It’s bunny season

I do apologise for the lack of updates. I am just incredibly busy right now. I am dragging myself towards the Easter break, when I am having an entire week off. The week will be spent at home on the farm. Lovely.

In order to bring you up to date, dear readers, cast your minds back in time to Wednesday last week. It was 11dpo. I managed to hold off testing until that morning, only to be confronted with a BFN. This was as I was expecting, but it was still disappointing. I headed off to work, and two hours later was spotting. By the early afternoon, my period had arrived in full along with the wretched bone-crushing cramps. Trifecta!

What can one say about all this? Not much, really. I was disappointed, though not hopelessly crushed. I find myself extremely frustrated at each failed cycle. I am taking a combination of drugs that produce horrid side effects, and I really don’t want to continue with this for much longer. However, we can’t know whether it is going to work until such time as I conceive again. Trapped in a feedback loop.

One other comment I can make: quite surprised that despite 100mg of progesterone daily I still only manage to have a 23 or 24 day cycle. Not quite sure whether to be worried about that or not. I prefer not. I have given up trying to figure out what’s going on with my body.

Right, then. Forward ho. As a result of all the above, we will be doing it like bunnies over the Easter weekend. ‘Tis the season, after all. All that chocolate has to be good for something.

    Here’s hoping bunny season will bring you new life, too … and I agree, chocolate is in order.

    I feel your pain with the insane busy-ness. Blimey, what’s going on? Also much sympathy on the negative. Sigh. Sigh, sigh.

    A week at home will be well-timed indeed. Oops. I didn’t mean that. Although, that too, as it happens.

    I’m so sorry for the BFN, and the terrible cramps.
    Not worrying sounds like a good idea, as does chocolate.
    Thinking of you.

    Damned BFN. Damned trifecta. I’m sorry, Andie. It IS frustrating, especially when other things are in play like the meds – you just need the chance to see how it will go. It’s doubly frustrating not to get pregnant when rpl is at issue. Doesn’t seem fair to have to contend with something else:( So glad you have the week of Easter to yourselves on the farm. I hope you got through all the work and can just relax.

    Hello from ICLW and another RPL veteran with continued hope and determination. I just recently found out that I am also heterozygous for the MTHFR C677T mutation and will be discussing that with my RE at a follow-up appointment this afternoon. Have fun with all your weekend bunny activities!
