I am feeling significantly better this evening. Read my Bible, read the Bible to DD, energetically read a bedtime story with her (Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss. She said, “Mommy, we need to get more Dr. Seuss books,” and I agreed.), did a full bedtime routine with DD (pajamas, story, brush teeth, prayer, goodnight kiss), cleaned up the house a little bit, laid out my exercise clothes for tomorrow, and laid out my notes and books for a paper that I’m writing out in the dining room so that I won’t have to wake up DH tomorrow to get up and work on it. Set my alarm for 6:30 tomorrow morning with the basal thermometer by my bed ready to go. Last night I could barely move and pretty much just fell asleep until my husband came home to a still-awake daughter and a wife who woke up angry at him for getting the wrong brand of tampons, so this is a significant improvement.
The bleeding is at about a medium flow now. I think I will try sleeping with just an ultra-size tampon in and take my chances.
