Time is Not on my Side

Oh boy, things have been nuts! I have finalized my schedule for the last year of law school (mostly). I've been working at the public defenders this summer for school credit, and have been practicing under the Third Year Practice rule, which has been completely awesome. I've drafted multiple motions and gotten some dismissals. I like everyone I work with and have been learning so much! I took a one week boot camp-style class in June and am waiting for my grade to come through. On top of all that, there is a (small) chance I may be pregnant. I have issues in that area and when I started having symptoms I got a blood test, which was negative but the level was 1, not 0. So I'm not sure if it's a miscarriage or what, but we're waiting another week to test again. Last time I was pregnant I had symptoms almost immediately upon conception, but didn't have a blood test then. It is possible I am just having symptoms so early that I'm ahead of the hcg test. I also know that I have low progesterone levels (hence trouble with conception) and so when the egg is fertilized I get a surge of progesterone and am more sensitive to it than other people. It's a mystery, and completely frustrating.

I'm absolutely exhausted, worried that this may be a pregnancy loss, but really happy with work and school. As soon as we know, I will either begin a new fitness challenge or a new parenting one! We'll see!

  1. Good luck with the baby making! I had to do labs and sonograms and progesterone, so I feel for you!
