Short Check-In Mamavation Monday (Tuesday)

So for the past week (up until Saturday), I have successfully eaten gluten, dairy, and corn free. On Sat I snuck some raw cookie dough from the batch I was whipping up for my son's party on Sunday. But I felt fine.

Then a few hours later, I ended up with the most intense pain I've had in my life. It was like someone took a slegehammer to my pubic bone. It literally felt like my pelvis was cracking in half. The pain was so intense that I started vomitting and couldn't stop. I was shivering violently and couldn't stand up. After awhile I was able to fall asleep. Needless to say, I didn't end up completing the #2weekchallenge. :(

Then, Sunday, I knew I was going to eat gluten and dairy. I was having cake and pizza. So I ate, and I felt fine. Until one thirty in the am, when my intestines started to feel like they had glass in them, and I was up all night long in the bathroom.

So by Monday, I was really dehydrated, and reeling. I also had to play catch up on homework, so I spent as much of the day in bed as a three year old would let me.

So not all of my goals were achieved this past week. On the bright side, I'm going to the OB tomorrow to see what's up on the menopause front. Maybe I'll get some good news, since this week has sucked so badly so far!

Hoping your weeks go better than mine has!


  1. Oh no! Sorry you had so much pain. We've been glutenfree for 3 years and despite not having an issue myself, I can always tell when I have been glutened.
    I have my MLIS too. Yeah Librarians! Hugs mama.

  2. Sounds like you are having some major health issues. I hope you are able to figure out the triggers and keep the pain at bay. I wish I had answers or even suggestions for you. I hope next week is better!
