3x = a streak?

Monday, September 29, 2008

yesterday, the 28th day of the 9th month of the year of 2008, was cycle day 1...bringing the official tally to 31 months of ttc.

but who's counting?

the good news is this past cycle was 30 days. so it looks like things are finally normalizing, as this is the 3rd cycle in a row of 35 days or less. i did a lil' song&dance yesterday when i say it's your birthday, it's my birthday too, yeah...i'll spare you the rest.

i've decided that i'm going to try and embrace my period. we have, after all, been together for 18 years (scary)! and well, i've not always treated auntie flo with kindness. as a matter of fact, over the years, i've been down right slanderous. but no apologies are given...she's been a bitch from day one. however, i'm thinking if maybe i just you know, become friends with her, she'll ease my pain and try and work with me on this whole lets-have-a-baby thing. perhaps if i massage the ego of my reproductive system, it will decide to behave and act accordingly? no?

so far, there's been nary a cramp.

Yay Dana! And wasn't this the cycle that you didn't even get the Clomid? I'm very excited for you! Best of luck in trying to embrace your period. I completely understand your reasoning. I guess I just know that I'm not even close to that myself. If it works, you'll have to let me in on the secret!

Hey Dana! Thanks for stopping by and leaving that comment. I am definitely glad to see I am not the only one having those thoughts about the people who are negative. And I COMPLETELY know what you mean about wondering if there's something wrong with me because I'm NOT down about it all the time. Is that supposed to mean I don't really want this or something? It's ridiculous. I think it just means we have better coping mechanisms or something.

Anyway, I'm just now checking out your blog and very much enjoying it. I'm adding you to my reader and my blogroll now!

P.S. It sounds like embracing your period might be the smartest thing you ever did... hope the cramps stay away!
