My period was due on Saturday last week, but it still hasn’t come. I’ve been diligently doing my pregnancy tests like the specialist said, and definitely not preggers. I’m fine with this now, but just keen to start the next cycle as you can imagine. However – we may have one expensive, awkward and frankly annoying hitch for the next cycle, along with possibly the funniest ‘First World Problem’ that you’ll hear all day!
It’s now Thursday and I have a feeling that my period is coming today. You know the drill – warmer than usual, mild cramps, bloated and just feeling ‘off’. Once I get my period, I start Letrozole on day 2 to induce ovulation, then go for a scan on day 11 to see if its working and how many eggs are coming. My husband is off to the south of France for work from 10-13th March. Let’s do the math….
– If I get my period today, i’ll have my scan on Monday 11th March
– We can try on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th (providing I haven’t released 4,000 eggs!!)
– Then I will probably ovulate on Thursday 14th March – WHEN MY HUSBAND IS AWAY!!!!
I could fly out to spend a couple of days with my husband if I absolutely had to – but the flights will be veeeeeeery expensive, as its last minute and probably one of the most expensive regions in Europe – BRILLIANT!!! I can’t quite believe I’m complaining about possibly having to spend a couple of days in the south of France (what a nightmare eh?!) but it’ll cost a bloody fortune and I feel bad having to interrupt my husband’s schedule when I know he’ll be busy out there. I’m now checking my knickers like a mad woman every time I go to the loo – PRAYING that it hangs on for another day or so!
I know that even if we tried on Monday and Tuesday that week, there’s a good chance that I could still fall pregnant if I ovulated on Thursday, but i’m really hoping that my period doesn’t come today, as it’ll make the whole cycle pretty bloody stressful with these tight timings.
On a happy note – tomorrow i’m meeting up with a woman who found my blog as she is seeing the same specialist as me and is having very similar treatment after also suffering with RPL. It’s amazing that we found each other and that we live so close! We’ve been emailing each other and are meeting for coffee tomorrow, it will be brilliant to meet someone who understands all of this and is going through the same thing. I’m really happy about it 🙂
Could everyone please hope that my period hangs on for a few more days?! Come on body – help me out!!!!
