AF arrived this morning, exactly on time, 28 days after the last visit.
It’s kind of nice to have such a clockwork cycle, but incredibly annoying that it keeps showing up when what I really want at the end of the month is a baby.
I have a questionnaire to fill out for my pending fertility assessment at the hospital in 10 days, and the day after that I have a routine smear test so that’ll be a jolly exciting gynaecologial week all round.
I really am going to try to get a handle on my stress levels this cycle (I always need a strategy at the start of the month). So far I’ve watched a dire comedy that didn’t make me laugh and failed to listen to any of my relaxation audios, so I am desperately in need of some amusing videos or TV programs that will shake up some genuine laughter from my belly.
We’re off on holiday today with the in-laws (I am posting from the car, how awesome is that?), and I’m hoping I can fit some relaxation in over the next week as we’ll have extra help with the boys (a rare treat).
I really like the emotional clarity and focus I have in the first two weeks of my cycle, before the progesterone kicks in.
Great timing for a holiday.
Hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine here in the UK!
