Expect the Unexpected

This post is going to be about my period, totally TMI for those of my readers who are not interested in my infertility posts, just a warning.

Also I just have to mention it's 5:30 in the morning, jetlag sucks.

It has been 4 weeks and 3 days since the miscarriage and guess who decided to show up.

Aunt Flo.

The dirty elusive bitch has shown her face early.

And I couldn't be more pleased.

I did not ovulate. My temp chart is erratic and there's absolutely NO sign of ovulation whatsoever.

But it does not matter.

Because now I only have to wait 1 month before we can start a medicated cycle...if we so choose.

I can also opt to wait for the new year, which might still be the plan, I just like the fact that I have options again and I'm not just WAITING.

Everything I read said I should expect my period in the 6-8 week range after a miscarriage and my RE said at 8 weeks he would stimulate a period for me if it hadn't show up. And we all know how I loathe stimulating anything and really wanted to wait for my dear Auntie to show up on her own.

So, to say I wasn't expecting Aunt Flo for another month at the BARE MINIMUM is an understatement. To be honest I wasn't expecting her to show up at all. I was expected another 105 day cycle.

But here she is, unexpected but not unwelcome.

Good body. For once it's doing what it's supposed too.

Well, other than the not ovulating part.

Baby steps people. Baby steps.

Pun intended.


  1. Glad it showed up for you!! Wish mine would get back into the swing and hurry up...

  2. I'm so jealous! Seriously though, that's great she showed up already. Congrats!

  3. Good for you - one of the few times in life a period is welcome!

  4. glad to hear you got some good news without too much waiting! thinking of you.

  5. Congratulations! Maybe those shitty Chinese herbs really worked!
