My throat is sore. J and I both took a look at it this morning and it is raw with swollen tonsils. This makes what? 3 or 4 days of this? If I still have it when I get back from San Juan I'll make an appointment to get it looked at.
I'm feeling quite miserable. I really watched my food intake yesterday and some how I gained back 0.6 pounds of the 2 pounds I lost in two days. It had to be the low sodium nuts. I ate half a can and at 45 mg per serving and 4.5 servings I guess my body decided to revolt. I knew I was sodium sensitive but not that sensitive.
I can still lose weight easily enough if I just watch the sodium. I can eat piles of junk food as long as the sodium content is low. My doctors do know about this problem with my body. It is most likely the reason why I have high blood pressure.
This cycle, however well the doctor said it was quite promising, is at its end. I've started spotting. The kind of spotting that any gal who has endometriosis can associate with a new cycle getting ready to start. I always start spotting a few days before it starts.
I even started to pass small brown clots. I can only guess how horrifying this new cycle will be when it starts fully. I have a 12 mm lining to shed. I've already started with some cramping.
I guess I might as well get the HCG test done tomorrow. Nurse J never puts me in for the beta type she just puts me in for the qualitative yes or no blood test. When I call for the results I'll schedule a mid cycle ultrasound to see what is going on again. Well I hope at least they haven't written me off yet and will allow me to have the mid cycle test. I'll ask if I can chat about options. I need to keep my options open. I need to know where this is going.
Nurse J is also the one that never gives me wipes or a paper to clean up after the ultrasound. Nurse J is not a nice nurse.
Oh and some how I lost a follower overnight. Lovely. Just when I need the support.
