I’m supposed to get one of these things today. But of course, I had literally zero time for space between bookings that I also have the ultrasound today. So this morning, I’m not supposed to pee and the anxiety is building. Which rationally, doesn’t make sense, I’ll be fine, it may hurt but not as much as bleaching my scalp did so… This is a… TMI style post, so if you don’t want to read about it, I don’t blame you.
The Drive Home
I was at my boyfriends place for the weekend, so he’s taking me home, then I’m going to my ultrasound as he has his own appointment, and then he’s taking me to get the actual thing put in. When I was first telling him about the IUD he had just been playing Destiny 2, he made the joke of it being an IED, so we’ve been joking about that a lot.
I’m anxious, and I’m sure that’s normal but I’m still trying to rationalize it. I feel like after my hair and this stupid thing is finally in, I’ll be prepared to get a tattoo!
I’m probably full of shit but whatever... Once I get through this, I’ll be all good. Onto the first appointment.
Lol so apparently if my bladder isn’t full enough I may have to reschedule entirely. I haven’t been called in yet so I won’t know until then but I am STRESSED.
The doctor was very nice, and we got it done. Won’t have results for a few days, which is fine. I’m glad that’s over with though, that was weird.
Which only means the IUD is going to be worse... So far everyone I’ve talked to has been very nice. I’m thankful because this is a lot.
The Actual Insertion … Thing
That was a bizarre experience, but it worked out. Turns out there’s some health things I need to worry about in the future, but it’s there and ready to go. So, let’s see how I do going forward! The doctor kept asking “are you okay?” and all I could say is that the situation was weird.
My amazing boyfriend stayed with me through it all and has been so supportive. He drove me there, and is now driving me home. Surprisingly, I’m in no pain. Honestly it’s great though because I’m a wimp. My mental on the other hand is a little fucked…
My wife is home now, so we’re going to go and enjoy the rest of the day. I’ll check in tomorrow and do a quick comparison.
The Next Day
Percy is so annoying when he’s screaming… So I guess I’m awake. Anyway, morning, how y’all doing? As for everything that happened yesterday, I’m still totally fine physically. But today I’m probably going to look for a family doctor and get blood work done. Woo, so yeah, all in all, the experience wasn’t the worst.
I’m thankful for the people in my life who check up on me and are around. I don’t think I could have done this by myself.
