Yet another restaurant experience this evening that helped solidify the running joke hubby and I have going. We aren't quite sure why, but the hostess always seats us smack dab in the middle of the crying baby section. Previously we used to think, well it's Texas and everyone has babies. However, each time we look around and see there are plenty of other tables in areas where all the other child-free parties are seated.
Clearly the service industry knows what they are doing when they strategically place all of the highchairs in one specific section. The one year old across from us had a total meltdown, which spread like wildfire to the adjoining table and their baby, and the next half hour was spent trying to appease the poor little souls. I could tell the parents of the "good baby at first" were kind of annoyed that the "meltdown baby" rubbed off on their perfect little child and that they were now also parents in the restaurant with the screaming kid. The only thing I can compare it to is when a dog starts barking in the neighborhood and before you know it, you've got barking coming from all angles, and there is no end in sight. We were surrounded by a total of 3 crying baby tables tonight....all directly next to us. I think maybe God is just trying to train us now for what we're in for...
This picture says it all! Seriously though, we know what we are in for, and we still want it more than ever. We just think it's rather ironic that is ALWAYS happens this way. A tiny little part of me gets envious, because it does kind of make me feel like I'm the only woman in the world without a baby or kids. Hopefully we can be admitted to the cool club sometime this year, even if it does mean we'll end up being the parents of the screaming kid at the restaurant. Bring it! haha!
I'm 6 or 7 dpo today, which means IF there is a little fertilized egg moseying towards my uterus, it will be looking for a nice cushy spot to implant itself very soon. It could happen today or as late as Friday (10dpo) or possibly a tad later, although that would be more the exception than the rule.
I had an acupuncture apt. today to assist my energies to flow in all the right directions, and left feeling absolutely amazing. There was a point right in the top of my head that had some "release" meaning it bled a little when the acu removed it. She was all excited and said that acu's love seeing that, because it means that a blockage was released during the treatment. That is what acu is all about; removing blockages where there aren't supposed to be blockages and making connections that haven't been made...in short at least. I will go back Friday for a 10dpo session as well. I am trying to make the most of this promising cycle. I'm under orders to keep my feet and back warm (liver and kidney energy) and to eat warming foods to keep my belly nice and warm.
I've been such a good girl; Only one glass of wine the whole time I was traveling last week, doing Circle + Bloom meditations daily, doing daily devotionals with Joel Osteen's new series "I Declare", doing acu, and eating warming foods. More than that, I'm just staying really positive and focusing on what IS working. For me, that is the fantastic progesterone response I believe I'm having right now. The Prometrium is going well. No real side effects, other than the fact that I'm really tired all the time from it. One more week and we'll know if we are blessed enough to become parents!
