So I posted a few days ago that AF had made her grand entrance. Well, I thought she had, only to find out the next time I went to the bathroom that she was nowhere to be seen. For the past 4 days, I have been spotting brown with some occasional red/pink in there (sorry TMI!) But still she is a no show. BAH!
And then to add to it, I decided I should calculate how long my periods have been ever since I stopped my BC in October. My first was a 49 day cycle! AHHH! And I am yet to see on this one because it hasn't showed up yet, but is is already in the mid-40's. I am so upset about this! I knew my cycles had been long, but I didn't realize HOW long. I have only had 1 period (besides the one RIGHT after taking the pills) since stopping my BCP. This is SO unusual for me. Before I started on BCP I had a very very regular 28-cycle. Always on the dot. And the first time I went off of them to TTC DD I was right back to my 28-day cycle immediately. But I took a different BCP this time, and apparently it is not having the same effect on me. According to the calculator I used, it said that my cycle is considered irregular. And I know this is going to make it much more difficult to conceive, and take a lot more time. I am going to contact my Dr and see what he says, but I am just waiting to have this AF start so that I can give him the exact cycle length for this past cycle. I have had a little bit of random spotting in between periods but not much.
Anyways, I am just so bummed out. I thought this would be easier than it has been. I am trying to remind myself that it is all in God's hands.
But I was just telling DH a few weeks ago that I just have this feeling that it is going to be difficult/take us awhile to conceive this time, and it looks like maybe that feeling is right.
Anyways, I just needed to get this all written down and out of my system. Feeling blue.
