Arrived safe and sound in Shanghai!

Arrived safe and sound in Shanghai!

And I'm tired, but I don't feel like anyone punched me in the stomach - thanks to my lenten prayer buddy for any extra help!  :)  Also, I took/am taking those homeopathic jet lag remedy things.

It is ~CD27 (since I sort of skipped half a day, it is really CD26.5, but let's not get too wrapped up in these things), and no spotting yet, that is a good thing!  I am hoping my cycle is at least longer this time!  :)

Ok, a long shower and to bed with me!

I woke up at 4am, but I am satisfied with my sleep - it was mostly a full night.  I stayed in bed until 5am, then I got up and did my Luteal Phase yoga, then I went to the gym, now I'm back and showered and have SO much time to do makeup and get dressed for work before heading down to breakfast!  Hah - I sort of like these early mornings.  4am is obvi too extreme, but I don't mind waking up at 5am to do so much stuff before going to work.  And seriously, the workout has made me feel excellent.

No spotting yet.

Update - CD28:
At about 4pm I started to feel sketchy at work, and was clearly braindead the rest of the day.  I had a massage before dinner - was really good, started to feel like jelly.  I'm trying my dardest to stay up until 10pm tonight.

No spotting yet.

Update - CD29:
Jet lag has caught up with me!  I was up at 2am this morning, couldn't fall back asleep!  I did manage to get to sleep around 6am, only to be woken up by my wake up call at 7am.  D'Oh!  I was sooo tired this morning (a bit of coffee really helped).  I made it through today, now I'm at the 5pm sketchy-head time.  2am was NOT COOL.  We're going out to dinner tonight with some coworkers in a cool part of Shanghai, hopefully I can keep it together!  :)

Spotting.  That's ok, she held off as long as she could.  And this afternoon I'm having some massive potentially-endo-related pains.  Booo.  It is making me walk funny.  I am going to pass it off as related to the massage...? 

Some random notes to related to comments:
-I will be in this time zone for 3 weeks
-No time to adjust getting back!  I'm totally screwed!
-Dr T since November 2010. 
-Thanks for the lap advice, JB!  Nice to know it isn't a big deal, I am slightly worried. I am going to try and persuade Dr Awesome to do one. 

So CHINA blocks blogger, so I am only able to post through trickery!  So I can see your comments, but I can't comment.  Sheesh.


  1. So glad that you're there safe and sound!

    Hopefully you'll be able to post more while you're there!!

  2. So glad to hear that your there and that the Jet Lag is not as bad as you thought!! I can agree with JB, the lap is also way better then I thought it would be. I didn't LOVE it, but I was back to work quick (and I teach fitness!!)

  3. Glad you got there safe! The time difference is a mess...I hope you adjust soon! Sorry ab the spotting...hope the cramps aren't that bad.

    Have a good trip and looking forward to hearing updates from China!
