Getting Ready

This morning I woke up and had my p4 drawn. It came back looking good at 12.4, so that is a relief. The weirdest thing is happening though. I think by now, it is established that if there is a side effect listed, I am going to get it. I have been on Endometrium four times before now, and do not remember this, but I have a sore and itchy hooha. Yup, it is quite uncomfortable actually. If it doesn't get any better soon I don't know what I am going to do. Did anyone of you experience this? If so, what did you do to feel some relief?

I got an email from GC today. She has started her pills and AF should be arriving in 32 days. I didn't say anything. I wanted to, but I was too scared. She is so excited and I don't want her to freak and leave me, in case I need her. I hope I won't regret this decision later on.

And in preparation plans, I worked all day on my lesson plans for when I'm away. I'm missing four days of school, so it was a lot to get done. It is always so stressful being away, and an unexpected long trip, is just daunting. Luckily, I'm all done and emailed the plans to the supply so I'm good to go. I will spend tomorrow writing Individualized Education Plans for my students and then I go to Denver and relax and not worry about work. Oh, that will be so nice.

I think I called the Homewood fifty times today, hoping that there was a way to stay there. The beads are so much better and so is the TV. Finally, on my last call, they said the magic word, we have a room. We are booked! I am so happy. Things are really falling into place.



  1. I am glad that all the pieces are falling into place as the day get closer. Fingers crossed and thinking happy thoughts for you.

  2. YAHOO!! Your day sounds just as exhausting as mine did getting ready. With regard to the unpleasant side you have any cold packs? I've had a yeast infection before right after taking some antibiotics (apparently this is common) and it was TERRIBLE! So I pretty much had a cold pack strapped to my "hoohaa" as you call it and the coolness provided great relief. Try that and in the meantime call the nurse about this. I would hate for the allergic reaction to get worse.

  3. You have a good progesterone number! So glad you got a room here as I was told that they didn't have any the other day. Flying back today, but I will catch up with you later.


  4. Those lesson plans are the hardest I think. It always seems to take me FOREVER to get them done. And you are adding IEPs too? That's a great deal to get done before you go! But it will all be worth it while you are relaxing in the comfy bed at the Homewood! So glad you were able to get a room there. Great progesterone number too-- I didn't have the issues with the endometrium, so I can't help there. Hope it clears up soon!

    Thinking of you... this is going to be IT for you!
