I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself :) I guess it's not so much that I'm a baby when it comes to pain just more of an anxious worrier, so i'm most pleased that I didn't chicken out at the last minute. I took 800mg of ibuprofen an hour before and i had also had this pill they give you to soften your cervix(but i dont think they'll be giving them out anymore, something about the side effects,nausea etc.) I just squeezed Ed's hand tight while trying to keep the rest of my body relaxed and breathing. It was more uncomfortable than painful but it was over so soon. It's been an hour and I still haven't felt any cramps. I'm so happy and relieved right now! 5 years of worry free sex without a hindered libido! Hopefully my skin will settle down and my pms mood swings will be less severe *fingers crossed* I'll keep you updated.
p.s. I have a small uterus :x
Almost 6 hours later and I'm feeling great, still no cramping!.....I'm a little paranoid by this, but it's still there... So.... I say the food/exercise tracking commences now!
