I participated in my first procession this evening! Mr. JB and I attended a K.nights of Co.lumbus organized mass to celebrate the Feast of the Visitation and after mass we processed around the church while praying the rosary (Mr. JB helped carry the statue of the Virgin Mother, I wished that I had a third hand so I could take a photo of the spectacle -- the fourth degree Knights, the statue of Mary, it was beautiful!).
I told my chiropractor that I have felt a psychological shift since my recent surrender -- I didn't give her the details, but she said that she felt that my lower back was so much better. She even said that things are "coming together" and that she's feeling more optimistic about our chances at conceiving.
My chiropractor has been such a big supporter of my quest to get pregnant. She has been treating me since 2003 when I got in to a minor accident that caused a lot of damage to my back and right shoulder. She hasn't asked a lot of questions about Napro, but she totally agrees with the way that I'm approaching my treatment for my IF.
I have been thinking more and more about returning to acupuncture, but this time with my naturopath. I have a really good rapport with her and I think that going to her, rather than the acupuncturist I used to go to will help further my healing process. I just wish that it wasn't so expensive (I know, I shouldn't complain, but I do have friends with health plans that cover it).
I'm also feeling more and more compelled to ask my Napro doc to test my thyroid. The more that I think about it, the more that I believe that it is the missing link in my treatment. I know that my GP completely balked at it, but as my instincts told me that there was something wrong with my ladyparts, I just know that there is something else.
I can't believe that tomorrow is the first of June. Where did the school year go? Unlike last year I'm a bit sad that the year is ending. I've had such a great year with my students and I'm so scared that next year is going to be nuts! In my previous experience every other year is crazy, so I'm bound to have a crazier year in the fall!
Again, I have to remind myself to trust and believe that it will be okay. I got through last year, despite the craziness of my students. If my class next year is crazy, I will get through that as well. I did have a thought today that I really hope that I get pg so I won't have to deal with a crazy class! Now that's a plan, isn't it?
After attending mass and the rosary tonight I'm feeling spiritually recharged enough to deal with the last weeks of school. Now I just need the sleep to catch up so I'm physically capable to make it to June 30th.
Don't worry, I'm not going to start counting sleeps just yet. I'll save that for after my report cards are done!
p.s. This was my 100th post for 2010! That seems like quite a bit of blogging in six months, doesn't it?
