Well it’s been 3 weeks since I’ve stopped my methotrexate. I’m still feeling great! I was soo nervous that the Humira alone wasn’t going to work! So far so good! My psoriasis is also almost 100% gone. Just a few small spots on my scalp. Small spots that I can handle. Unlike my head being covered and me being embarrassed to even leave home because of the skin on my shoulders. I love modern medicine 😍
My body decided it didn’t want to be on my BC anymore. I was spotting for more than a month and then a week before my last pack I ended up starting so I just said to hell with it and didn’t finish my pack. If was gonna have a period anyway might as well just have it and get it over with. I just hate that it decided to start while I was down here in Indiana. I did get some ovulation strips online so I will be able to start tracking when we get home next week! One step closer!
My thyroid meds have been messing with me. My doctor upped my dose and the week I started the new dose I started to become dizzy and extremely light headed. All day long. It was horrible. I called him yesterday and he told me to go to the ER. However since we are out of state at the moment I didn’t want to have to worry about “out of network” bs so I didn’t go. They did call me back this morning and told me to only take half to see if that helps if it doesn’t they want me in the office first thing Monday morning. Hoping it gets worked out. I hate feeling like this. I’m also very moody and I can’t stop crying because I feel funny. Owen probably thinks I’m crazy. Little does he know, I kinda am 😜
Tonight is our last night here. I’m pretty excited to be going home. I miss my bed and my kitties, and I can’t wait to get Owen back on his normal schedule. It’s been a rough two weeks at bedtime.
Well the pool is calling my boys name. So I’m gonna take him down. Tonight we are going to explore a little bit.
Have a blessed Thursday!
Well. I finally went to all of my appointments. All of my doctors are on the same page, except for my rheumatologist. She’s been out of town on vacation so I’m waiting for her to call me back to see if she can get another med called in. I’ve been off my methotrexate for 2 weeks now and I’m happy to say that my Humira is working great. The only time I’m really sore is when I go to bed and right when I wake up. I’m sure it’s because my body is at rest. As long as I stay pain free throughout the day I’ll be just fine with taking some Advil before bed. My med list was drastically cut down. I went from having to take 15 a day to 5. Once I get my new script filled for my thyroid med that will reduce one pill and in two weeks when my OB told me to stop taking my BC that will be another. I’m so excited. I did get my metformin switched from 2 a day from my extend release. I’m kinda nervous about that. It made me extremely sick last time. However, I’ve been taking 500mg for the last 5 months so maybe my stomach will adjust to an extra 500 a day. Fingers crossed. 🤞🏻
My OB appointment went great! We discussed a great plan for the next couple months while we are waiting for my methotrexate to be completely gone from my body. We decided to stay in my BC for a couple more weeks and then once I’m done I will start tracking my cycles to see if I’m ovulating on my own. I will go back the first of september and if I do end up ovulating on my own we will be clear to start trying naturally! Yay! If not we will discuss further plans. She did say that because we conceived right away with Owen on the clomid that may be the direction we go towards again, and James and I are okay with that! Things are going great. No stress. No worries.
Now for the next two weeks Owen and I are spending time with James while he is out of town for work. We may be living in a hotel but hey, free breakfast and a swimming pool. I also get to have my family together and that’s all that matters.
Until next time 😍
