Big Sister Wren!?


But before you freak...I'm NOT pregnant.

Not yet at least. that Wren is almost 8 months, it's time to start thinking about baby number two.


Back on the saddle. Soon.

I was sort of hoping that I could just start my existing pack of Glumetza up and get it refilled pretty easily. It expired in April, but I feel like medicine doesn't "really" expire...especially not 2 months after the date on the jar. But I started it, thinking it would be okay. It was fine, but I don't think it was really working. I had zero side effects, which, to be honest, I kind of like having because they keep me on track with my diet.

So I got online to refill my script and discovered that, though I had 3 more refills left, they cancel it after a year. So no go there either.

So I called Dr. Miracles, hoping I'd be able to just get it filled. But she said he would want to see me. He's out of the office for 3 weeks, so the first I could get in is the 26th of July.

At that point, I'm hoping to go back on the Glumetza, start the low amylose diet, and I will start watching my cycles more closely. *Note: I've only had 1 real cycle since Wren was born due to nursing.*

From there, we have a trip to Mexico in September, and it's all inclusive, with 2 other couples, so we decided we'd wait to officially start TTC'ing until after that trip. That way I can indulge in the limitless booze (not that I will...I talk a big game and usually end up drinking like 3 a day...lame), seafood, and possibly an excursion of ziplining or something fun.

And then? I'm hoping, given my past experience on Glumetza, that if I spend July and August preparing my body, that it won't take us too long to conceive. I would like to lose about 20 pounds, if not 30. This is actually quite doable on the diet.

So that's the plan. Now I am off to treat myself to a turtle sundae...gotta get them in while I can!!


  1. How exciting!! Have a great time on your trip...and hopefully Wren will be a big sister before you know it!! :)

  2. Oh this is so very exciting! I hope you have very quick success once you get back on the plan!!!

  3. We're going to start TTC next month. It's feels so weird to be planning to get back into this from where we are ... TTC #2 is going to be different than #1, I think. I want it just as much, but I feel more hopeful since we were successful once. And for some reason that hopefulness is scary.

  4. Yesssssssssss! Congrats girl and yeah for a plan. I have no doubt you can get on track right away - enjoy the fun that is ahead and I can't wait to hear you are expecting again!!! Praying for your journey

  5. You could take some cinnamon supplements until you get the pills you need. I took them for a month before conceiving. Research it a bit. Good luck!

  6. After trying for two years. And being diagnosed with PCOS and Endo. Thought I should add that for some reference.

  7. Super exciting times ahead!!
