Quick warning. This post is pretty much about female issues. Read at your own risk!
Can I give my uterus a time out? Normally I don’t swell but oh man my hands are swollen and sore. I went to bed late because I felt like crap and was in terrible pain. I can’t even describe the pain. I guess it feels like someone has a crowbar trying to pry my reproductive organs out. I had severe shooting/stabbing pains in my uterus/ovaries and the entire area just has this dull(yet not very dull) ache and radiates heat. This morning I woke up early to terrible shooting pains going from my uterus to my pelvic bone and into my vagina. It hurt… a lot. I’ve been bleeding copious amounts of blood. It’s unbelievable. I feel horribly anemic: dizzy, light-headed and just exhausted like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. In a super hot shower last night my finger nails were purple and so were my hands and still freezing cold.
Can someone take my uterus out? Please? On a serious note I’ve given serious thought to a hysterectomy. Though for now I’ve been thinking about getting my copper IUD removed and going back to the pill. My menstrual cycles have been excruciatingly worse since it was put in. For the first year I bled 2-3 weeks on and only 1-2 weeks off every month. I originally opted for the IUD because I was breastfeeding Fumiko and didn’t want to take any sort of hormones. She’s been done breastfeeding for about a year now, maybe a little less. So really there is no reason for me to not have it removed. I just need to find a birth control pill that agrees with me, and one I can actually get from NARA. Even if my periods are a little lighter that’s more than enough reason to get this sucker out. Not to mention a good chunk of the time it makes sex with my husband painful, I spot in between periods(something I’ve NEVER done), I can’t use my diva cup or even tampons, and I often have stabbing pains/cramps in between periods as well. See lots of reason to ditch this puppy. ZERO reasons to keep it. Now I just have to actually call NARA and make an appointment. My mom told me Dr. Wang is no longer there too. That saddens me. She was a very sweet doctor.
That should cover me for menstrual rants for awhile. :shifty:
Okay I lied. Fumiko is at the stage where she hates diapers. She wants to wear her panties. But, she is still wetting her diaper and more importantly going poo in it. She goes potty every time I set her on the potty, but she’ll also go in between. She only asks to go part of the time so far. But going poo in the potty doesn’t happen. I’m not sure how to get her to want to? I’ve gone so far as to actually dump the poo from her diaper into the toilet with her watching and tell her that it goes in the potty.
Then she does a happy dance and waves and says “bye bye boo boo” when I flush it. I guess when she’s ready she will.
But, I just wish she’d stop taking off her diapers. She’s been doing it when I put her down for a nap and at night when it’s time to go to bed. Today during her nap she apparently woke up took it off and went back to sleep. When I went to get her up I found her sleeping in a puddle. So off to the wash goes her blankets, sheet, mattress cover and owl pillow. If only it were a rare occurrence. But no. We wash her bedding frequently. I always try to praise her and tell her how good she is for leaving her diaper on when she wakes up and has left it on. But I don’t think she gets it. Or maybe she thinks I don’t get it! haha Putting her Hello Kitty panties on over her diaper doesn’t work for her either. She wants them on instead. I know she doesn’t like the feeling of a soiled diaper. Because as soon as she does pee in it she’s ripping it off or heading off to the potty.
Argh. Any suggestions? Sascha didn’t potty train until after he was 3. With him it was pretty easy. Right off the bat he started going to the bathroom in the potty and didn’t wet himself too much. I don’t recall him ever going poo either. He just had no interest in potty training until well after he was 3. She’s been wanting to since she was about 1 and a half. But really started with wanting to not wear a diaper the past couple of months.

I had to make it lighter. I edited my layout and got rid of the dark. Since the last time I really blogged we’ve been through well life. I can’t talk to my dad. Every time I’ve tried to call I get hung up on. I don’t know if it’s him or his wife. I have to assume it’s his wife. I can imagine she wasn’t happy with the way I talked to her when my dad called me to tell me she was kicking him out. So I doubt she wants me talking to him. Needless to say it breaks my heart. I love my dad so much and all I’ve ever wanted for him was for him to be happy. All I’ve wanted was to be a part of their lives. Now I can’t even speak to him. I’ve decided to stop trying. It hurts too much every time I call and get hung up on. When he’s able or ready to talk to me he knows where to find me. I just hope it’s soon.
We’ve been battling bugs over the past month. I kid you not. When one person starts to feel better someone else comes down with it or something else. We’ve been through colds and strep throat. It’s been painful and terrible. Everyone seems to be over it now. Knock on wood… I really hope so. I am tired of being sick and I know Sascha and Fumiko are as well. I also made my first order at Eden Fantasys, they sell sex toys. We placed and order for Valentine’s Day, and got free two day shipping. But unfortunately a blizzard in that part of the country delayed our package. So we didn’t get it until the following Monday. Regardless we’re still pleased with the things we ordered and the box was completely discreet. It didn’t even have their company name on it. I really appreciated that. I’m definitely going to be placing another order when we’re able to. Oh Jenn is also holding a giveaway for a sex toy. Go check it out!
Fumiko has been potty training for quite some time. She goes “pee pee” in the potty with no problem most of the time. But “poo poo” is another story. She’s dubbed them bee bee and boo boo. So we’ve been trying to convince her to go poo poo in the potty instead of in her diaper. Hopefully soon. She’s potty training a lot earlier than Sascha did so I’m grateful for that.
Also seriously I can’t get emo vote to work. It’s driving me insane. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but instead of colorful little circles I get check boxes. *sigh* Halp? I’ve been wanting to try it out since Jenn posted about it but it doesn’t appear to like me, or I’m not understanding something.
