What a wonderful week I am having! I love being engaged! And I love that D loves being engaged – in fact I think I like that even better! LOL
I got a fitting for the making of my ring and pulled a big sad face when the guy said it would be about 4 weeks! Poor guy – he immediately started backtracking saying that would be the maximum time and it might come sooner. It was so funny! He was a good bloke.
Something has shifted in me. I don’t know what. But I’m happier. I’m happy about being engaged. But I’m also happy about work. I’m happy about my headspace. Things just feel better. And the interesting thing is that it started to shift before Valentines Day. It just then exploded forward after that !! LOL!
I’m back to exercising everyday. And I already feel better for it. Consistency is a big key to everything – exercise and food.

I’ve had a few more after affects of the HSG Scan. Both negative and positive.
The negative was a lot of swelling, soreness and discomfort for several days after the BD. (which I have just discovered is short for Baby Dance!) It meant a trip to the chemist and no BD until I was better.
The positive – also in regards to the BD. Lets just say – Oh my God – Wow!! Nothing like a good clean out! :) :)
Okay enough of that now!
This cycle has also been a happy cycle. No tracking. Just chilled and relaxed. In fact, I even thought it was going to be a total wipeout and I wasn’t worried. The swelling occurred close to ovulation time. And as soon as I was feeling better, D came home after kickboxing having damaged his hip. But, as it soons out, we may have made it in just in time. Who knows?! It doesn’t matter.
No stressing. I’m not expecting anything this cycle. It is all relaxed and chilled and we are having a lot of fun together. And enjoying the beginning of this new phase in our lives!
And I know this doesn’t matter at all. And it doesn’t bother me either way. But I am really glad that we got engaged before I got pregnant. There is just something about it – that verbal and also public commitment to each other. I didn’t expect it to make all that much difference to us as a committed couple, but it does. It really really does!
[Did you know that foods that are good for particular areas of the body also have similiar shapes to that part. For example, artichokes are good for the heart, carrots are good for the eyes and when you slice them, they look like an eye. And avocados are good for the womb!]
