Well my period finally arrived and I've been in touch with the clinic to arrange my norethisterone start.  When I contacted them I pointed out that my period is definitely not on a 28 day cycle.  After my first collection, my period came March 8.  My next period started April 11.  This period has taken it's time and come May 14.  Of course everything seems to be scheduled around a 28 day cycle and that is not me.  So I commented on this and heard back that they want to put me on an extra day of norethisterone that starts June 1.  For the first cycle I was on 8 days so now I'll be on 9.  It also looks, based on this, that my collection will be late June and my injection start will be mid June.  So it's still a bit of time yet, but the ball is rolling!

OMG I Hate Waiting!

I'm waiting for my period so I can let the clinic know the first full day so I can plan my norethisterone for my next cycle.  Now, my period is slightly over the 28 day cycle, but my period was like the 8th, then the 10th, then the 11th.... and now it's the 11th and where is my period??  I'm getting a few 'hints' from my gut that it might be on the way, but really nothing. Not a glimmer.  It's ridiculous.  It's like the more I think about my period, the more my body decides it's going to keep it from me.  It's amazing how easy it is to get stressed about things that you normally wouldn't care at all about.  Because if I'm not thinking lighthearted thoughts about how silly it is, I'm thinking more damaging thoughts like, "OH MY GOD THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG."  Which is also silly, in its own different way.  But it's so easy.  It's so easy to slip into these sorts of mindsets.  And I think it's particularly easy to do it when you've only got yourself to talk about it with.  I'm sure there is nothing wrong and my period should arrive tomorrow.  Or maybe it arrives the day after.

It's fine.

But it's also annoying.
