Well, it took 54 days and some medication from doc, but I have finally started. Which means, of course, that my endo is rearing it's ugly head. My back is killing me and I am cramping like crazy. No matter how I sit or lay I can't seem to get comfortable. Pile that on the fact that I was up with Henry from 4:15-6:30, that I am of course working today, that I have my final exam for my class tonight, and the fact that we also have the Christmas Chorus Sing-a-long tonight, and you have an annoyed blog writer. I mean, my period is 26 days late, and it chooses today to wreck havoc. Just perfect timing. At least I am off work tomorrow, which is classically the worst day of the cycle for me. That's something.

Also, we are thinking about pushing the FET back to March. Just worried about not having our tax money figured out by the beginning of February. Nick wants to wait, and I see the logic. I am just so ready. But... I don't want to start medicine and then have to postpone the cycle because the money isn't here yet, OR because we didn't get enough to cover it. I can't even think about that. Because if we don't get enough from our taxes, then the FET is put off for longer than just a month. And that breaks my heart.

Damn Endo.


  1. We are already thinking about #2...but haven't been activea bout trying just yet. I am so incredibly scared that we are going to have to go through everything again. My Dr. actually wanted me to start trying 4 months ago, but that was just a tad too soon for my liking.

    Hang in there. Hoping that things will work out for the FET in March for you guys! :)

  2. I am totally ready for #2 as well, just not ready financially either.

  3. Oh honey, I'm so sorry you're feeling so rubbish today when you have so much on. I wish you didn't have to feel rubbish at all, ever... damn Endo is about right! I thought I was having some great luck since having my coil out last month, no cramps just nausea but then lo and behold I get the "referred pain" around my left ovary, despite the problem always being my right ovary... Endo just never seems to give anyone a break, right?

    I am thinking of you SO much, you have no idea how much I am hoping everything works out perfectly for you guys xx

  4. Hang in there. I believe we are never given more than we can handle. You are strong and you have a beautiful little boy. You will get through this!

  5. Endo bites the big one. I'm not friends with it either. I just can't seem to win the war I have waged against it, but I'm not giving up.

    Reading this post I am not surprised you got shingles. While I love this time of year, it is so stressful.

    Hang in there!
