I have spent most of this week feeling like crap. Turns out I have gastritis, which is an inflammation of the stomach lining. It can have many causes but my doctor thinks mine is due stress, spicy food, lots of drinks in Cabo and was pushed over the edge by the ibuprofen I took last weekend. I have taken ibuprofen maybe twice in the last 2 years but I couldn't find any Tylenol last weekend so I took a bunch of ibuprofen. Bad idea. Now I am taking prilosec and avoiding alcohol, caffeine, spicy food, fatty food, and fried food. So basically it sucks.

In IF news, my last BCP pill is tonight which means I will probably get my period on Thanksgiving day. I am a little nervous, I have been feeling crampy ovary pain and I am worried that my cysts haven't resolved from last cycle yet. I guess I will know in about a week.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving though. We are spending it with B's family. My SIL and I are in charge of all the food so it should be yummy (my MIL is not much of a cook). I have also been trying to think about all the things I am thankful for. I am thankful to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, family, and friends. I am thankful to have a job I love. I am thankful to have decent health insurance to cover at least some of my IF treatments and thankful that B and I make enough money to pay for what is not covered. What are you guys thankful for this year? I will probably not post again until my baseline so I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
