Well back from the group meeting – was like going to uni – the whole lecture hall was packed! It was a very informative meeting and as soon as I get my next period I need to ring for my day 2 blood test. I’m a tad confused though because they said that if you get your period after 10am then it’s not considered day 1 or something like that, but shouldn’t matter, I usually have mine before then. They talked about how things work there and the cycles and possible problems. There was a nurse there who spoke about …continue reading
Just thought I’d post to say Hi and do a check in. We have our IVF group meeting tomorrow night and I’m getting rather nervous about all of it. I’m so afraid of the drugs as I’ve had them before and they turned me into a monster and I’ve got permanent damage from them – so am really scared that the same thing will happen again and the damage will get worse. Thankfully the consultant is fully aware of my concerns and has promised his support and monitoring of things. I’m having a hard time coping with not being pregnant …continue reading
Okay I feel like I’m dying or something. Last Wednesday I started getting the cramps and I had such horrible back pain. Then on the weekend the insomnia hit and the headache. Yesterday the period hit full force as did the cramps, the headache, the nausea. Now I just need the hot flashes to make it all complete. I just want to curl up in bed and not move. I wish my doctor would attempt to help me ease the pain with my period, but I think that’s asking for a miracle.
For just over a week now I’ve been suffering from this annoying pain on my left side and lower back that steadily got worse. Not only that but I kept running to the bathroom even if I only drank a thimble full of water. I suspected a kidney infection. I finally made an appointment with the doctor and I saw her yesterday morning and guess what…I’ve got a kidney infection. I went in, did a urine sample, the receptionist dipped the stick in it and asked if i was expecting my period any day now. I said nope not for …continue reading
Right – Time for another entry – this months difficult period is finally over – seemed to go a bit faster this month… I think it went faster as I was less involved due to Arianna’s depression with her period this time- it has meant she has been very quiet compared to normal – makes it very hard to know what she is thinking as she becomes very withdrawn – she also snaps a lot – not a big issue for me. However i feel her family bear the brunt of it – especially since my little miss becomes very …continue reading
Okay well the dreaded period is over…thank god! I’ve still got a bit of pain and such but it’s almost over. Still having some issues with lactating, but right now my biggest concern is that I was a total monster with PMS this time and I’m depressed. Not quite sure if it’s the endo causing the depression or if it’s cause I’m worried about how my life is going to turn out in regards to when I’ll get to be with Michael permanently, but something sure has me depressed. I’m not as affectionate as I normally am and I can’t …continue reading
For me tonight was a better night, though I suspect not for Arianna… Well tonight was a bit different to last night, Arianna was definately in a more cuddly mood, and she was missing having me to hug with etc… After a bit Arianna started to cry but this subsided after a while unlike the previous night, I’ve no doubt she was in as much pain but she seems to cope with it better after a few days, compared to when she was in pain constantly her reactions are more extreme when it starts up again, this is unfortunate – …continue reading
Well, tonight was not a good night for Arianna, she was in quite a bit of pain…. It started for me around 11:50pm when we started talking over netmeeting, Arianna was crying and I couldn’t help being in another country makes it hard sometimes, she has this searing pain down her left side which happens every month due partially to endometriosis and due to stress and the like with mid-terms and stuff, it is very hard on both herself and me unfortunately, maybe when she is in the country with me I can offer more support and be there for …continue reading
