A Little About Me, A Little About Her

ME:  So today is CD 1, yesterday was CD 189 or something crazy like that, to be honest I had simply stopped counting.  This is however the first CD 1 of 2010 for me.  For those that don't know about PCOS and keeping detailed track of your menstrual cycle, CD stands for Cycle Day and for "regular" women on a 28 day cycle, they rarely go over CD 28 without running for a pregnancy test.  For those of us who are irregular due to PCOS, going past CD 28 is normal.  CD 1 is the first day that "Aunt Flo" arrives.  For most women most of the time this is nothing discussion worthy.  For a PCOS woman who is not on cycle regulating medications, CD 1 is an odd joy - for me it serves as a reminder that my body does know what it is supposed to do occasionally, it is validating of my femininity (which is something that PCOS robs most women of) and yes, it is also a pain.  Heck, even the PMS is exciting!

Aquatica, The Park and More!

Last weekend we went to Trotwood Park with some other good friends - LeeAnn, her husband Brian and their gorgeous babies.  It was a new park for all of us but we all agreed it is a really great park.  The kids ran around and climbed and swung and wore themselves out before we all went out to lunch.  It was so great to see them and now that Reagan can actually play…
