Well Aunt Flo finally arrived. It was about 15 days after the time my apps predicted, even I thought it was going to show up much earlier than it did. I’m posting a day late, Yesterday was cycle day 1 and it couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time, and also, strange. Let me explain.
On Sunday, we decided we would check out a car boot sale (It’s like a yard sale, American friends) the sun was shinning this weekend for the first time in what feels like forever so we took the chance to get out and find some bargains. It was slightly disappointing but while we were there, KaboodleDad spotted a baby football kit, Wales. Our home country, being the huge football fan that he is, he was straightaway drawn to it. He told me to ask the lady how much, I asked him why, since we don’t know anyone who is having a baby and I’m not actually pregnant. He said he didn’t know but he wanted to buy it, that we could just put it away. So I bought it, a tiny price for something that could’ve been expensive and that was that. When I got home I hung it in a wardrobe. There’s no point washing something that isn’t getting used. I didn’t really think much of it and that was that.
later that day I was crafting and got lost amongst my supplies. I came out for air when I desperately needed the loo, It was 12.20am! I didn’t realise I had been out the dining room for so long but I ran to the loo anyway. To my surprise, there it was in all its glory, Cycle Day One. (thank god I have a new washing machine!)
I couldn’t believe it. I’d been planning to phone my gynaecologist on Monday to tell him that my period has not shown, the last thing I wanted to do was go to our appointment in September and explain that I hadn’t actually had a period so I couldn’t take the clomid. Given my menstrual history, it was a possibility.
I was a bit WOW’d out. We had only bought that outfit on a whim and now it seemed like an omen. I don’t know, It’s just weird. I am a little superstitious and I couldn’t help but chuckle at the irony. I mean, when we bought it, I didn’t even know when my period would come, let alone take the clomid and hopefully get pregnant.
So, yesterday (Monday 10th August 2015) was cycle day one of our first round of clomid. It is exciting, and daunting, at the same time. I didn’t really worry too much yesterday because it was just like any other day, a little pain here and there but relatively pain-free. That’s a breath of fresh air to start with because usually I have awful, awful pains.
so far so good.
As always, thanks for reading!
