Oh the trickery....Part Deux

Want AF to drop off her bags? Just phone your RE and ask "Is it normal that I am 7 days late?"

*Sigh* I bet you can figure out the rest...

I honestly did have a little bit of hope. But since I did not use any OPK's this month, no temping, no counting, it was all just hope. I am pretty sure I O'ed on CD 24 (very late for me) so we missed the window by a good 10 days....I don't think that Mook's swimmers can last that long.

Another way to get AF to drop in is to have your annual check up scheduled with your obgyn. After having to wait a full month for this appointment, I now have to wait some more-can't be slung up in the stirrups when the aunt is in town.

And I never once POAS. I just didn't want to. Can't handle that one line staring back at me...

Enough moping: we had a lovely long-weekend. Simply relaxing-and FUN! I like fun! If you look to the right, you will see that I have added 6 miles to my walking ticker. We also kayaked over 7 miles yesterday-it was an awesome trip-just what we needed. I got to meet Sam for coffee--it was so great meeting her--we hope to get together again soon! Best of luck to her with her FET this week=)

So onward and upward! A new cycle...new hope, right?

  1. That is so strange -- my first cycle after my (failed) IVF attempt in July wound up being 7 days late too. It messed up a bunch of scheduling stuff for me too.

    Ah, aunt flo, ain't she a bitch?

    Glad you had a lovely weekend, its sounded fun. My DH would be jealous, he loves kayaking.

  3. So sorry that stupid Aunt Flo had to show up. She simply has no manners. I'm glad you had a really good relaxing weekend. We did too and it is simply the best medicine! Better luck next time.

  4. Thanks for the support on my site. . . came on over to lend you some and can see that you need it what with that nasty old biddy coming for a visit. I am thinking about you.

  6. I hate AF. Doesn't she know she's not welcome around her.

    Congrats on the walking, though!

  7. I hate when that happens. AF just sucks. But you're right--it is a new beginning and new opportunity. As sarcastic as I can be, I always try to look at AF in that way. Gives me something to look forward to, which is always a nice change from the chaos of the 2ww. :)

  10. Ugh, I'm so sorry. AF is one cruel bitch. I'm so jealous of your kayaking though...

  11. AF sucks. I wish this DIY cycle had been the one. Glad to hear you met Sam and got some exercise. Wahoo!

  12. AF is never invited yet she always makes an appearance....yet in a twisted way she is a new door opening for another cycle. Doesn't take away the anger and sadness when you see her face though but it soon gets somewhat better as your positivity increases- and you sound like you have it!

  13. Crap. Stupid AF. She's such a bitch.

    So glad you had a great weekend. And, I love kayaking! When we moved up here near the water, it became one of our favorite new pasttimes. :-)

    You know I'm thinking of you and always wishing and hoping for the best! so, here's to this new cycle.

  14. What a b***h - making you wait like that. I'm sorry it didn't work out the way we all hoped but you have such a great outlook on things. Onwards and upwards - new beginnings :)

    XOXO

  15. AF is late for me, too. And I know I am not so her delay is, like, totally pissing me off.

    I hope you and Mook have a fabulous fall of DIY. I will have my fingers crossed for you. Did you ever find a CBE monitor?

  16. Your weekend sounds great. Sorry about AF finally showing though.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Damn her and her stoopid luggage!

    You sound really fit and healthy - something I aspire to!

    Luckily hope pitches up not too long after that crazy cow :-)

  18. ... "So onward and upward! A new cycle...new hope, right?" ...

    RIGHT!! SO right JJ. And well done on your walking ticker.

  19. Good for you for holding out on POAS. Sometimes you got to follow your instincts, but that still makes it hard when it finally does come. It was great to meet you this weekend, we'll have to get together again - hopefully to celebrate and not to commiserate!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, bummer. I'm glad you still had a fun weekend. And I'm glad you're still feeling optimistic! Hold on to that hope!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Geez, I was like 13 days late my first cycle after IVF, it also just took a phone call and a threatened blood draw for her to show!! This last one was only 7 days late...this one will be better and so will yours!!

    Good luck with this cycle sweetie!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sorry about AF. She can be such a pain. I am glad you had a good weekend though!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think we get so messed up by IVF our bodies don't know what to do.

    Sorry the aunt pitched up but good to hear you being so hopeful x

    ReplyDelete
  24. When AF finally departs, make sure to tell her not to let the door smack her in the ass on the way out!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes!
    NEW CYCLE = NEW HOPE!!! (whether it is medicated or au natural)

    ReplyDelete
  26. As we discussed, this happened to me too. I'm glad you had a good weekend and seem to be feeling a little better.

    Keep in touch.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, how I love THAT conversation!

    "I am late. Can I have some drugs to start my period?"

    "Well maybe you're pregnang"

    "Well maybe I just blew a fortune on ART for nothing!"

    Oh, the joys!

    Onward and upward I say!

    ReplyDelete
  28. so glad i finally have a chance to catch up with you, but sorry about AF. even when that logical side of your brains knows better, it still sucks. seems like a lot of us have long cycles after IVF though, i guess that's why they often want you to take a cycle off to let things even out.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That AF...she is quite the hussy. :(

    Onward and upward to a new cycle, with new hope!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Suck. Sorry she was so late and messed with you - even if you didn't poas.

    Good job on the 6 miles to your ticker!!!!

  31. You deserve to mope... Frucking AF....

  32. Doesn't AF always find the worst and often most insulting way to make her appearance? I'm not the most "regular" gal and more than once a yearly exam has been derailed by her unexpected presence. Kudos to you on the walking, kayaking, and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  33. damn AF. bad enough that she has to show up, but to tease you like that is simply unacceptable. at least she does bring along the new cycle, new hope aspect...

    the kayaking sounds wonderful. we love kayaking too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. awww, that sucks. the aunt of lameness has arrived.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thinking of you! Hope your weekend is a wonderfully relaxing one :)

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog, I really appreciate it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Glad you had such a wonderful long weekend, JJ. Hope this one is giving you some great distractions, too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You have a great outlook even though that nasty witch has arrived. I hope you have a good month!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am sorry the AF is here but I am glad to see ou with renewed hope for this next cycle... Good luck
