Back Pain and New Wii

I have had some killer back pain since Friday. I gave in and got a massage on Monday. It helped immensely but apparently I have a few discs out of place in my neck and that is what is causing most of my pain. I have had back pain before and dealt with it by taking Ibuprofen for a few days and living on a heating pad. This time I am torn.
On the one hand, I was given a trick that might help, but there is no guarantee and there is still definitely a problem. On the other hand I have a slight distrust of chiropractors. I used to love them but after a few times of suddenly having to go "every week" I had to back away. Add to that the fact that the process of getting into a chiropractor with my insurance is a GIANT pain. I have to get a referral from my PCP, who when I mention back pain throws muscle relaxers and strong pain meds at me.
I think I will try the trick my massage therapist mentioned and if it isn't better in a week start the process to get into a chiro.

In other news, we bought a Wii!! I have wanted one for over a year, and made the decision about 8 months ago to buy one when we had the spare cash. I FINALLY got the money. I had really wanted a Wii Fit as well, to help with the weight loss. I got a GREAT deal during Tday week and most of it came in the mail today. I had to wait around the house all day for UPS to arrive, which was annoying- but I'm SO happy to have it.

I got a Wii Fit plus which is pretty cool. The upgrades are nice because you can set a calorie goal for the day. So I set it to burn 90 calories a day. I can do more of course but once I hit that it tells me and after each exercise tells me how many calories I have burned, and how many I have left.
It also has some fun new games. I loved the Kung Fu one.

I couldn't do as much as I wanted because of my back, but it was still fun.

As far as ovulating goes, I'm pretty much confused as heck. My temp has spiked, then dropped, rinse and repeat. I am getting negative OPKs and definitely no EWCM. So we continue having sex in hopes that it will come soon, but I honestly am so confused. ::shrug::


  1. *hugs* The wii is awesome. Enjoy the Wii Fit!! :)

    I don't have any advice about the OPK's. I have never tried one because of the false positive rate and PCOS.

  2. Yea for the wii. We have wii fit, but not the plus version. Sounds interesting. I hope your back feels better.
