Health Updates, CD 6 & Adios
- For the past two cycles my menstrual cramps have been around a 2 or 3 on a scale of 10. That’s a crazy change from the “8 or 9, miserable, I have to wake up C.J. in the middle of the night because I’m in so much pain” cramps. The same awful cramps I’ve had month after month, year after year.
- Finally, my follicular phase BBT temps are over 96.5, most of them near 97!!! They have always been super low and I’ve been excited to see them slowly increase!
- As I mentioned before, I have only had a handful of headaches over the past 4 months, compared to the 3-4 I used to have a week.
- Still no allergies for either C.J. or I!
We just completed our initial 12 sessions of acupuncture, but we are going to keep going. I love our RA and she has totally joined us on this journey. It’s nice to see how much she cares and is fighting with us! Instead of taking all the vitamins, we have limited what we are taking and introduced herbs instead.
Today is CD7, which means I could have done the HSG this week (AF came early). My ob said to go ahead and get it done before I leave, but a little light bulb went off that due to my colposcopy procedure I’m not allowed to have anything inserted in me (for lack of better word) for a month! My ob was glad I remembered and we will just stick to the plan of waiting until June. I still need to check to see if insurance covers any of it (doubtful) and how much it will be before I proceed with getting it done.
And on that note.. Adios! We are leaving for Mexico tomorrow for a 6 day date! We are looking forward to lots of rest and quality time together! If you want to see an abundance of pictures of food and drinks and beach you can stalk me on instagram or facebook! And, if you have any good sermon recommendations, please send them my way. Although I haven’t posted one in awhile, I’ve completely exhausted all sermons from my favorite churches and I would love new pastors to listen to!
