So I haven’t written in a while. For longer than I care to admit. There’s just so much that has happened since and not all of it good.
So my husband and I went on holiday for 2 weeks and I got to show him where I come from. He saw my house and where I grew up, some of my neighbours and family. We had a good time and mostly enjoyed ourselves. We went to the beach and enjoyed the sunshine.
It wasn’t all easy. I had people ask me about my pregnancy and what happened with my baby. People who don’t even know his name because they are not that close to me and don’t really care they just want to know everything. I just felt like satin well, it’s really none of your business and his name is Diego.
That is defenatly one of the things I did not miss from back home. Nosy people just wanting to know everything about your life. It was hard to have to talk about it but at the same time I’m glad that I did. It gets people to known it happens more often than they know.
So that’s basically that from my holidays.
When we came back to UK I was slightly worried and called to make a doctors appointment which turned out to be 3 weeks after. As I said before I have a medical condition known as polycystic ovaries or PCOS for short. This basically means I do not have regular periods. They can go from very heavy flow to a very light flow. My period comes and goes as it pleases. There are also other complications such as weight gain and trouble looking weight. Infertility or difficulty conceiving. Hair growth not in places you would like and occasionally loss of hair on your head. Anyway it’s not the worst thing you could have bit it’s not very pleasing either. So my period hadn’t made an appearance in 3 months which doesn’t usually happen. So I went to the doctor and explained that I have PCOS and haven’t one any tests in a while and could she maybe book me to check. Previously when it was that irregular they had found a cyst in my ovaries which was causing the irregularities which (the cyst) ended up going away on its own. So the doctor booked me for some blood tests and a scan on my ovaries. The blood test only took a week and a half to book and get the results. So I went back to the doctor and she told me that in a good surprising way my blood test came back normal. She was expecting some kind of hormonal imbalance. So she sent me on my way and I had to wait for my scan appointment which only took 3 weeks to get. I was quite nervous when I went for my scan. I was afraid they would find something wrong with me. So I did the scan and asked if everything was ok and they told me “the doctor will tell you the results”. I know that this doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with me but they didn’t say everything was ok either. So I started panicking and thinking the worst. I had scheduled a phone appointment with the doctor so she could tell me the results. I made sure that I was at home that day in case she had something to tell me that I would cry my eyes out. I waited what seemed like forever. She eventually called and asked me what I wanted to discuss and so o told her I wanted to know the results and she said that everything was normal. There were no cysts or anything that they could see out of the ordinary. This was such a relief but at the same time wasn’t very comforting because I didn’t know exactly why my period wasn’t coming. I knew thatch wasn’t pregnant because I did several tests just to check. So she prescribed me some tablets which are suppose to help with my insulin. I haven’t got diabetes but PCOS has a tendency to mess with your insulin levels which helps to cause weight gain.
I have to be honest I only took the tablets 2 times and have forgotten everyday since then. Nearly 5 months without a period and it decided to show up this week. Don’t get me wrong I’m glad that it did but at the same time it’s so annoying having to have it.
I may also have to move house at some point in the next few weeks/months. My landlord wants to live at this house so that’s us gone. All the houses are so expensive though it’s ridiculous. One person’s wage goes just on rent so as you can see it’s not cheap also if your single don’t think you’ll be moving in your own place without renting to someone any time soon. Unfortunately our wages stay the same while everything just seems to be on the rise. We haven’t found anything suitable yet but have to keep looking.
So that’s my piece of news.
In the other hand my brothers wife, (my sister in law) has had a healthy baby girl 2 weeks ago. They are both ok but his wife had to have some stitches as she tore while giving birth and was a quite painful.
My longest friend I think everything is going ok with her and her baby. She has finally decided on a name. She is due in about 22 days so it’s nearly there. I have bought some things for her and her baby. I just keep spending my money on baby things I can’t help it. Hopefully she will find the things I got for her and her a baby useful. I’m going to see her hopefully honest weekend. Can’t wait to see her. It’s been more than a month since I got to see her.
Life just seems to go by so quickly. Please make sure you take time to enjoy life and spend time with your loved ones. You won’t get this time back.
