My acupuncturist told me Sat. morning that it looks like someone’s been beating me up the past couple of days. That someone is “life”. About 2:30 Friday afternoon, I started having pain on my left side, went to the bathroom and I was spotting. By a little after 4 (and 1 daycare kid left to be picked up) the pain was strong and constant. I kept it together until little one was picked up and then immediately called my Mom bawling. J was at the bank and cleaning my car out because the guy that bought it was coming to pick it up at 5:30.
I have to say my Mom is the most wonderful, supportive and empathetic Mom I could have ever asked for. I hate, hate, hate living even 30 minutes away from her. I don’t know how I managed spending 12 years 1100 miles away from her. My Sister, Mom and I were supposed to be teaching a Young Living class Fri. night at my Mom’s house and instead of hanging out with 2 of my favorite people I was doubled over in pain with what I can only assume from past experience, was an ovarian cyst bursting. If J hadn’t been due home soon, she would have jumped in her truck and come to my house to take care of me. Who cares that people were due at her house in a couple hours! I absolutely Love that Woman!!! 🙂
Instead, J got home and we decided not to go into urgent care as I am still paying on my ER bill from the last time I had a cyst burst almost 2 years ago before I had insurance. And really, all they ever tell me is that I had an ovarian cyst and it burst. No sense giving them money for that. Instead, hubby brought my oils in, layered pan away and deep relief, and put a heating pad on top of that. It helped, especially if I stayed laying down. By this morning, my stomach was still a bit tender all over, but the intense pain was gone.
Now, here we are, 2 days later, Mother’s Day, and I feel pretty much normal again. Sad and hurt that another IUI went bust, but happy to not be in pain. As I sit here, waiting for J’s family to show up for a bbq that we’ll apparently be having in pouring rain now, I know that I am very Blessed in certain areas of my life. I just wish that God would answer this prayer. Our next step is waiting to hear from the clinic on Monday. The nurse wanted to get me in for an ultrasound late this coming week but I guess the Dr. is out of town so she needs to check with her and see if she wants to squeeze me in on Tuesday or wait for the 19th. I’m hoping she wants to squeeze me in. I’d like to start figuring out if I have endometriosis or not and what our next steps will be. J is all for IVF, I’m not so sure. If any of you out there reading this have been through it, would you mind sharing your story with me?
Happy Mother’s Day to each and every one of you! We may not physically have our babies yet, but they are already in our hearts!
