Looks like my endometriosis is back with a vengeance. It has taken a nice little break from bothering me ever since I was able to switch birth control from the one specifically for breastfeeding mothers. I am now on one that I can take for three months straight. I have actually been doing that for a long time (like five years) but this was the first pill that actually worked for me. Not in the "preventing birth" sorta way, they have all worked just fine and dandy for that, but in the "preventing cramping and bleeding and all around miserableness for three months in a row" sorta way. But all good things must come to an end, and we hit the end of the three month cycle. There is no getting around a miserable week at least four times a year.
So the cramping has started. The terrible back aches have stared. The being sick to my stomach has started. I was at Babies R Us with my sister (BABBBBEEEEE!!!!) and I started cramping so bad I seriously couldn't stand. I went home and spent the rest of the night laying down. I took my pain medicine and it helped. I woke up this morning feeling worse than yesterday morning, but better than last night. I don't have a lot of hope for the next two days. It just seems hard to imagine how my endo fits in with being Henry's mom. In the old days I would spend a few days in bed laying on the heating pad. That doesn't really fit into my life now. So we will see. Hopefully this wont be a terrible cycle. Hopefully things will be a little more bearable. Hopefully the cycle will be close to over before Friday when I leave to meet my new niece or nephew. Hopefully. Damn endo.
