It’s DH’s fault this time!

Af arrived this morning and I blame my poor husband entirely! I knew I was later than normal, by a few days. I was getting ready to test tomorrow. We decided to FD last night, but I was worried he’d “poke a hole” in whatever was keeping the evil hag at bay. He threw logic at me (well, if you aren’t pg she’s going to show anyways…) but said I could hit him if she showed.

I got to hit him. I woke up feeling crampy, ran to the potty…and there she was. DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT I have a hard time shaking the idea that if we hadn’t fd’d she wouldn’t have shown, that it knocked something loose. I know that it doesn’t work that way, that having sex doesn’t knock the bean loose, but it doesn’t help sometimes. Logic is not always enough to overrule the emotional brain.

So on to C3whatever…I’m seriously losing count. I wish my cycles would straighten out and be regular again – they were, before I went on progesterone for a month. I looked at my last 7 cycles. Including this one (and going backwards) they were 25, 23, 23, 24, 23, 25, 26. Before I took that progesterone they were ALWAYS 25-26 days. I took if for a month – and they went to 23 days on average. With a 23 days cycle…my LP averages 11-12 days. BARELY long enough! I don’t know what to do anymore. I don’t know if taking anything would help. I think I might not care.

  1. Jen, I’m really sorry you started. I HATE that when I start the day after FDing, too. It always puts the seed of wonder in my head and yeah, I usually blame DH as well. I hope that your cycle is coming up soon that brings you the bean you’re dreaming of… Hang in there, girl, that’s the ONLY thing we CAN do… Hugs!!

  2. Thanks Wen…it helps to know that I’m not alone. I don’t know how my sister did this for 4 years…
