Heeey. Not much going on around here, except that I'm getting back to the grind after my parents left, and I'm on antibiotics because my stupid teeth decided to act up =/ H actually wanted me to go to the hospital on Sunday night because I couldn't sleep, was up pacing because of the pain. It finally subsided enough for me to sleep and I went to the clinic first thing Monday morning.
We're trying to figure out right now if we're going to be taking the bigger apartment next door, aaand I'm waiting for a call back from the hospital to schedule the appointment to take my IUD out. Eek! Still won't be actively trying until July at the earliest, but I'd like to have a cycle or two under my belt first.
QOTW: I have peppers and tomatoes started, and I'm also going to be planting beans. Those are all going on the deck with trellis to climb. In the garden, I'm not entirely sure. I'm thinking I might try pumpkins and melon again. I actually got 2 pumpkins last year, but they didn't fully ripen up by Halloween, boo!
Doing ok. I had to go to the doctor Monday cuz I somehow hurt my foot last week. It's not broke, but they put me in a boot. So that's annoying the shit out of me and keeping my mind off other things. I also got my tattoo last night, part of which includes a symbol of the baby we lost. It hurt so much, but I feel like it's given me a little closure.
QOTW: right now, weeds. Neither MH or I have the motivation to weed it, till it and plant it. Maybe one of these days....

Not doing the best. We have reason to suspect that for some reason the PID came back again. I'm really really hoping that isn't the case because if it is, I'm getting it nearly every 6 months. I don't see how to stop it since we can't find a cause. I'm going to give it a week and then go back to my OB. This is feeling hopeless.
QOTW: lemon balm, tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, peppers, green onions and marigolds.
I'm doing okay. I feel like between the flooding and school being out due to the flooding, and just being stressed I didn't get a chance to really grieve the 3 year anniversary of my first loss. It's hitting me really hard this week. I am mainly doing okay. I am still having intense pain when I ovulate. Like for a couple days after I O. I had a hysteroscopy and everything came back normal. We are going to officially start trying in a couple of months. Not much else.
GTKY: I have absolutely no green thumb. I tried to grow some tomatoes,but its nearly impossible because I forget to water it and deer have eaten away most of my plants. *sigh*
Well, I'm sitting in a Starbucks parking lot drinking a Smores frappucino and delaying getting to work so I can be here for a few minutes. This week was crazy; car issues and schedule changes and late nights etc etc. hoping for a calmer weekend. We're probably taking my parents out to dinner on Sunday but I really need to figure out where and make reservations.
If anyone is on Instagram, laurelbox is doing this series called Motherhood Rewritten. It's about those who need to celebrate motherhood a little differently than Hallmark, especially regarding loss. I haven't been able to read all the stories because it's a little too emotionally heavy for me, but I live that they're doing it and I love all that they're sharing; thought some of you might be interested, too.
TTC-wise we're kind of in limbo. I'm not officially benched but I'd really like to see an RE and get some testing done, but we have an HMO so I need a referral from my PCP and that's not happening quickly. I have a follow up with my MW on Monday because at my u/s for my last loss she saw an ovarian cyst and wants to check on it. She'll also hopefully tell me that she's talked things over with the OBs at the practice and maybe have some testing plans.
i also discovered last week that I have very heavy bleeding during my periods (menorrhagia). Thanks, Internet. I knew it was heavy but never realized that it was unusually heavy. So that's another thing to add to the discussion with my doctors, I guess.

inaya, I have the mirena, and I've basically been period free for a year. I only have a day or two of spotting every 4-6 weeks. That's one thing I'm going to miss, but ah well. Can always have it put back in after =) I've also gotten significantly healthier in the meantime, so I'm interested to see if my shorter LP has corrected itself (not quite LPD, but kind of right on the borderline). I've heard that it sometimes does when you clean up your lifestyle =)

@eliida, the antibiotics finally kicked in and I had a good nights sleep last night. Thursday and Friday nights were rough, because as soon as I got horizontal, the entire right side of my jaw started throbbing. I got 4 and 3 hours, respectively, those nights, and then went and worked a 12 hour shift the next day. I'm freaking out about having surgery in July (11 teeth out... long story, but basically I have shit genetics when it comes to my teeth, so much so that the dentist wouldn't even think about pulling them with me awake), but the past days I've been wishing it was already here =/

@eliida they said they think what I have right now may be a kidney stone (ultrasound to confirm this week), but that they will look into endometritis should the PID occur again. Thank you for the suggestion.

@eliida, Yup, 3 wisdom teeth and 8 others, including 3 in the front =( I have to get a partial plate, but at least I get to keep my 2 front teeth, and the one I already had spent $800 on getting a root canal >.< I will be knocked right out, not even gas, and I get to have 4 days off after for recovery. I have a feeling I'll be eating a lot of soup and pudding...
