Aunt Flo has left the building – already!!
After my BBT charting and OPK smiley face, cravings, bloated tummy and acne I was really hoping these were all signs that I was finally going to have a “real” period. I haven’t had a proper one since March, and totally skipped late-September and October. My GP induced a bleed in November and I was praying that this effectively pressed a “re-start” button for my hormones… no such luck 😢 Continue reading →
So for the last 3 days my morning routine has been to wake up and POAS (fertility forum speak for pee on a stick). Following my “breakthrough” last weekend I’ve been impatient to know what’s been going on inside my body. I called Dr A last Monday to see if we were going to try and monitor my hormones and see if looked like I was going to ovulate and have a “normal” cycle, but her response was to wait and see.
WAIT AND SEE?!?!?!
That’s all I’ve been doing for the past couple of months, and there will be plenty more of that to come once I start TTC in earnest! As you have probably guessed by now I’m no good at waiting… Continue reading →
I think the Norethisterone did and trick and I finally had a breakthrough/withdrawal “bleed” on Saturday! Continue reading →
So sorry for leaving you hanging! I finally had the gynae appointment last week and it was a little bit of a roller coaster of a day, I needed some time to wind down and process afterwards, and then things got busy with work…but I’m back with my update although to be honest it’s a bit of an anticlimax.
I went to Guy’s Hospital in London for the appointment and I was pleased that I had an early appointment before the clinic had a change to start running late. The appointment letter had said to allow up to 3 hours as they’d try and do any investigations on the day if they could, so I dragged my mum along to keep me company, but I didn’t end up being there anywhere near that long Continue reading →
So… finally I have my appointment with the consultant at the gynaecology clinic. I’ve been so anxious the last few days waiting for this! Let’s hope they can come up with some answers.
Watch this space…
This is just a very quick update post. It’s now 12 days since my last Provera pill and still no sign of AF 😕.
I am stressed but at this stage I don’t think it should make a difference. What I’m waiting on is an induced bleed as a result of a forced change in hormone levels, a simple chemical reaction. It’s so irritating that it hasn’t happened, I think I’m actually starting to believe that I’m not going to bleed. *Big sigh*
Anyhoo… my GP referred me for an appointment with a gynaecologist at hospital. So, the hospital appointments booking people rang me on Monday to offer me an appointment at my local hospital and the soonest they had was 30th December. What??? There’s no way I could live in limbo that long, wondering what the heck is going on with my body!
Fortunately the lady was able to find an appointment at a different hospital to the one the doctor had specified, so I now have an appointment next Thursday at a central London hospital which happens to be a) 5 mons away from where I work, and b) where I was born!
Fingers crossed something happens with AF between now and then, and they’re able to figure something out at my appointment.
I’m going on holiday in December and I want to go without a massive weight on my shoulders so I can truly relax and enjoy myself. 🌴🌴 If all goes according to plan this will be my last holiday pre-baby!
