Mind Over Menses

I don’t know if I mentioned in an earlier post that W has a trip planned that could have potentially conflicted with our retrieval assuming two big “ifs” came together to spite me. IF my period came a few days late and IF I responded poorly to stims and had to stay on them longer than normal. Granted his trip is just a golf vacation with pals, but it’s an annual tradition and I would have hated asking him to delay or cancel it. (Not that I would have hesitated for a second! We all have to do things we hate sometimes. Life's hard.)

So, that is apparently not going to be an issue because my period has decided to come a week early! Early! This gives me a Lilliputian 22 day cycle for this month, which makes me wonder a little, but I’m chalking it up to the prometrium from my IUI cycle making things all screwy. I’ll have my baseline ultrasound tomorrow make sure things are all good to go and if so I start shooting myself up right away!

******************

On another note… I am so very honored that Sticky Bun has tagged me for a Thinking Blogger Award! The grant that I was procrastinating the other day is due today and since my ED was all cranky about not getting her draft in time, she went overboard on the edits so I will have to postpone the hoisting of the e-trophy and the tagging of five bloggers that make my mind happy until another day, but I already have some ideas…. In the meantime, Thank you Sticky! For being so nice, you get awesome weather here in SF this weekend. (I like to pretend I have control over such things.) Enjoy!

Maybe the short cycle is a good omen of a successful cycle. My fingers are crossed for you!
