Hi! I went to the dentist this week and it was good news!
After all the grinding and filing of my teeth (not the good news), I told her that, so far, the trays have only been tight the first day and then it feels like nothing is happening. She explained that the adjustments are smaller this time around so it won't feel like that big of an adjustment. Then she dropped the (good) bomb on me - we can do this quicker, and instead of switching trays every ten days, I can bump it up to SEVEN!!!!
YAY!! So now I will be done with this phase on June 29th instead of August 4th. Please, holy Mary mother of GOD, let this be it!!
