Pill update: Took the last pill just over a week ago. The first couple of days, I felt AMAZING. No more nausea, lowered appetite and no mid-afternoon fatigue slump. Of course, I did get my period, because my body just assumed it was time. And that was rough. Heavier than normal, lots of cramping, and all those bothersome pill symptoms were back with a vengeance.
So, now that all of that is over with, I’m hoping I have more of those fantastic days where I’m feeling like a human being again. Hoping for the best, and still thinking I made the right choice.
Just keeping everyone updated, in case someone out there is also considering quitting hormonal birth control. It might be worth it for you too! And don’t be scared and suffer for a year and a half like I did.
Peace out. Have a great week everyone!
Swimming class update: Bowie’s second swimming lesson was this morning, and we had so much fun! He’s the oldest kid in the class, which allows him to be star pupil a lot. That boosts his confidence, and then he does even better, and so on and so on. It’s been a lot of fun, best $50 I ever spent. Even if I do have to wear a swimming suit in front of a bunch of people.
Potty update: He’s getting better, and in a hurry. For a couple of reasons. One, he has it totally figured out now that if he sits on the potty for a few minutes, he’ll get a piece of chocolate. So, he asks to sit on there about twice an hour now. Soooo….we’re working on alternate treats or “no chocolate unless you go”. Secondly, we stopped offering juice during the day, so he’s drinking a lot less fluids. Makes the diaper stay drier longer haha. But really, I do think he’s getting it.
Sprained ankle update: he was all healed up after just a couple of days. If there was just one word we could use to describe kids: RESILIENT.
Hope you’re all having a great week, ours has been stellar thus far. And, oh yeah, GO GIANTS!
