My Dear Friend Comes to Visit

She's here. I didn't really miss her though. She always comes on the weekend... always. The good news is my cycle went from 6/27-7/30! That's 3 days less than last time, and it's been in that range for 4 cycles now! It's the simple things, right?

My hard work is paying off; even if a period still reminds me of the condition I'm not in right now, I'm having one REGULARLY! Maybe, just maybe, I'm on the verge of getting my body in a normal state. That would be awesome!

Also, I'm not bummed about having my period. Major first. Through all of my recent research and study I'm learning just how dangerous I've made my body for a little life. I cleaned out all the conventional cleaners in my house and replaced them with tried and true homemade recipes. I can elaborate later, but I believe that a cleaning product may be to blame for the chromosomal mutation that makes me a carrier for Trisome 13 and 21. My genetic councilor said it happened later in life, and household cleaners contain an ingredient that will damage your genes. Lovely, right?

Gotta scoot. Going to see a sweet friend and her babies today!


  1. Kim,
    I have spent some time reading through your posts and they touch my heart so deeply. I truly know the heartache you feel, especially in regards to church and babies. I have felt all of those same feelings and know they are very real. I am looking forward to following your blog. Let me know if you ever need a listening ear.
