My students got 3rd place!

I slept in for about an hour today after getting back into town at 12:30 am last night with my students. Yesterday was state championships and I am so proud of them! The received 3rd place/ the bronze medal for their performance. They have com such a long way this year and have worked so hard to achieve this! They totally deserved this and I hope they are loving the feeling of success!

Yesterday was a long day, we got to the show site @ about 11:30am, they performed at 1:30pm and then we had to wait for awards which were at 8pm. We also got to see many very skilled groups from all over the state.

I am officially on my period now and am wondering if my doctor was accurate in her interpretation of what is going on with my body. First thing she said is that I am not ovulating though my chart clearly shows ovulations occurred, next she says I need to force my period so they can measure my estrogen levels during my period. She gives me hormones to for my period to come that I will need to take for 10 days, I take on pill before bed and at 4 am I wake up with my period… So I am wondering if my cycles are happening as normal but just over an extended amount of time. Any thoughts?

So, I have been instructed to not take the pills that cost me $40 since my period is now here. Monday I will have more blood drawn and then I’ll be told what the next step to all this is.

I hope you are all having a great weekend, it is warm here so I think I’ll spend some time digging in the dirt and tending to my plants!

  1. Congratulations to you and your students! Great job! As for the whole period thing – well, it is a vicious cycle! Pun totally intended. LOL. Hang in there, and don’t be afraid to ask the doc all kinds of questions especially about any hormones or medications.
