Isn’t it amazing how when we really really want AF to arrive she takes her time and in the months when we’re desperate for her not to arrive she comes early??!! This month being no exception!
Its been 6 months since my surgery, during which I’ve had some really weird cycles. I’ve had some REALLY short cycles, lasting only 24 days, I’ve had some really really bad AF cramps, like I’ve never experienced in my life before and not only are they extremely painful, but instead of lasting just a couple of hours of the first day, they last up to 3 days now and not even extra strength Nurofens settles them.
So here’s my chart for this month:
According to my chart, I ovulated on CD13, so I’m now on the 15th day of my lutheal phase. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a lutheal phase only supposed to last 14 days? I’m a little bit concerned, especially after my rather weird experience last night. Just before going to bed, TMI alert, when I went to the loo it looked like AF was about to arrive. I thought nothing of it, I mean that would be bang on time. Then I woke up just before midnight with excruciating pain in my right side. I swear if I didn’t know better, I would have assumed that must be what an ectopic pregnancy would feel like, except my right tube is disconnected and the “fingers” on that tube so swollen and distorted from the damage that they’re not capable of picking up anything. Elize has suggested perhaps a cyst on my right ovary, I wouldn’t know, I’ve never had a cyst before so I don’t know what it feels like. Today what I thought was AF arriving is completely gone and along with the pain from last night.
So its back to waiting. Now the problem is if AF arrives later today, it will mean that my CD2 scan will be on Saturday morning, which means that I don’t know if I will be able to see my FS and not land up with one of his partners, but I need to see my FS to discuss the way forward and any further tests. IF AF arrives tomorrow, well I definitely will NOT be missing my spa day on Sunday for a CD2 Dildo Cam Scan, priorities priorities!
So now do I hope that AF arrives on Saturday? But then I have my heaviest AF day at the Spa!
