Friends with Kids

Today I decided I needed to go on a girls trip. 

Today I counted my friends who would be able to actually go on said trip.

I counted 1. 

Everyone is either pregnant or has multiple children. 

Lesson of the day: I need some new friends.

LOLFOOD and an update

No food log for the weekend. 

Most of it was paleo/g-free besides the fried pickles I had when we went for Crawfish. Shockingly I felt ok. I thought I would pay for it HARDDDD that night. But nope! Felt A-ok. On Sunday I made some really delicious pancakes! I made up the recipe myself and they actually turned out really fluffy. The hubz was pleased! So I share the recipe here with you all! 

Paleo Banana Pancakes. 

  • 1.5 cups almond flour
  • 2 med bananas mashed
  • 3 eggs at room temp
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted or grass fed butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda 

mix everything together use 1/4 cup to measure out each pancake. Should make about 8-10 decent size cakes. If your batter is too thick for your liking add a bit of almond milk or coconut milk. I sprinkled on some organic blueberries before flipping to the 2nd side. Serve with maple syrup or honey. 

Operation sore boobs has continued into this week. I am still on CD 21. No where close to getting my period. No clue what is going on there, unless of course it is my lovely right ovarian cyst making itself known. (The doctor finally called and said it should resolve on its own and I repeat the US again in 3 months..that is good news!) I was feeling really PMS-y on Friday night and part of Saturday. Who knows my cycle could be changing again with the use of DCI? I usually have sore boobs a few days before my period but this is now about 5ish days that this has been going on. 

I went to a meditation class over the weekend at my yoga studio, it really helped with the stress level and has helped me come to terms with dealing with most of what has been going on. I am working on healing my body and I can’t expect immediate results. It will be a slow process but I have to remain positive and hopeful! I also have to remain SANE above all things. When I stress I tend to make myself physically ill. I can’t be doing that anymore. I am in a pretty good mood this week! I hope it continues! Last week was really hard for me, but I am over it and ready to move forward. 

I wanna YELL

I got my results back after yesterday’s ultrasound. (which was a whole ordeal BTW but I am over it)

I actually haven’t had the CALL from my doctors office yet, but I work for a doctor who is affiliated with the hospital where I had my test done so I downloaded my report.

Over all I do have cysts, left more so than right but the right has a 2.4 cm complex follicular cyst. This would explain the stabbing pains and barftastic feeling I have had for the past few days. I am not really sure what the plan of action will be. I am guessing these go away on their own from what I have been Googling. 

I am really just pissed off. 

I feel like I have wasted an entire year. Partially because my old doctor refused to order any diagnostic tests (including blood work) and said I didn’t need any medication. I clearly need to be on something for the high testosterone and to shrink the cysts. But she was like ” NO! CLOMID ALL THE THINGS!”. I am not 100% opposed to Clomid, I just don’t think I am ready for that yet. I seem to be chomping at the bit about getting pregnant, but I am so not ok with all the things that come along with taking Clomid. 

Whenever I read about PCOS it makes me confused, I don’t have a lot of symptoms. I have normal (mostly regular) periods and I guess the an-ovulation. I am not significantly over weight because I really watch what I eat and work out. I don’t have body hair or acne. I feel NORMAL. I feel healthy!  It is hard to believe what you can’t see sometimes. 

I really want to do this the natural way with out strong drugs or fertility medication. I know it is going to take time and a lot of serious documentation on my part. I just can’t lose sight of the end goal. All of this will pay off one day and it will be worth it. My next doctors appointment is on April 28th. I really hope the DCI is working and if it isn’t I am ready to move on to something else. 

Patience is clearly not a virtue I possess right now.

2 friends and one is having twins. 

I am also going to a baby shower on Sunday.

My nerves….My nerves.

Insurance is a JOKE

a very unfunny joke. 

I have a ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow. The financial people from the hospital just called and said it will be $800 with insurance. LOLNO. I told her um…yeah I have paid cheaper being self pay. She goes OHHHH, then it will be $225. Better but still LOLNO. High way robbery I tell you. Having insurance does absolutely NOTHING. 

Yeah. 

My doctor is head of the OR over there and I name dropped like a mother effer and got just the transvag for $111.00. Finally working in healthcare pays off. 

Here is hoping to NO CYSTS! 

Barftastic

I don’t know if it is because I finally added prenatal vitamins to my regimen, but last night and all day today I have been wanting to barf with a bad headache. I did buy the iron free because iron is the devil and makes me want to die. 

I had a pinched nerve in my neck last week that is slowly wearing off and I am still having some pain but damn, that should be done already. I really don’t think it is related. I did  have some pretty hefty R ovary pain yesterday afternoon and into the evening. I am continuing the OPK’s and they have been pretty uneventful until today. I am using the Wondfo’s that I ordered off Ebay. Those things are tricky little bastards. I did get two lines way darker than the Dollar Tree tests. I even showed a friend and she immediately remarked that they were darker. Today is CD14, so am I O’ing? Who the fuck knows. I am getting really irritated with these damn tests. I will test later on this evening and see what it says, but the plus side is that they seem darker. Maybe I am getting close? Or maybe I did O on day 9. I guess we will just have to BD tonight even though I am reallllllly not feeling it.

This was suppose to be a post about me wanting to barf and it quickly turned into OPK rant. lol. 

Anyone have any experience with Wondfos?
