Well I haven't updated in over two weeks.. but I haven't had much time to sit and just write. JM and FB keep me hopping, not to mention my family, friends and DH's desire to drive all over the freaking place and sight see. I can't get him out of the house in Wisconsin.. but get him near an ocean and he's a regular tourist! I've seen more of my home area in the last 10 days than I had in the previous 20 years. LOL.
I told my family about the miscarriage, and that we have been trying for a while. My aunts took the most interest, one so much that she picked me up a pregnancy test. I got excited when I took it, because there was "something" on the strip. to my eye it looked pink, to mom's camera it looks pinkish grey (like dry blood?) ... and then 4 hours later.. AF show's. WTHeck?! 21 day cycle post miscarriage. I was pretty sure I'd O'd early in the cycle, but I hadn't expected AF until the next day at the earliest.. so not only did I O between CD's 11 and 12.. but I only had a 9/10 day LP!
I'm flabbergasted. I couldn't get into see my doctor here, she's off work for health reasons, which is fine, but there isn't a doctor in taking her place, so her work is being passed off to the other doctors in the practice and since I haven't been in the office in over a year they cannot see me. *sigh* So no thyroid blood work done either.
But now I'm wondering what is going to happen next. Short cycles mean more attempts at ttc, but a 10 day LP is not a good thing. So now I need to go back to Wi, find me a good doctor who is open to not only treating my thyroid disorder, but also trying to help me have less periods in a year. I figure since we're paying cash I might find one willing to test my progesterone and see if it's too low Post O and that's why my LP is short. Helping me get pregnant or not.. I'd really like to have normal length cycles at least! My AF's are horrible (I haven't slept more than 2 hours at a time since she showed up, cramps wake me up and I have to go running for the bathroom or I'll end up soaked in blood) and having more of them just turns me into a very cranky person!
So that's my tiny update. We are leaving Monday to head back, we get the U-haul on Sunday (I hope), if not we leave Tuesday after getting it Monday. I'm probably going to be Oing during the drive again, so probably no bfp for me next cycle either.
