I thought that I was getting better and I am, the good days definately out-weigh the bad days but my body is telling a very different story…..I have shingles, now maybe not all of you know what shingles is….it starts off as rash and sometimes spreads, sometimes doesn’t and so the rash started on Friday, but saturday I was very sure that something wasn’t right and so I went to the Dr and was told that I have Shingles…here is Dr googles definition: http://www.medicinenet.com/shingles/article.htm for those of you that are interested…

As a result of the shingles, I have been told that all DIY plans are to be put on hold, I am NOT to fall pregnant while I still have the virus and especially not while I am on the anti-viral drugs which are quite strong and playing havoc with my body!

I am slowly on the mend, still feeling quite sore and very sorry for myself but I’m sure that by the end of the week I’ll be better and hopefully 100% by christmas!!

In other news, I am sure that you can all remember this post about a very dear friend of mine who had her baby at the end of July, I phoned her on Saturday to cancel for Sunday’s get-together because her little one is only 4 months old and I’ve been told to stay away from babies and pregnant women. So we chat for a while and she tells me that she’s 9 weeks pregnant again, I nearly fell off my chair.

I am so happy for her, if you can recall she also went to Vitalab, has PCOS and so when she went for her 6 week check up her gynea told her that she wouldn’t conceive on her own so they weren’t using any protection and it just happened! Everything is fine so far and her baby is due 2 weeks before her little one’s first birthday….can you believe it.

I’m okay, I cried for a while once I was off the phone, she said she feels bad becuase of what Frank and I are going through and I love her for thinking of us and I know that this isn’t about me, my life is just different and it’s not her fault. We all have our own crosses to bear and this is mine, it just makes my cross a little heavier and makes me sad but life carries on.

That’s it from me girls, I am thinking of you all over this festive season and hope that you all get through it without too many tears. For those of you waiting for beta’s, I hope that Santa brings you what you are wishing for. For those of you that are taking a break – next year will be better for all of us, we’ll find the strength to start anew.
