and my house is wreaked (damn dishwasher people better be here tomorrow!) I would't trade it for the world.
