More yoga

Lately I feel like a new person. I remember the sad, stressed, grief-filled days of May and June and I still clearly remember the fear and anxiety and pain surrounding the miscarriage, but my mental and emotional state is so vastly improved it almost seems that the depressed, tense creature of recent weeks wasn't even me. It also helps that my in-laws have been gone for two weeks now and we've had a chance to get back to regular life, finally. However, I give my new yoga classes a huge part of the credit. I might sound like an infomercial, but it seems that yoga has changed (at least a few aspects of) my life. I've gone to 12 classes in the last 22 days, which works out to about a class every other day (though in reality I've skipped a couple days and then gone several days in a row) and the feeling of well-being and balance are really impressive so far. Unfortunately, I haven't yet lost 20 pounds, but I certainly feel lots better and perhaps long-term I'll also see some movement on the scale. You know, as if I ever got on a damn scale.

Tomorrow's my progesterone test. After which point we'll have all the information we're going to get before we decide when to start ttc again.


  1. I used to teach yoga and love it so much. It is something that I miss with the bedrest. I'm so glad that you discovered something that is giving you such peace and balance! That is wonderful!

  2. I'm so glad you're feeling better! I've done yoga a few times, but always felt silly doing it. Maybe I'll try a class, rather then doing it at home. We'll see. I hope you continue to feel better and see a difference.
