Oh where, oh where can she beeeeeeeeeeeeee?
I expected to start a little AF action some time last week. If my body were functioning on a normal monthly schedule (ha! my body! normal monthly schedule! LOL!!! *wiping tears away* Yeah, cuz THAT ever happens. Oh excuse me. Ok, ok, back to the actual sentence I was trying to write) I should have been able to expect a period to start somewhere around the 4th. And for the first couple of days of Sept, I had lovely PMS symptoms. I bloated up a few pounds, I was cranky, I had cramps. And then around the 4th, they magically went away so I really expected an AF appearance.
And just to put everyone's mind at ease, I've dutifully POAS, and it sits next me, the control line rapidly darkening with no second line trying to peek through. I'll update at the end of this post when the 5 minutes are fully up.
Now on the one hand, every day that I go without AF is a day longer that I have to get down to the goal weight. I'm currently waffling between barely hitting it, and being a pound or two above it. So yes, a little more time to firmly get that number down is a good thing.
On the other hand, COME ON! Let's get this puppy started! I want to be pregnant already and AF signals about 4 weeks before that can happen. Let's go already! I even wore light gray pants out to a fancy dinner with my folks last night just to see if I could Murphy's Law it into being.
And K wants to take a few days off from work to use up the PTO that he has in bank and that he'll lose if he doesn't use it up by Feb. But he doesn't want to use it during the holiday retail season, cuz that would just make him a jerk. It would make sense for him to take off the week off egg retrieval and transfer so we'd really like to know when to expect that week to fall on the calendar.
If nothing happens by Monday, I guess I'll call the doc and see if we should kick start this puppy with some provera.
The stick confirms that a freebie ain't happening.
