Remember when Charlie Brown was sitting in his class…looking at the clock, waiting for the bell. Wah, Wah, Wah, Wah… Well I feel exactly how Charlie Brown felt waiting for the bell to ring as I wait for my period to start.
I remember the discussion the nurse made sure she had with me was that my period would not be the same after an IVF cycle. At the time I didn't care, I mean what do we care about other than getting pregnant. I remember having to sign a waiver that there was a possibility of developing cancer because of the IVF meds. I signed that waiver like it was nothing. I thought as I signed it "yes, I would get cancer if that meant we had kids". I would do virtually anything to have our family. Well as soon as our failed IVF cycle ended I got my period within two weeks. BAM it was like a hurricane, it was heavy and so uncomfortable. I was happy nonetheless. Then August rolled around and BAM I got another period heavy but not so miserable. Well, here we are in September and nothing, nada, zilch. I remember being a kid and wishing I didn't have a period...I mean who didnt?! Now I am praying to get my period!!
Now I am nervous...why hasn't my period started. Is there anything to make it start faster?
Trust me I did the research....and it gave me options such as drinking lots of water, drinking lots of kale, massaging my stomach, jumping up and down and much more. Okay, call me crazy but I want this to get going....so yes I will be trying more of these as soon as I get home. I have never, ever, ever skipped a period in my entire life, ever. So this for me is a shock....even though I was warned....yeah, yeah.
I keep feeling cramps....maybe they are real or maybe they are fake played by my evil mind.
Well I got to get back to work!
Greetings from worry girl who hasn't started her dang period!
