Lots of stuff going on in the past few days... I started my staycation on Friday - hurrah! Some much needed time off has long been overdue. I haven't had a full week's vacation since I started working in 2011, so I have been feeling pretty burnt out. I took a sick day on Friday to go to some doctors appointments and officially start my vacation on Tuesday, since Monday's a stat holiday.
Last Tuesday, my mom, a family friend and I went out to watch Gravity at Landmark Cinemas in New West. It was dark but clear when the car in front of us stopped abruptly for a pedestrian. We had slowed and were at a full stop when the car behind us slammed into us and we bumped into the car in front of us. My mom and our friend ended up with sore necks and backs. :( I felt fine the first day but by Friday, I was stiff and sore, had a headache that wouldn't go away and was dizzy a lot so Vic convinced me to go and see my doctor, which worked out because I had already booked time off to see my ob/gyn. The poor Volvo is now set to go to the shop to get repaired next week; the trunk won't close and the hood in the front is at an awkward angle :(
Speaking of my ob/gyn, the time finally came for me to go in for a consult on what to do next. I had my last procedure done in July and had only had one period since then :( so it was definitely time for some help. She put me back on Metformin, which is supposed to help regulate my insulin levels and I was given some Clomid as well. It was actually quite daunting; she basically said that if we're not pregnant within 4 cycles of taking Clomid, our next option is for IVF. Scary thought - Vic and I had a serious conversation about what we would do if we don't get pregnant. I'm not a huge fan of taking fertility meds in the first place and at this point, I'm in the 'no' corner for IVF for a number of reasons, one of which includes the crazy price tag it comes with. So keeping our fingers crossed and asking for prayers that Clomid does the trick. I apparently was a Clomid baby and so was my brother, so I know it works :)
Anyway, yesterday was a pretty emotional day so I'm taking it easy this weekend. We have a Thanksgiving marathon in the works; I'm hosting for my side of the family tonight and we're going to Faye and Angus' tomorrow night and I'm looking forward to both meals and time with family!
