Finally, Some News

First of all, my sincere apologies to all of you for my absence from the blogging world over the past...um, five days or so. I've got no good reason for it. I was busy, yes, but not too busy. I wasn't really depressed or angry or anything either. Just didn't feel like spending much time in front of the computer. But I am catching up on my reader, so know that even if I didn't comment on your post, I'm thinking about you fondly and sending hugs your way.

Second, after several days of freaking out about how my body had just completely quit doing anything, I finally saw blood this morning. Probably the second happiest I've ever been to get my period. (The happiest was last fall--the first time she showed up naturally in six years.) Only 70 days after my last CD1. And exactly 7 days after the last Provera. So, onward I go, into the next cycle, armed with an arsenal of herbs, acupuncture appointments, and clomid. The lovely thing about this period is that it hasn't been nearly as painful as any of the others I've had since being off the pill. I don't know if that's because I didn't ovulate, or if the acupuncture is helping things be less "stuck" and crampy. But I'm not complaining. It feels so good to be done with the last cycle.

That's all for now. I plan to post again soon with a few pictures of our fun outing yesterday. But, seeing as this is the busiest week of work all year for me (it just happens to fall on a short week every year), I'm not making any promises about when that post will make an appearance.

Yay for blood! Ha ha it's so funny how much we look forward to our periods sometimes. I am in waiting mode right now, and a little jealous, but I got some well-needed perspective now since I am only on day 41. So, thanks!

It's probably good that you got a break from the computer; you know all these blogs will rot your brain!

So glad the Provera kicked in and that AF showed up. I'll think good thoughts for you this cycle.

Glad, as well, that you got a break from the computer and matters IF - we all need those once in a while!

I've been on a break from the blogworld this past weekend too. But yeah for AF! I'm hoping she arrives for me too so this next cycle can get started. Hope you have a great week.

Congratulations on ending this cycle, finally! I am hoping that clomid, etc. do the trick for you this month... Fingers crossed!

Josey said...

Yay!! That's awesome that she showed up! Good luck this upcoming cycle - you seem to have a good mix of eastern and western medicine in your arsenal. :)

Yahoo!!!!! I am a bit surprised that it took quite so long for AF to show, but VERY glad she did. I hope that the clomid shortens things up a LOT, and it's the last thing you need to do!
