Overall my doctor appointment went well. My cyst is gone (happy news). She said the small follicles are signs of ovulation, which is good to some point. She said I really shouldn't be ovulating because of the Micronor, but that it sometimes happens. She is kind of concerned about the spotting and cramping that is quite frequent, especially when it is not time for my period, like the last 4 days. I stopped my period on the 27th, I have spotted 3 days since then and today has been almost like having a regular period with increased cramps. She wants me to call in a month and let them know if I am still spotting and cramping or if I am doing better. She still does not want me doing a lot of heavy lifting at work and she said if my cramps get really bad that I need to sit down and rest. She said for right now no exercising. She is pretty sure the pain is coming from my (highly suspected) endometriosis. I told her how my mom was only 31 when she had her hysterectomy and that I wondered if I would feel better if I had one. She told me I probably would, but that then I would be for sure to never have a child. I told her I didn't think I was going to anyway. For many reasons. With my PCOS it would be more difficult for me to get pregnant and then if I did my chances of a miscarriage are higher, and to be completely honest I don't know if I could handle that heartache. Another factor is my husband. While I don't think he is too old to have children, he is not for sure if he wants to have children at his age (he is 47, I am 26). I feel there is more than one way to be a "mom" and maybe biologically is not my way. With everything I have been through in the last few years I am just tired.

My blood pressure is up, it is on the high end of normal but she told me that it is high enough that I should contact my family doctor to see about being put back on Ziac or whatever medication he feels is best. I am not crazy about my current family doctor, but I there is no one else that I would rather be seeing here in Logan, and I really can't afford to travel to Lancaster for a family doctor. I am going to talk to my husband tonight when I get home from work and get his opinion.

I still have 2 and a half hours until I have to be at work. For right now I am just going to sit and relax and not do much of anything. I haven't had a chance to do this in a while. After yesterday at work I am wore out. I hope my boss is not as annoying about the new registers today, I might have to go off on her!
