My period started this morning (sorry--I've never been able to call it "AF"), and for the first time in a long time, I was excited (for anyone who just picked up my blog--my husband was out of the country for five weeks, so I knew that there was no chance of me being pregnant). It was a 30-day cycle, which makes me feel like I'm getting closer to being "normal". My doctor-friend tells me that a normal range is 22-35 days, but you know how sources talk about 28 being the "magic number". I think it comes down to being proud of myself for managing the PCOS. I now recognize that I was eating like crap and not taking care of myself when my cycles were so out of whack. But I was really conscientious of what I ate and made sure to exercise each day this month, so I feel like I "earned" this cycle. Part of me thinks it's sad that I have to work so hard to do what my body should do "normally". But then again, God gave me this body, and I should take care of it, hormone imbalance and all.
Today's blessing is a trip to the dentist. This may sound odd, but it gives me the chance to sleep in and take it slow because it's a mid-morning appointment. So I'll just head into work after it...which means it will be a short day at work so the time will fly by. And before I know it, my husband will be back tomorrow. So yes, a trip to the dentist is a blessing.
