Dry Socket Paste and Pregnancy Tests (Gasp!)

I'm off to a graduation party within the hour, so I don't have alot of time for a great, well-thought out post. But I thought it was time for a quick update.
I've been in pain all week! My lower right wisdom tooth socket has been hurting me terribly all week - I've been on pain meds the entire week as well, which I'm sure is just fabulous for my liver.

I've decided I have a great boss - she gave me dry socket paste to help ease the pain! It was great stuff - it made it feel better right away. I was thrilled. My boss also bought me a Starbucks since we had to work on a Friday yesterday (which we usually don't), so I thought that was really nice!

I finally went in for my follow-up appointment with the oral surgeon, and he cleaned out the hole (which I haven't been able to do, because it's been so painful). I'm hoping it will heal up quickly now and stop hurting. To my friend Hazel: thank you for the get-well card! I got it today. It did not come too late, because I wasn't able to forget my wisdom teeth were gone, due to the pain all week!

Thank you to all of you who gave me encouragement after my breakdown the other day. I'm doing much better mentally now - I know the Lord has a plan, and I'm just trusting that He'll work everything out before the kiddos come along. That's all I can do, right?
Speaking of kiddos - you know how they make you take antibiotics after a tooth extraction? I'm assuming you all also know that antibiotics can mess with birth control pills. Well, yesterday in the grocery store I bought a pregnancy test. I thought it would be good to have one around the house just in case, and especially this month, because I did finish the entire bottle of antibiotics. I felt pretty funny walking around the grocery store with that in my cart - I was thinking that I hope I don't run into anyone I know, because then they'll start expecting an announcement any day. And I'm not expecting to give one anytime soon. Derek and I aren't trying to get pregnant or anything. I just thought it would be good to have around, because . . . well, just because. I just thought it was interesting what a weird feeling it is to buy a pregnancy test - you all should try it sometime to see what I mean! I'm laughing to myself as I type this. Anyway . . .

That's about all that's new in my life. What's new in all of yours?

We had a pregnancy scare a couple months after we got married. Aunt Flo just flat out didn't show up that month! And since I didn't have the option of going into town since we only had one available car, Hubby had to buy a pregnancy test! HAHA! I still haven't bought them myself, but hubby got a two pack of tests last time, so we keep one around, too--just in case!

lol...I did the same thing after I was on my antibiotic for my wisdom teeth. I actually took the test, though, because I was actually a little "late." Turned out negative, though. But yeah, it's a good idea to have one at your house, just in case, I think!

Hope your teeth feel better!

I have thought about doing that: as in, buying a preggo test, just to have one around. But storage space is mighty scarce around here, and I just know someone would find it and start asking questions.

Although, I think I'd rather run into someone NOW when I'm definitely not pregnant, than when I really think I am. Can you imagine how much MORE awkward that would be?

"Hi, how are you? *Gasp*, are you pregnant?!"

"Um, I don't know, that's why I have this TEST in my BASKET."

LOL, Jenene's comment cracked me up!

So glad you're feeling better!!

I have bought a pregnancy test, too...it is very awkward. And I always find myself wanting to flash my wedding ring, as if to say, "I'm ALLOWED to buy this thing!!!!"

I know the feeling! Of wisdom teeth extractions and of buying your first prego test.
