I wonder no longer :)

So I did eventually figure out why I was a bottomless pit yesterday!

There is good news and bad news...but mostly good news.

So the bad news is that having the Mirena placed triggered my "time of the month" (TOM). This is bad news because I am nursing and I was REALLY hoping it would stay away for 6 months like it did last time. Oh well. It's not horrible, it's just not great. Good news is that TOM explains why I was starving all day yesterday! It totally makes sense. I had cramps this morning but the other good news is because of the Mirena, TOM is really, really, really light. Like I almost didn't even notice light. I can totally handle this! More good news: the scale showed almost a 3 pound difference since yesterday morning. Which means all the weight I thought I gained was indeed water weight. Awesome! I feel so much better about all this! In the bad news department....I still can't find my other shoe!! Geez!

However, I did go for a short, liesurely walk with the kids. It wasn't much, but at least it was something! I did enjoy being outside. I will try and take them out tomorrow in the new double stroller. I also heard about a 33 Day Challenge that I am absolutely looking forward to! I need to write out some goals for myself and I will post them later tonight. I am really excited to be part of this challenge! I know, I know, I usually hate challenges. I still hate them. This one I willing to go for. Not sure what makes this one different. I do know that I am going to give it all I've got and if I stumble one day then I will move on and try harder the next day. I just really need to find my shoe! Either that or find a yoga DVD to do so I don't need shoes :)

    I'm going to give my experience with Mirena...unsolicited...but if you do have any problems, at least you know it isn't just you :-)

    I don't know if you get migraines, but after having the mirena put in (a friend and I both had it put in after our children)...the migraines were least several a month where as before they were infrequent. The mirena also (at least in our 2 experiences) also leads to a very low sex drive...which I talked to my doctor about and he said "oh no, that can't be just have a young child in the house and it's an adjustment and you're just tired"...

    Ummmmm, well then why did after we each had ours taken out did life return to normal? LOL, male doctors, they just don't understand.

    I hope it works well for you...most people do like it, but if you have problems, don't let the doctor tell you it's in your head.

    That's just my two cents :-) Congrats on the baby :-)
