I postponed this update until after my period so you would get the most up-to-date information. Looked over my 2-month update before writing this and just realized that I lost track of a period. I vaguely remember having one at the beginning of the month but really didn’t write much about in my composition notebook. I had several other things going on at the time. Incredible how my periods now are in the background. I attended a dinner with my husband on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed myself (can’t beat that good food + great company combo). It’s incredible that I don’t have to rearrange my life anymore. My periods and these dang fibroids are no longer a major focus. Wow.
Details of my most recent period:
Friday, October 27, 2006: Cramping and spotting starting that morning. Bleeding became heavier as the day progressed but still not that much more than spotting. Ended up taking a total of four 200mg over-the-counter Motrin during the whole day. (This was exactly the same as my last update.)
Saturday, October 28, 2006: Cramps were more painful (still moderate) and the bleeding slightly heavier. I would characterize the bleeding as light to moderate. This was a five 200mg Motrin day. I took the extra Motrin so I could enjoy the food (and company) at the dinner. 😀
Sunday, October 29, 2006: Light cramps and light bleeding (slightly more than spotting). No Motrin.
Monday, October 30, 2006: No cramping but light spotting most of the day.
I am feeling well. Haven’t noticed very much of the weird calf/ankle/foot swelling on my right side but, then again, I haven’t been working out very much. Yes, I’ve been a bad geek. I really need to get back on track with my exercising. Want to start talking about fibroids and weight gain and subsequent weight loss. It’s coming. I promise.
