My period is missing in in-action.

Today was the day Partner and I were both supposed to start to take the pill. Now, my period was due yesterday. I have been fertility charting for at least a year, and for the past six months I have been using a fantastic chart. I have been spot on 27 or 28 days. Until now. And I am officially at 29 days today and if I don't get my period by Tuesday, our whole schedule is off. Only by a week, but still! Another week of waiting. Waiting. I am not, as my friends will (and can) testify, a patient person.

Is this just the beginning of IVF madness?

Why do we keep getting betrayed by our bodies?

Oh, I'm so sorry. I week is a long time, especially when you thought you were at the point when you wouldn't have to wait anymore.

Take good care!

My best friend got hers yesterday at 19 dpo after an IUI.
Our bodies can be spiteful little bastards sometimes.

I know-- this waiting waiting. I feel like I am definitely supposed to be learning something about patience here.

And Shannon-- your friend... Blech. Spiteful Little Bastards! I love it as a phrase-- it slips off the tongue so easily with a nice fricative consonant right in the middle.

Awful. It seems to me that the minute I started paying attention to my cycle, it wasn't so "normal" after all. Oh, and it could be all the damn drugs.

Take care.
