So, I decided to stop having needles stuck into me, and to stop drinking haematoma-like herbs, as they just didn’t seem to be doing anything for the Uterus of Doom. I have, however, kept doing my temperatures. I suppose that on the vague off-chance that I am allowed to have the wretched coil removed, and am deemed to have enough endometrium to try to get pregnant again, I should probably have some clue about my cycles and when I ovulate in the name of “getting pregnant as quickly and with as little drama as possible” (ha! As if!).
Now that I think about it, I used to know when I ovulated when I had the mirena coil in. It used to wake me up, at 5am, exactly two weeks before my period started. This was probably a bit weird, and the same thing doesn’t happen now. I wonder why? Oh well, never mind.
So, I have continued to chart my temperatures, and have discovered that this cycle, when I am taking no herbs and having no stabbings, my temperature is behaving far better than it did when I was having the treatment. Ironic? Possibly. Pleasing? Yes, actually. I have a strange urge to shout “Ha! I’m better without you!” at Needle-Woman. I must control my childish urges…
Since I removed the offending item from our balcony, another wrapper has appeared, this time on the table on the balcony. It is disturbing me. There is only one item there at any one time, and pretty much as soon as I work up the nerve to remove one, another appears. Is there a neighbour who does this on purpose? Is there a condom fairy who keeps us in a regular supply of used products? Why would anybody in their right mind be amused by this behaviour? Totally bizarre.
I am actually quite enjoying the Commonwealth Games, though if I hear the Aussie National Anthem again, I might scream. They insist on showing it every single time they win a gold medal, and they seem to be winning rather a lot of them, sadly. I think the most amusing part has to be their reaction when the English beat them… Suddenly all sorts of excuses come out, and they move quickly on to talking about an event that they have won. I would quite like a break for Junior Masterchef or The Bold and The Beautiful though. I don’t know where I am without them.
