This Won't Hurt A Bit

Thanks for all the support on the last post. I guess I just needed a little pep talk - and thanks to all of you I got one!

Today was annual exam day! YAY!

Don't we all just love the yearly pap-smear??


Feels like they are scraping out your insides - all the while keeping up a casual conversation as if they don't have a metal implement prying you open.

I think I like the new OBGYN though. She was funny and didn't take herself too seriously. Didn't give me any of that preachy crap that some of them do. You know - the "How often are you excersizing?" kind.

She switched my birth-control pill since the one I'm currently on causes me to skip periods months in a row. I can't take that "what if" crap - so I was happy to switch. ALthough I do like some aspects of the pill I'm on now. Like - no cramps, no pain, and no mood swings. Let's hope the new one (Yasmin) will be have all the good stuff of the last one and none of the bad stuff.

Might be taking a cruise in the beginning of March. Since I've never gone on a cruise before I have no idea what the difference is between any of them. 3 night, 5 night 7 night, Inside stateroom, Oceanview, balcony - blah blah.

If any body has any tips or past experience with selecting the right cruise - let me know.

sticking fingers in ears, singing "la la la" loudly so as to pretend that I know nothing of the yearly pap smear I should've scheduled back in October... its just totally blechy!

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't go any longer than 5 days...I think that's plenty long on the ship. Its fun, but after 5 days I was ready to come home. Also, oceanview is worth the extra $$. Its a lot of fun.

. . . I haven't been on the pill in twenty years . . the whole hormone thing freaks me out - keep my body believing that it's in a constant state of pregnancy? Eeek. But then again I suffer from cramps and mood swings, so hello tradeoff :) but I wouldn't recommend my brand of birth control: no sex. Not much fun at all . . . :) I've been checking out the plant based hormones lately - all sorts of cool herbs out there . . .
