Think my period is finally here.. not that I like having my period or anything (hey, is there anyone out there who actually enjoys it??), but you know.. It's about 3 days late, which I read can be a result of the Senral I'm inhaling, but knowing that doesn't mean I won't freak out that my period's not coming and is it anything I did (like trying to loose weight or the tiny winy small amount of exercise I do. Yes, I know that's a total nonsense, but you know, must be a "logical" reason why she's not coming..LOL).

Once or twice in the last couple of days had a feeling it's just around the corner, only to feel nothing a few minutes later. Today, more and more feeling it, and going to the toilet every few minutes to check..
I actually don't think I can call it day one yet, but the cramps are here :-). Usually I have quite mild cramps before bleeding (sorry if TMI), but when I actually start my period, then all of a sudden the cramps come in full force, and I often wonder if it's psychotic. Anyway having quite bad cramps now, so my period; menstruation; the witch; aunt flo; etc etc etc must be on her way, and that makes me one happy woman :-).

ETA
It's 22:00 and I still have no idea how to carry on from here.. As always didn't ask all the questions when I met him about two weeks ago (should always go with someone :-)). Should I have a scan tomorrow morning? On Sunday? Should I also do a blood test? What about the meds..
I called earlier (when it was definitely CD1..) and that was quite embarrassing. I mean I dialed and heard it was going on to his beeper so I hang up [going to talk about my period with a stranger??] but then I realized I really had to, and phoned again, and it was a guy.. Anyway I left a message and am still waiting to hear from the doctor.


ETA to the ETA...
23:50. Relief. Doc phoned with instructions (do scan + blood tomorrow, carry on with meds as before).

And while I'm here, a P.S..
Last night apparently was my last run.. I do [did!] the runs at two, three even four AM. I just love it when there are no people (though almost every night there was someone in the street, some car passing by. I mean who are those crazy people out in the streets at those hours??? [it's my hours..]). I knew this running business was coming to an end, with the knowledge that autumn should be here soon [please! please! please!] and the school year beginning so I really need to get back to schedule and probably not a good idea when cycling..
I loved being able to do that. Some nights were harder than others, some easier (and the best were when Wendy joined me. Amazing how much easier it is with a dog not even by your side as she goes here and there). Loved the feel of my body. Maybe I'll pick up cycling [hmmm on a bike..] next. I think I can do that in normal hours [as in people may see me. LOL].

Glad things are moving along for you with this cycle. Good luck. You're like me with my night owl tendencies.

Happy CD1 (as much as possible) and I also love the idea of you running in the middle of the night-- it is poetry, can I borrow it for a story someday?

thinking of you and hoping your baseline tests look great so you can move forward.

warmly,
Kate

Just checking in on you. I love your new header. Was it there before, I dont think so, you must have changed recently! Did you take the pic? Its just darling.

Billy said...

mekate - sure :-]

Wishing - Thanks :-) And yes, I changed the header (and yes, a pic I took) on Saturday. For a very very long time I've been wanting to change it, not because I didn't like what I had (actually I very much liked it), but beacuse it was something I have found in a google search and I knew wasn't o.k [didn't ask for permission..].
