Game over. AF won. I lost. I have been defeated. Again.
Well, at least I did not POAS!
AF came this morning. I felt the familiar feeling last night before bed, some cramping and the feeling of dampness. Just to be safe, I wore a pad to bed last night. Actually I have been wearing panty liners for the last 5 days!
How annoying! First you think you AF is here early with the cramping and all (see earlier post). Then all the major AF cramping stops and AF still has not shown up, so you think "oh maybe this is the month". Just when my hopes are starting to go up, and I even googled "cramping in early pregnancy", that darn AF makes her unwelcome visit. Can someone please hold her down and shoot her??
So my cycle was 32 days this time. Almost a new record for me. I looked through my Palm and found that the last time I thought I could possibly be pregnant was September 2004. DH and I were going to Toronto for a friend's wedding and AF was late. I actually took a HPT that turned up a BFN. Then took another HPT 3 days later and got another BFN. Even took a Beta test right before I left for Toronto. In the end AF was 9 days late.
9 days!! I was so sure I was pregnant! I could not believe it when I called the clinic from the hotel in Toronto to find out the result and the nurse told me it was a BFN. Of course AF shows up in Toronto while we were on vacation. Unbelievable!
This time, I was cautiously optimistic, but deep down I didn't think this would be the month. See my previous posting here. So now we have to move on to the next month. Welcome CD1.
Of course DH decided to surprise me last night with the news that he might be traveling to CA for a few days for work on the 14th. Well what do you know? It's right smack in the middle of my O window! That's the great! December would most probably be the last month for us to try "naturally" before seeing the RE again in January.
Oh who am I kidding? We've been trying "naturally" for 6 years and nothing's happened yet.
I was toying with the idea that I might go with him to CA. You know, I could do some sightseeing during the day while he is at work, and then get busy with BD at night. DH is not too keen about it since he would be traveling with a few other guys and having a wife tag along may not be most desirable. Oh heck! Not another wasted month!
I need a drink!! Now that AF's here, I can actually have one. Yippeee.....
A strawberry margarita sounds pretty good right now. Maybe have some sushi too.
