I JUST GOT MY PERIOD!!!
That's right…after 6 months and 16 days, I got my very first cycle day one. The first one that I've had since I became a patient of CCRM.
Now for the record, Dr. G did say after he broke up the scar tissue in my cervix that I may finally get a period, albeit probably light considering my thin lining. But, people…it's heavy. It is. Full. ON.
Now, that doesn't really change the fact that my uterus wasn't all pink and cushy and plush looking as it should have been less than 2 weeks ago and we're a long way from that being fixed, but, can I just tell you that this was a giant relief for me??? It was a sign that maybe, just maybe, I can still be fixed…
We spent our New Year's Eve at home last night because I'm battling a nasty bout of bronchitis. Still, I can't complain about being at home with my hubby, our fat little lumps of love (yep, the cats), a fire and a few movies. We didn't do our normal toast…you know, the one where you say this was a tough, crappy year, and this coming year is going to be our year…we had said that 3 NYE's in a row…that obviously isn't working since every year seems to top the year before of crap news…instead, we went a little more simple. (Well and we didn't really have anything to toast since my throat and chest has been on fire)
The spotting began last night, and I emailed my nurse at CCRM the second I realized it. She called me back within minutes. (see…this really is major news!) She said that as soon as I see bright red, it's cycle day one…but it will probably be light and that's okay. I was instructed to start bcps on cycle day 3 just to control the timing with my surgery next week.
It couldn't have possible come at a better time either.
Cycle day one…January 1st, 2014.
Happy New Year to you all!!
