Okay so this post will probably contain a lot of different random things. I just wanted to give some friends/family a quick update. School has started and so far so good. I have had a lot on my mind and other things going on that I feel like I haven't really been paying attention as much as I should. But I will get there :)
This past week has been crazy hectic and exhausting trying to figure out what has been going on with me. About a week ago I started feeling weird stirrings and tightenings down in my lower right abdomen/uterus area. It didn't hurt but felt strange. Monday it remained all day and started to feel uncomfortable. Justin had me concerned that it was my appendix so at about 11 pm, after not being able to sleep, we headed to the ER. They ruled out my appendix and and ectopic pregnancy (this one made me laugh, as if I could be pregnant, I mean really?) I wasn't experiencing any other symptoms and the pain wasn't extreme and since I knew I had cysts on my ovaries, the doc assumed it was a cyst that was inflamed or something. So we left the ER at about 5:30 that next morning and needless to say I skipped class and slept. The pain didn't change much Tuesday, still there, still annoying, but no other symptoms. I took the pain pills the doc gave me and they didn't do squat. Wednesday the pain increased and started radiating to my right hip/side and to my lower back, by Wednesday night I hurt so bad, but still no other symptoms. I had read it was common for women with inflamed cysts to use a heat pack and that made them feel better so I headed to bed with my heating pad and it helped a tad but I was still hurting too much to sleep. I was wide awake all night just hurting. Come morning I got ready for school, even though I was exhausted I didn't want to miss another day of school. So as I am sitting in class my pain is going crazy and I get reallly nauseous and light headed and broke out into a cold sweat and my limbs turned to jello. This definitely wasn't normal so once I was out of school Justin and I went back to the ER. We waited 3 hours and I still wasn't close to seeing the doctor. My pain was starting to subside and I had a paper due that night that I hadn't started so we left. I figured if it gets bad again I can always go back.
I have an appointment with my new ob/gyn in about a week and a half and these are things I will talk to her about. This feels differently than things I have felt with PCOS before and I am concerned it might be something like endometriosis. With those of you who have endometriosis, please give me any info or experiences you have and whether you think this sounds like it? Please and thank you!
So something else that happened this week is I started bike training with Rufus Racing. Wahoo! I am finally starting this process and I am really excited :) I know I will lose every race but I am going to do it! They also convinced me to start swimming, but mostly just for good cross training and a more well rounded exercise regimine. Plus it will help me swim better because I only dog paddle right now lol
Also, I had a dream last night that I had a daughter. In this dream it was like she just came to me over night and she was already a year old or so. Through this whole dream I kept thinking, "I don't want to be a mom yet" or "I feel nothing for this child". And I am pretty sure this dream summed up my fears I have been having in general about this whole trying thing again....maybe I will feel better after my ob/gyn appointment...
Also, congratulations to my sister in law who had her baby the other night! She is beautiful and I can't wait to meet her!!
Okay there is my randomness for the day. Have a good weekend and thanks for reading!
