Updates

Well, the good news is that blood test results came back and showed that this is more likely tissue remaining from my miscarriage in December. So the doctor prescribed me some medication that I take every 6 hours for 2 days (which means waking up in the middle of the night to take it) which makes me contract and hopefully dispel remaining tissue. The downside is that this particular medication is also one that controls the bleeding. The doctor is concerned that I'm already anemic and have been bleeding for over 2 weeks. So continued blood loss is a negative. Why is this a downside? Because there is a chance my body may not rid itself of all old tissue. Which would mean I would need to have a D&C. More than 3 months later. Ugh. But anyway, I'm just trying to focus on being grateful that it's not a new miscarriage and that one way or another, this is almost over. (Cross your fingers for me, just in case, please!!)

On to other updates, I weighed this morning at 1 pound less than last Wednesday. Yes a pound is good. Yes I usually lose more than that. But I have to remind myself that I had one whole day of really bad eating which caused me to gain like 3 pounds. So technically, I lost that three plus another pound. :) Just gotta be better this week!!

On the running front, it snowed like crazy here all day. So there was no way I was going to run outside. And even if I was, I couldn't put my kiddos through that. So I went to the rec center. They don't allow strollers on their "track" (track is in quotes because it's actually just the basketball court and you run on the outside; small town thing, I guess) so I dropped the kids off at the nursery and headed to the treadmills. The treadmill was SO MUCH EASIER than running outside!! No hills and no 70+ pound stroller to push!! LOVED that! But I missed the fresh air and the challenge of making it up a hill and having the kiddos to keep me company. So I'll keep it going outside and use the treadmill only when the weather is bad. But I have to admit that I'm feeling good! Great, really! Now if I can just get my body back to normal, hopefully I'll be able to push myself a little harder.

Oh! I almost forgot! Tonight we made home made pizzas for dinner. I found a pizza dough recipe...whole wheat healthy dough...that is to die for! I don't think we'll ever order out again! It was so yummy. And SO filling!! Anyway, I'll have to post it soon. Because it will seriously change the way your family does pizza night! ;)

Anyway, I'm off to put the babies to bed. Have a good night!!

I'll be keeping you in my prayers for sure. I hope the medicine does the trick for you without any complications.

I'm proud of you for losing a pound with all the stress you're dealing with. I'm interested in that pizza recipe too. Sounds good!
