Today feels like it is just one of those days. One of those days where everything you do seems to just go wrong. I have already been sent into a tear filled moment after spilling my cup of tea all over myself and the floor. The chai tea I had made to try and cheer myself up with. Didn’t work. I’ve just been in a rut all day, I think its thanks to being sick. My bed is already calling my name, and I’ve napped during both of Everly’s naps today. I wanted to do a little craft project this evening but now I’m frightened to even try that for fear of it going wrong. Any ways…
We have Everly’s ten month check up coming up in a few weeks time. Looking forward to seeing where she is at for height and weight. Time is just going past far too quickly, I cannot believe our little lovie is almost 10 months old.
I decided to also book an appointment for myself at the same time. In light of recent posts from several people I know who have problems with their thyroids, it got me doing some research, because it made me have an “I wonder moment”. With all my research into thyroid issues I am wanting to get my thyroid levels checked. Since having Everly I have been dealing with many of the symptoms that tend to be connected to a thyroid problem.
The one symptom that really hit home for me was “struggles with weight”. I have actually struggled with weight issues for most of my life. I have no memories of ever being a small girl. As many know I am trying to get the baby weight off and be healthy, my goal is NOT to be tiny. I do want to be healthier, and happier. For me I was always so happy when I was around a certain size, I have been trying to get back to that and have been struggling so much! I have been trying to get rid of the baby weight and it just has not been going away. Actually, I had lost it, but then I got put on the med for increasing my milk supply and it all came back. I learned that was a side effect of it. I have been working my way to getting off that med for a few months, and the weight just is not going. I have set the goal of the Sun Run and even I am getting apprehensive. Lots to talk with the doctor about.
I am trying to make changes, they say it takes 21 days for a new habit to become the new normal for someone.
I am also asking at my doctors appointment to get sent for a check up for breast health. Whoa, a 25 year old concerned about breast health. You betcha! I have had a label of “lumpy boob” since I was 17. I have everything checked every now and then. It is also part of my nursing struggles with Everly. Since having Everly some things have not returned to normal, so I want to know what is up, and if all is still well. I do know several young women who have had breast cancer. I’d much rather keep being proactive about it.
If you could please think happy thoughts, and also say a prayer for me I’d really appreciate it. I’m hoping everything will go well, and that things will start to improve, and that if there is something wrong that it will be figured out.
Can you tell I am just a smidge overwhelmed today?
