The Ol' Hag is slowly arriving which means that Cycle Day 1 of this next cycle will be on April Fool's Day. I find this very ironic, sad AND quite typical of my fertility experiences. I TOLD you my boobs hurt! Now my abdomen is trying to compete with even more intensity of pain. POOP.
OK, now this is where I get all Pollyanna and explain the bright side of my period showing up. I will admit it has taken me a very long time to get to the point where I can mention any good in the existence of a period. I went through a very bitter stage and if I was still there right now I would be doing a lot of cursing and bitching. I have evolved, Praise the Lawd!
From all my data (there's lots of data to be gleaned from my monitors, to notes on my calendar, to OPK's and HPT's that never should have been used) it looks like I had one cycle in which I did not ovulated, therefore I had no period. Following that cycle I began another cycle in which I ovulated (very obvious from the abundance of cervical mucous). Of course we did the Baby Dance when I had signs of ovulating but that obviously didn't do the trick because here my period is 15 days later. That's good though, 15 days after all signs showed I ovulated my period came!! That's almost, OMG, NORMAL!
Now we just have to figure out how to keep me in the "normal" range and then also figure out how to keep any pregnancies I have. So far I have lost 3 out of 4 pregnancies.
So now I have a brand new cycle and an appointment to see the RE on Monday. Kiss my dice baybeee... I'm going for broke!
