Well Nick is home safe and sound! He has such an intense fear of flying that it actually makes me nervous for him to be in a plane. I know it is how phobias work, but he just seems so SURE that he will die in a plane crash...needless to say I breathed a sigh of relief when he called from the airport at 11:30. He made it back to the house around one in the morning, so it made for a late night. He is now home enjoying a much needed day off work!
I officially started my period yesterday. This is basic hell for me with my endo, but for the first time in a long time I was excited to see it. They made it very clear in our informational session that if we do not start our period this week, we do not get to do our IVF in August. It makes since. They want everything to go according to plan, but that would just suck to be so ready and then have it canceled. I was happy that isn't something we will have to worry about (at least for this reason...unfortunately they can be canceled at any point along the way...). Along with the period has come the cramping, the back aches and the nausea. Toss that in with my constant head ache from the Lupron and I am a real pleasure. I broke down and called the nurse to ask about the pain medicine. They had said to try to take only Tylenol during the informational session, but I needed to know how important it actually was. Like should I miss work because of the pain? She said that it would be 100% fine for me to take the Lortabs while I was on my period, so that was a HUGE relief. It took me from near tears to completely manageable pain in about forty five minutes. Let's just hope this is the last period I have to deal with for a LONG time!
