It has been 7 1/2 weeks since my D&C and still no AF. So frustrating. I just want to get this show on the road! Not that the curtain has come up all that often on this show, but I need to at least mimic forward momentum.
This happened last summer, too, the first time in my entire life that I was not just irregular, but missing AF for an entire 2 months. It was bizarre. I suspect it was the hard core diet I was on at the time (bean sprouts and hour long spectacles at the gym), but that's definitely not my problem now. The warm, yummy calorie-laden bowls I have nuzzled my face into for the better part of this summer should have guaranteed this. Before, I was always somewhere comfortably and reliably between 28 and 32 days. So, what in Pete's sake is going on? And who is this Pete fellow anyway?
Well, I guess I'll just have to wait and see, just like everything else in the IF world. We're planning on doing a saline ultrasound (to see if the D&C left the plumbing in tact) and baseline blood work once AF does make her grand entrance, making our next (and possibly final) IUI attempt the cycle after that. Holy cow. I feel like I've spent this entire journey lying in wait. What, will it be 2009 before the IUI actually does come to fruition? I wouldn't be surprised...
To stave off my obsession to sit and google 'period after d&c' until my fingers go numb, I'll be off camping over the next few days, internet-free. It's with my in-laws (who I actually have a lot of fun with) and an assisted living organization that spearheads my husband's brother's care (he is developmentally disabled). So, parents, caretakers and clients will be there. It should be interesting, to say the least. :) Wish me luck!
